What our clients say
We’re proud of the work we’ve done for our clients and we’re even more proud of the great things they have to say about the services we’ve provided and the results we’ve delivered. Here are their experiences in their own words…
Over the last two years, I’ve looked at the idea of a change in business ownership and what options there were for the future. I started speaking with Brian and the SF&P team over the last year, and he helped me understand what the industry looked like, what options were out there, and he prepared me for what was to come.
During that time, SF&P was able to pair us with a buyer active in our market that was a perfect fit. Having them on my side really helped the transaction go smoother as there were a lot of emotions involved. It doesn’t have to be as complicated as you think, and having them as a trusted advisor on your side makes all the difference. This is something out of my wheelhouse and having them as a sounding board made the process much more seamless.
At the end of the day, we were able to go from an LOI to close within 60 days which shows how strong the systems SF&P has in place are. The SF&P team provided a tremendous amount of work that saved me and my wife major headaches while giving us the confidence to do a deal.
I have over 30 years of experience owning and growing my business. I had zero experience selling a multi-million dollar asset. SF&P is THE advisor in our space. They have an impeccable reputation and outstanding team of experts. I am quite certain that SF&P helped us earn the maximum for this once-in-a-lifetime transaction.

Thank you so much for everything that you did for myself, my family and my team. You helped me change many lives for the better through this deal. When we first met 4 years ago at a Nexstar super meeting, I had heard a lot of good things about you, and now I have experienced them first hand. SF&P Advisors helped me find the perfect partner for our platform, the Any Hour Group, which will be made up of many company brands across America.
You have been a true joy to work with, Fred. You have always been available to talk through the offers so we could make the best decision for myself, my wife, my business partner Jeremy and our managers. I also wanted to make the best choice for my employees and for the future companies that will partner with us. I actually found myself not wanting the process to come to an end because you have been so knowledgeable and helpful, and you’ve really listened to me to understand what our needs are.
You helped me buy-in 40 of my employees – actually, 41 counting Jeremy and myself. You should have seen every manager’s face when they received a good bonus plus shares in Any Hour Electric, Plumbing, Heating & Air upon closing this partnership with Knox Lane. The other platforms only wanted a few key managers to have shares, but I believe that all of my managers are key to our success, not just a few of them, and you helped convey that to the different PE groups that we interviewed with.
You took the time to learn what our goals were and you helped us align with Knox Lane, which truly is the perfect private equity partner. On top of that, you saved my team an enormous amount of time by helping us figure out our quality of earnings and our add backs. You are genuinely the most knowledgeable person that I know in M&A for service companies. Importantly, you’ve been respectful of my privacy and of my organizational chart by going directly to me. When it finally was time to get my team directly involved, every one of them enjoyed working with the personnel at SF&P Advisors throughout the process. Fred, thank you again for all of your hard work.

Fred, it’s been a couple of days since we closed our transaction and the reality of the event is finally starting to sink in. As you know, this has been a life-changing moment for my family and me, and now that it is done, I can comfortably say that all the hard work was worth it. I can also say that I don’t know if I would have been able to make it through this without you and your dedicated team of professionals.
The complexity, sophistication, nuances and stress of the transaction were much greater than I thought possible going in, and it was comforting having a partner like SF&P on our side! You were always available whenever I called and not once made me feel like I was interrupting you (although I know I probably was on many occasions).
Your professionalism, flexibility, consultation and humor were invaluable, and my brothers and I are forever grateful. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone considering a sale of their business, especially in the home services space. That is your ballpark, and you know it like no one else. Please extend my appreciation to Justin, Darcey, Ben, Adam and the rest of the SF&P team. You guys are the best.

I truly want to thank you and your staff for the support and dedication that was provided during our transaction with Turnpoint Services. From the beginning of the process until the end, you were by our side and always there for our questions. The professionalism extended and the information provided gave us the comfort and trust level we needed during the challenging negotiations and one of the most difficult decisions we ever had to make. I would highly recommend the team of SF&P Advisors for any merger or acquisition transaction that anyone is considering.
Darcey, I want you to know how much I appreciate you being on our team as we went through this journey. I truly believe without you I’m not sure it would have gotten done. You were the calm when I was freaking out, your approach to the other side was decisive and on point and you were always a pleasure to speak to. I’ve dreamed of and have been working on this day for 25+ years and you were a big part of making my dream come true. So thank you very much!
From the first day that I met the team at SF&P, I knew this was a group of people I wanted to work with to sell my HVAC company. I would highly, and truly, recommend SF&P to any HVAC owner looking to sell their business. From start to finish, it was nothing but professionalism, and they taught and prepared me to get maximum dollars for my business. It took a long time – be prepared to do what you need to do – but these guys are the best. They are the experts and know all the players looking to buy HVAC businesses. Again, very professional from start to finish, we couldn’t have done it without them, and we’re very the way they put things together. The bottom line is, I had one opportunity to maximize the sale of my business and I chose SF&P Advisors to represent me. And, to that end, it was one of the best decisions I ever made. I couldn’t be more grateful to Brian, Fred, Justin and the team at SF&P.
I cannot thank you all enough for your hard work, your expertise, and your ability to talk us off a ledge! You are a rock star team and we absolutely could not have done it without you! We’re happy to provide references and tell anyone who asks how great you guys are!

In the beginning, I considered doing the process without SF&P. That would have been a huge mistake. Compared to the initial offers, Fred and his team unlocked millions of upside for me, educated us on addbacks and provided real options that made the decision tough. Fortunately, with Fred’s guidance, I selected the right partner, with the right terms, and I could not be happier with the outcome.
