Brian Loring is Owner and Principal Broker for First Choice Business Brokers San Fernando Valley. As a broker since 2005, Brian has closed roughly $150 Million in business and commercial transactions throughout the U.S.
He is among the handful of professional intermediaries who've earned the professional designation as a Certified Business Broker through the California Association of Business Brokers. He carefully and confidentially sells fine businesses in the online, e-commerce, tech, manufacturing and entertainment industries. By focusing on these specific industry verticals, he is able to leverage key relationships which provide substantial value to his clients. The bulk of his transactions are with firms valued between $500,000 and $5 Million.
Brian has owned five small businesses and served in operations and production management with Fortune 500 companies. He brings substantial IT, server management and software support experience to his engagements. At CBS-TV in Studio City, he led the technical operations of a 130-person production staff and managed all training and support functions involving workstations, servers and video editors.
His background led him to specialize in working with e-commerce, online, software, IT and tech firms. He often assists these owners as a tenant rep, finding appropriate lease space in California's tight industrial and office markets.
He spent many years in commercial real estate, closing investment deals and lease transactions with NAI Capital, Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, Berkadia and other national firms. His background includes institutional multifamily sales, shopping center development, office and industrial leasing, asset and property management, plus single-family house flipping.
