A Trusted Guide

Awesome to Work With

“Brian helped me negotiate a sales price of $75,000 less than the asking price. He also noticed a mistake on the accounts receivable purchase that saved me another $6,300.”

Ahead of the Game

“Because of DBA on my team, we were at least one step ahead the entire way. I always knew what was next and how to succeed.”

Knowledge is Power

“Brian and his team saved me $175,000 off the asking price, by asking one simple question.”

Highly Recommended

“DBA saved me $36,754 on just the loan negotiations with banks alone. Definitely recommended to work with this team.”
