The Proactive Philosophy


Being Proactive means leaving nothing to chance. We strongly believe that every business transaction needs a strategy and “hope” is not a strategy.

We advocate taking pre-emptive action against potential problems and threats that may occur in the sales process solving problems before they occur.


Don’t expect to find a Proactive Business Broker sitting behind a desk in an office waiting for the phone to ring, we will be out and about making deals happen.

We are licensed Business Brokers (Real Estate Agents) in both Queensland and Victoria. Our primary areas of focus are the Melbourne (VIC), Sunshine Coast (QLD) and Toowoomba (QLD) where our team members currently reside.


We embrace technology which is our most important tool to increase the exposure we can give to our seller’s businesses. Our reach extends far beyond our existing databases through intelligence-based direct marketing utilizing platforms such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
