Selling Texas Companies Since 1974.  

Bringing Buyers and Sellers Together from Around the World



Our team has over 230 years of collective experience and has closed transactions in excess of one billion dollars in revenues. Since 1974, our track record of successful, positive results has solidified our reputation as an industry leader in Texas and across the U.S.



With headquarters in Houston, CBB is the largest brokerage firm in Texas and one of the oldest and largest firms in the country. We are a founding member of the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA) and the Texas Association of Business Brokers (TABB).


Clients benefit from our history of getting deals done. We have sold several thousand privately-held companies for clients in every industry sector. Selling or buying a business demands the highest professional standards. Our documented history that spans almost four decades is built on performance, ethics, expertise, process-oriented methodology and confidentiality. Our day-to-day operations are guided by these practices—which are the keys to our continued success.

Whether you are selling or buying a business, find out how you can leverage our success to achieve YOUR goals.


Our team of M&A Intermediaries have successfully closed M&A transactions in the manufacturing, wholesale / distribution, energy, and service sectors. If you are considering buying or selling a company now or in the near future, contact Frank Stabler, CEO of our firm, to discuss how our expertise can help you achieve your objectives. Private company Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) transactions are larger and more complex than general business brokerage transactions. The buyers in M&A deals are typically Private Equity Groups (PEGS) or corporate acquirers rather than individuals. CBB utilizes a carefully orchestrated process to bring sophisticated buyers to the table that will maximize the value to the seller.
