    Recently closed on an investment property. Anthony was a great resource! He replied quickly to all requests, answering questions and providing documentation much faster than I expected. He and his team are really on top of their game! I very strongly recommend them. We're looking to purchase another property soon and are continuing to work with them.

    Anthony Bird is a great lender, he took a lot of time to help my fiancee buy our first home, no matter how many questions he explained in easy detail all the fine print and worked close with us. We were initially approved for a FHA Loan and he gave great advice on how to get our credit score up so we could qualify for Conventional which made things a lot easier for us. 10/10 would work with him again.

    I reached out to Riverbank Finance after seeing an ad on Facebook. I was quickly put in touch with Damon. He was very thorough with explaining the process and what options they offered. We had a bit of a unique situation and Damon worked hard to get us into our home. It was great working with him and I truly appreciate it!

    Closing on my first home today at 24, and John DeGraaf was my loan officer. He worked very swiftly and has prompt communication. I did research prior to starting the process, so I knew quite a bit already but he made the process smoother than I could’ve ever imagined. No horror stories here. I chose a close date, and that date was met. I feel like I got a great deal for the market we’re in and I’d definitely do business again with Riverbank.

    As a realtor, there are a few key things I look for in a lender, and Damon Grosz from Riverbank Finance has all of them. He worked hard for our clients who were purchasing their first home from start to finish. He was communicative, hard working, and creative at overcoming obstacles. Highly recommend.

    I had the pleasure of working with John at Riverbank Finance and I can't express how grateful I am for his exceptional service. Throughout the entire home buying process, John proved to be a reliable and dedicated professional. Even when we encountered unexpected delays with the VA, John handled them with remarkable expertise and grace. His friendly and approachable demeanor made it feel like I was working with a trusted friend throughout the entire process. One of the standout qualities of John was his ability to communicate effectively and navigate any challenges that arose. When we faced delays with the VA, John helped take charge and proactively addressed the issues, ensuring a positive outcome for myself! (from what I've read, positive outcomes with the VA are not exactly common). Johns ability to effectively communicate with all parties involved was a key component of overcoming the challenges we faced with the VA. Working with John was an absolute pleasure. He was always easy
