Comments from Harley-Davidson & Powersports dealers.
It is refreshing to work with someone who is responsive to a client’s needs 24/7. I highly recommend George Chaconas as an industry expert.

We worked with George C. Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services on the successful acquisition of East Coast Harley-Davidson in Dumfries, VA. Most recently, George showed us the perfect Harley-Davidson dealership he had listed for sale in our adjacent market, Waugh Harley-Davidson in Orange, Virginia. George was very helpful and professional in bringing the parties together to consummate a successful transaction. We highly recommend George and Performance if you are in the market to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership.

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.

I want to express my appreciation for all of your hard work on our recent transaction. Identifying a potential purchase who would see the value in our situation and helping such a purchaser to enter into a contract which was fair for both parties required an incredible amount of focus by you and your associates.
Selling a dealership the size and complexity of Fort Lauderdale Harley-Davidson is not without its unexpected circumstances. Your guidance and help in that regard was material to our having a transaction which closed on time, within the parameters of our agreement. Not always the case when guidance of your stature is not available.
I personally thank you for all of your hard work on everyone's behalf. The result for my associates, the purchase and their associates, and you and your associates was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend you and/or your company to represent a seller's interest when undertaking a transaction of this nature. Read the complete letter from E. B. Chester.

George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services helped our group acquire another Harley-Davidson dealership. I have worked with George for many years and can attest to his fair and honest approach in dealing with clients. His goal is to get transactions completed to the satisfaction of all parties. I would highly recommend George to buyers or sellers.

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.

Sheehy Auto Stores has been in my family for 50 years. We have experienced steady growth and own and operate 17 locations in the Mid-Atlantic region with 20 franchises. When George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services contacted me about a Harley-Davidson dealership available for sale right in the heart of our region I was intrigued. It was an exciting opportunity to add the Harley-Davidson brand in one of our largest market areas. George introduced me to Robert DeHaven, owner of Patriot Harley-Davidson. George provided me with a professional, comprehensive package which helped me understand the market conditions and the opportunity. I relied on George's industry knowledge and experience to help navigate the transaction. He was always very responsive, timely and communicated very effectively throughout the process. I am very pleased how George handled himself as a professional and a Harley-Davidson specialist and industry expert.

I got into the motorcycle business to fulfill a dream. I had a vision of growth and eventually a succession plan. George Chaconas has been part of our team of succession since we bought our first Harley-Davidson store with George's help years ago. Since then, he has sold five of our Harley-Davidson dealerships. George is my go-to guy. He’s available anytime, very professional and ethical. I am very thankful and sincerely appreciate his hard work and dedication. We have become friends over the years too. If you are ever considering buying or selling your store, I would highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services!

George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services approached me on behalf of a client to consider selling my Harley-Davidson dealership. After careful consideration, I was open to discussions. This led to a successful closing on the sale of my Harley-Davidson dealership. I highly recommend George Chaconas to help you sell your dealership, as he was persistent, professional and exhibited exceptional follow-up.

My partners and I decided to explore acquiring another Harley-Davidson dealership and since we bought our last store from George Chaconas, I reached out to him for new opportunities. He identified and we acquired Sound Harley-Davidson in Marysville, Washington. George was very instrumental and professional in helping us with the negotiations and throughout the closing process, especially through this unprecedented pandemic. He’s an industry expert with 20 years of experience in buy-sells and we highly recommend him and Performance Brokerage Services.
