Sunbelt Business Brokers of Portland and Vancouver has been in the marketplace since 1998 and has sold over 200 businesses in all types of industry from small manufacturing to large nurseries, distributors, wine, restaurants, franchises, and franchise resales.
Sunbelt Business Brokers of Portland and Vancouver was founded in 1998 when the founder saw a need for serving business owners who wanted to divest themselves of their businesses because of a myriad of reasons: retirement, health concerns, divorce, relocation, and other personal interests. We saw the value of affiliation with a National network of Sunbelt Business Broker offices when a seller wants to sell a business, providing much greater exposure to sell a business. With the growth of the internet business buyers come from all over the world to look for businesses for sale. Sunbelt Business Brokers has a proven track record and a system for selling a business, and in fact the founder wrote the book “Selling Your Business for Dummies”. The Sunbelt Franchise has grown to over 140 offices in the United States and many worldwide. At any given time, there are approximately 4,000 listings in the Sunbelt System. The company believes in professionalism and continuing education to keep up with critical trends in the market place. The office owners are encouraged to be part of the professional association International Business Brokers Association and M&A Source, the leading associations in the industry.

Why use Sunbelt Business Brokers
Brokers bring significant value to the business sale process. We help with all aspects of the sale from valuation, marketing, vetting buyers, negotiation of price and terms, helping buyers secure financing all the other details through closing. We don’t charge much more than real estate brokers but provide a significantly higher level of involvement and expertise. While we provide many valuable services, we are often able to secure the seller a higher price than the business owner could get on his/her own – often enough that this service alone pays for our fee. We have many happy sellers who will testify to the quality and value of our services.
Main Street Businesses
General businesses that usually have gross sales of $1,000,000 or less per year and have 20 or fewer employees (95% of US businesses fall into this category). More businesses or this size are sold every year than any other type of business, and Sunbelt is the leader is selling Main Street businesses.
Sunbelt is a market leader in managing middle market transactions in the range of $1,000,000 – $20,000,000 in annual sales. We are adept at reaching all three types of buyers for this level of transaction; high net worth individuals, strategic buyers and private equity groups to maximize sale price for the seller and work for the buyer to have a successful close.
Sunbelt is pleased to represent a select group of franchisors with a proven track record of success in their field. When you buy a franchise, you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself. These franchisors have proven business systems and known names in their respective markets.
Thousands of existing franchise businesses resell every year, often for “human driven” reasons: the owner retires, dies, is in poor health, is getting a divorce, is relocating or experiences other life-changing circumstances. We always want to know why someone is selling a business, and so do you. Depending on the circumstances, the sale of an existing franchise may present a good business opportunity for the buyer. An existing franchise has the advantage of being an existing business plus the ongoing support provided by the franchisor. Those looking to buy a franchise can benefit from the professional assistance provided at Sunbelt.
