How to choose a business broker [infographic]

Posted by James Price | JPAbusiness on 23-Aug-2017 04:00:00

If you’re considering selling your business and have decided against self-marketing, how do you evaluate the abilities of all the different brokers out there?

There are some obvious attributes you need to look for – experience is a big one – but your own attitude is actually a critical factor.

If you think of a broker as simply someone who takes commission for selling your business, you’re not likely to get value from the relationship.

Working with an advisor or broker can be a partnership, if you’re prepared to think of it as one and you choose the right partner!

In order to find the right partner I suggest you evaluate more than one advisor or broker to help you sell your business.

The following infographic sums up the information you should request during this evaluation process.

Good luck!
