“My recent acquisition of Victorville Harley-Davidson was the second dealership that I bought through George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. He knew exactly what I was looking for. It was a pleasure to have worked with George again as an industry expert and professional to help with a record closing! I personally want to thank him very much for another job well done and look forward to buying my next Harley-Davidson dealership with George. I highly recommend George and Performance Brokerage Services if you are considering buying or selling your Harley-Davidson or powersports dealership.”
I have known and worked with George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services for almost 20 years. During this period, we have bought and sold many dealerships together and have become friends. Most recently, I decided to sell Los Angeles Harley-Davidson and use the proceeds to buy another dealership on the East Coast where the majority of my Harley-Davidson dealerships are located. I knew we found the right buyers when George introduced me to Andrew Westbrook and his partners. George quickly and efficiently negotiated a very fair deal that led to a smooth and timely closing. I would highly recommend George when you are ready to buy or sell your dealership!
Having known George Chaconas over many years, it was a pleasure to finally work with him to acquire my first franchise dealership in St. Pete, Florida, Crown Mitsubishi, with his help, industry expertise, and professionalism. I look forward to working with him and his team, including Courtney Bernhard, in the years to come. I would highly recommend George and Courtney and the entire PBS team if you’re looking to buy or sell a franchised automotive dealership!
I want to personally thank George Chaconas and Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services for introducing me and our team at MOMS to acquire Freedom Cycle in Concord, NH. They were very professional and diligent in helping us buy the multi-line powersports dealership and real estate from long-time retiring owner Rupert Dance. George and Courtney knew Freedom Cycle was a very complimentary and strategic fit for our growing platform of powersports dealerships in New England since 1973. I look forward to working with George and Courtney again soon!”
We would like to thank George Chaconas and Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services for their hard work in getting this sale to the finish line. As you can imagine, selling a dealership of this size is no easy undertaking. They successfully identified the most strategic buyer that made an offer we felt was in the best interest of everyone involved. We appreciate George and Courtney’s professionalism, problem solving skills, and always being available as needed. I would also like to thank my longtime family attorney, George Westervelt, for his commitment and hard work, concurrently selling both of my companies. While fully retiring may not be our end game, we look forward to the next chapter in life, and being able to enjoy what Linda and I have worked so hard to build.
After acquiring Old Glory Harley-Davidson of Laurel, Maryland from George Chaconas and Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services, we were looking to expand our market in and around the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. George and Courtney introduced us to Patriot Harley-Davidson which was for sale via Sheehy Auto Stores. The addition of this location to our group made strategic sense for the opportunity to service our clients on both sides of Washington, D.C., and allows us to continue Patriot Harley-Davidson’s famous Ride of the Patriots to the nation’s capital. I want to thank George and Courtney for their help to get this deal done and look forward to continued growth in 2023.
I engaged George Chaconas and Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services to help me identify opportunities to acquire auto dealerships that were not yet listed on the open market.

I look forward to working together in the future!
When I made the decision to sell Down Home Harley-Davidson in Burlington, North Carolina, I called George Chaconas of Perfomance Brokerage Services, the industry buy-sell expert, and met with him at my dealership in San Antonio. After a long process, he and his partner Courtney Bernhard successfully identified the perfect buyers; Dan Roland understood the business coming from the Harley-Davidson world, along with his partner, Phil Mitchell, a car dealer from Washington. They were the perfect fit for my existing management, employees, and culture that I built over the years. I would like to thank George and Courtney for their professionalism, tenacity, perseverance, and attention to detail to help facilitate this transaction so I can focus my efforts on Caliente Harley-Davidson in Texas. When you are considering selling your Harley-Davidson dealership, I would encourage you to reach out to George and Courtney to plan your sale and maximize value through their process.
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.
I have known George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services for many years and had finally made a decision to sell my Harley-Davidson dealership and hire George and his team. George was able to identify multiple buyers, but ultimately, we negotiated a buy-sell with the Verackas. Unfortunately, Harley-Davidson Motor Company decided to exercise their Right of First Refusal and assign the Asset Purchase Agreement to the three surrounding dealers and close the location. With a very heavy heart, it was not what I had intended for my legacy of 18 years as a dealer, my amazing staff, and loyal customers. I am hopeful that my employees will be able to get jobs at the surrounding dealerships and that my customers will get the exceptional customer service that they have grown accustomed to. Hot Metal Harley-Davidson has been a huge part of my life, and this was not an easy situation to go through. I appreciate George Chaconas and his Associate, Courtney Bernhard, for helping me navigate this very difficult, challenging, and emotional situation for myself and my family. I highly recommend George and his team when considering selling. I also want to extend a sincere thank you to my dedicated staff and customers who have become like family to me. Hot Metal Harley-Davidson will always hold a special place in my heart.
After 76 years and three generations of ownership, our family made the difficult decision to sell our three dealerships. When George Chaconas and Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services first reached out to us, we had not yet made the decision to retire. They provided valuable information as to what the sales process would entail, and before we knew it, they brought us an offer from a well-respected company in the industry. The transaction was quite complex since we were a large, multi-location dealer. With George and Courtney’s help, and with the resources they recommended, we successfully navigated the many twists and turns and made it to the finish line. Todd Hempstead and I would like to personally thank the team at Performance Brokerage Services for their professionalism, industry experience, frequent communication, and persistence. If you are thinking of selling, and wondering if the time to sell is now, I would encourage you to reach out to them. Thank you, George and Courtney!
George Chaconas and his associate, Courtney Bernhard, of Performance Brokerage Services effectively transitioned a buyer with zero new dealership experience through the process and an on-time, no hassle closing.
