True to her entrepreneurial nature, Ruba co-managed and operated a small business in Minneapolis alongside her husband for almost 5 years, where she capitalized on her multilingual skills to uncover the needs of an increasingly ethnic customer base. Ruba ran the day to day operations of the business and introduced new product lines and services, thereby becoming the store of choice for her customers. The diversification of the product offerings resulted in a sizable increase in sales and the business’ bottom line. Ruba and her husband sold their business at a formidable profit.

Ruba and Ahmed were amazing. Excellent communication through the entire process. My business sold fast and no unexpected surprises. It went as smooth as I could hope for. One of the best business dealings I’ve ever had.

Dear Ruba and Ahmed –

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you both!! As you know – it was love at first sight 🙂 It has been my pleasure to have you in my corner, representing me. In fact, the whole staff at Sunbelt has been nothing short of spectacular. Thank you for “our” experience!



Selling your business can be very emotional and stressful. Ruba and Ahmed make the process as easy and smooth as possible. They were there for me every step of the way, offering support and answering questions in a quick and timely manner. I can’t thank them enough for helping sell my first business. They found a buyer less than a week after I listed my business. They represented both myself and the buyer in a fair manner. I have so much love and respect for them and Sunbelt! Thank you!

Ruba and Ahmed are the business services dream team! They made every step in the process of acquiring a company stress free, straight forward, and simple.

Ruba is an absolute joy to work with and her expert knowledge was so appreciated during the sale. She was available at any hour day or night to answer our questions and address any concerns, she provided useful insights, and was a steady hand guiding us all to success.

Her dynamic with Ahmed, who was a delight as well, really showcases the confidence and trust the two have for each other. As a client I appreciated knowing that the two of them had everything covered.

If you’re looking to buy or sell a business there is no one I have more faith in than these two rockstars.

I don’t know if I can say enough about what a pleasure it was to work with Ruba and Ahmed from Sunbelt. I had NO idea what it took to sell a business, but it turns out I didn’t have to know that much. Ruba and Ahmed had all of the knowledge I’d need. All I did was send them the reports that they requested, and they took it from there. When we met with them after they had done the valuation on our business Ahmed asked us to write down what we thought our business was worth. My husband and I did that, and were very pleasantly surprised to find that we were way off in our estimation. Honestly, the whole “selling our business” experience was so painless, and we credit our brokers for that. We knew the whole time that they were on our side, and working for us. We felt confident that we were in good hands. And, now we consider them to be our friends.

As a woman entrepreneur and business owner, it was so refreshing to work with Ruba and Ahmed. Ruba’s professionalism, her easy laugh, and her synergy with Ahmed made the process of purchasing a business entirely worry free. On top of that, her encyclopedic knowledge of the ins and outs of these types of complicated transactions left me confident that no aspect was being over looked and that nothing was left to chance.

Ruba was so kind and considerate, always making sure that I had every piece of information that I needed, clarifying anything that I had questions on, and addressing any of my concerns right away. She kept track of all the moving parts and knew where we were in the process every step of the way. I cannot speak highly enough about her and what a pleasure it was to have her at the helm of this sale.

And of course, throughout it all, Ahmed was right there with her to provide additional insight, specialized information, and a fresh perspective. The two of them are a stellar combination and the balance they have while working together is so admirable. I knew that with the two of them handling the logistics, there was nothing that could come up that wouldn’t be handled perfectly.

No matter who you are, or what type of business you are buying or selling, these are the two people that you want to facilitate. Bar none.

Thank you Ruba and Ahmed, I appreciate everything you do

Ruba and Ahmed were truly great to work with. I knew absolutely nothing about selling a business, and they took the reins and guided me the entire way. I could contact them at any hour, which was a great comfort. They exceeded my expectations and sold my business over asking price. Could not have been more pleased!

Craig Mueller

Five Stars! Ruba and Ahmed are fantastic. I was ready to retire but was not sure whether or how I could sell my small business. In the initial meeting they provided a path forward that I could not have seen without them. They guided me through every step of the process from establishing a good selling price to coordinating the closing. I was very comforted by the fact they represented me each step of the way.

Using the Sunbelt marketing system, they quickly found many interested buyers. Their experience in vetting buyers, coordinating informational meetings, setting up a document room, keeping the process moving, and completing the seamlessly endless tasks that this process requires was instrumental to the sales success. Thank you, Ruba & Ahmed!

Ruba and Ahmed are each so professional, experienced, personable, and fun. I highly recommend them if you are considering selling your business.
