    My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Tad Ries and Brad Van Asten at the Little Chute, WI location in the purchase of our home. Not only were they both so very kind and helpful, they were always very responsive to any questions we had and worked very hard to ensure our home purchase happened seamlessly. We were very pleased with all they did for us from day one, until the day we got the keys to our new house! I would highly recommend Tad Ries and his team to all! Thank you so much for helping us purchase our home!

    Tad Ries and his team were very thorough. They helped us with everything we needed and answered all of our questions. If we were unsure or seemed confused they would explain some more and in different ways until we understood. This process went a lot smoother than we thought it would!

    Tad, many thanks to you for your expert assistance and guidance through our first-ever home purchase. Your responsiveness and the service provided to us has been outstanding. As our lender, we’ve felt strongly that you’ve been an advocate for us as we’ve moved through the home-buying process. We will definitely refer others to you in the future, should the opportunity present itself.

Tad Ries

Hello! My name is Tad Ries. I am a Regional Branch Manager for GSF Mortgage Corporation, located at Little Chute Wisconsin (Appleton/Green Bay area). I have been assisting individuals and families in achieving their dreams of becoming homeowners for the past 20+ years. With my extensive experience, I manage their mortgages by keeping them up to date with the best possible loan for their situation. I would be honored to assist you with your next home purchase or refinance.

Since the beginning of my career as a loan officer in 1995, I have worked my way up the corporate ladder. I have been honored with many awards including superstar of the year, partner of the year and top performer for many years running for GSF Mortgage.

I am also the owner of RCV Properties, LLC and Ries Custom Homes. RCV Properties is a rent-to-own based company that has helped dozens of families realize the dream of home ownership. Ries Custom Home is a custom home-building company allowing for a lower down payment than conventional construction loans. For only $10,000 down (about 5%), I will build you a custom turn-key home. I buy the lot; you choose the custom layout and designs of the home. When the construction is complete, I sell it to you and do the financing to be sure you are getting the best interest rate and term available. I apply your $10,000 deposit to your down payment and closing costs at closing. Down payments of 20%+ for a construction loan is no longer needed. I am not aware of any other builder offering this!

Outside of work, I enjoy the outdoors, including hunting fishing, snowmobiling and boating, along with spending time with my family.

I appreciate your business and look forward to hearing from you!
