Patience is a virtue, is it not? Well, we must confess that this particular virtue was not always employed by us during the sale process of our Website. You know how it is. You list your car, house or Website for sale and you expect it to be sold by tomorrow at the latest! Stay focused and it always happens; which is what the entire team at Website Properties did for us unwaveringly.
They do what brokers do on a daily basis -- advertisements, emails, directory listings, calls, follow-up, pursue -- all those things and much more that we, the customer, don't have a clue about. And especially we don't think about how much work all that takes just to make our site sell. The magic was continually done behind the curtain by four amazing people at Website Properties, Dave Fairley, Jeff Baird, Natalie Oliverio and Marlee Simmons.
To tell you that they were immediately available to respond to our questions, concerns, along with the myriads of questions by lawyers, accountants and buyers (especially buyers!), would be a gross understatement -- a factor that's quite important when a customer's impatience is breathing down their back.
Bottom line, just use them. They make it happen. In spades.

When it came time to sell my website I knew that I needed just the right buyer. Website Properties did an excellent job marketing my website and guiding me through a successful sale. They were able to match my site with an ideal buyer and I ended up very happy knowing that my site was going to continue on with a terrific new team.
I am extremely pleased with the service that I received from Website Properties. They sold all three of my websites within one day of publishing the listings. They not only provided quick sales, but I received fair prices for my properties and they were sold to well qualified buyers. All in all, an excellent experience. I strongly recommend Website Properties for anyone who is looking to sell their websites.

Website Properties did a stellar job with my business sale. The WP team was organized, efficient, and delivered on everything they said they would do. I found them consistently helpful, responsive, easy to reach with questions, and clearly invested in my success. The brokers acted diligently, from start to finish, as advisor and trusted partners. Their decade of experience, perspective, focus and tenacity were invaluable. They helped steer me quickly toward a serious buyer who was an excellent fit for my business, and the result was a positive outcome for all parties involved. In large part because of the efforts of the WP team, we had a rapid and smooth process from listing to close. They were with me every step of the way, and I can honestly say that I could not have done it without them. I believe that when it comes to e-biz sales, you will be hard pressed to find a more effective and experienced brokerage firm.

I feel that Website Properties did an outstanding job for John and me. You really helped me understand complex matters and I felt extremely comfortable throughout the process knowing that professionals were overseeing every intricacy and detail. There is no way I could have ever done this on my own! Thank you all again! I truly hope I can sell another website in the future using your assistance! You’ve all been extremely helpful and welcoming to me and John. Thank you!
After a couple years of having my online western gift store for sale with a traditional business broker, it simply occurred to me that, my gosh, I will bet there is a broker that specializes in e-commerce! From our first interaction, I have had nothing but the highest regard for Jeff and Natalie, the good folks at Website Properties. Jeff knows e-commerce inside and out. But, critically, he has a fantastic Rolodex of potential buyers. Yes, indeed, they were successful in getting my business sold to a good buyer in short order. But -- not to be discounted -- Jeff & Natalie were both perfect professionals throughout.
I came to Jeff and the team at Website Properties to sell three websites. Within one month I sold all three websites very close to my asking price. Jeff and his team are extremely professional and stay on top of the task at hand until it is completed. They also make it extremely easy by providing all the needed documentation. All I can say is that I will use Website Properties in the future and highly recommend them to everyone. http://howtoearnmoney101.com/

I reccomend Jeff and the team at Website Properties without reservation. He was professional, fair and aggressive at helping me find a suitable buyer for a venture that I wanted to divest of. He has a extremely strong command of the e-commerce space. He also helped to coach me through what can be a very taxing and difficult process. Jeff was the only broker willing to be specific in what Website Properties would provide and how likely I would be to be able to divest for the high end of market value. He fully delivered on precisely what he promised. I think other business owners would be well served by Jeff's professionalism and expertise.

I wanted to thank you for your assistance with the sale of my website. Your experience and professionalism was a major factor in the successful completion of not only the due diligence but agreement preparation as well.
Thank you again and I will be sure to use you for any similar sales in the future.

Jeff Baird is an extraordinary man. His efforts and patience have results in my selling two of my online magazines! He guided me along the way to ensure that I had all the important information that would attract a potential buyer. The entire process was really painless and I’m quite grateful for that! I could have gone to Flippa and would have had to figure it all out on my own, but I felt very comfortable with Jeff and trusted that I would be able to get a buyer that would be willing to pay a higher price than most sites sold on Flippa. In the end, Website Properties was the right choice for me!

Website Properties handled the sale of my website in the best possible way. Not only was a buyer found in less than 2 weeks but Jeff and Natalie worked with me every step of the way to ensure the transaction went smoothly.
“Working with WP was a great experience. They were quick to respond, had great follow through, and closed the deal quickly on the sell side. Their extensive Rolodex clearly made a difference in bringing in buyers. I have worked with several firms on both the buy and sell side in the past, and most of them I would not choose to work with again. I would work with Dave and his team again in a heartbeat.”
"I just wanted to thank you for your support and assistance with the transaction for Hevla Coffee. I felt comfortable with your professionalism every step of the process. More importantly, I valued the integrity and honesty that was provided. I enjoyed working with all of you and hope to possibly do business again in the near future."

"Just wanted to take a minute to thank you for your services and results. I first called Website Properties after being recommended by a good friend who sold his online business through you. I had a generic domain with a nice website for the last 10 years, and it was time for me to do something different. David was up front with me about price, time frame, and also the fact that I didn't have a whole lot of history documentation. All in all, David found a buyer for me without even listing it, but simply by calling his contacts and finding an interested party. The deal was done quickly and I got what I was looking for as far as compensation. If you ever need a personal recommendation, feel free to use me as a reference, and I would be happy to relate my positive and comfortable experience with your company.
"I would like to provide a testimonial because I so pleased with the service I received from Website Properties. Jeff Baird not only facilitated the entire process, he served as a personal advisor. He professionally represented our company from before the Prospectus was even drafted, through the posturing over details in the sales agreement. Jeff is not only knowledgeable, level-headed and professional, but his attention and caring were unsurpassed. He made us feel as if we were his only and his most important clients and I bet every client of his says the same thing. It is a unique talent and we are very grateful for the opportunity to work with him on the sale of our website. We enthusiastically recommend Website Properties to anyone who wants a top-notch sales experience."
"Dear Website Properties,
I wanted to write a quick note to thank you for the outstanding service and great success in selling my website CorvetteTraderOnline.com! This is the 3rd site you guys have sold for me now and like before the process was flawless and timely. You seem to really know how to find quality buyers for websites. Thanks"
"I heard about Website Properties excellent reputation through a friend who had sold their website through them. I had researched other web site brokers and just didn’t ‘feel the love’, but after speaking with Dave and his staff, I was completely confident that I had made the right decision listing my ecommerce site with Website Properties. Their knowledge and expertise is unsurpassed and their staff eagerly assisted me every step of the way, practically holding my hand, helping me navigate what seemed like challenges into a seamless transaction. They found the perfect buyer for my website, not just a qualified buyer, but someone who shared a similar vision for the continuation and growth of the website. Website Properties helped me attain the ultimate goal of what I wanted, turning my dream into a reality. What more could a customer ask for?"
"I had bought and sold businesses before I contacted Website Properties about purchasing a business they were representing for sale, so I my defenses were up and I was ready for battle. Part of a broker’s job is to provide the buyer with the information he needs, while determining how serious the buyer really is and not wasting the seller’s time. I didn’t feel rushed, but knew I had to make a decision. There was no battle, just some give and take. Seven months after closing, I’ve stopped expecting that sinking feeling that comes with finding out the answer to a question I didn’t ask." www.treadmill-world.com/

"Without question we picked the right company when we called Website Properties. From the initial call through the closing of the sale, your people were very professional, helpful and knowledgeable. It is quite clear to me that you folks know what you are doing, and do it very well. You made the process as easy as possible for us, which is important due to the fact that we have never sold an internet-based business before. Thanks again, we definitely couldn't have done it without you."
"Natalie and David,
Thanks for helping us sell our sites this year. You told us you'd 'bring us buyers' and you certainly did that. We look forward to having more sites to sell with you in the very near future. Thanks."
"I just wanted to say that working with your company was so easy. This was the first website that I sold and the guidance I received from Website Properties was phenomenal. I'll definitely be in touch again when I'm ready to sell my next business!
Thanks so much for everything you did."
"When I spoke to David Fairley of Website Properties about the sale of my website www.ergopro.com in early 2008 I was informed that it was worth 3 times the amount another broker had valued it at. The sale went through at four times the origininal amount instead! I am very grateful for the honesty, integrity and swiftness that it took to sell the website. The instructions David gave me so that I could produce all the necessary details about the business were easy and concise and they were always ready to answer any questions I had. Once the business was listed there was an offer made within a week and the website sold six weeks later with ease. David and his staff are extremely knowledgeable about the sale of internet businesses and I encourage you to have a conversation with them before you determine who your broker will be."
"I am pleased to say that with website properties, my expectations were both met and exceeded. From the start David Fairley offered me both supportive and realistic advice. David assisted me with determining both the value of the website and the best way to increase my chances of sale. As this was my first web property sale some aspects of the negotiations and paperwork were new to me, David assisted me with understanding each milestone as we moved forward to reach the best possible outcome for both me and the new owner. This deal is a true win-win scenario where I will continue to grow the relationship with the new owner to build on an already successful transaction. Thank you website properties!"

"I can't thank you and your team at Website Properties enough! I was impressed with your service from day 1 and the quality of service carried all the way through to the closing of my website. Your company is the only company I would ever use or recommend."
"We enlisted the services of Website Properties for the sale of DreamEssentials.com. It is our pleasure to highly recommend Website Properties as they were quickly able to obtain a large list of pre-screened and qualified buyers for the purchase of our business. Not only did they narrow the list of highly qualified potentials down to ensure that the future owner's of Dream Essentials were amiable to work with, but they reassured us that the new owner's also had the necessary vision and talent for the continuity of the business. Quite simply, Website Properties found us "a perfect match".
The Website Properties team conducted all negotiations between buyer and seller in order to reach an equitable deal and was always there to help navigate us through troubled waters. Website Properties successfully guided us through all issues in a timely, friendly and uncomplicated manner. The team was always available to us via phone and email and responded to our needs not only the same day, but usually within the hour. Our ultimate goal was to conduct a smooth sale and transition of ownership and with the services of Website Properties enlisted, they surpassed our expectations.
We highly recommend Website Properties as the leader in their field for anyone actively seeking to buy or sell an on-line business."
"My experience with Website Properties Inc. was nothing short of extraordinary. They were professional, methodical, courteous, and communicative throughout every stage of the process. Selling a website can be challenging at times. Website Properties, Inc. made the process as painless and stress-free as possible which, for a busy executive, means the world. Thank you to Dave and company for a job well done."
"Website Properties is an organization that executed the sale of our site with complete efficient professionalism. From prospecting to negotiation, Website Properties handled the sale of my business as if they were selling their own Internet Company"
