Our Team of Affiliated Professionals
QUALITY, INTEGRITY, EXCELLENCE
The first step in selling a business is determining its value. Our team of expert certified business appraisers will then work closely with our business broker and mergers and acquisitions partners to assemble a comprehensive marketing plan to make the transition from business ownership as painless and profitable as possible. All our team members have owned their own businesses and therefore have been through the process themselves. We know firsthand what it is all about and therefore can provide you with the best business valuation service available.

Joanie received her bachelor's degree in business from San Jose State University. She spent many years in various office management capacities working for attorneys, CPAs, and venture capital companies. At one point in time she was the personal assistant and office manager for the CEO of American Express. Along the way, she has performed accounting and control duties for a number of large and small privately-held companies. Absolutely no document leaves the office of Affordable Business Valuations without her stamp of approval.
It would be a major lapse if we didn't mention that she also raised four beautiful children while she co-managed the $5 million lumberyard with her husband Fred.

We caught Kimberly here before she put her makeup on. But seriously, she graduated cum laude from San Diego State University with a bachelor's degree in business in 3-1/2 years! No small feat. When she is not working as a budget analyst for the US Army National Guard for the State of California, she also does research for the many valuations the company prepares.
Andrew Rogerson is a Certified Mergers and Acquisition Professional (CM&AP) and Mergers & Acquisition Master Intermediary (M&AMI) from the M&A Source; their two highest designations. He’s also a Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) with the International Business Brokers Association and a Certified Business Broker (CBB) with the California Association of Business Brokers. This means he helps entrepreneurs sell a business or sell a medical practice with a value over $1,000,000, value a business, buy a business or buy a franchise.
Andrew is an entrepreneur at heart as its part of his DNA. Originally from Australia, Andrew’s grandfather was able to provide the initial finance for two of his children or Andrew’s uncles to establish the Kenworth truck franchise in Australia in the 1950’s. The rest as they say is history as the Kenworth franchise was so successful, Kenworth bought it back. This entrepreneur spirit was passed to Andrew as he is a 5-time business owner having owned two businesses in Australia and now three in California and enjoys helping entrepreneurs exit or enter business ownership.
His services include business brokerage; helping owners sell and/or buyers purchase a business including medical practice. He also provides consulting on purchasing a franchise, certified machinery and equipment appraisals and business valuations.
To ensure this is done to the highest standards, Andrew carries the CBI designation from the IBBA and M&A Source, the Certified Mergers and Acquisition Professional (CM&AP) and Mergers & Acquisition Master Intermediary (M&AMI) from the M&A Source and the Certified Business Broker (CBB) from the California Association of Business Brokers. Appraisals for Machinery & Equipment are certified with the CMEA designation from the NEBB Institute. Andrew carries a Broker’s License from the CA Department of Real Estate, has a Certificate of Taxation, and the past Sacramento Chair of the California Association of Business Brokers. Andrew is also available for speaking engagements. How can I help you?
