We have now done numerous transactions with Performance Brokerage. They continue to bring us offerings we like. We find them professional and trustworthy.
Paul Kechnie stopped in my store earlier this year, as my brother and I had been contemplating a sale. We ultimately engaged the services of Paul and Performance Brokerage Services. Paul did a great job of finding us the perfect buyer. The buyer was well qualified, fair and closed on the transaction in a timely manner.
Paul Kechnie from Performance Brokerage was great to work with through the entire process. We had one deal fall through previously, but Paul said he would find me another one. We closed on it mid April. Thanks Paul!
