      A Seamless Journey with DSMA: Volkswagen North Bay Acquisition

      I have known Lev at DSMA for many years. He is the foremost M&A consultant for the auto space in Northern Ontario; so I knew when it came time to acquire a dealership, he was the guy to call.

      I am writing to express my utmost satisfaction and gratitude for the exceptional service provided by DSMA during the recent acquisition of Volkswagen North Bay. The entire experience was nothing short of fantastic, and I am truly impressed with the professionalism, efficiency, and expertise demonstrated by the entire DSMA team.

      From the initial stages of negotiation to the finalization of the deal, DSMA exhibited a level of commitment and diligence that exceeded our expectations. The team’s ability to navigate the complexities of the acquisition process ensured a smooth transition, and their attention to detail was truly commendable.

      What stood out the most was the seamless coordination among DSMA team members. Every individual played a crucial role, and their collaborative efforts made the entire process efficient and stress-free. The expertise demonstrated in financial analysis, legal matters, and strategic planning showcased the depth of knowledge within the DSMA team.

      Working with Wendy and Jasmine on regular updates and clear explanations of each step in the process provided us with the confidence that we were in capable hands. The team’s responsiveness to our inquiries further reinforced the trust we had placed in DSMA.

      I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to each member of the DSMA team involved in the Volkswagen North Bay acquisition. Your professionalism, dedication, and commitment to excellence have undoubtedly set a new standard in our business dealings. Lev and the team at DSMA have not only facilitated a successful acquisition but has also left a lasting positive impression with us; we look forward to working further with Lev and the team.

      In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Lev and the team at DSMA to any Dealer seeking a reliable and proficient partner in business acquisitions. Thank you once again for the outstanding service and for making this acquisition a fantastic experience.
