About Us | Chicago Business Broker

Chicago's leading business brokerage firm | 312-525-9622

Our Business Brokerage Firm

Playbook Advisory is a results-oriented business brokerage firm based in Chicago. Our experienced team works with companies ranging in size from $300,000 to $10,000,000 in annual revenues.

We provide both sell side and buy side representation for business owners in manufacturing, distribution, retail and business service industries.

Our business brokers will provide a full-service experience representing owners from start to finish or from initial listing to closing and everything in between.

 Experienced Advisory Professionals

The Company is led by Jim Peddle, who entered the industry in 2011 after a long career in mortgage banking.  With a successful track record as a business broker the past 8 years, Jim and his team have the experience necessary to help achieve your goals. Our firm is a proud member of the International Business Brokers Association, Inc. the largest association of business broker professionals in the United States. 

How We Are Different - Results Matter

We offer clients LOWER commission rates at Closing, an option for shorter listing commitments than the typical mandatory 12 months expected by other business broker companies in Chicago and more sensible legal documents that don't try to confuse clients. If you have to hire an attorney upon engagement consider it a red flag. Business owners should be able to completely understand their listing agreements without the need to hire a lawyer to edit their documents. We are your partner in this entire process, we guide you every step of this process.

By comparing us to the competition we are confident business owners will find us to be the best choice to represent you as your agent & business broker. You can reach Jim Peddle at 312-525-9622 or email president@playbookadvisory.com for a direct response to your inquiry.
