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
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
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
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
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
I just sold my business thanks to one of your buyers, please take my ad out of the system since I'am still getting bombarded with calls and emails/messages about it - it's great but know that it's sold I don't need the calls. I have received approximately 10 calls a day on my business for sale ad with you guys . . .
- Susie - Owner/Marin County
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
Thanks for all your help in getting my request to buy a small Sacramento area business and the type of business I am looking for - liquor store or gas station to the right sellers and brokers. Saving me alot of time - BizBen's Buyer Services got me the information I just couldn't find any place else.
- R. Kennedy - 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
Just added 14 business for sale ads to your website 5 days ago and wanted you to know I am getting slammed with results - wow you were right the response is excellent! Please change my telephone number in the posting from my cell phone to my office phone since I'am getting so many calls . . .
- Nick Fahed - Agent
Your information on SBA loans and financing saved me alot of time and effort. Now I understand how to structure my deal with potential sellers - or agents in the future. Without your guidance and BizBen settings I would probably not be buying a business.
- J. Kim, Buyer, Carlsbad
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
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
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
Now I believe--I had heard about "hidden listings" in one of your ProBuy consultations for buyers concerning all the potential listings (off the market, potentially for sale) that are not advertised but are known about by intermediaries and advisors. So I am glad I "pushed" my information and wanted request out through the BizBen Network--with your ProBuy Program for buyesrs and got immediate responses and now in an offer to purchase one of these "hidden listings".
- B. Khamkar - Buyer, San Diego
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
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
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
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
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.
