A few weeks ago we wrote about a business broker team that works with area immigrants. This week we caught up with Tony Dempsey to learn more about his organization. He informed us about his standing offer to provide business owners with free valuation estimates and we decided to share this with the readers of Immigration Sarasota.

Year over year we will update the Valuation so you will know exactly what your market value is, whether maintaining, increasing or declining. I have included an attachment that defines the information we will need for the valuation. This information is usually readily available from your accountant.
Here is the attachment Tony mentioned: Sunstate Business Valuation Information.
Remember, buying a business can be a viable avenue for obtaining a temporary or even permanent visa to the United States. Purchasing commercial property can also help one qualify for an investor or entrepreneur visa.

Sarasota Immigration Attorney P. Christopher Jaensch
One viable strategy for qualifying for a US visa is to invest in or buy an existing US business. There are several visas that an investor can qualify for including the E2 Investor Visa, the L1 Intra-Company Transfer Visa, and the EB-5 Investor Green Card. For those who might be looking for these types of visas, the Adkins Florida Group can help you find an appropriate business to purchase or invest in.
Based in Bradenton, FL, this 5-member team of real estate and business brokers brings a wealth of international experience and industry expertise to the table. The Adkins Florida Group was founded five years ago by James P. Adkins and his father, James E. Adkins.
Mr. Adkins the younger worked as a surveyor for many years, travelling the globe. Australia, Western Europe, and Canada are just a few of the places he’s called home. He always returned to the Sarasota-Bradenton area after his travels and so it was a natural choice of location to start his business.
The Adkins Group is Based in Bradenton, FL
Mr. Adkins and his partners are members of the Business Brokers of Florida (BBF) Association. Out of 100,000 licensed real estate professionals in Florida, only 900 are part of the BBF. Being one of the few real estate brokerages in the Sarasota-Bradenton area that is part of this association means the Adkins Florida Group has expertise and specialized knowledge that few other firms in the area can match. They have been connecting entrepeneurs and investors to sound businesses for 5 years now.
In addition, the Adkins Florida Group helps their clients take advantage of the many new business incentives that are available in Sarasota and Manatee counties. Such incentives include tax breaks for new business owners and for hiring local workers. Mr. Adkins ensures that new business owners are introduced to the appropriate contacts to help them take advantage of these programs.
Florida, and Manatee and Sarasota Counties in particular, have much to offer a prospective business owner or investor. The road and rail network is first rate, with Interstate 75 passing through both counties. The additional presence of Port Manatee is making the area a hub for intermodal shipping. Florida enjoys a multi-cultural and well-educated workforce, and the Florida lifestyle attracts even more talent to the state. None of these factors take in to account Florida’s geographic advantage of being the gateway to Latin America.
To contact Mr. Adkins call 941-713-0635 or visit their office at 5239 Manatee Avenue West, Bradenton, Florida 34209.
