Simmons is the oldest and most experienced veterinary brokerage and appraisal firm in the nation. No individual or firm has helped more veterinarians through the process of buying or selling a veterinary practice. You can confidently reach for expert advice with a call to any of our 12 regional offices.
Simmons has 12 regional offices ready to go to work for you. We have the ability to blanket the market with our advertising and marketing – leveraging our regional offices and national advertising to offer reach that a small regional office simply doesn’t have. Our multifaceted advertising and marketing touch every corner of the market.
Simmons has a frequent presence at state, regional, and national meetings, with booths to advertise our listed practices. We are also frequent speakers at:
When we post a new listing, we inform our extensive national database, which quickly puts potential buyers in touch with sellers. This is especially effective for buyers who have registered for Simmons’ Practice Watch Program to receive instant notifications.
Simmons also advertises regularly in JAVMA, Today’s Veterinary Business, Clinician’s Brief, DVM360, and local and state newsletters.
Several factors determine our fees. For veterinary practice sales, they are usually based on a percentage of the sales price. For appraisals, we charge a flat or hourly fee.
An expert Simmons valuation can be your most important negotiation asset, whether buying or selling a veterinary practice. With many factors that affect price and value, Simmons uses expert methodology and decades of experience to guide clients through this crucial step. We work very hard to ensure pricing is fair to both buyers and sellers.
Simmons understands the importance of confidentiality. Selling a veterinary practice on your own might fuel speculation among your staff and clients, potentially resulting in an unwanted exodus. In addition, buyers often wish to begin purchasing their own practice before informing their current employers.
We strictly require confidentiality agreements from buyers and screen them prior to releasing sensitive practice information. Simmons also holds buyer information in confidence.
Several Simmons experts are available to speak at your local, state, regional, or national meetings on topics related to buying, selling, or appraising veterinary practices or on other practice management topics.
We know what works and what doesn’t. Simmons experts guide you through the process to ensure a smooth practice transition. If you are buying a veterinary practice, we can assist in interpreting practice and financial data. If you are selling your practice, we offer the guidance and leadership necessary to see the sale through to a successful conclusion.
