Our Vision

Our priority is helping you reach your goals for your Life Beyond Business.


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.

Karen Zaborac Former Business Owner

I have acquired over a dozen small businesses during my career, both directly from owners and through business brokers. Dave Driscoll led one of the most organized and transparent processes I have experienced. Dave keeps his “eye on the ball.” That is, he seeks to maximize the value for his client while ensuring that a deal gets done. In my interaction, I was the buyer while he represented the seller. He was truly an “honest broker” as we worked through the transaction. It was a pleasure doing business with Metro.

Charlie Walch Chief Business Officer, Pluton Biosciences

The Metro Business Advisors team was persistent in finding the right buyer for my business several years ago. Since then, Dave has continued to be a valuable resource and sounding board as I’ve engaged in other business ventures.

You were a champ being caught between the immovable object and irresistible force. Great job. Thanks so much.

Glenn Buyer

We wanted to say thank you. You've been superb to do business with. We've already mentioned you to others and will definitely continue to do so.

Carl and Lori Sellers

Metro Business Advisors provided us with a detailed comprehensive sales plan with personable service thru out the process from start to closing. Without them...it would not have happened.
