Dave Cantin and Brian Brown were consummate professionals throughout the entire process. This was our first buy/sell and initially we were looking to add a small store. When it was all said and done, not only did DCG successfully help us execute that goal, but we ended up selling our big store. The team came to the table with an offer we just couldn’t refuse. There were a lot of moving parts in both transactions and at some points the deals seemed like they were going to fall apart. I can say with the upmost confidence that without DCG at the helm, neither deal would have been executed. We are now a couple of months post closing and they are still there to help with a few issues that have arisen. These were the largest transactions our family ever took part in and we couldn’t be happier that we chose DCG as partners in the transactions.

As the founder and former CEO of American Auction Group (now known as XLerate Group) I have known George Pero for over seven years. In 2012 my company had the pleasure of acquiring all of George’s auctions (Auctions in Motion). The addition of George’s auctions certainly increased my company’s national footprint but equally as important this acquisition enabled us to bring one of our industry’s most creative and successful serial entrepreneurs on to our senior management team.George Pero’s business successes were, and continue to be, a direct result of his visionary approach and passionate dedication to developing and executing new methodologies in an industry that hasn’t always embraced change. That combined with his fine tuned leadership, problem solving and decision making skills positioned George to excel in the area of mergers and acquisitions on our behalf. I miss working with George Pero for he has always brought an air of inspiring excitement and energy to everything he does.

If you thought Dave was a monster Hyundai dealer, let him sell your store. He doesn’t sell, he finds the right candidate. Dave is involved in every facet of the deal. He manages the relationship and the time table, sets the expectations and closes the deal. Thank you Dave Cantin!
