Company Information

Founded in 1978, Vermont Business Brokers is a team of skilled professionals focussed on assisting buyers and sellers of Vermont companies. Our belief that each transaction must benefit both the seller and the buyer is the cornerstone of our continued growth. The transfer of business ownership is a complex and detailed process that requires the teamwork of skilled professionals.

Considering we are completely focussed within the state of Vermont, we have a proven track record of connecting buyers and sellers based on our vast network of past interactions. We often know of a buyer for your business before even reaching steps of advertising and marketing. On the flip side, we have a large database of sellers who we have worked with in the past. If you are a current buyer, but you are not seeing what you are looking for, chances are we may have a contact for you.

Please don't hesitate to give us a call today. We are happy to discuss your business interests. (802) 495-0917
