About Us

Established by professional licensed agents with over 16 years of business sales experience, we deal with buyers both domestically and internationally.

We pride ourselves on our ‘tailor-made’ approach to selling a business as opposed to a one-size-fits-all philosophy. Each individual business requires its own sales strategy and the way it is prepared for sale and marketed will depend on the ideal approach to achieve the best sale price over the most efficient time frame.



Specialising in strategic business sales, M&A, buyer advocacy and business re-sale we also offer extensive consulting services such as business valuation and benchmarking, settlement and handover, and business advisory.

Custom Approach

Our approach is centred on preparing your business for sale to the highest possible standard and then generating the maximum amount of interest in the short term through extensive marketing and leveraging our database to create a competitive environment in order to achieve a sale for our clients.

We are well known in the business community for our ability to sell businesses off-market and in a confidential manner that does not alert customers, key suppliers, staff and competitors. We employ a both strategic and consultative approach that allows us to work with our vendors to achieve the best exit possible.

Business Model

Our collaborative business model allows us to work with a wide network of business brokering agencies, accounting, and private equity firms across Australia to connect buyers and sellers. We have a large database of qualified buyers that are able to register their criteria for their ideal business, which allows us to connect buyers and sellers without having to necessarily go to the open-market – saving time, money and maintaining confidentiality. We aim to connect sellers with the right buyers and to assist in making the transaction process as smooth and painless as possible.

Does every business sell?

We believe that every business in every industry has got the potential to be sellable, as long as it posses one of below points of attraction:

  1. Lifestyle (flexible hours, minimal physical involvement, business appeals to current lifestyle, outdoors / home-based, high effort to reward ratio for purchaser)
  2. Ability to currently operate or place the business under management without the owner operator’s physical involvement.
  3. Intrinsic Value – Although the business may not be currently profitable, it may have substantial asset value that can be better utilised, or may have the potential to succeed under new management or through a merger or acquisition.
  4. Scalability – The ability to grow the business and be a vehicle for a purchaser to achieve their personal financial goals.

How long will it take to sell my business?

The time a business will take to sell depends on a variety of factors including:

  • The industry in which it operates – whether it is in a niche market or in a popular/common industry.
  • The current state of the economy
  • How readily available your supporting documentation is. (i.e. financials, lease, sales data, contracts etc.)
  • The premises lease (if applicable) – the agreement including rent and conditions currently in place with your landlord will transfer to the purchaser, so it forms an important part of the business sale transaction.
  • Business presentation – Professional Business Profile and Information Memorandum supported by an expert business agent in the marketplace.
    Marketing being conducted (using all necessary strategies and platforms)


At Expert Business, we aim to have an offer accepted within the first 3 months of listing the business for sale. We are then with you every step of the way through the settlement and handover process which is usually an additional 8-12 weeks depending on above-aforementioned factors.

What are the steps a buyer must go through to purchase my business?

  • Complete a non-disclosure / confidentiality agreement & screening process.
  • Reviewing the business profile document prepared by Expert Business.
  • Review financial and supporting documents. 
  • Site-inspection or meeting arranged with the vendor and selling agent.
  • Consultation with professional advisors prior to submitting an offer.
  • Reviewing and executing a Contract of Sale 
  • Preparing the documentation for the landlord and franchisor approval (if applicable)
  • Settlement and handover -Plant & Equipment check, training, transfer of assets and IP, arranging finance (if applicable) and arranging the handover date. 


At Expert Business, we work closely with the purchaser to help co-ordinate all of the above points to ensure a smooth transition and guidance throughout the process.

How does Expert Business differ from the other brokers or agencies that are in the marketplace?

  • Business Preparation – Through the use of modern design, audio-visual tools and a web- based platform we offer industry leading, cutting-edge methods to present your business in a way that cuts through to buyers. This is achieved through the construction of a comprehensive and attractive Business Profile supported by media such as video and virtual tour, and deal room access for advisors to complete the due diligence on the business. Once going on the market, the buyer has everything they need to confidently make an offer for your business.
  • Our unique marketing strategy – We use an off-market (Buyer database, professional advisors, known industry contacts), and on-market strategy (advertising on major business for sale websites, social media pages) for most of our businesses. When we are actively working on both fronts we can source prospects for your business in a quicker timeframe and create the environment necessary to sell your business via competitive bid.
  • End to end service – Whilst most business brokering agencies assist a buyer and vendor up until the execution of the final contract of sale, and leave it up to the vendor and purchasers solicitors to complete the transaction, we believe that the job is only half completed and it makes complete sense for us to have an active role and be involved to provide assistance to the vendors, buyers and their professional advisors all the way up until the day of handover and funds are transferred to the vendor.

Experience – Our experienced team of agents are all experts in their field and possess great communication and negotiation skills which have assisted clients throughout the years in achieving satisfactory sale results. This is achieved in part by providing an accurate assessment and appraisal of the business, which will assist the vendor in gaining a much clearer understanding and prediction of the sales result and how the market will respond to both their business and desired asking price.
