Dennis Hansmann is an Illinois Licensed Business Broker and also an Illinois Real Estate Broker.
Dennis Hansmann has been an entrepreneur his entire life. He understands the challenges of starting a business first hand and certainly appreciates the great benefits that present themselves in buying an existing business. Even more importantly, Dennis understands the great privilege it is for individuals to own their own company and the great responsibility that goes along with it. After all, the vast majority of people who earn an honest living do not have the luxury of working for themselves in their own business. Dennis on the other hand, has mostly worked within his own business entities and in doing so has developed an ability to understand the specific needs of each client that has a business for sale or is buying a business. His strong entrepreneurial spirit has evolved over almost four decades, starting well before he was even ten years of age. Even as a youngster, Dennis understood that a successful business must consist of mutually beneficial relationships that are more about the people we help than they are about the ladders of success in which each of us climbs.
From the beginning, Dennis focused on selling intangible services and he always defined success based on bringing quality “results oriented” service to his wide ranging customer base. In his preteen years, he excelled by devoting his time/energy to achieving success by building birdhouses for neighbors. Then, during junior high school, he excelled at selling magazine subscriptions to raise money for school projects. During this same period, Dennis became well known in the neighborhood where he grew up as he was the neighborhood “go-to guy” for lawn care services, shoveling snow, cleaning out garages or attics, organizing basements and providing baby sitting services. So, before the age 15, Dennis had already achieved relative success, but more importantly achieved an understanding of building relationships within the community that surrounded him.
Starting in the early 1990’s, Dennis began in earnest to build several companies that would provide services in such a way that would clearly differentiate him from his competition. Dennis proceeded to build his own rep firm, his own ad agency, a media solutions network, a consulting firm and a home monitoring business. Dennis got the attention of several major publishing companies and entered into several consecutive annual contracts to represent various marketing/advertising platforms. Companies like Thomas Register of American Manufacturers in Manhattan and New Orient Media both worked closely with Dennis for several years to implement various advertising and marketing programs for major corporations all over the country. As a result, Dennis was awarded multiple awards in the highest achievement category and all while also running other firms of his own where he focused on listening closely to his clients and delivering much more than they expected.
Dennis formed a “Main Street to Mid-Level” business brokerage that he named American Business Acquisitions. In his mind, the need for a results oriented business brokerage of this kind was obvious and especially after Dennis attempted himself to purchase a couple businesses in the Chicago area as well as around the country. Today, Dennis works very closely to ensure successful results are the only option for his clients. American Business Acquisitions gets results based on that same quality “results oriented” strategy that started so long ago.
