The residential service industry in Houston and its Greater Metro Area is expected to experience steady growth. Current and future expansion in residential construction of new master-planned communities and new subdivisions will boost the potential client base and drive demand for industry operators.

 

The owner sold the business in order to focus on expanding his restaurant chain.

 

The Buyer, a 20-year corporate executive, started working with us in June and reviewed a few of the businesses we had for sale.  He closed the deal on this opportunity four months later.

 

SBA Financing was part of the deal.

 

Rose Stabler listed and sold this business.

 

Quote from the Buyer:

"Rose did an exceptional job helping and advising us through this transaction. I couldn't be happier with the results. Rose navigated through this transaction with Honesty, Integrity and Transparency.  This is the only way I know how to live my life and operate a business.  So I truly appreciate her having those values too." 

 

Quote from the Seller:

"Selling a business is a very difficult and uncertain process.  Rose made sure that she had me prepared in advance for typical buyer questions and other requirements.  She also pre-qualified my business for SBA financing before going on the market.  Overall, she did an amazing job ensuring expectations were met on both sides and knew where to be involved and where not to in the process between Buyer/Seller.  I highly recommended Rose to any business owner who wants to sell!".
