Comments from Harley-Davidson & Powersports dealers.
The Performance Brokerage Services team has developed an excellent network of business contacts and service providers including attorneys, appraisers, and accountants. Four Corners Harley-Davidson and Four Corners Powersports was the second dealership George Chaconas sold for me. George and his Associate, Courtney Bernhard, did an excellent job. They identified four highly interested and qualified buyers. While two letters of intent were submitted, we ultimately negotiated with the buyer that submitted the best offer. All transactions have problems, but when we encountered them, George and his team used their business network, expertise, and experience to help us resolve them. We greatly appreciate their help and are looking forward to retirement.

With gratitude, we would like to thank George Chaconas and Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services for putting us together with the Buyer, Wise Auto Group, within a few weeks of signing our agreement. The Wise Auto Group was amazing to work with. They were very professional, organized, and helpful with the transition. They treated us like family and recognized our almost 30 years of accomplishments. It's not easy to wind down, but this was a winning combination all the way around.

We recently closed a transaction for our new Harley-Davidson dealership in Lincoln, Nebraska. As a buyer, I’ve never felt overly comfortable with brokers for various reasons. However, working with George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services was far from the ordinary experience. Even though I was the buyer and not paying George’s fee, he still was involved, concerned and helpful with our side of the deal, making sure the details were to our liking as well as offering both advice and industry connections when needed. I strongly recommend George, he is a good asset when putting a deal together.

I had been working with George Chaconas to help me buy a Harley-Davidson dealership for years. George introduced me to Harley-Davidson of Washington DC, which perfectly fit my business model. George was very instrumental in helping negotiate the price and terms. There were a lot of moving parts and he did a great job. I am very satisfied and look forward to buying my next store with George's help. I highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services!

I have known George Chaconas for several years as the go-to-guy to help facilitate the buying and selling of Harley-Davidson dealerships. I asked him to keep me in mind when he had an opportunity that fit my profile. George introduced me to Las Vegas Harley-Davidson and the affiliated dealerships, and within a very short time, we had a deal. Don & Tim were great sellers and we hit it off immediately. George was very instrumental in navigating the process and keeping me in the loop, as this acquisition had a lot of moving parts. I had an excellent experience with George and thank him very much for helping me grow my Harley-Davidson dealership group. I look forward to working with him and Performance Brokerage again soon!

I was introduced to George Chaconas years ago at the annual NAMAD conference by mutual friends in the auto & Harley-Davidson business. When it came time to sell my Harley-Davidson dealership, I called George. It was a difficult assignment and he worked very hard to make it happen. I am very pleased with the outcome. If you are considering selling your dealership, look no further than George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.

I had been talking to George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services for a few years, and after a visit with George Chaconas and his associate, Courtney Bernhard, I felt like the timing was right. George is an expert in the industry and knew the right buyer for my dealership and its employees who have been like family. I sincerely appreciate George and Courtney for providing a smooth transaction and getting this to the finish line. I have referred George to several of my friends in the industry as I know he will guide them professionally on selling, whether the time is right now, or down the road.

It was a pleasure working with George Chaconas on the purchase of the Yamaha franchise in Pinehurst, NC. He was very helpful and diligent and his follow up was incredible. I would highly recommend George and Performance Brokerage Services.

Selling a business when it is not for sale openly, is very difficult to say the least. Jason worked with me over a two-year span to find the right buyer for our store. He worked with interested parties he knew confidentially until the right buyer was identified. This confidentiality element was paramount to us because we could not afford to have the “rumor mill “destroy the store in the interim. I would recommend Jason and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone. They are up front, honest and easy to work with. Sincerely,
– Robb Walther, CFO

True professionals in every way. Thanks to George Chaconas, Jason Stopnitzky and their team for providing our team with an excellent opportunity in Seattle Washington. We not only had a good business transaction, but made a new friend working with Performance Brokerage Services.
