TESTIMONIALS

Performance Brokerage Services are a pleasure to work with. Their knowledge of the auto industry and deal structure is impressive. Anytime we have a broker that adds value and is focused on the finish line, they are an asset to our team. We look forward to working with them again in the near future.

Before my father’s passing, he worked with George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage on prior buy-sells, so it was a no-brainer to continue that personal relationship. Knowing that I wanted to continue to grow and enter the Tennessee market, George introduced me to Tim Duff, the Dealer Principal of Earl Duff Subaru just outside of Knoxville. The dealership is a brand-new, image-compliant facility, and had been in the family for years. George was very involved throughout the entire transaction, and I thank him and his team for an excellent outcome with many more to come!

I want to thank Performance Brokerage Services for all the hard work they put forth in the completion of our buy/sell with Duell’s Evansville Kia. Specifically, the efforts by Paul Kechnie and Mark Shackelford made the process smooth, transparent, and led to the successful transition between companies. As you know, there are many hurdles to overcome during a buy/sell. Manufacturer applications, asset purchase agreements, property inspections, as well as daily communication between parties are all intricate parts of a successful change of ownership. Paul and Mark provided regular updates, necessary access, and completed requests in a manner that kept the transaction private from frontline dealership employees. Handling sensitive information is vital in a buy/sell, and they did it successfully. Lou Fusz is poised for future growth, and we look forward to working together with Performance Brokerage Services on future transactions.”

“Over many years, I had been receiving emails and direct mail from George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. I was considering retiring and I decided to call him. He immediately visited and we hit it off. I hired George based on his extensive experience, transparency, and honesty. George was able to identify the best buyer, Dobbs Equity Partners. Many thanks to George for his tenacity and perseverance. I am incredibly happy and starting to enjoy retirement! If you are like me and considering selling out, I would certainly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.”

George was very professional, efficient, and instrumental in helping negotiate the transaction. It was a pleasure working with George and we look forward to our next acquisition with him and Performance.”

We have worked with Jason and Moshe Stopnitzky and their team at Performance Brokerage Services on several opportunities recently. Their upfront and transparent way of communicating is a breath of fresh air from the usual. We have been able to get down to the important pros and cons of every offering very quickly, enabling us to identify the right fit for us, without investing substantial time or money. We appreciate the partnership and more importantly the relationship we have built with your team.

In all my business dealings for over 40 years, I have never had a more rewarding and professional experience than what Performance Brokerage Services afforded me. We formed a lifelong friendship and bond. To anyone who is considering the purchase or sale of a dealership, you are getting the most knowledgeable and professional auto brokerage team in the country.

George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services reached out to me on a referral from a fellow 20-group member and long-time friend who recently sold their dealerships. We recently relocated our Subaru dealership to a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility and had been seeing successful growth. The dealership was a very attractive opportunity for the new buyers in a desirable and growing market. I did not have a succession plan and had no interest in buying another dealership. I had other ventures to pursue, and the timing was perfect. George brought me a very attractive offer from a highly qualified auto group, Sutherlin Automotive, that already had locations in the Southeast. Even with some of the last-minute issues at closing, it was a seamless transaction overall. George was able to help mediate myself, along with my attorneys and the buyers, in liquidating my family’s biggest asset after decades of ownership. I would like to thank George and his team for making this a reality and would highly recommend him to help navigate your family’s legacy.
