Growing up in the eastern suburbs of Sydney and relocating to the ACT in the late 70s with his family, Baz had accumulated a wealth of knowledge in family owned businesses, as he worked after school helping his family business, whilst gaining an education. Upon completing his Business Management Diploma, he opened his first business (Deli/Café) in the ACT and from there began his own business portfolio including a Sports Bar, Bottle shop and Night Club just to name a few.
In 1995 Baz, his wife and 2 children, relocated to the Gold Coast, where he worked as a Business Broker for over 3 years, successfully bringing buyers and sellers together and sold over 40 businesses in that time.
In 1998, he purchased a cafe in Tedder Avenue, Main Beach, and successfully owned and operated 3 other various Restaurants/Cafes on the Gold Coast in the last 15 years. During this period he has also held various positions of Director / General Manager for a Wholesale/Manufacturing and Distribution companies working closely with the Hospitality industry. Many of these organisations required skills in business valuations; business process re-engineering, assessing risk management and value added analysis as well as long term strategic planning and Business Development.
His previous employment history, in the hospitality industry, has also included roles in human resources/customer service, directing and implementing education, training, organisational development, sales strategies, strategic process improvement, and talent management programs in business and years of experience as an account manager/marketing as a business development professional.
As a Business Specialist, one of the key strengths is his ability to use his extensive skills and experience in ANY industry/organisation and rapidly acquire knowledge to fulfil the desired outcome in selling your business.

We would recommend Baz Sanjakdar as a broker for anyone serious about selling a business on the Gold Coast.
His intimate knowledge of the local area teamed with his integrity and realistic approach ensured a smooth transition during the sale of our restaurant, and his empathy with all parties involved particularly appreciated.
Elise and Frank Maraia – Business Owners – Oct 2021
I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Baz for all his effort to ensure the sale of my business. After 15 years in operation, my husband and I decided to sell as we had approached retirement age. Finding a Business Broker we could trust was very important to us and we had no hesitation in contacting Baz.
During the process, Baz proved to be not only professional in his approach, but was also courteous, understanding, knowledgeable and extremely patient. He definitely went the extra mile for the purchasers assisting them with questions and queries to ensure the sale's success.
His marketing campaign resulted in the timely securing of the buyer and the management of the sale process was done in such a manner as to ensure settlement with both parties attaining the desired outcome.
I will certainly have no hesitation recommending Baz to anyone contemplating selling their business.
Thank you, Baz

Thank you for everything you have done to help us get there. We really appreciate all the hard work you did over and above your call of duty in negotiating with landlord to achieve the result we wanted.
David and Violet – Business Owners – September 2020
From our first contact, we found Baz to be very professional, knowledgeable, and engaging. His ability to understand the manner in which we wanted to sell the business and the time frame we had to work with. Baz filled us with trust and we always felt he was looking out for our best interest. He was very responsive to our questions and requirements, always responded in and outside business hours, nothing was a problem for him.
Baz did an outstanding job of negotiating with potential buyers, with the sale from start to settlement. Always positive and encouraging, even when potential sales fell through. We needed that positive attitude. We found Baz to be open, honest and hard working. We would recommend him very highly.
