Meet The Team – Sabrina Miller – Managing Director Southern PA/Northern MD/DE

By Achim Neumann

  1. Where did you grow up? The first part of my childhood I lived in Ellicott City, Maryland. Once my mother’s need to have horses became too great, we moved to the more rural side of Maryland, Carroll County.
  2. Where did you study for college?  My college journey began at my local community college immediately after high school where I earned my associate degree. I later went back to earn my bachelor’s from Stevenson University. I graduated Manga Cum Ladue with a bachelor’s in business communications.
  3. What was the first job you had out of college? What was the most important lesson you learned there that has stuck with you for your entire professional career? The first job I had after receiving my associate degree was working at a hospital in Baltimore City as a medical administrative assistant. I worked in that position for over 6 years, and it was very eye opening to a young adult who thinks she has the world figured out. The most important lesson I learned during my time there was never stop growing and learning.
  4. What drew you to working with A Neumann and Associates?  I have a passion for helping business owners set and meet goals. After interviewing with Achim and the Neumann team, I found they also have a passion for helping business owners. Sharing a similar mindset, I knew this was a company I wanted to work for.
  5. What counties and states do you represent?  In Maryland the counties I represent are Baltimore, Frederick, Harford, Howard, Carroll, Cecil, Washington, Kent and Queen Anne’s. In Pennsylvania, I represent Chester, Delaware, York, Cumberland and Adams counties. In Delaware I represent New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties.
  6. What do you feel makes your region unique compared to others? (tax benefits, special laws, etc.)?  My territory is unique because it has both big cities and rural areas. It is beautiful to drive from the beach to farms and then through the mountains. Due to the uniqueness of the region, the business are also just as unique and diverse.  
  7. What do you find is the biggest challenge in your region compared to others? I don’t believe my region has any bigger challenge than any other. The greatest part about working for A. Neumann and Associates is that any challenge I might face, I know I have a great team that has my back ready to help.
  8. What do you find is the biggest advantage working in your region compared to others? Having grown up in Maryland and often visiting surrounding areas, I have an intimate knowledge of many of the businesses in my region. I feel this gives me an advantage to better help my clients sell their business. In combination with A. Neumann’s vast network and expertise, and my network and knowledge of the companies, we make the ideal team to help business owners in my region.
  9. What do you think is the most underrated opportunity in your region? Having a professional, independent valuation from a certified firm is one of the most underrated aspects of our business.  Most people only consider getting a valuation when they are looking to sell, however, a valuation can be a useful tool when planning your exit strategy even if it is many years out.  They can also help in assessing your company’s performance, optimizing debt or in estate planning.  A Neumann and Associates will help you prepare for your independent valuation and then will thoroughly review the results with you when completed. 
  10. What is the most rewarding experience you’ve had working in your region? The most rewarding experience is working with business owners who are looking to retire and sell their businesses. These are people who have spent many years building their business and it is a bittersweet time for them. It is rewarding to help them through the process, get a fair price for their business, and watch them retire happy.
  11. Best advice for someone considering selling a business in your region Do your research and make sure you pick the right team to guide you through the process which will be one of the most important transactions of your life. As tempting as it may be to attempt to sell on your own, seek professional guidance.  There are so many aspects of the process that that need to be properly managed.  Having the right team in your corner will pay for itself many times over.  I am proud to say that A Neumann and Associates is that team.
  12. Best advice for someone considering buying a business in your region When buying a business, you will want to work with an organization that has the network and focus to bring you the opportunities that are right for you.  A Neumann and Associates is structured to do just that.

Client Testimonials

“Working with Marc and his company was a pleasure. What I thought was going to be a just another one of those pushy sales companies was just the opposite. Polite, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to talk to and deal with. Marc handled most of the interaction and he has one of the greatest demeanors. Again, it was a pleasure working with him and his firm.”

Douglas DiCeglio

“I recently completed an acquisition using A Neumann & Associates. Tony Valentino was very helpful and accessible during the entire process. They do a thorough job vetting both parties and got us to the finish line.”

Srini Mudambi

“Claus out of Florida helped us with the sale of our business. We had never done anything like this and him and his team walked us through the process from start to finish. We had some challenges through the process and Claus continued to show up even in the difficult conversations.”

Colby Harris, Co-Owner, Del Mar Designs

“Claus Madsen thoroughly helped us with selling our company. From the 1st introductory meeting explaining to us what was possible, to providing us with resources to assist with the sale. Claus was invaluable throughout the whole sales process. Claus was with us every step of the journey and always made himself available for any questions or issues that came up along the way. If you are interested in selling your business, I encourage you to reach out to Claus and the ANA team so that they can let you know what’s achievable. These guys will make it happen!”

Ron Harris, Co-Owner and Vice President, Del Mar Designs

“A Neumann & Associates is the only business broker I would use or consult with. They have assisted with 3 business sales over the past 15 years with me. They are honest and sincere and have always performed better than my expectations. They are the only one i would use for the sales of my businesses.”

James Belanger, Business Owner

“I wanted to take a second to commend the exemplary customer service from both you [Karin Neumann] and Mr. Valentino. It’s both a rarity in the industry, and very much appreciated.”

Andrew G., Investor

“We worked with Neumann & Associates to investigate the purchase of a research company in 2010 and found Achim to be capable, forthright and realistic. His depth of experience enabled us to fully understand our options, offering creative options that might enable the acquisition. While we didn’t acquire that particular company at that time, we know exactly who to call whenever we’re looking to buy or sell a business.”

Daniel Coates, Buyer

“Purchasing a business through this firm was a pleasure. Gary was very professional and transparent throughout the entire process. I look forward to working with A Neumann & Associates in the future.”

William Klemens, Buyer

“I utilized A. Neumann & Associates to assist in an M&A process. They are VERY thorough in using their time-tested process to calculate the value of investment opportunities, a process which provided a very detailed explanation for the value of the potential opportunity. Additionally, they also went above and beyond to extend other services including connecting with others who specialize in your industry and can assist with necessary steps including legal and accounting. Highly recommended!”

Edward Lane , Business Owner

“I recently contacted A. Neumann and Associates about getting a valuation of my business done. I spoke with Achim, who explained the process in detail. He had his colleague Gary come to my office in order to get a clear understanding of my business, and what I was hoping to accomplish. His patience in answering all my questions and his knowledge of the proper way to market my business gave me great confidence that this is the firm I will be using when the time comes for me to sell my business for max value. They gave me great insight into the steps I need to take now to get the best deal in the future. I highly recommend this firm to anybody who wants to sell now or down the road. They not only know their stuff, their actually just real nice guys.”
