Distinct Advantages of Working With Kerrigan Advisors

Exclusively a Sell-Side Advisor

Our buy/sell advisory services focus exclusively on serving dealership sellers. We work with you to develop the best sales strategy to maximize your value.

High Level of Client Service

We believe in the golden rule – we treat your business like it is ours. We provide you with the level of client service we would expect ourselves.

Engaged Clients, Not Listings

We do not take listings or build “inventory”; rather, we focus on a select number of higher value clients. We believe your business is far too valuable to be sold any other way.

Licensed Sell-Side Advisor

Our managing directors are fully-licensed with FINRA and the SEC to complete asset, stock and real estate sales. Working with an unlicensed advisor can potentially unwind your sale.

Highly Specialized Team

Our team is comprised of industry leaders in dealership buy/sells, accounting, real estate, private equity and capital raising. No other firm has the breadth of skills and client support services.

Transaction Terms Database

Our database of current transaction terms provides you and your attorneys with a distinct advantage when negotiating the sale of your business and real estate.

Our Proprietary Buyer Database - Over 500 Buyers Nationwide

Kerrigan Advisors’s proprietary database is the largest and most robust in the industry. Our database tracks key aspects of a buyer’s investment criteria, ensuring we only bring the right buyers to our sell-side clients. Browse the number of buyers by state below.
