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.

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
Just wanted to let you know, our business just closed escrow and the buyer came to us from BizBen. Thanks for the service!
- N. Dunlap - Owner/Seller
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
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
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!
- M. Carron - Restaurant Brokerage
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
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
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.
- A. Hammer - Owner/Seller
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.

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
Your BizBen web site is producing strong responses to our ads especially our Fast Track postings. Thank you very much.
- J. Atchinson, CBI - Broker
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
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
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
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!

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
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
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
Well, It looks like we are well on our way to a sale, thanks to BizBen! The upgrade to the Fast Track Ad Program really did the trick. Can you mark my ad as In Escrow. Thanks!
