Business Brokerage

The growing local office of the world’s largest and oldest business brokerage network is looking to add to its team a few self-motivated associates to function as broker/agents in the River Valley and Northwest areas of Arkansas as well as Southwest Missouri. A business broker/agent finds sellers and buyers of companies and arranges the transactions between them. This draws upon the broker/agent’s capabilities in sales, marketing, financial analysis, negotiations, financing and business management. The successful business broker/agent has a smooth blend of inter-personal, financial, and personal organization skills. The position requires a highly-organized approach and a solid understanding of business financials. You must have high ethical and professional standards, and be a confident, creative problem-solver and natural networker. Although the position requires both sales/marketing and financial skills, the qualities of an effective salesperson are the most critical ones for success.

When selecting new members for our team (and we are very team oriented), we look for the traditional indicators of success in business brokerage:

  • Maturity- at least 20 years of business experience
  • Initiative – a well-organized, well-planned self-starter
  • Creativity- development of solutions for complex business problems
  • Selling experience- prospecting for, qualifying and closing customers and sales
  • Business ownership- past entrepreneurial and management experience, a plus
  • Education- college degree required, MBA, JD or CPA, a plus
  • Background – management or financial consulting, or commercial/industrial real estate may be a plus

We provide detailed business broker training, drawing upon the organization’s 30 years of success and thousands of transactions, as well as coaching and a broad range of support.

The position offered is that of an Independent Contractor. THIS IS A COMMISSION-ONLY POSITION in which you will be expected to earn $100,000 or more per year, depending largely on your own efforts and results. Business brokerage is a complex, extended process so a new broker should expect 6-9 months before collecting that first commission check. But we place no upper limit on your earnings potential. This is challenging, very interesting work that can be highly rewarding for the right person.

With millions of baby boomers approaching retirement age, we are now in the initial stage of what is expected to be the greatest wave of business transitions in US history. NOW is the time to enter this industry—Get a foothold now and be at the peak of your game as more and more businesses come to market.

We are an equal opportunity enterprise and we are particularly interested in including some women on our team.
