We operate from beautiful Victoria, BC in Canada. However, we work with business owners all across Canada and the USA.
DealBuilder was founded by 3 business brokers who saw that the traditional business brokerage model didn’t work for every business owner. Not only was the process expensive, many brokers were using out-of-date systems that didn’t optimize success. This sparked an idea amongst the Co-Founders to bring 21st century tools to the business brokerage industry, which would give every business (regardless of size) the ability to sell.
DealBuilder offers brokers both a flat-subscription monthly fee or a success-based fee (yes you only pay when deals close). We work with you to create a quote that works best for your brokerage. To learn more about pricing, book a call with our team.
The short answer is no. Instead, DealBuilder connects with your CRM of choice (Pipedrive, Hubspot, etc.) to ensure that all your buyer & seller contacts are synced. Within DealBuilder, brokers can track buyer page views, submitted NDAs, and other key deal analytics.
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 offer many back-office services that are not marketing-related (such as CIM writing, data rooms, buyer CRM, etc.).
Your buyer contacts are synced with your CRM. Further, buyers are associated with your account for each deal you bring onto the platform.
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.
As long as we have all the information we need (such as a completed intake questionnaire) our turnaround time is generally 5-7 business days depending on the complexity of the deal.
Because you can’t improve what you don’t measure. Further, many business owners have a false sense of the value of their business (unfortunately it is usually inflated). More importantly, there are several small things that you can do that make a tremendous difference when it comes to selling your business - most of which are easier than you think.
Exit-planning is a catch-all term that applies to many things. We like to break it down to anything that improves the valuation or saleability of your business (read this article to understand the difference).
This can be as little as incorporating your business, cleaning-up your company finances, paying yourself a salary, or larger projects like hiring a full-time General Manager. These are all strategies we cover in the DealBuilder Community.
