Mountain States Business Brokers Group, LLC 

Welcome to northern Colorado’s oldest and most trusted business brokerage firm. We trust that your visit will be both educational and rewarding. We are determined to provide only the highest level of ethical business intermediary services on a win-win basis for our buyers and sellers.
Whether you are searching out businesses for sale or you are an owner who wants to sell, you will be treated honestly and fairly regardless of which side of the transaction you are on as you enter the complex and often puzzling world of buying and selling businesses.
Except when engaged for a specific project, we act as a Transaction Broker, representing neither the buyer nor the seller as an exclusive agent. We assist the buyer or seller, or both, throughout the transaction in performing terms of agreements, fully informing both parties and assisting both parties throughout the transaction.  Our job is not to get in the way, but to educate the parties and facilitate the transaction from beginning to final closing.
If you ever get the feeling that isn’t happening or have other comments about your experience with our Mountain States Business Brokers Group, LLC  I want to hear from you.

Sell A Business With MSBBA at Keller Williams

Every transaction must meet certain standards of reasonableness to reach a successful conclusion. Sellers want to get maximum value for their business- it’s probably going to be the biggest and most important financial transaction of their life. Buyers want to get the best deal they can for their money since it’s probably going to be the biggest and most important financial transaction of their life as well- so far. When they sell the business sometime in the future, which most business owners eventually do, they want that to become the biggest and most important financial transaction of their life.

Our goal is to help buyers and sellers reach that common ground known as mutual agreement at a reasonable value- to use an overworked term, a “win-win” transaction. In nearly all transactions we act as a Transaction Broker or Intermediary and not as the buyer’s or seller’s exclusive agent. A better title might be “advisors to the transaction.”

With many years of proven experience in main-street and lower middle-market transactions, backed by even more years of business ownership and management experience, our Associates have the understanding and focus to help buyers and sellers alike reach that common ground. Since the transfer of business ownership is often a once-in-a-lifetime event, most of our buyers and sellers are experiencing the process for the first time. Advance preparation and education are important for success and we have the experience and expertise to guide both parties in that process.
