What Does a Business Brokerage Firm Do?

Business Brokers specialize in advising and providing professional guidance through the process of purchasing and selling businesses. By performing business valuations, conducting qualifier interviews with potential buyers, and knowledgeably marketing businesses for sale, Business Brokers act as an assistant and coordinator to the seller or buyer. At Sunbelt Business Advisors, Greater Bay Area, our focus is on helping you sell your business at your preferred price and on your desired terms.

The Work of a Business Brokerage Firm

Brokers participate in a crucial role throughout the business selling process. Through advice and guidance, they offer time-tested and modernly fresh practices to help sellers achieve their goal of finding the right buyer at the right price, alongside other services that help facilitate a successful transaction. These individuals often have years of training behind them in addition to experience in the area of selling and purchasing small to medium sized businesses in several types of industries. As a result, they can provide exceptional guidance in various aspects of the marketing and selling process, saving you valuable time and money.

Business Brokers can develop a marketing package for sellers and help identify the right price for the business. As industry professionals, our brokers take on the complex legal and financial details involved in the buying and selling process. They are also able to provide advice and help prepare the business for sale in advance of it going on the market.

In addition to the direction and supervision our Business Brokers provide, they also offer connections to other industry professionals you may need, such as accountants, marketing experts, financial advisors, escrow offices, and legal counsel that specialize in aid in the buying and selling process. Brokers can also help buyers come in contact with sellers who have business opportunities that match their financial objectives, passions, and skill sets.

Most of the time, brokers work on commission basis that is usually paid by the seller at the close of escrow.
