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!

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!

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.

Yesterday we successfully completed the sale of our business, ACE Hardware, to the Duffy's from Ohio. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your efforts on our behalf. You made a daunting task look easy. We would highly recommend your site and services to any prospective business purchaser. The insight and guidance you provided throughout the entire process was invaluable.
- G. Duffy - ProSell Program
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 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%.

Today I advertised my business for sale as an owner (FSBO). Your website was super easy to use and resourceful. Within the first 20 minutes of the posting being placed I received 3 phone calls from interested party's! WOW! When I decided to sell my business, your website was the first place I turned. The tools & services you offer access to have provided me everything I need to feel comfortable in completing the transaction myself. I have been using BizBen as a guide for many years now. Infact, it was even a major resource for me when considering transitioning from being and employee, to owning a business. Your companies personalized attention is second to none and has given me even further confidence in moving forward! Thank you for creating this online platform, it is very much appreciated!

I am always on the outlook for additional coin laundries and your Buyers Program has proven itself. I have been contacted by numerous owners, agents, consultants from BizBen's network with quality leads on coin laundries for sale. I have also participated in some of the Coin Laundry Seminars you have available. Can't imagine why all buyers (and agents and brokers) wouldn't take advantage of this program.

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.

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.

Got to tell you at first I was disappointed when the BizBen Advisor (ProBuy Program) let me know that I would not qualify for an SBA Loan (my credit score is low, plus other items), but can't tell you how appreciate I am that we disccused other forms of financing options. Now when I am searching for a business I know what I can and can't afford and how to structure my deal properly. You saved me a ton of time.
- R. Lowes, Buyer, S. CA.
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.

Just wanted you to know how thrilled we are with the results of our FAST TRACK posting (ad) we have with you. After starting the ad only 3 weeks ago we have received over 18 emails, and over 44 phone calls - and now have 3 offers on our business, one for all CASH! Thanks for your great website - perfect for business owners who are looking to sell their business and got alot of results!

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

Peter at BizBen was a complete pleasure and professional from start to finish. Initially Peter previewed our financials and the business we were purchasing in order to give us a realistic approach on our ability to obtain financing for our desired purchase. Once Peter gave us the green light to move ahead, we were then referred to an SBA lender.
The first lender, approved us but for less than was needed to obtain the purchase. When that happened we thought we were out of the game. That was when Peter assured us that there would be a lender out there who wanted our loan and he recommended a 2nd lender. Sure enough, Peter was right. The 2ndlender approved us with exactly the terms we needed and it was the smoothest process ever
We had experienced a home loan refinance in the past year and it was 100 times harder than obtaining this SBA loan. Our purchase closed successfully at the end of May 2014 and we couldn’t have done it without Peter. He is experienced, reliable and his follow up and resources are key to keeping things moving along, leading to a successful finish.
We have been running the business for four successful months now and are very grateful for Peter’s help in making this happen!

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
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 got two inquiries for gas station sellers recently. They said they found my name on BizBen.com. I want to say BizBen is much more powerful than other business for sale related websites - I have done ad tracking and and know my response comes from your site! I can honestly say that selling car washes and gas stations is a lot easier these days utilzing your service - BizBen.com. Thanks and best regards.

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
Just sold the Oil Changing Business (full price offer!) we had advertised on your website - we utilized your FAST TRACK Advertising Program! In a little under 2 months I had a great response for this listing - over 17 emails, well over 60 phone calls, and over 1900 people who saw the ad on your website and in your media. I will definitly be doing more FAST TRACK Ads with you in the future!
