I recently sold my Dental Practice in Fairfield NSW, and the process was handled by Practice Sale Search. I have never written a review, for anything, but I am truly moved to share my thoughts, and say how happy I am with the team and especially Kevin Koton.
Maybe 18 months ago, I mentioned to Simon Palmer that I was thinking of selling my practice after 37 years, and he kindly paid me a visit and suggested a few cosmetic changes, which were easily completed over the following months.
I also mentioned to my accountant that I was thinking of selling, and he immediately suggested another client, a young dentist, who was in the market to buy his first practice, and he wanted the sale to be handled by them, because ‘CPAs do this all the time’. So I ran with this idea for a few weeks, but I was never really at ease with this. Selling your Practice, which is ‘your life’s work’, is a huge event, and requires a team of professionals. Which is why I asked Practice Sale Search for help.
Simon, Kevin and the team went into action, suggesting several possibilities that I could never have thought of by myself. These possibilities included combining my practice with another practice and selling to a Corporate, or selling my practice to another local dentist, and moving patients and staff to that practice, or selling as a ‘stand-alone’ practice. All options were explored thoroughly.
Kevin handled the sale with skill and confidentiality, showing my practice to 17 possible buyers, before settling on a final buyer. Selling your practice can be a very emotional time, but my questions, concerns and fears were dealt with promptly, which kept the stress to a minimum. In the end I have sold my practice to a nice young dentist, I got the price that I wanted, my staff are happy, and I am happy.
Thank you Kevin, Simon and Practice Sale Search. You did a great job!
