We are committed to confidentiality, integrity and professionalism. When you choose Sunbelt of Oklahoma City, you save time and money with an authority in business sales you can trust.

Sunbelt was founded in 1978 and during the past three decades has rapidly grown to become the world’s largest business brokerage firm. Today, we have approximately 250 independently owned and operated offices, with nearly 1,400 transaction professionals, located in North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Australia. Collectively, Sunbelt manages 3,000 to 4,000 business sales each year.

As the world’s pre-eminent business brokerage firm, Sunbelt historically specialized in representing sellers of privately held businesses with a value of $1 million or less. During the past five years, as Sunbelt’s footprint has expanded and the Sunbelt brand has become more widely recognized, our local offices have managed increasingly larger transactions. This trend has been accelerated by our expanded service capabilities, our growing international presence and the propensity for national and regional investment banking firms to increasingly focus on “megadeals.” Sunbelt’s presence in the $1 to $20 million transaction market has steadily expanded so that, at any given point in time, our offices are collectively involved in managing approximately 100 transactions in this market segment. To the best of our knowledge, our organization is now handling as many or more of these sales transactions than any other Middle Market transaction firm.
