TESTIMONIALS

Early in 2018, we began searching for the right firm to help us sell our private pay home care agency in western Massachusetts.  We talked to a lot of people and considered a lot of angles.  We selected Mertz Taggart because Cory is highly knowledgeable, produces volume, has a process and a plan for marketing the business, and finally he is calm (very important) and thoughtful.  We just closed on our business and couldn’t be happier that we chose Mertz Taggart.  Most importantly when all is said and done:  Mertz Taggart got us significantly more money than anyone had ever discussed or offered.  Enough said.

Kelly and Curt Hudson

I would highly recommend Cory Mertz to anyone considering selling/buying a Health Care Company or Facility. His professionalism, knowledge, and experience are second to none. Cory will get you results and follow them through until the deal is closed. I have worked with many excellent brokers but Cory is by far the best.

David Sullivan, Senior Partner, Transitive Group, LLC

It is hard for me to find the words to describe what it meant for me to have Cory Mertz representing the sell of my company. From the first contact with Cory, he has been amazing in assisting me with the sell of Trinity. His professionalism, dedication, caring, and vast array of knowledge was the only reason this sell was completed. I could have never survived this without the assistance of Cory Mertz. I will always recommend Mertz Taggart to any owner who is considering selling or buying a home health care agency

Leola Wright, Owner, Trinity Home Care Services, Inc.

“We couldn’t be happier with this transaction.  We hired Mertz Taggart because of their industry expertise and relationships.  They ran a highly confidential and competitive process that was organized, timely and personalized. They found the ideal buyer and maximized the value for us. Mertz Taggart certainly exceeded our expectations. We have worked over the last 16 years to develop effective recovery programs for our patients and to innovate treatment for underserved populations such as those incarcerated through one of the nation’s first in-house opioid treatment programs in a state detention center. We feel confident that BayMark will support and enhance our mission while maintaining the highest level of care for our patients and improving accessibility to life-saving treatment.”

Evan Baldwin, M.D., CEO, Recovery Services of New Mexico

I had the pleasure of working with Cory Mertz when he helped broker the sale of Women In New Recovery/WINR. Cory is an excellent negotiator, working well with the buyers and managing that relationship throughout the sale process. Due to some special circumstances, our sale process from vetting potential buyers to close had to be completed in an unusually short period of time. Cory was always pleasant to work with and was able to nudge, cajole, coerce, and lean on the buyers in a way that helped them to realize that the shortened deadline had to be met.

Patricia Henderson, CEO, Women in New Recovery

Cory was my Broker in handling the sale of my Home Health & Hospice Agency. He was very knowledgable, honest and considerate in his efforts and worked very hard to get this sale for me. I was very pleased with the effort Cory put out from the beginning carrying through to the end of this transaction. I would highly recommend him.

Ann Sonnier, Administrator, AAA Home Health & Hospice

As an investor in home health care companies, I’ve had the change to work on several transactions with Cory. He’s resourceful, well networked, and highly effective in managing the sale process of healthcare companies. I would recommend him for a healthcare services company seeking an advisor to manage the sale of their business.

Michael McGinn, Managing Director, Prince Capital Partners

I recently had the good fortune. Of working with Cory Mertz as I began the process of selling my private homecare in western Massachusetts .
The knowledge and support that Cory provided to me throughout the process was exceptional and made my sale quick , stress‐ less , and profitable. I encourage anyone who needs direction as they begin this process to go directly to Mertz/Taggart.

Nancy Magri, Home Health Solutions

We engaged Mertz Taggart to manage a competitive yet confidential process and they exceeded our expectations. They helped us evaluate all the offers, and select the buyer that was right for us. More importantly, they kept us focused through the due diligence to a successful closing. We couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend Mertz Taggart.
