Broker Profile

Sells is an accomplished businesswoman with expertise and instinct for mergers and acquisitions. With over 200 transactions under her belt since 2010, she and her team at The Firm specialize in pairing the owners of existing businesses with qualified individuals who can continue the legacy of the business. In 2018 alone they brought 49 businesses to the closing table, which is a nationally recognized high. Sells leads a team of empowered professionals who share her passion for client services and helping buyers and sellers imagine their futures, whether that means retirement, change in industry, or simply acquiring a company to expand their personal wealth. The Firm works with businesses large and small, from the Middle Market to Main Street. If you’d like to pursue an exit from an existing company or would like to become a business owner without “starting from scratch”, Sells and her team would welcome the opportunity to meet with you. Prior to founding The Firm, Sells founded Agency 89, a talent agency which then became Nebraska’s first licensed talent school. She served as President until the agency’s acquisition in 2009. Among her professional affiliations are Vistage, a board member of Entrepreneur’s Organization Nebraska (EO), Rotary International and the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce. She also served on the board of Heartland Family Services and volunteers regularly for organizations such as The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, where she was a nominee for Woman of the Year, St. Patrick’s parish and is a mentor for the Transition Assistance Program at Offutt Air Force Base. Sells was named “Best of Omaha” Business Broker of the Year from 2011-2018. She is also the Editor of The Deal Review, a publication distributed to 21,000 business owners. Her accomplishments include cover stories in Midlands Business Journal, The Daily Record, Omaha Magazine, and features on Fox News and CBS’ Morning Blend. When away from the office, Cortney and her partner Adam enjoy active roles at St. Margaret Mary Catholic School, coaching their daughter Vienna’s soccer team and boating on the lake with their son Knoxx and three dogs.
