photo_azcentral02Welcome to the Arizona Business Brokers Association (AZBBA) Central Chapter

AZBBA is a non-profit organization consisting of professional Business Brokers and a group of Affiliate members  which was established in the mid-1970’s by a small group of local Business Brokers. At that time it was named “Valley Business Exchange” (VBE).

Our Business Broker members today represent 30+ Business Brokerage Firms and approximately 70 Business Brokers throughout the  Phoenix Metropolitan area.  This is a tremendous benefit to our Sellers. We are able to give them the marketing exposure with the other Business Broker members and still maintain our high level of professionalism and confidentiality.

Our Affiliate members offer a large variety of services in order to assist the Buyers and Sellers in the process of buying/selling their business, such as legal advice, accounting advice, document preparation, business financing, business insurance, setting up merchant accounts and many other services that will make this process go as smoothly as possible.

AZBBA members are able to work together with confidence and the assurance that all members are following the same “Code of Ethics” and “AZBBA By-Laws”. In addition to this, they receive many other benefits, such as:

  1. Regular meetings on the 2nd and 4th Thursday every month (except holidays)

  2. Education is provided by our “Education Chairperson” at each meeting.

  3. An annual Convention in April which is conducted by professional  Business Brokers not only from Arizona but also from across the US.  This is an opportunity for all AZBBA members and non-members to take advantage of excellent education in the Business Brokerage industry at a nominal fee.

  4. License Renewal hours are given 3 times per year in our regular meetings.

  5. A business listing service that provides members and potential buyers access to several hundred business opportunities that are currently on the market.

  6. Affiliate members that will work very hard with you to ensure a smooth transaction.

  7. A Professional website with information on each of our Business Broker and Affiliate members.

AZBBA members strive for a high level of professionalism and Ethics, Confidentiality to our clients, networking and continuing education. We believe that our clients should expect nothing less.
