Our History

The Boise office of Murphy Business was born out of a desire to help small businesses navigate the challenging transfer process.  The founder had over twenty years of experience in large scale manufacturing operations, corporate acquisitions, commercial real estate, and accounting and had seen many businesses struggle when burdened with unplanned events forcing their hand and nowhere to turn for help. 

Murphy Business of Southwest Idaho opened in 2010, deep in the “Great Recession”, as a one-man franchise outpost of Murphy Business, a rapidly growing and deeply respected business brokerage firm based in Clearwater, Florida.  During subsequent years, as the economy recovered, Murphy Business has grown to be one of the largest business brokerage firms in North America, and the Boise office has grown to include additional outstanding agents and resources to support our clients and small business community.  We have forged close relationships with Murphy Franchisees in North Idaho and Southeast Idaho in order to provide the most comprehensive set of business transfer resources available in Idaho.(to be continued)

Our 7-Step Process



We’ll use the discovery step to assess the sellability of the business.  Sellability can be impacted by financial performance, scale, owner motivation, industry trends, business operations, and more.



The single most critical factor in a successful sale is a proper valuation.  We will review your financials, comparable sales, and other characteristics of your business to determine a market value range or, most probable selling price.


Marketing Plan

Development of a confidential marketing plan.  We will work with our client to develop a Confidential Information Memorandum (CIM) which contains a detailed presentation and is given to prospective acquirers after receiving a non-disclosure agreement.



Listing of confidential offering information on up to 15 business listing web portals plus leverage our local networks.  We require all buyers to provide a non-disclosure agreement, experience profile, and evidence of ability to close a transaction.



Negotiation of offers.  There are many ways a deal can typically be structured and we will work with all parties to find a structure that is a win-win.


Due Diligence

After receiving a Letter of Intent or Offer to Purchase, we enter due diligence review of financial information, business operations, etc.  We will provide extensive guidance during this time from organizing the virtual deal room and coordinating with accountants, attorneys, escrow officer, and other advisers.



Finally, the culmination of months of work, handing over of the keys and transfer of funds.  We will be there with you through the whole process helping get all parties through any bumps and turns.
