you told me that you dont buy the business but you find a buyer for the businesses, this is a broker job and you can't sell without a license. All it needs one complaint to DRE and you may be apprehended.
Be serious man, get the right thing get a license.

Dear Joel,
Thank you for your question. On our site we do not seperate for sale by owner listings from listings that are listed by brokers. However most brokers indicate within the contact the seller box the company that they work for; you can use this as a way to determine if the listing is listed by the owner. The other way is to just inquire and see what the lister says.
