Performance Brokerage Services, and working with Jesse Stopnitzky in particular, has been a seamless process. We have felt that they helped facilitate this transaction in a professional manner, but also allowed us – as the buyer – to ensure that we got to know the seller on a personal level. By doing this, we were able to ensure the financial aspects of the transaction were handled while also understanding the intangibles.
Jesse Stopnitzky and his team provided exceptional strategic advice and a laser targeted list of potential buyers from a variety of industries, not just limiting us to the RV industry. This approach allowed us to maximize our value and find the perfect partner to acquire our entire dealer group that was both an operational and cultural fit. Jesse’s approach was transparent, strategic, and met all the objectives of the owners, our Team Members, our Guests, Airstream, and Lithia. Commitments were made and commitments were kept. Integrity, high work ethic, transparent, driven, and honest are characteristics I would use in describing Jesse and his team.
Jesse Stopnitzky and the crew at Performance Brokerage Services were outstanding to work with on the purchase of my new location in Orange, Texas. I found them to be prompt, forthright, and an all-around pleasure to work with. I certainly would not hesitate to do business with them again in the future. They made the entire process as painless as possible.
At Bish’s RV, we are looking for the right fit as we consider acquisitions. This includes a significant number of variables that can quickly become complicated. Jesse has been an excellent partner in helping us discover, simplify, and vet potential acquisitions. He understands our goals and what types of dealerships we are interested in. He can quickly adjust and help us find the right deal. Most recently, he was instrumental in our Longview, Texas acquisition. The deal transitioned smoothly for both us and our new acquisition. We appreciate his partnership and commitment to help us reach our business goals.
