What Is A Certified Business Intermediary (CBI)?
What is a CBI? Any person licensed to sell real estate can call themselves business brokers. However, only a few of us have the education,experience and the designation of Certified Business Intermediary to do so. Only eighty-five CBIs exist in the state of Florida and The Wellstone Group is the only office in Florida that requires its entire team to have this certification. Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) is the designation awarded by the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA) to members who have satisfied the educational requirements and conform to the ethical standards of IBBA. Why should you use a CBI? A CBI can help you optimize your transaction by identifying better prospects, clarifying investment potential, and helping you select the lawyers, accountants and other professionals who will provide the necessary counsel to assure a successful transition of ownership. A CBI is an experienced, proven professional whose claim of competence is supported and documented.
