“I contacted Dave Cantin after I tried 2 other brokers to sell my dealership with no success. Dave assured me that he has the network to get my dealership sold. Within 30 days Dave had me in contract with the right buyer. From beginning to end,  hands down, Dave is  one of the best brokers you can work with. I would not hesitate in recommending Dave Cantin to any dealer that wants to sell or buy a dealership. He works extremely hard in getting you top dollar if your selling. BEST IN THE BUSINESS!

“I can’t thank Dave enough for  finding us the new dealership in Freehold that we closed on in August of 2017. He has an amazing work ethic and followed up on all the details, dates and important contractual issues. Dealing with Dave was a pleasure and I am sure that this isn’t the last deal that we will do. Dave went out of his way to help with issues that arose after closing –  something that I truly appreciate!”

“Dave Cantin was truly the only reason that I was able to complete the transaction on our new dealership.  He was able to help both the seller and I find common ground on some contentious issues.  When it seemed that the deal wouldn’t actually happen, he kept us moving forward.  I would not think of doing another buy/sell without calling Dave first.”

“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!”

“I was recently represented by Dave Cantin in selling two franchised dealerships. From engagement to closing, my transactions were handled with the utmost confidentiality and professionalism. Dave’s business acumen combined with his vast experience as a former operator were invaluable. Dave Cantin was instrumental in structuring and negotiating every facet of the transactions, resulting in obtaining more net proceeds for me than anyone else possibly could have, and frankly, more than I expected. I do not hesitate to recommend Dave Cantin to any dealer principal interested in being represented by “the best in the business” and achieving top dollar!”

“I first began working with Dave Cantin in 2015. He impressed me from day one with his responsiveness and professionalism. Dave is transparent, straightforward and brings a wealth of automobile industry knowledge that is second to none. From the beginning to the end of my first deal brokered by Dave, he stuck with me through every step of the process. After such a positive experience, I sought out Dave again for two more deals, which have been very successful. The great thing about Dave is that he doesn’t disappear after the deal is closed. I can share my thoughts and ideas and he’s always there to help me take my business to the next level.”

I had the opportunity of meeting Dave on a personal level and from our first meeting, to getting to know him, it’s easy to see his sensibility. He cares deeply and it translates into his business, his community awareness, and to why he’s successful. It’s great to call him a friend.”
