There are significant resources available to help brokers build our businesses by strengthening / leveraging relationships, creating efficiencies, improving ourselves and our processes, treating our clients like gold …. but no resources available for determining how to go about buying a book of business, let alone how to prepare yourself and your business if you decide to make the leap and take over another broker’s business.
