WHAT IS A BUSINESS BROKER?

Selling and buying a business is complicated.

If you don’t have a guide, you’re apt to get lost. Think of a Business Broker as a tour guide, navigating buyers and sellers through a complicated landscape with numerous pitfalls.

A Business Broker is a certified real estate expert who specializes in selling existing businesses and franchises.

Together, the brokers at Business Finders Canada have more than 200 years of experience in the industry.

We’ve seen more and more people turning to a business broker for expert advice on all kinds of issues, including properly valuing their business and getting a business ready to go on the market.

When it comes down to it, buying a business is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. It will have a long-term impact on lifestyle and finances.

For sellers who have poured their life into the business, selling can be a delicate matter that can have an impact on employees, creditors and suppliers.

Confidentiality is key in protecting company assets, credit and marketability.

Business Finders Canada provides confidential services to business owners and business buyers. In fact, we keep a directory of pre-qualified buyers who are actively looking and have signed a confidentiality agreement.

A Business Broker can help with every aspect of sale, from pricing your business to marketing to the right buyer.

A Business Broker is an intermediary between a seller and buyer who desire to sell or buy business.

Our brokers also have in inside track into listings you couldn’t discover on your own.

They act as matchmaker, bringing sellers and buyers together, then closing deals efficiently and to the satisfaction of both buyers and sellers.

When selling your business, your focus should stay on keeping it running smoothly. You can feel confident leaving the marketing and negotiating to an experienced business broker.
