Our History

Who we are, and why you should choose Aldes

Aldes Business Brokers is a firm of franchised business brokers assisting sellers of medium to small businesses to find suitable buyers. From small beginnings in Durban in 1979 we have grown to more than 50 outlets across South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe. Our success over the years has gone hand in hand with our determination to improve the professionalism of both our brokers and the business broking industry as a whole. Our service orientated approach has ensured that we remained at the forefront of the business broking industry in Southern Africa for the past 32 years.

Aldes Business Brokers is registered with the Estate Agency Affairs Board as the regulatory body for the industry. Apart from all our brokers complying to the Estate Agency Affairs Board’s code of conduct they also complete our own in house Business Broking Training. With our brokers stemming from various backgrounds and experience the collective result is a business brokerage group with a vast amount of knowledge providing excellent service to our clients.

Our biggest competitive advantage is the use of a single database for all our clients, both sellers and buyers. This means that the prospective buyer needs only to talk to one broker to find the perfect business/opportunity he seeks.

In 2010 the franchise operation was taken over by Ferdie van Greunen who has been with the group as a successful franchisee from its earliest days.

If you are looking to buy or sell a business we will be able to assist in all its aspects.
