We turned to JCG for their expertise and guidance to help us transition the business which was the heart and soul of who we are…and left with so much more. We consider Karen a dear friend and are blessed to have had her leadership as we moved from ownership to retirement. We often remark that without Johnson’s support, we would still be mired in the process of finding the right successor owner for our business. Trusting JCG to navigate the way was, hands down, the best decision for our family.

Once we made up our mind to sell, Johnson’s were quick to market it and bring some favorable offers to the table. We appreciated Jake & Brian’s expertise in the transition and completion of the sale.
John and Amy Potter
To the Johnson’s and staff at Johnson Consulting, thank you so much. Throughout the process beginning with evaluation to closing you were there for me. Your industry expertise, connections with qualified buyers and your negotiating skills all proved invaluable in attaining a satisfying outcome both for me and the buyer. I would highly recommend your services and wish you all the best of luck into the future.
Johnson Consulting Group’s disciplined and structured processes resulted in several very serious offers and maximized the value we received…Tom and Jake were sincere in wanting to help me reach a decision, whatever it might be. Tom made me realize he was more than a broker, he was a trusted advisor and friend, with my best interests at heart. JCG helped secure my family’s future and we are forever grateful.
We sold our small funeral home on January 11, 2018. Karen McCurdy (Johnson Consulting Group) was the primary person we worked with. Karen was instrumental in helping us get our business sold!
From the beginning, Karen guided us step by step thru this process. Karen listened and advised us every step of the way.

Johnson Consulting diligently researches every phase of an acquisition project which gives the buyer and seller the confidence they need to make a fair and equitable agreement. Acquisitions would never happen without an intelligent articulation of all the aspects of a complex deal.
The specific data that I needed in order to make quick and accurate decisions was always at my fingertips. With the systems that Johnson Consulting brings to the table, I am able to draw the same data and specific information that I need to operate my business at a very high level and at an extremely affordable cost.

With the experience of having sold 13 of these firms on my own, I did not think I needed any help when I attempted to sell a prime combination location and another funeral home in 2009 … but I did and the sale fell apart. Since then I have used Johnson Consulting Group to sell that combination and 7 other locations; all with excellent results. As I continue to work towards my retirement, you can be assured I will be trusting David Adams at Johnson Consulting Group to represent me.
Thank you so much for all of your help in the sale…we really appreciate everything you did to get this deal closed. We truly enjoyed working with you and getting to know you.

Please accept this expression of my most sincere appreciation to you and your fine staff for the many hours expended on our behalf involving the sale of our 87 year old family firm…It was comforting to know that we entrusted the marketing of our business to an organization that exhibited to us that they cared as much as we did about locating the right purchaser for our business.
Johnson Consulting was a bright spot in the acquisition process of my funeral home…I would recommend that anyone interested in buying or selling use Johnson Consulting for the transaction if nothing else but for the expertise in their field.
