  • Del was absolutely incredible to work with. This was my 2nd home purchase, but with a 10 year difference between, I was shocked how much easier this process was compared to my first. Del was with me every step of the way, from adjusting my pre approval letter quickly when I spontaneously upped my budget and turned around with an offer, to talking me through every document I signed, I had him as my guide. I never felt pressured or influenced, but rather educated and guided. It is with my highest recommendation to partner with Del and/or anyone at Ruoff mortgage for your purchasing needs!

  • Del and the Ruoff team exceeded my expectations. They made the home loan application process as smooth as possible. As a first time home buy I had numerous questions in regards to my loan and Del Lekan, as well as Jimmy DeMatteis, took the time to answer all of them. They always worked around my schedule and were extremely thorough and knowledgeable in all areas. I couldnt have asked for a better team. I would most definitely recommend Del and his team to others. I look forward to working with them in the future.

  • Del and Jimmy were extremely kind hearted and excellent to work with. My husband and I knew it would be a difficult road for our mortgage due to our credit situation, but we never felt that from these guys. They just explained what they needed us to do and what they would do to get things accomplished. We had our mortgage in 30 days. I called Del Lekan my Mortgage Ambassador.
