“We would like to acknowledge the work of Mr. François McDonald who put his knowledge and professionalism to the benefit of everyone, from the start of the talks until the conclusion of this important transaction.

“What I particularly liked about Manon is her human and sincere side, she is always able to show empathy and understand our needs.
Very available and always ready to find a solution, she was certainly an important element in the progress of the transaction, a big thank you! ”
Éric Dorval, former owner of Montmagny Mazda
“I highly recommend DSMA and Ms. Manon Messier to support you during the process of buying (or selling) a car dealership. The service offered is professional, courteous and personalized. I was very well supported from the start to the end of the process. Thanks to the team, a business opportunity turned from dream to reality within weeks in my case. Do not hesitate to contact Ms. Messier to make your projects a reality! ”
Francis Fréchette, new owner of Montmagny Mazda
“I met Bill Fields two years ago when he stopped by the store as I was walking out the door
headed for a local business luncheon. He only had time to give me his company brochure and I figured I would never see him again.
Two weeks later he was back at the dealership and this time he introduced himself and how
Dealer Solutions can help a dealer locate buyers for their dealership and maximize its value. I had considered selling for some time but wanted someone to simplify the process and keep me informed the entire time from listing to closing.
Bill said he would be working for me and I have to admit he lived up to his word. Throughout the process from finding prospects to negotiating the sale to working with the lawyers and all the way to closing, Bill was on top of the details and tirelessly working on my behalf.
I am more than glad to recommend Bill Fields if you are thinking of selling your dealership. You won’t find anyone who will work harder or smarter for you.”
Norbie Ronsonet, former owner of Ronsonet Buick-GMC
“Bill Fields and Dealer Solutions Mergers and Acquisitions worked with me on the purchase of my second dealership.
I am more than happy to recommend them for both buyers and sellers. Bill was professional and always available to answer questions and diligently work with both sides to smoothly facilitate the transaction.
All conversations were handled in a confidential and thoughtful manner and he was on top of every detail with purchase agreement.
Bill and DSMA are definitely a combination that I would look forward to working with again on the purchase of my next dealership.”
Tolga Batir, new owner of Ronsonet Buick GMC
We had the pleasure of speaking with Kevin on a few occasions with respect to this opportunity and what other opportunities he and DSMA had in Atlantic. The one thing we found with Kevin was he always stayed in touch because he knew we were interested and understood what we were looking for. He worked every possible angle and dissected the deal in every way that made sense to us and their package was far above others that we have seen. Kevin was never overbearing, pushy or hard to get a hold of and it was a pleasure from start to finish working with him and DSMA and we look forward to the next time, plus the congratulations gift and charity donation from them was a very nice touch.
Scott Toner, new owner of Edmundston Toyota
Kevin visited us numerous times before we signed on the dotted line and from day 1, he was up front and did not try and win us over by over promising and telling us what we wanted to hear. He was very straight forward in his process and communicated realistic timelines that he and DSMA stuck to. We wish our deal could have been completed overnight but that was not from a lack of effort on Kevin’s part. It was nice to see how Kevin and DSMA as a team worked together to get this done for us and for that we are grateful. We would recommend Kevin and DSMA to any dealer in Atlantic if they are thinking of selling, it was a pleasure.
Charles Albert, former owner of Edmundston Toyota
“We worked with Manon Messier and, in our automotive world, we would all like to have salespeople of her caliber, she does not let go and she is always smiling. She always takes the time to advise us well and her hours are never counted. For us, it was a very pleasant transaction! Thank you! ”
Guy Duplessis and Benoît Duplessis, former owners of Lallier Ste-Foy
“I really appreciated Manon’s human qualities in the transaction. She was able to detect that we were interested in this opportunity, set up an atmosphere where exchanges were respectful between all stakeholders and adapted to the different personalities of buyers and sellers. She was available at all times and the negotiations were always reasonable, never unreasonable. In short, it was a model transaction, one of the most pleasant for our Group! ”
Olivier Fleury, VP Finance of the Ouellet Automobile Group, new owners
“We would like to thank DSMA and in particular Jeff Renaud for handling the sale of our Strathmore Chrysler location. Jeff and the rest of the DSMA team were professional, efficient and worked very effectively on our behalf. The transaction was delayed due to the COVID outbreak, but Jeff handled the interruption very smoothly and was able to bring things back together nicely. DSMA’s support and industry knowledge was outstanding. I would highly recommend DSMA to anyone looking at either selling or buying a dealership.”
Arthur Fast, Chief Financial Officer, Murray Auto Group, former owners of Murray Chrysler Strathmore Sales
” Hello François,
It was a fairly long process between the initial mandate you were given and the closing of the transaction. Of course, the delays are strictly due to the manufacturer’s acceptance period and the famous Covid-19 pandemic.
We recognize the excellent work done by you and your company, for the preparation of the prospectus, the search for potential buyers and the support throughout the negotiation and transaction.
We will be happy to recommend your services, just as you were recommended to us, to anyone who needs such support.
The relationship between buyer and seller cannot be better than it currently is.
Thank you for your support. ”
Jean Dion, former owner of Accès Toyota
