About the Company

I specialize in Auto Repair Shops. I've attempted contact with pretty much every shop owner in the Austin, San Antonio, and Houston markets. I know the shop owners that are actively for sale. I know the shop owners that are for sale but not advertised. I know the shop owners that want to sell next year or the year after that. I know the shop owners that want to sell only their business and the ones that want to sell the real estate with the business as a package. I know the really good deals and the not so good deals.

I maintain a database of buyers that includes every person that has responded to every auto repair shop I've worked on. So that's a pretty good sized list of contacts. So whether you're buying or selling, give me a call, I might already know the guy that would be a good fit for you.

Broker Biography

Bryan Baese (830) 302-7973


My name is Bryan Baese and I'm the lead broker and principal at Salt Mine Business Services. I've been brokering the sale of small businesses since 1998. Before I went out on my own I worked for several large corporations; usually in the acquisitions department. I was moderately successful but never satisfied (translation...sitting at a desk really bites) so I went into sales.

I’ve sold tangible items, intangible items, things that are expensive and things that are cheap. I‘ve sold over the phone and I’ve sold face to face. I’ve sold door to door and off the showroom floor. I’ve sold cars, insurance, household items, technical products, high risk investments, trailers out on the highway, and everything in between. But nothing compares to selling a business.

My first novel came out in 2015. It's called Gohorse and it's available on Amazon. Go to Amazon and type in my name and the book will pop up. It's only $10! Or buy a business from me. I give them away for free at my closings.

Services Provided

I'm starting to figure this out. I only do auto repair and that really helps. I have attorneys that will represent the transaction. This saves a lot of money and aggravation. If buyer and seller both want to hire an attorney so they can argue with each other at a combined $700 per hour...then have at it. But I can tell you that a single attorney is the way to go. I also have lenders, appraisers, and environmental guys that can give a good third party opinion. If you're buying or selling an auto repair business or might want to give me a call.
