From my first conversation with Sherif, his knowledge and professionalism was clear. Both he and Jake delivered on their commitments and kept solid communications throughout the process. I spoke with other practice brokers before listing with APS, and from a “seller” standpoint they offered the bestselling and pricing strategies. They provided me with many qualified CPA-buyers, and best of all, I received all cash at close with no contingencies. I would recommend Sherif and Jake to any colleague with confidence!

My daughter, who was the CPA, was experiencing severe health challenges and was not longer able to operate her practice. We were in the middle of packing up and closing her office by month end when we contacted Sherif and APS. I was in shock when they had five interested buyers in a matter of days. Sherif and APS were able to help us structure a deal and close in less than two weeks. Most of all, they showed compassion and true desire to help throughout. I’m grateful for having found Sherif!
