BizBen ProSell Program - Selling A Business Assistance

BizBen ProSell Program

Selling a small to mid-sized business in California can be a difficult process for owners and intermediaries.  Statistics show that over 70% of all sellers never end up selling their business due to asking the wrong selling price or structuring a deal structure that doesn't make sense. Also not getting enough exposure to the right types of possible business buyers will surely limit the chances for a sale.

For over twenty years BizBen has provided advisory services to small business owners, brokers, agents, and intermediaries to help them locate the best possible buyer who can purchase their business, and provide resources and referrals to get their deal completed.

This program has had a high degree of success (90%) throughout the years and continues to provide the results sellers and intermediaries require in selling their California business to the right buyer for the right price and terms.
