Business Broker

About Us

  • Established in 2000, Arizona Business Sales is a boutique brokerage firm specializing in the confidential representation of privately held businesses across a broad range of industries. Unlike ​most business brokerage / M&A firms, we are not driven by sales goals and quotas while paying little attention to our client’s goals. We work with a limited number of clients so we can provide a high level of customer service from valuation to closing. We are a “full service” business brokerage firm meaning we get involved at a granular level from the start and remain at that level until the client’s goals are achieved.
  • We are industry agnostic, and our enterprise value focus is $2M to $50M many having a commercial property component.
  • We have created and utilize proprietary valuation tools that not only establish the value of the business but also provides a detailed method to defend the asking price to naturally skeptical buyers…….There is a reason why our success rate is three to four times greater than the embarrassing industry average success rate of 20%!!
  • We represent clients in the Phoenix metro area as well as Flagstaff, Prescott, Sedona, Kingman and many other cities in Arizona.
  • We will successfully represent you whether you need representation to sell your closely held business or provide guidance through the business acquisition maze.
