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 appreciate everyone on the Riverbank team. I was going through a situation and Jenna and Jordan stayed on top of me and didn’t let me fall off. They are a great team and they get the job done! I am so thankful to have worked with them and for them getting me in my new home! Definitely will be using the Riverbank team again in the future!

    Josh was very helpful in the initial process. Once we got deeper into the process, his associate Malina joined and she was very helpful as well. The two made a great team. My fiancé and I just closed on our house and we honestly could not have wished for a better company to go through. Josh and his associates will definitely take care of you and go the extra mile. 10/10 recommended. Definitely worth more than 5 stars ????????

    Kelsey at Riverbank Finance was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was very patient with our many questions and was very prompt in getting back to us. It was such a smooth process throughout and we'll definitely be returning for any future financing needs!

    We worked mostly with Kelsey Robinson, and to say that working with her was a pleasure is a complete understatement! Kelsey is so helpful, patient, caring, professional, and resourceful. She went the extra mile explaining, in detail, everything that was happening during the lending process. We always felt comfortable and encouraged to reach out to her with any concerns or questions. Kelsey was quick with her responses and always had very good information to give. As first-time homebuyers, I can't imagine having worked with anyone else and I would highly recommend working with Riverbank Finance; everyone that we worked with was professional and helpful. If you are a first-time homebuyer or you've already gone through this process before, do yourself a huge favor and ask to work with Kelsey Robinson, at Riverbank Finance!

    Kelsey Robinson recently helped me upgrade and close on a house in the West Michigan area and it was a true delight to work with her. I actually evaluated several lenders and Kelsey was by far the most responsive and thorough. She truly went above and beyond her duties to try and get me the best rate and provided some one-on-one coaching to help improve my credit score. For a second-time home buyer, Kelsey was extremely responsive and patient. There were times I didn't understand what was going on and she'd just give me a call and explain things step-by-step. I also liked the software process Riverbank used. It is easy to upload and see statuses of where things are in the process. I've already recommended Kelsey to friends on the housing market and will continue to do so!

    Josh and his team at Riverbank were great. They never took longer than one business day to respond to my constant questioning and were the best priced.
