BizBen Testimonials

I had spent 4 months without success looking for a auto body shop in the Central Valley area. After just 3 weeks on your special program for buyers (ProBuy Program) I had multiple brokers and agents contact me with potential businesses I could purchase. Never thought it would work so well. Telling all my buyer friends about your special program.
- J. Anderson, Business Buyer

Getting a great response from our advertising in your media and have sold several businesses advertised with you. Your cost of advertising is less than any competitive media I have advertised businesses in ...
- Bill Reinis, Business Broker

Have gotten a tremendous response to my FAST TRACK Ad over the last month in your website - over 42 emails and 100 phone calls, very pleased with the results, now its just a matter of time before I sell my Ms. Fields/TCBY franchise!
- J. Bawany - Franchise Seller

We have received tons of response to our FAST TRACK Ad and have had several offers to purchase so far, thanks for the great program.
- Jim K., Business Owner/Seller

I would like to continue with the same restaurant for my primary fast track. That is the one I am trying to push the hardest. I must say, since you switched me to the new Silver Advertising Program for brokers & agents, the exposure has increased significantly and I am getting many more inquires than before. I can definitely see the difference. I am going to take some pictures of the featured restaurant and email them to you to include. Thanks very much for your help. I am very pleased with the initial results.
- Jeff Back, Restaurant Broker

I guess you know by now how much I love www.BizBen.com but today I am writing to you for another reason. Recently, you mentioned some benefits and features of the fast track advertising program. I did sign up for fast track for one of my better listings and I must say that you have a very impressive thing going. I got a very high volume of calls and e-mails because of this program. I got an offer in a week of listing the business and we are working on closing the deal. Infact, the phone still rings and I still keep getting e-mails. Thank you, Peter for running this awesome website! You are providing a huge service to the business brokerge fraternity. Do keep up the good work.
- R. Lahkar, Business Broker

We just opened escrow on the last company I had listed. The source of the buyers for every business we have sold in the last 3 years, has been from our business for sale ads listed on BizBen.com! Thank you.
- Phil Sabol - Business Broker

We sold our specialty business and currently expecting escrow to close with 10 days. Please close my account. I just want to say that I advertised this store in many places. The store is an internet gaming center, thus it is a specialty store and difficult for most people to have any interest in it primarily due to a lack of understanding. However, your website generated at least 300 to 1 leads over all other forms of advertising. Thank you for helping sell my store. One other note is that people like to use the phone versus sending an email. I may have received only 9 or 10 emails versus the 150 or so phone calls you site generated.
- Chuck K. - Owner, Seller

We have just completed the sale of our business, and want to thank you and BizBen for helping us to find a buyer who will continue our business and make it grow to even more of a success than it currently is. One of the things that clearly caught us by surprise was during the last, frenzied week of activity. The buyer decided to take over our studio 5 days sooner than expected, so we had to rush through things like making final arrangements with the landlord. The latter was great, but one thing that occurred to me was how delicate all the little parts that go into selling a business must fall into place for the whole thing to go through. There are issues of buyer financing, landlord negotiations, transfer of services like phones, websites, insurance, suppliers, etc. etc. If I had to do this all over again, I would have had a checklist available, and been prepared with all paperwork and phone numbers, ready to go.
- Valerie S. - Seller

Thank you so much for your expert advise and great service that helped me sell our business quickly and without any hassles. I will absolutely use your service again and recommend it to any one buying or selling a business. Just another happy customer, Todd Armstrong.
- Todd A. - Owner/Seller

Would use you guys again in a heartbeat! We had over 100 calls on our business for sale in BizBen.com and we were getting at least 3 calls a day until we just closed escrow this week. I heard about your service from another business owner, and I will tell other owners who want to sell about your services!
- M. Lottman, Seller/Owner

Over 80% of all of our inquiries come from BizBen.com. No other websites even come close to selling small businesses like yours does. Keep up the good work Peter!
- M. Carron - Restaurant Brokerage

After only one week of putting our FAST TRACK Ad in your website we have had over 600 people look at our ad online (thanks to the stats you provide your advertisers!), have received over 22 emaails, 55 phone calls and more coming in everyday. We are reaching targeted buyers with your website and they are bidding up the purchase price due to the supply of great buyers! We are very impressed and have told some of our other self employed friends about your incredible system of selling businesses!
- G&T Campbell - Owner/Sellers

I just sold my business thanks to one of your buyers, please take my ad out of the system since I'am still getting bombarded with calls and emails/messages about it - it's great but know that it's sold I don't need the calls. I have received approximately 10 calls a day on my business for sale ad with you guys . . .
- Susie - Owner/Marin County

I would like to thank you for providing a professional website for owners to list their businesses for sale. Since I listed my business in the Fast Track Advertising Program about a month ago, I have had several inquiries which I have qualified and have resulted in one serious buyer in escrow and one additional buyer in 2nd position. I have found this to be a fairly smooth transaction to this point. I would highly recommend to any owner considering selling their business to look into Fast Track Ad Program on BizBen.com and representing yourself. Who knows our business better than we do!!
- M. Stone - Fast Track User

We've taken a purchase offer from a serious buyer, and are finishing our diligence. This has been an interesting process, with so many people inquiring, most of them pretty serious. We ended up with three potential buyers, and three offers - all very similar in scope, and dollars. We decided to go with the person who was most passionate about our business, which we want to see survive. Of course, our deal isn't done yet, but it looks like it will finish within several days. BizBen's venue and your advice have been invaluable, and I would recommend your service unconditionally to anyone thinking about selling a business.
- Valerie Dodd, Owner/Seller

Listing below sold. Your business site hands down crushes all others. I have bought and sold 5 businesses through your site while advertising on many others. The others are not even close!
- Scott L. - Seller & Buyer

My daughter, Julie, and I operate as agents selling preschools in southern California. We have used your site for over a year now and our results have been nothing but, exceptional. We always receive a large numbers of responses from our ads on your site. Our sales have increased substantially, since we started using BizBen. We also use other websites monthly to advertise but I must tell you we receive a much smaller number of customers from these two sites. We consistently receive twice the number of leads from BizBen.com then we do from the other sites combined! Your site has helped us greatly - keep up the great work and thanks.
- A. Powers - PreSchool Broker

Your site is a favorite with us over 2 to 1 from the other business for sale website BizBuySell. We have sold 6 listings recently from your site vs. only 2 lisings on theirs. Your site is easier to use for business buyers and we like the number of calls we get from qualified business buyers.
- Remy Chen, Business Broker

VR Business Brokers, San Francisco office, serves small and mid-sized business owners and buyers in the San Francisco Greater Bay Area. We are part of a Network of Affiliated offices nationally and time and again, we heard from other VR franchise offices that one of the very best places to put our California business for sale listings on the web was BizBen.com. Well the results have and continue to surpass our expectations with the results often being 3 to 1 compared to other Business For Sale sites we use. In one recent Fast Track Ad in particular, within the first week we had a purchase offer on the table for one our largest listing. BizBen.com has now become a staple of our marketing and I highly recommend this key channel to buyers for other business brokers.
