Arkansas’ largest business brokerage firm has opened an office in Little Rock! The CBI+Team of Central Arkansas office is located in the Schickel building at 11601 Pleasant Ridge Road, Little Rock, Arkansas 72212.
CBI has been helping people confidentially sell and buy privately owned business since 1994. Headquartered in Northwest Arkansas, CBI has Arkansas offices in Springdale and Fort Smith, along with Missouri offices in Springfield and Joplin. The CBI+Team also has representatives in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Duluth, Minnesota.
Connor Grimes is the managing partner in the Central Arkansas office. Mr. Grimes has a life-time of experience as a business intermediary, having been raised by a business broker, his father Carl, is Chairman of the CBI+Team.
“Central Arkansas is a market we have wanted to be in for some time”, said Grimes. “We have confidentially sold several businesses in the Little Rock area such as Willy D’s Piano Bar, Golf Cars of Arkansas, Sport Clips and others. We felt that the time is right to open an office here. We are excited to recruit, train and mentor a team of brokers and help business owners and buyers realize their dream of selling or buying a business,” Grimes said.
In the first six months of 2013, the CBI+Team has successfully brokered the sale of businesses ranging in size from $20,000 up to almost $8,000,000.
Connor Grimes related, “We are business intermediaries. We are deal makers. We are not attorneys or accountants. We want to help the seller and buyer find a win-win deal that works for everyone. Most of us have owned our own businesses in the past. I personally have bought and sold a business myself and participated in the sale of many businesses. This is a relationship business. Clients depend on us to help them make the most important financial decision of their lives. I enjoy looking a business owner or buyer in the eye and telling them, “I know exactly how you feel, I have been there”.
