Client Testimonials

"I worked with my AFTCO Analyst on a practice where she represented a deceased dentist. My AFTCO Analyst did an amazing job in selling the practice in a timely manner. She is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of a dental practice acquisition. I would recommend my AFTCO Analyst to anyone who wanted to purchase or sell a dental practice."

Michael L. Greenbaum, D.D.S.
Great Neck, NY

"My AFTCO Analyst was totally professional in evaluating the value of my practice. After I agreed to list the practice for sale, he brought several well qualified candidates in to talk to me about acquiring my practice. Ultimately, the two dentists that ended up acquiring the practice couldn't have been a better fit. The negotiations went smoothly and ultimately I couldn't have been happier with the final outcome. I would definitely refer colleagues to AFTCO for the high quality service that they provide."

Jerome M. Usheroff, D.D.S.
Chicago, IL

"My AFTCO Analyst's professional and genuine interest in my practice transition made the process very easy. I felt very fortunate to have his guidance throughout the entire process. I would recommend my AFTCO Analyst highly."

John S. Taylor, D.D.S.
Henderson, TX

"My AFTCO Analyst was very professional and excellent at explaining everything. The contracts were well written which caused much less involvement to be required from the dentists' attorneys. The transaction went smoothly because of my AFTCO Analyst."

Three years later, Dr. A suddenly died of a heart attack.

Why you don’t sell the Real Estate with Your Practice

Doctors invariably want to sell their office building at the same time they sell their practice. This is the worst time to sell the building, however, and will usually result in tens of thousands of lost dollars for the seller. This is known as the “I just don’t want to be bothered with anything after the practice is sold” syndrome. It can have a devastating effect on the financial net worth of the retiring doctor at a very critical time in his or her life.
