Client Testimonials

"My AFTCO Analyst was great. I talked with him over a six year period and he was always interested in finding the right person within my time frame for the transition. I couldn't have made the successful transition that I did without AFTCO."

Stanton D. Dunn Jr., D.D.S.
Scottsburg, IN

"My AFTCO Analyst was very knowledgeable and helpful. He made sure that I got all of the help I needed during the transaction by providing me with multiple referrals. He also did a great job explaining the process and answered all of my questions. I would recommend AFTCO to anyone who asks."

Thunga Nguyen, D.D.S.
Baton Rouge, LA

"My AFTCO Analyst was a great person to have when buying my new practice. He was knowledgeable about the practice, the area, and was quick to provide information when needed. I would refer people to my AFTCO Analyst if they were looking to buy or sell an office."

Keith A. Blessitt, D.M.D.
Nokomis, FL

"I was pleasantly shocked & surprised at the speed in which AFTCO was able to find a buyer for my practice. It took about two weeks before I had two buyers. My AFTCO Analyst was attentive to detail and always seemed to have my best interests to heart. The sale went very smoothly & the transition has been great."
