What Questions Should You Ask a Business Broker?

If you are selling your business for the first time, you might be a bit worried about what to enquire about the business broker you have.

Here are some questions you may want to ask a business broker when considering working with them to sell your business:

  • What are your experience and track record in selling businesses similar to mine?
  • What is your process for marketing and finding potential buyers for my business?
  • How will you communicate with me throughout the process of selling my business?
  • What is your fee structure, and how do you get paid?
  • How will you help me negotiate the best possible price and terms for my business?
  • Do you have any references or testimonials from past clients that I can review?
  • What additional resources or support do you offer to help me prepare my business for sale?
  • Can you provide any guidance on the legal and financial aspects of selling a business?
  • How do you handle confidentiality during the sale process?
  • What are your expectations for my involvement in the sale process?

Scot Cockroft Business Broker
Hi, I’m Scot Cockroft.

When I founded Sigma Mergers and Acquisitions back in 2003, I had sold my business the year prior.

Now, that can sound good, but let me tell you, back in 2003, it was not easy to sell a business. Not that I’m saying in modern day times it’s easy to sell a business, but back then I interviewed broker after broker after broker, and no one was interested in actually seeing the value that my business brought to the table.
