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 . . .

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!
- B. Frere - Owner, Salon & Spa
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
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.

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
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
Thank you so much for posting my ad so promptly. I got two phone calls yesterday, and three this morning! I am so happy that I went with BizBen.com for the sale of my business.
- Le Anne - Spa Owner/Seller
You got me set up on the ProBuy Program on BizBen and am glad you did. Searching to find a business became much easier. I have dialed in on several listings and I really like the way you can SAVE them and take notes on every single posting and post on your site! No more trying to find them after the fact. Appreciate your service - more buyers should sign up for your ProBuy services.

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
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 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%.

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!

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.

Thanks for your services for selling our ice cream franchise. It was not only effective but quite a value!
- R. Goldstein, Coldstone Owner
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!
- Tony Moran, Business Broker
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
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.
- E. Hull - Buyer: ProBuy Program
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.

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 ...
