"When I was selecting a broker, I spoke with a local well known broker and Practice Exchange. Initially, I was reluctant to go with Practice Exchange since they were 3 states away during COVID. Even though it took a leap of faith to sign with them, I liked Practice Exchange’s team approach and from the beginning, they made me feel like I was their only client. They provided sound advice throughout the process and referred me to other professionals that were also outstanding. Since I sold my practice and real estate, there were a lot of moving parts and Ryan, Peter and Norm’s guidance kept everything tracking forward. I would highly recommend Practice Exchange if you’re considering the next step in selling your practice." Dr. Joseph Sandberg, D.M.D. MAGD - New Jersey
"From the first conversation I had with Norm to the closing on the sale of my Practice I always felt they had my best interest at heart. The professionalism of all the staff made the process go very smoothly, they always made time for my questions and their feedback was extremely helpful. While exploring options for selling my practice I spoke with other brokers, but have always felt I made the best choice in choosing Practice Exchange for the sale of my office. I would highly recommend working with Norm and his staff to anyone interested" Dr. Arno Topp, D.M.D.
I decided to pursue selling my optometric practice when a nearby group called wanting to purchase and made an offer. There was an unsolicited letter on my desk from Practice Exchange that did not make the circular file, so when I had a no show patient I called them on a whim. The call was engaging and enjoyable so I decided to look into their program. The local group's accountants appraised my practice, however I was not impressed so I had Practice Exchange value it. Their comprehensive appraisal was 60% higher, a number eventually offered though Practice Exchange. Practice Exchange had in depth knowledge and understanding of optometric practices. Questions and details that needed attended to received immediate attention, with quick responses. Unexpectedly, Practice Exchange did much work for the buyers to facilitate the deal and obtain more favorable financing, ultimately benefiting me. Selling a practice is more daunting and complicated than you probably think. I found Practice Exchange to be very knowledgeable, professional, and personable during the sales process, resulting with me being very happy I chose them. Dr. John Reimold, O.D.
I wanted to thank you for finding me and sending me an email asking if I was interested in selling the practice. When I first saw the email, I said to myself, “I’m not selling the practice… but let me see what he has to offer.“ You said you had some candidates interested in buying a practice in Morris County and I thought to myself, well I’m not looking to sell but let’s give it a try. This started in March 2021 and by June 2021 , we had the closing for the dental practice and the condo unit. I took a chance and it all worked out. Doing business with Practice Exchange and Ryan Kelly was a smooth transition. I highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in selling. Thank you for the opportunity once again. Dr. Patricia Patterne, D.M.D.
"Nothing but positive thoughts about my experience with this broker. I initially thought a simple listing at the schools would bring in a slew of prospects. Two years later, no bites. After signing up with Practice Exchange, events moved swiftly. First, a very detailed "bank ready" appraisal was prepared. Afterwhich, contacts were quickly made leading to a qualified buyer. Now where this firm really shines is in the "nitty-gritty" of closing the deal. They have the expertise to bring together all the "devil in the details": legal / accounting / financing. Thanks to this professional firm, I'm now transitioning to a new and exciting stage of my life." Dr. Paul Mazur - New Jersey
"Peter Almonte and his team were very attentive and well organized during the whole process. They were a great fit for my recent practice purchase. Their guidance and experience served as a great stabilizing factor through my first transition. It helped me gain perspective along the way. Peter and his team were recommended to me by a colleague that had purchased a practice one year earlier and after working with them I would highly recommend them as well." Dr. Justin Coleman - Kentucky
"When I hired Practice Exchange the conditions for the sale of a practice were not optimal. My lease was expiring in a few months and the COVID-19 pandemic had taken hold. In fact, I told everyone that if the practice did not sell I would probably close the doors on my office, because continued work in a pandemic at my age was not recommended by my doctor. Soon enough we had potential buyers and you doggedly worked through every issue that came up until we reached the goal line. Some of the things that I think your group does well is staying very much in contact with your client and also making sure that we were protected in the transaction. Basically we all worked together until we had an agreement that was good for all parties. So I want to thank you for a great outcome and would be happy to tell any dentist selling their practice that they could not find a better group to represent them." Dr. David Schwaber - Hartford County Dental Practice

"Working with Practice Exchange has been such a pleasure. They were referred to me by a colleague who had the utmost praise for their services. The brokers at Practice exchange not only executed an efficient, solid, fair acquisition for my practice, but had an eye for the right buyer/seller compatibility and compassion for both buyer and seller at a time when emotion can play heavy. Their experience was reflected through out the purchase of my practice and truly I can't say enough about their professionalism every step of the way. Their team, from real estate, accounting to brokers is cohesive and effective. I highly recommend this group of amazing people for any practice buy or sell." MA DENTIST
"My wife and I recently worked with Peter and his team in the purchase of our optometry practice, and we could not have asked for anyone better. From helping us narrow our choices of potential practices to a seamless and successful closing, they demonstrated unparalleled patience, knowledge, responsiveness, and work ethic. The team, led by Peter, made it especially easy for us to purchase a practice from out of state, allowing us to work through most of the transition remotely and minimizing our travel costs. My wife and I put a lot of thought and research when choosing a practice consultant, and after meeting several candidates, it was evident that Peter and his team stood head and shoulders above the rest. We highly recommend Peter and his team without reservation for your practice transition needs." Dr. Christopher Daldine & Dr. Patricia Samuel - New Hampshire
