Five Star Business Broker is owned and operated by its principal broker, Martin Berliant. Starting in the depths of the Great Recession of 2008/2009, Martin has worked full time as a business broker in the Palm Beach County area. During that time, he has seen it all…Martin has evaluated, listed, and sold every sort of business imaginable, all while building up a second to none database of buyers. Five Star Business Brokers is the culmination of Martin’s belief that every client matters, and was created to serve a unique niche where you as the client can receive the same sort of professional service of bigger firms, but without some of the bureaucratic impediments.
Originally from Milwaukee, Martin brings mid-western values, honesty, common sense, and a strong work ethic to every transaction. No matter if our clients are a large chain or a mom and pop bagel shop down the street, each and every client receives Martin’s full attention and complete devotion. Martin’s legal background provides him with a sharp eye for details, protecting his clients’ interests in all aspects of the deal. Martin also possesses a real life business background; as he started, owned, and operated a successful medical service company with locations throughout the Palm Beach County area. Martin’s difficulty in finding the right business broker for his own business many years ago led him to become one himself! Martin received an Economics Degree from the University of Wisconsin (graduating Phi Beta Kappa) and attended University of Georgia School of Law before delving into the business world. Martin, his beautiful wife Cyndie, and their growing family enjoy an active lifestyle in the beautiful West Palm Beach area.
