Amerivest Group


"I hired JM de los Rios with Amerivest Group to sell my food wholesale distribution business. I was skeptical when I first hired him because I had a bad experience with another business broker in Miami. That’s why it was important to me to find someone professional, with integrity and experience. I’m very happy to say that’s what I found with JM. He was very through, he collected all my documents and put them together so that a buyer could really understand what they were looking at. He advertised the business, as promised, with heavy marketing and produced a cash buyer in less than 2 months. Overall, the deal was very clean and fair on both sides. I felt confident that he had all collected documents necessary to protect me legally. I’m happy to say that this transaction went very well, I got a great price for my business and was able to move on without and ties to the business. I would recommend Amerivest Group to anyone considering selling their business."

"I just wanted to say thank you for everything you did to sell my commercial janitorial business. When I first listed the business, I realize that I might not have been entirely ready to sell it, after owning it for 33 years, I had mixed feelings. You were patient with me until I came to terms that it really was time to sell it. I know what other similar businesses usually sell for in my industry and I can’t tell you how thrilled I am at the price that you sold for! I feel that you listened to concerns about selling the business and were able to overcome all the obstacles in the deal. I know the buyers were not easy to handle and several times it looked like it might all fall apart but you stuck with it and kept talking it out with them until they felt comfortable. Thank you again for all your efforts. You were honest and professional, and I would definitely refer you any business owner."

We met JM de los Rios as a referral from friends whom owned several coffee shops. They had recently sold two of their four stores through JM and encouraged me to connect. We had never sold a business before. JM allowed me to bring in my ‘bulldog’ finance advisor and worked tirelessly to accommodate some changes to our contract. From the time we listed, until the time we closed, JM communicated with us regarding what we needed to do in order put our best foot forward to get the business sold in a timely fashion. I can only guess there were so many inquiries because of his experience and longevity in this business. I felt protected from the window shoppers, encouraged by the serious leads we actually met with and in the end JM negotiated well on our behalf. All in all, JM was a professional and represented us well. Our attorney even said that the contracts he submitted for us to use clearly protected our interests. I would seriously recommend JM and Amerivest Group to anyone wanting to sell their business.

When we searched for an appropriate agent to sell our restaurant in Hollywood in August 2017, most business brokers quickly dismissed this opportunity since the sale price was going to be only 220K. After our initial meeting with JM, we knew that we had found the right person for the job. Given the complexity of selling at the Hollywood Hill Shopping Plaza, we were looking for a very specific buyer which JM found in less than 4 weeks. He had no hesitations in taking on this transaction, knowing well that there was a difficult landlord, financing contingencies and Hollywood Hills Shopping Plaza requirements which were going to be part of this sale. At the end it went off without a hitch. We could not have been more satisfied with everything relating to the sale and the buyer who was also represented by JM is extremely satisfied with the purchase. The business has grown significantly since the sale. The one thing that impressed us most with JM is that he sells businesses because he has a passion for doing it, not because he has to. He has a truly genuine attitude towards putting together business deals in which everyone is satisfied. For any future sales or purchases we would only consider JM de los Rios.

"I first engaged Amerivest Business Brokers to sell my Real Estate Agency. I found JM de los Rios to be extremely knowledgeable in understanding the market for small RE agencies. They treated me and potential buyers with respect throughout the process and handled the entire transaction with honesty and integrity. They responded very quickly to any questions I had, and I felt they had a high priority on communication. Thank you for the team effort in getting my business sold."

What a wonderful experience having you handle the sale of my business. You really cared, and you knew how badly I wanted the perfect person to have my “baby.” You got that person for me in record time and I felt secure that you knew exactly what to do and you did it! Thanks so much. What might have been a stressful situation was pure pleasure. What a professional!!

Debbie Kapplan

Thanks for making it easy to sell our business, JM.
We had no idea how to formulate our exit strategy, but my wife told me we were moving. Your company took us from an operating company, figured out our valuation, listed our business, and had it sold in less time than I would have imagined. The nicest part was how very little time, and effort I had to put forth. Your guys did everything. All I had to do was continue to operate.

Amerivest Business Brokers and JM de los Rios were outstanding in selling our Travel Agency. He took his time to make sure we were fully informed before making the decision to sell our agency. He worked with our accountant to make sure all the financials were in order, and then he stayed in touch with us and kept us in the loop as the marketing progressed. We are so glad we retained JM because he is an excellent and accomplished negotiator as well as being totally knowledgeable and professional in all aspects of his business.

We are very pleased to recommend JM de los Rios and Amerivest Business Brokers. Within just a few weeks, they were able to secure several prospective buyers with two full price offers. We were impressed with JM’s business knowledge, skill and wide range of business contacts. It was readily apparent that their business acumen was gained from many years of experience in a broad selection of industries. As this was our first time selling a business, we had no experience with the process. JM did a terrific job of guiding us through the transaction, from determining a sales price, to negotiating with buyers and implementing the handoff of the business assets. We could never have done all this without his help, and he comes with our highest recommendation and gratitude.

I would like to take this time to thank Amerivest Business Brokers, Inc. for your perseverance and diligence in assisting us with the sale of our Franchise Business. Your hands-on assistance with the Buyer’s franchise approval process was invaluable in expediting the sale. Furthermore, due to your thorough screening of all potential buyers, time was not wasted on unqualified prospects. Without your hard work, it would not have been possible.”
