Bayside Auto Group Purchases Leckner Ford & CDJR of King George, Virginia

Performance Brokerage Services, a new car and Harley-Davidson dealership broker is pleased to announce the sale of Leckner Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and Leckner Ford in King George, Virginia from Carl Leckner to Geoff Wanamaker and Bayside Automotive Group.

Geoff Wanamaker, President of Bayside Automotive Group, owns many dealerships throughout Maryland including Kia, Nissan, Chevrolet, Toyota and Harley Davidson. Geoff wanted to expand the presence of Bayside Automotive Group into Virginia with these two strategic acquisitions. Wanamaker intends to relocate the Ford dealership to build a brand new, state-of-the-art facility.

Following the sale, Wanamaker commented, “George Chaconas was the right person to help put together our recent acquisitions. During the difficult times, he was the voice of reason and helped keep the deals moving forward. Without his personal involvement, these deals would not have happened. It was a dream of mine to one day own a Ford dealership. I want to thank George for helping to make this lifelong dream come true.”

The dealerships will operate under the new names of Bayside Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and Bayside Ford in King George, Virginia.

George C. Chaconas, the exclusive agent for this transaction and the Southeast Partner for Performance Brokerage Services commented, “It was a pleasure working with such a well-reputable group as Bayside Automotive. I thank Carl Leckner for the business and wish Geoff Wanamaker much success with his acquisition of Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and subsequently his dream Ford dealership.”
