Eric Kilstrom

Sr. Vice President

With over 15 years in mortgage and banking experience, I strive to provide leadership, integrity, and the will to succeed in everything we do with my duties at VIP Mortgage. Growing up in the Valley of the Sun gave me the chance to watch one of the most beautiful cities in American grow into what it has become today.

After graduating from Shadow Mountain High School and attending Paradise Valley Community College I chose to attend Northern Arizona University and obtain my Bachelors Degree’s. After graduating from college I quickly realized helping people obtain the American Dream of home ownership is what I wanted to do.

My proudest accomplishments in life are my two sons Griffin and Grayson. Along with my wife Sara we currently reside in Anthem, AZ a suburb of Phoenix.

We not only provide mortgages to those looking to obtain the American Dream at VIP Mortgage but we strive to make our communities in which we live in a better place for our families.

Below is what I enjoy doing and gives you an idea of what I am doing to improve my life, my families and my communities.
