Jason Wilkins Acquires Yucca Valley CDJR in California from Don McCredie
November 2, 2022
Performance Brokerage Services, North America’s highest volume dealership brokerage firm, is pleased to announce the sale of Yucca Valley Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in California from Don McCredie to Jason Wilkins.
Yucca Valley Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram has been in the community for more than 30 years. Don McCredie, a long-time GM dealer in the Hemet Auto Mall, had been semi-retired since 2009. He decided to get back into the business in 2020 with the purchase of Yucca Valley Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
Following the sale, McCredie commented, “We were so fortunate that Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services facilitated the sale of our family dealership. From the onset, Jason provided clear expectations into achievable pricing, timing, and logistics for the sale. In short order, he delivered on every count, identifying a qualified buyer that was a good fit for our family business. Throughout the transaction process, Jason remained highly communicative, thorough, and diligent. Beyond those qualities, Jason was also good-natured and empathetic towards all parties, resulting in a successful and highly professional close for the dealership. We would recommend Jason for both his nuanced grasp of deal flow logistics and extensive network of relevant buyers and sellers, but also for integrity and determination to get a sale over the finish line.”
Over the last 5 years, Performance Brokerage Services has advised on the sale of over 300 dealerships, making it the highest volume dealership brokerage firm in North America. In 2021, the company consummated 72 transactions, marking a record-breaking year. Jason Stopnitzky, the exclusive agent for this transaction and the Co-Founder of Performance Brokerage Services commented, “It was a pleasure assisting the McCredie family during this transaction, and I am thankful for the opportunity to have served in their best interest with the sale of their dealership. Congratulations to Mr. McCredie on his very well-deserved retirement. We were able to find a great fit with Jason Wilkins as the buyer. I have known the Wilkins family for 20 years and have had the privilege of helping them with 4 buy-sell transactions. I look forward to the bright future ahead for Jason Wilkins and his partner and wish them the best of luck on their newest acquisition.”
Jason Wilkins, along with his new partner, are in the beginning stages of building their new Southern California dealer group. Wilkins acquired Victorville Mitsubishi in 2020, also with the help of Performance Brokerage Services. He will bring on a GM that has worked with his family for many years to run operations for Yucca Valley Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
Wilkins shared, “Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services have been professional and attentive in every transaction we have completed with them. This was my family’s fourth transaction with Performance, and we look forward to many more in the future as we build out our newly formed dealer group. The straightforward approach from Jason is much appreciated and allows us to make quick decisions about whether a particular store will be a fit for our model. Thanks again Jason and Performance for your help!”
The Wilkins family formerly owned Victorville Nissan and Victorville Chevrolet Cadillac.
The dealership will remain at its current location at 57909 Twentynine Palms Highway in Yucca Valley, California and has been renamed Joshua Tree Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
