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
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 am always on the outlook for additional coin laundries and your Buyers Program has proven itself. I have been contacted by numerous owners, agents, consultants from BizBen's network with quality leads on coin laundries for sale. I have also participated in some of the Coin Laundry Seminars you have available. Can't imagine why all buyers (and agents and brokers) wouldn't take advantage of this program.

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.

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.

Getting a better response in my advertising with you than the LA Times . . . I get alot of response to my advertising and have told all of my friends about your services . . . I also like searching the businesses for sale on your website - your interface is so easy to use.
- Martin Dibbini - Agent
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
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!

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!
- C. Lopez - Owner/Seller
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 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
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
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
Thank you so much for your expert advise and great service that helped me sell our business quickly and without any hassles. I will absolutely use your service again and recommend it to any one buying or selling a business. Just another happy customer, Todd Armstrong.
- Todd A. - Owner/Seller
Thanks ....I SOLD this business a couple of days ago ..... thanks to your site... I had about 15 hits and just as many offers....thanks again!
- Matt T.- Landscape Co. Seller
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
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
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 couldnâ€™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 Peterâ€™s help in making this happen!
- Eric & Sheila Feddema, Business Buyers
We just opened escrow on the last company I had listed. The source of the buyers for every business we have sold in the last 3 years, has been from our business for sale ads listed on BizBen.com! Thank you.
- Phil Sabol - Business Broker
Your BizBen web site is producing strong responses to our ads especially our Fast Track postings. Thank you very much.
