Business Brokerage as a Viable Business Opportunity in Today’s Economy: As baby boomers retire, they are looking to sell their businesses to establish a livable nest egg. As a result, there is an approaching flood of baby boomers selling their businesses, which is creating a seismic shift in the transfer of almost 18 million businesses set to sell in the next 5 years. Over $10 trillion in assets will change hands to younger entrepreneurs over the next 7 years and the intermediaries who will be brokering the sales of these small to mid-size businesses. This hand-off is already underway and is fanning the flames of a newly hot business-for-sale market.

LINK Business is an international franchise business brokerage. Founded in 1996 in New Zealand, and now as the largest business brokerage in the southern hemisphere, rapidly expanding throughout the US, we are committed to the successful sale of small to mid-size businesses. LINK has positioned itself as a leading brokering group with a team of world-class business brokers who represent buyers and sellers in these sales. Backed by powerful marketing, broker tools and technology systems, our support to both our brokers and clients is exceptional.
