In the spring of 2006, W. Greg Rothman, the President/CEO of RSR REALTORS and Tony Darcangelo, the President/CEO of MCA Business Broker began discussions on how the two firms, independently owned and headquartered in Central Pennsylvania, could work together to better serve the needs of small business owners looking to sell both their business and real estate assets.”The buying and selling of businesses is a critical enterprise in the local market. The transaction often includes the sale of real estate with the business. This alliance with the premier business brokerage firm in the area meets a previously underserved niche,” said Rothman.

The result of the discussions was an agreement that MCA and RSR would benefit from a strategic relationship that provides joint services to clients who are looking to sell their privately owned business with the real estate. Examples of small businesses that will be served well under this strategic relationship include restaurants, motels, auto service centers, stand alone retailers, contractors and quick service food outlets, to name a few.

Business for sale listings that included real estate was a small percentage of the overall transactions completed annually by MCA. MCA’s new strategic relationship with RSR REALTORS allows both firms to provide business sellers with many options for achieving their exit strategy goals. The business seller who has property to sell along with the business now has the benefit of having two expert firms market their business with the real estate to qualified buyers.

Tony Darcangelo, who is a Graduate of the School of Business Brokerage and a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson, had this to add, “Business for sale listings that include the real property along with the business, provide much greater leverage for getting a deal financed thru traditional commercial lending sources. Our objective for having a strategic relationship with RSR REALTORS is to ensure that all possible divestiture scenarios regarding a seller’s business and property can be serviced directly by MCA. This strategic alliance expands the transactional options for the clients of both MCA and RSR and is truly a unique service offering in this market.”

MCA/RSR recently listed automobile service garage and business in operation for over 35 years. According to the owner of the business, “We chose the alliance of MCA/RSR because it addresses our specific needs. We have both a business and real estate to liquidate, and this will eliminate the need to seek out separate entities. An added plus is that we get the combined resources of both firms in one package.”
