BizBen Testimonials

I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how grateful I am to be a part of the BizBen Service. I have successfully sold businesses since 1991, but I must credit my success to BizBen. I have tried many other types of advertising including the Sacramento Bee, BizQuest, Graigs List, mailers, etc. The only advertising that actually works is BizBen. I can honestly tell you that 100% of all my sales, have been from buyer response on BizBen.
- Marcie Honkanen - Broker

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 . . .
- John Irvine, 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 just want to take this opportunity to thank for not only providing a highly effective way of advertising our listings but also the exceptional personalized service I received. Your Fast Track Ad Program has produced more calls than I can handle. I expect to have a purchase and sale agreement executed this week, after only 10 days of using the program! Thank you again.
- K. Westberg, Fast Track User

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

Long time to write - just to update you (in case you didn't know), escrow closed, very satisfactorily I might add. Thanks for all your input. It's is such a pleasure to meet and do business with someone who actually does what they say they are going to do. Again, thanks, and best wishes for the future.
- L. Smith - ProSell Client

Thanks for your services for selling our ice cream franchise. It was not only effective but quite a value!
- R. Goldstein, Coldstone Owner

Finding the right car wash, gas station, or c-store in my area was taking forever until I contacted BizBen and became part of the BizBen's ProBuy Program. Appreciate you putting me in touch with brokers and agents in my area who have current car listings and have sold them in the past. Looking forward to your upcoming online webinars connected to buying small businesses.
- J. Lee - Buyer, Inland Empire

When my partner and I decided to sell our business, we began to search the web for more information on the process. Once we found BizBen.com website, we found a wealth of information that helped us to understand the process that has already been put in place to help business owners sell their business. No other service/website compares to the wealth of knowledge and source of qualified buyers BizBen.com website offers. We had no need to look any further to meet our goal!
- Monica Daniels - Owner/Seller

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

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

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

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

I wanted to take a moment and tell you about the incredible response I have recieved from the posting (ad) I placed on BizBen. To date I have recieved over 150 inquires from your website compared to about 10 inquires from several ads I've placed in the L.A Times, U.S.A. Today, and several other publications. I also want to thank you for the help and advice you have given me; concerning the sale of my business, the SBA loan process, and for helping me pre-qualify my business and buyers for an SBA loan in your ProSell Program. You are always avalible and easy to reach which is a rareity in todays business world. I would highly recommend you and your services to anyone planning to sell or buy a business in California.
- J. Johnson - ProSell Program

The Fast Track Advertising program is great. In two days I've received five requests for additional information. All the potential buyers appear very interested!
- Art - Broker, Walnut Creek

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

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to express my total satisfaction with your GOLD Marketing Program for Business Brokers. As a sole practitioner (currently) my brokerage business does not get the exposure that many of the larger houses generate so it is essential that my advertising gets results and draws attention to both my listings, and my brokerage. Of all the advertising I have utilized, NO ONE even comes close to the activity generated by your GOLD Marketing & Advertising Program. As a former small business owner who believed strongly in effective advertising, I have found that the cost/benefit of your marketing program is clearly justified. While the cost is significantly higher than any other advertising I have done, the results show it is by far, the better investment. Within the first 2 weeks of starting the marketing program with you, the results are 3 offers on 2 of the 10 businesses advertised and another one going into escrow! I am now working long weeks to generate more listings as I have total confidence in my ability to sell them via the effective marketing & advertising with BizBen. You can certainly use my name as a very satisfied customer; just don't sign up any of my local competitors! The difference to my bottom line will fantastic this year. Thanks again!
- R. Prinz, Business Broker

I am going nuts with all the calls from BizBen.com! The business buyers that come from the calls are high quality and I have sold several businesses so far and have another in escrow because of your website. We have also gotten several listings from your service - it's amazing how many sellers look at your website too. I love your service, thanks again and God bless.
- David Duran - Agent

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.
- P. Smith - Owner/Seller

The two forms you suggested (over the phone in the ProBuy Program) I include with confidentiality agreements going back to brokers and sellers have been helpful and saved me time in not having to explain my situation to dozens of owner representatives. Most appreciative, keep up the good work on BizBen.
- P. Damadyan - Buyer
