From shark diving to selling fish to helping business owners, Neal’s done it all!

Neal Isaacs, the owner of VR Business Brokers of the Triangle, started as a shark diver at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies in Gatlinburg, TN before moving to the Triangle in 2003 to open a retail business to “sell Nemo and Dory.”

In 2008, Neal sold his business to focus on business-to-business transactions and earned his MBA at NC State in 2011.

During the sale of his business, he discovered a passion for business brokerage. Neal is the Managing Partner of VR Business Brokers of the Triangle, the local representation of the International VR Business Brokers | Mergers & Acquisitions.

Today, he helps small business owners all across the Triangle take the next step in their entrepreneurial journey.

(502) 472-8231 | Anthony@VRbizTriangle.com

A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Anthony received his Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science in 2005 and Masters in Public Administration from Kentucky State University.

He got his first introduction in business after managing his father’s condominiums for a few years starting in 2006 where he took the properties from a negative cash flow and turned the business around into a profitable business. He then became involved in buying his own properties and has bought, sold, and managed commercial and residential investment properties for the last ten years.

He has a passion for helping people in the business realm and being transparent in what he can do to help them move onto new challenges and stages of their life. He met Neal when inquiring about a business and decided it would be great to be part of the VR team and help other people sell their businesses.
