The professional Business Brokers at FBIC will design a custom plan to promote your business to likely buyers. We directly market your business through global networks and on multiple websites, which means that you have a powerful network of business brokers working with us to find the perfect buyer.

We understand the importance of maintaining confidentiality, so information about your business is shared with potential buyers in stages as their level of interest heightens. Our brokerage firm does not disclose Confidential information without a signed Confidentiality Agreement and a buyer application. We work toward a full disclosure with either an Offer to Purchase or a Letter of Intent to Purchase. That’s not all! We use our banking and financing contacts to assist the buyer and arrange favorable financing. This includes traditional financing, small business loans (SBA) or the use of non-traditional lenders. By doing this, we can also help minimize the amount of seller financing
