Head inside the nearby car and go to the marked yellow location.

Once at the location, head inside by climbing over the gate.

There will be a gardener to your left that you must stealthily take out if you want to get the Gold Medal for this mission.

You will have to proceed inside the house without alerting any of its residents. To the right side of the garden is a white car that you can get on top off to reach the second floor of the house that has an open window.

Head to the garage on the first floor while avoiding the line of sight of the people around you. While it is easy as everyone is preoccupied, it is better to not test your luck and head directly into the garage just directly below the staircase.

Once you get inside the car, the exit gates will automatically open for you and you will have to bring the car back to Simeon’s dealership. On the way there, it’ll be revealed that Michael was hiding in the back seat of the car this entire time.

The objective will not change, Michael will still ask you to head to Simeon’s dealership. Once you arrive at the dealership, Michael will force you to crash through the front door of Simeon’s dealership with the car.

Do so and Michael will pay Franklin for his help before he leaves.

You will now control Michael and engage in a fist fight with Simeon. Repeatedly punch him to stunlock him and allow him no chance to counterattack. Defeating him without any damage is a requisite for the Gold Medal.

Finishing this entire section under 5 minutes is also a Gold Medal objective. If you didn’t get it this time around, you can just repeat the mission and skip the cutscenes.

After a cutscene with a violent exchange from Michael to Simeon, the mission will end.
