  • Most Helpful – having a third party to advocate for us and help us to negotiate on items, especially those that we were not on the same page with. Having someone else, who had been a practice owner and bought/sold himself, to bounce things off and gain a different perspective or draw on experience.

  • A huge thankyou to Rob Adams and HPB Vet Brokers for helping us sell our Veterinary Hospital.
    Rob’s experience and knowledge of the process has proved invaluable.
    The whole sale process was simple, streamlined, stress free.

    Guiding us thru the sale process, recommending a knowledgable conveyancer/ simplifying the whole process.
    Not having to find a conveyancer, not needing a lawyer, the transition process list, the assistance the buyer also received especially regarding loans, the drug licence, radiation licence etc.

    Rob negotiated the best price for us, I truly believe we could not have done those negotiations as effectively.  The way Rob packaged the sale was also very effective Tho we had initially been sceptical.
    Were there extra services you did not expect?

    The communication thru out the sale process was exceptional .

    Miles & Deb Nye-Chart – Mt Barker Sellers

  • Hi Rob,
    Thanks for reaching out to me. We did receive the gift- thank you very much. I apologize I have not thanked you earlier.
    We had a great experience with you buying the practice. I think your insight was extremely valuable and I can’t thank you enough for putting us in contact with the right people. Credable, Macri etc. all worked out great.
    Overall, we are very, very happy with the practice and the way you handled the sale for us. Many thanks Rob.

    James Brown – Mt Barker Buyer

  • I would like to pass on a huge thank you to Rob for all of his hard work in helping us achieve our practice sale.
    As somebody who was fairly inexperienced in this field, Rob took what was a daunting task and made it a straightforward, understandable and stress free process.
    We achieved our goals quickly and couldn’t be happier with HPB. Would highly recommend it for anyone thinking of moving on from practice ownership.

  • March 2020 Alan Kelly – Cannington Vet – Sold to Corporate

    I would like to thank Rob for his valuable assistance in selling Cannington Veterinary Hospital. I can’t imagine that we would have had such a good outcome in a relatively short period without his intimate knowledge and experience both as a broker and previous veterinary practice owner.

    The sale was desired because after 22 years of ownership in a successful and equal partnership, Trevor and I found ourselves diverging in our interest and contribution. I was approaching the traditional retirement age and wanted to reduce my clinical work, whereas Trevor was still motivated to continue in active practice. Inevitably over time this was creating a stress.

    Although we considered selling to either a private or corporate buyer, we had several thoughts in mind including:

    • We didn’t want an overly drawn-out sale as it would be a constant distraction from running the practice.
    • We preferred a “silent process” that didn’t involve prospective buyers being visible to our clients and staff. That meant not advertising on the open market. This was to avoid exposing our staff to the stress of knowing we were selling without knowing when that might happen or who might be the new owners.
    • After many years of hard work and the risks associated with running a successful practice, we wanted a good return on our investment.
    • We wanted our legacy to endure, both in the style of practice for our clients, and continuity for our staff. Neither of us were comfortable with the idea of a Greencross, Petstock or Vetwest style of rebranding and corporate culture.

    Rob was able to take all this on board and find us the right buyer with minimal fuss, despite it being a difficult market due to Covid. Furthermore, he was able to recommend an excellent lawyer to assist in the legal aspects of the sale negotiation, business conveyancing, and drafting of a suitable lease agreement (the buyers weren’t interested in owning he property).

    I would be very happy to recommend Rob to anyone contemplating the sale of their practice.

    Kind Regards
