What our clients say:

"Highly Recommend. Very Professional. Jim works tirelessly to see a transaction to completion."

Tim Ozanne, Firethorn Capital

Trust Pilot Review

Jim did a great job selling my business. He has a hands on approach and doesn't push the work off to others like most business brokers. Jim and I had great ongoing communication regarding the process and status of the deal throughout. Within about 30 days I had the first offer and we closed with the first offer buyer rather quickly. I highly recommend Jim to anyone looking to sell their business.

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 $10mm. We provide both sell side and buy side representation for business owners in manufacturing, distribution. retail and service industries.

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.
