Nathan Goldstein, Chief Executive Officer, founded Vested Business Brokers in January 2000. At that time Nathan was a successful Wall Street investment banker who participated in helping to raise over one billion dollars to fund various projects. However, a number of the deals Nathan hoped to bring to fruition fell apart because of the disparity between the financial information principals were claiming, and the factual financial information uncovered during due diligence. It just was not possible to create parameters in advance that could help in predetermining the veracity of the financials of any deal that was up for consideration. This was because there was no way to compare the financial reporting of a company seeking investment against the reported financial data of existing companies of the same type. There simply was no database in existence at the time that contained this "comparable information," and it was Nathan's desire to create one that led to the birth of Vested Business Brokers.
Today the Vested database contains over 350,000 pre-qualified, registered business buyers and the complete financial details of over 3,600 businesses for sale we have worked together with over the last eight years. Our database is fully searchable by myriad criteria, and it is an indispensable research tool. Individual Vested Business Brokers price businesses for sale based upon the wishes of their sellers and the information contained within the database. The database also automatically matches potential business buyers with businesses for sale, and functions to funnel potential business buyers from all around the world to view suitable businesses for sale on our Website after we market them globally on the Internet.
As the fastest growing, largest, privately held, non-franchise based, business brokerage network in the United States, we invite you to experience the difference and learn for yourself how relevant search and our database can help you successfully buy a business or sell your business. Our comparables will help you to determine if the pricing of the business you are buying or selling is in line with your local market, and no other business brokerage firm has such a complete set of data available.
Pioneering the state-of-the-art tools we use to help you buy or sell your business is only part of the Vested story. Most importantly, we understand that business brokerage is ultimately about people. All of the technology in the universe cannot sell a business or buy a business on its own. It takes people to close every deal, and the superior way we work with our buyers and sellers is what has made us so successful—in fact, much of our business today is referral based!
We fully train each of our business brokers through intensive, initial coursework and live training with seasoned business brokers and industry specialists. We then continue our brokers' education by offering advanced training opportunities. Our network of over 130 business brokers works efficiently and effectively throughout local markets in the United States, and our support staff for brokers, buyers, and sellers is by far the finest available.
