Business Brokers operating in Queensland are required by law to hold a Real Estate License issued by the Office of Fair Trading. As such, a great majority of the systems, firms and individual Business Brokers have migrated from selling Real Estate to small business but the transition isn't entirely straight forward.
Many business brokers operate as individuals paid on commission only within an organisation that supplies systems and branding but little more. There are few brokers who as individuals can compete with the results achievable by a highly qualified team of specialists, working together on every critical component of a business sale.
We are Different!
Our innovative operations are designed around a Service philosophy rather than the traditional Sales philosophy adopted by most other firms. While the difference in approach is sometimes quite subtle, our fundamental values present themselves in a number of ways:
- Commitment - we commit to complete our work for every client we take on. That goes for the fast sales as well as the not so fast. Because of this commitment, we remain active for all clients, constantly reviewing our sale presentation and strategy.
- Communication - we recognise the need for frequent and detailed communication with all stakeholders and have established internal systems and standards to ensure you stay up to date and empowered.
- Confidentiality - we consider our clients confidentiality of the utmost importance and all buyers are subject to a strict qualification process to ensure business information remains confidential and that details are only provided to serious and capable potential buyers.
- Integrity - we tell our clients exactly what we think of their business. We don't put a business on the market until the owner makes an informed decision about the asking price and conditions of sale.
- Transparency - We adopt a high level of transparency in all business dealings that significantly reduces the risk to buyers. This builds an atmosphere of trust and dramatically improves the results we can achieve.
- Compliance - As an Accredited Agency, we are fully compliant with all legislation and codes of conduct and have systems in place to ensure we stay compliant. This is a signficant investment that other firms cannot match.
- Management - We have an unusually high level of management systems and controls supporting every client that can only be sustained in a disciplined including full project management, client relationship management
- Results - We have experienced extraordinary results from this style of operation, not only in terms of our own business growth but also in terms of higher sale prices, shorter timeframes and dramtically improved sale success rates experienced by our clients.
