I appreciate the great system you set up for business brokers to sell their listings so easily! We get a great source of our calls from buyers who come from your website - www.BizBen.com, in fact we have sold 11 businesses so far this year. Thanks!
- Keith Ryan - Business Broker
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.

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.

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!

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!

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
I would like to thank you for providing a professional website for owners to list their businesses for sale. Since I listed my business in the Fast Track Advertising Program about a month ago, I have had several inquiries which I have qualified and have resulted in one serious buyer in escrow and one additional buyer in 2nd position. I have found this to be a fairly smooth transaction to this point. I would highly recommend to any owner considering selling their business to look into Fast Track Ad Program on BizBen.com and representing yourself. Who knows our business better than we do!!
- M. Stone - Fast Track User
I had spent 4 months without success looking for a auto body shop in the Central Valley area. After just 3 weeks on your special program for buyers (ProBuy Program) I had multiple brokers and agents contact me with potential businesses I could purchase. Never thought it would work so well. Telling all my buyer friends about your special program.
- J. Anderson, Business Buyer
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
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
I have to tell you that BizBen.com has been the best advertising website for me and I will resume my business with your company, when I return from my family trip!

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.

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
You guys are keeping us really busy - very happy with the results of our advertising on BizBen.com. We easily get between 40-50 phone calls/emails a day on the ads we have advertised with you - car washes, gas stations and hotels/motels. Please increase the number of postings we have with you from 20 to 30 postings (program) immediately. Thank you.
- Earl Carson, S. CA Broker
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 . . .
- R. Ayyuub - Owner/Seller
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!
- L&L, Persson - Owner/Seller
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.
- Chuck K. - Owner, Seller
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
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
The Fast Track Advertising program is great. In two days I've received five requests for additional information. All the potential buyers appear very interested!
