What is a Business Broker?
A business broker is a trained professional that assists people to buy and sell businesses. Think about business brokers as the realtors in a business sense. Just like someone would use a realtor to help buy or sell a home, someone would use a business broker to buy or sell a business. Business brokers sometimes referred to as business intermediaries or business transfer experts help people navigate the complexities of the business sale process.
Do You Have What It Takes to Become a Business Broker?
To become a Murphy business broker in Iowa, you do not need any prior business brokerage experience, but you do need business experience. In some states, you will need a real estate license or a business broker license.
