Let me help you get pre-approved today!

I am dedicated to helping my clients successfully navigate the home buying process. Since no two applications are alike, I like to take the time to work with the applicant to find the loan product that will best suit their needs. I especially enjoy working with first time home buyers. I love taking the time to sit down with them and go over the mortgage process and to make sure that not only are their questions answered but that they are totally comfortable with the process. This helps to take a lot of stress out of the whole home buying experience.

When I am not doing mortgages I enjoy spending time with my family. We especially enjoy traveling and I have been to some interesting places over the last several years. In the past, I have enjoyed playing softball and when time allows I like to get in a round of golf, yet, spending an evening at home with the family playing a game or watching a movie is a great reward.

I joined Ruoff Mortgage in 2013 and I have had the best experience since doing so. My philosophies of giving every client great service and to make the home buying experience as stress-free as possible are made possible by the great colleagues that I am honored to work with.

I have dedicated myself to providing the best service possible and this can’t be done just working 9-5, Monday thru Friday. I keep my lines of communication open and always respond to every message, email or text as I believe that communication is one the most important aspects of my job! And because I believe the best experience comes from a face to face meeting, I make myself available to meet with clients in the evenings and weekends.

  • I'm a younger person and this was my first home purchase. Dave did a great job at explaining everything and if I didn't understand, he would put it in a simpler form. He was very warm and inviting right away. I was nervous at first, but about halfway through our first meeting, I felt like I have known him for years! He was extremely easy to talk to. Also, I could tell he enjoys his job. He was all around absolutely fantastic. I will recommend him to everyone I know!

  • Dave was incredibly friendly and inviting and he obviously knew his stuff. As first-time home buyers, we were nervous about the process, but Dave helped make sense of things and made sure we were comfortable before moving on to each new step. We couldn't have asked to work with a better person or company.
