“It was a pleasure working with APS. I was a sole-practitioner with a practice that specialized in a particular niche, and really was not sure how marketable my practice would be. Steve and Mike had five interested buyers within 2 weeks, and I was able to sell for my full asking price. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend them. They were very professional, understand the market, and did an amazing job.”
