FORT WAYNE, IN (May 18, 2021) – Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) announced the winners of its Home Possible RISE Awards®. The annual program, RISE (Recognizing Individuals for Sustained Excellence), salutes Freddie Mac’s top clients across multiple categories for excellence with the Home Possible® mortgage – Freddie Mac’s affordable lending solution for very low- to low-income homebuyers.

Ruoff Mortgage earned the Home Possible RISE Award in the Greatest Volume category.

“It is truly an honor to have received the prestigious Home Possible RISE Award for our work to help people enjoy the benefits of homeownership,” said Mark Music, Ruoff President & CEO. “It is a joy to see the smile on a homeowner’s face when they learn that their home awaits their arrival. Changing a family’s future by creating sustainable homeownership is our focus.”

In 2020, Ruoff Mortgage made homeownership possible for more than 480 families in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Illinois through the Home Possible mortgage.

The Home Possible RISE Awards combined volume from national Home Possible and Home Possible Advantage mortgage options.
