March 30th Co-brokering Summit Event with

Jim Parker & Randy Bring

As the pandemic broke in spring of 2020, many of us in the business brokerage/ intermediary fields discovered an experienced ally hailing from Florida with a YouTube broadcast that shined some light on how the pandemic was affecting the business brokerage M&A advisory industry. Jim Parker, President of Boss Group International, former State Chairman of the BBF (Business Brokers of Florida) who sits on the 2022 IBBA Board of Governors leadership team, will be flying into Cleveland to speak to NOBBA about the tricky subject of co-brokering. 

After Jim discussed this event with IBBA's new Board of Governors Chair Randy Bring of Transworld Business Advisors, Randy decided he would  like to join us as well!  These two will be facilitating a discussion of the subject of co-brokering in the state of Ohio.  This is a subject that these two are very passionate about and our goal will be to begin a dialogue here in Ohio as to how co-brokering could be approached.

As you know, the state does not regulate business brokers via Ohio’s Division of Real Estate Licensing so co-brokering is quite different in the state of Florida where these two gentlemen are from.  Let’s take some time to explore this issue and to hear from a couple of experts on the subject.

James Parker is Founder and President of Boss Group International and State Representative At Large of the Business Brokers of Florida. He has a passion for helping people realize the dream of business ownership. James believes in doing what’s right – every time.   As a veteran in the industry, he promotes his beliefs through the time he contributes to helping other business brokers. James has created a successful YouTube Channel as a platform to teach and discus current topics that matter to business brokers worldwide enlisting the industry’s most forward-thinking professionals.
