My experience with senior living began in 1988 as a family business member that started with one small assisted living facility in the town where I was born.  We grew from there, developing and operating more than 20 assisted living facilities.

In a small family business, you wear many hats.  That was my experience.  I had responsibilities for sales, marketing, operations, development, purchasing, licensing, management, and more.

I share my experiences so you don’t have to learn the hard way.

Subscribe to our weekly emails, attend one of our on-demand courses, or work with one of our certified advisors.  We’re here to help you meet your goals, whether starting, growing, or exiting your senior living business.


Senior care owners start by buying a facility, building one, or converting another property. Each strategy has advantages and disadvantages.  We’re here to help you pick a path that works for you.


Every owner wants to grow their business, whether improving their current facility or scaling up with additional locations.  This stage of your business has opportunities but also pitfalls.  We’ll help you stay on track toward your goals.


You’ve worked hard and deserve to exit your business profitably.  A sale might provide the nest egg for retirement or the capital for your next project.  Whatever your plans for the future, we help guide you through an exit to enjoy all you’ve worked for.

I am grateful to have Mike as my mentor. His expertise in commercial advisory, particularly in assisted living facility transactions, has been nothing short of transformative for me. Mike’s insightful guidance, coupled with his deep understanding of the market, has empowered me to  navigate the complex process of selling properties with confidence and success. His commitment to mentorship is truly commendable and has made a significant impact on my professional growth.

I have been an assisted living owner since 1996. I  have worked with Mike over the years in many different areas of assisted living, and he helped me sell one of my facilities. He is a good listener, helpful, and knowledgeable in all areas of assisted living facilities and selling them. He helped me search for buyers, even once when I sold a facility myself. I’ve had questions, and Mike was always ready to help with solutions. He is quick to respond and very knowledgeable about the needs of buyers.  Mike is my “go-to” guy for help selling my facility. I highly recommend him.
