Joel Scheer, Branch Manager

Joel 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 for the Northeast Indiana chapter of IMBA. He is a two-time past President and still a very active member for the local chapter. Although he has served on countless committees (chaired and co-chaired) throughout his time with NEIMBA, 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. He, along with his Ruoff branch team, have also volunteered their time at the Fort Wayne Community Harvest Food Bank and will continue to do so in the future.

Joel has served on variety of committees within IMBA, including being the Education Chair from 2019 to 2021, and has been a presenter for the Future Leaders Program. In 2020 he was elected Secretary/Treasurer of IMBA, 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.

Most recently, Joel has accepted an invitation to be a participant in the 17th annual Dancing with the Fort Wayne Stars event being held at the Grand Wayne Center in downtown Fort Wayne on 10/06/2022, where local celebrities partnered with professional dancers compete to raise money for Carriage House, a certified “Clubhouse Model” program with the singular mission of assisting people in their recovery from mental illness and reintegration into the community.
