What Our Clients Think.

“Thank you for the outstanding service you and your company provided me in the selling of my school, a multi-million dollar transaction. I also want to thank you for finding buyers who are going to continue with the integrity and outstanding quality of education that our school has been known for over the years. I got the price I wanted, and you make the transaction effortless. Thanks again, Todd, for the effectiveness of you and your team at Spectra Advisors.”

Alan Shinall, Owner Int'l School of Skin & Nailcare

“Jeff and Todd’s experience and professionalism guided us through our first divestiture with minimum stress and confusion. They were able to quickly match our strengths to a number of potential buyers in their broad client base and facilitate the introductory process. They were able to rapidly get to a signed LOI and guide us through a lengthy due diligence process. In spite of regulatory turmoil in the industry, the partners at Spectra confidently led us through the process to the closing. They are both well- known and well respected in the industry, and their diverse professional contacts and combined years of experience facilitated what could, otherwise, have been a stressful and traumatic experience.”

Jane Mercer, CEO Career Institute of Florida

“Working with Spectra Advisors exceeded my expectations. They are very knowledgeable, respectful and professional. As the owner of a smaller organization I was concerned that it may be difficult to attract qualified buyers. They presented several experienced investment groups who I felt would continue to provide the level of education the students deserve. They patiently guided me through the entire divestiture process and concerns were always addressed in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Spectra Advisors.”

Carol Watson-Edge, CEO Casel Healthcare

“I hired Spectra for their expertise and exceptional track record in the industry and they proved to be the ideal representatives. They truly understand the education market and their experience and breadth of contacts within the investment community is unparalleled in the industry. They effectively managed my expectations throughout the process and ensured that my best interests were always the top priority. Thank you Spectra for a job well done.”

Stan Rome, CEO Healthcare Training Center

“With professionalism, extensive knowledge and expertise, Spectra Advisors carefully guided us through the acquisition process leaving us with a feeling of comfort in the knowing that our best interest was kept at heart. As a small woman owned organization, an integral part of our internal operation was kept close and held with tight reigns. Through gentle but direct guidance by Jeff and Todd, we were kept abreast of the entire process from beginning to end leaving us comforted with handing over our prized possession in its infancy. Thank you Jeff and Todd for being phenomenal at what you do with the external appearance of the entire process seeming effortless.”
