Mortgage Women Magazine recognized the nation's top-producing women mortgage loan originators in its March 2022 digital edition. Rueth ranked No. 1 on the list of 44 women based on her total dollar volume of origination. Rueth led award recipients with origination sales totaling $374 million for 907 loans in 2021.

“Nicole has consistently shown true dedication and integrity in serving the home financing needs of her community.

Rueth has a rich history in the mortgage industry, passionately advising clients on their wealth-building and home financing strategies for over 17 years in the Denver housing market. She started on the operations side of mortgage financing, including warehouse management, lender relationships, FHA/HUD approval, post-closing, and loan product management.
