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!

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
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
Found a pharmacy that matched my criteria thanks to your Buyer Outreach Program. Many Agents, Brokers, and some owners contacted me based on your service. Good way to get info out and get deals done!
- V. Singh - ProBuy Program
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
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.

- Matt T.- Landscape Co. Seller
We are in escrow now on the sale of the bowling alley/restaurant/bar we had advertised with you. We had an awesome response - over 1000 hits on our posting in your website, and we will definitly be using your services again to advertise our future businesses (resales) for sale.
- O. Mendez, Real Estate Agent
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
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!
- B. Frere - Owner, Salon & Spa
I got two inquiries for gas station sellers recently. They said they found my name on BizBen.com. I want to say BizBen is much more powerful than other business for sale related websites - I have done ad tracking and and know my response comes from your site! I can honestly say that selling car washes and gas stations is a lot easier these days utilzing your service - BizBen.com. Thanks and best regards.
- C. Chang, Broker
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
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
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
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!

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.

We have sold our business to someone who responded to our BizBen ad. Of all the places we advertised, BizBen generated the most responses by far. Thank you for all your help.
- Jim V. Business Owner, Seller
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.

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to express my total satisfaction with your GOLD Marketing Program for Business Brokers.
As a sole practitioner (currently) my brokerage business does not get the exposure that many of the larger houses generate so it is essential that my advertising gets results and draws attention to both my listings, and my brokerage. Of all the advertising I have utilized, NO ONE even comes close to the activity generated by your GOLD Marketing & Advertising Program.
As a former small business owner who believed strongly in effective advertising, I have found that the cost/benefit of your marketing program is clearly justified. While the cost is significantly higher than any other advertising I have done, the results show it is by far, the better investment.
Within the first 2 weeks of starting the marketing program with you, the results are 3 offers on 2 of the 10 businesses advertised and another one going into escrow!
I am now working long weeks to generate more listings as I have total confidence in my ability to sell them via the effective marketing & advertising with BizBen. You can certainly use my name as a very satisfied customer; just don't sign up any of my local competitors!
The difference to my bottom line will fantastic this year. Thanks again!
- R. Prinz, Business 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 . . .
