After 80 years and three generations in the auto retail business, we embarked on the sale of our dealership with the goal of finding the right buyer. After careful evaluation, we chose Kerrigan Advisors to guide us in the sale process. We knew this would be a challenging transaction, given our downtown metro location and a difficult, expensive real estate challenge to be solved. Erin Kerrigan and her team were fabulous in leading the process to a successful conclusion.

Kerrigan Advisors was instrumental in positioning our dealership group for maximum return on our investment.

Having them as my partner gave me the confidence to move forward with the sale.

When I decided to sell my Mercedes-Benz Dealership in Canada, I knew I needed help from a professional, well connected advisor. I wanted an advisor who could expose my business to qualified purchasers in both Canada and the United States. Kerrigan Advisors is “The Authority” on dealership values, works only for sellers, and has access to all of the major private and public automotive groups.

Erin Kerrigan provided me with a highly professional, effective and dignified sale process. From presentation, to analyzing multiple offers from both sides of the border, to closing, Erin protected my interests and advised me through what could have been a very stressful process. We sold to a purchaser that was the right fit for my employees and my family. I heartily recommend Kerrigan Advisors if you are considering a sale of your dealership, particularly if you expect and appreciate first rate professional advice and excellent value, with a high degree of confidentiality.

Erin and Ryan Kerrigan have positioned their company, Kerrigan Advisors, as the premier dealership buy/sell authority in the country. With that in mind the Texas Automobile Dealers Association requested their participation as an industry keynote speaker at our 100th Anniversary Convention in April 2016. Erin Kerrigan’s presentation was the highlight of the general session with her deep dive into the value of today’s franchised dealerships and the future outlook for dealership buy sells.

No firm has more knowledge of the marketplace for dealerships and the data upon which both buyers and sellers can make informed decisions. Every major automotive forum in the country has asked Erin and Ryan to present at their events and Kerrigan Advisors industry analyses, including The Blue Sky Report®, have become a standard for the industry. With the investment dollars that are at stake and the unique dynamics of the dealership marketplace, the industry is fortunate to have a company like Kerrigan advisors that can provide current, expert consultation for those looking to buy or sell franchised new car and truck dealerships.
