The Growing Business Brokerage Industry

If you’re looking for an energizing industry with growth potential and flexibility, becoming a business broker with the Sunbelt Network could be just the opportunity you’re looking for! Not only is working with business owners to reach their goals rewarding, but it’s also lucrative.

What is a Business Broker?

Business brokers help people buy and sell privately held businesses. Working predominately on behalf of sellers, you will help them prepare the business for sale, market it, solicit and screen buyers, assist with the due diligence process, advise on financing sources, and work to ensure an overall smooth and expedited closing for the parties. For your efforts, you typically receive success fees based upon the final sales price, thus tying your best interests with those of your seller/client. The success fee potential is even greater on Middle Market deals.

We sell more businesses than any other business broker firm. That’s why seller clients choose to work with Sunbelt, and why potential franchise owners ultimately choose Sunbelt too.
