BizBen.com really works! I had my franchise listed with a local business broker in Solano county for 5 months and he only brought me 1 very soft lead during that period. After my contract expired with the broker, I listed my franchise with BizBen.com and in one week I had two interested buyers. Within a few more weeks I had a number of other intrested buyers and a signed contract for the sale of my franchise from the 1st person who contacted me via BizBen.com. If that wasn't enough the 2nd person who contacted me via BizBen.com ended up buying another franchisee's franchise. Don't make the same mistakes that I did. Start with BizBen.com 1st when selling your business!

I had been looking for San Francisco Bay Area small businesses to buy for the last 13 months, after Peter at BizBen got me connected in the BizBen ProBuy (Buyers Program) with the right settings in my MyAdmin Account on BizBen and sent my request and info to the right brokers, advisors, agents, and owners in my area (I am looking to buy a carpet cleaning or restoration business) I got an immediate response and felt like I could make an offer to buy a business.

The buyers went into escrow yesterday with our full price offer of $550,000! We are going to carry $50,000.00 at 8% interest for 48 months, and they are getting an SBA loan for the balance. I think they are excited about their new business venture and of course we are excited to have such an enthusiastic couple to pass our "baby" to. Thank you so much for your guidance and help, I will recommend the Fast Track Advertising/ProSell Program at BizBen.com to all our self-employed friends and relatives who may want to sell their business in the future!

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
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
I wanted to let you know that I have been successful in selling my business through BizBen. This was done in record time through your company. A business broker had my company listed for over six months and did not bring me any really serious buyers. The buyers who called from your website, however were plentiful and serious. I've actually referred several people to you because of my fast and successful results. Your FAST TRACK Advertising Program is wonderful. Thank you for your help and continued follow through.

Now I believe--I had heard about "hidden listings" in one of your ProBuy consultations for buyers concerning all the potential listings (off the market, potentially for sale) that are not advertised but are known about by intermediaries and advisors. So I am glad I "pushed" my information and wanted request out through the BizBen Network--with your ProBuy Program for buyesrs and got immediate responses and now in an offer to purchase one of these "hidden listings".

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.

My advertising posting (Electrical Splicing Contracting Business) sold to a Buyer, who one day started just searching for what's out on the market and found my listing on BizBen. C-10 license required, this sold for the asking price ($300,000.) Get this; the business is located in Tracy and the Buyer lives in Benicia and will be commuting! This was purchased using SBA, buyer injected $60,000 down . . .

We are in escrow now on the sale of the bowling alley/restaurant/bar we had advertised with you. We had an awesome response - over 1000 hits on our posting in your website, and we will definitly be using your services again to advertise our future businesses (resales) for sale.
- O. Mendez, Real Estate Agent
Thank you for your assisted buyers ProBuy program. Utilized this amazing program for business buyers to locate, and eventually buy a cafe restaurant in the San Fernando Valley. I was able to save my search requests and your Email Alerts for new postings added were great. Oh by the way the resources you also suggested - i.e. escrow and SBA loan lenders was very helpful.

I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all you and BizBen.com have done for me and my new career as a business broker. I do not advertise with anyone else and I do nothing to promote myself (other than ask for referrals) except the special Business Broker program I have with you. I don't need to. I'm into quality not quantity. I get between 5 to 15 calls a day from buyers on the 15 listings that I currently have, and receive numerous calls from business owners inquiring about my services. In fact I recently got a call from a business owner who saw my name in the Resource Directory on BizBen.com. He wanted to sell his nutritional supplement store. It didn't look like much when I saw it but it turned out to be the number one nutritional store in my area. To make it even better, the seller put all of his numbers on the books. I sold it in 2 weeks and made over $80K in commission because of your service! Thank you again as long as I have this career you will always be the company handling my business for sale advertising!
- Chris Lazuric, Business Broker
Recently put in 16 postings into your website to sell businesses and we have gotten an overwhelming response - hard to keep up with all the calls and emails . . . your program is well worth the price. We are very impressed, all your buyers are ready to buy! . . . very refreshing!

Since I own several gas stations here in Northern California I am always looking to purchase more. Your ProBuy Program is a must for those searching to buy a business. Before finding out about your program from an associate I felt like I was wasting alot of time making pointless phone calls--your program not only got me directed/focused but located some great gas station listings I would have never found on my own. Thanks.
- Robert K. - Gas Station Buyer
Incredible response, a ton of calls! Business buyers really see your media - great job, very impressive with your FAST TRACK Advertising Program - it's what you said it would be and more.
- D. Brown, Owner/Seller
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
Appreciate the the referrals and recommendations for SBA loan financing for my business deal I just completed, I could not have done this deal without it. Your Buyer's ProBuy Program is so worth it just for the resources alone. Just knowing I could qualify for a SBA Loan for a business purchase opened up many more potential acquisitions when I was searching. Also your recommendation to include a Buyer Profile and PFS Forms back with NDA's made me make look more credible with brokers/agents while searching. Will be referring your ProBuy Program to other potential buyers.
- T. Gartner - ProBuy Program
I am tickled to pieces with the response to the advertising I do with you in comparison to our advertising in the LA Times. We are on your 30 Listings - Line Advertising Program and the number of calls to the cost is so much better than the local papers! Our response to your advertising has increased our calls by 80%.
- Mike Nesh - Broker
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.
