“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.”

” After 45 years in the automotive business and 34 years as an owner of Velde Cadillac Buick GMC, I decided it was time to retire the business and let the legacy continue. 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.”

Rory Griggs, Former Owner of Velde Cadillac Buick GMC

DSMA and Jennifer Rafael took the time to listen to our growth strategy and expansion goals within our current market.  Jennifer helped us understand how this opportunity was a perfect fit for our growing group. We want to thank DSMA and Jennifer for their professional, trusting relationship and attention to detail that has brought this transaction to a close. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with DSMA in the near future.”
