We sell more businesses faster
We're selling more businesses than other brokers, and we are selling them faster. With an average sale agreed in just 6 months. That's half of the time other agents expect to have you sold.

No advertising fees up-front
We won't charge you up-front to advertise on the main business for sale platforms. We're focused on getting your business sold and not selling to you.*

Hilton Smythe guarantee
100% guarantee to advertise your business on all of our third party platforms, throughout your instruction, including BFS.com, Daltons and Rightmove. Other brokers may only advertise on one or two platforms at a time.**

No minimum periods or cancellation fees
We don't commit you to a minimum period and we won't charge you a cancellation fee; we just ask for 6 weeks' notice to end your agreement with us, so if you don't like us, you're free to go elsewhere.
