IRVINE, Calif., March 4, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Performance Brokerage Services, North America largest volume dealer brokerage company, is pleased to announce the sale of Four Corners Harley-Davidson and Four Corners Powersports in Farmington, New Mexico from Tom McCreery and Gary Almond for Joe Washburn and Pete Tabor.
Four Corners Harley-Davidson and Four Corners Powersports were established as a franchise in 1963 as Desert Sports. It was acquired by Tom McCreery and Gary Almond in 2002. Recognizing that the dealership was not reaching its full potential, Tom and Gary moved the dealership to a newly built facility on Main Street. The location has a state-of-the-art service department with capable Dyno tuning and one of the largest showrooms in the state. The dealership also offers Polaris in addition to Harley-Davidson, allowing it to serve both on-road and off-road enthusiasts.
The dealership’s impressive growth is a testament to Tom and Gary’s commitment to their customers. They were passionate about customer service and making sure their fellow riders had the best experience when they visited the dealership. This passion and commitment also carried over to the staff, who were always ready to go the extra mile for their customers.
Following the sale, McCreery said, “The Performance Brokerage Services team has developed an excellent network of business contacts and service providers including lawyers, appraisers and accountants. Four Corners Harley-Davidson and Four Corners Powersports were the second dealer George Chaconas sold for me. George and his partner, Courtney Bernhard, did a great job. They identified four very interested and qualified buyers. While two letters of intent were submitted, we finally negotiated with the buyer who submitted the best offer. All transactions have issues, but when we encountered them, George and his team used their business network, expertise and experience to help us resolve them. We greatly appreciate their help and look forward to retirement.”
Over the past 5 years, Performance Brokerage Services has advised the sale of over 250 dealerships, making it the largest dealership brokerage firm in North America. In 2021, the company completed over 72 transactions, marking a record year. George C. Chaconasexclusive advisor on this transaction and head of the Harley-Davidson and Powersports National Division for Performance Brokerage Services, said, “I recently had the pleasure of working with Tom McCreery sell his Harley-Davidson dealership to Salem, Oregon. I am very pleased to announce the sale of his latest store, Four Corners Harley-Davidson and Four Corners Powersports to Farmington, New Mexico. It was a great honor to help Tom and his business partner, Gary Almond, are retiring after long and successful careers as Harley-Davidson and Metric dealerships, and are entering the next chapter of their lives. I am grateful to have helped the new owners, Joe Washburn and Pete Taborexpand beyond their Fun Center locations to Coloradoin New Mexico. This was a very exciting and strategic acquisition as Joe and Pete have always wanted to be Harley-Davidson dealerships. I wish everyone much success moving forward and am grateful to have had the opportunity to be of service.”
In 2015, two former telecommunications professionals Denver, Colorado, Joe Washburn and Peter Tabor, decided to buy Fun Center Cycles, a powersports dealership selling motorcycles, dirt bikes and personal watercraft. No strangers to the industry, Joe and Pete have spent weekends competing in on-road and off-road events.
Their familiarity with the motorsports community gave them a very good understanding of what their fellow horse riding enthusiasts were looking for and how best to maximize the experience. Their current dealerships display customer photos, trophies, and wrecked bikes that make for great conversations with customers.
With the 2 Fun Center locations currently serving Durango and Cortez, Colorado, the addition of Four Corners Harley-Davidson and Four Corners Powersports is a natural complement. Washburn said:George Chaconas of Performance Brokerage has contacted me several times over the past few years to discuss and consider acquiring our neighboring multiline dealership, including Harley-Davidson. At first we were skeptical as we had never owned a Harley-Davidson dealership before. However, my family has been passionate about and passionate about Harleys for a very long time. George helped us understand the great opportunity to make the strategic move. We are very happy to grow in Farmington, New Mexico as many of our loyal customers reside in the area and we strongly believe that we can take the dealership to the next level. As with any major acquisition, there were many hurdles, and George was instrumental in making it happen. Thank you so much for helping us grow!”
The dealership will remain at its current location at 6520 East Main Street in Farmington, New Mexico.
