Barker Childcare Sales is the brainchild of Brett Barker after he identified a very real need for an ethical, specialised childcare business sales service. Barker Childcare Sales is a part of Barker Business Brokerage, a family run boutique business brokerage which started in 2007 and has been operating successfully all this time, offering honest and up front business sales expertise.

Although we are based in Auckland, we list and sell nationwide as we have a solid database of buyers sprinkled all over NZ.

In a nutshell, our goal is to ensure you receive the most comprehensive and seamless service available, from the initial enquiry right through to completion. And remember, we work for you, the seller, and we'll bring you the best offer, not just the first offer to ensure you get the best result.

Selling your childcare centre is a big decision, we know how tied many owners are to the children and families who attend, your staff and relationships forged over the years. We will work with you and a new owner to negotiate a handover period because we know you'll want to see your centre succeed long after you've exited.

You can also have confidence that our team of highly skilled Brokers know what they are doing when it comes to childcare sales. As you can see from our Meet the Team Page, we only employ highly skilled professionals, many of which have either owned or have had comprehensive experience in selling ECEs.

Because we love celebrating success, we'd also like to mention that Barker Business Brokerage was the WINNER of the 2019, 17, 16 & 15 REINZ Awards for Excellence "Medium Business Broking Office of the Year" as well as the 2017 WINNER of Small Agency across all disciplines.
