Why Should I Hire a Broker?
A dealership often represents the majority of a family’s net worth and should be handled with care by an experienced broker. We actively manage the buy-sell process from beginning to end to help you establish an asking price consistent with the current market conditions and latest trends, develop a custom-tailored marketing strategy to identify the buyers most qualified to satisfy your specific goals, negotiate from a position of strength to maximize the value of your business, guarding your confidentiality, guide you through the complexities of the transaction while ensuring that your best interests are protected, and assist with the due diligence stage and through the closing. We are a full-service brokerage firm, by your side, every step of the way.

    What are Your Fees?
    While providing an unmatched quality of service and a higher closing rate, we offer a competitive and reasonable fee structure. We do not charge any retainers nor upfront fees like most other brokerage firms. We do not expect any reimbursement of marketing or travel costs. We charge a success fee only, paid at closing and after you are paid.
    How do You Maximize Value?
    The sale of your business is the last opportunity for the assets to generate income for you. We work hard to maximize the value on your behalf.

    Earnings Adjustments: We adjust the earnings to reflect discretionary and one-time expenses, which enhances the profit represented. We evaluate the upside potential, a host of intangible variables, and the market trends that may further influence the value.

    Asset Adjustments: Accounting for accelerated depreciation, assets that are not booked, and varying valuation methods, the value of your assets may be significantly higher than they are booked.

    Expert Negotiations: We negotiate on your behalf from a position of strength as industry experts with local market familiarity and an unmatched amount of data from national transactions.

    The Deal Flow: Creating a competitive environment among multiple buyers ensures that you receive fair market value by firming or even elevating the price. Buyer’s decision to buy is validated knowing that others are also interested in buying your dealership, especially if the ones looking are high profile dealers. A sense of urgency and the fear of loss are introduced, which expedites the buyer’s decision to proceed. It ensures buyer’s timely performance and continued fair negotiations, knowing that other buyers are on his heels should he waver, not follow through on his commitments or attempt to renegotiate the previously agreed terms.
    How Long is the Process?
    After hundreds of dealership sales, the sales cycle from engagement to closing ranges on average from 6-8 months. Some factors that may influence the speed of a sale:

  • Straight-forward terms with as little “hair” on the deal.
  • Flexibility, resulting in a larger buyer pool.
  • Clean books and records, eliminating the need for a lengthy due diligence period.
  • Reasonable asking price and inline with current market conditions.
  • Motivation by seller, and broker’s identifying of a motivated buyer.
  • Continuous fair negotiations by both parties.
  • Involvement of an automotive attorney and accountant for added expertise.
  • Involvement of an experienced auto dealership broker to minimize pitfalls.
  • Relationships with the factory to request an expedited approval of the buyer.
  • Advanced preparation of your dealership for a future sale.
