    With a zero credit score they put me into the house of my dreams. I can't thank Damon and his team at Riverbank finance enough. Without them, none of it would have been possible. They helped me through every step of the process from beginning to end. Very professional and personable at the same time. Would absolutely do business with them again, highly recommended!

    A few years ago, when I purchased my first home I went through Heather Rake for my mortgage. I had an absolutely amazing experience, so when it was time for me to refinance, of course she was the first person I thought to call. Again, she did an amazing job and made the whole process quick and painless! She was so professional to work with an made sure I was 100% satisfied with my experience. I would highly recommend Heather if you are thinking about buying or refinancing!

    I have just purchased my first home using Riverbank Finance, working specifically with Anthony Bird. First of all, I highly recommend using a mortgage broker. Anthony has a working relation with nearly all loan distributors to find you the best loan/rate depending on your situation. After going to school for 7 years to get my doctorate and accruing a very large amount of student debt, the Riverbank team was still able to get me qualified for a great home on a single income. Anthony went above and beyond answering all of my questions regarding the home buying process and even assisted with some of these matters. I couldn't recommend a more friendly and trustworthy group of people.

    Damon is the best! He managed our last 2 home loans and his communication, timeliness, and attention to our needs as buyers was amazing! He found us the best rates and gave us personalized attention...what more could we ask for!

    Anthony and his team gave us a great experience as first-time home buyers, especially in the currently hyper-competitive housing market in West Michigan. They are incredibly personable and personally attentive, and walked us very careful through each step of the process to ensure that we understood what was happening and what we were getting into. Riverbank provided a number of different loan options and helped us choose the one that made the most sense for our personal and financial situation. We were also in a tight situation, being in a rental home on an expiring lease and needing to close as quickly as possible to ensure we wouldn't need to find stop-gap housing in the interim. Anthony and his team delivered on their promise to close in three weeks or less, and we're incredibly grateful for the effort they extended to do so. Bottom line: I would highly recommend first-time homebuyers look at Riverbank Finance when shopping for a mortgage!

    I would highly recommend Josh and his team at Riverbank! They are kind, always available and always had an answer for my "many" questions. My daughter used Josh for her first home and was very pleased. I used Josh to purchase our new home and was over the top happy with everything. Our interest rate ended up being better than I expected, and Josh was always working in our favor with the realtors. Riverbank had many resources to help us find the right home in a busy market. If you want honesty, loyalty and someone that works longer hours than 9-5, Riverbank Finance LLC is the team you should use to finance your new adventure with.

    My wife & I had an amazing experience working with Riverbank Finance obtaining our first home mortgage. We were led through the process by our MLO, Eric Van Swol. Eric was very knowledgeable, great to work with and made the process seamless. We also had a great experience with Malina Clements, our Mortgage Loan Processor. She made the documentation process as easy as it gets. We really appreciate her excellent communication which helped us get everything we needed in on time and helped us close one week earlier than expected!! I would recommend Riverbank Finance to anyone looking to buy/refinance their home.
