Local Agents Phil Zanardi + Daz Connell

Phil Zanardi is a Business Broker for Murphy Business Sales, but many locals in Hoboken and Jersey City know Phil as the friendly face and voice at Dr. Park Avenue, a premier medispa in Hoboken and Franklin Lakes. What you probably didn’t know is that he also helps business owners sell company’s that they’ve built by connecting them with buyers who would be the perfect fit.  “I got into this field when I met Daz Connell, a senior Broker from Murphy Business Sales and the territory owner of Bergen County. We worked on a medical spa sale together where he was the broker and I was a consultant, and afterward he offered to train me to become a business broker. Since 2017, I have worked under his tutelage and I now cover the Hudson County, Bergen and NYC region under Daz,” Phil told Hoboken Girl about how he got his start in the industry.

He continued, “I love being in a different business space everyday and learning about a new company. Learning what made [a] company unique and the strategies they put into place is always so interesting to hear. One day we can be in a hair salon, the next day a diner. You get to hear all different stories from all walks of life, so it’s pretty cool.”

Many of the business owners that Phil and Daz work with are retiring, so the sale of their business will help set them up for years to come. “When the sale goes through it’s pretty cool to know you helped them close the chapter on a huge part of their life, as they start a new chapter,” Daz told us.

Phil and Daz make a good team because they relate well to their clients since they both are entrepreneurs themselves. Phil owns a medical spa and a media startup while Daz owns an ice cream franchise and has also owned a marketing agency that he built, operated, and eventually sold. “We both know and understand what it takes to buy a business, build a business, and sell a business. So when it is time for business owners to sell, we do our best to find them the best candidate to make the purchase.”

Working with Murphy Business Sales

The standards to become a member of the Murphy team are high, which is why the team remains small and tight-knit. All brokers must be former business owners or have held senior executive positions. Plus, most are highly credentialed professionals who hold certifications in business appraisal, machinery and equipment appraisal, consulting and business analysis, mergers and acquisitions, and exit planning. Brokers are well-versed in putting together plans on how to maximize value at the time of sale. It also allows them to uncover hidden opportunity areas that a buyer may be able to capitalize on. 

 

Murphy provides the highest level of training and support in the industry. With over 150 offices throughout North America, many brokers have been involved in virtually every kind of business and love being able to utilize their skills. 

Murphy Business Sales has a huge presence in North America — covering the United States and Canada — making this network the biggest among business broker firms. Phil and Daz personally work with business buyers and sellers in Bergen County, Hudson County, and New York City. 

The Process of Buying or Selling

People looking to purchase a business work with Murphy Business Sales to help them find a company that’s a good fit for their needs and budget. Agents help educate buyers about the current market and provide advice during the due diligence process. For those who are looking to sell, your agent will put together a presentation on the business that includes company history, financial statements, pictures, and anything else that is pertinent to your particular business. This presentation will only be released to potential buyers once they’ve signed a Confidentiality Agreement. Then your agent will advertise your company and utilize the large network of brokers across the United States to achieve maximum exposure.
