A message from Fred Springstead, regional manager, Riverside Mortgage of Northwest Arkansas

Thank you for visiting our web site today. Let me tell you a little about who we are.

Riverside Mortgage has held a presence in Fayetteville, Arkansas for a decade, over which time I have been the only manager as well as the chief lending officer; however my lending experience in Northwest Arkansas actually dates back to 1998. I joined Riverside Bank in 2006, when I opened Arkansas Mortgage in Fayetteville. In 2013 the name of the company was changed to Riverside Mortgage, which was a change in name only. We felt that change was in order because Riverside Mortgage is owned completely by Riverside Bank in Little Rock.

Today, we continue to grow our mortgage lending business by offering more competitive rates and fees than the larger, name-brand banks, and by making sure our clients know they have our full and undivided attention. 
Riverside Mortgage closes an average of $2,000,000 loans each month, which is a smaller number than the larger banks, but that isn’t a bad thing because it allows us to provide a more personal, hands-on lending experience. As an example, if someone we are working with has a credit issue we don’t say, ‘see you in six months.’ Instead we work to get their credit score raised, to make sure they qualify the next time they apply. We know that our clients are the reason we are in business, and we have built Riverside Mortgage into the company it is today by getting consistent results through that same quality service. A testimony to that has to be that client referrals are our primary source of advertising.


Another way we get the word out is through my weekly radio show (The Riverside Mortgage Show), which airs every Monday morning from 9:00 to 10:00 AM, on KURM Radio (790 AM or 100.3 FM). I hope you’ll tune in sometime. 
I could go on but instead just let me ask that if you are someone who is shopping for a home loan, or just considering it, give us a chance to work with you. If you do, we fully believe your search for a lender will be over, and you will become part of our growing list of pleased and satisfied customers.


Call us today and let us show you what we can do.
