We are honored to share our collective body of knowledge as a co-author to the NADA Buy-Sell Guide along with Kerrigan Advisors, another well-respected firm in our industry. Buying or selling a dealership is a difficult and complex process. There are dozens of steps along the way and a mistake can cost millions of dollars and possibly result in failure. We hope this guide will help all NADA members to be more successful in their buy-sell transactions. And the timing is ideal since the buy-sell market is highly active today.
