    I tried refinancing through my old mortgage carrier and it was nothing but a hassle that did not even get completed. I turned to Josh and his team. They kept it simple and what a difference! Without a doubt, an awesome group to work with! They did an amazing job, highly recommend them!

    I have worked with Anthony on two different mortgages over the past 5 years and he has been more than wiling to help me with any questions or concerns that arose. He is easy to talk with.All of his staff was very responsive whether by email, phone or text. Anthony has always assured me that any question I had was important. I appreciate his willingness to explain things in detail and take the time to do so! I'd recommend Anthony and his staff to anyone. Very professional group of associates.

    I did both my original mortgage and my refinance with Riverbank. Both times they were very responsive and each step moved quickly. They were able to beat everyone else’s rate both times. I can’t imagine using anyone else! They are so friendly and helpful! I was a first time home buyer and it was my first time refinancing. They made it super easy!

    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.
