Our Team

Paul A. McNally

I bring over 35 years of management and ownership experience in business to Central Florida Business Brokerage.

For buyers I target specific opportunities that match up to your previous business experience, skills, desires, and expectations. I add value to the purchasing side of the transaction by making sure the overall sales process and timeframe stay on target in order to have a smooth transition to the new ownership.

For sellers, I assist in determining the value of your business, establish a selling price, identify prospective buyers, facilitate negotiations, and lead all involved to a smooth closing. This will allow the present business owner time to concentrate on the operation of their business during the selling process. I work as a team with attorneys, CPA’s, Banker’s, and other professionals to provide a full range of services to my client’s.
