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.

After much soul searching and contemplation about selling my family’s Harley-Davidson dealership of over 70 years, I reached out to Buy-Sell industry expert George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. Based on current Buy-Sell market conditions, we were unable to find a qualified buyer. Thus, after lengthy negotiations, we were able to reach a retirement incentive buyout with Harley-Davidson Motor Company. I sincerely appreciate George’s hard work, dedication and constant communication throughout the process so I could move forward with retirement in Florida. If you are a long-time dealer and considering selling or doing a retirement buyout with Harley-Davidson, I would highly recommend George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services.

After buying our first Harley-Davidson store from George Chaconas, he continued to stay in touch with us and introduced us to our second purchase.

Chesapeake Harley-Davidson in Darlington, Maryland

After trying to sell my dealership through my attorney's M & A dept, I hired George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services. George and I hit it off well and it was obvious we would be able to work together. My situation was somewhat special because of my building. I built a sustainable building a couple of years before the recession. It took a while to find a qualified buyer who would also appreciate the building. George was knowledgeable and persistent in finding a buyer. He kept me apprised on a regular basis and left no stones unturned. George found a buyer and proceeded to put our deal together. During this process we have become friends. To anyone considering selling their business, I recommend giving George a call. You won't be disappointed!

I knew of George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services as they have helped my father buy and sell car dealerships over many years. George was very instrumental in acquiring Frieze Harley-Davidson. His professionalism, consistency and perseverance helped bridge the gap in a very difficult transaction. I want to thank George very much for helping us grow our Harley-Davidson dealerships in our area.

This deal would not have happened without the involvement of George Chaconas from Performance Brokerage Services. Having worked with George in the past, he reached out to me about an opportunity in my market. George is a good guy to know in our industry. He was very professional and persistent and helped immensely in us buying Waterkotte Harley-Davison. I highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services if you're considering buying or selling a Harley-Davidson dealership.

Buying or selling, you need a broker who sticks with it and gets the job done. George Chaconas is that guy. Our three-year dream of purchasing a Harley-Davidson dealership would not have happened without George and his efforts.

Arsenal Harley-Davidson of Waterford, Michigan

Over the years, I had been saving numerous marketing materials from George Chaconas. It was an easy decision to hire George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services. George provided a complimentary evaluation and prepared a very thorough marketing book. I made the right decision as George and I became friends throughout the sale. It was a very difficult and emotional transaction. George became my trusted advisor and at times my emotional support. I am very grateful and happy that I can retire knowing George and I worked well together to help me and my family move forward to the next chapter of our lives. I would highly recommend George Chaconas when the time comes for you to retire!
