Hilton Smythe to introduce selling model for Scottish businesses

Business broker Hilton Smythe is challenging the industry to become more fair and transparent by introducing its risk-free model for selling to Scotland.

The firm, which already sells businesses faster than other brokers, is launching a new selling model with a new valuer, based out of its Glasgow office. Growing the business with a new team member will give the firm more opportunity to demonstrate its commitment to making selling regulations more customer focused.

Hilton Smythe’s new valuer, Neil Young, joins the team from Coupar Angus, Perthshire. Neil has worked within the retail property sector for more than 12 years, as well as working for a large corporate estate agency and one of the very first online estate agents.

Gareth Smyth, Group Managing Director at Hilton Smythe, said: “It has always concerned me greatly that people are at risk of losing money when they sell their business. In order to keep our economy healthy, we must make things easier for entrepreneurs to do business, whether it is when they start up, or it’s their exit strategy.

“Particularly in an aging population, people need to be able to have the confidence to sell their businesses, or they will just shut down when the time comes to retire. If we want the high street to thrive, we need to make selling a viable option for everyone.”

Neil Young said: “My aim has always been the same from day one, to put the client first. I take pride when I know that I have offered first class advice and delivered an outstanding level of customer satisfaction in the service that I have provided.

“I’m delighted to be working for Hilton Smythe, and to be helping people in Scotland sell their businesses without risk. As an experienced estate agent, I’ve seen a lot of people buy and sell property, and I know how concerned they can be about losing money. By eliminating the risk it gives more confidence to the sellers to move on to their next career.”
