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.

This is our second Harley-Davidson dealership that George Chaconas has helped us purchase. In both cases, if it wasn't for George's professionalism, persistence, follow up, discipline and commitment, we are very confident that neither of these transactions would have ever closed. Through the buying process, we have come to respect George and become friends too. We highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services if you are interested in buying or selling a Harley-Davidson dealership!

When my father, Dave and uncle, Mike, finally decided to sell Laugerman’s Harley-Davidson after considerable contemplation and soul searching, George Chaconas met with me and my family to discuss our dealership, its history, its potential and what kind of buyer would be best to carry on our family’s legacy. George was open, honest, and obviously very experienced and educated in his field. He was sensitive to the fact that the business had been in the family for so long and that this was a difficult and emotional decision for all of us. He brought numerous qualified buyers to the table, which proved his reach and breadth of contacts including current Harley-Davidson dealers, Powersports dealers, Automotive dealers and qualified first-time buyers. George made himself available any time of the day or night, even on weekends and while on vacation! He did everything he could to make this a smooth and seamless transaction for us, especially given the bundle of emotions tied up in it. George was introspective, perceptive, and available when we needed him most. He did everything he said he would do, and more. I would certainly recommend hiring George and Performance Brokerage Services to sell your Harley-Davidson dealership.

We have known of George Chaconas and his expertise in the brokerage of Harley-Davidson dealerships for many years. When it came time to sell, we were very impressed with George and signed up with Performance Brokerage Services. If not for his marketing efforts, tenacity, relationships and negotiating skills, this deal never would have happened! We are very happy with the services provided and would highly recommend George if you are ever considering selling your dealership.

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.

We had been looking to expand to Southern California and were very pleased to begin talks for Orange County Harley. After reviewing the information and visiting the dealership, with the help of Juan Pardo and George Chaconas we were able to work through a buy/sell and come to an agreement everyone was happy about. I appreciate their constant follow-up and assistance in making this deal happen and would highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services if you are looking to buy or sell a dealership.

After 28 years of being a Harley-Davidson dealer, we decided to sell Orange County Harley-Davidson. We reached out to George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services because they had sold many of my dealer-friends' stores. George's experience and expertise are unmatched in our industry. His communication and honesty were a breath of fresh air. We also want to thank Juan Pardo for his exceptional tenacity and follow-up. George should be your only call if looking to buy or sell a dealership.

George Chaconas reached out to me last year on behalf of a buyer to see if I would have an interest in selling. After a series of events that was happening at the Motor Company, I explored the possibility. I was not sure if we could get enough money to retire, so George prepared a complimentary evaluation for us and the numbers worked. George was referred to me by a very close Harley-Davidson dealer friend that he successfully helped sell his dealership. So I called George, we met for lunch, and I hired him. Within 30-45 days, we had multiple offers and went on to negotiate a buy-sell and a real estate purchase agreement with a well-qualified and motivated buyer. We had a very successful and smooth closing. I want to thank George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services for their professionalism, tenacity, commitment, discipline and perseverance to get this deal done for me and my family. We are very happy and look forward to the next chapter in our lives. I would highly recommend George Chaconas and PBS if you are considering retiring sooner than later!

I met George Chaconas at my dealership and had no idea I would be acquiring a neighboring store with his help. George was very easy to work with and helped make our deal happen. Thank you, George for helping us grow. I would recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services when buying a dealership!

After almost 40 years in the business, it was time for my Partner, Dennis, and me to officially retire. George Chaconas successfully sold our first Harley-Davidson dealership, so it was a very easy decision to engage him to sell our last dealership. The Harley-Davidson motorcycle business has been very difficult the last several years. We went through several offers, but George found a great first-time buyer to acquire our dealership; a former Harley-Davidson General Manager and his business partner. I want to thank George very much for his professionalism, commitment, discipline and perseverance. The buy-sell market has changed and if you are considering retiring or just want out, now is the time to call Performance Brokerage Services!
