    I was really nervous going into the refinance process for our mortgage. But Jenna and her team put me at ease. They are helpful with answering any questions and respond quickly. Any paperwork or signatures needed (except closing) are all easily completed online but if I had any questions they were just an email or call away. Everything with our refi went smooth and was handled at a face pace. I am very appreciative of Jenna and the team for getting this done for us. I highly recommend Jenna and Riverbank Finance.

    We absolutely loved working with Tony and the rest of the Riverbank Finance Team! They were helpful with questions, professional, quick to reply, walked us through every step of the way, and were able to get us in our home in no time. We highly recommend them and will be coming back for future home purchases.

    Anthony Bird and his staff, namely Malina Clements made our homebuying process hassle free. Anthony was always available for any and all questions we had. Our Loan closed in less than 2 weeks. The team made sure we had all the documents we needed uploaded and ready to go when it was time to process our loan. As first time home buyers we didn't know what to expect, but we were very impressed with the professionalism, the knowledge and simple kindness we were shown. They made sure to find the best lender for US and gave us all the options and pricing for the loan. They were genuinely happy for us when we finally found a home. I would definitely recommend Riverbank Finance LLC as your mortgage brokerage. They are a premier company. They were kind, professional, and expedient.

    We recently refinanced with Anthony Bird and we had a wonderful experience. He was always quick to respond to my questions (and I had a lot) and he spent a lot of time looking into our different mortgage options to make sure we were getting the best deal. Everything was explained very well and was a very simple and stress free process.

    I cannot say enough good things about Anthony and his team over at Riverbank finance. They have helped us now with the purchase of two homes, as well as three refinances for those properties. The communication is exceptional - they are always so quick to answer any questions you have throughout the process. Riverbank has also done a great job of adapting to the current times, utilizing technology more and more to further simplify the process. They are such a pleasure to work with, and it always feels like they truly have their clients bests interests in mind. I highly recommend!

    I don't think there is a bad thing I could say about RiverBank Finance and their team. They were very professional and responsive throughout the entire process. Malina Clements was a dream and honor to work with. I sent multiple emails and questions to her and she was answered them quickly. I am sure I was a pain with all the questions, but she was always nice, respectful, and efficient with her responses. Even after the loan has closed she still responded to my questions quickly. Malina is the best of the best. Thank you so much!!!

    Bottom line: Experienced, fast service, lowest rates with highest integrity. I’ve worked with and have known Josh, one of the original mortgage brokers, for over a decade, since when he and his partner started Riverbank as a small 2-3 person operation. Needless to say, the fast, courteous, and individualized service is in the DNA of the company even with its tremendous growth. (1) regarding rates, they have always presented me when some of the most competitive rates out there. I’ve done at least two refinances/mortgages with them because of their great rates and have saved thousands of dollars over the years. (2) regarding professionalism, they are 100% above board and when they get me the best rate, I’ve gone with them. And when they can’t, they smile and encourage me to do what’s best for my family and finances. No pressure. (3) regarding process, they are fast, efficient and experienced. During the this pandemic times they were able to service my loan application process totally

    Anthony and the Riverbank Team truly function as a team to cover all the bases. They are the perfect combination of professional expertise and friendly service. We truly felt like they did everything with our best interest in mind as if it were their home and loan. Super high touch communication and smooth systems to support their efforts toward a quick close. We just closed yesterday and couldn't be happier!
