FORT WAYNE, IN (August 15, 2018) -- It’s pretty unusual for a company that has been around for nearly 35 years to be considered one of America’s fastest growing companies. What’s even more unusual is to have a company appear on the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies in America list for six years in a row. But business as usual is not what Ruoff Home Mortgage is about…and it’s not how they have operated over the past 10 years since president and CEO, Mark Music, took over the helm.

On August 15, Ruoff Home Mortgage, with nearly 50 branch offices across the Midwest and licensed to originate in 46 states, was recognized with the prestigious ranking…this year coming in at #1641 in the nation. They are also ranked #15 in the Top Indiana Companies. On this year’s list, fewer than 6% of the companies have been ranked six times or more. Considering there are more than six million private companies in the U.S., companies that appear on the top 5,000 list for even one year are in an elite group.

“Being recognized on a national level, with such a prestigious honor as this, enforces the significant momentum that Ruoff Home Mortgage has been focused on,” said Music. “It’s a true testament to the talent and dedication of our team who work so hard on being second-to-none.”

Under Music’s vision and leadership, Ruoff Home Mortgage has grown exponentially (with 2017 revenue at $90.4 million) by adapting and getting ahead of the evolving industry, embracing technology, committing to a higher standard of customer satisfaction, and recruiting and retaining a talented workforce. All the while maintaining (and quite frankly, increasing) their standard of excellence. The company has a staggering 98.8% customer satisfaction rating, as rated by third-party provider Customerville Inc. They have ranked in the Top 100 mortgage companies in the country by industry-recognized groups.

To stay ahead of competition, Ruoff Home Mortgage has developed proprietary software to enhance the mortgage process experience for their customers, has expanded their business footprint from solely brick-and-mortar locations in the Midwest to a national direct-to-consumer presence, branched out to the affinity and relocation market, and more recently, is in the final stages of acquiring a bank, which will open up a whole new opportunity for financial services to their customers. They’ve also accelerated their marketing efforts to be a household name by sponsoring the winning car of the 101st Running of the Indianapolis 500 and taking on naming rights of the Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center, a 25,000 seat Live Nation amphitheater outside of Indianapolis.

As a 6th time honoree, Ruoff Home Mortgage is part of the Inc. 5000 Honor Roll, an elite group of private companies ranked on the nation’s fastest-growing companies list more than 5 years in a row. The list represents the most comprehensive look at America’s independent entrepreneurs.
