To be a business broker with our company, you will primarily create your own hours, but are required to meet at our Southlake office once a week for continued training and group meetings.
The role of a business broker is to negotiate business transactions between buyer and seller, and get paid via a 10-12% commission once each deal closes (real estate agents receive only 3-6% of much smaller transactions). It is not uncommon to transact multimillion dollar deals in this field. Sellers reach out to business brokers when they are ready to sell their businesses; and it is the job of the business broker to connect them to the right buyers and walk them through the process from start to finish.
As a business broker you will be trained to be a true business professional as you will have to deal with lawyers, accountants and landlords to transact business. You will have to be on your A-game when working with us, but we allow you the autonomy to work your own schedule and your own hours to get the deals done (even though the office space is available to you and will require that you meet once a week).
