Testimonials from Clients
I have had the good fortune over the last 15 years to work on and close hundreds of dealership transactions (auto, cycle, and heavy-truck) throughout the United States. Many of those transactions involved brokers or consultants who brought the parties together, facilitated negotiations, and helped with shepherding the deal over the occasional rough spots on the way to a closing. I have worked with George Chaconas, of Performance Brokerage Services, on numerous transactions. George is a high energy guy with a passion for the business. He is competent, professional, and diligent in the representation of his clients, and a valuable catalyst for moving deals to a successful closing. I heartily recommend George at Performance Brokerage Services.
Robert A. Bass, Attorney at Bass Sox Mercer, Tallahassee, FL
Having sold my prior business through an investment banker, I knew the value of having an expert in the industry sell my Harley-Davidson dealership. I contacted George Chaconas from Performance Brokerage Services because I constantly get notifications of other Harley-Davidson transactions that George has completed nationwide. When George met with me in Santa Fe for the first time, I knew I could trust him to sell my dealership. Throughout the transaction, George was responsive, professional, and most importantly, ethical. The deal was as smooth as could be. Thank you, George!
Danny Spurlock, Seller of Santa Fe Harley-Davidson, New Mexico
In 2009, I tried to sell my dealership with George’s help, but the economy collapsed so we took the dealership off the market. George continued to guide me over the past six years since I couldn’t commit to retiring just yet. I loved being a Harley-Davidson dealer, it was in my blood. I had been riding for decades and owned Black Widow Harley-Davidson with my family for 11 years. As the market started to recover in 2014, George began to reach out to me more often regarding current market conditions, the value of my dealership and meeting at the national Harley-Davidson conferences. With his persistence, industry knowledge and expertise at deal structuring, George found the perfect buyer for my store. During this very emotional transaction and transition, there were many times I wanted to throw in the towel, but George was a pro at keeping me on task and focused on the end game – my retirement. I truly appreciate George’s guidance, understanding, and patience throughout the process. Look no further than George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services when you are considering selling or buying a Harley-Davidson dealership.
Irene and Armand Pinard, Sellers of Black Widow Harley-Davidson of Port Charlotte, Florida
Since selling my car dealership in 2014, I have been interested in becoming a Harley-Davidson dealer. George Chaconas shared with me a few dealership opportunities, ultimately purchasing Black Widow Harley-Davidson in Port Charlotte, FL. The dealership was a great fit for me. Having family in Florida, I could relocate my wife and family there. It was a great chance to take the dealership to next level through marketing and special events. It was a very long and difficult process to close the transaction, coupled with the seller’s emotional ties to the business. With George’s help in managing the deal and the seller’s expectations, we were able to reach a closing. I appreciate George’s efforts and experience in holding the deal together during some very difficult obstacles. I would recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone looking to buy or sell a dealership.
Bert King, Buyer of Black Widow Harley-Davdidson of Port Charlotte, Florida
After receiving numerous solicitations and tombstone announcements from George Chaconas, I finally decided to give him a call. George flew out to Vermont to meet with me and my team so that we could discuss the buy/sell market conditions. We expressed to George that we would be interested in a lifestyle store in the Southwest. George found for us exactly what we had been looking for when he brought to us Santa Fe Harley-Davidson. If you are looking to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership, I highly recommend George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services.
David Pearson, President of a Multi-States, Harley-Davidson Dealership Group
I had owned Heritage Cycles Harley-Davidson for 17 years and although the dealership was not on the market and I was not ready to retire, George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services introduced me to a buyer who was extremely qualified and a perfect strategic fit. George brought me an offer from the buyer that I couldn’t refuse and after meeting and spending time with the buyer, I knew that he had the background, experience and ability to take Heritage Cycles to the next level. Selling a family business can be an emotional process, especially when it has been in the family for 34 years. George made the sale of Heritage Cycles Harley-Davidson a very smooth transaction, and I am confident that the buyer will continue the legacy my brother began in 1980 and I continued for the past 17 years.
Dianne Biancanello, Seller of Heritage Harley-Davidson of Fort Walton Beach, Florida
I contacted George Chaconas to explore the buy/sell market after I had received numerous announcements of Harley-Davidson dealerships he had sold. Located only an hour from our current operation, George brought to my family the perfect strategic acquisition opportunity with Eagle’s Nest Harley-Davidson in Lathrop, California. We felt that George genuinely had our best interests in mind and thank him for sharing the opportunity with our family and new partner.
Andrew Westbrook, Harley-Davidson, Sacramento, California

Thank you George Chaconas, for helping to facilitate my purchase of NewRoc Harley Davidson in New Rochelle, NY. Your excellent response time and attention to the progress of the sale was very much appreciated. You have a great work ethic! Hopefully, in the future we can put another one together.
Cooper Friend, NewRoc Harley-Davidson, New Rochelle, New York
George, I can’t thank you and Performance Brokerage enough. You guys are certainly the leaders in the Industry for buying and selling Harley-Davidson dealerships. Even though you had no financial interest in our deal, you always had time for me with your advisement on our latest purchase of Dean’s Harley-Davidson. Thank you and if I can ever do anything for you at one of our 3 dealerships please don’t hesitate.
Tommy Hannum, Hannum’s Harley-Davidson Group, Pennsylvania
We spoke with George Chaconas about our desire to buy another Harley-Davidson dealership and grow our operation. When George brought to us Stone Mountain Harley-Davidson, we were thankful that he remembered our discussion. George remained involved through the entire transaction and was a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend George and Performance Brokerage Services.
Rodin Younessi, Multiple Harley-Davidson Group
George Chaconas contacted me last year to make me aware that he had heard rumors and speculation that I was considering selling my dealership. I had heard of George as I had received his frequent emails and mailers with Harley-Davidson dealerships for sale, recent transactions, client testimonials and buy/sell market conditions. I invited George to meet with me offsite to discuss selling my Harley-Davidson dealership. George and I built a great rapport where I felt comfortable to hire him to market and sell my dealership. George and Performance Brokerage Services created a very professional and thorough marketing prospectus showcasing my dealership beautifully, identified numerous qualified buyers in a short period of time, and successfully negotiated a win-win sale to Sheehy Auto Stores. George was highly professional, diligent and very helpful to me during the buy/sell process. George will become more than just your broker, he will become your friend. If you are considering selling I would highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.

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.
Mark Tkach, CEO for RideNow.com
When you make the decision to sell your dealership, you want a broker that is as focused on his job as you are on your business. You want a broker who will deliver the same quality that you have delivered to your customers. You want a broker that will work harder than you or any of your staff. That person is George Chaconas. The key to running a successful business is to listen to what your customer wants. George did exactly that. Filtered out the tire kickers, brought real candidates and always had my best interest at heart. George’s communication skills are above reproach. Selling is an intense time and you not only want to know that your broker is doing his job, but what is he doing and how is he doing it. Truthfully, I have no idea how one person can have as much energy, communicate as effectively, steadily and with clarity as George does. He didn’t call to shoot the breeze, he called with updates and a plan. George made the whole process seamless, understood my goals – not a fire sale – and delivered in record time. I could not be happier. Thanks George and Performance Brokerage Services!
Dan and Shirley Stern, House of Thunder Harley-Davidson, California
The experience with George Chaconas was one of complete professional satisfaction. As a franchised automobile and a motorcycle dealer since 1983, I have bought and sold over 10 businesses. George was as great at his job as anyone I have ever done business with. He brought me only qualified buyers with business experience and financial ability to strike a deal with. We were also able to keep the sale almost completely under wraps until the closing. He absolutely maintained confidentiality. If you are looking to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership, you should trust George Chaconas to represent you. He will maximize the dollar and minimize the time your business is on the market. George knows and understands what the buyer and seller are trying to do, and helps all parties achieve that goal.
Ricky Kelley, Harley-Davidson of Columbia, Tennessee
George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services was introduced to us by an existing Harley-Davidson dealer to help us learn more about purchasing our first dealership. He was very educational and knowledgeable about the buying process. He shared with us his very vast experience and industry expertise to facilitate and assist us in acquiring Kutter Harley-Davidson of Janesville and Monroe Wisconsin. We sincerely appreciate George’s tenacity, persistence and commitment to help us become a Harley-Davidson dealer and we look forward to working with George to help us buy our second store in the near future. We would highly recommend using George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services!
Eric Pomeroy, Kutter and Boardtrackers Harley-Davidson, Wisconsin
George Chaconas was responsive throughout the entire transaction, providing frequent updates and endless guidance. George Chaconas quickly identified a qualified buyer and worked the transaction until the closing. The entire transaction was quick, fair and simple. It was a pleasure being represented by Performance Brokerage Services. Thank you for your dedication, George.
Sandy Broach & Doug Guynn, Sellers from Florence, South Carolina
Having worked with George Chaconas in the past, I knew what to expect when he brought this opportunity to me: honesty, integrity and professionalism. If you are looking to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership, I would highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.
Charlie Cole, President of a Multi-Harley-Davidson Dealership Group
After bringing the potential buyer and seller together, George Chaconas did an excellent job assisting in the negotiation of the terms agreed to for the sale. He kept all parties informed of the status of the transaction and did an excellent job facilitating the closing of the sale of the business and the subsequent sale of the real estate.
James H. Albright, President of Blue Ridge Harley-Davidson, North Carolina
We are very happy with the effort George Chaconas put in to help us make our deal happen. Many times in an acquisition the broker can get in the way and stall a deal. George knew when to input himself and when to back off which made it a very pleasant experience. He knew both players well and what was important to both, which enabled us to complete the deal very quickly. We were happy with the end result which was a quick, easy transaction. Thanks George.
Bob Rubin, CFO of a Multi-States, Harley-Davidson Dealership Group
I have had the pleasure of working with George Chaconas in my most recent purchase of my 5th Harley-Davidson store. George is thorough and patient. He listened to our needs in securing a new business venture and worked tirelessly to take us smoothly from start to finish. He conducted himself as a partner in the deal and I feel he had a focus on the best interest of my company. I look forward to the possibility of continuing to work with him in the future.
Scott Fischer, A Multi-States, Harley-Davidson Dealership Group

George handled the sale of our business in a professional and timely manner from start to finish. Understanding the ultimate goal of putting together a mutually beneficial deal, George will continue to look after your best interests with full transparency. Thank you, George, for a job well done and for your friendship.
Shelton Davis, A Multi-States, Harley-Davidson Dealership Group
George began the sale of my dealership, Streit’s Motorsports, with a cold call and accomplished what is usually impossible…he actually got me to talk with him when most such calls last about ten seconds. True salesmanship! George was exceptionally responsive with his follow up. Through the challenges we faced such as manufacturers’ approval and real estate encroachment, George remained highly motivated and very helpful, educating both buyer and seller as to what is customary during a buy/sell. George helped me and my family to prepare for the next phase of life and retirement. George and Performance Brokerage Services are true professionals in every way. They will get the job done!
Michael Jones, Seller of Streit’s Motorsports
George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services did everything they said that they would do. George found the perfect buyer for my store who was willing to purchase my facility. This was a key factor in allowing me to retire, and I am thankful for all that George did to assist with the sale of my Harley-Davidson dealership.
Coweta Harrison, Seller of Clayton County Harley-Davidson, Georgia
George Chaconas helped to sell my two Harley-Davidson dealerships, and I could not have asked for a better adviser in my corner. George is an expert at his craft. He is timely, responsive, knowledgeable, and most importantly, honest and ethical. George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services should be your first and only phone call if you want to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership. They are the best in the business!
Thomas Noto, Seller of Electric City Harley-Davidson and Noto’s H-D Shop, Pennsylvania
I frequently received inquiries and notices regarding recent transactions of Harley-Davidson dealerships from George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services. I finally made the very difficult and emotional decision to call George Chaconas to guide me in the sale of my dealership. George and his team put together an opinion of value which I felt was fair and was very comfortable with. I felt even more confident due to their vast buy/sell experience and ability to maximize the value of my dealership through their marketing and sales process. Ironically, George was able to negotiate a win/win purchase price with my biggest competitor. George convinced me that he was the most qualified and best buyer to carry on my legacy at Harley-Davidson of Long Branch. After being in business for over 43 years some of my customers include Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi among others. George was very responsive throughout the entire transaction, from the Letter of Intent to the Buy/Sell to the Closing, always returned my calls quickly and promptly, day or night and even on weekends. Without George’s expertise, integrity and honesty throughout the process, I do not know what would have happened or how this transaction would have panned out. He was very professional and diligent in educating me and I want to thank George very much for his ability to keep me centered and focused during this very emotional transition in my life. I would highly recommend George and Performance Brokerage Services if you are considering selling or buying a Harley-Davidson dealership.
Jeff Margaritell, Seller of Long Branch Harley-Davidson, New Jersey
George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services contacted me in reference to a Harley-Davidson dealership he had engaged to market and sell. After I signed the Confidentiality Agreement, George shared the opportunity and information on Harley-Davidson of Long Branch, New Jersey. I have had a strong interest and desire to own that dealership and expand my territory for years. I was very excited about working with George and making a deal happen. This dealership was the perfect strategic fit. George was very informative, professional, and shared all pertinent information very quickly. He was extremely helpful in successfully maintaining confidentiality while negotiating through the Letter of Intent, especially since the seller, Jeff Margaritell was very concerned about word getting out that he was selling his dealership. I knew that Jeff was most likely nervous and uncomfortable about me having discussions about and buying his store as we were direct competitors for many years. Once Jeff and I became comfortable with each other, with George’s assistance, we were able to work through a buy/sell in order to consummate a deal that all parties felt was fair and equitable. I look forward to continuing the legacy that Jeff began 43 years ago at Harley-Davidson of Long Branch. I greatly appreciate George’s assistance in navigating through this transaction and would definitely recommend him and Performance Brokerage Services if you are buying or selling a dealership.
Asa Murray, Ocean County Harley-Davidson, New Jersey
George, I appreciate all of your assistance throughout the process of selling Bogart’s Motorsports. You certainly made it easier than if I had tried to go it alone. Your experience and knowledge was very helpful. Thank you.
Bryson Stephens, Bogart’s Motorsports – BMW, Ducati, Triumph, Vespa, KTM of Birmingham, Alabama
George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services did a fantastic job in getting this to the close! George’s follow-up and responsiveness is impeccable. He does what he says he will do! George was very helpful in bringing to us Heritage Cycles Harley-Davidson and working the transaction until the closing. If you are looking to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership, you must know George Chaconas.
Greg Cooke, Revolution Motorsports Dealership Group, Multi-States
Thank you, thank you, thank you George Chaconas for your persistence, diligence and encouragement, which ultimately led to the successful purchase of House of Thunder Harley-Davidson. When George first introduced me to the opportunity, my first reaction was no. But George was consistent with his follow ups and encouragement to revisit the opportunity, to take the time to go to the dealership, to get a feel for the culture, the area, and the potential opportunity. Ultimately, my partner, Rich Gargano and I really liked what we saw and recognized the opportunity that George had brought to us and what a truly perfect fit House of Thunder was.
Bret Irvine, House of Thunder Harley-Davidson, California
A huge thank you to George Chaconas for guiding us through our first Harley-Davidson dealership purchase. George was always available and took the time necessary for us to get comfortable with our purchase. George’s experience, contacts and overall helpfulness was reassuring when it came time to finalize the purchase.
Rich Gargano, House of Thunder Harley-Davidson, California
George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services reached out to me about an opportunity he had recently engaged for sale to consider as a strategic acquisition. Ironically, I tried to buy the dealership several years ago to no avail. I was very excited to have the opportunity to purchase it again. George was very proficient, diligent and responsive throughout the process. George furnished us all the requested information in timely manner and helped us to a fast track closing in less than 90 days from start to finish. We are very excited and happy with the new dealership and look forward to working with George and Performance Brokerage Services in the future. I would highly recommend George to any Harley-Davidson or car dealers looking to buy or sell a dealership.
Virgil Schulenburg, Harley-Davidson Dealerships, Wisconsin/Iowa
George Chaconas contacted me about a few Harley-Davidson dealerships he had engaged for sale. George and I met at a recent Harley-Davidson conference, and George took me to lunch. I felt very comfortable speaking with him and was impressed with his knowledge and expertise in the Harley-Davidson space. Soon after we met, I decided to engage George to sell my dealership. George put together a thorough valuation and within weeks, had identified the perfect strategic and unique buyer for my dealership. Throughout the process, George was extremely helpful with his experience in pricing the dealership and entering into negotiations with the buyer which shortly thereafter led to a Letter of Intent, an Asset Purchase Agreement and a very fast closing. From start to finish, George helped make selling my dealership a seamless process, negotiated expertly on my behalf and I am very pleased with the personal service and diligence. I would highly recommend George Chaconas if you are thinking about buying or selling a Harley-Davidson dealership.
