Seller Frequently Asked Questions

Why use 1st Med Transitions?

Finding a Practice Broker you can trust should be at the forefront of your process when considering selling your practice.  Many states require that Business Brokers be licensed in an effort to help protect the public from fraudulent practices.  Even if the state doesn't require licensing, we require all of our practice brokers to have a real estate license. It is important that the Practice Broker you choose has the education, background and experience necessary  to help you complete a legal and positive transaction.

What Our Clients Have To Say

The terms 1st Med was able to negotiate with the other party made most of my colleagues' jaw drop in disbelief. Would a value of over 120% of your practice collections and a transition commission that is half of what others charge sound like a good deal? it sure did to us

Never felt so free and financially secure in my life. Finally, I am able to enjoy what I am trained to do best, being an exceptional dentist, while still being able to spend quality time with my family and enjoying my time off.
