Industry Facts

There is an ever-increasing demand in the business brokerage industry for professionally trained individuals. Business brokerage is virtually untapped. The retirement of self-employed baby boomers, corporate downsizing, and the ever-improving affordability of business entities have created an enormous market for decades to come. There are over 30 million+ businesses in the U.S. and only about 4,000 full-time business brokers. Studies show that at any given time 1 out of every 5 businesses is for sale or would like to sell. Looking at that number nationally, that is 20% of 30 million businesses. That is 6 million business owners that need a business broker, and only 4,000 business brokers to fill that need.

How We Train and Support You

The systems you will receive at First Choice are the most complete and comprehensive in the industry, making them easy to understand and implement in your office. We provide training as a continual resource so you are always ahead of the competition— new franchisee and agent training, ongoing monthly owner training, monthly agent training, on-demand training videos, informative roundtable discussions, and national conferences. We leave nothing to chance when it comes to organizing your office with easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions and strong support that is only a phone call or click away.

For the right individuals, we also offer our extremely attractive Area Representative opportunities. As an Area Representative, you will be our partner in growing your territory by bringing on new franchises in your area.
