We had a great experience working with Brad, very professional and always put our best interests first. Extremely knowledgeable and always made himself available for any questions or concerns that we had. Not only do I recommend them but we would certainly use them again in the future.

I had the pleasure working with Brad selling my 60 year old family restaurant this year. Kind of a big step for me, but Brad was there walking me the many phases of the sale and still keeps in touch thru out the transition. Very helpful, professional and I would recommend him and use him again in a minute!

I worked with Brad Ruth for my first business acquisition, and let me tell you, it was awesome! Working with him felt like a breeze. Not only did I get an amazing broker, but I also gained a friend I can count on. Kudos to Brad!

Brad, Thank you for the business valuation and for the great advice on the sale of my landscape business to my manager. I discovered that selling a business takes expertise in areas that were new to me. Brads help was invaluable.
Greg Dyer
Excellent in every way. Brad was timely, thorough, knowledgeable, helpful, and reasonable. He knows the market, the banks, and the other professionals that are needed to complete a transaction. I sold my business using him and I highly recommend Brad Ruth.

Brad helped make a stressful time a smooth transition, by working with both the seller and myself, to get a deal in place and the business transferred without having to close during this process. I couldn't be more pleased with Brad's help on this business purchase!

I tried two other brokers to sell my restaurant, and neither were successful. I decided to give Brad a chance, but I wasn't optimistic. Not only did he sell my restaurant, he did it during a pandemic! He answered questions morning or night, 7 days a week. He was there every step of the way, instilling a sense of professionalism and sometimes humor to make the process less stressful. Definitely recommended.

If I could award 6 stars out of five I would. For several years, I tried to sell my business on my own. After numerous inquiries into my business without any results I enlisted the services of GLBA Inc. Mr. Ruth vetted potential buyers and provided his expert guidance to me (the seller) and the buyer to eliminate as many obstacles as possible, providing a checklist of recommended tasks to perform. He was forthright as to what the business was worth based on the current economy and what the market would bear. While guiding both parties with a high degree of professionalism, he was able to interject humor, when appropriate, to keep a degree of lightness, and peace of mind. Thank you, Brad, for making this transaction easier than I expected.

“Selling a business can be a roller coaster of emotions and events. When I decided to list our HVAC business for sale, Brad was best suited to bring the highest offer. His experience and professionalism brought potential buyers whom I surely never would have found on my own. Brad was available and with me the whole way as we had delays for buyer financing, COVID-19 and other reasons. Brad was supportive and remained level-headed and steady as we negotiated the details of the sale. Everything was kept confidential from employees, vendors and customers. Many thanks to you, Brad! Anyone considering selling their business should seriously consider having Brad Ruth as your broker. I highly recommend him and Great Lakes Business Advisors.

Jason is a first class business broker. He and his team are insightful, full of integrity and know how to get the deal done. We highly recommend Jason if you are looking to sell your business for top dollar!
Brad Ruth
Brad helped me sell my company, during a recession, during COVID-19, and during an especially difficult time for business financing. He was a broker, mentor, coach, therapist, and friend through a process that can be quite trying and emotional at times. He is a true professional who understands what it’s like to build, manage and sell a company. I would recommend him to anyone looking for help navigating a very intense and intricate process. You cannot find a better advocate for what you've built.
