Our Philosophy - Personalized Attention in a Commoditized World

Customized Approach

No two portfolios are the same and Garnet does not believe a cookie-cutter process is in anyone’s best interests. 

Garnet develops a custom process for each transaction.

This helps buyers and sellers understand the specifics of the current transaction and has led to our nearly perfect closing record.

Partner Attention

A partner-level executive is assigned to every transaction.

Sellers get the benefit of decades of experience and buyers get accurate information and the confidence that the deal will close.

Garnet sales are conducted with the highest levels of care and integrity.
