I will work hard to help you achieve your homeownership goals.
I started in the mortgage business in 2001 and owned two smaller mortgage companies in Fort Wayne before making the best business decision of my life by joining Ruoff Mortgage in 2014. My family and I live in Southwest Fort Wayne, and I enjoy traveling and golf. I am also a passionate sports fan, following the Dallas Cowboys, the Chicago Cubs, and bleeding Blue and Gold for Notre Dame.
My customer service philosophy is to treat every customer as I would like to be treated and make the home buying experience as stress-free as possible. The purchase of a new home is a major life and financial decision. I strive to make this decision as easy as possible by being honest and trustworthy while offering multiple loan scenarios to make an educated choice. Frequent communication and professional advice are essential, and I gladly offer both to all clients.

Everything was perfect. And I mean that. The loan butler made the application and documentation process very easy and fast. The communication with Doug and Lorissa was fast and friendly and exceeded my expectations, which my husband will tell you doesn’t happen often. We got a clear to close in 7 days. That’s unheard of!! My husband is a realtor and uses Ruoff for most of his transactions and now I see why. I have heard horror stories about people using their bank or credit union, or they use other mortgage companies, and then they don’t get their clear to close in time. Why risk it? Why not use Ruoff and KNOW you are going to be taken care of? We got the final approval for a 10 year loan in 7 days... what, like getting a mortgage approval is hard? We were very pleased with the process and I would recommend Doug and Ruoff to anyone. You guys know what you are doing.Lauren G, happy client
Doug and Lorissa were so amazing. They were very responsive and informative. Everyone always told me how hard it was dealing with mortgage lenders. Doug and his team made it easily and actually quite enjoyable. I can’t imagine a better experience. I will recommend Ruoff Mortgage to anyone I know seeking a mortgage!Dakota I, happy client
Doug and Lorissa were both excellent. They were quick to help us and to follow-up when we needed it. Doug was a true professional and was so helpful. He answered all of our questions and everything was perfect. I really liked the ease of the online portal. This is my 4th home purchase and by far the easiest. We will be sure to use Doug and Ruoff again if we ever need assistance.Alanna O, happy client
I was treated with care and respect as if I was one of the family. I was constantly informed every step of the way and if I needed help they were there.Lisa M, happy client
Doug and his team at the Fort Wayne branch are amazing. I’ve used them twice now and will never use anyone else. They make the process quick, painless, and fun.Brenn B, happy client
Everything seemed to go very smoothly. All my questions were answered right away and sometimes before I even asked.Brandi J, happy client
Doug was recommended to us by our real estate agent and it’s easy to see why. Doug and team went the extra mile for us from the beginning. Always would take calls/texts and if he couldn’t for some reason he would get back with you in a timely manner. Doug made the whole process super easy and explained things to where you actually understood what was going on. I would recommend Doug 100 times over!Nick F, happy client
I love working with Doug and his team. He handled my initial purchase in 2019 and it was a no-brainer to enlist his services again for my re-fi. He was, once again, an absolute pleasure to work with and he and his team are a true asset to Ruoff Mortgage.Noelle C, happy client
Doug was outstanding! He was truly there for me throughout the entire process. I felt like I was the only one he was working with, even though he had multiple clients. He made everything go so smooth. I felt like all I had to do was show up for closing and he did all the dirty work! Outstanding job to Doug and his team!Matthew B, happy client
Everything about our experience was organized, informative, efficient, professional, and relational. Our goals, and needs were respected and we were treated as friends. Doug Carroll and his lending team, namely Lorissa Watson, were exemplary in their attitudes, approaches, and knowledge. We have shared our journey with Ruoff Mortgage with friends, family, and associates. Ruoff, Doug, and his team helped bring our dream to reality. Thank you Doug, Lorissa, and Ruoff!Adam B, happy client
Doug was an amazing communicator. We went to a few different mortgage companies and were turned off because of how hard it was to get ahold of them. Doug and Lorissa were concise, answered all our questions, and made our first home buying experience as easy as it could have been!Caleb S, happy client
Being informed step by step was incredible helped keep my anxiety levels down throughout the process, this was my first time doing something like this and the hard work you guys put into making this happen for me was a breath of fresh air, truly amazing.
