Testimonials | Aged Care
From the moment we met James, his knowledge and professionalism ensured our confidence in him. James knew we wanted to achieve a sale efficiently with minimal upheaval, and he convinced us to use a short-term targeted off-market process. Due to this recommendation and assistance from James we managed to achieve an extremely successful outcome in a very short period of time. As very satisfied vendors we have no hesitation in recommending Lifecare Property to anyone who is anticipating selling or purchasing an aged care facility or commercial property.
Owen & Jill Brady and June Woods - Lynton Lodge Hospital, Auckland
James introduced himself to me to ascertain my interest in selling one of my aged care properties. It was obvious that he knew the aged care sector intimately and was instrumental in conveying the true value of the business to the eventual buyer. James brokered a benchmark price and professionally managed the complex due diligence requirements through to completion, including the many requirements needing to be met to satisfy many governmental groups. James gained my respect early on as being invested in making the deal happen in a respectful, polite, and definite way. I intend to utilise his services in the future with any potential sales.
Jo Macfarlane - Tui Village Home & Hospital, Auckland
Despite incumbent agents in the sector at the time we felt James was best qualified to articulate the key facets
of the business, its market proposition and future potential. It was also our preference that any sale process be
undertaken on a highly confidential basis, to a small contingent of qualified buyers. James listened to us and did just this, completing an invite-only bid process and achieving a fantastic result. What was particularly impressive was that the purchaser was a new entrant to the industry. James's abilities shone here, guiding the purchaser through the nuances of entering aged care and similarly giving our shareholders the confidence that this group was capable of completion.The industry is lucky to have a specialist agent like James and we recommend him to other kiwis looking to sell their aged care business.
Calvin & Denise Kerrisk - New Vista Home & Hospital, Whanganui
James conducted an off-market, confidential sale process for our 45-bed rest home which had been family-owned for over 45 years. His extensive knowledge of the sector enabled him to bring a wide range of highly qualified purchasers to the table. The resulting competitive process produced a number of strong bidders and an excellent sale price, but more importantly a good owner and steward of the facility for the residents who call it home. James’ understanding of the intricacies of the regulatory and funding processes in the sector was also invaluable in guiding the transaction through the due diligence and handover process – despite the added complications of Alert Level 4 settings for much of the process. We highly recommend James for his professionalism and capability.
