The role of a Business Broker is one of great value, provided you find the right one who understands your business. A Business Broker’s absolute value however comes from being one of the very few who gains understanding of not only the Seller and the Buyer, but also their role in relation to the Market.
Many a professional, such as a Chartered Accountant, comes to the assistance of the Buyer or the Seller in their care when Exit is on the agenda. However rarely can they provide a fully-rounded view of all that needs to be considered, as they cannot be all things to everyone.
As for the question, where can one find a good Broker?
In order to find a competent broker one should take the recommendations of the professionals like your lawyers, Chartered accountants, or investment bankers. It is highly recommended to ask for large number of references from the brokers so that their authenticity of the person is highlighted and his dependability is assured, as pointed out in this article.
