Mr. Anthony Latessa has been a licensed Real Estate Agent since 1985, and a Business Broker since 1990. Tony started Latessa Business Sales in 1993 in Frankston, specialising in the sale of businesses throughout Victoria and some national sales.
35 years hence, Tony has sold approximately 1,100 businesses, and the brand established Latessa Business Sales as a household brand, not only on the Mornington Peninsula, Melbourne, but Australia wide. The scope of selling businesses for Latessa Business Sales varies across all industry types from retail to services, manufacturing, industrial and construction, home based and shop front, with small, medium and large businesses.
Tony held the helm as Victoria Chair of the Australian Institute of Business Broker for over 2 years and is now the National Chairperson. He also plays an integral part with the Business Broking Chapter of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria and has sat on the committee for over 17 years.
The key to the success of Latessa Business Sales is the hands-on personal approach Tony brings to every sale. Tony never sells a business without first understanding intimately the details of the business he is selling, studying it from every perspective, whether as a vendor, a purchaser or an investor. Apart from the empathy Tony infuses with every sale and purchase and going that “extra step” Tony can tap into his invaluable and extensive experience and knowledge in business to offer unparalleled services to both vendors and purchasers.
In addition, Tony has more than 20 years assisting immigrants settling, investing, buying and establishing businesses in Australia. Tony boasts an impressive network of International purchasers and investors. Importantly, Tony has full knowledge of the local and regulatory requirements, as well as the practical challenges, facing a new immigrant settling a business in a new territory.
What sets Latessa Business Sales apart, aside from its history, is that while we acknowledge that the introduction and extraordinary speed of growth of the internet as a marketing tool has opened markets previously untapped, Latessa Business Sales does not solely rely on this as a source of buyers. But in addition, Tony also ventures regularly into Asian countries along with an associate Immigration Agent and holds seminars for those clients looking to migrate to Australia via a business Visa. This has opened an international marketplace of buyers who are actively searching for a business to purchase.
Latessa Business Sales has a strong focus on Integrity and Transparency and our aim is to have both parties (Vendors and Purchasers) satisfied and willing to recommend our services.
