Client Reviews & Testimonials

We’ve known Jason Stopnitzky at Performance Brokerage Services for a long time, and they’ve always been a trusted resource of us. They have a wealth of experience and truly understand the complexities of the business. This was our first time working with Jonny and his father, John Mecham, and they approached things with the same expertise. They did a terrific job of bringing both parties together from start to finish, tackling issues efficiently. I think the collective teamwork ensured one of the easiest transitions I’ve had the pleasure to be a part of. I would confidently recommend Jonny and John Mecham and Performance Brokerage Services and look forward to working with them again in the future.

Randy Callison
Asbury Automotive Group

I very much enjoyed working with Gershon Rosenzweig and Matt Wilkins of Performance Brokerage Services. They are consummate professionals. The entire process was efficient, and they were available and responsive to deal with related issues, which are inevitable in auto retail M&A. I look forward to working with them again in the future.

Jamie Albertine
VP of Corporate Development, Group 1 Automotive

I have purchased over 35 new car stores in my career. In the beginning, I stayed away from brokers. Since I met the Stopnitzky family, I learned something from them...they are not looking for a sale like a broker, they are looking for a customer they can help to make an educated transaction. Their honesty, integrity and attention to detail are second to none. After doing several deals with them, I now know they only do deals one way…that is a win for the buyer as well as a win for the seller. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a car dealership.

Jeffrey Cappo
President, Victory Auto Group

Jason's deals are always accurate, timely, complete and obviously thoroughly reviewed for quality before we receive them. As a result, Performance Brokerage has a perfect transaction approval history with Ford and Lincoln in the Western US Market Area since 2006.

Patrick Sheehan
Ford Motor Company

Performance Brokerage Services are a pleasure to work with. Their knowledge of the auto industry and deal structure is impressive. Anytime we have a broker that adds value and is focused on the finish line, they are an asset to our team. We look forward to working with them again in the near future.

Mark DeBoer
Lithia & Driveway

Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage are exceptional at what they do. We’ve worked with them on many transactions over the years and are always impressed by their professionalism, knowledge of the market, and ability to streamline complex transactions. With the buy-sell market so active, it’s more important than ever to work with great people who you trust and can facilitate win-win transactions for buyers and sellers. We’d recommend Jason and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone looking to buy or sell a dealership.

Ryan Gee
CEO, Gee Automotive Companies

Moshe has an organic way of matching the right buyer with a seller based on the interest of the parties rather than a blind auction approach. I think Performance Brokerage Services' approach led to a higher price for their client because Moshe identified the strategic buyer willing to pay a high market valuation. Our transaction went smooth because Moshe facilitated an environment of collaboration from the start of diligence to closing.

Jeff Swickard
President, Swickard Auto Group

I would like to thank Rob Armstrong and the Performance Brokerage Services team for their outstanding work on our entry into the US market. Rob quickly identified the ideal stores for Go Auto to make our first US acquisition and was a superb communicator throughout the deal. I found Rob to be the most honest and capable broker we have ever worked with, hands down! We look forward to doing more business with Performance Brokerage Services.

Jared Priestner
Principal, Go Auto & RV Group

We utilized Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky to help us sell our dealerships in Arizona. We were impressed by their efforts in not only finding the right buyer, but also in following through to see the transaction to its conclusion. Above all, they were gentlemen all along the way and were a pleasure to work with.

Tyler Corder, CFO
Findlay Automotive Group

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.

Larry Morgan
Morgan Automotive Group

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.

Ted Davis
Founder, Airstream Adventures

I have known and worked with Performance Brokerage Services for over a decade. I have always found them to be professional, timely and ethical. They have their fingers on the market’s pulse and you can always expect straight-talk and honest dealings. Once you become a client, you most likely will become a friend. You will not be disappointed.

Michael O’Brien
President, O’Brien Auto Group

Gershon Rosenzweig, Matt Wilkins, and the entire Performance Brokerage team were outstanding to work with. They were professional, well organized, and very easy to do business with. We look forward to working with them again very soon.

Carl Tasca
President, Tasca Automotive Group

I recommend Performance Brokerage on both the buy or sell side. I have personally known the Stopnitzky family for more than 20 years and have experience with both father and sons – they’re a great family. Performance has been a pleasure to deal with in all facets of acquisition or disposition. They are up-front, honest, and stay in constant communication, which is so important to a dealer on either side of the equation. I have nothing but positive things to say about their manner of doing business.

Brad Tonkin
Tonkin Auto Group

Paul Kechnie of Performance Brokerage Services was fantastic to work with. From a communication perspective, it felt as if he was working for both parties, even though he made it clear he was representing the seller. I look forward to working with Paul in the future. He was just phenomenal.

Randy Hoffman
EVP, Ed Morse Automotive Group

Jason Stopnitzky helped our group to add two additional dealerships in less than a year, and both transactions were text book.

David Wilson
CEO, Wilson Automotive Group

Sheehy Auto Stores has been in my family for 50 years. We have experienced steady growth and own and operate 17 locations in the Mid-Atlantic region with 20 franchises. George Chaconas provided me with a professional, comprehensive package which helped me understand the market conditions and the opportunity. I relied on George's industry knowledge and experience to help navigate the transaction. He was always very responsive, timely and communicated very effectively throughout the process. I am very pleased how George handled himself as a professional and industry expert.

Vince Sheehy, IV
Sheehy Auto Stores

Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services is not only the best broker I have ever done business with, but also one of the best human beings I have ever met. He is genuine, honest, and hard working. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with him through my acquisition of Win Chevrolet. He made every step of the transaction as easy as humanly possible. If there was a way to give him more than five stars I would, as he honestly deserves millions.

Bob Nouri
Nouri/Shaver Auto Group

My experience with Jason and Moshe Stopnitzky were both professional and delightful. They kept me informed of the status and progress of the transaction and communicated with me on a very professional and timely manner. It was indeed a pleasure dealing with this company to accomplish our desired outcome.

Spencer Young Jr.
President, Young Automotive Group

Dan Argiro and Performance Brokerage Services were instrumental in the purchase. They did an excellent job communicating with our team and helping throughout the process.

George Brochick
EVP, Penske Automotive Group, Inc.

Pat Albero of Performance Brokerage Services reached out with an opportunity to expand our John Deere dealership business. From day one, Pat was fantastic to work with and very attentive. I certainly would not hesitate to do business with Performance Brokerage again in the future. I would highly recommend Pat Albero, Dan Argiro, and the team at Performance Brokerage.

Jeff Donaldson
CEO, Tellus Equipment

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.

Jeff Hirsch
President, Campers Inn RV

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.

Troy Jenkins
CEO, Bish's RV

Jason Stopnitzky did an outstanding job finding the right buyer and keeping in touch with our group every step of the way. His constant communication helped put the deal together. I put a lot of trust in a broker and Performance Brokerage Services came through in a big way. Not sure any other broker would have been able to facilitate the sale like they did. To any dealer looking for an extremely hard working and honest broker, Jason is your guy.

Scott Gruwell, Partner
Courtesy Automotive Group

I had the pleasure of just completing my third deal this year with Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services. Honest, knowledgeable, ethical, and most of all a true pleasure to work with. If you are considering buying or selling, I highly recommend using Jason and the team at PBS.

Sean Crowley, President
Crowley Car Company, California

Our group had a great experience with Performance Brokerage Services. Jason Stopnitzky and his team know the automotive market extremely well. From the dealers, to the OEMs, to the attorneys, this is an extremely well respected brokerage firm that goes above and beyond to communicate and get deals closed quickly and accurately. In a business where time is of short supply, the high level of service offered is greatly appreciated.

Chad Martin, J.D., President
Martin Management Group

I have worked with Jason Stopnitzky for several years. I value his level of knowledge and expertise. His detailed analysis of market conditions and the players in those various markets is invaluable. I highly recommend Jason and his staff to anyone considering buying or selling a dealership.

Dave Edmark, President
Edmark GM Superstore, Idaho

We just recently acquired our 10th store with the help from Gershon Rosenzweig and Matt Wilkins of Performance Brokerage Services. They were extremely professional and had thorough knowledge of the entire operation we were looking to purchase. These gentlemen are straight shooters and provided us with a great due diligence package with all the facts needed for our transaction. We were able to purchase this dealership in record time with their help and assistance. I would highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services as a buyer’s or seller’s agent.

MJ Lofland, Vice President & COO
i.g. Burton Auto Group

I was extremely satisfied with your involvement throughout the transaction and FIRMLY believe that your ethical work assisted your client and myself to have a very smooth closing. Needless to say in my 35 years of business, I have bought and sold dealerships and its people like yourself that give our industry strength by demonstrating and practicing ethical and first-class treatment of both parties. I would highly recommend your firm to do business with and look forward to new ventures through your company.

Al Monjazeb, President
Luxury Group, Washington

We’ve known Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky at Performance Brokerage Services for a long time, and they’ve always been a trusted resource for us. They have a wealth of experience and truly understand the complexities of the business. This was our first time working with John Mecham, and he approached things with the same expertise. John did a terrific job of bringing both parties together. From start to finish, it was about as smooth and friction-less as I’ve seen, and I think both sides can say it was a “win-win”. I would confidently recommend John Mecham and Performance Brokerage Services.

Mitch Pierce, President
Elway Dealership Group

Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage assisted us with the sale of our 75-year-old family business. We painted a picture for Jesse of everything that was important to us to attain not just a sale, but a proper fit that suited us as sellers, and for our employees and our community. Jesse attentively facilitated all our questions and needs. Jesse did not just become a business partner, but he took this to heart and worked diligently to vet out potential suiters and find a company that most closely met our criteria. Jesse genuinely showed complete respect, determination, and care throughout the entire process. When Jesse did bring a player to the table, it was a company that was indeed a great match. In working with Jesse, it quickly became apparent that not only were we partnering with a genuine person, but a company that shares many of the same values and ethics that we do. If you want more than just a broker, but someone who is a true partner, then you have found just that in Jesse and Performance Brokerage. We highly recommend them both.

David Hayes
President, Hayes RV Center

I have worked with Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage Services for many years, and if you are looking for a dealership broker, I strongly recommend them. Performance Brokerage Services are the experts in their field! They are honest, well informed, reliable and most importantly, they get the job done!

Leslie E. Chayo, Attorney at Law
Beverly Hills, California

I have had the good fortune over the last 15 years to work on and close hundreds of dealership transactions (auto, cycle, and heavy-truck) throughout the United States. Many of those transactions involved brokers or consultants who brought the parties together, facilitated negotiations, and helped with shepherding the deal over the occasional rough spots on the way to a closing. I have worked with George Chaconas, of Performance Brokerage Services, on numerous transactions. George is a high energy guy with a passion for the business. He is competent, professional, and diligent in the representation of his clients, and a valuable catalyst for moving deals to a successful closing. I heartily recommend George at Performance Brokerage Services.

Robert A. Bass, Attorney
Bass Sox Mercer, Tallahassee, Florida

George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services helped our group acquire another Harley-Davidson dealership. I have worked with George for many years and can attest to his fair and honest approach in dealing with clients. His goal is to get transactions completed to the satisfaction of all parties. I would highly recommend George to buyers or sellers.

Dave Rommel, President
Multi-State Dealership Group

Performance Brokerage Services did an absolutely amazing job with the sale of our Toyota and Subaru stores. Jason Stopnitzky and his family, along with Jonathan Forgy, were incredibly professional, always available, and kept in constant communication with us day or night. We feel very fortunate to have had such a strong brokerage team to work with. If you are looking to buy or sell a store, you need to contact Performance first. They will treat you like family!

“Working with Rob Armstrong from Performance Brokerage Services was an absolute pleasure. His patience, professionalism, expertise, and dedication made acquiring this new dealership a positive experience. Rob's deep understanding of the industry and commitment to ensuring that both parties communicated effectively and clearly were evident throughout our interactions. He was always responsive and proactive and went above and beyond to address our questions and concerns.”

Michael Carmichael
President & CEO, UpAuto

Emily Bourne of Performance Brokerage Services was wonderful. She is very professional, easy to work with, and made the transaction process seamless. Everything was very confidential, and until the final papers were signed, confidentiality was maintained. Emily and Performance Brokerage Services did an excellent job.

Marie Heffernan
Owner, Heffernan Ford

From start to finish Paul Kechnie and Emily Bourne of Performance Brokerage Services were great! They listened and were engaged and helpful. A great experience!

Aaron Resnick
Owner, South Lake Motors, Inc.

When I decided to sell my dealership after nearly 20 years, the decision to choose a broker to represent me was not taken lightly. I owned and operated a Chevrolet dealership previously and had hired two different firms to help me sell the franchise. My experience with those other firms was negative. I had spoken to Jason Stopnitzky throughout the years and based on his reputation, I chose to engage him to sell my BMW franchise. We had a very frank and honest conversation about my goals and the valuation of the dealership. Jason and his team worked with my wife and me to set a price that we felt was fair. Jason and his team prepared a professional package to propose to potential buyers, and in a very short period of time, Jason presented me with a very well-qualified buyer. The negotiation process was handled quickly and efficiently. Jason and his team worked seamlessly with my attorney and the buyer, and my transaction was closed within 90 days. I could not be happier with the end result. Jason supported me throughout the process, and I can honestly say that we formed a friendship that will last for years as a result. Having consulted and worked with several other brokers in my automotive career, I can wholeheartedly recommend Jason and his team at Performance Brokerage Services without any reservations.

Jeffrey Cappo

I’m glad Performance Brokerage Services put me together with the seller. They were very fair and equitable throughout the whole process. Most importantly, Matt Wilkins and Performance Brokerage Services were very responsive whenever I had a question and worked hard to finalize a good deal for two parties. I am already talking with them again about their services with anything that might come up in the future.

Todd Copeland
Dealer Principal, Copeland Auto Group

Honesty, knowledge, and integrity are very important attributes one must have in any business. I have worked with Jason Stopnitzky on several deals, and it has truly been a pleasure working with him on every level. He anticipates every element of a deal and addresses them in advance in an incredibly honest and seamless way. I will continue to work with him on my future deals. It’s been a great experience working with Performance Brokerage Services and I would recommend this company regardless of whether you are on the buyer or seller side.

David Massoudi
President, Mass Auto Group

After my very first meeting with Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services, I was impressed. We talked about my business and where I wanted to be in life at this point. We both talked of time, travel, and family. He very quickly found a buyer for Nissan of Tustin and the transaction went smoothly from day one and closed without any issues. I not only got the deal I wanted, but gained a friend.

Tim Hutcherson
Owner, Nissan of Tustin

When I decided to sell my dealership and retire, I reached out to Paul Kechnie and Emily Bourne at Performance Brokerage Services. After a few discussions with them, I felt confident that they were a good fit to facilitate a sale. I found them to be very knowledgeable, professional, and diligent. Ultimately, we found a great buyer, and I’m very pleased with the results. I have and will continue to recommend Performance Brokerage Services.”

Working with Rob Armstrong on the acquisition of Doyle CDJR was an exceptional experience! Rob's deep industry knowledge and strategic approach were invaluable in navigating the complexities of the deal. He was always available to answer our questions and provide clear, comprehensive advice at every step. Rob's dedication to our success and his ability to secure favorable terms were truly impressive. We are grateful for his hard work and unwavering support throughout the process. We highly recommend Rob Armstrong to anyone in need of expert automotive brokerage services.

Vince Palladino
Palladino Auto Group

As car dealers we are inclined to think we know all about buying and selling. But when it came to selling one of our dealerships, I learned in a hurry how little I knew and how complicated it could be. Emily Bourne walked us through every aspect of the sale and made it quite stress free. The people of Performance Brokerage Services are truly professionals, and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them in the future.

Jim Paul
Valley Automotive Group

It was a pleasure working with Matt Willis and Emily Bourne of Performance Brokerage Services. They were professional, always available, and maintained constant communication, ensuring the entire process went smoothly. I look forward to working with them again in the future.

We had the pleasure of working with Jesse Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage Services on the purchase of our RV dealership in Colorado Springs. We had known of their firm for many years in the automotive industry and as expected, the experience was first-class. Jesse was highly responsible and professional, and assisted with anything we needed. We look forward to working with them again in the future.

Jeff Taylor
President, Pikes Peak RV

We would like to thank Jesse Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage Service for helping us sell our dealership and for identifying a buyer who is going to carry on my father’s legacy by taking care of the customers and being a staple in the community. Jesse was more than a broker. He genuinely cared about the outcome and treated us like family. Through the sale, Jesse was always available to help with negotiations, moral support, and talking me off ledges. Jesse has extensive knowledge in dealership brokerage and his strength is in buy-sell negotiations. This resulted in a win-win for my family and the new owners. Thank you to Jesse for his hard work in helping our sale be a success. If you are considering a sale of your business, we highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services as they are industry experts, highly professional, and trustworthy.”

Tim Biles
President, Pikes Peak Traveland

As a third-generation, family-owned dealership established in 1960, selling was not on our radar. However, family health issues brought us to consider a transition. Juan Pardo of Performance Brokerage Services visited with us at our dealership and helped us understand the buy-sell process and how we could maximize the value of many decades of labor. Not only was Juan and his team instrumental in finding the perfect buyer that fit with our family values and culture, but he also made sure we had the right team of attorneys and financial advisors in place.” Curtis added, “Having never gone through a buy-sell, and 64 years of hard work and success in the community, emotions ran the spectrum, and we appreciate Juan’s calming personality. That steady, warm, and professional demeanor helped us get this deal to a successful close. If you are looking to sell your powersports dealership in the future, the Sloan family would highly recommend Juan Pardo and his team at Performance Brokerage Services.

Curtis Sloan
President & CEO, Sloan's Motorcycle & ATV

I want to thank Juan Pardo of Performance Brokerage Services for presenting and guiding us through the Sloan’s Motorcycle & ATV buy-sell process. Having been a long-time family owned automotive and powersports dealer in Mississippi, we knew this opportunity was a perfect fit for our growing group. As with most deals, there are complexities that come up, and his professionalism and availability helped us get this deal to a successful conclusion. I look forward to working with Juan in the future and recommend Performance Brokerage Services if you are considering buying or selling your powersports dealership.

Cannon Kirk
Kirk Auto Group

After selling my Harley-Davidson dealership and considering selling my multi-line powersports dealership, I looked no further than George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. George and his partner, Courtney Bernhard, were very professional and experienced deal makers. It was not the easiest buy-sell to navigate as there were many OEM‘s compared to just one with Harley-Davidson. In addition, bank financing and multiple floor plans just makes it even more difficult. Fortunately, me and the buyer were highly motivated to get our deal done! I sincerely appreciate the job well done by George and Courtney, and highly recommend them when you are ready to buy or sell your dealership!

Thomas Celani
MotorCity Power Sports

We’d like to thank Mark and his team. Mark’s persistence and unflappable demeanor were essential to navigating the various issues that are bound to come up during a buy sell. He kept us all on track and was a big part of getting this over the finish line!

Tom Wood
Vice President & COO, Courtesy Acura

When purchasing our new Chevrolet/GMC dealership, we worked exclusively with Mark Shackleford, Sr. and Mark Shackleford, Jr. from Performance Brokerage Services. They made the purchase extremely smooth. I felt well-informed throughout the entire process. Any questions that came up were handled very promptly. Their knowledge of the buy/sell process was outstanding, and made this a very enjoyable experience. I would definitely call on them for future acquisitions. Thank you Mark and Mark!

Bob Davis
Owner, Fairway Chevrolet Buick GMC

“Signature Harley-Davidson of Perrysburg, Ohio, a suburb of Toledo, is the third dealership I’ve purchased through George Chaconas and his partner, Courtney Bernhard, of Performance Brokerage Services. George and Courtney represented me in the past on a buy-side arrangement for a targeted opportunity, and a sell-side engagement for this Toledo purchase. It’s always a pleasure working with them as they are true professionals and experts in the powersports industry. If you are considering selling your Harley-Davidson or Powersports dealership and have no succession plan, or if you are a buyer that isn’t comfortable cold calling dealerships you wish to purchase, look no further than George and Courtney at PBS. I would like to thank George and Courtney for their continued guidance, service, friendship, and partnership in growth!”

Evan Schipper
Owner, Toledo Harley-Davidson

Working with Rob from Performance Brokerage Services was an exceptional experience from start to finish. His expertise and dedication made the process of sourcing and purchasing Jim Taylor Motors smooth and efficient. His attention to our needs and commitment to our success were evident throughout every step of the transaction. We truly appreciate his professionalism and would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to navigate the complexities of dealership acquisitions. Thank you for helping us achieve our goals!

Lachlan Griffiths
CFO, Wolfe Automotive Group

Sam Swope and Tom Wood started Courtesy Acura in 1985 and the dealership was passed down to their children Patti Swope and Jeff Wood. My dad became the Honda dealer in 1970 so it’s an honor for us to acquire the Acura store from the Swope-Wood families after all of these years. Mark Shackelford at Performance Brokerage Services helped everyone involved in this transaction. It’s important to use professionals in the process and Mark did a great job representing the sellers by clearly communicating their goals. He then assisted me as the buyer in working through all of the contract details and the application process. His involvement and services benefited all parties as he streamlined the communication process. If anyone is considering selling their dealership, I would certainly recommend Mark to assist them.

Don Jacobs
Don Jacobs Motorcars, Inc.

It was a pleasure working with the team at Performance Brokerage Services. From our initial conversations, I let them know what our group was looking to acquire in terms of brands and locations. They listened and found us our top brands in our target markets. Soon after we spoke, I received a call on four stores that were not listed for sale in which they had a long-term relationship with the seller. Less than six months later, we closed on two Honda stores and two Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram stores. I would recommend Performance Brokerage Services to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Andrew Dahl
President, Dahl Automotive Group

I met Paul Kechnie a number of years ago, we had a lot of things in common and quickly became great friends. We chat regularly and discuss the market conditions of the automotive retail industry. Paul called to discuss a dealer group that was motivated to further expand their footprint in Wisconsin. After a lot of discussion, I agreed to sell four stores I owned outside my main market to the Dahl family. Congratulations to the Dahl family, it was a great result for both of us.

Keith Kocourek
President, Kocourek Automotive Group

Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services are one of the major reasons we are where we are today. They helped us purchase our first dealership 18 months ago and we have now wrapped up our third one with them. The fact that Jason called me back when I was looking to buy my first store, with no prior experience of ownership, and spoke with me for almost an hour to understand my needs and situation, tells you everything you need to know. I am forever thankful and owe Jason and Performance Brokerage Services a lot more than these words. Jason is not your typical broker. He is more like a 5-star, personal concierge service who truly cares about you. The team at Performance Brokerage Services handles their clients like family. They are available, willing to listen, and able to work through tough situations. There are no easy deals, yet with Performance Brokerage, it all becomes easy. They are consummate professionals. If it were up to me, I would do all my deals with them. They don't play games, there are no surprises, and they keep it real. I'm sure these are traits learned from Moshe Stopnitzky, Jason’s father, who is the founder of the company.

Vikas Mehandroo
President, Aaron Auto Group

It has been an absolute pleasure collaborating with Performance Brokerage Services. This marks our group's first entry into the Kubota network, and we couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Performance Brokerage Services has proven to be true experts in their field. Their extensive knowledge, wealth of experience, and unwavering professionalism made the acquisition process incredibly smooth and straightforward. Their communication throughout the entire process was nothing short of exceptional, ensuring that we were informed and updated at every stage. I wholeheartedly recommend Performance Brokerage Services to any dealer considering selling their dealership. We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to work with Pat Albero and his team again in the future.

Bob Howard
Owner, Bob Howard Luxury Auto Group

We extend heartfelt gratitude to Pat Albero and the entire Performance Brokerage Services team for their assistance in selling our family's dealership. Throughout the process, Pat and his team provided crucial guidance and strategic advice, demonstrating an unparalleled understanding of the industry.

Thank you, Pat Albero and the entire Performance Brokerage Services team.

The McCarty Family
Owners, Universal Tractor Co.

Thank you Courtney and Performance Brokerage Services for helping us acquire our second dealership in Medford, Oregon. Your representation for the seller was great and professional, and you were great to work with on our end as the buyer as well. We are already on our way to a quick start and look forward to creating memorable experiences and servicing the community with all of their powersports needs.

Jaime Rodriguez

When my husband and I decided to sell our business and retire, we tried for over a year to sell it on our own to no avail. We decided to sign with a broker and were so glad we did. Performance Brokerage Services and Courtney Bernhard were great to work with. Courtney was there every step of the way; she was very responsive to our questions and walked us through the entire process. She is extremely educated in the powersports business. We’d recommend Courtney and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone wanting to sell their dealership.

Kathy Smith
Co-Owner, Kawasaki Honda of Medford

We had the pleasure of engaging Jesse Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage Services. He was instrumental in aligning our family’s dealership with the right buyer. He was always available and highly responsive. We share similar values of honesty and integrity, which helped assure me that my best interests were always at the forefront of his actions. If you are considering buying or selling an RV dealership, I highly recommend Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services.

Darren Mann
Owner, RV World

This is my eighth closed transaction with Performance Brokerage Services. Paul Kechnie and Eric Scott continue to help us grow our family of dealerships. They are great to work with and support us throughout the entire process. They work very hard not only to find us opportunities, but then navigate them through to a smooth closing. Paul and Eric are the kind of people we want to work with.

Gregg Young
President & Owner, Gregg Young Automotive Group

My journey started 36 years ago, and throughout that journey, I’ve had the privilege of meeting some great individuals that have made a tremendous impact on my career, paving the way to much success. So, when the time came to start my new journey in creating my own generational prosperity and legacy, I started the search to find a strong and well-respected brokerage. The search ended when I was introduced to Matt Wilkins with Performance Brokerage Services. The moment we connected with Matt, he truly embodied all the things that were important to me, and he immediately started working to help identify opportunities. And along the way, he has not only advised and guided me to my first purchase but has taken the time to connect me with others to fulfill my goal of ownership. I can, with the utmost respect and confidence, not only recommend Matt, but also encourage all those that have shared the same goals of ownership to take the bold steps and move forward, knowing that choosing Matt will be the right decision and will give you the individual you want in your corner.

Young Park

Gershon Rosenzweig and Matt Wilkins were invaluable assets in facilitating the sale of my dealership. It was of utmost importance to me that they identified the right buyer who would continue the legacy of our business, and they exceeded all our expectations. I would highly recommend anyone considering selling to seek their guidance. They did a tremendous job working with the buyer to ensure we made it to a smooth closing.

Gary Harwood
Owner, Maple City Dodge

Paul Kechnie and Eric Scott are both very upfront and honest, and we have always had a very good working relationship. Both were very attentive, checking in several times during the transaction and making sure everything on our end was going well. I really felt they had my best interest at heart, and I really trust them. They stayed focused on the process, followed up, and stayed in touch with me every step of the way. If you are looking to buy or sell your dealership, I would highly recommend them.

Greg Maurer
Owner, Dale Willey CDJR & Honda

This was the first time my brother and I purchased another store, and Eric Scott was there for us from our initial conversation and throughout the entire process. From the start of the transaction, it was very smooth and easy. Eric not only presented the right opportunity for us, but he was there for us throughout the duration of the transaction. I appreciated both Eric and Paul working with us and providing great guidance throughout the entire process.

Zachary Sight
Gm & Partner, Bob Sight Ford

Paul Kechnie and Eric Scott were professional, trustworthy, and there every step of the way throughout this process. Both stores sold at different times and Eric was there each time. What started out as an easy deal ended up becoming a complicated sale that dragged out for quite some time. Without their expertise, the deal would have certainly fallen apart. They did a great job not only with the buyer and keeping him motivated, but they kept me motivated throughout the transaction. Maintaining the legacy of my family’s 64-year-old business was of utmost importance to me, and Eric and Paul were there to find the perfect buyer and make sure I was making the right decision in selling. They were truly great to work with.

John Ernst
Owner, Ernst Toyota & Chevrolet GMC

Performance Brokerage Services was selling BMC Boats that a friend of mine owned and operated, and asked me if I would consider selling. Performance Brokerage Services introduced us to several buyers, and we ended up choosing Smith Automotive Group who was a pleasure to work with. As my partner, Kathy, our family, and I have owned and operated Aloha Marine for over 50 years, we wanted to partner with a buyer who appreciated the legacy and the commitment to our employees, customers, and the local marine and boat industry. We are very excited to be a part of the new ownership for the foreseeable future, and we sincerely appreciate and are very grateful for Performance Brokerage Services’ professionalism, hard work, and commitment to helping facilitate this transaction! Look no further when you are considering the sale of your marine and boat dealership.

Dave Rusler
President, Aloha Marine

We are very excited about acquiring our first marine dealership in Florida with the help of the team at Performance Brokerage Services. They were very helpful in guiding us through the buy-sell process and it was a pleasure to work with them again.

Pat Albero and the entire team at Performance Brokerage Services have earned our professional endorsement and personal thanks. From beginning to end, Pat and his team were unwavering in their support of our family, providing vital guidance every step of the way.

Kirk Anderson
President & Co-Owner, McGee Storage & Handling

It was a pleasure to work with Eric Scott on the purchase of Zeller Ford. He was available and responsive every step of the way, including weekends. Eric did his due diligence and made it as seamless a transaction as possible. It was a smooth process and I would highly recommend Eric Scott with Performance Brokerage Services.

Blake Salinas
Owner, Friendly Ford

Mark and I first met in early 2023 when he made a visit to our family Chevrolet GMC store in Henderson, Kentucky. He asked what my goals were for my career in the car business, and I told him I wanted to be a car dealer and buy another dealership in our community. Fast forward a few months and we were working to make that happen! Mark and Mark, Jr. helped us purchase the Ford dealership in Henderson and made sure we had a smooth franchise approval and buying process. Big thanks to Mark and Mark, Jr. I would highly recommend them if you are looking to buy or sell!

Kate Faupel Grealish
Owner, Kate Faupel Ford

I want to thank George Chaconas for his help and professionalism in looking at several opportunities. His deeply rooted connections ultimately helped us land on Venice Nissan as the right strategic fit for our expanding footprint. His extensive industry experience, coupled with his long-standing relationship with Greenway Automotive Group, are what enabled us to navigate a complex deal through to a successful conclusion. I look forward to working with George again in the near future and would highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services to anyone considering buying or selling an automotive dealership.

Vernon Krause
CEO, Krause Auto Group

We have a great relationship with Jesse Stopnitzky at Performance Brokerage Services. We've completed two deals with him, and he's managed both transactions at a high level. From matching the right buyer and seller to navigating the unique challenges of each deal, he's a true professional and we enjoy working with him. Most importantly, he's honest and has integrity. He's the kind of person we want to work with.

Loren Baidas
CEO, General RV Center

Seeking advice when I decided to sell the store, I called a friend who had sold his. This was a great decision as he recommended Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services. Jesse was the glue that held the transaction together from beginning to end. We laid out the guidelines of the type of buyer we would like to take over our 38-year-old highly awarded store and that is exactly who he brought to the table. He brought me the right buyer, got the price I wanted, and was there with his wealth of knowledge and experience to guide me through the entire process! I couldn’t ask for more and I would highly recommend Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services.

Ronnie Jordan
President, Independence RV

It was a pleasure working with Jesse Stopnitzky and his family in finding a great home for our company. Jesse’s experience and reputation in our industry made Performance Brokerage Services the perfect organization to identify the best suited buyer who will value and care for our employees. I am thankful for their services. I am also very excited for the future growth of our company and honored we are now part of the General Family.

Box Cox

It’s a winner! Without the outstanding efforts of Performance Brokerage Services, this deal would never have happened.

Jeff Jackson
Owner, South Tacoma Honda

I have found both Moshe Stopnitzky and Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services to be extremely hard-working, honest and diligent. Both gentlemen are extremely knowledgeable and have a passion for what they do.

Ryan Gee
CEO, Gee Automotive Copmpanies

When our family decided to sell our dealership after 53 years in business, we contacted Performance Brokerage Services for their help. After meeting Gershon Rosenzweig and Matt Wilkins from the New Jersey office, I felt an immediate connection to them during that first meeting. They were extremely professional from the very beginning of our working relationship right up to the time of closing. They always made themselves available to answer questions and concerns that you can imagine came into play. I would highly recommend Performance Brokerage to anyone interested in selling their automotive related business. I always felt confident in our relationship with Gershon and Matt, as they made difficult decisions easier for us to deal with. We developed a true friendship with them as well during the process of selling our dealership.

Steve Carmody, Sr.
Owner, B&B Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

I owned Heritage Cycles for 17 years. Although the dealership was not on the market and I was not ready to retire, George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services introduced me to a buyer who was extremely qualified, a perfect fit and wrote an offer that I could not refuse. Selling a family business can be an emotional process, especially when it has been in the family for 34 years. George made the sale of Heritage Cycles Harley-Davidson a very smooth transaction. I am confident that the buyer will continue the legacy my brother began in 1980 and I continued for the past 17 years.

Diane Biancanello
Owner, Heritage Cycles of Fort Walton Beach

Having completed a half dozen acquisitions over the past ten years, working with Courtney and Performance Brokerage Services made our most recent acquisition the smoothest yet. She understood the nuances of working with multiple manufacturers and helped guide the parties through the twists and turns of a typical transaction. We look forward to working with Courtney on future deals and would highly recommend her to buyers and sellers alike.

Michael Lafontaine
Owner, Northland Lawn, Sport & Equipment

The sale of our business was well planned thanks to Courtney Bernhard and Performance Brokerage Services. Their expertise made the entire process smoother, and we knew what to expect at every stage. Courtney found a buyer with similar principles that will continue to serve our customers well.

Andrew Gassert
Co-owner, Moose Lake Implement & Sport

We are very excited about our recent acquisitions of Volvo of Savannah and Volvo of Hilton Head with the help of George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. This was our third acquisition this year with George and PBS. As always, George was a consummate professional and very responsive to everyone’s needs throughout the buy-sell process. I highly recommend George when it’s time for you to consider selling or buying a car dealership!

John Smith, Jr.
President, Smith Auto Group

George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services was referred to us by a large auto dealer after we could not come to terms on a deal. We then realized we needed an experienced and professional automobile broker like George Chaconas to exclusively represent us in what has been a lifetime of ownership. We sent an email to his corporate office, he responded immediately, and visited us within a couple of days. He suggested a deal team of an automotive buy-sell attorney, CPA and a real estate appraiser, etc. to represent us. Since our OEM, Volvo, was aware of our imminent retirement, there were several very interested buyers introduced to us along with George’s proprietary database of qualified buyers. This allowed us to maximize the sale price by having multiple buyers interested in acquiring our two Volvo stores at the same time with surety of closing. We are very happy and appreciative of George’s professionalism, constant contact, support, industry knowledge and expertise. If you are considering retiring like us with no succession plan, now is the perfect time to reach out to George!

Ralph Tolman
President/Owner, Volvo Cars Savannah

After almost 26 years of being a Harley-Davidson dealer, my family and I decided that we should make the emotional, but necessary call to George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. Before contacting George, I reached out to some of my neighboring dealerships in northern California to see how they felt about George and his services. The reports were all very positive. George flew out and met me and my family and worked hard to find the unique buyer for our dealership. Without George's commitment , discipline, persistence and follow through we might not have had such a successful closing. My family wants to personally thank George, and I would recommend him if you are planning on buying or selling your dealership.

Joe Guidera
Owner, Guidera's Harley-Davidson

After working with many different types of people over the years, we quickly recognized George's professionalism, ethics and business acumen and decided to engage him to sell our dealership. George guided us thorough all the moving parts of a buy/sell. You could safely say this deal was much more complicated than Dennis or I thought. George earned his commission and kept the deal moving by being the buffer between the lawyers. He also knew how the deal with the reps at Harley. Now that I've been through it, I wouldn't ever think of doing it myself. George was a gentleman and a great guy, we really enjoyed working with him. Thank you very much, George!

Dennis Atherton & Edwin Adler
Lucky Harley-Davidson, Fort Wayne, Indiana

I’ve been involved in several dealership transactions over the years and have never worked with a better group of guys than Jonny and John Mecham and Performance Brokerage Services. This is our third acquisition using them in the last few years alone, and they continue to find us the right stores for our vision. They see the transaction across the finish line while being honest, aggressive, and hard-working. I consider them trusted friends. I look forward to many more deals with Performance Brokerage for many years to come.

Josh Griffin
Operating Partner, KMS Enterprises, LLC

George Chaconas was instrumental in making this transaction happen through his relentless tenacity and extraordinary professionalism. George is truly an expert in his field.

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!

Travis Ostrom
CEO, TKO Group

I met Dan Argiro three years before my brother, Steve, and I hired him and Pat Albero at Performance Brokerage Services to represent our business. The process was a lot more complex than I had anticipated. Dan and his team, from day one, were always available for guidance and advice throughout the entire process until we had a signed contract with our buyer. Trust and confidentiality were the most important factors to my brother and me when it came time to sell our dealer group. The Performance Team excelled at both. I would recommend Dan, Pat, and Performance Brokerage Services to any dealer looking to buy or sell a dealership.

Reggie Powell
President & Owner, Powell's Truck & Equipment, Inc.

Jonny and John with Performance Brokerage Services did an excellent job both creating and maintaining deal flow throughout the process. The services they provided were invaluable.

John and Jonny were very professional. I would highly recommend their services

Joshua Soares

Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services did a fantastic job finding a buyer for our dealership. We rarely sell dealerships, but when we do, we want the experience to be confidential and seamless. Jason's industry knowledge and his network of high quality buyers helped us find a great fit for the dealership going forward. We always want a deal to benefit all the parties involved and Jason was able to help us realize that in this transaction.

Dave Smith
COO, Larry H. Miller Group

It was a very difficult and emotional transaction. George Chaconas became my trusted advisor and at times my emotional support.

I am very grateful that I can retire knowing George helped me and my family move forward to the next chapter of our lives. I would highly recommend George Chaconas when the time comes for you to retire!

Gregg Young
President

Performance Brokerage Services recently assisted in the sale of my store, Beene Motor Sales in Mexia, to Mike Terry Auto Group. Paul Kechnie and Lori Amato were fabulous to work with. Paul met with me initially and gave me a very professional evaluation of my store’s potential. After identifying Mike as a prospective buyer, they guided the sales process through seamlessly. I would highly recommend their services if you are looking to sell your store!

Brett Beene
President

I had the pleasure of working with Paul Kechnie to acquire my first store in Mexia, Texas. Paul was helpful in not only finding me the right store, but also sharing his knowledge and expertise throughout the process. Paul and his team kept in constant communication, answered any questions I had and did so in a timely, ethical and professional manner. It was a pleasure to work with Performance Brokerage Services and I will most certainly call them again.

Mike Terry
Dealer Principal

From the start, Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services went above and beyond his call of duty to help put a difficult deal together. Jason’s vast knowledge and experience made the transaction easy from start to finish. This was our second and third transactions with Performance Brokerage, and Jason exceeded all of our expectations.

John Thomas

The expertise and professionalism we received from Performance Brokerage Services is like no other. My longtime friend, Jason Stopnitzky, did more than deliver. His network of clients and vast knowledge of acquisitions stood out when I had more than one offer! He is a true gentleman, extremely professional, and his thoughtfulness made this acquisition easy. Thank you so much, Jason, and to your staff at Performance Brokerage Services.

Joe Smith
President, Epic Chevrolet & Folsom Buick GMC

The Shackelford's were very engaging in helping me come to terms with selling my family's business of 65+ years, which was not an easy decision. They brought me a very qualified buyer and helped me understand the process and documents needed to get the job done. It's really nice to see a father-son team working together in this day and age. Both were very polite and professional. They made the transaction smooth and non-regrettable. Well done gentlemen.

Bruce Abraham
Dealer Principal, Charles Auto Family

We have completed our second transaction with Performance Brokerage Services, and again, it has been a pleasure working with Mark Shackelford and Mark Shackelford, Jr. I couldn’t be happier with the experience. Their responsiveness and dedication were truly impressive. They took the time to understand our needs to expand, and worked diligently to find a dealership that would fit and help us continue to grow. Mark’s expertise in the automotive industry was evident throughout the process. He truly understands the market and is committed to delivering exceptional results. I highly recommend Mark Shackelford for anyone looking to sell or acquire a dealership.

Joe Sarchione

This new dealership is an important addition to the Fox Motors portfolio, and we give credit to Performance for making it happen. From the moment the Performance team presented us with this opportunity, we knew we were in good and capable hands. Working with Paul Kechnie, Mark Shackelford and Mark Shackelford, Jr. was a pleasure. We look forward to working with their team again in the future.

Diane R. Maher
President & COO, Fox Motors

I had the pleasure of working with Mark Shackelford and Performance Brokerage when we decided to list our dealership, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Mark's responsiveness and dedication were truly impressive. He took the time to understand our dealership's unique value proposition and worked diligently to find a buyer who recognized its potential. His expertise in the automotive industry was evident throughout the process, and his ability to communicate effectively ensured a smooth transaction. I highly recommend Mark Shackelford for anyone looking to sell their dealership with a professional who truly understands the market and is committed to delivering exceptional results.

Another exclusive sell-side deal done with George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. With the help of his partner, Courtney Bernhard, they were successful in the sale of Mulholland Harley-Davison in Calabasas, California! Thank you very much for your professionalism, industry knowledge, perseverance, and tenacity. I have known George for 20 years and have done many dealership transactions with him. I would not hesitate to do more as we grow our organization strategically!

Rodin Younessi
President, Los Angeles Harley-Davidson

“We had been thinking of selling like most dealers over the last few years if the number was right. More important was finding the right partner to continue our legacy and allow us to stay on to transition our family business of 50 years. We had been approached to sell by several large Florida and out of state auto dealership groups and public companies. However, George brought us exactly what we had asked from him and what we were looking for in a buyer. George’s industry expertise and experience allowed us to quickly negotiate a deal just before Christmas and then the pandemic hit. George kept me focused on continuing to operate our business while he kept our deal from falling apart. I am incredibly happy and extremely satisfied with George’s expertise, honesty, and transparency. If you are considering selling your family dealership, I would sincerely recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.”

Stephen Mastro
Owner

Buying or selling an auto dealership can be a challenging transaction. I was happy to have people with experience like Paul Kechnie and Performance Brokerage Services to work through the details with me. Paul was always available, professional, and fair. Paul and Performance Brokerage Services have my recommendation!

Scott Bement

“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.”

Rami Yanni

I have worked with Paul on several acquisitions and he is always a true professional, and just a great guy! He works very hard not only to find us opportunities, but then navigates them through closing.

Gregg Young
President

As a dealer for over 29 years, selling your dealerships is a very emotional decision. It affects many employees and their families, especially those who believed in you and your vision. When I decided to retire, I wanted to find a broker who had the experience, the connections in the industry, and the empathy for the decision I made. I found that person in Paul Kechnie from Performance Brokerage Services. Paul not only found an extremely qualified buyer in Gregg Young of Gregg Young Automotive Group, for both of my stores, he also found the right match of cultures and integrity that I was looking for. Paul had the expertise to navigate and close the sale to the benefit of both the seller and the buyer. I would highly recommend Paul Kechnie, as he is a true professional and a great person!

Stu Winarski
President/Owner

I used Performance Brokerage Services to acquire a new car dealership in June. My experience with John and Jonny Mecham was professional and delightful. They kept me informed of the status and progress of the transaction and communicated with me on a very professional and timely manner. It was indeed a pleasure dealing with them and this company to accomplish our desired outcome.

Spencer Young
President, Young Automotive Group

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!”

Joel Wheeler

We would highly recommend Courtney and Performance Brokerage Services for the sale of your dealership.

David Wright

It's hard to believe it's been over 7 years since George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services introduced me to my first Harley-Davidson dealership. We are now on our fifth buy-sell! It was very exciting and awesome to work with George again and his partner, Courtney Bernhard, on our latest acquisition of Redding Harley-Davidson in Redding, California. Their professionalism, industry expertise, experience, and most importantly, their ability to help manage the transition and sale for a family business of almost 50 years is unparalleled in the industry.

John Mecham and the team at Performance Brokerage Services go above and beyond the expected role of a dealership broker. They work hard to ensure that their transactions go as smoothly as possible. John does an excellent job of providing insight into each deal. My group has successfully completed six transactions with their assistance, on both buying and selling sides, and have found them to be honest and with complete integrity in all situations, and their market knowledge is invaluable. I consider John and the team at Performance Brokerage to be reliable and result driven. I also consider them to be good friends.

Dan Taylor

Dimmitt Automotive Group was presented with an opportunity to acquire Cycle Springs Powersports, which is located in our backyard in Clearwater, Florida. We reached out to industry expert George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. I knew George was the guy to hire as our consultant to help us navigate unknown waters with our first powersports dealership acquisition. He and his team did a great job. I have known George personally and professionally for over 25 years. We sincerely appreciate George and his team’s professionalism, industry experience, knowledge and relationships with the OEMs that helped us finally get to a closing. When you are considering buying or selling a powersports or automotive dealership, I would most highly recommend George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services.

Scott Larguier
CEO, Dimmitt Automotive Group

Having recently acquired a Subaru dealership through George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services as a buyer’s agent, it made sense to engage him to market and sell Sutherlin Nissan of Ft. Pierce. George was the consummate dealmaker and professional to manage the process and sale! I look forward to working with George and his team to buy more car stores!

Brett Sutherlin
CEO, Sutherlin Automotive Group

We have now done numerous transactions with Performance Brokerage. They continue to bring us offerings we like. We find them professional and trustworthy.

COO

Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services is one of the major reasons we are where we are today. Jason is not your typical broker. He is more like a 5-star, personal concierge service who truly cares about you. 

Jason and his team are top notch. They helped us purchase our first dealership 18 months ago and we now wrapped up our second one with them. The team at PBS handles their clients like family. They are available, willing to listen, and able to work through tough situations. There are no easy deals, yet with PBS, it all becomes easy. They are consummate professionals and I can't say enough about them. 

If it were up to me, I would do all my deals with them. They don't play games, there are no surprises, and they keep it real. I'm sure these are traits learned from Moshe, Jason’s father, who is the founder of the company.  

The fact that Jason called me back when I was looking to buy my first store, with no prior experience of ownership, and spoke with me for almost an hour to understand my needs and situation, tells you everything you need to know. Keep in mind all of this was free. Not a dollar charged. I owe Jason and Performance Brokerage Services a lot more than these words. I'm forever thankful and look forward to building our empires together.

Dealer Principal, Aaron Auto Group

I would like to take this opportunity to offer my formal recommendation of Jason Stopnitzky with Performance Brokerage Services. I’ve personally known Jason for many years and have relied on his expertise as a broker. Jason did an outstanding job arranging and streamlining the process of our most recent sale. Jason and his team were there every step of the way. His vast knowledge and business acumen were invaluable in bringing both parties together for a smooth acquisition. I highly recommend Jason to any Dealer Principal interested in being represented by a truly knowledgeable and hardworking professional.

President, Anderson Auto Group

We are very excited about our new partnership with Polaris and Indian as we continue to bring brands with the highest levels of quality to our customers. We also believe that bringing John Deere Turf and Utility products to the Spirit Lake area demonstrates C & B’s commitment to that strategy. Please come and check out the store!

Peter Burwell
C & B Powersports

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.

Jim Schlier
Pocono Mountain Harley-Davidson, Tannersville

I have worked with Paul Kechnie of Performance Brokerage Services on several acquisitions, and he is always a true professional and just a great guy too! He had to work hard on finding this one, but he knew I wanted a Toyota store, and he kept digging until he found the right opportunity. We are enjoying working with Toyota and Ford to grow their market share in Ottumwa, Iowa.

Gregg Young
President, Gregg Young Automotive Group

I met Paul Kechnie of Performance Brokerage Services a couple years ago and we have since become friends. My store was not for sale, but I told Paul if the right conditions and right buyer came along, I would keep an open mind. Paul delivered. Even when it seemed to fizzle out, Paul kept the train on the tracks, kept everybody focused and calm, and consulted like a friend. The closing went smoothly, and Paul’s buyer was respectful and good to work with, but this deal never would have happened without Paul.

Joe Clemons
CEO, Clemons Toyota Ford Lincoln

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.

Thanks again Jason and Performance for your help!

We would recommend Jason and his team without hesitation for any acquisition or sale.

Navi Singh
President, Ride Automotive

When I made the decision to sell my dealership, there was only one person I decided to call and that was Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services. I’ve known Jason throughout the years, but this was the first time I have worked with him. Jason found us a buyer in a short amount of time and was a pleasure to deal with. He was there every step of the way and the deal closed smoothly and as agreed-upon. I would be more than happy to go to Jason in the future to buy or sell another dealership.

Roert Bayer
President, Simi Valley CDJR

Many thanks to Paul for his invaluable assistance and guidance during our recent acquisition.

“George Chaconas and I stay in touch often to discuss the buy-sell market. George helped us buy two very successful Harley-Davidson dealerships in the past. When he mentioned an opportunity to buy Los Angeles Harley-Davidson, my partners and I were intrigued by the idea of expanding into Southern California as we grow Pacific Motorcycle Group. Shortly thereafter, we were under contract and had a smooth transaction. I would like to express my sincere appreciation and thanks to George for helping us once again!

Andrew Westbrook
Partner, Pacific Motorcycle Group

We cannot speak highly enough of Pat Albero and Performance Brokerage Services. Throughout the entire process, Pat and his team were there for my family, providing guidance and support every step of the way. Their knowledge and expertise were apparent from the outset, and they were able to secure a buyer who truly understood the value of my dealership and its significance in our local community. With Pat’s help, we were able to achieve maximum value for our dealership and ensure that our employees’ futures are secure. If you’re looking to sell your dealership and want a team that will work diligently to ensure your goals are met, we highly recommend contacting Performance Brokerage Services. Thank you for all your hard work!

Our experience with Performance Brokerage Services on our acquisition of Kenworth of South Florida was excellent. Dan Argiro and Pat Albero provided an outstanding level of service and expertise, which we have come to expect from their talented team. Their attention to detail and commitment to the needs of the transaction were evident throughout the process. As a growing organization, we understand the importance of working with best-in-class firms that can assist us in achieving our goals. Performance Brokerage Services is undoubtedly this type of provider, and we were impressed by the quality of their work and the value they brought to the transaction. We highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services to any organization seeking a firm that can provide exceptional service and expertise. Dan and Pat’s professionalism, industry knowledge, and dedication to their clients make them valuable assets to any growth-focused business.

Andy Franklin
CEO, All Roads

From our very first conversation, it was clear that Jesse Stopnitzky was not what I had expected in a broker. He was much more! He took the time to get to know me and my business in a very detailed and personal manner. I knew that my business was not a big deal for their firm, but I was always treated with the priority of a huge client. Jesse was involved in the deal from start to finish, and beyond. He was available 24/7 for any question or concern that I had. I could not have asked for a better partner on one of life’s biggest decisions. Anyone looking to sell owes it to themselves to talk to Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services before taking your business to market. I am so glad that I did!

Aaron Johnston
President, Johnston RV Country

I had the pleasure to work with Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services on our recent sale of Findlay RV. Jesse was extremely diligent and professional throughout the entire process. His knowledge of the RV business was a big factor in completing the transaction. I especially appreciated his honesty and straight-forward approach to the marketing and negotiation process. I highly recommend Jesse Stopnitzky and the team at Performance Brokerage Services.

Tyler Corder
CFO, Findlay Automotive Group

Jesse Stopnitzky and his team have been an absolute pleasure to work with. We had a lot of questions, uncertainty, anxiety, and stress, all of which Jesse helped us work through and helped us keep our sanity. Selling a 42-year-old family business is a tough decision, which Performance Brokerage understands. They explained the process and worked with us through every step. Had it not been for the professionalism, empathy, knowledge and experience of Jesse and his team, we would have never been successful in selling the business. They worked hard to understand our business history and what we wanted in a buyer, then found the perfect fit for us.

Terry Sinkler
U-Neek RV, Washington

Our experience working with Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services was exceptional. They were professional, responsive, and helpful in the acquisition. We look forward to working with them again in the future.

Curt Curtis
President, RV Country

Our experience with Jesse Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services was great. He’s direct, to the point, and transparent.

Denver Beck
CEO, Optimum Dealership Group

Jesse Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services is the ultimate professional. He has a detailed knowledge of not only all the players in my market, but every market across the country. He always answered his phone no matter what time of day or where he was, which tells me a lot about the person I am dealing with. I would tell anybody, don’t waste your time with anybody else, Jesse is a 10 out of 10.

President, Tim Baker
Muskegon RV

We chose Performance Brokerage to assist us in selling our dealership. Jesse Stopnitzky and his team were great. They were professional and attentive to all we needed through the entire process. Thank you, Jesse, for helping to make this transition a reality.

Mark Black
President, Stewart's RV

Are you thinking about selling your RV dealership? If so, you probably have a lot of unanswered questions like we did. You have to consider what is best for you and your family, your employees, and your community. After interviewing a few brokers, based on our discussions and our concerns, we really felt there was only one choice for us. That choice was Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services, who have sold over 700 dealerships across the country and are also family-owned. It was refreshing to find a broker that really listened and understood our concerns and what we were trying to accomplish. Jesse was very helpful in designing a plan that fit all of our needs for our family, employees and community. He found likeminded people that had the same care that we had, another family value based group in Bish’s RV. Jesse truly demonstrated honesty and integrity throughout every step of the process and hit all the marks in matching us with the right buyer. He helped make our transition as seamless as possible. I highly recommend Jesse Stopnitzky and his family at Performance Brokerage Services to anyone considering selling their RV dealership.

Dave Haylett
President, Haylett Auto & RV Supercenter, Michigan

I have known George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services for almost ten years since he became an active member of NAMAD. It was a pleasure to finally work with George to acquire Bohn Ford in Harvey, Louisiana from Group 1 Automotive. He was very professional, always available and instrumental in helping get this buy-sell done. I highly encourage you to reach out to George and his team at Performance for all your buy-sell needs.

Damian Mills
Mills Automotive Group

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.

Paul Veracka
Owner, PVM Enterprises

When I first made the call to Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services, I was unsure of the process. As I began to see Jesse operate and experienced his quality of service, I became much more relaxed, which I appreciated so much. I had no idea the problems that would crop up, and Jesse did all he could do to help resolve them. I could not have done this by myself. His service was excellent and he was invaluable to me. If you are considering selling a dealership, I highly recommend the team at Performance Brokerage Services.

Ronnie Hoelzer
President, Lloyd's RV Center

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!

Rodin Younessi
President, Los Angeles Harley-Davidson of Anaheim

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.

Jarrod McGhee
Founder & CEO, Fun Town RV

I was contacted by Pat Albero from Performance Brokerage Services because he had an interested buyer looking for an equipment dealership in East Texas. The timing couldn’t have been better! Pat has been excellent to work with throughout the entire transaction. He was always available to answer questions, and he guided me through the process of selling my dealership. I would highly recommend Pat Albero and Performance Brokerage Services if you are exploring the sale of your dealership. You will be happy you made the call

Jarred Conroy
Owner, Conroy Tractors

I have known Performance Brokerage Services for many years. After selling my automotive dealership group to a large buyer, my family was looking for our first acquisition in the equipment industry. Performance had an equipment division, and we engaged Pat Albero to help us find a dealership that met our needs in East Texas. After a short period of time, we were introduced to Jarred and Conroy Tractor. It couldn’t have been a better fit! The process went smoothly, and our family is excited to be in the industry. We are looking forward to our next acquisition with Pat and the Performance Team!

Rick Ford
President & CEO, RJF Auto Partners

We knew we would be very picky about who we chose to lead and care for our team. We wanted someone who could bring resources, training, and experience that would help our strong, devoted team continue to thrive! Jesse Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services helped us find the perfect match. There were a lot of events in the previous couple of years that led us to Jesse, and we are grateful God put that path in place for us. We couldn’t imagine going through this extensive and emotional process without him to help. Jesse and his team place value on finding the right buyer because they truly understand what it means to part with a business that your family built. Not only did he help walk us through the process, but he eased fears, gave advice, and stayed involved to help with anything he could the entire way. We highly recommend him and his team. Their experience was invaluable.

Stephanie Pierce
President, Dave's Claremore RV

Through our strategic acquisition of Kansas City Freightliner, we had the pleasure of working with Dan Argiro and Performance Brokerage Services. Dan’s professionalism and integrity were second to none.

Richard Shearing
President, Premier Truck Group

This is our second acquisition with Performance Brokerage Services. Dan Argiro and Pat Albero remained involved throughout the entire process to the deal’s completion. In our experience, they are honest, ethical, and committed to their clients. We executed this transaction in record time, and it happened because the right people came together. We would recommend Dan and Pat at Performance to other dealers looking to buy or sell a dealership.

Fred Scheler
President, Five Star International, LLC

We first heard about Dan Argiro and Pat Albero from Performance Brokerage Services after their recent sale of another International dealer. They came highly recommended, and we felt it was the right time for us to exit the business. From the beginning, they set the expectation that they would be available 24/7. Their process from start to finish was extraordinary. Their knowledge of how this all works is second to none. They ask the right questions to get the best deal for their clients, and getting this deal done in record time was outstanding. We highly recommend Dan and Pat if you’re considering buying or selling a dealership. My brother and I are now looking forward to our retirement.

Tom Noerr
President, Noerr’s International

It was a pleasure working with Dan Argiro and Performance Brokerage Services. Dan was instrumental when it came to the acquisition of Legacy Truck Centers. His professionalism, integrity, and honesty were second to none. Dan is the gentleman you want to have in your corner if you are looking for an acquisition, or want to find a good buyer for your dealership. I look forward to working with Dan and Performance on future acquisitions.

Ron Meyering
CEO, M&K Truck Centers

Buying and selling a dealership is a complex process, and finding the right buyer, at the right price, is even more difficult. I reached out to Dan Argiro at Performance Brokerage Services when my brother, John, and I were considering selling our dealer group. I liked that Dan specialized in Commercial Truck Dealerships and wanted to learn more about the process. We eventually hired Dan and Performance, and they did not let us down. Dan always did what he said and came through in the end. He was always available and in constant communication. Dan helped guide us through the entire process; from collecting the best data to value our business, to meeting and negotiating with potential buyers, through the closing, and still continues to follow up weeks later. He lived up to his promise about bringing an honorable and trustworthy buyer to continue the Legacy of our dealer group. Along with your Attorney and CPA, Dan is the type of broker you want to have on your team if you are buying or selling a dealership. We certainly recommend Dan Argiro and Performance Brokerage Services. Thanks to Dan, I’m now enjoying great days with M & K!

Matt Niebauer
President, Legacy Truck Centers

The Nacarato team looks forward to making a positive impact in the Palm Beach community for many years to come. We would like to thank Dan Argiro and his team at Performance Brokerage Services for helping us with this transaction.

Mike Nacarato
President, Nacarato Truck Centers

From the first time we met Dan Argiro, Pat Albero, and Alex Argiro from Performance Brokerage Services, we knew we were in good hands. In addition to finding the right buyer, confidentiality was our top concern. Dan and the team worked tirelessly to advise our family on the best steps to take and when to take them. We considered selling the dealership ourselves, but without Performance Brokerage we would not have been able to maximize the value of our dealership, find the right buyer, and run our business, all while protecting confidentiality. We feel like we got the best deal possible for our family business, and we couldn’t have done it without the Performance team. We are elated with the outcome of this transaction and excited to welcome the Nacarato team to Palm Beach. If you are thinking about exploring a sale, my brothers and I would highly recommend calling Dan Argiro and the Performance Brokerage Services team.

Leonard DeSanti
President, Volvo Trucks of Palm Beach

We enjoyed working with George Chaconas and the team at Performance Brokerage Services. George is a consummate professional, one of the most experienced brokers in the industry and has become a great friend throughout our years of working together. We look forward to working with George and his team again in the future. Damian Mills is building one of the foremost dealer groups in the country and both he and his team were great to work with throughout this process. We wish them the best of success in New Orleans and beyond.

Jamie Albertine
VP of Corporate Development, Group 1 Automotive

I have now had the pleasure of closing my fifth transaction with Performance Brokerage Services. It was a pleasure working with Matt Wilkins and Gershon Rosenzweig on this deal and I look forward to more in the future. They put our interests first, work hard to make a complicated process seem easy, and above all else, they are good people. They always make themselves available to answer questions, help resolve issues, and go above and beyond. They took their time getting to know us so they could bring us the right opportunities and never stretched the truth. These guys are unbelievable and will put in the work to earn your trust. They are first on our list and should be first on yours too.

John Leonardi
Key Auto Group

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. Within a short time, they found me the perfect opportunity. I am very excited about the acquisition of George Coleman Ford, and glad I trusted George and Courtney again to help complete another deal. I look forward to working together in the future!

John Smith

I recently sold my Ford dealership with the assistance of Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services. There were many requirements needed to make this transaction happen, especially since the store has been in business for 93 years under ownership of our family. Courtney was patient and engaged throughout the entire process. She brought me a buyer, John Smith Jr. from Smith Automotive Group, who was a perfect fit. My entire team is staying onboard, and I think that George Coleman Ford will be even more successful under John’s leadership. Congratulations to John and thank you to Courtney for making this deal a true success.

Gregg Coleman

Our family appreciated the way Gershon Rosenzweig and Matt Wilkins of Performance Brokerage Services listened to our wishes to find us a good buyer. They persevered and found us the right family to take over the reins at our 50-year dealership. They understood all the nooks and crannies of the transaction, resulting in an easy transition.

Larry Begnal

When you sit at an intersection in life with a dream you hope to come true, you want Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services by your side for the journey. I was at such a junction in early December of 2022 when Jason and I first connected. Jason created a confidential space, listened, and shortly after, presented me with a franchise opportunity. Jason’s level of commitment throughout every complex stage as well as his generosity of time and knowledge in critical periods were invaluable. He was tenacious, dependable, and stayed focused throughout the process. This was my first acquisition and Jason made it happen in California, where the process is challenging. Volkswagen is the brand I started my career with over 30 years ago, and now my dreams are realized. I could not have done this without the level of professionalism Jason demonstrated from the moment we met to the day of closing. The word “NO” was never an option to Jason, and we felt encouraged every step of the way. I am very grateful for all that Jason and his team have done for me and my family!

Phil Alalouf

How do I spell commitment, humanity, integrity, and reliability? Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services. Very rarely do I meet people that go to the extremes that Jason does to take care of their clients. He is a real gem! Jason is someone that I can call at any time and he always answers my call. Jason today is no longer just my broker, rather part of my family, and someone I trust wholeheartedly. Jason, thanks for who you are and what you do and the difference you’ve made in our lives. My partners Pete Shaver, Armina Mgerian and I are in debt to you.

Bob Nouri

One of the best things that ever happened to us was meeting Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services. Jason’s word is his bond and we’ve never felt this good about working with someone. Jason’s assistance with our acquisition of Worthington Ford was priceless.

Bob Nouri

John and Jonny Mecham of Performance Brokerage Services have always been a trusted resource of mine. They understand the complexities of the business and have a tremendous amount of experience. This was not our first transaction with the Mecham's and it won’t be the last. They did a terrific job bringing both parties together, and the transaction was smooth from start to finish. I think both parties would agree it was a win-win. I would confidently recommend John, Jonny, and Performance Brokerage Services.

Casey Wheeler

We worked with Jonny and his father, John Mecham, of Performance Brokerage Services to sell our dealership. Being in a small town, we were worried about the ability to sell our store as well as maintaining confidentiality. Jonny and John were truly assets to the transaction. The process was foreign to us, but Jonny was available to guide us through each step with his expertise and found a buyer that fit our small-town needs. We were very pleased with the outcome and recommend Jonny and John Mecham to anyone.

Kirk Jensen

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.

Fred Bosshardt

I would like to thank Performance Brokerage Services for their professionalism, expertise, follow-up, and responsiveness in our buy-sell transaction. They were extremely helpful in consummating the deal. If you are considering buying or selling a marine/boat dealership, please consider them.

Bill Fulton

We were on the fence when it came to the decision to sell our dealer group or make a hard push to expand. We had heard about Performance Brokerage Services and some of the larger deals they had brokered in our industry. We reached out to Dan Argiro and Pat Albero to learn more about the process. We wanted to see if it made sense for us to use a broker instead of trying to sell the dealerships ourselves. As we got to know Dan and Pat, we decided to partner with Performance Brokerage to help us find the best buyer for our group. We continued to run our dealerships as if they were not for sale and maintained the day-to-day operations. Performance Brokerage took care of the rest. From the calls to the emails, to vetting buyers, they did it all. They were instrumental in helping us establish the right value for our group and finding the right buyer. We were adamant about strict confidentiality, and they exceeded our expectations. Their advice was sound, and they conducted themselves in a professional and ethical manner at every step of the transaction. We highly recommend Dan and Pat of Performance Brokerage Services if you want to buy or sell a dealership.

Todd Hays
President, Kenworth of South Florida

Juan Pardo at Performance Brokerage Services introduced me to several Harley-Davidson dealership opportunities, but Boneyard Harley-Davidson was the right fit to be my first acquisition. Juan was instrumental not only in working with Marc and Jerry, but also with Harley-Davidson Motor Company in getting the deal done. Although I had acquired businesses in the past, the unique process involved in getting approved as a Harley-Davidson dealer was something I couldn’t have done or been prepared for without the help of Juan and George. I am excited to be partnering with the current GM, Bobbie Krull, as we continue the dealership’s great success. If you are in the market to acquire a Harley-Davidson dealership, I would look no further than the team at Performance Brokerage Services to help you in your search.

Steven Towers
Seller, Boneyard Harley-Davidson

Jerry and I had great success in Winterville, NC but felt it was the right time to focus on our Ohio dealerships. We decided to hire the industry experts and professionals, George Chaconas and Juan Pardo of Performance Brokerage Services, to help find the right buyer who would continue the great success we had. Making sure our GM and staff were matched up with the right buyer was something these guys were sensitive to, and they brought the right buyer to the table.

Finding Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Service was the key to selling my RV dealership,” said Bill Clark, President of The Great Outdoors RV Superstore. “Jesse was vested in a positive outcome from the start and never took his eye off the ball! His expertise brought me a deal within weeks and closed 90 days later. The time he took to get to know my family and me was an added bonus. Jesse’s integrity, perseverance and sense of humor sets him aside from the rest. I highly recommend Jesse Stopnitzky and the Performance team to anyone considering selling or buying in the RV market.

Bill Clark
President, The Great Outdoors RV Superstore

When I decided to sell and retire, it created a big dilemma for me. Who do I sell to? Who would be a good match for my dealership, my employees, and my customers? How do I contact them? And if I sell, I want the new owners to take care of my customers and employees the way I do. Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services found the perfect match for me. Performance Brokerage Services was an excellent choice. Jesse & Jason Stopnitzky are very good at what they do. Jesse was instrumental in getting my dealership aligned with the best match for my employees and my customers. Their guidance through the entire process shows their strength and longevity in helping owners make the right choice in selling their dealerships. If you are considering selling an RV dealership, I recommend them very highly.

Brad Scott
Founder, Scott's Motor Coach Sales

Dimmitt Automotive Group was presented with an opportunity to acquire Cycle Springs Powersports, which is located in our backyard in Clearwater, Florida. We reached out to industry expert George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. I knew George was the guy to hire as our consultant to help us navigate unknown waters with our first powersports dealership acquisition. He and his team did a great job. I have known George personally and professionally for over 25 years. We sincerely appreciate George and his team’s professionalism, industry experience, knowledge and relationships with the OEMs that helped us finally get to a closing. When you are considering buying or selling a powersports or automotive dealership, I would most highly recommend George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services.

Scott Larguier
CEO, Dimmitt Automotive Group

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.

Tom McCreery, Seller
Four Corners Harley-Davidson, New Mexico

We worked with George C. Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services on the successful acquisition of East Coast Harley-Davidson in Dumfries, VA. Most recently, George showed us the perfect Harley-Davidson dealership he had listed for sale in our adjacent market, Waugh Harley-Davidson in Orange, Virginia. George was very helpful and professional in bringing the parties together to consummate a successful transaction. We highly recommend George and Performance if you are in the market to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership.

Gardner Britt, President
Ted Britt Automotive Group, Virginia

We are very happy with the effort George Chaconas put in to help us make our deal happen. Many times in an acquisition the broker can get in the way and stall a deal. George knew when to input himself and when to back off which made it a very pleasant experience. He knew both players well and what was important to both, which enabled us to complete the deal very quickly. We were happy with the end result which was a quick, easy transaction. Thanks George.

Bob Rubin, CFO
Harley-Davidson Dealership Group, Multi-States

I want to express my appreciation for all of your hard work on our recent transaction. Identifying a potential purchase who would see the value in our situation and helping such a purchaser to enter into a contract which was fair for both parties required an incredible amount of focus by you and your associates.

Selling a dealership the size and complexity of Fort Lauderdale Harley-Davidson is not without its unexpected circumstances. Your guidance and help in that regard was material to our having a transaction which closed on time, within the parameters of our agreement. Not always the case when guidance of your stature is not available.

I personally thank you for all of your hard work on everyone's behalf. The result for my associates, the purchase and their associates, and you and your associates was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend you and/or your company to represent a seller's interest when undertaking a transaction of this nature.

George Chaconas and I stay in touch often to discuss the buy-sell market. George helped us buy two very successful Harley-Davidson dealerships in the past. When he mentioned an opportunity to buy Los Angeles Harley-Davidson, my partners and I were intrigued by the idea of expanding into Southern California as we grow Pacific Motorcycle Group. Shortly thereafter, we were under contract and had a smooth transaction. I would like to express my sincere appreciation and thanks to George for helping us once again!

Andrew Westbrook, Partner

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.

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!

When we were in the market to get into the Harley-Davidson and powersports business, one name kept surfacing as a Harley-Davidson expert, George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. George introduced us to the Cowboy dealerships and we are excited to have acquired all of them and grow our footprint in Texas. Teddy Morse and I want to thank George and his team for helping facilitate this very large and special acquisition. We thank him for bringing us the opportunity and look forward to growing these dealerships while we diversify our automotive holdings and geography.”

Randy Hoffman, COO
Ed Morse Automotive Group

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.

Toby O'Brien, Seller

Looking to continue to expand our presence in Florida, George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services introduced us to Beach Blvd Motorsports & Marine in Jacksonville, Florida. It was a perfect strategic fit for our other dealerships in the market. Having worked with George for almost 20 years, it was another great experience and successful acquisition. I look forward to working with George and his team in the near future. If you are considering selling or retiring soon, now is the time to get ahead of the possible increase in capital gains taxes. Don’t wait, call George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services now!

Mark Tkach, CEO

I got into the motorcycle business to fulfill a dream. I had a vision of growth and eventually a succession plan. George Chaconas has been part of our team of succession since we bought our first Harley-Davidson store with George's help years ago. Since then, he has sold five of our Harley-Davidson dealerships. George is my go-to guy. He’s available anytime, very professional and ethical. I am very thankful and sincerely appreciate his hard work and dedication. We have become friends over the years too. If you are ever considering buying or selling your store, I would highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services!

Scott Fischer, President
Multi-State Harley-Davidson Group

George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services approached me on behalf of a client to consider selling my Harley-Davidson dealership. After careful consideration, I was open to discussions. This led to a successful closing on the sale of my Harley-Davidson dealership. I highly recommend George Chaconas to help you sell your dealership, as he was persistent, professional and exhibited exceptional follow-up.

Joe Cardinale, President

Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services did a fantastic job finding a buyer for our dealership. We rarely sell dealerships, but when we do, we want the experience to be confidential and seamless. Jason’s industry knowledge and his network of high quality buyers helped us find a great fit for the dealership going forward. We always want a deal to benefit all parties involved and Jason was able to help us realize that in this transaction.

My partners and I decided to explore acquiring another Harley-Davidson dealership and since we bought our last store from George Chaconas, I reached out to him for new opportunities. He identified and we acquired Sound Harley-Davidson in Marysville, Washington. George was very instrumental and professional in helping us with the negotiations and throughout the closing process, especially through this unprecedented pandemic. He’s an industry expert with 20 years of experience in buy-sells and we highly recommend him and Performance Brokerage Services.

Andrew Westbrook, Partner
Pacific Motorcycle Group

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to be a Harley-Davidson Dealer for almost 15 years. I will retire with mixed emotions and many fond memories. I give God a lot of credit for this, but George Chaconas and Juan Pardo made it happen. Thank you for being there for me, thank you for putting up with my frustrations and rants, thank you for calming me down, and thank you for your friendship. I would highly recommend George and his team at Performance Brokerage Services when selling your dealership!

Scott Smernis, Seller
Sound H-D of Marysville, Washington

It has been a real pleasure to work with Mark Shackelford and Paul Kechnie of Performance Brokerage Services. I feel they are the best automotive dealership brokerage firm in the business. They are honest and fair in negotiating the deal, and they deliver what they say they will for the client. Not only was Mark there from start to finish throughout the process, but we also talked weekly to make sure I was doing well, and to keep the transaction moving forward and to the finish line. My wife, Kim, and I appreciate the special attention Mark and Paul paid to our specific needs. I am happy to recommend Mark and the Performance team to anyone looking for a very reputable firm that will get the job done.

Mark VanMatre, Seller
VanMatre Buick GMC

I'm the kind of guy that walks into a dealership and introduces myself to the owner as someone who's interested in their store. With this mindset, I never saw any value in working with a broker until I received a phone call from Jason Stopnitzky. When my initial negotiations on my Watsonville deal fell apart, Jason was able to help bridge the differences and keep the deal together throughout the entire process. Jason made a huge difference in my experience by how he was able to pull everything and everyone together to make the difference in getting this deal to the finish line and keeping it there! Jason is now a dear friend of mine and I am a customer for life.

Melvin Cooper, Buyer
Mid Bay Ford & Monterey CDJR, California

George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage reached out to me numerous times over the past few years to discuss and consider acquiring our neighboring multi-line dealership, including Harley-Davidson. At first, we were skeptical as we had never owned a Harley-Davidson dealership before. However, my family has been Harley riders and enthusiasts for a very long time. George helped us to understand the great opportunity to make the strategic move. We are very excited to expand into Farmington, New Mexico as many of our loyal customers reside in the area and we believe strongly that we can take the dealership to the next level. As with any large acquisition, there were numerous obstacles, and George was instrumental in making it happen. Thank you very much for helping us grow!

Joe Washburn, Buyer
Fun Center Cycles, Colorado

It was a pleasure doing business with Courtney Bernhard and George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. This transaction, like all buy-sells, had its own series of challenges, but Courtney provided a great line of communication to help the deal sail to a close. The perseverance shown by Courtney and her team is greatly appreciated, and I look forward to working with them again in the near future.

Chad Martin, President
Martin Management Group

Working with George and Juan from Performance Brokerage Services was an absolute pleasure. The team was very responsive and accurate on information. I immediately knew I was dealing with professionals that know what they are doing. I look forward to using them in the future as we continue to grow!

Ty Bullard, Partner
Joe Bullard Auto Group, Alabama

Over the last several years, I have acquired two dealerships with the help of George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services. I felt George would be the best advisor to exclusively represent me in the sale of Mobile Chevrolet. George is a very experienced deal maker and was extremely professional, hardworking, honest and transparent throughout the entire sales process and I look forward to working with George again. I would highly recommend George if you are considering selling or buying a car store!

Roger Tovar, President
Multi-State Dealer Group

After more than 37 years, more than 20 dealerships, and numerous transactions, I have to admit that none of my opportunities would have been available without the assistance of Moshe Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services. For that, I am truly grateful and blessed to have had him and his company in my life. Every dealership that they presented to me, I bought, and none of these stores were on the market. My phone doesn’t ring from other dealers offering me an opportunity to purchase their stores. I have relied 100% on Moshe to grow as a dealer and as a person, after years of buying and increasing rooftops. Moshe convinced me that it was time to start downsizing before it was too late, and I thank him. He advised me to sell my first dealership, Gresham Dodge, and within a day he had a buyer that was qualified and excited about the purchase. We closed in 120 days with Moshe driving the deal all the way to closing. Boyland Auto Group would not be in existence without Mr. Stopnitzky.

Dorian Boyland, CEO & President

“Working with Dan Argiro and Performance Brokerage Services on the acquisition of our latest International dealership was been a very smooth and pleasant experience! Dan made the process as easy as possible and was always available to answer questions. I would recommend Dan to help any dealer looking to buy or sell a dealership.”

Fred Scheler, President
Five Star International, LLC

“I sell trucks. I don’t sell truck dealerships.” That’s the first thing I said to Dan Argiro at Performance Brokerage Services when we met. I trusted Dan and Performance to sell my dealership after 64 years in the family. I couldn’t be more pleased with the service, professionalism, honesty, and integrity that Dan brought to this deal. He was always available nights, weekends, and holidays. Communication is critical in any business, and Dan is one of the best. He kept my information confidential and made a difficult and complex process as smooth as possible. Dan was able to help me navigate the sale of my dealership and play a major part in this life changing event for my family and me. Taking care of my employees was a very big deal for me, and finding the right buyer for my dealership was paramount to the sale. Dan and Performance Brokerage Services delivered on everything they promised. I highly recommend Dan Argiro and Performance for any dealer that is looking to buy or sell a dealership in North America.

Edward Wian, Seller
Tri County International, Pennsylvania

This is my first dealership purchase utilizing a broker. I had concerns if this would make the deal too complex. But like anything else, if you do business with great people, the outcome is always great! The Performance Brokerage Services team was fantastic. Total and complete transparency. They answered their phones EVERY time I called, and worked extremely hard for seller AND buyer to make a fair and simple transaction. PBS was there every step of the way and personally saw the closing through until the last document was signed. Very impressed with the company and the team at Performance Brokerage Services. I made a deal and I made friends. Many more to follow. Call me personally for a reference.

Jason Owens, President
Patriot Auto Group, Pennsylvania

I met Paul Kechnie a few years ago when he was traveling through Minneapolis. When I came to the decision to sell my dealership, I felt Paul’s experience as a former New Car Dealer and as a dealership broker would be a benefit in finding me the right buyer for Main Motors. Paul was able to connect me with a few buyers that were qualified; ultimately, I felt the Mauer family were the perfect fit. I found Paul to be knowledgeable, professional and ethical. In my opinion, the best combination to handle your life’s work. Thank you for all you do, Paul.

Karen Carlson, Seller
Main Motor Chevrolet, Minnesota

Dear Performance Brokerage Services, thank you so much for finding me a qualified buyer so quickly. One of my major goals was to have a buyer that was going to continue what my family had built over the past 59 years. This was extremely important to me and the buyer is truly that person. From our first meeting to the sale of my dealership, everything went extremely well and all of us got along great!

The pricing structure for my dealership was right on target for me and Jason. Also, your fee was very fair. Maybe even more than fair due to the short time from start to finish. Our early meetings were good. You understood it was a big step for me and you were patient with me on my decision to go forward. I appreciated that. I also want to thank you for the recommendation of Les Chayo as attorney. The team at Performance Brokerage Services and Les were both very professional, excellent on communication, quick and very helpful. It was a real pleasure working with you.

Jack Lafferty, Seller
Lafferty Chevrolet, Pennsylvania

Before my father’s passing, he worked with George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage on prior buy-sells, so it was a no-brainer to continue that personal relationship. Knowing that I wanted to continue to grow and enter the Tennessee market, George introduced me to Tim Duff, the Dealer Principal of Earl Duff Subaru just outside of Knoxville. The dealership is a brand-new, image-compliant facility, and had been in the family for years. George was very involved throughout the entire transaction, and I thank him and his team for an excellent outcome with many more to come!

Brett Sutherlin, CEO
Sutherlin Automotive Group

I want to thank Performance Brokerage Services for all the hard work they put forth in the completion of our buy/sell with Duell’s Evansville Kia. Specifically, the efforts by Paul Kechnie and Mark Shackelford made the process smooth, transparent, and led to the successful transition between companies. As you know, there are many hurdles to overcome during a buy/sell. Manufacturer applications, asset purchase agreements, property inspections, as well as daily communication between parties are all intricate parts of a successful change of ownership. Paul and Mark provided regular updates, necessary access, and completed requests in a manner that kept the transaction private from frontline dealership employees. Handling sensitive information is vital in a buy/sell, and they did it successfully. Lou Fusz is poised for future growth, and we look forward to working together with Performance Brokerage Services on future transactions.

Randy Fusz, CEO & President
Lou Fusz Automotive Network

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!

KC Wood, President
Barney's Motorcycle and Marine

When you’ve been in the automotive business since 1965, and it’s your first time selling a dealership, you absolutely need to align with a broker that understands the family business and can give you the confidence and advice to get you and your team across the finish line. Jason Stopnitzky did exactly that. He found the right buyer that aligned with our core values, understands our marketplace, and would help continue the leadership and community involvement to take the stores to the next level. From Moshe Stopnitzky, President of the Performance family business, to Jonathan Forgy, CPA, and under the guidance of Jason, they all worked with our team to ensure a successful close on our Toyota and Subaru stores. Having been in the industry for over 48 years, and exclusively with our family business, you will not find anyone that will work harder and smarter than Performance to accommodate the needs of the buyer and seller.

Gary Fenelli, Seller
Frank Toyota & Frank Subaru

After closing on the sale of our Win Chevrolet and Win Hyundai stores, I can’t say enough about the added value that Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services brought to the table. From finding the perfect buyer, to his ability to shepherd the very complicated deal to a closing. In an age where truth, honesty, and integrity are often bent, Jason has demonstrated that character is not lost. It’s not often that people do exactly what they say. Bob Nouri is also absolutely a man of his word, and his organization was a delight to work with. With deep gratitude, I thank you both, and I pray that you have incredible success in the future.

Jerry Heuer, Seller
Win Hyundai & Win Chevrolet

George Chaconas and Juan Pardo of Performance Brokerage were great to work with. They understand our growth strategy and always provide valuable market insights.

Michael Maledon, President
Elway Powersports

As dealers, we get rated every day. Here is my rating of Moshe Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services: Over the last 30 years, every transaction they have assisted me with was smooth and headache-free. That is what I call a great level of professionalism, demonstrated by Moshe and his team. I appreciated working with Rob Armstrong, as he has also embraced the Performance culture of honesty and total transparency, and that means a lot to me, as it should to any client. Many thanks to Moshe and his team.

Al Monjazeb, Seller
Toyota of Bellingham & Mercedes-Benz of Bellingham, Washington

I just had the pleasure of closing my third transaction with Performance Brokerage Services. I could not be more pleased working with Jason Stopnitzky and his team. I would not hesitate to engage with Performance Brokerage in the future and recommend them to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a dealership. Never once did I feel lost or out of touch doing a deal across the country. Any question I had was answered almost immediately. They put your interests above their own, treat you like family, and can make a complicated transaction seem easy. They learn who you are first and then bring you what you want to buy, not what they want to sell. These guys are unbelievable and will put in the work to earn your trust. Performance is first on our list and should be first on yours too.

John Leonardi, CEO
Key Auto Group

“Over many years, I had been receiving emails and direct mail from George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. I was considering retiring and I decided to call him. He immediately visited and we hit it off. I hired George based on his extensive experience, transparency, and honesty. George was able to identify the best buyer, Dobbs Equity Partners. Many thanks to George for his tenacity and perseverance. I am incredibly happy and starting to enjoy retirement! If you are like me and considering selling out, I would certainly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.”

Jim Ross, Seller
Ross Ford Toyota, Arkansas

“George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services introduced us to Ross Ford Toyota of Wynne, Arkansas which he felt would be an excellent opportunity to add to our existing group of automotive dealerships. George was very professional, efficient, and instrumental in helping negotiate the transaction. It was a pleasure working with George and we look forward to our next acquisition with him and Performance.”

Rick Green, Executive Vice President
Dobbs Equity Partners, LLC

Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services is amazing. Early in the process he was generous enough to offer advice on what needed to be completed for the dealership to be sold. I worked on his suggestions and let him know I had the information ready after several months. He then asked me to send financials, reviewed them thoroughly, and came up with a selling price. One week later we were in escrow- it was so fast! He was generous with his time before we signed an agreement for him to represent us and then got a deal so quickly... but that's just the beginning. Once we were under contract, he was amazing. There were so many phone calls from me with questions, and he always answered, texted, or called right back. Jason was always available- morning, evening, weekends, whenever. But that's not the best part. During closing week, Jason was on site making sure all parties, 11 in total, completed all closing tasks. He's an expert. He was well-prepared and made sure the endless amount of required closing documents were presented to the right people and signed. We got it done. But that's still not the best part. Jason and I will be friends for life. He understood my unique situation of selling my baby that I created all on my own and has supported me in every way. Jason genuinely cared about helping me at all costs. I will never forget it and I am eternally grateful. Jason is a phenomenal agent and an even better person. Thank you to Jason and his team!

Michael Glasser, Seller
Marin Mazda, California

I’m excited to team up with my brother again after we split off into our own Harley-Davidson groups several years ago. We’re both avid boaters and the marine industry seemed like a great opportunity to get back into business together and build a world class marine dealer group. There is a great opportunity to consolidate the fragmented marine industry and apply some of the systems and procedures we’ve built in our motorcycle dealerships over the years. We plan to acquire another 6-8 marine dealerships and grow from there. Courtney and George brought me the BMC Boats opportunity and we were able to pay over market value to get a fully operational, well-run dealership to learn the industry.

Michael Veracka, Owner
MOD Enterprises

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.

Don McCredie, Seller
Yucca Valley CDJR, California

We have known of George Chaconas and his expertise in the brokerage of Harley-Davidson dealerships for many years. When it came time to sell, we were very impressed with George and signed up with Performance Brokerage Services. If not for his marketing efforts, tenacity, relationships and negotiating skills, this deal never would have happened! We are very happy with the services provided and would highly recommend George if you are ever considering selling your dealership.

Jack Fares & Jerry Carter
Four Rivers Harley-Davidson, Kentucky

This is our second Harley-Davidson dealership that George Chaconas has helped us purchase. In both cases, if it wasn't for George's professionalism, persistence, follow up, discipline and commitment, we are very confident that neither of these transactions would have ever closed. Through the buying process, we have come to respect George and become friends too. We highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services if you are interested in buying or selling a Harley-Davidson dealership!

Eric Sternberg
Tifton Harley-Davidson, Georgia

When my father, Dave and uncle, Mike, finally decided to sell Laugerman’s Harley-Davidson after considerable contemplation and soul searching, George Chaconas met with me and my family to discuss our dealership, its history, its potential and what kind of buyer would be best to carry on our family’s legacy. George was open, honest, and obviously very experienced and educated in his field. He was sensitive to the fact that the business had been in the family for so long and that this was a difficult and emotional decision for all of us. He brought numerous qualified buyers to the table, which proved his reach and breadth of contacts including current Harley-Davidson dealers, Powersports dealers, Automotive dealers and qualified first-time buyers. George made himself available any time of the day or night, even on weekends and while on vacation! He did everything he could to make this a smooth and seamless transaction for us, especially given the bundle of emotions tied up in it. George was introspective, perceptive, and available when we needed him most. He did everything he said he would do, and more. I would certainly recommend hiring George and Performance Brokerage Services to sell your Harley-Davidson dealership.

Heather Goodwin, Seller
Laugerman Harley-Davidson, Pennsylvania

George Chaconas contacted me last year to make me aware that he had heard rumors and speculation that I was considering selling my dealership. I had heard of George as I had received his frequent emails and mailers with Harley-Davidson dealerships for sale, recent transactions, client testimonials and buy/sell market conditions. I invited George to meet with me offsite to discuss selling my Harley-Davidson dealership. George and I built a great rapport where I felt comfortable to hire him to market and sell my dealership. George and Performance Brokerage Services created a very professional and thorough marketing prospectus showcasing my dealership beautifully, identified numerous qualified buyers in a short period of time, and successfully negotiated a win-win sale to Sheehy Auto Stores. George was highly professional, diligent and very helpful to me during the buy/sell process. George will become more than just your broker, he will become your friend. If you are considering selling I would highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.

Robert DeHaven, Seller
Patriot Harley-Davidson of Fairfax, Virginia

George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services reached out to me on a referral from a fellow 20-group member and long-time friend who recently sold their dealerships. We recently relocated our Subaru dealership to a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility and had been seeing successful growth. The dealership was a very attractive opportunity for the new buyers in a desirable and growing market. I did not have a succession plan and had no interest in buying another dealership. I had other ventures to pursue, and the timing was perfect. George brought me a very attractive offer from a highly qualified auto group, Sutherlin Automotive, that already had locations in the Southeast. Even with some of the last-minute issues at closing, it was a seamless transaction overall. George was able to help mediate myself, along with my attorneys and the buyers, in liquidating my family’s biggest asset after decades of ownership. I would like to thank George and his team for making this a reality and would highly recommend him to help navigate your family’s legacy.

Tim Duff, Seller
Earl Duff Subaru, Tennessee

We have worked with Jason and Moshe Stopnitzky and their team at Performance Brokerage Services on several opportunities recently. Their upfront and transparent way of communicating is a breath of fresh air from the usual. We have been able to get down to the important pros and cons of every offering very quickly, enabling us to identify the right fit for us, without investing substantial time or money. We appreciate the partnership and more importantly the relationship we have built with your team.

John Mathews, Operating Partner
Pat Lobb Automotive Group, Texas

There is no other dealership brokerage firm I would ever do business with!

Joe Sage, President
Sage Automotive Group

In all my business dealings for over 40 years, I have never had a more rewarding and professional experience than what Performance Brokerage Services afforded me. We formed a lifelong friendship and bond. To anyone who is considering the purchase or sale of a dealership, you are getting the most knowledgeable and professional auto brokerage team in the country.

Steve Starnes, Seller
Red River Auto Group, Texas

This is our third Harley-Davidson acquisition with the help of George Chaconas and Juan Pardo of Performance Brokerage Services. We previously acquired Frontier Harley-Davidson in Lincoln, Nebraska and Renegade Harley-Davidson in Springfield, Missouri, and they were instrumental in getting both of those deals done. As we looked at new strategic opportunities for growth, George and Juan introduced us to Platte River Harley-Davidson in Grand Island, Nebraska. They were very involved in every aspect of the buy-sell process and integral in getting it to the finish line. If you are in the market to acquire a Harley-Davidson dealership or are considering selling your dealership, I strongly recommend George and Juan at Performance Brokerage Services.

Jeff Hinchcliff, Buyer
Platte River Harley Davidson, Nebraska

I was looking to smell the roses, spend more time with my family and friends, and take more adventure trips. As I did not have a succession plan, I decided to hire the professional industry experts, George Chaconas and Juan Pardo of Performance Brokerage Services, to help me navigate this life changing decision. Although I wanted to sell my business, I also deeply cared for my staff, and wanted them in the right hands after my exit. The Performance Brokerage team was sensitive to that and brought the right buyers to the table, and I am very grateful to them for this. I have no doubt that I made the right decision to work with George and Juan of Performance Brokerage Services.

Robert Kay, Seller
Platte River Harley Davidson & Star City Motor Sports, Nebraska

I would like to thank George Chaconas and Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services for introducing me to Teddy Morse and Randy Hoffman of the Ed Morse Group to purchase our 4 dealerships. Teddy and Randy were delightful and very professional to work with. We spoke with 6 other potential buyers, but Teddy’s group was the best fit because they are also a family-owned business. The group will work perfectly with our employees and that was our main goal. 

Sheila Umphrey, Seller
Cowboy Harley-Davidson & Cowboy Powersports, Texas

After much thought and consideration, my partner Jay and I decided to hire George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services to advise us on the sale of Mt. Cheaha Harley-Davidson in East Alabama. George aggressively marketed our store and ultimately, we negotiated a deal with our neighboring dealers, Josh Russom and Andrew Campbell. George’s 20 years of experience in advising and brokering Harley-Davidson dealerships was very instrumental and helpful in the negotiations and throughout the buy sell process! He was always available and very responsive. I genuinely enjoyed working with George. When you are considering selling your Harley-Davidson dealership, I would definitely suggest you contact George Chaconas!

Mark Christopher, Seller
Mt. Cheaha Harley-Davidson, Alabama

After much soul searching and contemplation about selling my family’s Harley-Davidson dealership of over 70 years, I reached out to Buy-Sell industry expert George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. Based on current Buy-Sell market conditions, we were unable to find a qualified buyer. Thus, after lengthy negotiations, we were able to reach a retirement incentive buyout with Harley-Davidson Motor Company. I sincerely appreciate George’s hard work, dedication and constant communication throughout the process so I could move forward with retirement in Florida. If you are a long-time dealer and considering selling or doing a retirement buyout with Harley-Davidson, I would highly recommend George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services.

Bob Tramontin, Seller
Tramontin H-D, New Jersey

After almost 40 years in the business, it was time for my Partner, Dennis, and me to officially retire. George Chaconas successfully sold our first Harley-Davidson dealership, so it was a very easy decision to engage him to sell our last dealership. The Harley-Davidson motorcycle business has been very difficult the last several years. We went through several offers, but George found a great first-time buyer to acquire our dealership; a former Harley-Davidson General Manager and his business partner. I want to thank George very much for his professionalism, commitment, discipline and perseverance. The buy-sell market has changed and if you are considering retiring or just want out, now is the time to call Performance Brokerage Services!

Edwin Adler, Seller
ABC Harley-Davidson in Waterford, Michigan

We have worked with George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services for almost 15 years. He recently helped us identify and acquire War Horse Harley-Davidson. This was an ideal strategic acquisition for us to continue to grow our presence in Florida as it is practically across the street from our dealerships in Ocala. It was another great experience working with George and I would highly recommend him as an industry expert.

Mark Tkach, CEO
RideNow Powersports

When I bought my first Harley-Davidson dealership through George Chaconas several years ago, I never thought that with George’s help, I would acquire three more stores with my partner Cliff Chester. If it wasn’t for George, my lifelong dream of building a Harley-Davidson portfolio would not have come true. I am very happy and grateful to have developed a great relationship with George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services. Thank you very much and I seriously recommend George and PBS.

Rich Gargano, Buyer
Lane Splitter Harley-Davidson of San Jose, California

George Chaconas reached out to me last year on behalf of a buyer to see if I would have an interest in selling. After a series of events that was happening at the Motor Company, I explored the possibility. I was not sure if we could get enough money to retire, so George prepared a complimentary evaluation for us and the numbers worked. George was referred to me by a very close Harley-Davidson dealer friend that he successfully helped sell his dealership. So I called George, we met for lunch, and I hired him. Within 30-45 days, we had multiple offers and went on to negotiate a buy-sell and a real estate purchase agreement with a well-qualified and motivated buyer. We had a very successful and smooth closing. I want to thank George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services for their professionalism, tenacity, commitment, discipline and perseverance to get this deal done for me and my family. We are very happy and look forward to the next chapter in our lives. I would highly recommend George Chaconas and PBS if you are considering retiring sooner than later!

Ken Lipack, Seller
Harley-Davidson of Charlotte, North Carolina

George Chaconas had been courting me and my partner, Tim Cashman, for over 8 years about representing us in selling our Harley-Davidson dealerships. When the time finally came to seriously consider selling, we hired George because of his persistence, experience and professionalism. Shortly thereafter, he identified a very unique and special buyer in John Morotti that saw the huge opportunity. We negotiated a quick and fair deal and closed on the sale without any issues. We will support John Morotti going forward as he will continue our legacy. It was a definitely a miracle and we are very happy and grateful. We would highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.

Don Andress, Seller
Las Vegas H-D Dealership Group

George Chaconas came highly recommended from other Harley-Davidson dealer friends that had successful results with Performance Brokerage Services. I had been negotiating with a local Harley-Davidson dealer that wanted to buy my store for years. When I hired George, he immediately negotiated a fair offer and helped guide me throughout the process from start to finish. He kept me informed, engaged and levelheaded. It was very difficult and emotional for me to retire as this is all I have done since I was a teenager. I want to thank George very much as this would not have happened the way it did without him. I would definitely recommend and refer George and PBS to my dealer friends who are considering selling and retiring too!

Robert Wiebler
Wiebler's Quad Cities Harley-Davidson, Iowa

I met George Chaconas at my dealership and had no idea I would be acquiring a neighboring store with his help. George was very easy to work with and helped make our deal happen. Thank you, George for helping us grow. I would recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services when buying a dealership!

Oliver Shokouh, President
Glendale Harley-Davidson, California

This is the second Harley-Davidson dealership that George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services have successfully sold for our group. Performance Brokerage brought us in contact with several qualified buyers. George is always a pleasure to work with and all of us involved in the sale grew to look forward to George’s phone calls updating us on the progress of our sale and on the market in general. Thank you, George! Also, thank you to the strong staff of people working at Performance Brokerage Services.

The Jones Family, Sellers
Los Angeles Harley-Davidson of Anaheim in Fullerton, California

I have known of George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services for years. George reached out to me about an Indian store he was representing for sale in Charlotte, NC and it was the perfect strategic opportunity to expand and grow our family business. Without George’s persistence, perseverance and dedication this deal would not have happened. He was in constant contact and helped overcome the many obstacles that occur in any buy sell.  I would highly recommend him!

Tim Sutherland
Indian Motorcycle Charlotte & 1901 Customs

We opened our Harley dealership from scratch 31 years ago, so when we began considering retirement, we had no experience or reference points whatsoever in either the buying or selling of such an operation. However, as we researched the field and spoke with other dealers and former dealers who had been through the process, it quickly became clear that George Chaconas from Performance Brokerage Services was the person we wanted assisting us. George’s energy, integrity, knowledge, professionalism, experience and industry contacts are unsurpassed by anyone else in the industry, and this skillset not only resulted in a timely, efficient and mutually agreeable outcome, it actually helped make the whole process enjoyable when such an important life event could easily have been otherwise, and for that more than anything else, we remain extremely grateful. For anyone contemplating a similar transaction in the future, whether buying or selling, we highly recommend George Chaconas, and do so without reservation. There is just no one else better.

Dave Fisher, Seller
Frontier Harley-Davidson, Nebraska

Having worked with Juan Pardo & George Chaconas on our acquisition of St. Pete Powersports, we asked them to represent us in our second acquisition. I found them to be professional, honest, reliable and always on top of getting things done. If you are looking for a dealership broker to help you in the sale or purchase of a dealership, I highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services.

Tim Walter, President
iMotorsports, Illinois

We had been looking to expand to Southern California and were very pleased to begin talks for Orange County Harley. After reviewing the information and visiting the dealership, with the help of Juan Pardo and George Chaconas we were able to work through a buy/sell and come to an agreement everyone was happy about. I appreciate their constant follow-up and assistance in making this deal happen and would highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services if you are looking to buy or sell a dealership.

After 28 years of being a Harley-Davidson dealer, we decided to sell Orange County Harley-Davidson. We reached out to George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services because they had sold many of my dealer-friends' stores. George's experience and expertise are unmatched in our industry. His communication and honesty were a breath of fresh air. We also want to thank Juan Pardo for his exceptional tenacity and follow-up. George should be your only call if looking to buy or sell a dealership.

Ray Malzo
Orange County Harley-Davidson, California

This is my 3rd transaction with George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services, and I am once again pleased with the professionalism and quality of service I received. We purchased this dealership through George about 5 years ago, and when it was time to sell, there was no doubt I was going to hire THE expert in the Harley-Davidson space, George Chaconas.

Scott Fischer, President
Multi-State Harley-Davidson Group

George Chaconas from Performance Brokerage Services has been an invaluable asset in helping me acquire both of my Harley-Davidson dealerships. If you are looking to buy or sell a dealership, George should be your first phone call.

Josh Russom, President
Multi-State Harley-Davidson Group

How do I spell commitment, humanity, integrity, and reliability? Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services. Very rarely do I meet people that go to the extremes that Jason does to take care of their clients. He is a real gem! Jason is someone that I can call at any time and he always answers my call. Jason today is no longer just my broker, rather part of my family, and someone I trust wholeheartedly. Jason, thanks for who you are and what you do and the difference you’ve made in our lives. My partners Pete Shaver and Armina Mgerian and I are in debt to you.

Bob Nouri, Principal
Nouri/Shaver Automotive Group, California

Let me start off by saying that I have known Jason Stopnitzky for over 20 years and even though this was my first transaction with him, he has always been a friend and someone who has guided me to make good decisions for my organization. Jason always gives the best advice in the automotive industry without any personal interest. I am proud and honored to have acquired H & J Chevrolet through Jason and Performance Brokerage Services. Throughout this entire transaction, Jason has been incredibly professional and has operated with the highest integrity. Jason made the entire transaction seamless and always gave his unbiased opinion to both parties. I am proud to call Jason Stopnitzky my friend and hope to do many more transactions with him. I truly value his role in a very complicated industry. I recommend anyone buying or selling to give Jason an opportunity to represent them. They will not be disappointed. When Jason and Performance are involved in a deal, the OEMs know that he’s already done the hard work and the deal is solid because he has vetted the buyer and seller to make sure they’re a good match. Thank you again to Jason for his valued service. I look forward to working with Performance Brokerage Services on many more deals.

Jay Gill, President and CEO
Gill Automotive Group

Where do you start when it comes time to sell your 102-year-old family business? The first step is to properly value what it’s worth and the second step is to decide whether to hire a broker or sell it on your own. After going through the process, I can now tell you that if you want to get the most money and have someone to guide you through this very complex process, then you want Gershon Rosenzweig and Matt Wilkins of Performance Brokerage Services on your team. After spending time exchanging a lot of paperwork and numbers, their valuation was spot on. Their reach and network of buyers were instrumental in finding the right buyer for our dealerships and market. They found a buyer quickly and at a much higher valuation than I would have secured on my own. Not a day went by that they didn’t answer my phone calls or texts promptly. There are many ebbs and flows during a buy-sell, and their guidance and advice throughout the whole process was invaluable. The value they added was worth far more than the brokerage fee.

Matt DePrimo, Seller
Barber Auto Group, Pennsylvania

I’ve been involved in multiple dealership transactions with John and Jonny Mecham of Performance Brokerage Services over the last year. They are honest, efficient, and hard working. I consider them trusted friends and an invaluable resource in our industry. I look forward to many more deals with Performance Brokerage for many years to come.

Jon Weese, CEO & President
Heritage Auto Group

We have known the Mechams at Performance Brokerage Services for a very long time. Jonny and his father, John, understand how complex this business can be and bring with them a wealth of combined experience. Understanding a small market and the importance of confidentiality in a rural community like ours was vital to the process. They knew the right kind of buyer and how to bring us all together. We would absolutely recommend Jonny and John Mecham and Performance Brokerage to any seller in this industry.

Vince Tomassi, Seller
E&L Motors and Frontier Ford, Wyoming

Mark Shackelford and the team at Performance Brokerage services are remarkable at what they do. Mark kept me updated on any issues as they came up and handled several obstacles professionally and in a timely manner. Mark made the process of selling two dealerships effortless. Mark is now a dear friend of mine, and I cannot wait to see what’s ahead for us in future dealings. I am a Mark's customer for life. I would highly recommend Mark and Performance Brokerage to anyone who is considering buying or selling a dealership. You will not regret working with Mark and will also gain a true friend along the way.

Amish Patel, Seller
Duell's Evansville Hyundai, Indiana

I highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services. Mark Shackelford and Paul Kechnie provided us with professional advice while listing our dealerships for sale. They got us a great deal and also ensured the transaction reached a closing. It is clear they have the connections, knowledge, and experience to create a positive transaction.

Doug Duell, Seller

While we weren’t looking to sell any of our stores, Courtney Bernhard and George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services brought an unexpected buyer and made this transaction smooth and easy.

The Knight Group wants to thank Jason Stopnitzky and his team for their efforts in finding another store that aligned with our objectives. Jason has continued to impress us with his level of market knowledge and professionalism through the entire process. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Performance Brokerage Services.

Braeden Mueller, Vice President
Knight Automotive Group, Canada

While working with Paul Kechnie, I really appreciated the open line of communication between us through the transaction. I felt it went as seamless as possible. We have already spoken about future opportunities, and we will stay connected as I grow the organization. Thank you to Paul and the Performance Brokerage Services team.

Bill Dickason, Buyer
McKaig Chevrolet Buick, Texas

Paul Kechnie was absolutely great to work with, and I would highly recommend his services to anyone wishing to sell their dealership. He was very knowledgeable, competent, and professional throughout the process. I don’t know how he keeps up with so many deals and responds so quickly when needed, but he does! He provided great counsel when I became a bit overwhelmed at the number of buyers and offers, and helped me select a buyer that was a good cultural fit for our dealership. He knew how I felt about our employees and helped guide me to a compatible buyer with very similar values and culture. It makes it a lot easier when you know your employees will have the opportunity for continued growth in the future. I would highly recommend Paul and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone looking to sell their dealership.

Mark Abernathy, Seller
McKaig Chevrolet Buick, Texas

We knew we wanted to expand in Florida. After the successful purchase of our General Motors dealership in Perry with Courtney Bernhard and George Chaconas, we quickly entered into our second purchase agreement for Bob Pforte Motors. We look forward to working with George and Courtney on more dealership acquisitions in the near future.

Todd Jackson, Regional VP
Key Auto Group

After 57 years as a dealer, it was not an easy decision to sell. I met with George Chaconas and Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services after an unsuccessful attempt to sell with a prior broker, and felt they had the reach and commitment to see this through to the finish line. It was a pleasure working with Courtney and George and I appreciate the efforts they put forth.

Bob Pforte, Seller

“This was my first transaction with a broker and Paul Kechnie and Performance Brokerage Services made it very easy. I would highly recommend Paul and Performance Brokerage Services.”

Dave Taylor, Seller
La Porte Ford, Indiana

Looking to buy our first new car franchised dealership, we reached out to George Chaconas at Performance Brokerage Services. George and his associate, Courtney Bernhard, were very professional, knowledgeable, and helpful in acquiring Brandon Mitsubishi from the Morgan Auto Group. There were many moving parts that they helped us navigate successfully until closing. We are extremely excited and happy to be a new car dealer. Thank you very much to George and Courtney and we look forward to buying our next store with you!

Lior Argy, Buyer
Brandon Mitsubishi, Florida

I would highly recommend John Mecham and Performance Brokerage Services for any buy-sell transaction. John’s personal knowledge and understanding having once been a dealer himself made it a smooth transaction for both sides. He was professional and kept us informed the entire time. Thank you for your help in this transaction. You really did make it personal.

Brad Strong
Strong Automotive Group

We have recently had the opportunity to have purchased another store in which Jason Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage Services was the broker. After having dealt with other brokers in the past and closed several other deals, it was a real pleasure to deal with Jason again. His professionalism and manner of business is honest and transparent. He is an exceptional communicator and easy to work with. We are looking forward to do business with him again.    

Manuel Prieto, President
Prieto Automotive Inc.

Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services helped make a childhood dream come true. Jason worked with me through thick and thin to make this transaction go through. I will utilize Performance Brokerage Services hands down for every buy sell transaction that I go through. Without Performance Brokerage’s diligence and ability to navigate the waters of the buy sell seamlessly, this deal would have never happened. I am confident no other brokerage firm would have been able to accomplish this for me. A truly special brokerage firm that treats you like family and actually cares about your interest. If you ever need a recommendation please call me anytime and I will be happy to share with you my experience.

Jacob Soares, President
Victorville Chevrolet Cadillac, California

I want to thank Jason Stopnitzky and his family for their efforts to help us find the right buyer for Win Hyundai in El Monte. They promised to work hard to sell the store and they were relentless and never gave up. Thanks Performance Brokerage Services for delivering on your promise!

Hani Nassif, Seller
Win Hyundai of El Monte, California

I am very grateful for the assistance of you and Performance Brokerage in using our past profit success to establish a very fair and marketable price. Although the manufacturer approval was long and drawn out, we were pleased with the end result and appreciate the work of you and Performance Brokerage Services.

Paul Suss, President
Suss Buick GMC of Aurora, Colorado

“I contacted George Chaconas to discuss selling one of my automotive dealerships, as I was considering slowing down. I felt very comfortable with him and his experience. After our first buyer walked away, he immediately identified another highly qualified buyer. After a lot of very difficult negotiations, we entered into an agreement. George did a fantastic job keeping me and the buyer on course as it took a lot of hard work, patience and diligence. I am very happy with the outcome and pleased to have hired him. I would highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services!”

Preston Hood, President
Preston Hood Chevrolet of Fort Walton Beach, Florida

It was a pleasure dealing with David Melton from Performance Brokerage Services. It was a long process, but Dave constantly checked in to see if I needed anything and was very responsive to my questions. Definitely a class-act organization.

Lori Guitson, Seller
Sun Buick GMC in Moosic, Pennsylvania

I met Paul Kechnie and Jason Stopnitzky a few months ago while looking to acquire another store. After a few weeks, I received a call with the perfect opportunity in Spokane, Washington. I have been extremely happy with the service Performance Brokerage Services gave me and I highly recommend them!

Greg Churchill, President
Honda West of Calgary, Canada

We were first introduced to Paul Kechnie from Performance Brokerage Services regarding another listing he had in our area. Although that store wasn’t a good fit, Paul stayed in touch and found us a store that was a great fit! We found Paul to be knowledgeable, professional and very helpful throughout the process.

Charlee Markquart, President
Multi-Dealer, Wisconsin & Minnesota

I wasn’t looking to sell my store at the time, but Paul Kechnie stopped in one day and we had a great chat! Paul followed up at a later date with a great buyer looking to be in my market. I found Paul to be professional and ethical, and his knowledge of the industry was extremely helpful during the transaction. If you’re a buyer or seller, give Performance Brokerage Services a call!

Jeff Henry, Seller
Chevrolet of Plattsmouth, Nebraska

We have purchased and sold several dealerships with the help of Jason Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage Services. In every deal, he has engaged qualified candidates who are pleasant, professional and capable of performing. Jason has a passion for what he does and works harder than any broker we have done business with. I enjoy doing deals with him...we create value and he makes the process fun. He’s a solid guy and more importantly a good friend.

John Harris, President
Harris Auto Group, California

George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services constantly communicated with us as to what our needs were, they were diligent in finding our target and always pleasant through the process. I highly recommend George Chaconas and PBS for both buyers and sellers.

Roger Tovar, President
Florida Dealership Group

I had the pleasure one day of taking a call from Jason Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage Services. I had no intention of selling my store at that time, but with Jason’s help I sold my store. The selling price was fair and the process was easy. Jason followed through on every commitment and then some. Look, if you are even contemplating a sale pick up the phone and call Jason. Performance Brokerage Services did the job for me. Now I’m onto Chapter 2.

Gary Micallef
Hyundai of Everett, Washington

Juan Pardo at Performance Brokerage Services introduced me to several Harley-Davidson dealership opportunities, but Boneyard Harley-Davidson was the right fit to be my first acquisition. Juan was instrumental not only in working with Marc and Jerry, but also with Harley-Davidson Motor Company in getting the deal done. Although I had acquired businesses in the past, the unique process involved in getting approved as a Harley-Davidson dealer was something I couldn’t have done or been prepared for without the help of Juan and George. I am excited to be partnering with the current GM, Bobbie Krull, as we continue the dealership’s great success. If you are in the market to acquire a Harley-Davidson dealership, I would look no further than the team at Performance Brokerage Services to help you in your search

Steven Towers, Buyer
Boneyard Harley-Davidson, North Carolina

My partner and I had great success in Winterville, NC but felt it was the right time to focus on our Ohio dealerships. We decided to hire the industry experts and professionals, George Chaconas and Juan Pardo of Performance Brokerage Services, to help find the right buyer who would continue the great success we had. Making sure our GM and staff were matched up with the right buyer was something these guys were sensitive to, and they brought the right buyer to the table.

Marc Ingwersen, Seller
Boneyard Harley-Davidson, North Carolina

When I made the decision to sell Down Home Harley-Davidson in Burlington, North Carolina, I called George Chaconas, 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.

Fred Bosshardt, Seller
Down Home Harley-Davidson, North Carolina

This is my second Harley-Davidson dealership that I bought through George Chaconas, though this time with the help of his partner, Courtney Bernhard. I engaged them on a buy-side agreement where they identified opportunities that were not on the open market and thought would be a good fit for me and my strategic growth strategy. Shortly thereafter, they identified Bud’s Harley-Davidson in Evansville, Indiana and we quickly consummated a deal. It would not have happened without their help, professionalism, industry knowledge, and expertise. I would highly recommend George, Courtney, and their Performance team if you are considering buying or selling a dealership.

Evan Schipper
Multi-State Harley-Davidson Dealer

We would like to thank Courtney Bernhard and George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services for making the sale of our dealership a remarkably smooth transaction. Their professionalism and knowledge of the market and process were top notch. I truly enjoyed their insight and the collaboration throughout the whole process. After 63 years as a family-owned business, it was an emotional journey, and they were instrumental in finding the right buyer who shares in our family values and will continue the legacy Bud Burnett and our family have built in the community. Now we’re off to start the next chapter with more business adventures and a lot more riding!

Dawn Morand, Seller
Bud's Harley-Davidson, Indiana

We were grateful that Juan Pardo of Performance Brokerage Services brought us this opportunity. As United Motorsports continues to grow, we felt these 2 dealerships were a great fit for our brand and growth strategy in Ohio. Juan understood the buy-sell process and helped keep the deal on track throughout the transaction.

Ryan Schwartz, General Counsel
United Motorsports

Dave and I started discussing a possible sale of the dealerships as retirement was on the horizon. We met Juan Pardo at the 2019 AIMExpo where he explained the buy-sell process, and what we would need to do to prepare the dealerships for a possible sale. In early 2022, we finally decided the time was right to sell. Understanding Performance Brokerage Services was the industry expert in dealership buy-sells, we hired their team to sell both of our dealerships. We knew Juan would help find a qualified buyer who would not only take care of our staff, but also take care of the customers in our market that have been with us for so many years. We are grateful for Juan’s efforts in this process.

Jeff Zang, Seller
Cycle Specialties, Ohio

Having known George Chaconas and being in the business for years, he was the go-to guy and knew I wanted to buy in Wisconsin. In a very short period of time, George identified Open Road Harley-Davidson, and the rest is history. I would like to say thank you to George and Courtney Bernhard of Performance for helping provide a smooth transaction, and look forward to George and Courtney helping us continue to grow.

Matt Chiappetta, Buyer
Open Road Harley-Davidson, Wisconsin

We met George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage at the H-D annual dealer show. George was very experienced, and we were always impressed with his professionalism. When the time was right to sell, how we went about selling our dealership was as important to us as who would become our successors. Staying in touch with George and his Associate, Courtney Bernhard, was beneficial in so many ways, with their great knowledge of the Powersports business and being well-networked. The favorable introduction to the buyers resulted in a great fit for our market and our succession plan. Courtney was onsite at the closing and made sure the entire process was fluid and seamless. We strongly recommend this duo of high-integrity professionals if you’re thinking of buying or selling.

Lori Thiel, Seller
Open Road Harley-Davidson, Wisconsin

Having acquired a Harley-Davidson dealership from George Chaconas in the recent past, and with my father having worked with Performance Brokerage Services over many years, I reached out to George to help us purchase a local Polaris franchise only. George and Courtney Bernhard did an excellent job on helping us work through the negotiations and the closing process to purchase Van’s Motorsports with Polaris to relocate to our existing dealership. I want to thank George and Courtney very much for another successful deal to help us continue to grow, and look forward to working with them again in the near future!

Brad Holzhauer, President
Multi-States Harley-Davidson Group

If I had to rate my experience with Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services on a scale of 1 to 10, she would receive a 100! She was very professional, helpful, and treated me with honesty and respect. She worked between the buyer and me, and we came to a fair price for both sides. I will admit, when Courtney first called me about having a buyer for my business, I kind of blew her off and told her to call me next week, as I thought it was a scam. The next week, she called back and I was still extremely apprehensive. You don't just get a call from people wanting to buy your business every day! From that point on, Courtney did everything. She dealt with the title work, the manufacturer approval - she did it all! Again, this transaction was fast, painless, and professional. I can't say enough good about Courtney and Performance Brokerage Services.

Van Hammel, Seller
Van's Motorsports, Illinois

Having bought two Harley-Davidson dealerships from George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services in the past, including my recent acquisition of Victorville Harley-Davidson in California, George called me about acquiring the iconic Orange County Harley-Davidson and Coronado Beach Harley-Davidson. George had been in the middle of negotiations with several very interested and capable parties. I didn't want to miss out on these two fantastic opportunities, and we quickly negotiated a deal. The rest is history. I want to thank George and his team again for their professionalism and helping us to continue to grow and expand our footprint in California. We are very happy and look forward to taking both dealerships to the next level. If you are considering selling, call George Chaconas!

Rami Yanni, Buyer
Wise Auto Group, CA NV AZ

Thank you George Chaconas and Courtney Bernhard at Performance Brokerage Services for another successful dealership closing. This sale allows me to focus on expanding in my home state of Texas. I'm excited to pass the torch to Rami and Wise Auto Group so they can continue to take both stores to the next level.

Mark Smith, Seller
Harley-Davidson, California

I had been talking to George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services for a few years, and after a visit with George Chaconas and his associate, Courtney Bernhard, I felt like the timing was right. George is an expert in the industry and knew the right buyer for my dealership and its employees who have been like family. I sincerely appreciate George and Courtney for providing a smooth transaction and getting this to the finish line. I have referred George to several of my friends in the industry as I know he will guide them professionally on selling, whether the time is right now, or down the road.

Andy Kent, Seller
Beach Blvd Motorsports & Marine, Florida

This 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 a 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.

Rami Yanni, Buyer
Wise Auto Group, CA NV AZ

With gratitude, we would like to thank George Chaconas and Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services for putting us together with the Buyer, Wise Auto Group, within a few weeks of signing our agreement. The Wise Auto Group was amazing to work with. They were very professional, organized, and helpful with the transition. They treated us like family and recognized our almost 30 years of accomplishments. It's not easy to wind down, but this was a winning combination all the way around.

Cary Fischer, Seller
Victorville Harley-Davidson, California

Since Steve and I acquired Frontier Harley-Davidson in Lincoln, Nebraska from George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services, we had always envisioned buying another dealership. We reached out to George and hired him to help us identify dealerships for sale. After looking at several stores, we decided to target Denney’s Harley-Davidson as it was a great opportunity! George and Juan were instrumental in guiding us in the negotiations and eventual purchase. With their industry experience, expertise and professionalism, the transaction went smoothly. If you are in the market to acquire a Harley-Davidson dealership, I would highly recommend George and Performance Brokerage Services!

Jeff Hinchcliff, Buyer
Renegade Harley-Davidson, Missouri

George Chaconas and Juan Pardo of Performance Brokerage Services reached out to me several years ago about selling as they had several buyers that wanted to buy our family’s Harley-Davidson business. They stayed in touch, and as we got older, and with the pandemic and the changes at the Motor Company, we finally decided to sell and retire. The ultimate buyer they brought to us was great! We want to thank George and Juan, and highly recommend them when you are ready to sellout and retire!

Mark Denney, Seller
Denney's Harley-Davidson, Missouri

If you own a Harley-Davidson dealership, you probably know George Chaconas. I’ve known George for a long time and nobody networks better! Knowing George is always a good thing if you want to hang out, get lunch or dinner, or if you have time for a good cigar. But knowing George is a great thing when you want to sell your business! When it became clear that the succession plan in place wasn’t going to happen, I decided to sell SDHD after 27 years, and George quickly went from friend to ally. George knows this industry and our brand inside & out. He knows everyone! The sellers and the buyers, and he knows how to make the chemistry work. We ‘kissed lots of frogs’, but the minute he introduced me to Rodin Younessi, George knew the deal was as good as done! My thanks to everyone involved: George, Rodin, everyone at Harley-Davidson for 27 great years, to the great staff at SDHD, and to my amazing wife Petrina! I’m looking forward to spending lots of time on my Harley and staying friendly with George Chaconas because you never know what opportunities can turn up and George is always on a roll!

Mike Shelby, Seller
San Diego Harley-Davidson, California

Looking to expand my platform in Southern California, Harley-Davidson expert-broker and friend, George Chaconas, introduced me to San Diego Harley-Davidson. I am very excited to continue the legacy that NY Myke has built for over 27 years! George and I have worked together for over 17 years on many acquisitions and I look forward to many more as we continue to grow together. If you are in the market to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership, I would call George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services!

Rodin Younessi
Multi-State H-D Dealership Group

We would not have sold the dealership without George and Juan’s help. Their knowledge of the nuances of selling Harley-Davidson dealerships was key to completing the sale. They identified the buyers and helped us complete the sale using attorneys and appraisers they had worked with many times. Their understanding of deal dynamics helped resolve various issues throughout the process. Thank you!

Tom McCreery
Seller of Salem H-D, Oregon

Buying or selling, you need a broker who sticks with it and gets the job done. George Chaconas is that guy. Our three-year dream of purchasing a Harley-Davidson dealership would not have happened without George and his efforts.

Dwane Cannady, Buyer
Arsenal Harley-Davidson of Waterford, Michigan

I have known George Chaconas for several years as the go-to-guy to help facilitate the buying and selling of Harley-Davidson dealerships. I asked him to keep me in mind when he had an opportunity that fit my profile. George introduced me to Las Vegas Harley-Davidson and the affiliated dealerships, and within a very short time, we had a deal. Don & Tim were great sellers and we hit it off immediately. George was very instrumental in navigating the process and keeping me in the loop, as this acquisition had a lot of moving parts. I had an excellent experience with George and thank him very much for helping me grow my Harley-Davidson dealership group. I look forward to working with him and Performance Brokerage again soon!

John Morotti
Las Vegas Harley-Davidson

I had been working with George Chaconas to help me buy a Harley-Davidson dealership for years. George introduced me to Harley-Davidson of Washington DC, which perfectly fit my business model. George was very instrumental in helping negotiate the price and terms. There were a lot of moving parts and he did a great job. I am very satisfied and look forward to buying my next store with George's help. I highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services!

Brett Tekavec, President
Queen City Harley-Davidson, Ohio

I was introduced to George Chaconas years ago at the annual NAMAD conference by mutual friends in the auto & Harley-Davidson business. When it came time to sell my Harley-Davidson dealership, I called George. It was a difficult assignment and he worked very hard to make it happen. I am very pleased with the outcome. If you are considering selling your dealership, look no further than George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.

Thomas Moorehead, President
BMW Lamborghini McLaren Mini Rolls Royce of Sterling, Virginia

George Chaconas recently helped me acquire Los Angeles Harley-Davidson and suggested I buy Top Rocker Harley-Davidson in the LA market to compliment and secure a larger territory. George made a lot of sense and he made it happen very quickly. As always, George was a pleasure to work with. He definitely knows how to make the deal happen and I look forward to our continued business and personal relationship. George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services are the industry experts in buy-sells and I would definitely recommend them if buying or selling a Harley-Davidson dealership!

Rodin Younessi, President
Multi-State Dealership Group

After trying to sell my dealership through my attorney's M & A dept, I hired George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services. George and I hit it off well and it was obvious we would be able to work together. My situation was somewhat special because of my building. I built a sustainable building a couple of years before the recession. It took a while to find a qualified buyer who would also appreciate the building. George was knowledgeable and persistent in finding a buyer. He kept me apprised on a regular basis and left no stones unturned. George found a buyer and proceeded to put our deal together. During this process we have become friends. To anyone considering selling their business, I recommend giving George a call. You won't be disappointed!

Jenny Frieze, Seller
Frieze Harley-Davidson in O'Fallon, Illinois

I knew of George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services as they have helped my father buy and sell car dealerships over many years. George was very instrumental in acquiring Frieze Harley-Davidson. His professionalism, consistency and perseverance helped bridge the gap in a very difficult transaction. I want to thank George very much for helping us grow our Harley-Davidson dealerships in our area.

Brad Holzhauer, President
Multi-States Harley-Davidson Group

Over the years, I had been saving numerous marketing materials from George Chaconas. It was an easy decision to hire George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services. George provided a complimentary evaluation and prepared a very thorough marketing book. I made the right decision as George and I became friends throughout the sale. It was a very difficult and emotional transaction. George became my trusted advisor and at times my emotional support. I am very grateful and happy that I can retire knowing George and I worked well together to help me and my family move forward to the next chapter of our lives. I would highly recommend George Chaconas when the time comes for you to retire!

Tom Giannetti, Seller
St. Paul & Wild Prairie H-D, Minnesota

Having bought other Harley-Davidson dealerships in the past with George's help, we developed a very honest and trusting relationship that was instrumental in my recent purchase of Los Angeles Harley-Davidson of Anaheim. He's my go-to guy if I am buying or selling a Harley-Davidson dealership. He's a true professional and an industry expert! I would highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services!

Rodin Younessi, President
Multi-State Dealership Group

Mark Moses, our operating partner, referred me to George Chaconas about selling our Indian dealership in Charlotte, NC.  George did a phenomenal job and identified the perfect unique buyer. He was very professional and exceeded our expectations. If you are considering selling your dealership I would highly recommend George and Performance Brokerage Services!

Steve Heese, Seller
Indian Motorcycle Charlotte, NC

We recently closed a transaction for our new Harley-Davidson dealership in Lincoln, Nebraska. As a buyer, I’ve never felt overly comfortable with brokers for various reasons. However, working with George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services was far from the ordinary experience. Even though I was the buyer and not paying George’s fee, he still was involved, concerned and helpful with our side of the deal, making sure the details were to our liking as well as offering both advice and industry connections when needed. I strongly recommend George, he is a good asset when putting a deal together.

Steve Hinchcliff, President
H & H Automotive, Nebraska

After buying our first Harley-Davidson store from George Chaconas, he continued to stay in touch with us and introduced us to our second purchase. We really appreciate George’s professionalism and his follow up. We want to thank him and Performance Brokerage Services very much for helping our family’s dreams come true!

Pete Eisenhauer, Buyer
Chesapeake Harley-Davidson in Darlington, Maryland

Having known of George Chaconas as the Harley-Davidson go to guy to sell stores, I met with him on two different occasions to consider my options and selling. He provided a complimentary evaluation of my business too. I finally made the difficult decision to sell and hired George. He immediately identified the perfect buyer and eventually we came to a meeting of the minds on a deal. I am very happy and pleased with his personal service and commitment. I would highly recommend George and Performance Brokerage Services.

Electric City Harley-Davidson in Scranton is the third Harley-Davidson store our family has bought with the help and advice from George Chaconas. We really enjoy working with him as he is definitely the Harley expert. He’s very honest and trustworthy too. We highly recommend George and PBS!

Tommy Hannum
Hannum's Harley-Davidson Group

After much emotion, thought and consideration, I hired George Chaconas to sell our store. It was a very difficult and stressful transaction, but he was able to help and guide us throughout the process. Without George’s expertise and tenacity, we would not have been successful. We also want to thank his assistant, Jennifer Malcolm, as she was a lifesaver. With their help, it will allow us to move on to the next chapter in our lives. We would highly recommend George and Performance Brokerage Services when considering selling your dealership!

Anastasia Polles, Seller
Sweetwater Harley-Davidson of National City, California

This is the second Harley-Davidson dealership that we were able to acquire with the help of George Chaconas and Juan Pardo of PBS. I am very grateful that they assisted with this exciting opportunity to expand our footprint in southern California. They were very professional and helped tremendously with a sensitive, multi-generation selling family. If it was not for their patience and follow up, this deal would not have happened. Thank you very much and I look forward to working with you guys again.

Mark Smith, Buyer
Multidealer Owner, Harley-Davidson

Over the years, I have looked at many Harley-Davidson dealerships that George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services had listed for sale. I had also heard of the work George had done for my dealer-friends. It was a pleasure finally working closely with George as he demonstrated expertise and professionalism throughout the transaction.

George Tragos

After putting our dealership on the sellout list, we hired George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services.

You must call George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services if you are considering buying or selling a dealership.

I want to thank George Chaconas from Performance Brokerage Services for introducing us to the iconic and historic Dudley Perkins Harley-Davidson of San Francisco.

This deal would not have happened without the involvement of George Chaconas from Performance Brokerage Services.

He was very professional and persistent and helped immensely in us buying Waterkotte Harley-Davison. I highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services if you're considering buying or selling a Harley-Davidson dealership.

Rodney Cabaness

After receiving many announcements of Harley-Davidson dealerships that George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services had sold over the years, I reached out to him to help my daughter and son-in-law sell Waterkotte Harley-Davidson. It was a very complicated and difficult transaction and I want to thank George for his perseverance, professionalism and commitment to seeing the deal through to closing. I would highly recommend George Chaconas if you're considering selling your dealership!

Gary Surdyke

Selling your lifestyle is difficult, finding a right buyer even more so. George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services stayed on it until we achieved both goals. I hired George over the competition because he has sold more Harley-Davidson dealerships than anyone else, and I told him so several times. Many thanks.

Jeff Murray, Seller
Durango Harley-Davidson, Colorado

I have worked in the Harley-Davidson dealer network for fifteen years as a dealership employee and had always dreamed of one day owning my own dealership. George's commitment, dedication and persistence with both the seller and me is what made the deal happen. It was less than six months from signing the LOI to closing on both the dealership and real estate. George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services fulfilled our family's dream of becoming a Harley-Davidson dealer and for that, we are forever grateful.

Trevor Bird, Buyer
Durango Harley-Davidson, Colorado

Since buying my current Harley-Davidson dealership through George Chaconas, he had kept in touch with me. I reached out to George to see if he could help me purchase the contiguous Harley-Davidson dealership in order to grow my business. With his help and tenacity, including his relationships in the industry, he was able to help me acquire my second Harley-Davidson dealership. I am forever grateful and thank George Chaconas for his help. If you are considering buying or selling your Harley-Davidson dealership, I would highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.

Rich Gargano, Buyer

I used Performance Brokerage Services to sell my standalone Indian Motorcycle dealership in Fort Hood, Texas. George Chaconas and Juan Pardo were both professional and timely. They were willing to spend the time and effort finding the right buyers for the dealership. They kept me informed of the status and progress of the transaction and communicated with me on a very professional and timely manner. It was indeed a pleasure dealing with Performance Brokerage Services to accomplish our desired outcome.

Bradley Van Horn, Seller
Indian Motorcycles of Fort Hood, Texas

After hearing rumors that a multi-line PowerSports dealership could be for sale, I contacted George Chaconas to investigate it. George made contact with the potential seller and provided us the opportunity to make an offer on the dealership. George never wavered through all of the typical issues that occur during a buy/sell, keeping both parties relaxed and on task. If you are in the market to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson or PowerSports dealership, I highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.

Mark Tkach
CEO, RideNow Motorsports

George Chaconas helped us buy a Harley-Davidson dealership in North Carolina. Over the years, we stayed in contact with George and would meet with him to discuss the current buy/sell activity, market conditions and valuations. This led us to hire George to sell one of our stores. He was able to locate the perfect buyer, negotiate and facilitate the transaction very quickly. George is a pro in the Harley-Davidson market and I suggest you contact him first if you are in the market to buy or sell your Harley-Davidson dealership.

Scott Fischer, President
Multi-State Harley-Davidson Group

I have had the pleasure of working with George Chaconas in my most recent purchase of my 5th Harley-Davidson store. George is thorough and patient. He listened to our needs in securing a new business venture and worked tirelessly to take us smoothly from start to finish. He conducted himself as a partner in the deal and I feel he had a focus on the best interest of my company. I look forward to the possibility of continuing to work with him in the future.

Scott Fischer, President

It was a pleasure working with George Chaconas. His persistence, attention to detail, and professionalism all contributed to our deal consummating in a timely and controlled manner.

When you sit at an intersection in life with a dream you hope to come true, you want Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services by your side for the journey. I was at such a junction in early December of 2022 when Jason and I first connected. Jason created a confidential space, listened, and shortly after, presented me with a franchise opportunity. Jason’s level of commitment throughout every complex stage as well as his generosity of time and knowledge in critical periods were invaluable. He was tenacious, dependable, and stayed focused throughout the process. This was my first acquisition and Jason made it happen in California, where the process is challenging. Volkswagen is the brand I started my career with over 30 years ago, and now my dreams are realized. I could not have done this without the level of professionalism Jason demonstrated from the moment we met to the day of closing. The word “NO” was never an option to Jason, and we felt encouraged every step of the way. I am very grateful for all that Jason and his team have done for me and my family!

Phil Alalouf, Buyer
Coachella Valley Volkswagen, California

Our family appreciated the way Gershon Rosenzweig and Matt Wilkins of Performance Brokerage Services listened to our wishes to find us a good buyer. They persevered and found us the right family to take over the reins at our 50-year dealership. They understood all the nooks and crannies of the transaction, resulting in an easy transition.

Larry Begnal, Seller
L.T. Begnal Motor Company, New York

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. Within a short time, they found me the perfect opportunity. I am very excited about the acquisition of George Coleman Ford, and glad I trusted George and Courtney again to help complete another deal. I look forward to working together in the future!

John Smith, Jr., President
Smith Automotive Group

I recently sold my Ford dealership with the assistance of Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services. There were many requirements needed to make this transaction happen, especially since the store has been in business for 93 years under ownership of our family. Courtney was patient and engaged throughout the entire process. She brought me a buyer, John Smith Jr. from Smith Automotive Group, who was a perfect fit. My entire team is staying onboard, and I think that George Coleman Ford will be even more successful under John’s leadership. Congratulations to John and thank you to Courtney for making this deal a true success.

Gregg Coleman, Seller

Mark Shackleford and Performance Brokerage Services are among the best in the industry. Mark and I had the opportunity to sit down and map out a thorough acquisition strategy. Mark’s background as a former Ford dealership owner allowed us to move forward with complete confidence. Mark navigated through all the terms and conditions with constant communication, expertise, and complete professionalism. I would recommend anyone that is interested in pursuing a buy-sell to reach out to Mark and his team first! We look forward to future growth and partnership with Mark and Performance Brokerage Services. I would also like to congratulate Larry and Peggy Bryant of WestStar on the sale of their dealerships.

Paul Kechnie of Performance Brokerage Services was instrumental in putting this deal together for us! We met a few years back and detailed our strategy for growth and the areas we wanted to be in moving forward. Paul listened and worked hard to put the pieces in place for both parties. We are grateful to Paul and the seller, Tim Caron, for allowing our group this opportunity to continue the great legacy they have built. The DeNooyer Automotive family is over 80 years old and now in its 4th generation of ownership. We look forward to growing and supporting our employee and customer family while being good stewards of the communities we serve.

Ryan DeNooyer, Buyer
Caron Chevrolet, Michigan

Hiring Performance Brokerage Services was by far the best decision I could have made when it was time to sell. I worked with Paul Kechnie who was very assertive when it came to finding a buyer. Once Paul found a perfect buyer, he was invaluable in structuring the deal to maximize my return. As a bonus, I got to know a truly nice guy. I recommend Paul and Performance Brokerage without hesitation.

Tim Caron, Seller
Caron Chevrolet, Michigan

I have been in the automotive business for over 40 years and have spent the last 32 years with my father operating South Bay Volkswagen, our only location.  After my parents passed away a couple of years ago, I battled with selling the store. I lost all my drive to keep going. I had never sold a store and my emotions were running high. Then, I was introduced to Jason Stopnitzky. He guided me through every step of the buy/sell process. He listened to my concerns, my worries, and my expectations. Jason explained every detail and helped me understand the entire process.  He immediately found me a buyer, and the whole process went very quickly and smoothly. Jason and his Partner, Jonathan Forgy, CPA, along with legal expert Les Chayo, are all very professional and are certainly among the best in the country. I highly recommend Jason and Performance Brokerage Services.

Rudy Erm, Seller
South Bay Volkswagen, California

Many thanks to Paul Kechnie of Performance Brokerage Services for his invaluable assistance and guidance during our recent acquisition.

Jason Jalbert, Buyer
Thief River Ford, Minnesota

A huge shout out of thanks to Paul Kechnie and Performance Brokerage Services for their professionalism selling Thief River Ford in Thief River Falls, Minnesota. If I had tried doing this on my own, I would have messed it up terribly. Paul guided me throughout the whole process. He established a fair selling price, found a qualified buyer, and kept the whole transaction confidential. Paul was a great liaison between myself and the buyer, staying upbeat when things got difficult. He was always available for questions no matter how trivial. Paul demonstrated to me that brokers are not just for the big guys, they are just as critical for mid to small size dealerships. Thank you again to Paul and the Performance Brokerage Services team for helping me transition to my next chapter in life.

Steven Lillestol, Seller
Thief River Ford, Minnesota

Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services and I have known each other for years and he kept a record of what I want to do here in San Diego. He offered me advice on how I should proceed with my business plans many times. One evening, out of the blue, he called me and said he had a store I would not be able to refuse, but I had to act quickly. He definitely showed up with the right store for me, and we were in escrow in less than a week! I am very pleased with the purchase of South Bay Volkswagen in National City and want to thank Jason for making it possible. I’d also like to thank Jonathan Forgy, CPA and Partner for Performance Brokerage Services, for his professional help. I wish the Erm family happy days into retirement.

Manny Sedano, President
Sedano Automotive Group, California

One of the best things that ever happened to us was meeting Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services. Jason’s word is his bond and we’ve never felt this good about working with someone. Jason’s assistance with our acquisition of Worthington Ford was priceless.

The dynamic duo strikes again! This is the second transaction I closed with Paul Kechnie and Mark Shackelford of Performance Brokerage in a month, and the second was just as pleasant as the first.

I look forward to doing many more deals with this dynamic duo.

Shawn Kohli, Principal

My family has built a great relationship with Paul Kechnie and Performance Brokerage Services over the years.

Beth Mueller, Seller
Fred Mueller Buick GMC & Mazda, Wisconsin

After 42 years in the automotive business, I was ready to move to the next phase of my life. After seeing an ad in Automotive News for Performance Brokerage Services, I reached out to the company, and to my surprise, I was talking to Jason Stopnitzky, the Co-Founder. Talk about making a good first impression. He put me in contact with the Northeast Partner, Gershon Rosenzweig, who was the ultimate professional, and walked me through a process I was quite unfamiliar with. There was never a time that I was unable to get an answer to a question or have someone return a call. It is a very complex and complicated process when unwinding and selling a business. Thank goodness I made the right decision when I reached out to Performance Brokerage Services. They were with me right at the very end, sitting at the closing table. I would also like to say a special thank you to Les Chayo for all his help and legal advice.

Gary P. Hendrixson, Seller
Newark CDJR, Delaware

Our dealership group had been looking to grow, so we reached out to long time professional automotive dealership broker, George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. Fortunately, he sold Roger Tovar the Porsche, Audi, Volkswagen, and Volvo dealerships over 4 years ago, and confidentially asked Roger if he would consider selling. Once he raised his hand and said yes, with George’s help we negotiated a deal very quickly and closed shortly thereafter. We are very excited to add another Porsche, Volkswagen, and Volvo store, along with our first Audi franchise, to our auto group. Thank you very much George for making our deal happen with your vast experience and network of car guys. I would sincerely suggest you reach out to George and his team at Performance Brokerage Services when you are looking to grow!

We would like to thank Jason Stopnitzky and Mark Shackelford of Performance Brokerage Services for their truly exceptional service. They helped find the perfect fit for our group, and their guidance throughout the process was invaluable.

This is the third time working with Performance, and we are looking forward to working with them in the future!

Bryce Clary, Partner
Bud Clary Auto Group

I have known Mark Shackelford for over a decade, and he handled our transaction perfectly. Mark and his team were flawless in communication and have the utmost integrity. Mark has always been a straight shooter, and we are thrilled we chose Mark and Performance Brokerage Services for our sale.

He has been on every side of dealership transactions and performance, and he understands it thoroughly.

Matt Welch, Seller
Auburn Volkswagen

I want to thank Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services for his friendship, and for his help with our recent buy-sell. My brother and I really enjoyed working with Jason and the Performance team when we sold our Volvo store a few years ago, and we wouldn't have considered working with any other broker when it came to selling our Subaru store. We appreciated Jason’s professionalism, ease of doing business, and extensive resources during the sale process. Jason was able to find us the right buyer, at the right terms, and a fair price. We couldn't be happier with Jason or the transaction. Thank you to Jason for being such a great business partner and friend through the years. I would certainly recommend Jason and Performance Brokerage Services to any dealer looking to sell their store.

Rocky DiChristofano, President

Paul Kechnie of Performance Brokerage Services was instrumental in getting the deal to the finish line. He was able to provide detailed insight as to what would be expected. Through the selling process, he was attentive, responsive, and always available.  I was very happy with the transaction and services provided by Paul and Performance Brokerage Services.

Mark Hummel, Seller

This is the second acquisition that Paul Kechnie of Performance Brokerage Services assisted us with, and he helped make the process as smooth as possible both times. As challenges came up, he helped both sides work through them. Paul is honest, has a great deal of knowledge, and responds quickly. Paul knows how important our culture is to us and made sure that the opportunity fit our core values.

Jason Willis, CEO
Willis Automotive

We worked with Jonny and his father, John Mecham, of Performance Brokerage Services to sell our dealership. Being in a small town, we were worried about the ability to sell our store as well as maintaining confidentiality. Jonny and John were truly an asset to the transaction. The process was foreign to us, and Jonny was available to guide us through each step with his expertise and found a buyer that fit our small-town needs. We were very pleased with the outcome and would recommend Jonny and John Mecham again to anyone.

Kirk Jensen, Seller
Jensen-Wood CDJR, Idaho

I’ve known John and Jonny Mecham at Performance Brokerage Services for a long time, and they’ve always been a trusted resource for me.  They have a wealth of experience and truly understand the complexities of the business.  This was not our first transaction with the Mechams, and it won’t be the last. They did a terrific job of bringing both parties together.  From start to finish it was about as smooth and frictionless as I’ve seen, and I think both sides can say it was a “win-win”.  I would confidently recommend John and Jonny Mecham and Performance Brokerage Services.

Casey Wheeler
Buyer

We've been working with Paul for a few years now looking for the right opportunities in our market and he's never been shy to inquire about "off-market" dealerships. If it wasn't for Paul cold-calling on our behalf, this deal would've never happened. We identified a dealership that would be a great fit for our family and Paul did a great job in getting the conversation started between us and Frank Mancari.

Ross Berman, Vice President
Berman Auto Group

The first thing that comes to mind when working with Paul Kechnie from Performance Brokerage Services was the personal attention he provided. He came to visit my dealership before we had a contract, and then remained hands on the whole time. Paul was a great coach, and he guided me through the entire process. Thanks to Paul, everything worked out for the best.

Dan Hope
Nevada Auto Mall

Paul Kechnie and his team were great to work with and very attentive to the needs of both the seller and buyer.

It was truly a pleasure working with Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services on the sale of my last dealership in Washington State.

Tony Booth, CEO

My family and I have known George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services for many years. I met Courtney last year and mentioned I was looking to grow my Powersports portfolio. Several months later, I connected with George and we discussed a Harley-Davidson dealership that seemed to be a strategic fit within my existing dealerships. Courtney and George worked to help make this a smooth and successful transaction, and I look forward to working with them in the future as we continue to grow.

Carson Baker
Baker American Cycles

Our group had been looking to expand into the Southeast and was very familiar with Performance Brokerage Services. After several discussions, Courtney Bernhard was able to successfully negotiate a deal with Cal Thomas of Thomas Chevrolet. We are very excited to help grow the dealership and support the community. We look forward to working with Courtney Bernhard and George Chaconas on more dealership acquisitions in the near future.

Todd Jackson
Regional Vice President, Key Auto Group

Deciding to sell the dealership that my father purchased almost 50 years ago was not an easy decision. I sincerely appreciate George Chaconas and Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services working to bring in a group that will help the dealership grow and support the community. I would like to thank our loyal customers for their support over 5 decades, and all the staff who became like family to my brother Al Ray and me.

Cal Thomas, Seller
Thomas Chevrolet Buick

The team at Performance Brokerage did a phenomenal job. Jonathan did a great job of building a comprehensive packet, and Jason did a great job at finding the right buyer. They found a buyer that fit very well with our culture we had, and feel they will continue with great success. Kevin and Braeden from Knight Automotive were a pleasure to deal with and I feel they will do extremely well in the future. Thank you to the whole team at Performance Brokerage, you guys were great.

James Bruncati, Seller
Sunrise Ford

The entire Performance Brokerage Team was excellent to work with. We continued to be in touch over the years and they worked with our group to find the right fit on our first acquisition in the United States. Knight Automotive Group looks forward to working with Performance Brokerage on future acquisitions.

Braeden Mueller
Knight Automotive Group

It all started 10 months ago with a simple phone call to Performance Brokerage Services. The fact that Jason and Jesse Stopnitzky spent 50 minutes on the first phone call with a first-time purchaser told me they are the only people to do business with. Jason Stopnitzky has been a guide, a friend, a mentor, and above all an inspiration to never give up. From day one, Jason always made me feel at home and never made me realize this was my first deal. There are a lot of people in the market who will make you a deal, but only Performance Brokerage will take care of you like their own. I owe it to Jason for my first store, there is no way that I could have done it without him.

Vikas Mehandroo
Buyer

Selling a family business is hard enough, but selling a split-family business is extra difficult. Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services was a great intermediary for us and was very respectful of my interests. He listens to what you want and he finds the deal to make it happen. He exceeded my expectations.

Deborah Falk
Co-Owner, Perry Automotive Group

Our dealership was and always is our baby. To say we were a picky seller is an understatement. There were so many qualitative elements to our deal: our valued employees, our relationships with our business partners, and the very important element of winning, on both sides of the table, for both seller and buyer. Only after accomplishing all these elements and more could my partner and I feel like we were walking out the front door. Moshe, Jason and Jesse listened first, then leveraged their many years of experience and connections within the industry finding us the perfect match, willing and motivated to honor our commitments to our employees, our customers and our community. They never gave up or asked that we compromise our wishes, instead they worked tirelessly to make a request a reality. Both my partner, Laurie Bush and myself, will not hesitate to recommend Performance and their team of trusted counselors. Simply put, they are by far the best at what they do and more importantly, how they do it.

My wife and I met Jonny and John Mecham of Performance Brokerage Services for the first time over lunch during one of their visits to Denver. We instantly felt their sincere desire to achieve our family's goals and had our best interest at heart. My dad, Big Z, was looking to retire and I aspired to spend my days with my young family. At one point during our lunch, John described loving the moment when a former dealer calls to tell him when they first experience ‘being where they are’ and being present in their life outside of work for the first time after selling their store. This resonated with me instantly. From there, Jonny took the reins navigating us through the finish line with an offer even better than we had hoped, while also developing what is to be a great friendship along the way. Asbury came ready with a team of fast and efficient representatives, and I was determined to take on the challenge of keeping up with them. Jonny and John never missed a beat and there never would have been an Asbury/Arapahoe Hyundai deal without them and Performance Brokerage Services.

I first met Jonny Mecham at NADA. He was very personable and easy to talk with. We were an independent store looking to get into the franchise side of the business, and a few brokers didn't even want to help us because we were not already a franchise store. Jonny was great right from the beginning. He was willing to listen and help us find what we were looking for. We looked at a few stores and could not find the right fit at first. Jonny never gave up and stayed in contact with us for over 2 years, even during COVID, and eventually found us a store in our backyard. Jonny kept me informed on the status and progress of the transaction and got me any information I asked for. He even showed up at the closing to make sure everything went smoothly. We look forward to many more purchases with Jonny and Performance Brokerage.

In preparing to look for additional growth opportunities, we worked with George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services to find the right opportunity in the right market. After many inquiries, George identified a dealer who was interested in selling and worked with both parties to ensure a smooth transaction. Throughout the process, George was engaged and willing to do whatever was needed bring the deal to a close.

Vince Sheehy, President
Sheehy Auto Stores

I met George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services many years ago when I was looking to expand my portfolio. We developed a good relationship and he continued to stay in touch over the years, eager to assist when the time was right to exit. He reached out at the right time with a very qualified buyer. After telling George to ‘show me the money’, we had smooth negotiations. Thanks to George Chaconas, I now get to travel as much as I like!

Randy Harris, Seller
Fredericksburg, Virginia

Having acquired a Harley-Davidson dealership from George Chaconas in the recent past, and with my father having worked with Performance Brokerage Services over many years, I reached out to George to help us purchase a local Polaris franchise only. George and Courtney Bernhard did an excellent job on helping us work through the negotiations and the closing process to purchase Van’s Motorsports with Polaris to relocate to our existing dealership. I want to thank George and Courtney very much for another successful deal to help us continue to grow, and look forward to working with them again in the near future!

Brad Holzhauer, Buyer
Holzhauer Auto and Motorsports Group

If I had to rate my experience with Courtney Bernhard of Performance Brokerage Services on a scale of 1 to 10, she would receive a 100! She was very professional, helpful, and treated me with honesty and respect. She worked between the buyer and me, and we came to a fair price for both sides. I will admit, when Courtney first called me about having a buyer for my business, I kind of blew her off and told her to call me next week, as I thought it was a scam. The next week she called back, and I was still extremely apprehensive. You don't just get a call from people wanting to buy your business every day! From that point on, Courtney did everything. She dealt with the title work, the manufacturer approval - she did it all! Again, this transaction was fast, painless, and professional. I can't say enough good about Courtney and Performance Brokerage Services.

Van Hammel, Seller
Van's Motorsports

We have worked with Performance Brokerage Services several times in growing our Automotive business. I have always found John Mecham and Jason Stopnitzky to be professional, communicative and exceptional to work with to research and help us acquire additional automotive dealerships. Thanks to them the Young Automotive Group has continued to grow, thrive and expand.

Spencer Young, Sr.
Young Automotive Group, Utah & Idaho

This is the second transaction that was completed with Dan Argiro and the Performance Brokerage Team. Dan has been excellent to work with as a trusted advisor, and the team at Performance Brokerage Services is first class. Dan was instrumental in finding the right buyer for our dealerships, and he was always available when we needed him. He has sold our entire portfolio of dealerships, but if I had one more to sell, I would call Dan without thinking twice about it. I am now looking forward to enjoying retirement and spending time with my family.

Mark O'Dell
President, Nextran Truck Centers

Dan Argiro and Performance Brokerage Services did an outstanding job with helping us facilitate this transaction. As we continue our expansion, I appreciate Dan bringing this opportunity to us. It ended up being a perfect fit for our growth and acquisition strategy. The communication was excellent throughout the process. Dan is hard-working, honest, and ethical. I would recommend him and Performance Brokerage Services to buy or sell a dealership.

Jon Pritchett, President and CEO
Nextran Truck Centers

We have done two deals with Paul Kechnie from Performance Brokerage Services as we focus on our St. Louis and Oklahoma markets. Paul and Performance are our go to for future acquisitions.

Rick Jones, Buyer
Don Carlton Acura of Tulsa, Oklahoma

We hired Dan Argiro of Performance Brokerage Services to represent us in the sale of our dealership group. Dan managed the sale process and guided us with his experience and his expertise. As an expert in the industry, we highly recommend Dan Argiro and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone considering a purchase or sale of a dealership.

Mark O'Dell, President
Westfall O'Dell Dealer Group

We were looking to acquire our first new franchise automotive dealership and upon the advice of a mentor, we reached out to Performance Brokerage Services. George Chaconas and Courtney Bernhard exceeded all of our expectations. They guided us through the entire process and got us through a lot of unchartered territory. We would not be the owners of our own Chevrolet dealership today without them. I would like to thank Courtney and George for their help and we look forward to acquiring more stores with them in the future.

John Carlson, Buyer
Carlson Chevrolet, North Carolina

When it came time to sell my Chevrolet dealership, it wasn’t an easy decision. I would like to thank Courtney Bernhard from Performance Brokerage Services for putting this deal together and connecting us with a buyer within 30 days of putting the store on the market. Courtney guided both me and the buyer through the entire transaction and kept us informed every step of the way.

Fred Baker, Seller
Baker Chevrolet, North Carolina

From the first call I made to Jason Stopnitzky, I knew we had a connection. Once we put the deal on paper, he actually worked the deal, and made it all come together the way I thought it should. It’s people like Jason that make this world a better place. Thank you to Jason and his team at Performance Brokerage Services for making this a great situation on my end, and a great deal for the buyer with this Nissan franchise. I appreciate all they did to put this deal together and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to sell their franchise.

Jim Ross, President
Ross Automotive Group, California

We highly recommend Jesse Stopnitzky and the team at Performance Brokerage Services. They were amazing. Everything they said would happen, did! It was three great family business, working together with alighted goals. I couldn’t be happier. The trust that was built so quickly allowed for the deal to go very smoothly.

Mason McCurley
President, McCurley Integrity Dealerships

Buying or selling an auto dealership can be a challenging transaction. I was happy to have people with experience like Paul Kechnie and Performance Brokerage Services to work through the details with me. Paul was always available, professional, and fair. Paul and Performance Brokerage Services have my recommendation!

Scott Bement, Seller
St. Cloud Subaru, Minnesota

I would like to thank and highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services for helping with this acquisition. George Chaconas and Courtney Bernhard worked hard to identify the type of opportunity I was looking for and provided excellent communication during the process. I look forward to working together on future deals.

Tony Thomas, Buyer
Plaza CDJR, South Carolina

We are so grateful to Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services for his professionalism and hard work to find us such a great opportunity in our desired area. We appreciate how smooth and easy the transaction was. We will only use Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services when buying or selling a dealership.

David Pedder, Owner
Pedder Auto Group, California

I first met Jason’s brother, Jesse, and his father and co-founder, Moshe, back in December 2019. I was immediately impressed by their experience in this field and their transparency. Together with Jason, we were all ready to list our dealerships, but COVID put the brakes on that until February 2021. At no time was there any pressure or any false promises.

I have personally been on both sides of around a dozen buy/sell agreements. Jason ensured that this one was by far the easiest and smoothest I have experienced. He was available 24/7 and remained on top of any issues that came up, remained in constant contact with everyone involved in the transaction, and was proactive throughout. Everything that was promised was delivered and I have no hesitation in recommending Jason and his family, whether you are a buyer or seller.

Mark Abelkop, Seller
Multi-Dealer, California

This was our second opportunity to work with such a fine organization. The transition was seamless. Jesse Stopnitzky was beyond helpful and always available for assistance. He was able to answer all questions in a timely fashion. We highly recommend the work done by Jesse and his team at Performance Brokerage Services.

Lori Lum
President, Lum Auto Group

It was a pleasure doing business with Paul Kechnie of Performance Brokerage Services. He ensured everything went smoothly. If you want to sell your dealership, get a hold of Paul.

Larry Lindsay, President
Lindsay Auto Group, Missouri

I really enjoyed working with Paul Kechnie. He was instrumental in ensuring our rather long deal was finalized, even through the challenges of COVID. There were so many different aspects and moving parts that he managed to get the deal done. He was always available and I would recommend him and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone looking to buy or sell a dealership

Steve Faulkner, President
Faulkner Automotive Group

Paul Kechnie was great! It is really that simple. He helped me value my stores and made the sale happen. Let’s just say it was a tough and long deal, but Paul never wavered or complained. If you are considering selling, Paul can, and most importantly, will help you.

Jim Wilderman, Seller
Multi-Dealer, Illinois/Indiana

Paul Kechnie was a true professional in every way. He was clear in his communications and expectations with both the buyer and me. There were no surprises and he did exactly what he said he was going to do. I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a professional with ethics.

Allan Miller, President
Miller-Starnes Chevrolet Buick, Texas

Paul Kechnie was very hands on which was crucial as this was our first buy/sell. We highly recommend Paul and Performance Brokerage Services, and look forward to working with Paul on future acquisitions.

Michael Handwerger, President
Alpha One Motors, Texas

This was our first deal with Paul Kechnie and Performance Brokerage Services and it could not have gone better. Paul made the process seamless and we were very grateful for his support. Paul set the stage for the seller and I to meet in person before we engaged in the buy/sell to ensure our goals mutually aligned. He did a great job communicating with us throughout the entire process to ensure we were always on the same page. As we continue to grow, I hope every transaction goes as smooth as it did using Paul Kechnie and Performance Brokerage Services.

Greg Hubler, President
Greg Hubler Auto Group, Indiana

Paul quickly found us a great buyer just as the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns started. Paul championed our mission throughout the early days and kept our buyer engaged. He was very helpful during the negotiations and carefully kept both parties informed and on track. Furthermore, Paul's broker experience was very valuable when dealing with the manufacturer’s buyer approval as he coached us through that arduous process.

Jeff Harris, Seller
Matthews Buick GMC, Indiana

The car business is all about relationships and I have developed a great one with George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. I genuinely enjoy working with him. I hired George to identify buying opportunities and he introduced me to Acura and Volvo of Athens in Georgia. It was a perfect fit as I graduated from the University of Georgia. If you are in the market to buy or sell a car dealership, call George Chaconas!

John Smith, Jr., Buyer
Acura Volvo of Athens, Georgia

This was my second transaction with Paul Kechnie and Performance Brokerage Services. Again, I am very happy with the result, especially during some difficult times this year. Paul was able to save the deal at the 11th hour and I appreciate his timeliness and dedication to the transaction. I would highly recommend Paul and Performance Brokerage Services.

Bob Cerame, Seller
Paul Cerame Ford, Missouri

This was my third transaction with Paul Kechnie and Performance Brokerage Services. As always, a great experience. Paul was always available, even on the weekends. He handled everything in a timely manner with professionalism. I continue to talk with him even when we are not engaged in a buy-sell. I highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services and would definitely use them again in the future.

Mike Terry, Buyer
Bossier CDJR, Texas

Jason Stopnitzky and Paul Kechnie were a pleasure to work with. Why use 1,000 words when 10 will deliver the same... this team is low on drama and high on results.

Bob Crow, Seller
Bossier CDJR, Texas

If it weren’t for George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services, this deal might not have happened. I called him for advice on a different matter and he talked about an opportunity I should not pass up. He was exactly right, and I am grateful to him and his team. He was always a phone call away and followed up with me regularly. Thank you, George, for giving me this opportunity!

Walt Massey
Walt Massey Auto Group

After careful consideration about selling my car stores to slow down and semi-retire, I contacted George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. Shortly thereafter and before the pandemic, George came to visit and I hired him. We then met again at his company’s tradeshow booth at NADA in Las Vegas. This past summer, he identified a well-qualified and motivated buyer. We had a relatively easy closing with the normal stresses. I would like to thank George for his expertise and professionalism. I would sincerely recommend him when considering selling your car dealership.

Mack Grubbs, Seller
Mack Grubbs Motors, Mississippi

“I used Performance Brokerage Services to acquire my first new car dealership in November 2020. My experience with Juan Pardo, Courtney Bernhard and George Chaconas were both professional and highly ethical. They were integral with the timely flow of information and the progress of the transaction. They enabled the process to go smoothly, which resulted in a successful closing. I would highly recommend this team and Performance Brokerage Services.”

David Cohen, Buyer
Gator Chevrolet in Jasper, Florida

“We reached out to Performance Brokerage Services when we decided to sell our dealership. Juan Pardo was able to identify a very qualified buyer that was the perfect fit and negotiated a fair deal for both sides. We are incredibly happy with the results and would recommend Juan Pardo and Performance Brokerage Services if you are looking to sell your dealership.”

Leland D. Johansen, Seller
Gator Chevrolet in Jasper, Florida

Last year, I bought a dealership in Mexia, Texas through Paul Kechnie. Paul called me a few months ago stating he had another great opportunity for me. Like the first time we did business, I found Paul to be professional and efficient. Anything I needed, he was quick to retrieve for me. I highly recommend Paul Kechnie and Performance Brokerage Services.

Mike Terry, Buyer
Alice Chevrolet Buick GMC, Texas

We enjoyed working with Paul Kechnie in the sale of our dealership. Paul is understanding, professional, honest and worth every penny.

Tony Grunder, Seller
John K. Fisher Cadillac Buick GMC, Kansas

After our initial meeting, Paul and Jason were able to find us an opportunity within 2 days! It was a perfect fit for our organization, and our growth plan. We created instant rapport with the seller, and more importantly created a relationship that will last a lifetime! Everything went smooth from the beginning, and even through COVID19, we were able to close quicker than expected! Looking forward to our next opportunity with Performance Brokerage!

Martin Dinh, COO/Vice-President
Ford of Boerne, Texas

Jason Stopnitzky and his family at Performance Brokerage Services have served us extremely well for many years. Jason connects very well with car dealers and is available 24/7 to bring deals to the finish line. I appreciate all he has done for my family.

John Harris
President, Harris Auto Group

My wife and I spent the last 30 years building our dealership from the ground up. When we made the decision to begin a new chapter in our lives, we knew that going through a buy-sell would be uncharted waters for us. We were very fortunate to find John Mecham, his son, Jonny, and the team at Performance Brokerage Services. Jonny did a great job of finding us the perfect buyer that we could feel good about leaving our team with. John kept our deal on path, and the entire experience including the closing went smoothly without a single hitch. Thanks John, Jonny and Performance Brokerage. You were on point from beginning to end.

Todd Hunzeker
Seller, Hunzeker Ford, Idaho

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services as a dealership buyer and as a dealership seller. Jason surpassed our expectations every time. Jason is hardworking, professional, straight forward and totally trustworthy. Thanks for getting our deals done!”

Sean Crowley, President
Crowley Car Company, California

Jesse Stopnitzky with Performance Brokerage Services was not only an absolute gem to work with, but also an integral part of our buy/sell at El Cajon Mitsubishi. Since the beginning of this lengthy process, his ability to find the right buyer at the get-go with his international network and also his calm and capable mannerism kept all parties on course despite all of the challenges that are pretty normal for a transaction of this magnitude. It wasn’t just this that set Performance Brokerage apart from the rest, but also their reasonable and fair agency fee structure, which was the brownie on top. It was a pleasure to have Performance Brokerage represent my company as a seller's broker and I would recommend them without any reservation.

Frank Farsoudi
El Cajon Mitsubishi

It is with great pleasure that I recommend David Melton and Performance Brokerage Services to you. Recently, we decided that we needed to sell one of our dealerships that was a little too far away for us to operate in the manner we expect. We spoke to a half dozen brokers. After talking to David on multiple occasions, we decided that he would be our best bet to sell the store in a timely fashion due to his personality and wide range of contacts and reach. We chose properly as David had our Jeep Chrysler Dodge Ram dealership in front of a qualified buyer within days, and within two and a half months time…sold and in the capable hands of the new dealer!

David Melton was there for us as well as the buyer throughout the process. He is very patient, knowledgeable, fair and pleasant to work and speak with.

Brian Heney, COO
Kelly Automotive Group, Massachusetts

Performance Brokerage Services could not have handled the transaction any better. They were always available through every step of the process. I will be buying more stores with Performance Brokerage Service's help and expertise.

Dan O'Brien, President
Dan O'Brien Auto Group, Massachusetts and New Hampshire

I got to know George Chaconas of PBS from other car guys and since then, we have developed a great relationship. When George told me about the Kia store in my backyard that he had been engaged to sell, I moved quickly to acquire it. It was a perfect strategic acquisition and it also allowed me to diversify my portfolio. George was very helpful and excellent to work with. He continually kept my team updated throughout the process towards a very smooth closing. I would highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services!

Myers Automotive Group
Florida

I want to thank David Melton for his efforts in assisting my sister and me with the sale of our family dealership. Even though the process was long, David was available 24/7 from start to finish. I would highly recommend David Melton and Performance Brokerage Services for buyers and sellers.  

Jerry Taylor, Seller
Jerry Taylor Ford, Pennsylvania

Mr. David Melton was fantastic through the entire process of our dealership purchase in Grove City, PA.  We had quite a few hurdles during the due-diligence period.  With all the laws and regulations that the manufacture, state, county and township put in our way to conduct and purchase a business, Mr. Melton was an invaluable resource with his experience and knowledge.  Having run dealerships himself, Mr. Melton is the perfect broker to provide a realistic in-depth view of any store.  He can break down a statement at a level that not many can.  I would highly recommend Mr. Melton to anyone who is considering selling or buying a store.  Being in our position, running and owning a dealership, it is difficult to find people to talk to about market conditions, real estate, expectations, etc.  Mr. Melton was that person for me.  I now call Mr. Melton a friend and look forward to working with him in the future!

Matt Wickwire
President, Grove City Ford

For years, I have known of George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services as the highest volume automotive dealership brokerage firm in the country. George introduced me to a great opportunity in Leckner Nissan of Ellicott City, Maryland that he was hired to sell by a receivership. It was an unusual buy-sell through the court, though George was very professional and diligent in helping us acquire the dealership. I look forward to working with him in the future and I would highly recommend George & PBS when considering buying or selling!

Ali Ahmed, Partner
Multi-State Auto Group

I met Paul Kechnie a few years ago when he was traveling through the area and he stopped by my store. He recently found a great buyer for my dealership and it closed seamlessly. I’m very happy with the results and I would highly recommend Paul and Performance Brokerage Services.

Bob Hurley, Seller
Ford of Tulsa, Oklahoma

Performance Brokerage Services did an excellent job! They brought plenty of buyers, followed the sale right until the very end and even attended the closing. I am very happy with the whole transaction.

Joe Shauger, President
Ford of Nazareth, Pennsylvania

George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services contacted me about several Nissan stores he was hired to sell in receivership. These stores were selling through a limited auction process that needed court approval. The buying and negotiating process was much more difficult than dealing with a selling dealer. George did a great job communicating with me on a regular basis and helping navigate a very difficult purchase. I am very satisfied and happy with his industry expertise and professionalism. I would highly recommend George and PBS if you are considering buying or selling!

Patrick Dibre, President
PSD Automotive Group, Multi-State

It was a pleasure to work with George Chaconas in acquiring Hood Chevrolet. He was very diligent, honest and professional. If it wasn’t for his help and tenacity, this deal would not have happened. I would definitely recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services. Thank you very much.

Raymond Brandt, President
Ray Brandt Automotive Group

I recently hired the services of Performance Brokerage and Paul Kechnie. Paul was professional, ethical and thorough during the process of selling our dealership. I was extremely pleased with the results. He helped us achieve the price and terms we desired. I would definitely recommend Paul!

Everett Moddie, Seller
Ottawa CDJR, Kansas

I have had the pleasure of knowing Paul Kechnie for a number of years, dating back to his days as a 20 group Moderator. In the past, I have also had the opportunity to work with Performance Brokerage Services and their partners. I recently received a call from Chrysler/ FCA to step into a transaction that was already underway. FCA was exercising their right of first refusal and wanted me to purchase the dealership. Paul was the broker handling the transaction. Paul was very helpful in managing the delicate process of moving both myself and the seller to a timely close without any issues. As in the past, Paul and Performance Brokerage Services proved themselves to be an asset in a dealership transaction.

Troy Duhon, Founder
Premier Auto Group, Multi-States

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.

Thad Watters, Seller
Watters Autoland, Iowa

I met Paul Kechnie from Performance Brokerage Services a year ago when he was traveling through Michigan. I had noted to him that I was looking for opportunities. Months later, I received a call from Paul regarding a store that recently became available. I ultimately purchased the store. Paul was very helpful with the deal. His breadth of knowledge in the transactional process was a great asset. I definitely recommend him!

Rich LaLonde, President
Summit Place Auto Group, Michigan

I have been friends with Jason Stopnitzky for almost 20 years. Jason and his team at Performance Brokerage Services have been absolutely amazing through this entire buy-sell. Without Jason’s persistence, hard work and dedication, this deal would not have gone down as smoothly as it did. I would firmly recommend Jason and his team at Performance to anyone considering buying or selling. Thanks again for everything and I truly appreciate your friendship and business relationship.

Tim Moran, Partner
Gosch Auto Group, California

I really appreciate Paul Kechnie and Performance Brokerage Services. We called several brokers and asked them to look for some stores for us, and most of them didn’t call us back. So we really appreciate the fact that Paul called us back, stayed with it, and found us a great store. We have now closed on it and we are very happy.

Kent Brown, Partner
Brown Automotive Group, Texas

A HUGE thanks to Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services for their help and commitment to ensure a smooth transaction in my recent acquisition of a Dodge Ram Fiat store in Las Cruces, NM. The entire process was smooth and Jason made sure to keep everyone involved in the transaction up to date. It’s an easy decision who I will use in the future for my next deal. Thanks!

Derek Kulach, President
Viva Dodge Ram Fiat, New Mexico

I would like to thank Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services, Inc. for helping me sell my dealership. I needed to sell the dealership quickly and painlessly. I would highly recommend Performance Brokerage if you are looking to sell your dealership. They will get the job done and they will be with you every step of the way.

Marty Dority, Seller
Sequoia Chevrolet Buick GMC, California

We had the opportunity to purchase our last dealership with Jason Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage Services, Inc. as the broker. After having gone through and closed several deals, it was a real pleasure to deal with such professionalism. Jason’s manner of business is transparent and honorable. We are looking forward to doing business with him and Performance Brokerage again.

Manuel Prieto, President
Prieto Automotive, Inc.

It was a pleasure working with George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services on the sale of McCrary Audi, Porsche, Volkswagen and Volvo. I met with George a few years ago and told him my magic number that I would sell for. George identified the perfect buyer and we negotiated a deal I felt very comfortable about. I was most satisfied with their professional and experienced help and would recommend them.

Dean McCrary, Seller
Dean McCrary Imports, Alabama

I wasn’t looking to sell my store, but Paul Kechnie from Performance Brokerage Services happened to have a really great buyer looking in my area. Paul was very attentive throughout the transaction and I highly recommend him!

Corey Hobscheidt, Seller
Pro Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Nebraska

I originally met Paul Kechnie from Performance Brokerage Services through a dealership he had listed in the Omaha market. This recent transaction is the third dealership I have purchased with Paul involved. As always, Paul was a great asset in making this transaction a smooth one.

Gregg Young, President
Gregg Young Auto Group

We had mentioned in passing to Paul Kechnie of Performance Brokerage Services that we may want to divest of our store in Minnesota. In a very short period of time, Paul contacted us asking if he could discuss the opportunity with a specific buyer. As it turned out, the Markquart family were a good fit and good people that we felt we could sell our store to.  Paul's knowledge and professionalism made the process as efficient as possible.

Justin Lake
Vern Eide Motorcars, Iowa and South Dakota

I have known Performance Brokerage Services for over 20 years. When we were looking to acquire another dealership, I engaged their services to find the perfect store. As expected, they found us that store in a short period of time. They were professional, ethical and extremely helpful throughout the process. Whether you’re buying or selling, I highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services.

Craig Lanoue
Multi-Dealer, Ontario

We recently closed a transaction for our new Harley-Davidson dealership in Lincoln, Nebraska. As a buyer, I’ve never felt overly comfortable with brokers for various reasons. However, working with George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services was far from the ordinary experience. Even though I was the buyer and not paying George’s fee, he still was involved, concerned and helpful with our side of the deal, making sure the details were to our liking as well as offering both advice and industry connections when needed. I strongly recommend George, he is a good asset when putting a deal together.

Steve Hinchcliff, President
H & H Automotive, Nebraska

Their business background and professional manner told me they could be helpful in our search for another dealership. They worked really hard to find us potential stores and his persistence resulted in successfully finding us our “crown jewel”. I definitely would recommend Performance Brokerage Services, and would use them again in the future!

Tom Mayhew, President
Tilbury Chrysler, Ontario

Although I wasn’t looking to sell my store, Performance had a wonderful buyer that was looking to expand in my immediate area. In a short period of time, we struck a deal and committed to the process of selling my store. Throughout the process, I found Performance and their buyer to be professional and acted with integrity.

Dan Kane, Seller
Dan Kane Chevrolet Cadillac Buick GMC, Ontario

I met Paul Kechnie while looking for stores to expand my group. Paul had two stores listed for sale that were a great fit. Paul’s knowledge and ability to manage the buy/sell process was a great benefit for both principals of the transaction. I would definitely recommend Paul and Performance Brokerage Services!

Randy Curnow, President
Curnow GM Dealerships, Kansas/Missouri

It was a pleasure working with Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services on the Tucson Volvo deal. This was our first out of state acquisition and it went extremely well and smooth. You handled it very professionally and I must say, the time you took in preparing the sellers was exceptional and an experience we have not had in the past. I appreciate that you were always very prompt in responding to me and providing all the documentation we requested and answered all of our questions. I look forward to working with you again in the near future.

Rami Yanni, President
California Dealership Group

The Jay Hatfield Auto Group would like to compliment Paul Kechnie from Performance Brokerage Services for assistance in the purchase of Ranz Motors in Chanute, Kansas. The process was very transparent and made easy for both the seller and buyer.

Jay Hatfield, President
Hatfield Auto Group, Kansas

I want to thank Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services for helping my brother and I with the sale of our families’ dealership. He was referred to us through a fellow dealer and we could not have asked for a better representative for our family. From the moment we started talking to Jason about representing our store, he made us feel comfortable and handled all the details with incredible confidence. There wasn’t one time when we called him to help us through any situation with the sale that he was not available. His dedication to the business and our family is not often found today. Should we ever find ourselves in this situation again needing to sell a dealership, rest assured Jason is our man.

Mike DiChristofano
Multidealer Tucson, Arizona

Jason Stopnitzky and the team at Performance Brokerage Services did a fabulous job helping us grow our business. Everything from searching for potential acquisitions to finalizing the deal, they were with us every step of the way making what could be a daunting process into something that was straightforward and extremely positive. Thanks Jason and Performance Brokerage.

Tod Johnson
Lee Johnson Chevrolet, Washington

I want to thank Jason Stopnitzky and the team at Performance Brokerage Services for the excellent work they did on our acquisition of Mercedes-Benz of Spokane. I’ve always appreciated the professionalism and hard work Jason has provided to us. We have done several deals with PBS and I’m confident we will do many more! I would recommend them to any dealer on either the buy or sell side of a transaction

Ryan Gee, CEO
Gee Automotive Companies, Wards Auto Top-50 Dealer

When I heard that the seller chose to go with a broker instead of going to lunch and working out a deal, I was upset. Now that I have gone through a transaction using John Mecham's team and Performance Brokerage Services, it was the best move ever. I have never dealt with a broker that was more professional, and understood both sides of the transaction. After this experience, there is no way I would ever do another transaction like this without a broker, and I most certainly would only use Performance! It truly was an awesome experience!

John Mecham and the team at Performance Brokerage Services go above and beyond the expected role of a dealership broker. They work hard to ensure that their transactions go as smoothly as possible. John does an excellent job of providing insight into each deal. My group has successfully completed six transactions with their assistance, on both the buying and selling sides, and have found them to be honest and with complete integrity in all situations, and their market knowledge is invaluable. I consider John and the team at Performance Brokerage to be reliable and result driven, I also consider them to be good friends.

He returned calls and emails in a prompt manner. I would definitely recommend Paul and Performance Brokerage Services.

Chuck Piano, President

Selling a business when it is not for sale openly, is very difficult to say the least. Jason worked with me over a two-year span to find the right buyer for our store. He worked with interested parties he knew confidentially until the right buyer was identified. This confidentiality element was paramount to us because we could not afford to have the “rumor mill “destroy the store in the interim. I would recommend Jason and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone. They are up front, honest and easy to work with. Sincerely,

Robb Walther, CFO
Lanphere Enterprises, Inc.

True professionals in every way. Thanks to George Chaconas, Jason Stopnitzky and their team for providing our team with an excellent opportunity in Seattle Washington. We not only had a good business transaction, but made a new friend working with Performance Brokerage Services.

Jeffrey Cheek, Buyer

I have been working with the Sheffer family for many years. The family has been involved in beer wholesaling, construction equipment rentals, and truck repair throughout the years. The family wanted to explore some possible new businesses to operate. When I learned of the Laugerman’s Harley-Davidson dealership from our mutual accountant, I felt it would be a tremendous match for the Sheffer family. Clint Sheffer understands how to service a brand and has an interest in motor vehicles, while Sue Renoll, Clint’s sister, enjoys working with people and has a passion for retail. I connected with George Chaconas and he fully educated us on the dealership and the Harley-Davidson brand. Over a short period of time, we developed an excellent working relationship. He guided us through the Letter of Intent process and provided us with information anytime we had a question or concern. George was a calm negotiator when the time came and assisted in bringing the deal together on both sides of the table. I would recommend George and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone looking to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership.

Todd Gettys
Advisor to the Sheffer family

Knowing that George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services is an expert in the buy/sell transactions of Harley-Davidson dealerships, my father and I reached out to him to locate a new store to buy. After a few months, George was engaged to sell a Harley-Davidson store that we wanted to buy. It was a perfect fit to expand our footprint in our market area and not far from our current dealership. George brought the opportunity to us immediately and was able to effectively help us negotiate a win-win purchase that led to a very swift closing. I would highly recommend this hard working broker.

Josh Russom, President
Momentum Holdings, LLC

We contacted George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services about helping us evaluate and sell our dealership in Fort Wayne, IN. After working with many different types of people over the years, we quickly recognized his professionalism, ethics, and business acumen and decided to engage him to sell our dealership. George guided us through all the moving parts of a buy/sell. You could safely say this deal was much more complicated than Dennis or I thought. George earned his commission and kept the deal moving by being the buffer between the buyer’s lawyer and our lawyer. He also knew how to deal with the reps at Harley. Now that I’ve been through it, I wouldn’t ever think of doing it myself. George was a gentleman and a great guy, we really enjoyed working with him. Thank you very much George!

Edwin Adler, Seller
Lucky Harley-Davidson, Indiana

Knowing that George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services is in the trenches of the Harley-Davidson space daily, I reached out to him to see if he could help us buy a second store. Luckily, George introduced me to a store that I had been wanting to own. Through some difficult negotiations George’s professionalism kept everyone centered and the deal moving forward to a successful closing. George understands the details and complexities involved in putting together a successful deal, and I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Evan Schipper, Buyer
Lucky Harley-Davidson, Indiana

We had the good fortune of meeting George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services in Las Vegas, last Fall. After discussing future succession plans for our 40-year family owned Harley-Davidson dealership, George provided several reasons why accelerating those plans may be beneficial. He traveled to Milwaukee to see firsthand our dealership in operation and discuss market conditions. Shortly thereafter, George introduced us to a highly motivated buyer who had previously purchased a dealership through George and was looking to expand in Wisconsin. If you are looking for an experienced broker, intimately familiar with our business who can help navigate the sale or purchase of a dealership, I would definitely recommend speaking with George Chaconas.

Kirk Topel, Seller
Hal’s Harley-Davidson, Wisconsin

Within seven months, George had identified a buyer and had our dealership sold.

My wife and I have been Harley-Davidson enthusiasts and riders for over 20 years. I am currently a Nissan dealer in Pennsylvania and George Chaconas introduced me to a Harley-Davidson dealership for sale near my family’s second home. It was a perfect opportunity to realize my lifelong dream of becoming a Harley-Davidson dealer. As a first time Harley-Davidson dealer, George was very educational and knowledgeable, and proved himself to be an industry expert. He assisted in facilitating the transaction from Letter of Intent to closing. I would highly recommend George and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone looking to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership.

Contemplating selling my Cox’s Northern Tier Harley-Davidson in Mansfield, PA, I reached out to George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services to discuss the process. George offered to perform a complimentary valuation of my dealership and through that process I learned that George is trustworthy, reliable and professional; we developed an excellent working relationship. Rather quickly, George identified the perfect and unique buyer for my dealership. George was very attentive throughout the process and made himself available at all times. He worked diligently to bring the transaction to a quick and successful closing.

George, I can’t thank you and Performance Brokerage enough. You guys are certainly the leaders in the Industry for buying and selling Harley-Davidson dealerships. Even though you had no financial interest in our deal, you always had time for me with your advisement on our latest purchase of Dean’s Harley-Davidson. Thank you and if I can ever do anything for you at one of our 3 dealerships please don’t hesitate.

Tommy Hannum

Thank you George Chaconas, for helping to facilitate my purchase of NewRoc Harley Davidson in New Rochelle, NY. Your excellent response time and attention to the progress of the sale was very much appreciated. You have a great work ethic! Hopefully, in the future we can put another one together.

Cooper Friend, Buyer

I’ve known George Chaconas for a few years and he would always stay in touch with what opportunities were available. When we narrowed down our search to Florida, George’s partner Juan Pardo called about 6 months later with the perfect fit. Juan was a big help in getting us to the finish line and we’re looking forward to the next one.

Tim Walter, President

Contemplating retirement, I hired Performance Brokerage Services to sell my powersports dealership. They brought me the perfect buyer and we moved through the process in a timely manner.

Throughout the sale of our dealership, George was responsive, professional and successful in bringing us the best buyer for our store. Thank you for your help, George and Performance Brokerage Services!

Jason Dyer, Seller
Stone Mountain Harley-Davidson, Georgia

When you make the decision to sell your dealership, you want a broker that is as focused on his job as you are on your business. You want a broker who will deliver the same quality that you have delivered to your customers. You want a broker that will work harder than you or any of your staff. That person is George Chaconas. The key to running a successful business is to listen to what your customer wants. George did exactly that. Filtered out the tire kickers, brought real candidates and always had my best interest at heart. George’s communication skills are above reproach. Selling is an intense time and you not only want to know that your broker is doing his job, but what is he doing and how is he doing it. Truthfully, I have no idea how one person can have as much energy, communicate as effectively, steadily and with clarity as George does. He didn’t call to shoot the breeze, he called with updates and a plan. George made the whole process seamless, understood my goals – not a fire sale – and delivered in record time. I could not be happier. Thanks George and Performance Brokerage Services!

Dan and Shirley Stern, Sellers
House of Thunder Harley-Davidson, California

After bringing the potential buyer and seller together, George Chaconas did an excellent job assisting in the negotiation of the terms agreed to for the sale. He kept all parties informed of the status of the transaction and did an excellent job facilitating the closing of the sale of the business and the subsequent sale of the real estate.

James H. Albright, Seller

Having worked with George Chaconas in the past, I knew what to expect when he brought this opportunity to me: honesty, integrity and professionalism. If you are looking to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership, I would highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.

Greg Cooke, President
Revolution Motorsports Dealership Group, Multi-States

Thank you, thank you, thank you George Chaconas for your persistence, diligence and encouragement, which ultimately led to the successful purchase of House of Thunder Harley-Davidson. When George first introduced me to the opportunity, my first reaction was no. But George was consistent with his follow ups and encouragement to revisit the opportunity, to take the time to go to the dealership, to get a feel for the culture, the area, and the potential opportunity. Ultimately, my partner, Rich Gargano and I really liked what we saw and recognized the opportunity that George had brought to us and what a truly perfect fit House of Thunder was

Bret Irvine, Buyer
House of Thunder Harley-Davidson, California

A huge thank you to George Chaconas for guiding us through our first Harley-Davidson dealership purchase. George was always available and took the time necessary for us to get comfortable with our purchase. George’s experience, contacts and overall helpfulness was reassuring when it came time to finalize the purchase.

Rich Gargano, Buyer
House of Thunder Harley-Davidson, California

George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services reached out to me about an opportunity he had recently engaged for sale to consider as a strategic acquisition. Ironically, I tried to buy the dealership several years ago to no avail. I was very excited to have the opportunity to purchase it again. George was very proficient, diligent and responsive throughout the process. George furnished us all the requested information in timely manner and helped us to a fast track closing in less than 90 days from start to finish. We are very excited and happy with the new dealership and look forward to working with George and Performance Brokerage Services in the future. I would highly recommend George to any Harley-Davidson or car dealers looking to buy or sell a dealership.

Virgil Schulenburg, President
Harley-Davidson Dealerships, Wisconsin/Iowa

George Chaconas contacted me about a few Harley-Davidson dealerships he had engaged for sale. George and I met at a recent Harley-Davidson conference, and George took me to lunch. I felt very comfortable speaking with him and was impressed with his knowledge and expertise in the Harley-Davidson space. Soon after we met, I decided to engage George to sell my dealership. George put together a thorough valuation and within weeks, had identified the perfect strategic and unique buyer for my dealership. Throughout the process, George was extremely helpful with his experience in pricing the dealership and entering into negotiations with the buyer which shortly thereafter led to a Letter of Intent, an Asset Purchase Agreement and a very fast closing. From start to finish, George helped make selling my dealership a seamless process, negotiated expertly on my behalf and I am very pleased with the personal service and diligence. I would highly recommend George Chaconas if you are thinking about buying or selling a Harley-Davidson dealership.

Josh Doughty, Seller
Badger Harley-Davidson in Madison, Wisconsin

George Chaconas contacted us and inquired if we were interested in selling Harley-Davidson San Jose as he had a qualified buyer. We told George we were not looking to sell, but we did name a price that would cause us to consider the idea. George went to work and actually brought us several qualified buyers, one that met our asking price and closed on the transaction. Simply put, George delivered and without George we would not have sold Harley-Davidson San Jose.

Wayne Harter & Dave Dunlap, Sellers
Harley-Davidson San Jose, California

Searching for a dealership to acquire, we reached out to George Chaconas because we knew he was familiar with the Harley-Davidson industry. He immediately shared with us a very interesting and important acquisition opportunity in California. George acted as a buyer’s agent and represented us in this transaction.

After 45 years as a Harley-Davidson dealer, it was finally time to retire. George Chaconas from Performance Brokerage Services met with us at our dealership and we worked well together. George didn’t have the easiest job, and although we got into arguments, he understood me and tolerated me well. This was a long and complicated process, but George worked hard and was incredibly patient. None of this could be possible without his guidance and expertise. Thank you, George, for becoming a friend and allowing us to retire and enjoy my time with my family.

Jim Melton, Seller

Robbie Cox, President

I received a call from George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services about a Harley-Davidson dealership for sale in my area. As a Harley rider/enthusiast, I got excited about the opportunity to own Guidera’s Harley-Davidson. George was very instrumental in helping negotiate and purchase the dealership from a long-time family owned dealer. It was a very emotional transaction, but George was very professional, thorough and was available days, nights and weekends to make the transaction happen. I encourage anyone in the market looking to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership to give George and Performance Brokerage Services a call.

Rami Yanni, Buyer

Having built a strong relationship with George Chaconas over the past several years by acquiring Kutter Harley-Davidson in Janesville, WI, I told George we wanted to acquire another dealership.

We are forever indebted to George for his help and guidance in acquiring a second H-D dealership.

Bryson Stephens, Seller

George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services contacted me in reference to a Harley-Davidson dealership he had engaged to market and sell. After I signed the Confidentiality Agreement, George shared the opportunity and information on Harley-Davidson of Long Branch, New Jersey. I have had a strong interest and desire to own that dealership and expand my territory for years. I was very excited about working with George and making a deal happen. This dealership was the perfect strategic fit. George was very informative, professional, and shared all pertinent information very quickly. He was extremely helpful in successfully maintaining confidentiality while negotiating through the Letter of Intent, especially since the seller, Jeff Margaritell was very concerned about word getting out that he was selling his dealership. I knew that Jeff was most likely nervous and uncomfortable about me having discussions about and buying his store as we were direct competitors for many years. Once Jeff and I became comfortable with each other, with George’s assistance, we were able to work through a buy/sell in order to consummate a deal that all parties felt was fair and equitable. I look forward to continuing the legacy that Jeff began 43 years ago at Harley-Davidson of Long Branch. I greatly appreciate George’s assistance in navigating through this transaction and would definitely recommend him and Performance Brokerage Services if you are buying or selling a dealership.

Asa Murray, Buyer
Ocean County Harley-Davidson, New Jersey

I frequently received inquiries and notices regarding recent transactions of Harley-Davidson dealerships from George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services. I finally made the very difficult and emotional decision to call George Chaconas to guide me in the sale of my dealership. George and his team put together an opinion of value which I felt was fair and was very comfortable with. I felt even more confident due to their vast buy/sell experience and ability to maximize the value of my dealership through their marketing and sales process. Ironically, George was able to negotiate a win/win purchase price with my biggest competitor. George convinced me that he was the most qualified and best buyer to carry on my legacy at Harley-Davidson of Long Branch. After being in business for over 43 years some of my customers include Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi among others. George was very responsive throughout the entire transaction, from the Letter of Intent to the Buy/Sell to the Closing, always returned my calls quickly and promptly, day or night and even on weekends. Without George’s expertise, integrity and honesty throughout the process, I do not know what would have happened or how this transaction would have panned out. He was very professional and diligent in educating me and I want to thank George very much for his ability to keep me centered and focused during this very emotional transition in my life. I would highly recommend George and Performance Brokerage Services if you are considering selling or buying a Harley-Davidson dealership.

Jeff Margaritell, Seller

Coweta Harrison, Seller

After almost 26 years being a Harley-Davidson dealer, my family and I decided that we should make the emotional, but necessary call to George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. Before contacting George, I reached out to some of my neighboring dealerships in northern California to see how they felt about George and his services. The reports were all very positive. George flew out and met me and my family and worked hard to find the unique buyer for our dealership. Without George’s commitment, discipline, persistence and follow through we might not have had such a successful closing. My family wants to personally thank George, and I would recommend him if you are planning on buying or selling your dealership.

Shelton Davis, President

George began the sale of my dealership, Streit’s Motorsports, with a cold call and accomplished what is usually impossible…he actually got me to talk with him when most such calls last about ten seconds. True salesmanship! George was exceptionally responsive with his follow up. Through the challenges we faced such as manufacturers’ approval and real estate encroachment, George remained highly motivated and very helpful, educating both buyer and seller as to what is customary during a buy/sell. George helped me and my family to prepare for the next phase of life and retirement. George and Performance Brokerage Services are true professionals in every way. They will get the job done!

Michael Jones, Seller
Streit’s Motorsports

For several years, we had been thinking about selling Waugh Enterprises Harley-Davidson. We received mail regularly from George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services, and ultimately contacted them to explore our options. Owning the dealership for 40 years made this a difficult and emotional decision for my family. George identified numerous potential buyers. After long and tenuous negotiations with a local Harley-Davidson dealer, we finally reached an agreement with George’s help. George held our hands throughout the entire process and until the closing. We highly recommend George and Performance Brokerage Services if you are in the market to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership.

Waugh Family, Sellers
Waugh Harley-Davidson in Orange, Virginia

The experience with George Chaconas was one of complete professional satisfaction. As a franchised automobile and a motorcycle dealer since 1983, I have bought and sold over 10 businesses. George was as great at his job as anyone I have ever done business with. He brought me only qualified buyers with business experience and financial ability to strike a deal with. We were also able to keep the sale almost completely under wraps until the closing. He absolutely maintained confidentiality. If you are looking to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership, you should trust George Chaconas to represent you. He will maximize the dollar and minimize the time your business is on the market. George knows and understands what the buyer and seller are trying to do, and helps all parties achieve that goal.

Ricky Kelley, President
Harley-Davidson of Columbia, Tennessee

George Chaconas was responsive throughout the entire transaction, providing frequent updates and endless guidance. George Chaconas quickly identified a qualified buyer and worked the transaction until the closing. The entire transaction was quick, fair and simple.

George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services was introduced to us by an existing Harley-Davidson dealer to help us learn more about purchasing our first dealership.

He shared with us his very vast experience and industry expertise to facilitate and assist us in acquiring Kutter Harley-Davidson of Janesville and Monroe Wisconsin. We sincerely appreciate George’s tenacity, persistence and commitment to help us become a Harley-Davidson dealer and we look forward to working with George to help us buy our second store in the near future.

Eric Pomeroy, President

Having sold my prior business through an investment banker, I knew the value of having an expert in the industry sell my Harley-Davidson dealership. I contacted George Chaconas from Performance Brokerage Services because I constantly get notifications of other Harley-Davidson transactions that George has completed nationwide. When George met with me in Santa Fe for the first time, I knew I could trust him to sell my dealership. Throughout the transaction, George was responsive, professional, and most importantly, ethical. The deal was as smooth as could be. Thank you, George!

Danny Spurlock, Seller
Santa Fe Harley-Davidson, New Mexico

In 2009, I tried to sell my dealership with George’s help, but the economy collapsed so we took the dealership off the market. George continued to guide me over the past six years since I couldn’t commit to retiring just yet. I loved being a Harley-Davidson dealer, it was in my blood. I had been riding for decades and owned Black Widow Harley-Davidson with my family for 11 years. As the market started to recover in 2014, George began to reach out to me more often regarding current market conditions, the value of my dealership and meeting at the national Harley-Davidson conferences. With his persistence, industry knowledge and expertise at deal structuring, George found the perfect buyer for my store. During this very emotional transaction and transition, there were many times I wanted to throw in the towel, but George was a pro at keeping me on task and focused on the end game – my retirement. I truly appreciate George’s guidance, understanding, and patience throughout the process. Look no further than George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services when you are considering selling or buying a Harley-Davidson dealership.

Terry Davis, Seller
Eagle’s Nest in Lathrop, California

Since selling my car dealership in 2014, I have been interested in becoming a Harley-Davidson dealer. George Chaconas shared with me a few dealership opportunities, ultimately purchasing Black Widow Harley-Davidson in Port Charlotte, FL. The dealership was a great fit for me. Having family in Florida, I could relocate my wife and family there. It was a great chance to take the dealership to next level through marketing and special events. It was a very long and difficult process to close the transaction, coupled with the seller’s emotional ties to the business. With George’s help in managing the deal and the seller’s expectations, we were able to reach a closing. I appreciate George’s efforts and experience in holding the deal together during some very difficult obstacles. I would recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone looking to buy or sell a dealership.

Bert King, Buyer
Black Widow Harley-Davidson of Port Charlotte, Florida

I contacted George Chaconas to explore the buy/sell market after I had received numerous announcements of Harley-Davidson dealerships he had sold. Located only an hour from our current operation, George brought to my family the perfect strategic acquisition opportunity with Eagle’s Nest Harley-Davidson in Lathrop, California. We felt that George genuinely had our best interests in mind and thank him for sharing the opportunity with our family and new partner.

Andrew Westbrook
Harley-Davidson of Sacramento, California

After receiving numerous solicitations and tombstone announcements from George Chaconas, I finally decided to give him a call. George flew out to Vermont to meet with me and my team so that we could discuss the buy/sell market conditions. We expressed to George that we would be interested in a lifestyle store in the Southwest. George found for us exactly what we had been looking for when he brought to us Santa Fe Harley-Davidson. If you are looking to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson dealership, I highly recommend George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services.

David Pearson, President
Multi-States, Harley-Davidson Dealership Group

I had owned Heritage Cycles Harley-Davidson for 17 years and although the dealership was not on the market and I was not ready to retire, George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services introduced me to a buyer who was extremely qualified and a perfect strategic fit. George brought me an offer from the buyer that I couldn’t refuse and after meeting and spending time with the buyer, I knew that he had the background, experience and ability to take Heritage Cycles to the next level. Selling a family business can be an emotional process, especially when it has been in the family for 34 years. George made the sale of Heritage Cycles Harley-Davidson a very smooth transaction, and I am confident that the buyer will continue the legacy my brother began in 1980 and I continued for the past 17 years.

Dianne Biancanello, Seller
Heritage Harley-Davidson of Fort Walton Beach, Florida

“John and Jonny were hands on and part of the whole transaction from start to finish. It was their connections and expertise that made this transaction happen in under 3 months and I couldn’t be happier! Hands down made our purchasing of a second dealership experience an absolute dream. I look forward to purchasing another store through them soon.”

John Adams, Jr.

George Chaconas was the right person to help put together our recent acquisition where Bayside acquired a CDJR store in King George, Virginia. During the difficult times, he was a voice of reason and helped keep the deal moving forward. Without his personal involvement, this deal would not have happened. I would not hesitate to recommend George and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone thinking of buying or selling a dealership.

Performance Brokerage Services was an absolute pleasure to work with.  They worked extremely hard to find the perfect fit as a first-time buyer. They treated me with the utmost professionalism and went the extra mile especially in light of the extra difficulties in closing a deal for not only a first time buyer, but a Canadian buyer purchasing in the United States. I cannot thank Jesse Stopnitzky and his team enough for making the process seamless and enjoyable.

Paul Kechnie and Performance Brokerage Services were great to work with during our purchase of a Ford dealership. Paul’s professionalism and experience were a real asset throughout the transaction. He did a great job of setting clear expectations from the beginning and his follow up really sets him apart from other brokers we have worked with. I would highly recommend them and look forward to working with them again in the future.

Jim Snell, President
Jaguar Land Rover Group, Texas

When I decided to divest of one of my dealerships, I called Paul Kechnie. I found Paul to be professional, ethical and responsive. He found me a great buyer, the transaction was seamless and more than fair for all parties. Thank you Paul for all your hard work!

Bruce Milnes, President
Milnes Auto Group, Michigan

Over the years, George Chaconas and I developed a business and personal relationships. He recently introduced me to an acquisition opportunity in a market that perfectly fit my existing stores. George was very instrumental in the buy-sell process and managing the seller's expectations. He was very professional, ethical and honest. I would highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.

I called Paul Kechnie and discussed selling my Chevrolet Buick GMC dealership in Chillicothe, MO. I found Paul to be very knowledgeable, trustworthy and honest about my options. I listed with Paul and a few months later, we closed on the store. Paul was great to work with throughout the process. I highly recommend Paul and Performance Brokerage Services.

Brent Wyant, Seller
Barnes Baker CDJR Chevrolet Buick GMC, Missouri

PBS's Paul Kechnie was a great counselor and came with prospects in hand, in addition to working the phones, to bring multiple qualified prospects for my store. Performance Brokerage Service and Paul understand valuations, motivations, pace of the process and were straight shooters. I was most satisfied with their professional and experienced help and would recommend them.

David Ogan, Seller

Performance Brokerage Services and Paul Kechnie did a great job for us. They worked hard to make it happen and communicated with us at every step. Thanks Paul!

The team, led by Moshe Stopnitzky, of Performance Brokerage Services is the only choice for our group when seeking to acquire dealerships. Their knowledge and ability to bring together selling and buying dealers is second to none; always with great integrity and never unfairly priced for their services. When we ready ourselves to buy another store … they are the only team we’ll call.

Rick Berry, President
Tate's Auto Group, Arizona/New Mexico

It has been my privilege to work with Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services. They are totally committed team players with tons of insight and incredible skills. When the going gets tough, they get going. I thank them so much for the experience, and am looking forward to the next one.

Daniel Crainic, CEO & Founder

John and Jonny Mecham of Performance Brokerage Services have always been a trusted resource of mine. They understand the complexities of the business and have a tremendous amount of experience. This was not our first transaction with the Mechams and it won’t be the last. They did a terrific job bringing both parties together, and the transaction was smooth from start to finish. I think both parties would agree it was a win-win. I would confidently recommend John, Jonny, and Performance Brokerage Services.

Casey Wheeler, Buyer
Jensen-Wood CDJR, Idaho

I’ve been involved in several dealership transactions over the years and have never worked with a better group of guys than John Mecham and Jason Stopnitzky at Performance Brokerage Services. They both are honest, aggressive, and hard working. I consider them both trusted friends. I look forward to many more deals with Performance Brokerage for many years to come.

Josh Griffin, President
Multi-Dealer, Montana/Wyoming

Hello, my name is Tony Pappas. My previous job was 23 years in the automotive business, until I picked up the phone and called Performance Brokerage Services. It was the best phone call I ever made in my entire life. Seven months later, I am the managing partner of two thriving automotive dealerships. That’s all because of Performance Brokerage Services. They are by far and away, the most professional group you will ever deal with, hands down, period. Look no further than Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services. They changed my life, they will change yours too.

Tony Pappas, Operator
Premier CDJR Hyundai, California

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Moshe Stopnitzky over the years and he has assisted me in completing several transactions. If you are interested in top notch professionalism and want to get a deal done, Moshe Stopnitzky should be your first call. I cannot recommend Performance Brokerage Services highly enough.

Jeff Koehnke, President
Power Auto Group, Oreon

Like many car guys, I am a skeptic when it comes to auto dealership brokers, but Jason exemplifies a true professional in the business. His experience and ability makes an otherwise difficult process seem very easy. I have been able to get to know Jason on a personal level over the years, and I can say that I am honored to call him a friend.

Matthew Stinson, COO
Roundtree Auto Group, California/Louisiana/Texas

I evaluate on an average 25 dealerships a year as potential acquisitions. In doing so, I have worked with brokers from every national brokerage company to many small brokerages groups. I have known virtually every type of broker: from brokers that commit fraud, to those that cannot tell the difference between stores. I can honestly say that Jason is one of the most knowledgeable and insightful brokers that I have known. Unlike any other broker, he can speak knowledgeably about virtually any market in the US, and also has a keen understanding of internal dealership’s operations. This unique combination makes him a valuable consultant as well as a broker. He is one of the only brokers in the business that you SHOULD know.

Nicholas Parks, President
Multi-Dealer, California/Alabama

I have known Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky for many years. Over that time we have purchased and sold several dealerships with their assistance. Moshe has always looked out for my best interest in all of our dealings, and has earned my trust. Not only do I consider him a great business professional, I also consider the Stopnitzky’s great friends. They have been a significant factor in our success.

Ralph Martinez, President
Multi-Dealer, Oregon/Washington

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Moshe Stopnitzky and his son Jason for over 13 years, and I think they are one of the best car dealership brokers in the business. They are honest and fair in doing deals. I bought one of my dealerships with their help. Not only was Moshe there all the way to finish the deal, he called me every month to see how I was doing until I got it under control! I am happy to say that Moshe is a friend, and I look forward to do a lot more business with him and Performance Brokerage Services in the future.

Hooman Nissani, President
Hooman Auto Group, California

Doing business with Paul Kechnie and Performance Brokerage Services has been a very pleasant experience! From our first consultation we realized very quickly that these guys get it. As a small privately held auto group, they made it a point to understand our business goals and quickly identified and created acquisition opportunities that were a great fit. Through those efforts we were able to confidently work with sellers to secure our deal in an efficient and productive manner. It is with great pleasure and confidence that I recommend Paul and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone regardless of size considering a dealership acquisition or sale.

Thomas Bies
President, Elm Creek Auto Group

I just want to thank you and personally acknowledge that without your services and appropriate intervention from time to time I am confident that the sale of Performance Chevrolet Buick GMC would not have happened. From the very first time that I met you and was introduced to Performance Brokerage Services I have been impressed with the service. Looking back I can honestly state that without your services to break the fog of selling a dealership, it never would have happened. It was really important that you have been a dealer yourself and had to go through exactly the same things we had to face. The fee for your services was absolutely the best money or investment that I have made during my career which spans 43 years.

KR and Norma Reinschmidt, Sellers
Performance Chevrolet Buick GMC, Idaho

I can’t thank you enough for the professional way you have handled the sale of Fremont Ford. In addition to outstanding counsel, your relationship with Ford made the process quick and painless. It’s invaluable to have an asset like Performance Brokerage to help, at any time of the day, navigate the emotional event selling a store can be. They have become more than brokers, they have become friends. I wouldn’t consider using anyone else.

Steve Hallock, Seller
Fremont Ford, California

We worked with George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services who did an excellent job brokering our purchase of 2 Toyota dealerships in Virginia. George was consistently on top of a very complicated transaction to ensure we all got to the finish line. His positive energy and constant follow-up were essential ingredients to completing the purchase – I recommend him highly.

Vince Sheehy, IV, President
Sheehy Auto Stores, Virginia/Maryland

Performance Brokerage helped me find my first dealership. I have always been treated like family. The fee paid is well worth it and will come back to you tenfold. They will help you with every detail, keeping the deal together and seeing it through to the end. The deal would have fallen apart many times without their experience.

Chris Gadzia, President
Coos Bay Nissan, Oregon

I’ve worked with Performance Brokerage for over 11 years and would place them at the top of our industry with respect to running a trustworthy and professional dealership brokerage firm. Their follow up and attention to detail is the best in the business.

Greg Gilmore, President

Chris Olson, President

I have the utmost respect for Moshe Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services. My dealings with Moshe have been more like dealing with a friend. His honesty and integrity are beyond reproach. And he gets the job done!

Rick Wilson, Seller
Wilson Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Nissan, Washington

This deal would have never happened without the persistence and poise of Performance Brokerage. My experience with brokers has mostly been that they just wait for the deal to happen, but Performance was tenacious in making the deal happen. They were upfront and honest throughout the transaction, providing experience as to what is customary in the buy/sell process. They never let the emotions of the parties stand in the way of a deal. I highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services to anyone looking to buy or sell a dealership.

Dan Johnson, Seller
Metro Kia, Georgia

We had the pleasure of working with George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services with our recent acquisition of two high line franchises. We identified the franchises and geographical areas we were interested in growing, and George quickly came back with several opportunities through his contacts that fit our criteria. We would not have known about these opportunities without his involvement. From the introduction to the seller, to the hand off, through the contract negotiating, and throughout the closing George provided whatever assistance we needed from him. As a buyer in today’s competitive market, I highly recommend using Performance Brokerage Services to help you find targeted opportunities to grow your business.

Mike Dayhoff
Phil Smith Auto Group, Florida

Performance Brokerage is a pleasure to work with. Their connections have presented excellent opportunities for our consideration over the years. Their combination of professionalism and friendliness are unmatched among their peers.

David Pollard
Berge Automotive Group, Arizona

I have worked on behalf of clients with Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services for almost 17 years. They have been an invaluable part of the always important selling/transaction team, and have consummated many transactions for my clients. They care about each client, they work hard to attain the goal of each client, they do the homework required for each client, and they recommend what they think is best for each client, even if it is not what the client was hoping to hear.

Ronald L. Coleman, Attorney at Law
Davies Pearson, P.C., Washington

At 58 years of age, and the pending sale of a dealership  I had been associated with for 29 years as the General Manager, (ironically, sold by Performance Brokerage Services) I was faced with a decision as to whether or not to seek employment elsewhere or jump into the deep end of the pool and buy my own. A lifelong dream of owning my own store became a reality when I closed on the purchase of not one but two franchised new vehicle dealerships. I am now the proud owner of Kingman Chevrolet-Buick and Kingman Honda, located in Kingman, AZ. I am convinced that this would not have been achieved without the assistance of Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services. Jason guided me through the arduous process, working diligently with both manufacturers as well as providing direction and references to individuals that helped facilitate my applications. He never wavered in his commitment to make my dream come true. He was a settling influence, remained focused throughout and knew when to back off when faced with obstacles that ultimately arose during the negotiation and approval process. On many occasions I was dissuaded by others from pursuing my dream but Jason kept pushing and encouraging me to continue. I wholeheartedly recommend the entire Performance Brokerage Services team as they truly provided exceptional assistance in this purchase. They share the same passion for the automobile business as we in retail. Jason’s optimism was infectious and was the settling influence needed to eventually close the deals.

Jim Flynn, President
Kingman Chevrolet Buick Honda, Arizona

Over the years I heard of the work done by Moshe Stopnitzky, from friends and business associates. When it came time for me to sell two dealerships, I interviewed him and he interviewed me. We agreed on the conditions of a relationship, which resulted in the sale of the dealership at a fair price to seller and buyer. Later, another dealership sale was completed by Moshe. My first call would always go to Performance Brokerage Services.

Ed Fitzpatrick, President
Fitzpatrick Dealership Group, California

We have had the pleasure of working with George Chaconas over the past 7 years. George is extremely proactive in bringing us stores that fit our needs. He is easy to deal with and is very effective in communicating with all parties involved.  George works very hard to ensure a smooth closing and is tireless in his efforts to ensure both parties are satisfied with the transaction. We highly recommend George and Performance Brokerage Services for all your buying and selling needs and look forward to closing our next deal with them!

Don Jenkins, President
Jenkins Auto Group, Florida

I worked with John Mecham from Performance Brokerage Services in selling my Ford Dealership. John Mecham was truly an asset to the closing. As in many things we get emotionally attached, John kept us on task and the entire transaction went off without an issue. We were pleased with the outcome and would recommend John and Performance  Brokerage Services to anyone.

John Barber, President
Barber Bros. Ford, Utah

I was absolutely delighted with the professional and expert assistance my clients and I received from Moshe Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services with respect to the sale of the assets of my client’s Honda dealership and the related real property. This was a particularly challenging sale because of my client’s advanced age, family squabbles and the operational difficulties in the management of the dealership. Despite these very difficult obstacles, Moshe was able to garner the confidence of my clients and with very little preparation and input from our side, brought us six excellent offers. He wisely counseled us to accept an offer from one of the six buyers who, as Moshe predicted, proved able to close the deal with no financing contingencies and no downward adjustments in the sales price. Given this marvelous result in an incredibly challenging business transaction, I can confidently recommend Moshe Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services as the business broker to retain when you or your client are selling an automobile dealership.

Evan O. ThHomas, III, Attorney at Law
Washington

I have dealt with both Moshe & Jason for several years now. I have the utmost respect for them & the way they do business. They are truly a class act!

Rahim Hassanally, President
Momentum Auto Group, California

I have had the pleasure of knowing Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky for some time. I have personally experienced great sense of care, ethics and loyalty provided by their company. I have no doubt that they would represent both buyer and the seller in the most professional way.

Al Monjazeb, President
Luxury Auto Group, Washington/California

Jason Stopnitzky was involved in selling one of my dealerships. Before listing the dealership with Jason, we established minimum and clear goals of what we wanted to accomplish. If the buyer was outside our goal lines, Jason did not bother me until he was close. It made the transaction go smoothly for both me and the buyer. I will use Jason again to buy or sell a car dealership.

Doug Moreland
Dealing Doug Auto Group, Multi-States

Performance Brokerage Services did an excellent job by facilitating and buffering the dealer to dealer communications and handling the negotiations on our recent purchase. The services they provided were invaluable. John Mecham of Performance Brokerage Services knows the car business from top to bottom. Consequently, all contractual and legal issues involved in our recent dealership purchase went very smoothly. John Mecham was very professional. I would highly recommend his services.

Paul Stevens, Seller
Nissan Kia of Pocatello, Idaho

Jason Stopnitzky and his Dad worked tirelessly to sell our dealership from day one. Even though we were selling a small single point store, Performance Brokerage Services worked around the clock to overcome many challenges and make our sale successful. If you are considering selling or buying a car dealership you should look no further than these hard working brokers and gentlemen.

Gabe Johansen, Seller
Nissan of Salem, Oregon

I have been working with Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky over the years and they are extremely knowledgeable when it comes to really understanding today’s business, and always seem to find that hard to find franchise without wasting a lot of time. They also know what’s fair for the seller and the buyer to make them both feel comfortable

Steve Kienle, President
Walter's Auto Group, California

As car dealers we are consumed with the various aspects of operating our stores at a high level daily.

Trust is something that is hard to find in the business world and there are few people that I can use this word with.

I will continue to forward to him any leads that I can as I hold him in the highest regard.

Hank Sames
President, Sames Auto Group

The principals at Performance Brokerage Services have a vast amount of knowledge and experience in dealing with automotive dealers and the highly sensitive nature of buy/sell transactions. This experience, coupled with their contacts in the industry and their ability to maintain confidentiality, is the reason Performance Brokerage Services successfully closed numerous transactions during 2011 despite the continued tight credit environment.

Joe Connolly

Steve Zabawa, President
Rimrock Auto Group, Montana

After surviving through Katrina we decided to acquire a dealership in California. I had never owned or operated a store in CA so it was a very large learning experience for us. Jason Stopnitzky knew an incredible amount of information on all the major markets and helped us acquire a Toyota store in San Diego. Since that acquisition we have purchased more stores in CA and Jason has been an incredible wealth of knowledge. I would recommend Jason from Performance Brokerage Services to anyone who is thinking about buying a new car dealership. We have enjoyed our relationship and will continue to use him in the future.

Troy Duhon, Founder
Premier Auto Group, Multi-States

I have had the good fortune over the last 17 years to work on and close hundreds of dealership transactions (auto, cycle, and heavy-truck) throughout the United States. Many of those transactions involved brokers or consultants who brought the parties together, facilitated negotiations, and helped with shepherding the deal over the occasional rough spots on the way to a closing. I have worked with George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services on numerous transactions. George is a high energy guy with a passion for the business. He is competent, professional, and diligent in the representation of his clients, and a valuable catalyst for moving deals to a successful closing. I heartily recommend George at Performance Brokerage Services.

Robert A. Bass, Attorney at Law

I have been doing business with Performance Brokerage Services for over 11 years. Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky have become very close friends. I have been involved in 3 transactions with these fine gentlemen. They recently sold my Ford dealership in Richwood, Texas and I had the pleasure of working with their Texas Partner, Paul Kechnie. Like the Stopnitzky’s, I found Paul to be discrete, knowledgeable and professional throughout the whole process. These gentlemen were always available to answer questions and handle concerns at any time of the day or night. If I buy or sell a dealership in the future, it will not be without this highly qualified group of people. They are the tops in the dealership brokerage business!

Bobby Ford, Seller
Bobby Ford of Richwood, Texas

Your professionalism and consistent communication with the customer is outstanding! I appreciate all that you have done for us and our business and would highly recommend you to anyone.

Jason Silva
Serpa Automotive, California

Moshe Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage Services is a man of integrity. He will work hard to put a deal together that fits your needs.

Moshe Stopnitzky and his company Performance Brokerage Services has always provided the best service for both seller and buyer. With the years of experience and knowledge he really understand what it takes to move a deal along.

If I was offered a deal outside of Performance Brokerage Services, I would still ask for Moshe to review the deal.

Walter's Auto Group
Riverside, California

Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky are true automotive brokers professionals. When it came time to sell our family owned Ford dealership of forty years, we interviewed several dealership brokers.

Ken Walker, President
Honda of Casper, Wyoming

Over a 7 year period I have had the great fortune of utilizing Moshe Stopnitzky’s services on the purchase of three dealerships. While Moshe was the listing broker on two of the sales, I feel that he truly listened and worked to achieve the common goal of both the seller and the buyer. He got to the right deal for both parties!

Phil Bivens, President
Multi-Dealer, Washington

I feel that everyone should retain Moshe Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services. I have experienced firsthand what a great job Moshe can do for you. We started without Moshe to sell our BMW dealership. The people trying to buy our store did a great job of trying to buy it at the lowest possible price. After about a year of unsolicited offers, I came to the conclusion that I would sell the store. I spoke with friends and Moshe was recommended to me. Moshe visited us in our CPAs office and we discussed the previous bids received and the current marketplace. Moshe had good contacts and he communicated our interest in selling. We received very good bids and we proceeded to sell to the highest bidder. There was no hassle, just good friendship.

Steve Norman
Washington

What a pleasure to work with John Mecham and Performance Brokerage Services. John understands both sides of a transaction and has a knack of bringing both sides together.

Your professionalism and expertise in the industry helped me to maximize the value of the franchise, while streamlining the process.

John Dionas, President
Penninsula Subaru, Washington

I had no plans of selling my car dealership, but the letter I received from Jason Stopnitzky intrigued me. The letter said that he had a buyer and that he would disclose the buyer’s name if I was interested. In connection with the contract’s negotiations, he was very upfront with me and the buyer. He seemed as a very impartial broker. Even though he worked for the buyer, I felt he worked hard to protect my interest as well.

Bill Rogers, Seller
Bill Rogers Honda, Oregon

These are some of my feelings about Jason Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services: I knew I had a choice of whom I went with when it came to brokerage firms. Jason, along with his company, was a cut above the rest when it comes to car dealership brokers. It was like he was an old friend of mine. I know it wasn’t just by chance that I ran across Performance Brokerage Services. Jason has been very professional and he knows all the dealer principals in this area by first name. He has also been very much on the ball, never letting a day go by and working extra hours to get the deal done. He got me a LOI within 2 weeks. I knew he would look out for my interest. He also knows his job is not done until the store is completely sold. Jason from Performance Brokerage Services is professional, bold, very knowledgeable, energetic and one that knows how to get the job done!

I used Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services in a consulting and advisory role in a recent dealership sale. I was extremely impressed with their knowledge of the real time marketplace valuations. They provided a strong guidance backed by solid and current numbers that were real time in the market. In today’s marketplace they are clearly plugged in to the current trend and values. Moshe and Jason took a personal interest in the client as well as the transaction! I highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services.

Jason Stopnitzky handled our transaction with expertise! He was tenacious in getting our deal done even with huge obstacles presented by the banking industry in 2008, with the looming recession. I cannot say enough good things about his abilities as a dealership broker to close a deal! Thanks for all your help.

Jon Keller,

I haven’t known Jason Stopnitzky for many years, though he has made me feel as we have throughout the process. His knowledge and insight take him far beyond his years and it is not just limited to the automotive industry. I have not only found a broker for life, Jason has also become a friend. I have worked with enough dealership brokers to confidently say, that this group is rivaled by none! They are owed my highest recommendation coupled with my loyalty. Thank you Jason for seeing an opportunity and having the ability to join a dynamic leader with a fantastic dealer group by way of your life changing match making!

I really appreciate Jason Stopnitzky’s professionalism and his knowledge of the markets. It amazes me how he has a working relationship with so many principals and has a firsthand knowledge of most of their businesses.

Chuck Holder, President

Leroy Elkins, President

When my brother-in-law and I made the decision to sell our dealership, we asked Moshe Stopnitzky to help with the valuation, the listing and the sale.

Randy Haas, President
Freedom Ford Lincoln, Arizona

Being a CDJ dealer that got caught up in the Chrysler’s bankruptcy, we found it impossible to secure a flooring line. Consequently we sought and retained Moshe Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage to use all of his resources in order to find a qualified buyer for this franchise. We had heard about Moshe’s professionalism, and his many completed, successful buy-sell agreements, which were made possible because of his persistent marketing abilities. He took on the challenge feeling confident that he would be successful. Along with his talented son, Jason, they never stopped trying to help us and finally located a buyer in an 11th hour. Great job guys!

Alan Claycamp, Seller
Santa Maria CDJR, California

As a young dealer group looking to grow our portfolio, we recently worked with George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services on the acquisition of Fields Treasure Coast Jaguar Land Rover franchises in Florida.  This was our first experience with George and Performance Brokerage Services. This firm and their knowledge of the auto industry as well as their professionalism is unmatched.

Michael Grieco, Jr., President
Grieco Automotive Group, Multi-States

I have known George Chaconas for years, including working together in the past. Focusing on the building of my new BMW dealership in Gainesville, I contacted George to represent me in the sale of my Gainesville Volkswagen dealership. George is honest, professional and knowledgeable. I often confer with George on dealership valuations, market conditions or new acquisition opportunities. I recommend Performance Brokerage Services for your buying and selling needs.

Jim Gettel, President
Gettel Automotive Group, Florida

We were trying to buy a store and we looked everywhere, but had no luck. So my son decided to get a broker involved and hired Paul from Performance Brokerage Services to assist us. After Paul found us a store, we decide to list ours with him as well. Within a week, we had 3 offers. It was a really great experience, and everything went very well. We would definitely use Performance again.

Eddie Yaklin

Buying or selling a dealership can be a very eventful experience. That is why smart dealers use professionals like lawyers, CPA’s and must use a qualified Broker. A Good Broker can sift through the emotions and concerns to help both sides come to a successful conclusion. That is why I highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services and especially John Mecham. John was a dealer himself and was inducted into the New Car Dealers Hall of Fame. He has done it all! John looks for ways to make things happen in a positive way. Again, I highly recommend John and Performance Brokerage Services to help you avoid the frustrations in the acquisition or sale of your new car dealership.

Kory Hooks
Hooks Automotive, Texas

Jason Stopnitzky has been an excellent source of information and understands the dealer’s life as well as anyone that I have ever met. When I was in the business and was searching for more dealerships opportunities, he was there every step of the way to answer all of my crazy questions, and to make the process of buying a dealership as easy as it could be. Even when I did not end up making the move, he treated me with respect and care as if I had. When the time comes for me to re-enter the industry, Jason will be the first person and dealership broker that I will contact. If you are buying or selling a car dealership, Jason and his people are among the best in the game!

Michael Coury
Tempe, Arizona

My lifelong dream was to be engaged in the auto dealership business. Over a period of time and with the encouragement of some Toyota executives I proceeded with my goal and actively sought after my dream.

Not only is he a bright business person, but he will be a friend for life. May God richly bless you and your business.

Our experience with Performance Brokerage Services has been nothing short of extraordinary. We always seem to put together deals with many moving pieces; from land and facilities, to sometimes consolidating multiple franchises. Jason uses his knowledge and extensive experience in closing deals to guide us through the often difficult negotiations, and phases along the way. Jason keeps in constant contact and is available 24/7 to make sure the deal comes together. It’s great to have a partner with his talent, insight, drive and professionalism working with you throughout the process.

He’s tough and fair; tenacious and diplomatic; supremely competent and surprisingly humble; and, he has a most unique quality in this often contentious world, he has a code…a CODE of INTEGRITY that cannot be broken. When you work with Moshe, he gives everything he has…and, that is the rarest of gifts!

Jeff Boyd, Corporate Strategist

When we sold Pierce superstores to a large auto group, Moshe Stopnitzky made it happen. They are real pros, and they understand the market. The buyer, the seller and them, will work through the process with results and good council. If you are thinking of buying or selling a car dealership and need to select auto dealership brokers, Performance Brokerage Services is worth talking to.

Jim Pierce, President

I have worked with Jason Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage on multiple projects in the past and I can say from the heart that I would not deal with any other auto dealership broker in the country. Thank you Jason and Moshe. Looking forward to our next purchase!

Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services played a huge role working countless hours with all parties in making my 26-year dream come true to buy my first dealership Toyota of Poway.

Vincent Castro
Poway, California

I had the opportunity to conduct business recently with Performance Brokerage Services. I found them to be professional dealership brokers. They worked with us, the buyer and seller, to get the deal done as quickly as possible.

Douglas Grant
Tacoma, Washington

Performance Brokerage Services was most helpful in assisting our company in identifying an opportunity with an existing import dealership in our community. I would not hesitate to work with them in any other future purchases or sales. They deal with us with great integrity and responsiveness.

Tim White, President
White Family Companies, Inc., Multi-States

My first contact with Jason Stopnitzky about selling my dealership was in June of 2010. After meetings and conversations with Jason, I signed up with his company Performance Brokerage Services to sell the dealership. Within a month, he had a Letter of Intent from a very qualified candidate. Due to facility demands from Subaru, the deal fell through. Within a few months, we received another bonafide offer to purchase the dealership. That offer was with 99% of what we were looking for. Jason bent backwards to make the sale as smooth as it could possibly be. The end result for me, Jason was not only the broker, but my good friend. I would recommend him whole-heartedly. If you are looking to sell or purchase a car dealership, you will find no more competent broker to handle it for you, than my friend Jason.

Geoffrey Harris, President
Subaru of San Bernardino, California

I have known George and the principals at Performance Brokerage Services for many years and can represent that he and his company operate under a higher code of ethics and confidentiality. George assisted with the recent sale of my Kia store and I cannot recommend his services highly enough. Faced with a challenging project, George identified a buyer, worked the transaction from start to finish, and became a closer friend throughout the process. I always felt that he had our best interests in mind. Thank you for your hard work, George.

Terry Laughridge, President
Terry Reid Kia of Cartersville, Georgia

Many years ago I placed a call to Performance Brokerage Services, specifically Jason Stopnitzky, about the sale of my dealership and their process. I cannot begin to describe the genuine honor and professionalism I received from Jason answering my questions and concerns. Those conversations began a relationship of “truth” with great compassion for the possible life change I was looking for.

Over the years, we talked several more times, more just about “things” than the sale of the dealership. Then about a year ago, I made the decision I was ready for change, but what I did not know was where this change would lead. Jason would introduce John Mecham, a partner with the firm and my contact. We spent countless conversations over the next year discretely looking for just the right buyer for something I had spent 22 years building. John unknowingly was to become more than just a Performance Brokerage Services partner, but an amazing friend. John’s communication and tenacity was stellar throughout the process and it did not take long to realize I was working with another “Super Star” of this firm.

John and Jason not only found the right buyer, but helped create a new Auto Group that I am excited to be a part of. Sale, purchase and merger all at once with the right people and this firm is an amazing change in itself and a continued relationship with Performance Brokers is icing on the cake.

The best in the business!

Gust Kalatzes
Autofarm Castle Rock, Wyoming

Selling a business when it is not for sale openly, is very difficult to say the least. Jason worked with me over a two-year span to find the right buyer for our store. He worked with interested parties he knew confidentially until the right buyer was identified. This confidentiality element was paramount to us because we could not afford to have the “rumor mill “destroy the store in the interim. I would recommend Jason and Performance Brokerage Services to anyone. They are up front, honest and easy to work with. Sincerely,

Robb Walther, CFO
Lanphere Enterprises, Inc., Oregon

I have been in the automobile business since 1955 and knew that if I were to succeed it would be due to honesty, integrity and hard work. Over this lengthy period, I have owned several dealerships and bought and sold them personally. However, in today’s business climate, I found it much easier to engage someone with a great deal of experience, honesty, integrity and who worked very diligently to consummate the buy/sell transaction. Moshe Stopnitzky and his Company, Performance Brokerage Services, did an excellent job.

Bob Stone, Seller
Bob Stone Freeway Auto Center, Oregon

John Mecham presented at our Nov. 2014 meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona to the Driving Force Auto Consulting Group. He was a hit! With his strong background as a dealer and consultant, he was able to offer a unique perspective about the value of dealerships. Unlike the traditional, by the numbers approach, John opened our eyes to the many variables that shade a transaction and a valuation. I would recommend John and Performance Brokerage as a great resource if you are considering buying or selling a car dealership.

Dan James, CPA
James & Co., Utah

For many years, I have respected George Chaconas’ work ethic, tenacity and professionalism. George is a great resource and sound board as he is one of the more active auto dealership brokers. I appreciate his assistance in helping to create a win-win for both parties.

Larry Morgan
President, Morgan Auto Group

Working with Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services is like working with family or your best friend. From beginning to end, Jason is by your side when needed.

I just wanted to thank you Jason Stopnitzky, and Performance Brokerage Services, for all you have done to help my family and I through this transition in life. I know God works in strange ways. I do and always will believe that he was reaching out to me  through you that day. I know it may sound “corny” but I have no other real expectation of why you reached out and why I responded. But you did and I did. And as it turns out, I do think that God was preparing me for a bigger challenge in life than I ever could have imagined. And because of your efforts, I have an opportunity to fully take on this big battle in my life. I thank you, through your efforts and dedication, for truly changing the results of the course of the rest of my life, my families, and the families of Access Ford Lincoln. God Bless you my friend and your family.

Charlie Massey
Owner, Access Ford Lincoln

We hired Performance Brokerage Services to find us a well-qualified buyer for our Honda dealership in Tacoma, Washington. We wanted a buyer who would not only carry on our dealership commitment to our customers, but also appreciate the success of our entire team of employees.  In less than 30 days they presented an offer from a qualified buyer that we accepted. Confidentiality was carefully and successfully guarded during the entire transaction process. The professional experience of Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky was evident from our first meeting to closing. They did what we asked and what they said they would do. They delivered!

Ed J. McCarroll, Seller
South Tacoma Honda, Washington

I have known the team at Performance Brokerage Services for many years. I have recently acquired a dealership represented by them. I found their business conduct to be professional, ethical, timely and fair at all times. I recommend them and their services, if you are a buyer or a seller of a car dealership.

Larry Green, President
Green Auto Group, Multi-States

I have known Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage Services for many years now and trust them for their honesty and confidentiality. They are good guys to have in your corner.

Christopher Zikakis, President

I had the pleasure of working with Jason when my father, Richard Graham, decided to retire and sell the family dealership. He did a great job assisting our family through all the steps of selling our dealership. I highly recommend Jason and Performance Brokerage Services. Thanks for all your help.

Aaron Graham, Seller
Graham Chevrolet Cadillac, California

My partner and I were hesitant to use a broker, however we are so glad we did. Jason Stopnitzky was very professional every step of the way. A true sense of knowledge in every conversation we had. He was on top of the transaction from the beginning to the end. I highly recommend Jason and the team at Performance Brokerage Services. The amount of effort which they placed on our transaction helped ease us through a difficult process.

Rick Steenbock, Seller
Sterling Chevrolet, Illinois

Jason Stopnitzky was incredibly valuable in helping both the buyer and seller through the buy/sell process. He was able to help both parties reach a mutually beneficial agreement. He was respectful, knowledgeable, and determined through the entire process. The challenges for a first-time buyer are daunting, but he was there with valuable information each step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend Jason and Performance Brokerage Services for anyone looking to buy or sell their business

Lee Schreiber, President
Sterling Chevrolet, Illinois

After working for two years with two other brokers and little interest or success, I made my final phone call to Jason Stopnitzky at Performance Brokerage Services. He was very professional and convinced me he was the last broker I would ever need to talk to as he would sell my dealership. And in less than a year he did just that!

His analysis of developing the right proposal and pricing was spot on. Jason took my hand and lead me through the entire process. His salesman, Juan P made the right calls and marketed to the correct potential buyers. The follow up with each potential was relentless. I highly recommend Jason and Performance Brokerage Services.

Tom Fitzpatrick, Seller
Fitzpatrick Auto Center, Iowa

George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services was introduced to me by a mutual automobile dealer friend. I met George at the National Automobile Minority Automobile Dealers (NAMAD) annual meeting in Miami Beach to discuss the current market conditions and buying and selling of automobile dealerships. I found George to be very informative, knowledgeable, transparent, open and honest, and felt comfortable to work with him in the future. Since our meeting, George and I developed a strong relationship where he advised me on my recent sale of my Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram store of Madison, Georgia. In the meantime, George introduced me to Gordon Chevrolet in Augusta, Georgia and initially, I passed on it. George continued to suggest that I revisit the opportunity and with his persistence and perseverance, I decided to go visit the seller at his dealership in Augusta. After my visit, I realized that this was a great opportunity for me. George helped me understand the potential upside, negotiate the transaction and purchase the dealership. Without George’s tenacity and follow up, I would not have realized what a perfect fit this store was for my dealership group. Thank you very much, and I look forward to working with you in the near future. I would highly recommend George of Performance Brokerage Services to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell an automobile dealership.

Malcolm Cunningham, President
Malcolm Cunningham Auto Group, Georgia

After having our dealership listed for sale with another broker for a period of time, we decided to change brokers and reached out to George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services. George responded in a timely fashion and visited us at the dealership soon thereafter, where we interviewed him and decided to hire him to represent us in the marketing and sale of Gordon Chevrolet in Augusta, GA. After several attempts with multiple buyers, George finally identified the perfect and most qualified buyer, Malcolm Cunningham. George was very professional, responsive, engaged and worked tirelessly to ensure that the transaction was completed. The store sold because of George’s energy and salesmanship. Malcolm is the perfect dealer for our store, he should do very well there. We would definitely hire George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage Services in the future whether buying or selling an automobile dealership. Thank you, George, without you, this morning would not be happening.

Gordon Stewart, Seller
Gordon Chevrolet, Georgia

George Chaconas was referred to me by an automotive consultant who spoke very highly of him. I reached out to George and explained my situation – I needed help divesting one of my three Volkswagen stores as I was awarded a new point. I hired George to assist me in this endeavor. He was very professional, timely, followed up consistently and was very trustworthy. He put together a beautiful, comprehensive marketing package and we ended up conducting a limited auction. George was able to manage the auction process and identified the eventual buyer. Thank you, George and Performance Brokerage Services, for your help, professionalism and diligence which allowed me to divest my VW dealership prior the manufacturer’s deadline.

Jim Ellis, President
Jim Ellis Automotive Group, Georgia

I have just closed my third transaction with Performance Brokerage Services. Things couldn’t be any better. It was a great experience. Everything went just as planned. They worked through everything all along. If I ever buy or sell another store, I will not do it without them being involved. Even for this store, which I found myself, I asked them to be involved. I highly, highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services.

Eddie Yaklin, President
Yaklin Dealership Group, Texas

Having worked with George Chaconas in the past, I suggested that he reach out to Lake Nissan to see if they would be interested in selling. Ironically, George had recently developed a relationship and rapport with the long-time dealer. With George’s expert assistance, a quick offering and acceptance ensued, and we were able to put together a win-win deal. George was transparent and available, anytime I needed him to help facilitate the purchase. I appreciate the partnership and the relationship I’ve built with George and Performance Brokerage.

Donald Jenkins, President
Jenkins Auto Group, Florida/Georgia

Within the last few of years I received numerous letters and emails from George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services. I finally responded and requested a visit with George to consider my options. He was upfront, honest, and provided very practical advice. I told George that if the right situation with the right buyer came up that I would listen. Shortly thereafter he presented me with an offer from a highly qualified local dealer with a great reputation who could close very quickly. The transaction went very smoothly with George’s support and guidance. I am pleased with the service we received from George and it was a pleasure dealing with him and Performance Brokerage.

Milan Bakich, Seller
Lake Nissan of Leesburg, Florida

You’ve heard the old saying ‘a friend in need is a friend indeed.’ Well that applies to John Mecham of Performance Brokerage Services. Although I’ve had the good fortune to buy three new car dealerships during my thirty years in the car business, when it came time to sell, I knew I needed help. Enter John Mecham. His calm and confident manner along with his experience as both a broker and a dealer was exactly what I needed. He walked me through the entire process, starting with the gathering of information for the marketing packets…to identifying our best buyer…to helping both sides negotiate and find common ground…and finally, to ensuring we made it all the way to closing. Whether you are a buyer or a seller, you need someone on your side and John is your guy.

Mike Hanigan, Seller
Hanigan GM & CDJR, Idaho & Oregon

Paul contacted me on the Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram store that he had listed in my town, this store was a good fit. During the process of purchasing the dealership, I found Paul was available at any time to take my call and work through any issues that came up. Paul’s background in the industry and knowledge of Buy/Sell transactions was extremely helpful to close my dealership. I would definitely recommend Performance Brokerage Services to my business associates!

Phil Neessen, President
Neessen GM & CDJR, Texas

Thank you for your diligence in selling my store in Kingsville. I was very impressed with how many prospects you worked in a 4 day period before you sold it. Also, thank you for getting me very close to my asking price. I will call you again for another deal.

Blake Fulenwider, President
CDJR Dealership Group, Texas

After nearly 25 years of being a Chevrolet Dealer near Portland, selling my dealership was clearly the most difficult decision I’ve ever made…I struggled with the decision for about five years. Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage Services were AMAZINGLY PATIENT with me! When I eventually decided to sell, Performance Brokerage was there to guide me and look after my best interest. You will not find a more professional and integral group to have on your selling team than Performance Brokerage Services.

Loren Berg, Seller
Berg Chevrolet of Newberg, Oregon

Finally, I am physically and mentally wherever I am. Now that I sold, I plan to go on a vacation and not worry or think about the many issues back at the dealership. Thank you John Mecham and Performance Brokerage Services for your help and understanding. It would not have happened without you.

Cary Larson, Retired
Missoula Nissan Hyundai, Montana

About a year ago, I was introduced to Performance Brokerage Services (PBS) by a friend of mine who had an associate in a 20 group who used them for the sale of his Toyota dealership in the Northwest. I was given the Toyota dealer’s name and called him out of the blue. He didn’t know me, but was gracious enough to spend a lot of his time (in retirement) talking to me about how his deal came together and what great people he worked with at PBS.

PBS was faced with a very difficult conceptual sale for many reasons. They were able to find us the perfect buyer at our asking price and worked diligently with the buyer to overcome all his objections. They did a fantastic job of managing and moving along a very complex sale of two locations in two dispersed markets over 60 miles apart. I couldn’t believe that PBS was able to make it happen. I can’t say enough about their expertise and professionalism. They were there for us at every turn in the road until we crossed the finish line.

I have known and worked on projects with Jason Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services for several years. It has always been a pleasure working with him. He is one of the best and most knowledgeable in the industry. He’s always available when needed and forthright in the information you need to make a deal. His passion for the automotive business is second to none!

I would like to thank Moshe and Jason Stopnitzky for the level of service with our recent acquisition. Their professionalism and guidance made the process as easy as possible from beginning all the way through the finish line. Our family has had the opportunity to work with Moshe and Jason on several transactions, and couldn’t be happier with the relationship. We look forward to working together in the future, and would recommend Performance Brokerage Services to anyone.

I have known Jason Stopnitzky since 2006. In my experience I have found him to be always on top of his game. He is always available to talk to and ready to give you the industry insight. Dealing with Jason gives you the impression of a boutique outfit which is totally in tune to your needs. I was recently looking for a store in the Southern California market and probably made one of the best phone calls of my career. As always Jason listened to what I was looking for and before I hung up Jason had an opportunity that was a perfect fit for me. From there onward Jason led the way to a successful and seamless close. I felt every step of the way that Jason was by my side throughout the deal which included multi line franchises along with real estate. I am glad to call Jason a good friend, a sincere human being and a highly professional individual. I highly recommend him and will be looking forward to working with him again on future opportunities. Thank you Jason for everything you have done for me.

I have known Jason Stopnitzky for over 16 years and have worked with him on both sides of the dealership brokerage business. One in a potential purchase of a dealership and most recently on the selling of a multi-line dealership. The transaction included the dealership bulk sale and property and both were seamless and closed as expected. Jason’s knowledge, expertise and connections in the automotive sector proved invaluable. I wouldn’t do another transaction without Jason on my team.

George had several conversations with my buyer to help me navigate unforeseen issues that might have jeopardized the sale and George’s flexibility in this helped make sure the deal eventually closed.

There are a multitude of moving pieces when it comes to the purchase of a new dealership. They all fell into place thanks to a dedicated collection of professionals, including the team at Performance Brokerage Services. The Bachrodt Family is grateful for the expertise and knowledge that Performance brought to the table as they facilitated this purchase.

Rachel Bachrodt, Buyer
Baraboo Motors Group, Wisconsin

Paul Kechnie and Mark Shackelford of Performance Brokerage Services were outstanding to work with on the recent sale of our dealership. While detailing our situation during an initial meeting, Paul listened and asked very insightful questions to help us value our store and guide our expectations. Paul told us he would have a buyer within 30 days, but he actually produced three. Paul and Mark kept us informed during the process and guided us through the inevitable peaks and valleys of the sale of a large asset. I recommend Performance to anyone hoping to get through the sale of their dealership with little stress, while realizing maximum value.

Peter Steinhauer, Seller
Baraboo Motors Group, Wisconsin

I met Paul Kechnie of Performance Brokerage Services a couple years ago and we have since become friends. My store was not for sale, but I told Paul if the right conditions and right buyer came along, I would keep an open mind. Paul delivered. Even when it seemed to fizzle out, Paul kept the train on the tracks, kept everybody focused and calm, and consulted like a friend. The closing went smoothly, and Paul’s buyer was respectful and good to work with, but this deal never would have happened without Paul.

George Chaconas contacted me about buying another Harley-Davidson dealership in my area. As soon as he mentioned Harley-Davidson of Charlotte, I was very interested and excited to acquire it. I love the brand and the Charlotte market area. As a long-time car guy and a long-time partner with Billy Weaver of Harley-Davidson of Greenville, SC before buying him out, I really wanted to buy another Harley-Davidson dealership. George made the purchase really simple even though it was a very emotional sale for the Lipack family. I really enjoyed working with George and look forward to buying another store with him. If you are considering acquiring a Harley-Davidson dealership, I would contact George Chaconas & PBS!

From initial meeting, to closing, Jason Stopnitzky was a true professional and an exceptionally knowledgeable dealership broker. We were first time purchasers and Jason proved invaluable to the successful completion of our transaction.

I have known Moshe for over a dozen years. Moshe brokered for me my first car dealership. When hiring Moshe from Performance Brokerage Services to work for you, you can always expect to receive: commitment, loyalty, hard work, straight talk, expertise, ethical conduct and tenacity to get the job done. If you are in the market to buy or sell a dealership, I strongly recommend you call Moshe or his son Jason. They have my highest respect!
