“The whole experience of selling the practice, with all the decisions and preparing of reports for due diligence was made so much easier because of your guidance. I have no doubt that you (and your team) helped me get a significantly better price and terms than I would have gotten on my own. All this just as covid had hit. Your guidance was invaluable. I am extremely happy with how things turned out. Thank you for that."

“I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed and appreciated working with Stacy and David. Your help was invaluable and made the sale easy. I’m kind of disappointed I don’t have any more clinics to sell. But it was exciting while it happened.”

“I would highly recommend the services of Dr. Elizabeth Bellavance, Simmons Canada, for those wishing to sell their veterinary practice. My partner and I had been in negotiations with potential buyers for two years with little success in receiving offers that reflected the practice’s true valuation. After several unsuccessful attempts on our own, we sought the services of Dr. Bellavance. She managed to negotiate a deal that went well beyond our expectations. The financial windfall certainly justified the cost of her services. Her expertise and negotiating skills were indispensable for such a deal to occur…one far more favorable than what we could have achieved on our own. Since the sale of our practice to a corporate entity, and my subsequent retirement, I am happily traveling the world!”

"Thank you so much for your diligence with this transaction. We realize it would not have happened without you and your knowledge. You were absolutely wonderful to work with and are a true asset to your profession. You deserve so much credit. You were a total pleasure to work with and so easy to communicate with – and your professionalism and dedication to your job showed in all our interactions. That seems to be in short supply these days. We will never be able to convey our appreciation for all your help and dedication."

"We were originally questioning whether or not to use a third party to assist us with the sale of our practice. We weren't sure how difficult or complicated the process would be. Well, in answer to both, "very". There was quite a lot of work involved covering many months, and I am not sure if we would have gone through with the sale if it had not been for Carly and her team. During the offer process, it was nice to have someone with the inside scoop on what a company man or may not accept. We felt cared for and listened to at every turn. It was nice to be able to have someone on our side that we could trust to run all our concerns by, particularly the times when we doubted whether a certain issue was important enough to bring up. At times, upon conveying our concerns to Carly, we would find that it was indeed an important issue, out of the ordinary, and something that should and would be addressed. We didn't have to worry about being taken advantage of by high paid attorneys, since Simmons' job is to be the go-between. If we had to do it over again, there is no doubt in my mind we would contract with Simmons & Associates. We would highly recommend them to anyone."

I would highly recommend you to anyone thinking about selling their practice. I hear that the Karnes are very happy which warms my heart. I am loving retirement...it was definitely time for me to make the change. I just can't thank you enough!"

“None of this would have been possible without all your hard work and dedication. One of the best decisions I ever made was choosing you to work with. You are absolutely the best! I cannot express how much of a pleasure it has been working with you. Thank you!”

"I want to say thank you to you both. There is no way we could have accomplished this sale and remained sane. I have realized my dream of being a practice owner!"

"Working with Simmons was a sincere pleasure. They asked relevant questions and were honest and upfront with what they needed and what I should expect. Now with the entire process in my rear view mirror, I can sincerely say I am so happy I listened to my colleagues and investigated selling my practice. I encourage you as I was encouraged… If retirement is ANYWHERE in your future, look now while the economy and tax rates et al. are on your side. Find a great team to help with the transition and most definitely utilize Stacy and her group at Simmons and Associates to find you the best deal!"

"Since retirement, I have done some traveling, have taken up kayaking, spent more time with my grandkids and have volunteered to umpire little league games this spring. You all have helped to make all of this possible and I am very grateful for your hard work on my behalf. Be proud of the work you do. Your organization skills, attention to detail, and most importantly, your people skills are top notch. Thanks again for making my plans come true."

"Simmons & Associates’ experience, knowledge, and persistent attitude proved invaluable for us. They made sure both buyer and seller were completing tasks in a timely manner. Their diligence and close attention to details saves headaches as you approach closing. Simmons & Associates’ experience with practice sales also helped us avoid conflicts by giving us unbiased solutions based on practical experience."

"Thank you so much for an awesome job. I want to thank you and all of your staff for the great job you did in brokering my practice. I couldn’t have chosen a better, more competent firm to represent me."

"Nikki Nitz told me that she had nearly 30 corporate buyers they dealt with, and I received 6 offers to buy my practice. In the end, I accepted an offer nearly double my best year’s gross, which was far beyond my expectations. Nikki worked very hard to guide me through the potential pratfalls of such a large acquisition, and I am convinced that, in the end, the sales price was nearly $1,000,000 more than I would have received working by myself. Nikki Nitz and Simmons and Associates have my highest recommendation and gratitude for successfully guiding me through the largest transition of my life and career."
