I recently met up with Brian Dumas, who is a Business Transfer Specialist at Murphy Business Brokers in Sarasota.
Brian has been in Sarasota for over 20 years, but is originally from Canada. During the course of his career, he has established, purchased, and sold a number of his own businesses in the U.S. and Canada and has a lot of personal experience to offer.
As a side note, his wife, Shawn, is an Acupuncture Physician in Sarasota and has a Master’s degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine (see her website: http://acupuncturehealingcenter.com/). Brian also has a passion for Porsche automobiles
Brian agreed to send me monthly summaries of businesses that are for sale in Sarasota, Charlotte and Manatee Counties. I will be happy to share this information on request.
Some examples include:
1. An art gallery in Sarasota with a listing price of $120,000
2. A health food retail store in Manatee with a listing price of $119,000
3. A dive shop in Charlotte with a listing price of $325,000.
Please note that I do not have any information about the income of these businesses, the exact location, the number of employees, the suitability for immigration purposes. This information you would have to get from Brian himself (you can call him at 941-925-1511 or 941-650-5991 or email him at Bdumas@murphybusiness.com
