About Us

iStock_business-meetThe dedicated group of professionals and advisors at Calder Associates works together to ensure you gain the most from your selling or buying efforts. We possess years of professional and practical experience that allows us to provide a core group of services that far exceed current expectations of professionals in the brokerage industry. Members of our team have owned their own businesses, understand how to sell and buy a business, and most importantly, know how to satisfy the human side of each transaction.

Since our inception in 2002, we have dedicated ourselves to providing quality services that educate you in the complex process of selling or buying a business. We dedicate ourselves to YOUR needs!

From our corporate office in central New Jersey to our regional offices located in eastern Pennsylvania and northern Virginia, we work with clients from around the USA and Canada, and service selling companies primarily in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC.

We commit ourselves to yearly professional education in order to make sure that current financial, tax and operational alternatives are always provided for your consideration.


Our brokers are certified in areas such as business brokerage, mergers and acquisitions, accounting and law. We have experience dealing with service-based businesses, manufacturing companies, small entrepreneurial startups, management consulting giants, and even large conglomerates. With this vast range of experience, we offer a unique perspective in assisting the business owner with preparing a business for sale, or the buyer with analyzing one for acquisition.

Due to our success, we have been able to maintain a core list of qualified buyers who know that our confidential services provide them the best way to find businesses that meet their needs. Having billions of dollars in capital available, these qualified buyers know that Calder Associates understands the process of buying a business and will not waste their time or money.
