It’s almost like a vacation with the “shelter in place” directive because it’s just the two of us enjoying time together. Something we haven’t been able to do before. We sit on the deck, listen to the birds, and watch the ducks, geese, cranes, and herons in the pond and realize how blessed we are to be here right now. It certainly has made all those years of hard work and long hours worth it. Even though at times it seemed like a long and arduous process, it is very true that without … Steve’s help and guidance, we would never have been able to find such a well-qualified buyer and conclude the sale in such a way that was not only very beneficial to us but also laid the groundwork for our life’s work to continue in the way we had hoped it would.

Jonah Sachs

High-end Marketing/Web Development Firm Owner, Author, Speaker, Valuation, Consulting, Transition

We did close last week after all, and I think it all worked out very well. Your services throughout our transaction were invaluable. Our client feels the same way. He mentioned it on my last call with him last Thursday night. I can’t thank you enough, and I look forward to the possibility of another transaction sometime in the future.

Attorney for Mutual Client

Negotiated Partner Buy-out

My wife and I were working on our estate planning and used Steve and his people to do a valuation of our successful private family-owned funeral home. We were not looking to sell at that time but little did we know that just a few months later, a situation presented itself to sell the firm to our son and a partner, which addressed our deep desire to see our life’s work and legacy remain as a family firm. From the outset, we were comfortable with their style and professionalism, and easy to work with…it felt as if we were working with trusted friends. Their work was thorough and helped us structure the transaction in a way that both addressed our personal and financial goals but ultimately made it possible for our son and his partner to intelligently consummate the purchase in an advantageous manner that benefitted all parties. Compared to other advisors and consultants in our profession, there was never any pressure or attempt to sell us any ancillary services. Pleased with their work and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

Peter Kulbacki, Founder

The BRUNSWICK MEMORIAL HOME, Valuation, Transition

Steve and his team were invaluable to the acquisition process. From the time negotiations with the seller started all the way through to the closing day, I knew I could reach out and get my questions answered in a prompt and professional manner. I would highly recommend Steve for anyone looking to buy or sell within the death care space. You’ll be glad you did.
