Profile: Here is a great opportunity for an experienced landscape architect looking to branch out on his/her own with a strong desire to own a well-established landscape architectural firm located in the San Francisco East Bay. The business was established in 1992 and benefits from long standing clients. Some accounts have been with the firm since inception. The business specializes in providing site planning, urban design and landscape architecture consultation for a variety of public and private clients.
This is a perfect opportunity for larger firms looking for growth via acquisition or licensed individuals looking to start their own business. The owner is motivated to sell this business to a qualified buyer since he will be relocating out of state and looking to retire. The owner can stay on for an extended period of time to ensure a smooth transition for the new owner.
