Introduction

Jim Evavold has over 25 years experience in Business Ownership and Business Brokerage. He has owned and operated a number of small businesses here in the Twin Cities prior to becoming a Business Broker with Opportunities in Business.

The breadth of his experience has served Jim well as a Broker; he has participated in the sale and purchase of a wide variety of businesses from various industries including manufacturing, wholesale/distribution, retail, food & beverage, technology, service businesses and franchises. Jim attributes his success to his extensive experience in sales and marketing, the ability to analyze financial statements and his awareness of how important confidentiality is when handling sensitive and confidential information. Sellers and Buyers have told Jim they were very happy with his professional and confidential approach to handling all aspects of a business sale - negotiations, buyer qualification, document preparation and marketing strategies. A few of Jim's marketing strategies include creating a professional and confidential marketing package of the business; advertising locally and nationally on several websites and database marketing for potential strategic acquisitions.

Jim has worked with many banks in the Twin Cities including Wells Fargo, US Bank, Achor Bank, Associated, Stearns, Bremer and M&I. Jim will list businesses in the Twin Cities Metro area as well as greater Minnesota and Western Wisconsin.
