Our dealership was and always is our baby. To say we were a picky seller is an understatement. There were so many qualitative elements to our deal: our valued employees, our relationships with our business partners, and the very important element of winning, on both sides of the table, for both seller and buyer. Only after accomplishing all these elements and more could my partner and I feel like we were walking out the front door. Moshe, Jason and Jesse listened first, then leveraged their many years of experience and connections within the industry finding us the perfect match, willing and motivated to honor our commitments to our employees, our customers and our community. They never gave up or asked that we compromise our wishes, instead they worked tirelessly to make a request a reality. Both my partner, Laurie Bush and myself, will not hesitate to recommend Performance and their team of trusted counselors. Simply put, they are by far the best at what they do and more importantly, how they do it.

Having acquired a Harley-Davidson dealership from George Chaconas in the recent past, and with my father having worked with Performance Brokerage Services over many years, I reached out to George to help us purchase a local Polaris franchise only. George and Courtney Bernhard did an excellent job on helping us work through the negotiations and the closing process to purchase Van’s Motorsports with Polaris to relocate to our existing dealership. I want to thank George and Courtney very much for another successful deal to help us continue to grow, and look forward to working with them again in the near future!

If I had to rate my experience with Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services on a scale of 1 to 10, she would receive a 100! She was very professional, helpful, and treated me with honesty and respect. She worked between the buyer and me, and we came to a fair price for both sides. I will admit, when Courtney first called me about having a buyer for my business, I kind of blew her off and told her to call me next week, as I thought it was a scam. The next week she called back, and I was still extremely apprehensive. You don't just get a call from people wanting to buy your business every day! From that point on, Courtney did everything. She dealt with the title work, the manufacturer approval - she did it all! Again, this transaction was fast, painless, and professional. I can't say enough good about Courtney and Performance Brokerage Services.

For years, I have known of George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services as the highest volume automotive dealership brokerage firm in the country. George introduced me to a great opportunity in Leckner Nissan of Ellicott City, Maryland that he was hired to sell by a receivership. It was an unusual buy-sell through the court, though George was very professional and diligent in helping us acquire the dealership. I look forward to working with him in the future and I would highly recommend George & PBS when considering buying or selling!

From the first call I made to Jason Stopnitzky, I knew we had a connection. Once we put the deal on paper, he actually worked the deal, and made it all come together the way I thought it should. It’s people like Jason that make this world a better place. Thank you to Jason and his team at Performance Brokerage Services for making this a great situation on my end, and a great deal for the buyer with this Nissan franchise. I appreciate all they did to put this deal together and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to sell their franchise.

George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services contacted me about several Nissan stores he was hired to sell in receivership. These stores were selling through a limited auction process that needed court approval. The buying and negotiating process was much more difficult than dealing with a selling dealer. George did a great job communicating with me on a regular basis and helping navigate a very difficult purchase. I am very satisfied and happy with his industry expertise and professionalism. I would highly recommend George and PBS if you are considering buying or selling!

I recently hired the services of Performance Brokerage and Paul Kechnie. Paul was professional, ethical and thorough during the process of selling our dealership. I was extremely pleased with the results. He helped us achieve the price and terms we desired. I would definitely recommend Paul!

I have known Paul Kechnie from Performance Brokerage Services for over 20 years. We were in the same 20 group for over a decade. When we were looking to acquire another dealership, I engaged Paul's services to find the perfect store. As expected, Paul found us that store in a short period of time. Paul was professional, ethical and extremely helpful throughout the process. Whether you’re buying or selling, I highly recommend Paul and Performance.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Paul Kechnie for a number of years, dating back to his days as a 20 group Moderator. In the past, I have also had the opportunity to work with Performance Brokerage Services and their partners. I recently received a call from Chrysler/ FCA to step into a transaction that was already underway. FCA was exercising their right of first refusal and wanted me to purchase the dealership. Paul was the broker handling the transaction. Paul was very helpful in managing the delicate process of moving both myself and the seller to a timely close without any issues. As in the past, Paul and Performance Brokerage Services proved themselves to be an asset in a dealership transaction.

When Paul Kechnie entered my office a few months ago, I recognized him as a fellow former General Motors dealer. Although I wasn’t looking to sell my store, Paul had a wonderful buyer that was looking to expand in my immediate area. In a short period of time, we struck a deal and committed to the process of selling my store. Throughout the process, I found Paul and his buyers to be professional and acted with integrity.
