After 43 years of working long and hard, I’m now enjoying doing absolutely nothing—thanks to Karl at Transworld Business Advisors! For the last 24 years, I’ve had my own yacht and houseboat washing and waxing business on Lake Lanier. I knew it had value, with more than 100 regular customers, two vans and a collection of custom-made cleaning equipment. However, I didn’t know how to go about selling it. Karl is very personable and knowledgeable. He clearly explained the process to determine the price and found a buyer who paid what we asked—during a pandemic. I’ve been recommending Karl to my friends who are ready to sell their businesses and retire. It was much easier than I expected.

Karl and Anne at Transworld are great professionals and excellent exiting planner. They add lots of value to proactive business owners that are looking to position their businesses for future disposition. They take a holistic approach, and not just help sell the client’s business but more importantly also provide advice on areas that drive and maximize the underlying value of the business and do so from a future buyer’s perspective. I recommend 100%.

Karl and Ann were instrumental in helping me sell my business. They were respectful of my intentions and found not only one but two qualified buyers. They kept me in the loop as requested with weekly updates even if there wasn't anything to report. Their patience in this transaction ultimately allowed me to close a chapter and leave my business in good hands. I would definitely recommend their services for anyone looking for knowledgable and very capable negotiators when it comes to closing the deal.

Karl and Ann were both a joy to work with in the acquisition of a business. I had the pleasure of closing two deals in one day (one with Transworld and one with another marketplace broker). The level of customer service and support from Karl and Ann far surpassed that of the other broker. 10/10. Highly recommend.

We are delighted that when the time came to sell our business we connected with Karl and Ann Barham. Between their knowledge and the vast resources of Transworld we were taken care of at every step of the way. They were always accessible, talked us off the ledge a couple of times, kept things on track by minding all of the details, and ultimately brought us successfully to the finish line with the sale of our business. We were under contract in a few weeks and closed a few weeks after that. Excellent work by Karl and Ann and you'll be equally glad you chose them to help with your own business sale.

Karl represented the sellers yet he made it feel like he was representing me throughout the entire purchase process. I found Karl to be easy to speak to, easy to access, and very responsive during due diligence with additional document requests. All in all, I feel Transworld is a top business brokerage firm and one of the easiest to do deals with both as a buyer as a seller. Thanks Karl for the hard work and professionalism.

As one of my business mentors, Karl Barham, President of Transworld Business Advisors of Atlanta Peachtree, supported me through the launch and growth of my consulting business (targeted helping small businesses grow and improve their performance) over the past several years. His general business acumen and deep experience in Sales and Marketing helped me identify and secure new clients. I'm excited to see Karl apply his skillset to help small business owners, present and future, achieve their goals through the sale and/or purchase of a business.


Transworld Business Advisors help you take the first step in selling your business. At no cost to you, our business valuators will help you learn the market value of your business and give you a company valuation. We will use a multitude of valuation methods to help determine at what price to sell your business.


There is a great deal of variation in the time frame, but, if we had to pick an average time, eight to nine months may be close. While this may sound like a long time, all of the facets of selling a company, including listing the business, finding buyers, interviewing buyers, writing contracts, due diligence and finally the closing process are all time consuming.

Transworld has no upfront fees. We will analyze your company and go through the entire process with no cost to you. Your only obligation is when we find a buyer for your business. We traditionally receive our payment at closing.

The analysis of your business’ value or worth is another crucial function of the business intermediary. “The Market” makes the final determination of value. At Transworld, we have tremendous experience in valuing almost any business. Our estimates of value are not “certified business valuations” although we can provide this service for a fee. However, our experience and volume of comparable businesses allows us to give the business owner a very good estimate of value.

The lack of good business records is the single most common reason for a business sales deal to fall apart. We can’t emphasize enough the importance of maintaining good books and records before selling. This includes accurate financial statements, cash register receipts or whatever records are necessary to prove income and expenses. Of course, current tax returns are a must. However, we are used to selling businesses that may have less than adequate records.

Buying or selling a company can be a complicated venture. While some companies are sold without the help of accountants and attorneys, we strongly recommend that both the buyer and seller engage professionals.


Transworld Business Advisors is the world leader in the marketing and sales of businesses, franchises and commercial real estate. Whether you represent an acquisition-minded corporation, or are personally interested in owning your own company, Transworld offers the professional services that successfully bring buyers and sellers together.
