About Business Team

Business Team, a unit of BTI Group, is the Largest Business Brokerage Firm in the Western United States specializing in arranging the purchase and sale of privately owned companies. During our third of a century of existence, we have developed both an unmatched depth of experience (an aggregate of several hundred years!) and a vast network of individual, corporate, and investment group buyers.

In addition, our affiliation with the International Business Brokers Association allows us to reach buyers represented by other intermediary firms throughout the world.

Why Choose the Business Team Brokerage?


Are you concerned about customers, vendors or employees learning about the sale of your business? While absolute secrecy cannot be guaranteed, when a Business Team broker arranges a sale, it most often happens that no one knows until the owner makes the announcement. Ask us about how we can tailor the level of confidentiality to meet your particular needs.


With over 80 full-time associates, Business Team is the largest business brokerage in the United States. More associates mean access to more potential buyers for your business! More buyers means competition and competing buyers can help ensure you get market value for your business. Collectively, we have personal relationships with thousands of buyers who rely on our expertise and recommendations in making a buying decision.


Marketing a business for sale on the internet has become a very useful supplement to traditional methods. (Our own site, www.business-team.com accounts for about 30% of our leads.) In addition, there are dozens of other sites which come and go and have greatly varying effectiveness. We make it our business to know which ones work best for your business.


Over 35 years of matching buyers with businesses gives Business Team a depth of experience unmatched in the industry, experience that will ensure that the sale of your business will be a safe and profitable event.


Business Team has sold over 6,000 businesses - high tech, low tech, manufacturing, service, retail, food & beverage. In fact, in over 35 years we have sold just about every type of business. (References available upon request.)
