Frequently Asked Questions

Where is DealBuilder located?

We operate from beautiful Victoria, BC in Canada. However, we work with business owners all across Canada and the USA.

Why did you decide to start DealBuilder?

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 Not only was the process expensive, many brokers were using out-of-date systems that didn’t optimize success.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.

What are the fees?

DealBuilder is priced based on your number of active deals - talk to our team for a custom quote.

Is DealBuilder a CRM?

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.

Is DealBuilder a replacement to BizBuySell?

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.).

What happens to my buyer contacts?

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.

How long is your CIM/CBR turnaround time?

Why do I need a valuation if I am not planning on selling?

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.

Can you provide a few examples of exit planning strategies?

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.
