About Us

What is a Business Broker?

A business broker assists clients in buying or selling a business. This covers a broad spectrum of businesses activities. 

Cape Business Bureau can also inform you, the client, of the legal aspects of selling and buying a business and put you in contact with financial organizations to assist with financing. 
To buyers: Owning your own business is becoming an increasingly popular choice for more and more people. Our role is to assist you in every step of the way to ensure that you find the right business for your needs and that every detail is taken care of along the way.
To sellers: Your business, which may be one of the single biggest assets you own and a result of hard work and dedication, warrants that you get maximum value for your business and work with a broker who is knowledgeable and professional. Be sure you get maximum exposure for your business by listing with Cape Business Bureau.
  • We offer brokerage services in the sale or purchase of a business - the process of selling or buying a business is our expertise as there are pitfalls for the inexperienced. 
  • For negotiation advice, or if you are in doubt of any aspects, contact Cape Business Bureau.
