VALUES & ETHICS
OUR CORE BELIEFS
God and Family are more important than Business. We will not compromise our faith or families for money, nor ask others to.
Opportunity is Unlimited. We are not all fighting for a piece of “the pie”. Rather, we are entrepreneurs and know how to bake pies from scratch! We realize God has given us all the ingredients we need and that we can grow and multiply them!
The world isn’t win/lose. We find the win/win every day and work with and alongside our competition to create the best outcomes for our clients. We don’t work “against” competition, but see our competition as the colleagues, friends, allies, and useful resources that they are.
Business IS Personal. We are who we are inside and outside the workplace and highly value authenticity and integrity. We try to treat others in business like we would our friends and family.
HOW WE DO BUSINESS
We always put ourselves in YOUR shoes. If we wouldn’t do it in your situation, we recommend you don’t do it, even if it costs us money.
We use technology better than any other Brokerage and Consulting Firm. In today’s world, the best information and technology is absolutely essential for best business practices. We stay up-to-date on the latest tools and techniques and leverage technology for our and our clients’ benefit.
We are as transparent as possible with how we do business. No bait and switch. No “gotchas”. No surprises. No hidden fees. We clearly communicate what we can and cannot do for you, set realistic expectations, and deliver. You will know up front how we get paid and what we must deliver to earn that money.
We cooperate. We work with other brokers (co-broker) when it makes sense. We pay finder’s fees. We leave no stone unturned to find the best outcomes for our clients.
We do not represent or refer unethical businesses or people. We don’t sell businesses that we wouldn’t be proud to own. Just because something is legal doesn’t mean it’s ethical. Any business or business person that exploits and takes advantage of women, the poor, minorities, etc… for profit, we will not sell or recommend, regardless of the financial benefit available. We believe that small businesses should be making the world a better place, and those are the kinds we choose to work with.
We are always learning. We heavily invest in ongoing education and constantly earning new accreditations and keeping up to speed with the latest business information and technology. We read books and trade publications daily and attend several conferences and training events annually. Learning is a way of life.
