About Texas Association of Business Brokers

Founded in 1979, Texas Association of Business Brokers (TABB) is the oldest business broker trade association in the country. We are a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization that is dedicated to improving the business brokerage profession for the benefit of our members and the general public. TABB is an affiliate of International Business Brokers Association (IBBA).


What We Do

We provide educational opportunities and promulgate forms that members can use in processing business sales. In addition, our organization provides networking events for brokerage professionals, buyers, sellers, and those who provide services related to business brokers and/or business owners. We pride ourselves on being the only broker trade organization to have such functions.


We have chapters in Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, and San Antonio.  Members include business brokers and business professionals who work with brokers and/or business owners, and/or are some how involved within a business transaction.  Brokers assist both sellers and buyers in business acquisitions.

TABB affiliate members, on the other hand, are individuals who work with business brokers and owners or those who are involved in the transaction of a business sale and/or lease assignment. This group is comprised of Commercial Real Estate Brokers, Lawyers, Financial Advisors, Private Equity Groups, Commercial/SBA Lenders, M&A Advisors, Accountants, Title and Insurance companies, Investors, etc.  Together, with our members, we focus on promoting the business brokerage industry and helping the success of entrepreneurs.
