About the Company

CABOT Business Brokers is an established business brokerage firm representing buyers and sellers throughout the New England region. Our staff is comprised of experienced business people who have owned and managed businesses themselves and are both knowledgeable and qualified to value and market businesses, to identify appropriate potential acquirers, and to structure and close the business transaction.
Our professional brokers work confidentially with sellers in valuing their businesses, in preparing an effective marketing plan, and in negotiation and closing successful business sales.
With buyers we similarly approach and evaluate acquisition opportunities as disciplined business executives, reviewing not only business profitability and performance, but also valuing commensurate business strategy, the market and competitive environment, growth opportunities, and ROI.
If you are just beginning to consider selling your business, or are entertaining thoughts about a business acquisition, contact CABOT Business Brokers for a no-commitment, free consultation to explore how we might be able to provide you with valuable, competent assistance in this important decision.
