About Us

About Deal Studio

Deal Studio was launched as an arm of BBP in 2011 by BBP President, Ron West. Since its launch, the goal of Deal Studio has been to offer the best in marketing, CRM and other related services exclusively to business brokers.
We constantly survey the profession to keep the industry informed of trends, developments, and policies. Over the years, this effort has led to our company establishing industry standards, principles, and practices that define business brokerage. In addition, more intermediaries have entered the industry through Business Brokerage Press than through any other door available.
