Joel Scheer

Joel was born and raised in Huntington Indiana.  He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from St. Francis College in 1997.  Upon graduation he worked in the automobile industry for few years before beginning his mortgage banking career at Ruoff Mortgage Company in August 2001.  He was promoted to a Branch Manager position in 2009.


In 2010 he was awarded Branch Manager of the year by Ruoff.  He has also been recognized as a member of Ruoff’s Branch Manager’s President’s Club in 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021, awarded only to the top six branch managers company-wide.


In 2013 he joined the board of the Northeast Indiana Mortgage Bankers Association (NEIMBA).  He is a two-time past president and still a very active member for the local chapter.  Although he has served on several committees (chaired and co-chaired) throughout his time with association, most notably has been his work spearheading the annual Trivia Night event which has provided tens of thousands of dollars in donations to the Mustard Seed Furniture Bank of Fort Wayne over the past several years.  The board also hosts a Casino Night event each year that raises dollars for NeighborLink Fort Wayne.


He, along with his Ruoff branch team, also volunteer their time at the Fort Wayne Community Harvest Food Bank.


In 2020 he was elected Secretary/Treasurer of the state board of IMBA. Joel has served on variety of committees within IMBA, including being the Education Chairperson from 2019 to 2021, and has been a presenter for their Future Leaders Program.  He is currently a member of the Executive Committee serving as Vice-President, and will be sworn in as IMBA President in June of this year.  


He is a member of UPSTAR Indiana (Upstate Alliance of Realtors), the Fort Wayne Home Builders Association, and the Huntington County Chamber of Commerce. 


Joel is the youngest of nine siblings, married his wife Heather on Valentine’s Day in 1998 and is the proud father to his two children, Maddy, 23, and Blake 21.


His hobbies include: golf, card and board games, puzzles, and spending time with his friends and family (especially around the pool or traveling in the motor home, including the tailgate gatherings at Franklin College where his son plays football).
