What you hear of less often are the transactions in between — like when a business is sold to a new owner — even though business sales are quite common.
We took a look through the Reston listings of a business broker marketplace to see what a consumer looking to run a small business could pick up here in Reston.
Often the business is not named, but there are details that provide clues as to which business it may be. (Also, because of the nature of an online platform like this, we can’t be 100 percent sure that all listings are up to date.)
Here are just some of the businesses that are currently listed on the site. We are only naming the business if a name or website is provided in the listing.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
