Meet Thomas P. Brubaker

Licensed Real Estate Broker  |  Appraiser, State Certified #RD2130

TAMBAY Mergers & Acquisition is Florida’s premier M&A Firm with highly experienced experts working as a team to get your business sold. What sets us apart from other firms is our valuation skills, to accurately determine the value of your business. Our team approach is proven highly successful, as each team member employs individual strengths to get you to close without stress. We do the heavy lifting.

Our President Tom Brubaker started in 1990 as an appraiser, owned Tampa Bay Appraisal for 16 years, founded a commercial real estate brokerage, and then founded TAMBAY Mergers & Acquisitions. It took 33 years of complimentary experiences to get where I am today, which benefits you in the sale of your business. In my 33 years, I have never met anyone with my level of experience”.

Our firm’s focus is on the lower-middle market, attracting strategic buyers looking to grow through acquisition, and private equity buyers for the middle to upper market businesses. Although we are highly competent to sell all business types, our focus is on industrial related businesses, and medical.
