Hurst Partners (previously trading as Hurst Business Brokers) was founded in 2001, with the integration of the businesses of Eastern Regional Business Brokers and Andrewartha Business Brokers. The business has drawn on the strong client service culture of Eastern Regional Business Brokers and the experience with large format retailers (typically with high stock value) of Andrewartha Business Brokers.

The business has delivered win/win outcomes for both business sellers and business buyers. This can be attributed to its commitment to provide a high level of customer service, focusing on understanding the requirements of individual business sellers and buyers, and attending to them personally.

Acknowledging the complexity and sensitivity of the business sales and acquisition process, business sellers and buyers can benefit from the industry exposure and transaction experience of our team of Business Brokers to successfully navigate the business sales and acquisition processes. Hurst Partners is an active member of the Business Brokers Chapter of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria, and the Australian Institute of Business Brokers. The firm is committed to continual professional development to provide the highest possible level of service to clients.
