Testimonials

“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. ”

Greg Zagar

Painesville, OH

“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.”

“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.”
