Fifteen Georgia Business Brokers Named to Million Dollar Club

Despite economic turmoil, 15 members of the Georgia Association of Business Brokers (GABB) earned membership to the prestigious Million Dollar Club for 2008.

GABB’s Top Producer for 2008 was Jeffery E. Merry, owner and founder of the BUSINESS HOUSE, inc.SM

“Qualification for the GABB “Million Dollar Club” is a great achievement,” said GABB President Van Watkins. “In fact, it sets the Business Broker apart as being capable of successfully taking a complicated business transaction from listing to closing.
