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

"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."
