BizBen Testimonials

Just wanted to let you know, our business just closed escrow and the buyer came to us from BizBen. Thanks for the service!
- N. Dunlap - Owner/Seller

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 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

We sold our cafe due to the advertising in your website! In a little over one month time we received over 10 emails, 24 phone calls and over 722 buyers who checked out our businesses for sale on your website! I recommend your site highly to all my business owner friends to sell their business . . .
- R. Ayyuub - Owner/Seller

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

Getting a better response in my advertising with you than the LA Times . . . I get alot of response to my advertising and have told all of my friends about your services . . . I also like searching the businesses for sale on your website - your interface is so easy to use.
- Martin Dibbini - Agent

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

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!
- C. Lopez - Owner/Seller

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!
- S. Buck - 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!
- Sharon Hills - Agent

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

Having sold businesses for 22 years, I have found BizBen to be the best value in responses. With a few minor exceptions I have not had to use other advertising media in the last year. It appears that many seasoned buyers use BizBen.
- Bill Bruno, Business Broker

Sold our coffee shop in Seal Beach the first day it was on your internet site! Thought others should know.
- L. Davidson - Seller
