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 couldn't have asked for a better experience working with Sonya & Kim. Everything with the refinancing of my home went so smooth and easy! Sonya was incredible and was always quick to answer my emails and questions. Will most definitely be using them for any of my future needs! Thanks again for a quick, easy and stress-free process!

    Long overdue review - I have done two refinances (in 2017 and 2020) with Anthony Bird and Riverbank Finance. I cannot say enough about the professionalism, understanding, communication and competency of Anthony and his team. In my most recent refinance I wasted a lot of time and effort contacting other brokers and lenders just to prove to myself that Riverbank was providing the best service and lowest overall cost for my loan. At this point I implicitly trust Anthony and Riverbank, and on my next purchase or refi I wouldn't bother to contact anybody else.

    As a single woman, having a house of my own has always felt like a dream out of reach. Until now, with the gracious expertise of Kelsey Robinson at Riverbank Finance. She made sure we understood every detail of the process and masterfully communicated every line item expense. We were thrilled with how much she saved us on closing costs and our interest rate lock-in. No matter what twists and turns came about (buying a first home is complex!), she was transparent and direct so that we could make informed decisions. We had her on speed dial and I cannot say enough how grateful I am to have been in her service and care. Just look at this beauty I can now call home. Thank you, Kelsey and Riverbank Finance!

    Jenna is the best! Easily to get a hold of to answer all my questions at any time. Over all very patient for this first time home buyer. Highly recommend her to anyone looking. Thanks again for a smooth and responsive service.

    Josh was just amazing. He helped me get the lowest rate and the whole process was simple and easy. He always answered my emails or phone calls in a timely manner and he even called me after the closing to make sure that I was happy with the process. Will refer all my friends and family to them for sure.

    Besides getting me the best rate in town, Kelsey was able to get me the insanely quick closing that I wanted! From making an offer to closing in just 16 days!! As my needs and home search changed she was always on top of it and getting me my new loan options for each property type I looked at. She knew exactly what I was comfortable with spending and what my goals were, even when I'd lose sight of that, she knew exactly what to do to get me back to where I wanted to be! I honestly couldn't be happier and know I would not be in my dream home (at better than my dream price!) right now if it wasn't for her incredible skills!! I cannot recommend her enough!

    Damon Grosz did it again! I was fortunate to work with him on my initial purchase and now with a refinance. Again, Damon made the process easy and seamless. I closed in a matter of weeks. Damon explained everything up front and the results were as we discussed. No last minute changes or oops we weren’t expecting this! Damon is transparent, ethical and will work to give you what’s best for your situation. You are not just numbers to him. The level of service he provides, is much like having a good family member working for you. Honestly and simply, I trust Damon and will continue to recommend him without any reservations. Sincerely, Margie McKoy

    We had a phenomenal experience working with Kelsey Robinson. She went the extra mile to answer our questions in clearly and at lightning-fast speed. I always dreaded applying for a mortgage, but Kelsey made it as enjoyable as possible, and made us feel like we were in safe hands for the largest purchase of our lives. Kelsey ended up getting us cleared to close in 8 days (weeks ahead of schedule)!!! I can't imagine ever working with anyone else.
