Barry G. Evans Background

Business Philosophy

As the founder and co-founder of So-Cal Business Brokers we are ‘hands on’ with the handling of every transaction. While we have a small administrative support staff and occasionally use outside consultants, being ‘hands on’ from inception to a closed transaction is not only appreciated by clients but it gives us the peace of mind of knowing with certainty that things are being done correctly and on time with the client’s best interests as our sole focus.

TYLER B. EVANS Background

Business Philosophy

While I have not personally owned and managed a business I have grown up in a family that has owned several businesses and over the years I have had the opportunity to work with and spend time with the partners and managers who have run those businesses.  Most recently that has involved four different family businesses with aggregate revenues over $40 million.  While not ‘hands on‘ I have learned a great deal about business in conjunction with my college education, and I thoroughly enjoy the process of valuing and selling businesses.
