The Toowoomba branch is part of the largest business broker network in Australia, with 55 brokers offices nationally. FBS Toowoomba Director Matt Noller says, he has worked with a diverse range of clients from $10,000 online businesses to multi-million dollar sales. After taking out the titles, Mr Noller insisted the success was due in part to the region and the experienced staff behind the company.
“Being regionally based, to pick up any awards is great when you’re up against the Sydney and Brisbane markets,” he says.
“Toowoomba and the Darling Downs is punching above its weight, there is so much going on in regional areas, but Toowoomba especially is attracting investors. People who live outside of Toowoomba are looking to move here, or they move from metro areas after seeing what the regions’ future holds in the next five to ten years.”
Projects like the Toowoomba Bypass, Inland Rail and the Wellcamp Airport are boosting confidence in the region. A registered CPA, Mr Noller worked as an accountant for 13 years before opening the FBS Toowoomba territory. He claims he works equally with sellers and investors.
“People are looking to invest in the region and find that next step for them and that’s where our network comes into it.”
“Most investors are not looking to buy themselves a job, what they are looking for is a larger concept… whether that’s having established staff or a business run completely under management. We work to build relationships, some of our clients may not be ready to sell for five years or longer, but we work together to develop ideas for them of how to maximise the outcome and achieve their business goals. We don’t see ourselves our salespeople, we work to get a fair deal for both parties. It’s not always a quick process, and can take anywhere from 9-12 months to find the right investor and sell a business.”
