Find out why Cathryn Austin from Best Business Buys Pty Ltd is Australia’s most respected and loved Business Broker.

Cathryn was the most caring, professional and diligent Broker over the 18-month period it took to sell my business.

My business is relatively small and very unique – a difficult business to sell.

Cathryn’s persistence in following through with any leads was more than admirable and she worked extremely hard over a long period of time for a comparatively small financial reward. 

She was most supportive at all times, and especially so during some very stressful periods over the 18-month period. 

I cannot recommend her more highly to you as a person with excellent skills and a good heart. She is totally trustworthy and honest and will look after you and your interests during the selling period of your business, be it small or large. 

Yours sincerely, 

Jill Bellchambers.

Dear Cathyrn,

Thank you so much for the beautiful gifts and the lovely card. What a beautiful surprise to arrive to these wonderful and thoughtful presents.

Thank you also for guiding me and helping us both through this process. You have been very patient and your advice very wise (particularly about solicitors!).

I hope when you have time and when you are in Canberra, you will let me take you and Jill to lunch.

I hope also that you had an enjoyable holiday – with no bad bug or bear stories to tell.

Thanks again, and please drop in soon or let me know a good day for a lunch.

To Cathryn Austin & staff,

I am so grateful to you for selling my business!!! Although not a speedy sale you kept persevering. You were very professional, also very approachable & worked tirelessly to the very end which made the whole transition possible.  I had personal reasons for wanting to sell, due to your experience, knowledge & persistence you secured the sale enabling me to move on with my life. I cannot praise or thank you enough & will not hesitate in recommending you to other vendors.

Kindest regards,

Estelle Greene – Goolgowi Road Hou

Cathryn and her team were contracted to sell our vineyard, winery and home.

Whilst we were initially sceptical about up the front cash commitment from us, once they had completed their initial approval of our business, Cathryn was always there and took personal interest in the business and the sale.

Our business was a unique family operated and relatively complicated operation, Cathryn was able to understand the business and to sell that to the buyers, this was instrumental in selling our business.

Aus International has been head and shoulders above any brokers I have dealt with in business sales. They are ahead of the game, pleasant to deal with and supportive in the sale of our business. I have been astonished by their large base of buyers of which they have both in Australia and overseas and their fees are less than any other I have dealt with. Don’t be nervous getting involved with Aus International, they are there to sell your business.

We cannot thank you enough for selling our business; your instant response to any queries and follow up calls was fantastic.  Your website certainly attracted a lot of enquiries; we were amazed at the response.

The communication between all parties was handed expertly and you returned phone calls very promptly.  I was grateful for your presence at the stocktake and for the follow up you did on some problems such as the lease issues and other legal matters.  In short we found your service exceptional and have already recommended you to other interested persons

Thank you for always returning calls (day or night), answering our questions and chasing solicitors!  There were many issues well beyond contracts and paper work that you dealt with on our behalf without a worry

North Coast Cranes

We engaged AUS International Business Brokers in April 2012 to list our business for sale and had our first enquiry within about 3 weeks of it being placed on the internet site and in their magazine. This first enquiry led to an offer within a couple of months (after financials etc. where audited), and then the eventual sale and settlement a couple of months after that.

Cathryn and her team where nothing short of professional through the whole process and in regular contact with updates and information as it came to hand. Most if not all of the legal and accounting aspects of the sale where negotiated by AUSIBB as well, leaving us free to concentrate on the day to day operation of our business, which is important as our monthly profit/loss was still being monitored by the purchaser throughout the sale process.

I would definitely engage AUSIBB if I had to go thru the same experience again, and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone considering listing their business for sale.


Scott Jackson – North Coast Cranes

Hello Cathryn,

Peter, Norman and I would like to thank you for the professional manner in which your Company Aus. International Business Brokers handled the sale of our business Wauchope Colonial Bakehouse.

From the initial contact we had with your business we were impressed with the confidential way in which the manner was handled. We were grateful that you screened all potential purchases before introducing us, saving us the unnecessary hassles of ‘Tyre kickers’.

Once a prospective buyer was introduced you kept us informed of all aspects of the sale. We were most grateful that you met with us and the buyers at our business premises on a Sunday to discuss the purchase, even though you had just undergone surgery and had to travel a long distance to attend the meeting.

We would be more than happy to recommend your services to our friends and colleagues should they be in need of a Business Broker.

Once again thank you for your great service, it is greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards – Denise Cahill

Shoalhaven Houseboats

Hello Cathryn, we are so happy and relieved that our business has sold and the deal has settled. Thank you for your unfailing help and support. We really appreciate your untiring efforts to find a buyer. Thank you for asking the hard questions to determine the integrity and financial capacity of potential buyers thus saving us from the many tyre kickers out there.

I do not believe I would have found the stamina to see the sale of this business to a happy ending. It has been our pleasure to do business with you and we have and will continue to recommend you to anyone who needs to sell a business. Thank you for the beautiful flowers, wine and chocolates, after we completed the settlement on my front verandah it was a pleasure to present the buyers with their flowers and wine from you. A lovely touch and a wonderful conclusion of the sale.

All the best Cathryn, stay in touch.

Lisa and Mark Patterson, former owners of Houseboats on Shoalhaven
