First Choice Business Brokers Irvine


Since we were established in 1994, First Choice Business Brokers has grown to become one of the largest organizations in the U.S. specializing in business sales. We have listed and managed the sale of over $7.5 billion in businesses for sale. Buyers and sellers alike can enjoy the ease and expertise of a national network of professional business brokers.

Each Agent at First Choice Business Brokers brings extensive training and experience to the table with each business sale they help negotiate. Our professional brokers come from a variety of backgrounds, including accounting, law, banking, real estate and insurance – so no matter what business you are looking to buy or sell, you can trust that you will be in well-qualified hands.

First Choice University (FCU) provides our Business Brokers with comprehensive training and ongoing education to ensure the best experience for business buyers and sellers. With First Choice, you can expect our Business Sales Professionals to be some of the most highly trained experts in business valuation, business marketing and buy/sell negotiations that satisfy both sides of the table. You will only find our exclusive business listings through one of our First Choice Business Sales Professionals.

The buying or selling of a business should never be compared to a home sale. Unlike selling a home, a business sale should always involve a high level of confidentiality and a broker who will work with you from the initial listing, through negotiations, and finally to signing the paperwork. You deserve an experienced, licensed professional who specializes in business sales – you deserve a First Choice Business Brokers.

With First Choice Business Brokers, you can enjoy the greatest selection of businesses for sale nationwide. Or as a seller, you can expect to receive individualized attention in your local market.

First Choice Business Brokers is proudly a member in good standing with the International Franchise Association, Canadian Franchise Association and International Business Brokers Association.
