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.

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
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.

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!

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
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
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.

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
I had been looking for San Francisco Bay Area small businesses to buy for the last 13 months, after Peter at BizBen got me connected in the BizBen ProBuy (Buyers Program) with the right settings in my MyAdmin Account on BizBen and sent my request and info to the right brokers, advisors, agents, and owners in my area (I am looking to buy a carpet cleaning or restoration business) I got an immediate response and felt like I could make an offer to buy a business.
- A. Siddiqi - Business Buyer
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".

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
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
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
I sold my business from your service. I would recommend your service to any business owner who was thinking of selling their business. We are still getting tons of calls even after it has sold!! Appreciate all you have done.
- N. Abousoud - Owner/Seller
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
After only one week of putting our FAST TRACK Ad in your website we have had over 600 people look at our ad online (thanks to the stats you provide your advertisers!), have received over 22 emaails, 55 phone calls and more coming in everyday. We are reaching targeted buyers with your website and they are bidding up the purchase price due to the supply of great buyers! We are very impressed and have told some of our other self employed friends about your incredible system of selling businesses!

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!
- Eric & Sheila Feddema, Business Buyers
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
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.
