online business agent

Who we are

In 1997 and at a cost in excess of $1.5 million, Graham Nankivell and Russell Lyon, two of Western Australia's most successful business brokers with over 50 years combined experience in the industry started developing a business sales system to minimise risk and simplify the process of selling businesses.

The system was initially developed, tried and proven in our own business broking office - Performance Business Sales (pbsbusiness.com.au). The system was then branded "Performance Business Sales System" (PBSS) who have licensed Online Business Agent to manage the marketing of the system throughout Australia and New Zealand.

In combination with the best business sales system available and using high quality business information reports we quickly found businesses sold faster, for a better price and with low risk. Because our system has dramatically reduced the time it takes to sell a business, we usually only ask for a 45 day exclusive agency on businesses listed for sale.
