How To Choose A Tempe Business Broker
Choosing the right Tempe Business Broker to sell your business is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. If you choose right, you will most likely end up selling your business and for the most money possible. If you choose wrong, you may not sell your business or may leave money on the table. Below is a list of questions you should ask when interviewing an Arizona Broker:
1. How much experience do you have?
You don’t want to leave the sale of one of your biggest assets in the hands of a novice. It takes years of experiencing to learn how to properly facilitate the sale of a business. Only choose an experienced Broker.
2. Are you a member of the AZ Business Brokers Association (AZBBA)?
The AZBBA is the local trade organization for the Business Broker Industry. Members agree to abide by certain ethical standards. By choosing an AZBBA member to sell your business, you will be dealing with an ethical Broker.
3. Are you a member of the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA)?
The IBBA is the largest Business Broker trade group in the world. Members of this group receive advanced education and great global networking opportunities.
4. Are you a Certified Business Intermediary (CBI)?
The IBBA awards the Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) designation to Business Brokers who successfully complete educational classes and tests to prove they are competent to facilitate the sale of businesses. You’re taking a chance hiring an Arizona Business Broker to sell your business who doesn’t take their career serious enough to spend the time and money to make sure they are as up to date and educated as possible in the process of selling businesses.
5. Do you co-broke with other agents?
Many local Business Brokers do not co-broke. This is a disservice to their clients. By not co-brokering with other agents, they severely limit the pool of buyers they can sell your business to.
6. Are you a full-time agent?
Being a successful Arizona Business Broker takes a lot of time and hard work. I have never met a successful part-time Broker.
7. Do you only sell businesses or do you sell residential real estate also?
It is in your best interest to hire an agent that specializes in selling Tempe businesses. Selling a business takes a different skill set than selling a house. If you would like to speak with a Tempe Business Broker who meets all of these criteria, contact Phil Reese at 480-707-7721 or firstname.lastname@example.org
