When a change in circumstances necessitated me selling my practice, I knew it was something I needed expert help with. It is too big an asset to make a mistake, and it was something I had never done before. I researched several dental practice brokers with varying services and fees. I was aware that Practice Sale Search and Simon Palmer was a recognised leader in this area, with a great reputation, and had read several testimonials on the website explaining his capabilities.
I found the PSS website’s appearance clear and professional and it was easy to navigate. When I contacted PSS, the service was immediately prompt and efficient. I felt reassured that I was in good, experienced hands. Simon brought us several interested parties very quickly.
Due to the partnership arrangement within my practice and its rural location, a sale was always going to be complicated. Partners understandably have differing priorities, values and circumstances, which have the potential to cause conflict if not well managed.
There’s no denying, the process of selling is arduous, stressful and meandering, but Simon kept us on track. He was always available by phone for impartial and honest advice, and he was able to remove the emotional aspect that we naturally have as owners from the discussion.
When a deal was imminent, he directed us to a selection of several expert legal people with experience in this niche field. The solicitor we chose was highly skilled and successfully guided us through a complicated matter also involving a lease, to a mutually beneficial and fair agreement for all parties.
I know that without guidance the potential for disaster and disappointment was looming. With professional help, I managed to avoid the pitfalls, have maintained my good relationship with my business partner and I am now able to start the new phase of my life with my family, feeling satisfied with the result.
Thank you Simon for selling my practice.
