I have purchased over 35 new car stores in my career. In the beginning, I stayed away from brokers. Since I met the Stopnitzky family, I learned something from them...they are not looking for a sale like a broker, they are looking for a customer they can help to make an educated transaction. Their honesty, integrity and attention to detail are second to none. After doing several deals with them, I now know they only do deals one way…that is a win for the buyer as well as a win for the seller. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a car dealership.
Performance Brokerage Services, and working with Jesse Stopnitzky in particular, has been a seamless process. We have felt that they helped facilitate this transaction in a professional manner, but also allowed us – as the buyer – to ensure that we got to know the seller on a personal level. By doing this, we were able to ensure the financial aspects of the transaction were handled while also understanding the intangibles.
It was a pleasure working with George Chaconas. His persistence, attention to detail, and professionalism all contributed to our deal consummating in a timely and controlled manner. It is refreshing to work with someone who is responsive to a client’s needs 24/7. I look forward to working with you and your team in the future. If you are in the market to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson or PowerSports dealership, I highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.
I would like to thank Performance Brokerage Services for their professionalism, expertise, follow-up, and responsiveness in our buy-sell transaction. They were extremely helpful in consummating the deal. If you are considering buying or selling a marine/boat dealership, please consider them.
This is the second transaction that was completed with Dan Argiro and the Performance Brokerage Team. Dan has been excellent to work with as a trusted advisor, and the team at Performance Brokerage Services is first class. Dan was instrumental in finding the right buyer for our dealerships, and he was always available when we needed him. He has sold our entire portfolio of dealerships, but if I had one more to sell, I would call Dan without thinking twice about it. I am now looking forward to enjoying retirement and spending time with my family.
Pat Albero of Performance Brokerage Services reached out with an opportunity to expand our John Deere dealership business. From day one, Pat was fantastic to work with and very attentive. I certainly would not hesitate to do business with Performance Brokerage again in the future. I would highly recommend Pat Albero, Dan Argiro, and the team at Performance Brokerage.

We charge a success fee only, paid at closing and after you are paid.
How Do You Maximize Value?
The sale of your business is the last opportunity for the assets to generate income for you. We work hard to maximize the value on your behalf.
Earnings Adjustments: We adjust the earnings to reflect discretionary and one-time expenses, which enhances the representation. We factor the upside potential, a host of intangible variables, and the market trends that further influence the value.
Asset Adjustments: Accounting for accelerated depreciation, assets that are not booked, and varying valuation methods, the value of your assets may be significantly higher than book value.
Expert Negotiations: We negotiate on your behalf from a position of strength as industry experts with local market familiarity, utilizing an unmatched amount of data from national transactions across our 10 offices.
The Deal Flow: Creating a competitive environment among multiple buyers ensures you receive fair market value. Buyer’s decision to buy is validated knowing others are also interested. A sense of urgency and fear of loss are introduced, expediting the process and ensuring timely performance and continued fair negotiations.
How Long is the Process?
The sales cycle from engagement to closing ranges on average from 6-8 months. How do you expedite the process? Early preparation of your dealership for a sale. Establish an asking price consistent with market conditions. Maintain clean books and records. Involve specialized attorneys and accountants. Utilize an experienced dealership broker to identify a unique and motivated purchaser, and to help you avoid pitfalls and delays.
