Message from the Chairman

Welcome to AZBBA! We are the Arizona Business Brokers Association. Our non-profit organization’s purpose is: promoting confidentiality, providing quality training, ethics and cooperation among professional Business Brokers throughout the State of Arizona. The practice of Business Brokerage is a specialty that, by its very nature demands that a professional Business Broker possess an expertise for business operations and a respect for confidentiality well beyond that of those trained in general real estate. Our Organization’s foundation began in 1983 with the primary purpose of group interaction with the end goal of better serving the Member’s respective clients. While that remains in our core, we have evolved since then and established the Arizona School of Real Estate and Business Brokerage. Our School’s main purpose is to provide the opportunity for further education that focuses on Business Brokerage while meeting the Arizona Department of Education’s requirements for the business broker’s license renewal. Our Organization awards the Certified Business Broker (CBB) designation to regular members of the AZBBA who have met the education and experience requirements set forth by the AZBBA. The general public can identify and rely upon this designation as evidence that our members are trained professionals expert in the field of business brokerage. A major focus of AZBBA is to provide professional training and development programs to increase the knowledge, ability and resources available to our members. These skills and capabilities will provide their clients with expert assistance in buying or selling a business.

Dave Peterson, Chairman AZBBA
