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.
