About Us

Destin Business Brokers was established in 1999 by Ted and Debra Perkins. The Business brokerage is focused on providing exceptional service for entrepreneurs desiring to buy or sell a business along the Gulf Coast. Destin Business Brokers became so successful that Ted opened other associate offices in South Walton and Panama City to provide that same quality service to buyer and sellers of businesses along the Gulf Coast.
The Perkins’ motivation over 20 years ago to enter the local Business Broker industry was due to the lack of a step by step, simple process that they personally experienced when selling one of their own businesses. Drawing on their business and entrepreneurial experiences, they realized there had to be a better process to create a stress free, win-win process for business buyers and sellers.
Hence the birth of Destin Business Brokers and its affiliated offices South Walton Business Brokers and Panama City Business Brokers, which have consistently been the premier leaders along the Northwest Florida area from Pensacola to Apalachicola. Prior to founding the company, Ted, as a lifelong entrepreneur, has started, purchased and/or operated numerous businesses within the Destin area of Florida for over 40 years. He has owned and operated many other diverse businesses, and during that time has gained the knowledge and experience necessary to assist and guide buyers and sellers of business from the beginning analysis and valuation to the final closing of a purchase and sale transaction of businesses. Ted’s longevity in the local market allows him to deliver his clients a keen sense of the flavor and growth that is occurring and how to position local businesses for success.

Since that initial start up, Ted’s business brokerage and his professional staff of other licensed Business Broker Associates, have represented thousands of buyers and sellers worth hundreds of millions of dollars in transaction value.
