Rapt is a professional business brokerage firm concentrating on the confidential sale, acquisition, and valuation of small to mid-sized business concerns. The firm can also help arrange commercial finance and provide consulting services to business owners to improve their net return, or to improve their business as part of an exit strategy.
The company was formed in 1998 by Angelo A. Ferrara and originally concentrated on arranging commercial loans and providing business consulting services. Subsequently, the company transitioned into business transactions and now focuses primarily on the sale of small to mid-sized business concerns.
Intensity, Focus & Commitment!
When people ask why we close the name Rapt we tell them that it personifies our motto. We are intense and provide personal attention to each of our engagements. We focus on your interests and work to achieve the best outcome for you. Our engagements are not “just business” to us, they’re personal and we make a total commitment to assure the best outcome for you.
Rapt appreciates that no one knows your business as well as the owner and we won’t insult you by making promises that can’t be kept, but we will provide you with honest, competent, and experienced counsel. We have a proven track record to work diligently to sell our client’s business in the shortest amount of time and at the very best price the marketplace can deliver.
Since Rapt is still intimately involved in commercial finance, we bring a unique talent to the process of selling your business. We can realistically value the deal from a lenders viewpoint to help you determine the proper selling price and to arrange financing for the buyer. We have completely funded many deals, with the seller providing little, if any financing!
As business consultants we have negotiated buy-sell agreements, helped business owners to operate more effectively, and improved the company’s bottom line.
It’s Just Business
To us your business is our business…… and our business is personal to us…… it’s not just business.
While we’ve all had people say to us “it’s just business, don’t take it personal,” we are prideful professionals and cannot; business is personal to us. We will be your advocates and always provide advice we believe is in your best interest even at our expense .
