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.

I wanted to let you know that I have been successful in selling my business through BizBen. This was done in record time through your company. A business broker had my company listed for over six months and did not bring me any really serious buyers. The buyers who called from your website, however were plentiful and serious. I've actually referred several people to you because of my fast and successful results. Your FAST TRACK Advertising Program is wonderful. Thank you for your help and continued follow through.

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 . . .

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
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!

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.

Recently put in 16 postings into your website to sell businesses and we have gotten an overwhelming response - hard to keep up with all the calls and emails . . . your program is well worth the price. We are very impressed, all your buyers are ready to buy! . . . very refreshing!
- Sharon Hills - Agent
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
I just want to take this opportunity to thank for not only providing a highly effective way of advertising our listings but also the exceptional personalized service I received. Your Fast Track Ad Program has produced more calls than I can handle. I expect to have a purchase and sale agreement executed this week, after only 10 days of using the program! Thank you again.

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
BizBen.com really works! I had my franchise listed with a local business broker in Solano county for 5 months and he only brought me 1 very soft lead during that period. After my contract expired with the broker, I listed my franchise with BizBen.com and in one week I had two interested buyers. Within a few more weeks I had a number of other intrested buyers and a signed contract for the sale of my franchise from the 1st person who contacted me via BizBen.com. If that wasn't enough the 2nd person who contacted me via BizBen.com ended up buying another franchisee's franchise. Don't make the same mistakes that I did. Start with BizBen.com 1st when selling your business!

Thanks for your help with the Fast Track Advertising Program, I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! We received tons of calls and emails and in less than a month we had a purchase offer. Just an overwhelming response to our posting!
- A. Thompson - Fast Track User
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
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
Got to tell you at first I was disappointed when the BizBen Advisor (ProBuy Program) let me know that I would not qualify for an SBA Loan (my credit score is low, plus other items), but can't tell you how appreciate I am that we disccused other forms of financing options. Now when I am searching for a business I know what I can and can't afford and how to structure my deal properly. You saved me a ton of time.
- R. Lowes, Buyer, S. CA.
Finding the right car wash, gas station, or c-store in my area was taking forever until I contacted BizBen and became part of the BizBen's ProBuy Program. Appreciate you putting me in touch with brokers and agents in my area who have current car listings and have sold them in the past. Looking forward to your upcoming online webinars connected to buying small businesses.
- J. Lee - Buyer, Inland Empire
I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how grateful I am to be a part of the BizBen Service. I have successfully sold businesses since 1991, but I must credit my success to BizBen. I have tried many other types of advertising including the Sacramento Bee, BizQuest, Graigs List, mailers, etc. The only advertising that actually works is BizBen. I can honestly tell you that 100% of all my sales, have been from buyer response on BizBen.
- Marcie Honkanen - Broker
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!
- Art - Broker, Walnut Creek
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.
- T. Gartner - ProBuy Program
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.
