About Business Acquisitions LLC

Business Acquisitions, LLC ( BA ) formed in 2009 in Albuquerque, New Mexico to provide business brokerage services. Jim Eaton who had been in CPA firms for 35 years in Houston, Texas and recently had moved to Albuquerque. He began looking for a new business to buy and found that the representation that sellers were receiving was not of a high quality. He then decided to create Business Acquisitions to provide higher quality representation for both sellers and buyers. At Business Acquisitions our goal is to provide the highest quality of brokerage services to both the seller and the buyer of business by creating win-win transactions. Jim Hickey, joined the firm in early 2015 in Albuquerque. Due to family reasons he moved to mid-state New York where he had family and had gone to college. Instead of abandoning being a business broker it was decided to open an office in mid-state New York. Jim Hickey has been successful in closing transactions in New York and obtaining listings. In early 2016 Jim Eaton moved back to Houston to be closer to family and opened a Texas office for Business Acquisitions. In July 2016 Barbara Kline joined Business Acquisitions as a broker and is in charge of the New Mexico operations. All brokers with Business Acquisitions are required to obtained the Certified Business Broker designation and become members of the International Business Broker Association. BA requires that our brokers take continuing education classes every year to maintain and improve their proficiency as a business broker and to better serve our clients.
