Membership Information

Are you wondering about GABB and possible membership?

GABB has Business Broker members who are active in business brokerage, and Affiliate members who are active in industries that support the business brokerage process.  These include attorneys, CPAs, financial planners, lenders, appraisers, environmental experts, and more.

To become a broker member, you will need to be a practicing professional who has some demonstrated experience in business brokerage, and have a current active GA Real Estate License as required under GA Law. If you are not a business broker, but work with business brokers in some capacity, you are eligible for affiliate membership.

Here are just a few of the reasons why GABB Membership is a great idea:

Lifetime Learning . . .  Opportunities to learn and grow are a basic commitment of GABB.  Educational  and practical involvement programs are geared to various levels of experience: beginners who are about to take the first steps into business brokerage; experienced professionals who are seeking to keep their skills up-to-date;  old pros who are interested in learning the latest trends, tools, and techniques.  Some programs earn Real Estate Continuing Ed Credits as well.

Enhanced Productivity . . .  GABB provides access to the best tools and up-to-date information – such as standardized forms, a proprietary listings management and marketing system, comparative sales data, legislative watch, and PR support – ensuring  that GABB members can focus on their business goals and be the leading professionals in  their markets.

Effective Networking . . .  Informative monthly meetings, group social activities, conferences, a monthly newsletter, a membership  directory, and  working committees give all members the opportunity to contribute to GABB’s success, and forge bonds with brokers, as well as vital support professionals, such as lenders, attorneys, and  appraisers.

Recognition . . . Our GABB Today Newsletter and Public Relations Committee recognize your achievements and support your individual and company PR efforts.  Entrepreneur of the Year and Million Dollar Club  are among the  awards sponsored by GABB.

Ethical Commitment . . .  A promise to achieve our personal and professional goals through a dedication to quality, integrity and excellence is a cherished tenet of GABB. A common code of ethics  supported by a professional standards committee ensure that all members expressly share a high level of ethical standards in practice.

Value . . . High return on  your investment. Most of the benefits of GABB membership are available to brokers and  agents for an annual fee less than the cost of just one marketing or business reference tool alone.  Course and conference fees are kept to a minimum.  Associate members from auxiliary professions are welcome to join GABB and enrich their productive networks for the same small membership fee. For first-time GABB applicants, membership fees are are $250 for Brokers and $290 for Affiliate members.

GABB’s goal is to support and empower each and every
professional to be his or her very best …
