They usually work for and are compensated by the seller though some brokers do represent the buyer. Some states even allow for dual agency (representation). ASK the business broker who he or she represents.

A good business broker represents the seller from buyer qualification till the closing. The business owner can run his or her business while the business broker manages the entire sales process.
A good business broker is like a sports referee who does a great job – nobody knows he or she is there. The same can be said for a good business broker – they work in the shadows and nobody knows that the business is for sale or sold.
Business brokers are needed to protect the integrity of a business for sale transaction. Confidentiality is the KEY COMPONENT. A good business broker not only finds and brings in qualified buyers but he or she is also an expert at taking the process from offer to closing.
