The owner of the Bethesda office earned his MBA in 1978 and has over 25 years of experience in a variety of businesses and large corporations.

We are able to successfully hold together deals that other brokers cannot.
The office is staffed with professionally trained brokers, many experienced in operating their own businesses. We provide a realistic opinion of market value for businesses and properly position them for sale.
The business broker position is mainly about marketing to business owners and then instilling confidence in them that you are the right choice to help them sell what may be their life’s work. If you succeed and get the listing, you prepare professional marketing materials for distribution to interested buyers, followed by contract negotiations, and problem solving through close of escrow. The position can be both very rewarding and very frustrating within the course of a few days. The minimum commission on each deal is $10,000 and can be a lot more than that. Some brokers have earned over $200,000 on a single transaction.
A successful Broker must have a strong business background and able to analyze financial statements, or be a very fast learner. You must have good communication and writing skills; organized, detail oriented, ethical, and have good people skills. You must be driven to earn a high annual income but have the flexibility to go without any income for 3 to 8 months. The sales cycle is relatively long and you must be prepared to get through this ramping-up period.
All positions are 100% commission-based. All agents are independent contractors and responsible for their own benefits. New brokers must have sufficient resources to carry themselves through the training and start-up phase. The ideal candidate has the following skills:
- Good organizational and time management skills
- Sales experience
- Bachelors degree in a business related discipline
- Strong work ethic
- Highest levels of integrity and character
- Desire to make high income
- Prior business owner experience a plus
