Paul Vartanian is an experienced business man who brings his real-world know-how to every client he works with. Paul has experienced the excitement and challenges of opening, operating, selling, and buying businesses personally, and he uses that understanding to connect deeply with every deal on both the buy and sale sides.
Having started his own business from scratch, Paul can empathize with sellers on the difficulty of parting with something that you’ve put so much time and effort into. He also knows firsthand how important it is to find the right buyer. Having been on the other side before, Paul takes extra care when responding to and connecting with both buyers and sellers. making a point of addressing all concerns as quickly as possible.
Getting to know and understand what sellers and buyers are looking for, Paul asks the right questions to fully understand the seller’s and buyer’s motives. At the same time, he works to manage expectations in relation to the realities of the marketplace. With good reason, most sellers really care about who is buying their business, they want to be sure that this is the right buyer and that they will be successful after acquiring the business so that all their hard work doesn’t go to waste.
To him, being a broker is about helping sellers achieve their goal of selling the business that they’ve worked so hard to build. Meanwhile, it’s also helping buyers achieve their goal of acquiring the right business, perhaps for the first time.
When away from the office, Paul enjoys exercising at his favorite gym, mountain biking, traveling, and reading.
What can I say! My experience with Website Closers & Alex as my broker has been more than amazing. Alex promised my store would sell and the guarantee was kept! On top of that, Alex kept me updated regularly about the process of my store, lets you know if you have any offer, any recommendations to add to your listening, and overall keeps you constantly updated on what’s going on, a lot better than other website brokers who disappear after weeks and leaves you in the dark. If you’re thinking of selling your business, then I can’t stress enough that Website Closers is the best place to go. I really appreciate all the hard work and dedication Alex put into everything he does, 10/10!

Grier from WebsiteClosers.com did a great job of facilitating our transaction from start to finish. He had a great feel for the key parts of the deal and made us feel very comfortable. His recommendation for a consultant for post-sale outsourcing was excellent. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again.

This is a review about my experience selling two internet companies with Website Closers in 2015. The companies sold for over 350,000 USD. Grier Holiday was my broker for these sales, and will continue to be in the future as I move forward. He and his team had both of my companies sold within 3 months….

Website Closers is a go-to brokerage for all things ecommerce consumer products. They have great deal flow and their brokers know the market and how to get deals done. I work most closely with Tom Howard. Tom is a pleasure to work with. He has a talent for facilitating transactions effectively. I strongly recommend Tom and Website Closers.

Tom was the utmost professional. The information he provided was very timely and complete. As the buyer of the website company, I felt our relationship was very consultative. He was candid, straightforward, provide full disclosure and was genuinely concerned for it being the “right deal” for both the buyer and seller.

As a business owner preparing for my exit, I could not have been more fortunate to have worked with Tom Howard as my business broker. What was most important to me, Tom delivered. He quickly understood our business structure, set and met a sale price commensurate with my expectations and corporate financials, and introduced appropriate buyers. Tom is a seasoned broker who is highly capable and determined to meet the many challenges of a business sale. The process was both structured and transparent. At each stage, Tom offered advice and a suite of contacts which resulted in access to skilled financial advisers, bankers, and qualified buyers. I would not hesitate to work with Tom on a future sale.

As a first time seller of a business, I had a ton of questions and challenges but I was lucky enough to connect up with Jeff Hanson of Website Closers, who was so much help and made the process as transparent and easy as possible.
We had multiple buyers lined up right away and thankfully, Jeff was there to lean on during my decision process of selecting the best buyer for my business.
Jeff always made time for me and walked me through each step along the way. I felt like I had a friend looking out for my best interests and helping me get through the process.
Thanks to Jeff Hanson and Website Closers!

Lassiter certainly earned his commission on this one! I had calls with a couple brokers before signing with Website Closers. I wanted to make sure I felt like I was working with someone that understood the business and could get the job done, but also someone that I wanted to work with on a friendly level. Lassiter hit the mark perfectly in all areas. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Website Closers again.

Jason and Ron, What an amazingly positive experience from start to finish. Having you boys in our corner made us feel secure and confident. You provided us with an unbelievable amount of priceless value through this entire process. We had private offers and were considering going direct. But you made us feel comfortable and safe. We wanted to have your expertise to help guide us through the process and take some of the stress and workload off our hands. You did exactly that and produced over and above your promises.
You boys are on the next level. We are forever grateful for sticking with us from the start!

I worked with Tom Howard on the acquisition of Gorilla Shipper in 2019. Tom was very timely and professional. In addition he was able to bring independent advisors into the due diligence process that helped make the decision making process very simple. I would not only use his services again but would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get into the e-commerce space.
