The Colorado Association of Business Intermediaries is a non-profit trade association whose primary purpose is promoting education, professional standards and cooperative communication among Business Brokers and Intermediaries in the State of Colorado.  All of our Business Broker and Intermediary members are licensed Real Estate Brokers in the State of Colorado, to ensure a high standard of professionalism.

The practice of business brokerage, by its very nature, demands that a professional Business Broker and Intermediary possess an acumen for business operations and a respect for confidentiality well beyond that of non-business general practitioners in the residential and commercial real estate fields. Accordingly, you will find that many members possess credentials beyond a real estate license; they may also belong to other professional organizations, and they often obtain education in the special topics related to business brokerage.  Learn more about CABI at www.coloradobusinesses.com.
