    I was very pleased with Riverbank Finance for my home refi. They were very thorough, yet we closed within a few weeks. Kelsey Robinson was my main contact, and she was very good at communicating and responded quickly to any questions I asked. She is definitely a person who you would want in your corner. When we closed, they even sent an agent to our home to sign the documents, making the whole process super convenient.

    We made a cross country move and Riverbank Finance came highly recommended to us. We worked with Anthony who did an amazing job of giving us clear and precise information throughout the entire process. It was a lot to juggle moving while trying to close on a home, but it was made far easier due to Riverbank Finance. In all honesty, working with Anthony was the least stressful part! I would highly recommend them!

    Update 08/2021: Amazed again with Tomas and the team. We decided to take advantage of the low mortgage rates and refinanced. They were able to help us eliminate PMI and bring our monthly payment down! Working with Tomas and the team was fantastic. They made the home buying process amazingly simple and quick. I would recommend them to anyone. And as others have said, they are very willing to answer all of your questions. Which was great as first time home buyers!

    Working with Anthony at Riverbank Finance was easily the best decision I made when buying my first home. As many of you who are going through this a first time or who are refinancing know this process can be stressful to understand. Anthony and his team were great at answering any questions and never made me feel like i was a bother…. Trust me i asked many questions. I had such a great experience that I even refinanced with Riverbank. I will always highly recommend them to anyone. Especially if you looking for someone who is trustworthy, honestly, and efficient. Thank you Riverbank Finance!

    My experience with Riverbank Finance and Kelsey Robinson has been nothing short of awesome. The process of refinancing my home was painless and extraordinarily quick, considering the market today. Kelsey was responsive, able to navigate changing scenarios, and great at putting forth solutions. If I could do it again tomorrow-I would, but now I have a few years to wait. Highly recommended.

    Tomas Frezghi at Riverbank finance is the absolute best! We worked with him during the process of securing a mortgage and he left no stone unturned to make that happen for us at a very low interest rate. He also assisted us in finding great home owners insurance at a better rate than we found ourselves. Then to top it all off at the very end of the home buying process he surprised us with taking an additional 1% off of our overall mortgage dues. As first time home buyers it was great to have Tomas at Riverbank finance looking out for us!

    I couldn't have asked for a better experience working with Sonya & Kim. Everything with the refinancing of my home went so smooth and easy! Sonya was incredible and was always quick to answer my emails and questions. Will most definitely be using them for any of my future needs! Thanks again for a quick, easy and stress-free process!

    Long overdue review - I have done two refinances (in 2017 and 2020) with Anthony Bird and Riverbank Finance. I cannot say enough about the professionalism, understanding, communication and competency of Anthony and his team. In my most recent refinance I wasted a lot of time and effort contacting other brokers and lenders just to prove to myself that Riverbank was providing the best service and lowest overall cost for my loan. At this point I implicitly trust Anthony and Riverbank, and on my next purchase or refi I wouldn't bother to contact anybody else.
