What is a Business Broker?
Perhaps one of the biggest benefits provided by Business Brokers is the ability to allow owners to stay focused on running their business during the sale process which take on average six to twelve months to complete.

Business brokers are committed to offering professional services in a knowledgeable, ethical and timely fashion. Typically, business brokers provide information and business advice to sellers and buyers, maintain communications between the parties and coordinate the negotiations and closing processes to complete desired transactions. They handle the initial potential buyer interviews, discussions, and negotiations with prospective buyers; facilitate the progress of the due diligence investigation and generally assist with the business sale.
