I have been working at Vested Business Brokers as a contractor (Less than a year)
I feel that my desire to be successful and determination to achieve excellence has been perfectly aligned with Vested Business Brokers. This company is so passionate in their efforts for me to succeed that everyone from the firm takes their undivided time to train me, mentor me, and direct me to be the best business broker that a business seller and buyer could ask for in today's market. Vested Business Broker's technology platform is AWESOME!! I have instant notification of someone looking to buy a business or businesses, and never ending access to sellers who want to sell their business or businesses. Vested does not hold back in giving me what I need to make my broker business grow. And, the broker network is the largest group of professional people I have ever known. Being in sales my whole life, I thought it was always a dog eat dog world. BUT HERE!! MY FELLOW BROKERS WANT ME TO SUCCEED!! They have told me that the more successful I become, then the more successful they become. And it's true. I have seen more brokers join and the listing increase, and my buyers find their business to buy and vice versa. This company gives my sellers, I feel, the most exposure when marketing their business than any other brokerage company out there. I've researched other companies and how they operate, and that is what I have found. My buyers have instant updates on new listings and are always kept in the loop. My job made easy. I love the business, flexible time schedule, the people I work with, and of course the money. Life is good.
As an independent contractor, it is up to me to succeed or FAIL. There is no guarantees of business, pay, advancement, and security. Sometimes buyers and sellers TRY to cut me out of the deal and make side agreements. If I don't watch myself, I get side tracked and lose focus on what I am doing and what is important. I occasionally need to plug myself into the company to get re-energized and re-directed.
Advice to Management
It is hard to give advice to positive, motivated, successful, and caring management (which is very hard to find), but here I go....Keep up the good work Nathan and Marie.

I have been working with Vested Business Brokers for over nine years. I started out with training and I must admit the first few months I thought I could do it my way, as soon as I started listening to the senior brokers and the training classes, I got rolling. It's not a get rich quick job- it's a grow your business job. LOVE the lifestyle- I work on my own schedule.LOVE the commissions- I support my family working with Vested Business Brokers...and I can't imagine doing anything else.
If there was a CON to my job it would be that since I work for myself, I have to keep myself motivated and keep on following my schedule. It takes focus to work for yourself - even with the Corporate Office behind you.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing Nathan and Marie - thanks for not giving up on late bloomers like me!

Great on family value. CEO & other higher level employees are very understanding when an employee has to take off all of a sudden due to family/personal issues. Great work environment in terms of "Playing Hard, Working Hard". Overall, I think the company is a great place to work at no matter the level of work experience one might have.
To Be honest, I cannot think of any Cons for this business.

Sounds like a dream job, work your own hours, make tons of money.. Free training , state of the art , free qualified leads,computer system what's not to like? Starts with an email offering this great sky is the limit job, a couple talks with a broker telling you how easy it is and before you know you are reeled in..
1st off you must plunk down your credit card and pay $100 per month at training and forever more after. Vested has gone on a recruitment binge and has fooled hundreds of would be brokers into paying this monthly fee until they wise up. If you done pay they cut you off the system and all your previous work is worthless. They take as much as 2/3 of the commission, promote the businesses of brokers they consider top producers and treat all others rudely. Furthermore they encourage a modicum of dishonesty when dealing with buyers and sellers..buyers also can only access information if they pay for it.

Marketing program, free marketing material
everything! you can only discuss your listings with buyers who pay for the information, which is crap! this is doing a disservice to sellers, they charge a rediculous monthly fee for brokers to work to work on their behalf, there commission is too high....which makes it a difficult sell, the take 50% of the commission, the listing manager submits listings when he feels like it.....barely speaks english, when you call the office, they make you feel like an idiot, or that you are bothering them, they only are concerned with their "top producers" theses are people who have mastered their scam.....
