The Stansberry Firm has a proven track-record of over 130 transactions with total enterprise value of over $1.2B. We have an extensive network of qualified buyers consisting of national and local strategic acquirers, private equity and high-net worth individual investors.
We work with business owners to develop the right strategy to sell their companies or identify financial investors to fuel business growth. For some business owners, finding a buyer for a 100% buyout is the right course. For others, finding the right investment partner to take a minority or majority stake in the business may lead to incremental growth that will lead to a higher valuation in the future. Regardless of the situation, The Stansberry Firm will work with current stakeholders to ensure a profitable and successful divestiture.
We can’t put it into words the gratitude we have towards The Stansberry Firm for handling our business deal. Gary has decades of experience in executing rental transactions, and it showed during our acquisition. Throughout the process, Gary was indispensable with his extensive rental acquisition knowledge as he guided us through this life changing journey. He knew when to push and when to hold. We highly recommend Gary and his team!

Experience is meaningless without honesty, integrity and fairness. The Stansberry Firm wants to get to know you, as the business owner, and learn about your business. Likewise, it is important for you to get to know us, our qualifications and our experience.
As your business sale representative, The Stansberry Firm provides you with a turn-key service in concert with your accountants and attorneys:
Our standard retainer fee to start the process is $7,500. The standard fee may be somewhat higher (usually not more than $15,000) on more complex transactions including those that involve multiple entities or multiple locations. If your business does not sell, you will not incur any other costs or fees. If we sell your business, we will apply your retainer fee against our commission or success fee. In general, our success fee is 8% of the first $1 million, 6% of the second million, 4% of the third million and 2% thereafter. We can also work on a fixed percentage once we have a feel for the transaction size.
The Stansberry Firm has a long and storied history of working with businesses in a variety of industries. Here are some examples of just a few of our hundreds of satisfied clients.
I would like to express our appreciation for the professionalism and diligence that Gary and Carolyn Stansberry exemplified during the negotiation, due diligence and transaction process of the recent sale of Celebration. They brought a level of knowledge and expertise to the transaction that exceed expectations.
The Stansberry Firm led the charge with the sale of our company, and we couldn’t be more grateful. Their expertise, forward thinking and pursuit of our best interest won our trust immediately, and in the end, executed a sale that met our highest expectations.
Words cannot describe how impressed I am with Gary and Carolyn’s grasp on this industry; the sale process; the methods to valuation; and above all how to facilitate effective conversation with potential buyers. Had I tried to sell this business myself, I am certain I would have netted much less, let alone the fact it would not be sold yet.
I am very pleased with The Stansberry Firm’s efforts in our recent sale of Florida Contractor Rentals. From day one, it was obvious they knew what they were doing as they outlined the process and went right to work.
"I was very impressed with The Stansberry Firm's expertise, knowledge and contacts; they know the rental industry and they know the oilfield. They quickly brought several serious and qualified buyers to the table. Gary and Carolyn are true professionals and I hope to work with them again in the future."
