Join the numerous CEOs who worked with us to create successful exit plans in 2022. W
"When I decided this past summer that I may want to sell my company, I already knew that Cat was the person to speak with. Her contacts in the HOA industry built through a 25-year tenure are matched by few people and those with contacts don’t have the technical ability to help a management company “go to market. The process is long, the emotions are high, and the end result was better than I expected. I found a company that was the best fit for me and I’m now part of the leadership team of the company that acquired my baby".
" Strategy 1-2-3 has a vast network of colleagues from decades in this industry. Her ability to draw from that experience and knowledge in every aspect of the HOA world proved invaluable. Hiring Cat was the best business decision we ever made. We only regret not calling Strategy 1-2-3 sooner. Whether you are looking to increase revenue, improve workflow, plan an exit or simply to effect some changes that will have a positive impact, STOP and look no further".
"The first step to your exit strategy is planning and organizing. Cat will walk you through each step and organize along the way while you continue to run your successful company. She will communicate with you at any time of the day. She is an inside leader in the community association world and her knowledge is power. Her heart is big, but her vision is bigger. Partnering with Cat enabled us to have an additional member of our leadership team. We truly were a team. Her reputation and our result speak for themselves".
"Cat’s knowledge, thoroughness, professionalism, and support through the intricacies of our company’s acquisition provided a sense of calm confidence during a pivotal life event for us. She used every metric to ensure our business valuation showed our company’s true value to potential acquirers and was there every step of the way, ensuring we completed due diligence items on time, and our needs for the future were met. She was someone we could trust and provided reassurance our best interest was being protected".
"Strategy 123 allowed me to define the parameters that were important as the founder and owner. Cat educated me on exit planning and managed the process from valuation to closing beautifully, never overwhelming me with next steps but always communicating. She carried the greater burden of preparation and presentation. Her advice was respectful and focused on the best outcome for me. I know full well that my partnership with Strategy 123 was a substantial contributor to this success"!
"Collaborating with Cat has been invaluable. Her industry knowledge and experience was and is instrumental in her ability to guide practices that result in greater efficiencies for not only my business, but my clients’ as well. Often times our discussions led to discoveries which is not something that is easy to find with most business partners. I will continue to seek her insight for as long as she’ll offer it".
"Cat knows the community management business. As a former management executive, she knows what works from a tactical perspective and from her years as a senior level banker she knows what works from a strategic level. Her bank experience also gave her an inside look at what worked for individual companies and helped me succeed by sharing best practices which increased profits and many times resulted in a competitive advantage. In her numerous roles at Community Association Institute she also gained a unique understanding of the industry from a national perspective. Cat is a positive person that is easy to work with as well as a clear communicator. She goes above and beyond to be of service. When I have an important business decision to make I call Cat for her insight".
"A good friend and fellow CEO introduced me to Cat Carmichael and Strategy 123 just about two months ago, and the relationship has been nothing short of exceptional, in truth, her monthly retainer, based upon the received value, is the best money I have ever spent.
Cat's far-reaching network and distinct industry knowledge have not only provided us with an in-depth view of our industry but also exposed us to potential strategic partnerships. Cat and Strategy 123's ability to pivot to our needs, have made her an integral part of achieving our projected growth goals for 2019. “
