How Do You Become Successful within VR?
Some of the most successful owners in VR are people with entrepreneurial, business, or executive experience. However, several VR top performers had no previous business experience what-so-ever. VR is committed to work diligently with every Franchisee providing each person with the proper tools, training and mentoring needed to successfully compete within the industry. You'll find yourself in extremely good company as a well-trained Intermediary dealing with other like-minded professionals.

Financial Investment
A surprising number of entrepreneurs wait until the last moment to arrange financing. The fact that an acquirer needs money urgently makes no difference what-so-ever to financial institutions or investors. What they do care about is the credibility of the business plan and the character and commitment of the people applying.
An introduction from a VR professional business intermediary that the lender is sure to respect is the fastest way to many financing options. The surest way to count you among the elite is to get a personal introduction from your VR intermediary.

“In my second year as a VR office owner I was nominated as Most Valuable Intermediary. VR’s training and support got me off to a get start and it hasn’t slowed down since!”
- Steve Abdalla, VR Multiple Franchise Owner

“After selling my business I thought being a business broker looked interesting and maybe I would enjoy doing it.  I considered several options, in the end VR was the most professional, ethical, and the strongest team.  I bought my VR franchise, grew to 10 Associates in my office, and was able to sell the firm within 3 years for a very large profit.”

- Ray Barreth, VR Franchise Owner

“We have been with VR Business Brokers since 1982. Over the years our office has experienced tremendous growth and continues to be very successful. From the onset, VR became the industry leader in 1982 and continues to be the driving force in the industry. There are more options today when entering this industry, but VR is still clearly the marketplace where businesses are sold. If you are a seller, a buyer, or considering entering the industry VR is the only choice."

- William Park, VR Franchise Partner

“I really enjoy what I do, everyday I am working with business owners in variety of industries and new entrepreneurs looking for their first business. It is very satisfying to help both the owner and buyer achieve their goals. Closing a deal is a great feeling, and we get paid for it too!”
