“The Great American Dream”…

Owning your own business brokerage agency can be a fascinating, rewarding career. Business brokers are instrumental in helping business buyers and sellers participate in free enterprise, commonly referred to as “The Great American Dream”. 

Business brokers not only list and sell businesses and franchises (much like Realtors list and sell real estate); business brokers also assist business buyers and sellers with all aspects of the acquisition process. 

It is estimated that over 1,000,000 different businesses experience a change in ownership every year nationwide, in towns and cities large and small, and business brokers are commonly involved in many of those transactions, for which the broker receives an attractive fee and/or commission.


First National Business Corporation (FNBCTM)…

FNBCTM has been successfully involved in the business brokerage business since 1982. During that time, our principals have worked as commissioned agents, have listed and sold thousands of different businesses, started business brokerage agencies from scratch, bought and sold agencies, and consulted with and guided many folks who wanted to own their own agency, many of whom chose to join FNBC'sTM Licensed Offices Program.


Licensed Offices Program…

FNBCTM acts as a consultant/licensor/mentor/coach, providing business brokerage agency owners and prospective agency owners with advice on starting and/or managing every aspect of a business brokerage agency.
