Excellent Service
It was a pleasure to work with Karissa. Very professional and thorough. She kept me well informed on every step of the process and always answered my questions quickly. I would highly recommend her!

You are amazing! My family is indebted to you
Karissa I don’t have words. Thank you! I never thought home ownership would happen for me and you made it happen. Blessings and love always
A loan officer who will treat you like family
Words cannot express how amazing Karissa is not only as a loan officer but as a human! She was professional knowledgeable and went above and beyond for me and my family. Timely responses, understanding and support were only a few of the things she provided to us during an incredibly stressful out of state relocation process. My family will forever know that Karissa played an integral part in bringing us back home to New England and we will be forever thankful for her kindness. It is not everyday that you meet someone who enjoys their job and takes pride in helping people like Karissa does - this woman deserves a raise, promotion and recognition for her exceptional work ethic - I highly recommend Karissa to anyone in need of a loan officer who will treat you like family!!
Responsive, Professional, and treats you like family
From the moment we met with Karissa about our mortgage, I trusted she was going to take care of our family as we bought our first home. She helped us figure out the best financial solution based on our needs and level of comfortability and she helped us through the home buying process seamlessly. She also got us the most competitive products and rates that she could and it truly beat all the competition out there. She was always responsive, able to pivot easily when we changed our approach to offers we were considering, and she ultimately secured us the financing we needed for our forever home without any trouble. If you want to feel like you're being taken care of like family, work with Karissa!
Absolutely wonderful to work with!
Karissa couldn't have helped me any better. This was my first ever home purchase and after a year and a half looking for the right one, I was not satisfied with the previous lender I was working with. I reached out to Karissa and we hit it off instantly. She was always on top of her game, responded to my questions quickly and with a ton of knowledge, and made the process so smooth. My friends and family were honestly very amazed with how easy the process had been going for me, and they've purchased 1 or more homes before and wished they'd had the same experience. 100% would work with her again!

The best help for a first time home buyer!
Karissa was all that we could have asked for and more when it came to walking us through the process of buying our first home. From our first phone call to closing, Karissa provided expertise, advice, and plenty of laughs throughout, all while going above and beyond to provide us with the best rate and smoothest experience possible. She is incredibly communicative and can easily explain anything you may be confused about. We cannot recommend her enough, she's truly a pleasure to work with.
There every step of the way...
We cant say enough positive things about Karissa. She held our hand throughout the process, answered all of our questions timely and went above and beyond to get the final paperwork completed and submitted. Because of Karissa we were able to lock in a great rate and get our home improvement projects underway. Highly recommend!

Energy, Enthusiasm and an attention to detail!
Newtown Savings is always the best at customer service. With all those stars shining bright, our mortgage assistant had to be the sun or a comet. We were fortunate to have Karissa Peters assisting us with our loan. Karissa is fun, engaging and a true professional. We laughed a lot during the serious business of money lending! Karissa is very knowledgeable about the product, the process and we felt confident every step of the way. She is also a patient teacher as I know I asked the same question several times. Thank you Karissa!
