WAV Group held a well-attended webinar last week on how to acquire real estate firms and creating a successful M&A Strategy. The panelists included: Larry Rideout, Chairman of Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty, Victor Lund, Founding Partner, WAV Group, and George Slusser who leads our M&A Advisory Division.

We shared ideas and helpful tips on all areas of the acquisition process. We focused on the 4 C’s critical to any potential acquisition: Culture, Competency, Cost, and Commitment.

Victor stressed the importance of evaluating the platform of the candidate as well as your own. He offered a few of the pitfalls to avoid, along with advice on reviewing agreements and choosing best in class services.

Larry was a wealth of practical knowledge offering his insights based on his firm’s significant growth through M&A. He explained his strategy, his process, and some areas to both concentrate on and avoid.

The importance of cultural compatibility was stressed throughout the session.
