Our franchisor, Sunbelt Business Brokers corporate office is located in Independence, Ohio and has 235 operating offices throughout the nation and abroad. Sunbelt Corporate has been ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine as the #1 business brokerage firm for 2005 and the previous 10 consecutive years.

What distinguishes Sunbelt from most typical business brokerage offices is the experience to help you buy and sell a business, the training and professionalism of its team of seasoned business brokers. In addition to Sunbelt Corporate and Sunbelt of the Greater Bay Area’s own rigorous training, most of Sunbelt’s brokers have a discipline degree (engineering, accounting, law, marketing, etc.) and an MBA. All have managed and/or owned their own companies large or small business. Sunbelt only works on a “contingency fee basis” which means we only get paid for successful closes.
