Experience, integrity, innovation


Performance Business Sales, is one of Australia’s most successful and innovative exponents of the sale and acquisition of privately-owned businesses.

Innovative too because we rely on the very latest business appraisal systems in order to establish a genuine market value that is acceptable to both parties.

Why innovative? Well at Performance Business Sales, we do things differently.

First we provide the option of utilising a unique and exclusive computer program to significantly reduce the amount of time and hassle involved in buying or selling a business. This specially-developed software package can cross-reference all the relevant business details in order to match purchasers and vendors in the most appropriate way.

All this results in a proven and remarkable success rate of 98% plus a reduction in the average time to sell or buy a business.’

Finding the business that's right for you


Buying a business is one of the most important decisions you'll ever make. There's also every chance that it will be one of the largest transactions you will ever negotiate in your lifetime. The financial stakes are extremely high and the difference between a good and a bad sale is counted in tens of thousands of dollars.

From the first meeting you will see our approach is different from other business brokers. You'll find our selected business listings are of a higher quality, and therefore reflect a lower risk, than those of our competitors. We achieve this by carefully targeting pre-selecting business types and then enter all relevant financial data from the business into our exclusive pre-appraisal computer program which helps to provide an accurate business price based on previous successful sales.

The Best Way To Buy Or Sell A Country Business


Minimum hassle. Best price. Less time. That’s the Performance Business Sales promise.


It won’t matter if you’re selling or buying a business in Mandurah, Bunbury, Busselton, Geralton, or Albany the Performance Business Sales System gives us a clear edge over our competitors. It also gives us access to a large number of qualified buyers who we know will suit your business.

Unlike most country Business Brokers, shouting from the rooftop, is far from our style. Instead our normal practice is to first determine the prospective buyer’s level of interest without revealing your company’s identity.

This “softly, softly” approach avoids bargain hunters, helps minimise disruption and maintains the highest level of security. It’s only when a buyer shows a proper level of interest that serious negotiations begin.

And although there is a possibility of selling your business to people living in the immediate locality, a bigger opportunity exists to gain access to the larger pool of PBS registered buyers residing in the capital cities. PBS has a growing number of registered buyers who wish to move away from the metropolitan area and buy a country business for lifestyle or semi retirement reasons.

The Facts
  • We realise that buyers and sellers seek three important criteria - confidentiality, a fast sale and a fair and equitable price.
  • The system is designed to protect the seller's confidentiality and all buyers must sign a deed of confidentiality prior to any details to help protect the business's details from reaching unauthorised people. This is especially important in the case of a small regional centre, where even the description of the business can sometimes reveal its identity.
