Eric Van Swol

Eric Van Swol

Loan Officer Eric Van Swol is a bright young star in the mortgage game. Think Michael Jordan circa 1984, Jackie Robinson circa 1947, or Michael Phelps circa 2004. If these comparisons elicit emotions of inspiration and awe, that is exactly what should occur. Like all of his aforementioned predecessors, Eric stands on the precipice of greatness with a drive and a hunger to be a champion in his own right. While championship trophies and gold medals don’t adorn the mantle just yet, nor is it likely that would occur in the mortgage industry, Eric is ready to shine and is committed to prospective and current clients alike in order to achieve the greatest level of success for them in their search for the best service and financing.

He graduated from Hope College with a B.A. in History, Communication, as well as Spanish, which he speaks fluently. Forever a Dutchman in more ways than one, he likes sports almost as much as he likes competing and sports metaphors. Born and raised in Grand Rapids, he is very familiar with the area and has traveled extensively in the great state of Michigan, which in his not so humble opinion is easily a Top 5 state (Contact him to find out what the rest of his Top 5 looks like).

    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.

    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.
