Clean Freak Car Wash

Wow!! Thanks so much for all that your team has done for our family these past years. Who would have thought we could have sold a high-end gas facility and introduced a new concept in car washing to the market. The most amazing thing is that your team did it all in one of the worst economic times the United States has ever seen. You guys are awesome!

Thank you for your fine work in getting our car wash sold at a nice price! Monica enjoyed working with you and everything worked out well for us. I particularly appreciate your expertise in reviewing our numbers and arriving at an asking price for us. Jeff, I really enjoyed you and your partners’ presentation in Nashville and that is why we decided to contact you. I would encourage to make more presentations at car wash shows if you have an opportunity. We couldn’t be more pleased with our buyer. He seems to be a smart fellow with lots of very good experience and I think he will learn the business fairly quickly. He and I have found that we share many common values about people and about business so we are getting along well.

Leger Investments, Inc.

I would highly recommend Commercial Plus to anyone seeking to buy or sell a business. When I began the search for a business opportunity, I contacted several brokerage firms both locally and nationally. Commercial Plus was, by far, the most responsive and professional. Although they were the listing agency for the seller, they were unique in providing a dual representation agreement. More importantly, Jeff Pavone took the time to provide me with excellent guidance and support throughout the process.
While we were in the middle of the asset purchase, Jeff became aware of an associated real estate opportunity, and provided me the necessary guidance to complete this transaction as well. Their experience and vast network enables them to find creative solutions and financing options to make deals happen. Whether you are an experienced business owner, or, like me, pursuing business ownership for the first time, you will not find a better team to work with than Commercial Plus!

Ducky’s Express

I have been a multi-site developer and operator in the car wash industry for over 30 years. Four years ago, a partner’s health concern forced me to sell a portion of my portfolio, and during that process, I was introduced to Jeff Pavone of Commercial Plus. I was immediately impressed with Jeff’s knowledge of my industry and his volume of successful deal closings. In a very short period of time, Jeff found the right buyer at a very fair price, and the transaction closed shortly thereafter. I was looking for a team with honesty, integrity, and a proven track record of success, and I found all of that in Jeff.
