Any other brokers tired of "answers" from others that are just advertisements?

I find it annoying that some brokers simply post their contact info - rather than giving a thoughful answer. Anybody out there feel the same?

Thanks!

Point well taken and appreciated. I try to do what is expected but also get my message across when I can. Hard to see people asking questions that make it clear that they haven't done due dilligence.
Thanks, Don. Jon at Edgemaster Mobile Sharpening/

John, you curtailed, what I felt to be some questionable answers, early on. I think the problem is being asked, "How do I evaluate the price of a franchise?" and the only answer being something like, "I have a thousand franchises to offer you...". That does not answer, or even attempt to answer the question. That's objectionable.

But if someone asks, "What business can I buy for $15,000?", and someone answers, "I have such a business right here - call me", that is a different story.

No one is damning anyone for answering a specific question with a specific answer that may be self serving. But those who go off on a tangent in an attempt to do nothing but perform self promotion, without helping the person in the way he/she is asking...well, that is just wrong, in my book.

Again, I have seen good answers coming from you, on some subjects.

Julie, I am one of the guilty parties, I guess, but I try to answer questions when i feel there is a reasonable answer the inquirer may not have thought of. I have gotten a ton of inquiries on my web site as a result of this forum. So there must be that many people that are at least interested enough to click my web reference. I feel that this site was called BizBuySell, not Ask,com. I do have a business to sell and if I honestly feel that it could be good for someone in Texas who has $50-$75k to invest, they may not be hurt by checking my site. Am I Wrong? Jon at Edgemaster Mobile. Tell me.

Hey John,

No problem - you don't need to be a broker to appreciate exploitation when you see it. I like to think (I may be a Pollyanna) that we're a community of sorts and I'm not real crazy about interlopers who expend no energy, time, or thought to 'answers' when the rest of us are sincerely attempting to be of professional service.

Thanks

The most annoying ones are the cut and paste responses. They will post the same response regardless of the question. Another one that bothers me is the franchise response--- especially when the question is about a bar or something else and the response is about a candle selling franchise. somebody started a thread about the franchise answers a few months ago. I even mocked the franchise answer a few days ago when someone posted random letters.

Agreed, without question. I am glad you took it upon yourself to write; I thought I was the only one! (I tend to see myself as a little more reactionary than others.)

Thank you.

Yes, Julie! Though many of our colleagues have left the industry recently, there are qualified and ethical brokers out there that can offer advice to sellers and buyers.

I especially like the spirit of this community -- much like within our own organisations, such as the IBBA -- we are here to assist each other, regardless of where people are located. We can also put people in touch with local brokers in their area.

I have also been fortunate to meet other practitioners myself. . . Nice to meet you!
