Broker Biography

Peter Garrod (828) 772-8447


In 2006 Peter Garrod became a Business Broker, prior to which he was a Business Consultant to foreign investors wanting to own and manage businesses within the US. The success of his business brokering has been built on his professionalism, dedication, business ownership knowledge and experience, a clear understanding of business financials and the belief that honesty, mutual trust, confidence and motivation creates a relationship between parties that will progress to a successful conclusion. He offers a truly unique service to both seller's and buyer's; offering sellers confidentiality and sound advice on positioning their business for sale to achieve top market value with invaluable guidance throughout the selling process; and offering buyers outstanding purchasing advice, guidance throughout the buying process, and direction for a successful transition at closing.

Peter moved to the USA from the UK in 1992. His successful businesses in the United Kingdom included farming, contracting and conservation companies, after which he spent 24 years in Florida owning an Auto Repair business, a Uhaul Dealership, a Gas Station and Commercial Cleaning Company, before moving to the Asheville area of North Carolina.

Peter has always loved sport and spent 18 years playing rugby, then owning, building and driving a late model stock car in Florida. Having both been raised in the English Countryside, Peter and his wife Jane, fell in love with Asheville and the North Carolina Mountains several years ago and have made it their home for the long term future.
