"Red hot" is how George Karolis describes the current dealership buy-sell market.
Karolis is president of Presidio Group, an investment banking and dealership advisory firm in San Francisco, which has sold 37 dealerships this year worth more than $2 billion.
"We expect to exceed that number of dealerships-sold pace next year," he said. "It's just on fire. It's busier than we've ever seen," he said of the merger and acquisition market.
