Houston Business Brokers offers full-service business brokerage representation on a very mainstream, normal basis. We have owned, started, bought, sold, brokered, and financed businesses. Therefore, we can very closely relate to your interests regarding the divestiture or acquisition of a business. The professionals at Houston Business Brokers organize the entire selling/buying process, while allowing the business owner or buyer to concentrate on operating his/her current interests. Houston Business Brokers coordinates the efforts of the other professionals involved in the sale, as well as provide the guidance needed to successfully close the sale.

All representation assignments are treated with utmost confidentiality and professionalism. We do not disclose confidential information without signed statements of confidentiality (Non-Disclosure Agreements). Full documentation disclosure must be preceded by financial statements being provided by all interested, potential buyers. There are no exceptions.

In short, our full-service representation is based on the industry norm scale and we are very open, forthright, and upfront about our compensation terms. Seller and Buyer representation fees are both based on the following:

  • Success fees based on the industry standard Lehman Scale (see below)
  • Pre-sale planning, due diligence, and preparation fee (as determined)
  • All incurred expenses related to marketing paid by Seller as incurred (billed weekly)
Lehman Scale
Up to $1,000,000 10%
$1,000,000 to $2,000,000 8%
$2,000,000 to $3,000,000 6%
$3,000,000 to $4,000,000 4%
$4,000,000 and over 2%


A company selling for $2,400,000 will have the following fees by the Intermediary/Broker:

X 10% of the first $1,000,000
8% of the second $1,000,000
6% of $400,000
8.5% of total amount

We well connected to the business brokerage community on a local, statewide, national, and even international basis. We are very closely associated with the leadership of the largest network of business brokers. Consequently, our marketing abilities can be very local and personal or very broad and far-reaching.

All of our client-broker relationships include a mutually agreed upon plan of marketing (which is developed prior to the actual marketing process) which fully benefits from our  large-scale marketing ability. Further details regarding this will be discussed upon the final agreement to proceed with the client-broker relationship.

If you are divesting yourself of the business the business that you’ve worked so hard to build we fully understand and can very closely empathize with your passions about it. If you are very seriously in pursuit of acquiring a business, we also can very closely relate. Put simply, we’ve been in your shoes and we know what you’re wanting and going through because we’ve been there. We also know that we can more than adequately assist you and we invite you to contact us regarding our services.
