The Worthington Branch was opened in May 2017, so they are still relatively new to the Columbus Ohio area, but they are a team full of heart and personality! They are also one of Ruoff’s largest offices with 12 licensed Loan Officers, 3 of whom are Assistants, 1 Remote Processor and 1 Administrative Assistant!
Being a part of the community is a huge priority to those in the Worthington office! The members of the branch often sponsor and donate their time at a variety of events to support other local businesses in their community. Here are a few of the things they have been up to:
“I am honored to be part of the volunteer staff at Hardin Clinic in the Linden area of Columbus Ohio. I serve in the reception area to greet, check in patients and make sure their medical forms are up to date. It is a Faith-based facility and everyone is invited to visit the prayer room for spiritual care as well.“
– Dawn Nijak, Senior Loan Officer
Michelle Fry and other team members sponsor Build-A-Bike each year. It is CMBA’s most popular event. Volunteers gather into teams and buy one or more bikes to put together as a team while socializing and and participating in a great trivia contest. Then once they are put together, the kids from Boys and Girls Club arrive and they each get a bike and a helmet (donated by one of the mortgage companies) and visit with with the volunteers.
“They are always so excited to have their own brand new bike. It is a very rewarding night and also fun with the trivia competition and being able to join other LO’s to work together to do something good for the kids.”
– Michelle Fry, Senior Loan Officer
The upcoming Build-A-Bike event for this year is on May 7, 2019! More information to come on the CMBA’s website!
The team is also passionate about partnering with other industry partners to do events and educate one another!
We have a weekly Sales Strategy Meeting that encompasses many facets of our sales department and includes speakers from outside sources. This helps us to stay “on top” of an ever-changing environment. Our primary focus is to increase our sales productivity. And ways to effectively communicate and develop relationships with our referral partners. Here are just a couple examples of ways they are networking with others!
This team is a group of fun-loving individuals who truly feel like a family. They strive for an environment where everyone works together 100% to make sure each person is a success. They have mutual respect for one another and learn from their many different experiences and perspectives.
The team has an impressive 150+ years of experience and brings a ton of knowledge and passion to the Columbus area! They were able to help 330 families achieve their homeownership goals in 2018 and look forward to helping even more people this year!
“This is a special group. It is fun to work with a team like this who genuinely care about each other, and what they do for a living. They operate as a unit, work to solve problems, and constantly look for ways to put people in homes. I am looking forward to this year as we are continuing to grow and make Ruoff Home Mortgage a household name here in Columbus."
