Broker Biography

Randall Forster (812) 449-3424

Introduction

Forster began his business brokerage and M&A career in 1998 when he launched R.O. Forster & Associates, now Marathon Mergers & Acquisitions, a firm that continues to thrive in today's environment. Commercial real estate and business brokerage go hand-in-hand; however, an important consideration in business brokerage is how to market something that you do not want anyone to know about. Forster will provide the confidentiality required to sell your business without jeopardizing your business in the process. Forster’s expertise lies in the small to mid-market size businesses ($200,000 to $20MM). He is an advisor to business owners regarding preparing their business for future sale, valuations for partnership transfers, and business planning purposes. Randall can also be a valued advisor for your next business acquisition.

Forster takes the title of “Advisor” seriously. With over 100 years of combined commercial real estate experience within the Martin Group office, they are the team you want working for you. As a “Top Ten” commercial real estate company, the Sperry Van Ness brand provides additional access to extensive market data, experts in every sector and segment of the market. The Sperry Van Ness/Martin Group promises to put our clients’ interests first. They do so by immediately marketing your property to the entire brokerage and investment community (nearly 100,000), and they promise to split commissions 50/50 with other brokers.

Forster’s completed transactions include an assisted living facility that sold at full asking price and closed within 45 days of listing. He was also hired by a competing broker to sell a challenging student housing complex which the owner (a commercial broker) had tried to sell for 2 years. Randall sold the property to a group HQ’ed in New York at near full price. In the mergers & acquisitions arena, Forster brokered the sale of a medical testing lab to a large medical services provider. This acquisition gave the new owner immediate and seamless entry into a business segment that they had been considering for some time. Other medical related M&A transactions include a medical supplies & equipment distributor, an in-home elder care business, and a 58-unit assisted living facility ($5MM).
