TESTIMONIALS

Magog Ford

A fantastic dealership in Estrie, Magog Ford changes owners, as father and son Renaud and Patrick Fortier take the reins of the company. We would also like to congratulate the former owner, Gilles Beaucage, for all his work during his time at Magog Ford.

The DSMA Quebec team successfully completed this transaction. This is the testimonial from the new buyers:

“I would like to express my gratitude to Manon Messier for her exceptional support throughout the Magog Ford purchasing process. From the first contact, Manon demonstrated unparalleled professionalism, combined with an in-depth understanding of the market and to particular attention to our needs and those of the seller.

His recommendations were spot on. His expertise and ability to anticipate challenges made this experience not only easier, but also enjoyable. Manon was able to answer all my questions with patience and clarity, and her wise advice was invaluable at each stage of the transaction.

We were able to carry out this transaction with complete confidence and peace of mind. We recommend Manon and the DSMA team to anyone looking to buy or sell a dealership.

You have greatly contributed to the completion of this important project for us.”

              Brushy Mountain Powersports

              Exciting news! DSMA is thrilled to announce the successful sale of Brushy Powersports in South Carolina. Congratulations to Rob Schlicht, our DSMA Associate, for facilitating this fantastic deal. DSMA is wishing continued success to the new owners as they embark on their journey with Brushy Powersports, and heartfelt appreciation to the previous owners for their hard work and dedication.

               

              Testimonial by Tim Quinn, previous owner of Brushy Powersports

              Thank you to Rob Schlicht and the entire team at DSMA for shepherding us though closing on the sale of our Powersports dealership.  From the initial contact with Rob, it was clear that our transaction would be handled with the utmost of professionalism at every stage.  As a business owner the scariest part of selling your business is determining its value.  No one wants to leave money on the table but it’s hard to be objective in setting a number on something you’ve poured you heart and soul into.  Rob put the support team at DSMA to work and in short order they developed a thorough and fair value for our business, providing us complete transparency of their process.  Thanks to their work our buyer agreed the sales price was on the money and we had a deal!

               Of course, having a deal and closing a deal are miles and months apart.  Rob and team were in constant contact with both sides, setting up Zoom conferences as needed to ensure open communications.  At closing, Rob and Andy Church were on hand for DSMA and assisted in a working though the few inevitable last-minute details.

               Lynn and I could not have asked for a better partner in the sale of our dealership.  Thanks again to Rob, Andy, and the whole DSMA Team for making our transaction as smooth and seamless as possible.
