Testimonials

CLIENT SUCCESS STORIES

“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.”

COO of EH Automotive Group, previous owners of Heritage Volkswagen of West Atlanta

“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.”
