Our Story

The Transition Company prides itself on not being just another brokerage firm solely focused on business transactions, but rather as a facilitator of lifestyle transitions. We are here for business owners who are starting to think about “What’s Next?…”



"I can honestly say that without Bill Evans' unwavering commitment, it's doubtful that we would have had such great success. If you're even considering the sale of your company, I highly recommend contacting Bill to discuss your options."

Karen Griggs Former Owner, Jadian Enterprises

"I had the pleasure of working with Bill Evans from the buy side on a recent acquisition. I appreciated his responsiveness and attention to detail from the letter of intent, to close.  Bill's professionalism and commitment to his client and the process was evident throughout a lengthy transaction. Based on this experience, whether buying or selling, I would recommend  Bill Evans.”

Mark S. Allen Owner, Allen Partners LLC

"From our first meeting with Bill we knew it was a good match. Bill has represented our business and us in a professional, confident and guiding manner - while still being respectful of our thoughts and wishes. Highly recommended!"
