Horizon Business Brokers offer our clients years of professionalism, experience, expertise, and knowledge in the process of buying a business. We keep everything confidential by following the strict code of ethics set forth by the IBBA. We specialize in the Washington, DC area and Mid Atlantic region, but can help you purchase any business nationwide.
Business brokers typically represent the seller in most sales, but at Horizon we also offer representation for buyers as well. We think it’s important to work closely with buyers to insure a seamless transition and will give you all the facts on the specific industry or business you wish to purchase. We have more info on registering as a buyer below.
A buyer must sign a confidentiality agreement before any information is given out on a particular business to maintain the critical element of confidentiality.

Upon approval we will send an email sharing 100% of the information available on our listings.
With Horizon Business Brokers, LLC our main concern is to educate our buyers in the process of purchasing a business. We walk you through the process step by step to make sure your goals are achieved. An important aspect of the purchase process is to help you understand the sellers discretionary cash flow and EBITDA. We will assist you in understanding the amount of cash flow generated from the business, which will be available for you to draw as compensation, and to service any debt incurred during the acquisition. All financial information prepared is based on filed tax returns, which will be made available for a buyer’s review at the appropriate time during the process. We recommend that you have an accountant and a lawyer, as they are important to the process. We have relationships with accountants and lawyers that can assist you if you don’t already have representation.
