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 cannot say enough good things about Anthony and his team over at Riverbank finance. They have helped us now with the purchase of two homes, as well as three refinances for those properties. The communication is exceptional - they are always so quick to answer any questions you have throughout the process. Riverbank has also done a great job of adapting to the current times, utilizing technology more and more to further simplify the process. They are such a pleasure to work with, and it always feels like they truly have their clients bests interests in mind. I highly recommend!

    I don't think there is a bad thing I could say about RiverBank Finance and their team. They were very professional and responsive throughout the entire process. Malina Clements was a dream and honor to work with. I sent multiple emails and questions to her and she was answered them quickly. I am sure I was a pain with all the questions, but she was always nice, respectful, and efficient with her responses. Even after the loan has closed she still responded to my questions quickly. Malina is the best of the best. Thank you so much!!!

    Bottom line: Experienced, fast service, lowest rates with highest integrity. I’ve worked with and have known Josh, one of the original mortgage brokers, for over a decade, since when he and his partner started Riverbank as a small 2-3 person operation. Needless to say, the fast, courteous, and individualized service is in the DNA of the company even with its tremendous growth. (1) regarding rates, they have always presented me when some of the most competitive rates out there. I’ve done at least two refinances/mortgages with them because of their great rates and have saved thousands of dollars over the years. (2) regarding professionalism, they are 100% above board and when they get me the best rate, I’ve gone with them. And when they can’t, they smile and encourage me to do what’s best for my family and finances. No pressure. (3) regarding process, they are fast, efficient and experienced. During the this pandemic times they were able to service my loan application process totally

    Anthony and the Riverbank Team truly function as a team to cover all the bases. They are the perfect combination of professional expertise and friendly service. We truly felt like they did everything with our best interest in mind as if it were their home and loan. Super high touch communication and smooth systems to support their efforts toward a quick close. We just closed yesterday and couldn't be happier!

    Working with Damon at Riverbank Finance made refinancing a breeze, even during this unprecedented time. He was quick to respond, professional, and always made us feel comfortable. He gave us options we didn't know we had, and it was obvious he was looking out for our best interest. Their virtual system is top notch, and they even allowed for contactless signing and met us at our car. We have been telling everyone we know about Damon, and hope that you will use him for your mortgage/refinance needs too. He made it so easy.

    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 ????????
