TESTIMONIALS

What our clients have to say

We take great pride in building enduring relationships with our clients that bring them opportunity, success, and peace of mind. We understand that our clients look to us to provide a level of leadership and trust that will help them make good decisions for their customers, their communities, and their families.

The importance of shared values

In David Rabenhorst’s words, it was very important for him to work with someone who shared his core values, and would at all times have his best interests at heart. We’ve taken great pride in always being there for David, and for guiding him through the sale of his funeral home business. It’s the kind of trust we strive to earn from all of our clients.

A partnership among friends

Rick Allnutt discusses his 20-year relationship with Johnson Consulting and how it evolved into a genuine friendship over that time. When Rick decided it was time to sell his funeral home business, he knew he could rely on our “honesty, knowledge, and experience” to ensure that the buyer checked all the boxes for Rick and his family.

We cover a lot of ground so you don’t have to

It’s been a pleasure to work with Brad and Trish Hansen. Through the years, we’ve provided support in various facets of their funeral home business. The Hansens have relied heavily on our Management Services and Performance Tracker software to help them operate more strategically while managing their continuous growth.

There for you from start to finish

Laurens Fish first turned to Johnson Consulting for help with his funeral home’s accounting needs. When Laurens decided to sell his business a few years later, he knew that he could rely on our expertise to guide him and his partners through the complex process. This “start to finish” approach is central to everything we do for our clients.

To operate a business you need the numbers

Tom Starks of Starks Family Funeral Homes & Cremation Services shares how JCG took his business’s financial operations to the next level. This included preparing his children to take over the family business as part of a comprehensive succession plan. For us, that was all part of a relationship based on friendship and trust.

We appreciate your sensitivity and understanding in regards to the difficult decisions we faced in choosing a successor to continue our family legacy.

During the entire process I was very comfortable with the professional yet personal way details were handled and now that we’re finished I am very confident in the results.

When we decided to take the next step for our business, there was only one company we considered to help us, Johnson Consulting. We have known the Johnson family for years and our respect and trust for them runs deep. Their team was excellent at keeping everything on track through closing and we greatly appreciate their expertise throughout.

Randy Shoedinger

Without question, I highly recommend the Johnson Consulting group and will always appreciate the initial help to get started from Tom Johnson.  In addition, Jake Johnson, Karen McCurdy, Simon Wong and especially David Adams all contributed to a smooth process. David Adams led the team that got us through the finish line.

I am not much of a wordsmith, but I have been with Johnson for over 10 years and that is a testament in and of itself.

We have used JCG for our annual strategic planning process for the past five years. It has been incredibly beneficial aligning us with our vision and focus to be poised for continued success. They really do a thorough job of leading this process. If you are not doing this I highly recommend you do so.

Busch Cremation – Funeral – Pre-Planning

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.

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.

Jay McHenry

McHenry Funeral Homes

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.

Blair Nelsen

Nelsen Family Funeral Services

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.

Kevin Daniels

Daniels Family Funeral Services

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.

Jay D. Dodds

The Signature Group

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.

Jim Larkin

Larkin & Garcia Funeral Care

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.

Charles S. Cho

Garden Oaks Funeral Home

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.

Jim Grantham

Don Grantham Funeral Home

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.

Robert H. Bell

Austin and Bell Funeral Home

In a time of unprecedented change and challenges for our profession, the Johnson Consulting Group has been invaluable in helping us clearly identify problems and concerns and have helped us develop a clear vision and plan for our future success.
