Businesses We’ve Worked With

“Bill was very professional in his approach and very positive, not only in his belief it would sell, but in his advice and encouragement to me along the way. He went way above and beyond in helping the buyers and myself negotiate the transaction. I will always be thankful for his help in bringing a quality buyer to my door.”

– Ken Milleman


“After 26 years of ‘Ups and Downs’ I found the process of transferring ownership with the help of Bill Patten and Sunbelt to be very straightforward. As to the fee, it was earned several times over as the business transaction would have failed without the tools that Sunbelt has available to help present the business to a potential buyer.

“I feel strongly that having Sunbelt represent us is the decision that made the transfer of our business possible, pleasant and productive.”

-Roger Anderson


“Thank you Bill Patten and Sunbelt Business Brokers for making the sale of our business successful. I appreciated their expertise and professionalism. Selling our company was a major step in our lives and Sunbelt was sensitive to our needs and desires. I highly recommend Bill and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell a business.”

– Bill Stevens

About Us

Sunbelt Business Brokers of Portland/Vancouver was founded over 20 years ago. Owner Bill Patten saw a need for business owners to receive support for selling their businesses due to various reasons, including retirement, health concerns, relocation, divorce, and other personal interests.

Affiliating with the national network of Sunbelt Business Brokers offers the exposure and credibility necessary for you to sell or buy a business with confidence. Sunbelt Business Brokers has a proven track record for selling businesses, with franchises toppling over 150 offices nationally and internationally.

We successfully sell over 80% of our businesses, while the average broker sells only 20%. Why are we so successful? We set a fair price, educate sellers and buyers, manage the process professionally, and work with the best SBA banks to secure financing for buyers.

Our company believes in professionalism, confidentiality, client education, and implementing expertise to evaluate, sell, and buy businesses that suit your needs. We look forward to helping you take the next big step in your business journey.
