Austin Business Broker Services

Corporate Investment Austin business brokers have sold over 400 businesses since 1984. Many of these were in the $1 million to $5 million sales price range, and are typically run by the original founder who was ready to move on and receive the maximum value for their hard work. These types of businesses are often acquired by financial buyers or individuals who want to run the businesses themselves.
