Metro’s process is a customized, comprehensive, multi-phased approach to the sale of your business.

Our process is not a “one size fits all” process for you or us!

Some brokers in the St. Louis area will list companies for no fee. Their model is to post business listings on their Internet site and hope an interested person finds your business and inquiries.

However, Metro does not employ that model when it comes to selling your company.


Instead, we are M&A advisors who are proactive in the development of marketing and financial information to position your business, secure prospects, and work with you in negotiating the terms and closing the sale.

Metro Business Advisors is a member of the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA)

Additionally, we stay on top of industry trends, news, and resources through membership in International Business Brokers Association, Inc. (IBBA) and are active in the establishment of Mid-America Business Broker Association (MABBA).

Metro Business Advisors is a boutique firm located in St. Louis, Missouri that provides services to small business owners looking to sell their business confidentially for the most profitable selling price.

“Selling my business seemed overwhelming, so I was relieved that my business broker, Dave Driscoll, helped me through each step of the process. He was a business owner, too, so he knew what I was going through. I was able to focus on my business, knowing everything was being taken care of behind the scenes. From the business valuation through marketing the business, all the way through closing the sale and transitioning, the professionals at Metro Business Advisors set realistic expectations and kept my future in mind.”
