DealBuilder is the most cost-effective back-office solution for your business brokerage. From client on-boarding, writing buyer presentations, financial data entry, to marketing your listing to buyers - DealBuilder has you covered.
The best part? Our unique pricing model means you only pay for DealBuilder when a deal closes.

Co-founded by 3 business brokers, we started DealBuilder to make our brokerage more efficient. Starting with a buyer presentation tool, DealBuilder has evolved to become an end-to-end deal management platform, including:
1. Digital buyer presentations & writing service (example here)
2. Business valuation tool
3. Automated NDA management
4. Buyer CRM
5. Due diligence management
6. Buyer network
7. Client on-boarding automation
In exchange for a 0.5% transaction fee at closing, we complete all back-end work for your deals. That’s right, if the deal doesn’t close - you don’t pay us anything.
DealBuilder guides your seller through a custom on-boarding process, from answering your intake questionnaire to uploading due diligence files.
Using answers from the seller questionnaire, our team writes the first draft of the buyer presentation for your approval.
DealBuilder has its own database of buyers, allowing you to get additional buyer exposure to deals added to the platform.
After normalizing the data, your report is ready to present to your client. This comprehensive report not only contains the business valuation but industry benchmarking data and improvement opportunities. See an example here.
Invite lawyers, bankers, accountants, and advisors to your DealBuilder data-room. Need escrow support? DealBuilder is an official partner of Escrow.com.

The 0.5% is only payable at deal closing. For example, DealBuilder receives $5,000 for a $1M deal. The 0.5% fee is capped at a maximum of $10,000 per deal (to save you the math that’s a $2M transaction). There is also a minimum fee of $1,000 per deal ($200,000 transaction).
No, we actually see ourselves as a supplement to BizBuySell. While we have a strong (and growing) buyer pool, BizBuySell is still the best site for Main Street buyer marketing. That being said, we also offer lots of services BizBuySell does not (such as CIM writing, data rooms, buyer CRM, etc.).
DealBuilder has a light-weight buyer CRM. Meaning, that you can view buyer profiles, contact information, and how many times they’ve viewed a deal. However, we do not replace all the functionality of a comprehensive CRM such as Hubspot or Pipedrive.
Buyers are associated with each deal you bring onto the platform and associated with your account. Note: similar to other business-for-sale platforms, buyers are able to see other deals on the DealBuilder platform. However, we see this as more a benefit than a detriment, since this means you also get additional buyer exposure for your deals as the platform grows.
Yes! We provide a 20% referral fee for brokers who want to send deals that are too small, not a good fit, or in the wrong geographic area, to sell using our self-directed service.
