Our mission is to guide homebuyers and homeowners at every step with experience and commitment so they can achieve their goals and move into their homes with confidence.
We provide a best-in-class residential mortgage experience for our customers and an enriching and fulfilling culture for our employees through transparency, respect, and the highest ethical standards.
Our leadership team serves as an example for our company’s core values and culture. Everyday, they inspire and encourage the whole Ruoff family to better ourselves and our communities.
We’ve created custom, industry-leading software and mobile apps for our customers to apply for, follow, and close on their loans. Get up-to-the-minute updates and securely upload and sign documents.
Our unique mortgage loan process remains simple and stress free for our customers. We promise quick turn times with a 17 day average from application to close.
Creating confident, valued borrowers is a part of Ruoff’s culture. By explaining the process, answering questions, and freely sharing knowledge, we hope to encourage lifelong customers.
Even though we help a lot of homeowners, we prioritize making sure each and every customer is treated like an individual and not a number. We make real connections with real people.
In 1984, David Ruoff decided there was a better way to meet the financial needs of our community. With 25 years of experience in the mortgage industry, the Dave Ruoff Mortgage Co. was started in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The name was later changed to Ruoff Mortgage.
Ruoff is proud to be a family-owned business. In 2007, David's son-in-law, Mark Music, joined the business as the new president. Upon David's retirement in 2012, Mark took over as president and CEO.
Ruoff Mortgage is ranked as the number one mortgage lender in Indiana and has become one of the fastest-growing companies in the country. We’ve grown from a single location in northeast Indiana to more than 1050 employees, with 63 branches in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, and Florida. While our corporate headquarters remains in Fort Wayne, Ruoff now reaches homebuyers nationwide with its online division.
Even with its tremendous growth, we are most proud of the business and community partnerships we've formed in our 38+ years in business. We continue to make the dream of homeownership a reality and welcome thousands of happy homebuyers into the Ruoff family.
