About BBU

Sunbelt Business Brokers was founded in 1979, operating as a single office in Charleston, South Carolina. Soon after, Ed Pendarvis brought his business model for success, growing the company into the world's largest business brokerage network with over 300 offices in the US and 30 foreign countries.

Ed has been responsible for the sale of literally thousands of businesses, helping countless individuals achieve their goal of independence and financial freedom. And now he wants to bring his knowledge to business buyers who have been underserved for too many years.

Now, BUSINESS BUYERS UNIVERSITY is the culmination of a dream; founded on the principals that grew Sunbelt into a powerhouse - a strong belief and great respect for small business ownership, the ability to forge a bond of trust between buyer and seller and the strong desire to help improve the quality of life for anyone desiring to make a change for the better by owning your own business.

Ed is an active member of the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA) and served on its board of directors. In addition, he is a certified instructor in "Introduction to Business Brokerage", "Marketing", "Recasting Financial Statements", "Pricing of Businesses" (Level 1 & 2) and "Financing the Sale of a Business".
