    I have worked with Kelsey twice now to refinance my home, and she has been a dream to work with both times! She not only makes the process easy to follow, but she also ensures that you're given all the options available and are comfortable with the financial decisions you are making. Kelsey guided me through the refinancing process during a difficult transitional time in my life, and I could not be more thankful for her patience, kindness, and knowledge as I came to her with many questions that she was happy to answer. I am so grateful for all of her help with refinancing my home!

    I really wanted to make that leap forward in buying my first home, but had no idea where to even start. My brother had just bought his first house the year before and encouraged me to reach out to Kelsey at Riverbank Finance, whom he said really guided him through the entire process. After I built up the courage to send that first email, we started to talk, and she immediately put my worries to rest. As promised, Kelsey helped me every single baby step of the way, and I truly believe I could not have done it without her. Kelsey’s very prompt service, experience, knowledge, confidence, and miraculous ability to explain things to a clueless first time home buyer, helped me move into my first home just in time for the holidays. She will go way above and beyond - definitely recommend!

    I worked directly with Brandon and Kim and they were fantastic every step of the way. Always very professional and helpful. Every time I had a question or needed something they were quick with responding either by phone call, email or text. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family.

    Kelsey and her team at Riverbank Finance could not have done a better job in helping me to navigate my first home mortgage! When shopping around for a mortgage that fit my needs, I wasn't feeling heard or respected by other institutions. As soon as I started working with Kelsey, I knew she had my best interests in mind and that I was in good hands. She walked me through every step, explained anything that might be tricky for a first time homeowner to understand, and worked incredibly hard to get me the best product possible. I will definitely be going to Kelsey for any future home purchases and would recommend anyone to work with her!

    Where do I begin?!! Jenna and her team were amazing and extremely helpful throughout my home buying process. I had so many questions, she and her team were there to answer them all. I always felt that my success was important to Jenna and that she truly wanted to see me in my new home as soon as possible. With her help I was able to close on my new home quickly. She listened, genuinely cared and found the best loan that would fit my needs!! I will continue to recommend her to anyone looking for a home. Thank you Jenna!

    Kelsey was great! She helped us every step of the way through the process of buying our first home. It was very easy to get ahold of her and get all of our questions answered. She was very knowledgeable and really took the time to explain everything in detail.

    Working with Anthony and his team made the home buying experience much less stressful than it can be. He and Malina were always available and responded quickly to any questions or concerns I had throughout the process and were quick resolve any issues that arose. I would highly recommend them to anyone buying a home.
