BizBen Testimonials

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 . . .

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!

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

I want to express my sincere thanks and excitement about the amazing results I had from advertising on BizBen.com. I placed an ad on BizBen.com for the sale of my nautical retail shop in Northern California. Your site was the "only" advertising I did as I was on my way to Europe the next day. Upon my return 7 days later there were several emails from potential buyers requesting additional information regarding my business. In fact there were two people who I spoke with that wanted to meet me in the store. I did meet with one of the two buyers a couple weeks later. She and her husband made me an offer the following week and we closed soon after! I cannot say enough about how effective your website is. Everyone I speak with has marveled at the immediate response it generated and the 365 hits we had in less than 4 weeks. I was getting calls several days a week even up to the day we closed. I am pleased to share “our success story” with others. BizBen is for everyone who wants to market to the right clientele. It works.
- Sue M., Business Owner/Seller

You can take our ad out after 1 1/2 months - we just sold it to one of your viewers from the internet ad on BizBen.com. We received well over 40 phone calls and had over 600 people see it on your website (love the stats you give to advertisers on the website!) in that time period! Thanks again, please take off the ad since we have already sold it.
- A. Hammer - Owner/Seller

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

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

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

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

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

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.
- G. Arabian - 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

All potential business buyers should seek your services. WOW the things I didn't know. With your assistance and BizBen assistance with my ProBuy Program, I now find tons more listings I am interested in (and can probably finance with your guidance on SBA loans). When are you going to have more Buyer Webinars, I missed several last year but have the time now to participate?
- Pat Wang, Business Buyer

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

- Bill Reinis, 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!
- Sharon Hills - Agent

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

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

This is a thank you letter to you for the wonderful job you did in selling our business through your FAST TRACK Advertising Program. We were very happily suprised at the valuation you put on our business. We had no idea of the real worth. You brought us an extremely qualified buyer - in fact we had two full price offers for our business - thanks to your efforts and the FAST TRACK Advertising Program. We are so happy with the buyer, which we chose. He is so qualified, and is growing the business and taking it to the next level. As we discussed, this was like sending our "child (the business) to college. You are truely a professional. You not only valued the business, brought us qualified buyers (through the FAST TRACK Advertising Program) but also arranged for the financing. We are now enjoying the fruits of our 21 years in business, thanks to your efforts. We are very much enjoying our retirement. We have already referred friends in business to you so you can do for them what you did for us.
- M&L Anderson - Sellers

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!
