As I mentioned in my short video, my name is Bill Blair and I have been a Tampa business broker for over 10 years. I’m currently with Realtec Business Brokers, located in Palm Harbor, Florida – a Tampa bay suburb. Although I am located in the Tampa bay area, I can help you buy a business anywhere it’s located in Florida, from Jacksonville to Key West and from Pensacola to Fort Myers.
Now a little about me and why I’m uniquely qualified to help you buy your business.
My entire 40 year career has been in professional sales. I joined IBM after graduating from Va Tech in 1970. At IBM I received extensive sales training to sell their million dollar computer systems to the federal government in Washington, D.C. Successfully selling computers for 10 years, I was promoted in 1980, and spent the next 5 years as a Federal Sales manager. I took early retirement in 1986 to come to Florida to start a business with a partner. Unfortunately we could not agree on a business plan, disappointed I decided to strike out on my own and contacted a business broker to help me buy a business. I eventually bought a manufacturing business and in my first year won a sole source contract with Walt Disney World.
Over the next 15 years I bought, managed and sold 3 successful businesses in Florida. This experience has given me the the experience to safely guide a buyer through the buying process. It was a natural transition from business owner to becoming a business broker.. Who better to help people buy a business than a previous business owner who had bought and sold 3 businesses in Florida?
I’ve spent the last 10 years working Business Brokerage. In all humility, after 40 years of professional selling , I’m good at what I do, and think I’m uniquely qualified to help a buyer buy a business.
