Tim is a graduate of the University of Tennessee with a BS in Chemical Engineering and started his career in chemical sales with a Fortune 500 company. After several successful years in chemical sales, Tim had the opportunity to purchase his first business which he owned and operated over an 8 year period. This business was in the specialty contracting industry and grew in size and value and was eventually sold. Tim purchased another business in the retail paint industry and operated that business for another 2 years whereupon the business was again successfully sold to a new owner. The involvement of buying and selling his own businesses lead Tim to pursue a career in business brokerage where he purchased a franchised business brokerage territory for the Augusta, GA/Aiken, SC area in 1998 and later purchased the Savannah, GA territory in 2000. In 2009, Tim sold both of his offices, but remained involved in the industry as an agent until starting Integra Business Brokers in 2015. Over the past 17 years Tim has facilitated over 200 business sales, both large and small, where his experience and expertise have provided for a smooth and mutually beneficial transition from the sellers to the buyers. Tim is also a licensed real estate broker in the states of Georgia and South Carolina.
For the past 41 years I have been in business for myself. During this time period I purchased and sold businesses. This experience helped shape my desire to work with the purchase and sell of businesses.
I began my career as a business broker in 1998 with Sunbelt Business Brokers. As a real estate person, I have specialized in the purchase and sale of businesses, however, I have also worked as a commercial agent and as such, my sales have included land zoned commercial, land for development and large tracts of land.
My greatest satisfaction has come from representing buyers and sellers with the sale of businesses. While it is challenging, it is also very rewarding because there are always unexpected issues that arise and being resourceful enough to find a way through the difficulties and see the closing materialize is satisfaction beyond the commissions. As an associate broker with Integra Business Brokers, I hope to be able to use my experience to assist you in either the sale of your business or the purchase of an existing business.
