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).

    Working with Josh on originally purchasing our home, and then refinancing it 4 years later, was a fabulous experience. Josh is always quick to respond and quicker to help in any way he can. It was so nice knowing he was a quick call or email away, when we had questions or needed direction on something. Highly recommend this company!

    The Riverbank Finance team was a pleasure to work with. I wanted to refinance my home to achieve a more competitive rate and the team did a great job securing an amazing rate (much more competitive than many other local credit unions and banks) and executing and closing the loan in 2 weeks! I would definitely recommend Riverbank Finance to anyone that is seeking an honest, highly professional team to assist in their financial needs.

    Anthony and his team did a wonderful job for us! They were very responsive, eased our minds during a troubling COVID pandemic, and ensured that we would get the best possible deal on our home. We were very happy working with Riverbank and would gladly work with them again, as well as refer any of our friends or family. Though we haven't met in person (yet) due to pandemic safety measures, they all feel like friends, which makes for a great experience with something that could traditionally be stressful and undesirable. Thank you to Anthony and the team at Riverbank for a wonderful experience!

    Damon Grosz and Riverbank Finance were fantastic to work with from start to finish when we refinanced. He listened carefully to our needs and then helped us look at many different options until we found the best way to refinance that fit our financial situation. He always had our best interest in mind and worked hard to get us the best rate possible. We really appreciated his patience and great communication to make the process as easy as possible for us. I’d highly recommend his services. Thank you, Damon!

    Recently refinanced my house through Riverbank via a family recommendation. Having went through Quicken Loans two years ago to buy my house, I found the staff far more approachable and the process more streamlined and user-friendly. Great service, quick turnaround and they did what they could to ensure I got whatever discounts were possible. Absolutely satisfied.
