“John Chisholm worked tirelessly on my behalf to sell our dealership. He was available night and day, seven days a week, always working to advance the sale. The sale of our dealership was particularly complicated. John never gave up, never lost his enthusiasm. Not once did he doubt that our transaction would close. Not once did he give me any reason to second-guess his integrity. I have met many brokers over the course of decades in this business. John is the only one I would wholeheartedly recommend to a friend.”

“I have known Lev for a number of years. When Lev approached me regarding Jim Wilson Chevrolet and my possible interest in selling; I knew he had a serious buyer. DSMA and their team completed an extremely thorough valuation of my dealership and presented me with the opportunity to open discussions with a potential purchaser. I had three specific demands that I laid out previously:

  1. A qualified purchaser ( financially and approvability)
  2. Confidentiality
  3. Ease of transaction.

Lev and DSMA came through and brought me a very qualified purchaser; and the team at Canada One were fantastic to work with. DSMA has instituted a process and people; specifically, Wendy Durward to simplify the transaction and assist in the process. Once the LOI was completed, it allow for a smooth transaction and closing. Most impressive to me was the fact that DSMA made a promise of confidentiality and truly kept it.

I want to thank everyone who has assisted in the sale of my dealership; I want to thank Pat Priestner and his team and thank Lev and Farid and the team at DSMA for coming through when they said they would.”

When we met with DSMA and  Jennifer Rafael, I knew we would be in good hands. Jennifer Rafael understood our request and provided the M & A  knowledge during the process and demonstrated professionalism and confidentiality.  Selling a dealership can be pretty daunting with some potential bumps along the way, but the level of guidance, support and compassion from Jennifer & DMSA was greatly appreciated and extremely effective during this emotional journey. I would highly recommend DSMA & Jennifer Rafael if you are thinking of buying or selling your biggest assets.”

“Back in Late 2020 we reached out to Kevin and asked that he could find us a dealership close to our existing stores. Soon after that meeting, he found a store in our area that was actually listed by another broker. This being our first dealer to dealer purchase we were delighted to have Kevin with us every step of the way. Kevin and DSMA took the asking price from the broker, completed a full market value analysis on the brand and location and negotiated a fair price on our behalf. It was their experience, market knowledge and team approach that justified our purchase price, and from that experience we were very comfortable in paying the right price. There were many bumps along the road and every time we hit a bump, Kevin and DSMA were quick to a resolution and having an in-house counsel for support, didn’t hurt either. We are so grateful for the weekly meetings, guidance and discussions during this transaction; without this support we would have never reached the finish line. I highly recommend Kevin Leslie and DSMA if you are thinking of selling, I know I will if that day ever comes because of the treatment we received on the buyers’ side as clients.

I would recommend Kevin and his team to ANYBODY that is looking for an opportunity. He has your back every step of the way and he answers phone calls at all hours. “

Do you really want to sell your business? Do you want to maximize your return? Do you want the people within your organization that have made you successful to be taken care of after a sale?  These questions may sound rather redundant if you have made the decision to sell, either for retirement or other entrepreneurial pursuits. As my decision to retire was starting to take shape, I was extremely lucky to have been introduced to the team that would allow me to achieve my goals.

I met Lev Kowalsky several years ago and he made a real impression on me during a brief conversation at a social event, so when it came time, 2 years ago, to go to market, I contacted him and the DSMA Team. From the outset, they were extremely professional and knowledgeable, very helpful and totally involved, from the creation of the CIM, the marketing prospectus, to developing a list of potential, qualified buyers, through the due diligence process and finally, to get the transaction to the closing phase.

As a client, I viewed the organization as a team of specialists.

  • CIM and Due Diligence – a comprehensive team of experts, knowledgeable in accounting, legal and marketing
  • Market Knowledge – This is Lev’s speciality. Lev is, similarly to a Real Estate Listing agent, a selling agent. He created a very thorough list of qualified potential purchasers and worked diligently throughout the entire selling process to secure a favourable LOI.
  • Finally, the closing of the transaction is the most important phase, and this is where the DSMA team excelled. Headed by Wendy Durward, DSMA has a dedicated team of experts who focus fully on the closing process to ensure a smooth road to get the seller across the finish line as a winner.

Over a period of two years, I got to form a great relationship with the DSMA team, between their expertise and the corporate reaction time in providing creative solutions throughout the process proved to me that, all in all, I made the right decision.

In closing, on behalf of myself, my family and my partners, I would like to thank the entire team at DSMA for their help in allowing us to realize our retirement strategy and our financial goals. I would strongly suggest that, if you are in the market to sell, you allow DSMA the opportunity to provide you with their plan of action and expert solutions. If anyone wishes to contact me to discuss this subject, please feel free to do so, Lev can provide you my coordinates.

It is not only a question of price, but also and above all, finding the best business partner for our employees. We are convinced that Mr. Jean-Luc Desjardins is the one who will ensure the continuity and progress of the company. Thank you to Manon, DSMA and François McDonald, for your support.”

“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.”

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.

“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.”

” 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. ”

“After making the decision to sell our dealership, Lexus Laval, my partner Louis-Carl Dagenais and I mandated François McDonald and DSMA to assist us.

The quality of service from François and his team is impeccable. They expertly assisted us at all stages of a fairly complex sale, while respecting our prerequisites. The transaction was completed in a confidential and professional manner, through delays caused by the challenges associated with the pandemic.

We recommend François McDonald and DSMA without hesitation for any sale/purchase transaction of a car dealership.”

“My Father’s advice prior to his death was the reason why I decided to sell our family GM Dealership; be sure to sell while you’re young and healthy enough to enjoy the fruits of your years of hard work. And so after 40 years in the retail automotive industry I welcomed the opportunity to work with Wendy Durward of DSMA for potential buyers.

My experience with DSMA and the process actually demonstrated the pros and cons when working with potential buyers.  The first offer unfortunately was not ideal – although generous in purchase price, the individual proved difficult to deal with and would not be a good fit for the community and employees. When I was prepared to look at other buyers, 18 months later, Wendy listened to and understood how important it was for me, that the new owner would continue to support the community, maintain the dealership name to honour my Father, Mike Fair’s legacy, and keep the employees who were integral to the dealership’s success over the years – Wendy respected all of these when presenting a list of interested parties.  She also maintained constant communication with me, answered any of my questions and addressed any concerns I had and also understood the emotional toll such a big decision takes on the seller. Overall, it was a relatively smooth process once I agreed to an LOI.

Wendy was there, on the day the dealership officially was handed over to Mrs. Charlene Brunet of The Butler Organization, to celebrate with Charlene and myself. I enjoyed working with Charlene and her team, and I’m still a member of the team at Mike Fair’s as their Community Ambassador.

If anyone is considering selling their dealership, I would certainly recommend using the services of DSMA.”

“I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Rick Kingdon and DSMA.  As a second-generation, single-point, family-owned and -operated business, we didn’t have any experience in selling our business to an outside buyer.  Rick and his team at DSMA helped us navigate the entire process from valuation and marketing our dealership to providing a list of prospective purchasers so we could find a great fit for taking over the business we worked so hard to build.  Their knowledge and experience in negotiating made coming to agreement on a final sale price with the purchaser a seamless process.  We are very happy with the complete transaction with Braeden Mueller and the Knight Automotive Group and extend our sincere thanks to Rick Kingdon and DSMA for their role in making it happen.”

“I would like to recommend Bill Fields and Dealer Solutions Mergers and Acquisitions based on their expertise and assistance in the sale of our dealership.  We had tried to market the dealership ourselves for quite a while but didn’t have the extensive list of buyers that Bill brought with him.
Once we listed with DSMA, we soon had a signed LOI and, even when that one fell through, Bill quickly found a new buyer and we were able to conclude a successful sale.
Throughout the entire process, Bill was actively involved and kept the transaction on track and moving forward.  He was always positive, enthusiastic and professional and a pleasure to do business with.
I highly recommend Bill Fields and DSMA for anyone looking to sell or buy a dealership.”

“I would like to say that thanks to the exceptional work of Mrs. Manon Messier of DSMA, I sold my Honda dealership. Manon got involved from start to finish from the set up of the presentation, the search for buyers and finally, the negotiations.

I can say that I was more than satisfied with each step of the transaction.

In summary, if you ever plan to buy or sell a concession, do not hesitate to use Manon’s services, she will be more than 100% there for you! ”
