Former Business Owner and Satisfied Seller

"Coastal Home Care engaged the services of Partners 31 to assist in developing a new line of services. We badly needed the clinical expertise and management experience that Dan Baker brought to us. He organized the team, developed training programs, curricula and time lines for training. Through Dan's guidance we were able to fast track. Our program would not have the quality it does without Dan's leadership. The services of Partners 31 saved us thousands of $$$ and months of time. We will use their services again!"

“Risa was instrumental in the selling of my Health Care Agency. The negotiations were over a five month period and every time I would get nervous, or anxious Risa would calm me and deal with the purchaser. She negotiated the price and I walked away a happy woman. She made it a pleasurable experience and if I were to do it again, I would use her talents.”

Carol

Business Owner

“Thank you for the excellent service and attention you provided me during my corporate search. You are truly a professional and asset to your occupation. Your industry knowledge and attention to detail were greatly appreciated.”

Steve

Business Owner

“I’ve collaborated with many coaches and consultants over the years, and I would rank Allen Ward as one of the most insightful and capable individuals with whom I’ve partnered. Having worked across multiple health care settings, Allen’s experience and analytical skills effectively challenged our agency’s thinking. He assisted us in improving our operational model, resulting in improved productivity and a corresponding reduction in operating expenses. I have truly enjoyed working with Allen. I would strongly recommend his services to any organization seeking to add clarity and efficiency to their operations.”

JoAnn

CEO Westbrook Health Services

“Risa, your presentation was “right over the target zone.” It worked perfectly in getting our franchisees to begin the process to form organizational values. Several attendees said they were going to begin implementing the long- range goals you discussed. Thank you, thank you.”

Vince

CEO Select Home Care

“Everything you did to help us through our transaction was fantastic! You created an atmosphere of calm when nerves and anxiety threatened to take over but you also were stern when needed. Your style and communication really helped us through the process. I will always appreciate that!”

Ronnell

CIO Caring Hearts

“Risa’s expertise providing an assessment of our home health care business was extraordinarily helpful! She coached both buying, as well as selling partners, successfully on business valuation, bill rate and pay rate ratios, and ways to progressively move forward. As a result of her insight, our buy-out and transition was smooth, efficient and, perhaps most importantly, worked well for both parties. If you are thinking about selling your business, I would highly recommend engaging the services of Partners 31. You will be pleased with the level of professionalism and the ease of facilitation they bring to the process.”

Bill

President & CEO Southeast Tourism Society

“Risa, I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for all you’ve done for us in selling our business. Your vast amount of knowledge in the health care industry and mergers and acquisitions far surpasses the competition. We could not have done it without you. My advice for anyone wanting to sell or even thinking about selling their business is to call Partners 31 and let them do the rest! Thanks Again!”

“It was a great experience to work with Risa when selling our business. As first-time business sellers we needed someone with a lot of experience to help guide us.

She represents both buyers and sellers focusing on both parties’ best interests.”
