She offers her seller clients a consultative, unique approach to the analysis, packaging, marketing and transfer of ownership of their $1MM to $10MM revenue business.

As a top-performing, high-energy business advisor, Margot’s passion is directed toward attracting the right acquiring parties to an opportunity.

She takes great pride in providing her engaged sell-side clients near-future guidance to maximize their business’ value; because current circumstances might warrant optimizing an operation so unrealized value isn’t left on the table.

She is the quintessential intermediary – connecting clients and facilitating agreements to close deals and allow business sellers to move on to the next phase of their life.
