After nearly 24 years, I certainly recognize that selecting a broker to guide you through the business sale process is an undertaking to say the least. However, I believe that we have the greatest composition of qualified brokers who have real personal experience buying and selling businesses to represent you. If you can find better, I would go with them too.

This past month we lost my good buddy and colleague Gary Stehle to Realogy. Although we probably will miss him a little bit professionally, we will miss him terribly personally. It is a really big win for Realogy and at the moment, an opening at IBA. If you or anyone you know is interested in a career helping people sell their businesses, please click here.
