A career in the mortgage business began for Steve Hissong in September of 1997 with 1st Source bank. After 15 years in the banking industry Steve decided to make a change and open a Ruoff Home Mortgage office in Plymouth, Indiana.

Since 1997 Steve has worked on several types of loans including conventional, VA, & FHA. The move to Ruoff will allow for more opportunities to help buyers with the addition of USDA lending.

In recent years, Steve has dealt with and grew from the experiences while working through a housing bubble. The lending world got flipped upside down and like many others Steve was right in the trenches learning and evolving with the business.

Steve Hissong and the Ruoff Home Mortgage Team have much to offer clients who are looking for low costs, competitive rates, the most loan programs, sound advice, and that hometown bank feeling! Steve was married to Angela in 1998 and has three great children Brady (12), Ella (10), and Lola (5). Steve loves spending time with family and friends. Steve also likes staying active by golfing at the Plymouth Country Club, bowling & running. Steve is a member of the First United Methodist Church (Plymouth), Plymouth Country Club and is the Treasurer of the Board of Directors for Habitat for Humanity in Marshall County. Steve is a supporter of many local charities.

"My customer service based philosophy is what I have built my career behind. Over the past 15 years my customers know that I am putting them into a mortgage loan product that not only helps them purchase or refinance their home, but it also will help them build a brighter financial future."

Ruoff has been providing home loans to the people of Indiana since 1984 - more than 26 years. It is because of the phenomenal Ruoff Home Mortgage team, including our in-house processing, underwriting and closing departments, that I am able to offer my clients and referral partners low costs, competitive rates, a wide variety of loan programs, sound advice and that hometown bank feeling.

My experience...

My customer service philosophy is to treat every customer with respect and to make their experience as stress free as possible. I believe that the purchase of a new home is a major decision and should be treated as such. I strive to make this decision as easy as possible for each client by being honest and trustworthy along with communicating frequently all while offering them sound and reliable advice.

I believe that Ruoff is a great choice for all of your lending needs because we are a locally owned company that has everything that you need. We offer a very wide variety of lending programs through FHA, VA, USDA, and conventional lending. We also keep everything in house, once you begin the loan process your file will be processed and underwritten by a Ruoff employee, this saves you from added headaches and stress but most importantly saves you time and money. Call me today if I can help you purchase your dream home or refinance your existing loan to save you money!!
