It was more than 25 years ago when Jerry Peterson and Kathy Gergen-Mandel decided it was time to start a brokerage firm that had never existed before. One that puts the client first and emphasizes professionalism and integrity. One that believes in the importance of quality customer service. One that is dynamic and evolves as the chiropractic industry evolves. One that values the hard work and dedication of chiropractors – for their patients, their staff, and their communities.
As an experienced businesswoman, attorney, and founder/co-owner of Schroeder & Mandel (an injury law firm), Kathy had been in the front row seat when her spouse bought a chiropractic practice. She was less than impressed with the lack of rhyme, reason, and respect for chiropractors who were buying and selling practices. It was time to take this “insider experience” and stand up for the chiropractic community. Jerry, a businessman focusing on selling chiropractic equipment and setting up chiropractic businesses, wanted to do everything in his power to help chiropractors be successful in business. Together, they formed Practice Brokers, Inc. to make a meaningful and positive difference in the chiropractic community. In 2001, Heather Conrad joined the team and soon became the business appraisal specialist. Heather has since appraised hundreds of practices, and she prides herself on the accuracy of her work.
Today, our experienced team represent clients throughout the United States. Together, Jerry, Kathy, and Heather offer more than 75 years of cumulative knowledge and experience in brokering chiropractic businesses.
Unlike any other brokers, we offer red-carpet service that is comprehensive, professional, respectful, systematized, and personalized to each client. We attribute our success to our passion for doing what’s right for both parties in a transaction, by doing what we can do to get you the true value of your practice and ensuring a fair price for the buyer.
