    Kelsey was great! She helped us every step of the way through the process of buying our first home. It was very easy to get ahold of her and get all of our questions answered. She was very knowledgeable and really took the time to explain everything in detail.

    Anthony Bird at Riverbank is great to work with! He is quick to respond and thorough in explaining options. He takes the time to help you understanding what is available and what to expect so you feel comfortable with the decisions being made. He is also great at providing updates along the way with quick update videos and e-mail messages. He also has more options and flexibility than a standard bank or credit union. Definitely will be back for future needs and would highly recommend to others!

    This was our first experience with Riverbank Finance, as well as Tomas. Tomas was very helpful in helping us find the lowest refi rate! He addressed all concerns professionally, quickly and efficiently! I would definitely recommend Tomas at Riverbank Finance, should you find yourself needing a new mortgage or refinance!

    Brandon at Riverbank Finance is a rockstar. Communicative, knowledgeable, personable, and thorough. Sometimes in financial matters, you can feel like another number on a paper. Brandon really made us feel like our experience mattered to him, and took great care of us through the home-buying process. I recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or refinance a home. Thanks, Brandon!

    I was very pleased with Riverbank Finance for my home refi. They were very thorough, yet we closed within a few weeks. Kelsey Robinson was my main contact, and she was very good at communicating and responded quickly to any questions I asked. She is definitely a person who you would want in your corner. When we closed, they even sent an agent to our home to sign the documents, making the whole process super convenient.

    We made a cross country move and Riverbank Finance came highly recommended to us. We worked with Anthony who did an amazing job of giving us clear and precise information throughout the entire process. It was a lot to juggle moving while trying to close on a home, but it was made far easier due to Riverbank Finance. In all honesty, working with Anthony was the least stressful part! I would highly recommend them!
