It was a Labor Day weekend, very short notice, when I called Bob Mears and asked if he could help me apply for a Restricted Health Condition exception. I needed to submit the request to CCL by the coming Tuesday so that I could re-admit a client whose needs had increased. Within 24 hours, Bob completed the documents I needed, explained my responsibilities and all I had to do was sign and submit everything. On my own, I think the job would’ve taken me a week. A CCL supervisor approved the exception 48 hours after I turned it in.
The enthusiastic word-of-mouth recommendations of our clients are the best form of advertising

Robert Mears was very meticulous and hands-on when preparing my Part B documents for licensing and a Regional Center Program Design. He came to my house and was always available to answer questions after the work was done. He even helped me find a Behavior Consultant!
It is with great pleasure and gratification that we are able to substantiate the value and knowledge of Bob Mears and RA Mears Consulting. Bob had been the consultant to the previous owners of our facilities since 2004. What had once been well-managed homes had begun to suffer from neglect by the owners. When we took over Bob guided us through a complete transition from a pair of disorganized facilities to a well-respected, well-organized pair of thriving homes.
Bob, thank you for your quick assistance. It is very much appreciated!
Just wanted to let you know that we got a call last night that our license has been approved. We should get the actual license next week. Thanks for your assistance!
I can't say enough nice things about Bob Mears and the service he provides. He has guided me through the entire application and appeal process, often offering friendly words of encouragement that were so needed. His response time is amazing and his wealth of regulation knowledge knows no bounds. I will definitely be using RA Mears Consulting for all my licensing needs; they've got a client for life!

Mr. Bob Mears came to my home after my LPA said I needed several documents and updates during my facility’s annual inspection. Mr. Mears completed everything I needed with his laptop and printer in a few hours. English is my second language and on my own I think the job would have taken me about a month. The time and frustration he saved me made it worth every penny.

I have been with Robert Mears since his business began. He’s extremely reliable and professional in his work and has never let me down. I don’t know what I would do without him!

I’ve known Bob Mears since he was an Evaluation Specialist at the San Diego Regional Center. I always thought he was a thorough and fair inspector of facilities. Since he’s started his consulting business, he’s written letters, applications, plans of operation and many other documents for my facilities. His work is always exceptional.
Client from 2005 until 2008
Bob Mears wrote our CCL and SDRC applications when we were awarded a grant to open a specialized Level 4 facility. He worked closely with us, using his knowledge of the Regional Center system, to write a budget for this negotiated rate facility. He is our “Go To” consultant.

Working with Robert has been a very smooth and stress-free experience! There are many details that need to be adhered to in order to open up an Adult Residential Facility and his guidance and diligence has allowed me to smoothly navigate through the state application process. In fact, my application was accepted upon the first review, and the remarkable thing about it is that we transacted all of our business via telephone and email. I am now on my way to officially opening the doors of Skye's the Limit Adult Residential Facility on March 1, 2013. Throughout this process I have had tremendous support from both my friends and family and now as my business progresses I know I can count on RA Mears Consulting to help with my future endeavors.

The services of RA Mears Consulting are "priceless," especially to the uninitiated. Licensing requirements are heavily regulated and often complex. Robert Mears simplified the entire process, both sections A & B. He is immediately responsive, assisting with necessary corrections within a matter of days. Corrections which, by the way, were accepted without question. I would recommend RA Mears Consulting to anyone, experienced or inexperienced, for guidance with the process. Myself being an attorney, I understand the need for competence and expertise in niche areas. RA Mears Consulting certainly stands out in this niche world of licensing.

I would like to express my gratitude to Bob Mears and his team for the excellent work and professionalism they showed in our facility application process. He truly guided and prepared us to provide our clients the best service possible. Thank you so much Robert for all your help.
I am so happy to complete all our applications. If I didn't meet you I might give up to have my own facility.
Thank you, Robert for all the help you’ve provided without you this dream wouldn’t have come true. You were the biggest instrument in support through all this process…. THANK YOU, FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT.
Robert, I was expecting a rather long and drawn out licensing process, based on our co-worker’s experience. The fact that it wasn’t is a testament to the service you provide.

H i Robert. Just want to share the good news with you that we have finally been vendored by RCOC. Thank you for your invaluable assistance.
I cannot express my gratitude towards RA Mears Consulting. At a time that I felt I just was not sure exactly what is needed to finish my program plan, Robert reassured me that he would be able to help. Besides being prompt and professional, he went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met. If ever in the future I need any consulting of any kind, RA Mears Consulting will always be my first choice. I highly recommend his services.

Bob, as always, we appreciate your valuable input about ARF’s. You have a way of clarifying things that makes sense to both of us and helps us to sort through the choices we have made. After all our conversations, I have recommended your business to friends and family. We both want to thank you for all your good advice and guidance and want to let you know that it is very much appreciated. We have also recommended your business to a couple of instructors that work for Relias Care and Compliance.
Thank you again for all your help in this matter.

I would like to thank you for your help. I can tell you put a tremendous amount of work into this application and I am grateful to you. I don't see how you are able to do all of this, plus your home visits.
RA Mears Consulting was truly amazing in their professionalism and their hands-on desire to help us through the licensing process. Without Robert Mears, we would not have been able to set up an ARF for our son, injured at age 20, and for others in desperate need for their brain-injured loved ones. Although remodeling the residence took over 2 1/2 years, Mr. Mears and his assistant were there for us throughout. They were always just a phone call away. They pulled us over a mountain of paperwork and forms with their expert assistance to make R Place Duarte a reality. Their website is chock-full of helpful resources and info to which we often refer.
We did it! We could not have done it without you.
