Industry Experience

Service Contractors

HVAC, Plumbing, Electrical contractor businesses require a thorough understanding of licensing and revenue mix to ensure success.

B2B Services

These businesses are asset-light, and it is important to understand the stickiness of the customers historically as well as whether the services are mission critical or somewhat discretionary.

Medical Aesthetics

Demand for these services is growing rapidly, but it is critical to know which services have the highest reoccuring revenue. Understanding how the margins compare to the industry, and spotting the potential for deferred revenue are among many ways we help you assess these businesses.

Home Health and Home Care

Demographic tailwinds are strong in this industry, but understanding the challenges in maintaining staffing levels and gaining a thorough understanding of payor risk are critical.

What Our Clients Say

“Heather Endresen is an outstanding loan expert who provided exceptional support and guidance during our company’s acquisition process. Her dedication, professionalism, and expertise in the small business lending market were invaluable in securing the funding we needed, and she was especially helpful after our loan closed and we faced challenging times during COVID. Heather has proven to be a reliable advocate and resource for us, and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking financing solutions.”

Tim Ludwig
Co-Founder of Majority Search

“From the first call with Heather we knew she was our preferred loan provider. Her understanding of the SBA nuances and the business model of our target were on an entirely different level from others. After the acquisition she supported our business multiple times, with a PPP loan, a line of credit, and everything in between. When other searchers ask me who they should look to for financing I often tell them to stop wasting time and ask Heather.”
