Bonnie Reese, 1st Generation Business Broker

Bonnie Reese, 1st Generation Business Broker

Bonnie Reese was the first in the family to start in Business Brokerage, which was in 1977. This was the beginning of three generations of Business Brokers.
She was a natural for the industry. Her background was in owning and operating her own businesses. When she was in her twenties and thirties, she managed, owned, and operated Arthur Murray Dance Studios in Illinois and Indiana. The last one she owned was in Danville, Illinois.
In 1977, she began a new career in Business Brokerage with a nationwide Business Brokerage Company. She eventually purchased a business brokerage firm in Tucson, AZ with her daughter in 1982. She retired in 1992 in order to care for her mother.
Sheryl Reese, 2nd Generation Business Broker

Sheryl Reese, 2nd Generation Business Broker

Lucky for me, I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs. My mother owned/operated Arthur Murray Studios in Illinois and Indiana prior to embarking on a career as a Business Broker, resulting in the 1st generation of Desert Business Brokers. My aunt owned/operated a downtown diner; even my Grandfather and Great-Grandfather owned/operated their own coal mine in Illinois!
With my family history and experience owning/operating businesses, I am sensitive to a Buyer’s needs when searching for a business and a Seller’s concerns when they are selling their business. I started in the Business Brokerage industry in 1978, making me a 2nd generation Business Broker following in my mother's footsteps. I don’t “specialize” in any specific type of business. Rather, my goal for all Buyers and Sellers is to find the right “fit” for them. Buying or selling a business is not only a great deal of work, but it is usually an emotional experience. My job is to do the "heavy lifting" for my buyers and sellers. If I can be of service to you, please call me today for a confidential interview.
Valori Mejia,  3rd Generation Business Broker

Valori Mejia, 3rd Generation Business Broker

I’m a third generation business broker. Being raised in the business brokerage world since I was 4 years old, it is second nature to me.  In 1992, straight out of Shadow Mountain High School, I studied hard to get my real estate license. That year, I became the youngest business broker in the state of Arizona. Over the years, I have won many awards and have become very successful, following in the footsteps of my grandmother and mother.  In 1999, I decided to buy my first business.  Ten years later, I run it as an absentee owner. Now, I’m back full time in the world of selling businesses.
If you are already a successful business owner and want another challenge, let me help you find the perfect fit. On the other hand, if you’re seeking freedom from a 9-5 job and you want to be your own boss, we have a large variety of businesses ready to be sold.  Are you seeking a change or the freedom of retirement?  Let me help you sell your business. Either way, let us work together to achieve your goals. I look forward to working with you and helping you become a success.
