Highly recommend
Sean and his team were very professional and diligent throughout the whole process. Great communication and answered all my questions along the way, I would highly recommend.

Fast and Efficient
I recently refinanced my property in Danbury - CT, and I had a great experience with Sean's team. The process was quick, and I got the best rate on the market.

Great Mortgage Facilitator
As you contemplate what is going to probably be the largest purchase of a lifetime, I would like to recommend Sean Reilly at the Newtown Savings Bank as a mortgage officer. Sean is not only knowledgeable, efficient and a willing helper in this daunting process of obtaining a mortgage, but also a kind and personable helper during the process. Sean is readily accessible by telephone, text and/or email. Have a question, a problem or simply not quite sure what the bank needs or wants from you as a client - simply call Sean. He will communicate not only with you, but also with other members of the loan team to get the answers you need and want. Oh, did I mention he has the patience of Job in dealing with not too tech savvy personalities on the other end of the phone! This was not the first time that I had applied for a mortgage, but it was the most highly supported experience to date. He even managed to explain to a highly skeptical person (me) just why the bank needed Page 3 - intentionally left blank. Oh my what a chore! If you are in the market for that loan to purchase a new home, go see Sean and Newtown Savings Bank in Newtown CT.

An absolute pleasure to work with!
We started our initial mortgage process with a large Nationwide banking service and quickly pivoted to Newtown Savings Bank for a plethora of reasons; and in doing so, we were luck enough to get Sean's expertise and professionalism during this whole process. Being a first time home buyer, there were a lot of aspects that would go over our head. Sean would explain each detail and each potential outcome in real time, which very much helped to put our minds at ease. I could not recommend Sean enough, especially for those first time home buyers who need some guidance. 
Another home run!

I was immediately comfortable by his friendly demeanor. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable about the product, and answered all of my questions. He provided a great recommendation for the closing attorney which saved me time of finding one on my own. Another home run! He took the stress out of all of it. Thank you Sean for making refinancing a breeze!!! I will send every one your way!

Keeps things moving
Sean is competent, approachable and keeps things moving. From the time I called him just to explore my situation, he helped me to see that we could make everything happen for my loan.

He explained how things work and what to expect. Sean estimated the date for closing perfectly, and kept every piece of the process moving along. If I had questions, he was immediately responsive and knowledgeable. On top of all of that, he is a really nice guy. I highly recommend Sean.

We highly recommend Sean Reilly
My wife and I worked with Sean on a mortgage for our new home. As first time buyers, we had a lot to learn about the process. Sean helped us every step of the way, providing information and details about everything we needed to know. He responded to our concerns and needs quickly and accurately, even after hours when we needed timely responses for the offer and subsequent closing of our house. Before starting the house buying process, we really didn't realize how much we would need to rely on our contact at the bank. We are so glad that we found Sean! He was personable, reliable, honest and timely with every interaction we had with him. We highly recommend working with Sean Reilly for a mortgage and home purchase!

Sean made the mortgage process joyous
Sean has been an extremely friendly and knowledgeable resource throughout the entire Mortgage process. Not only has he been able to answer all our (numerous) questions, he's reached out several times on his own just to ensure we were well prepared and understood how the process was moving. He has made sure we were clear as to how the entire house buying process works, and gave us the confidence that we were making the right decisions throughout. After a few sour experiences with our realtor, We were concerned our experience with working on finding a Mortgage would be less than joyous, but were genuinely surprised and delighted with how easy Sean made the entire experience. He has absolutely exceeded our expectations on all fronts. Sean's response time has been exemplary throughout, as we've never waited more than a few moments before he responded back to any inquiries we sent his way. All in all, Sean made the whole mortgage buying experience as joyous as possible. Thanks Sean, for all your help and hard work!!

Delivered the best experience
Sean Reilly just helped us close on our home purchase through Newtown Savings Bank. Sean was always available via phone or email throughout the process and was able to give us prompt, honest answers while setting our expectations. He was head and shoulders above his competition during this process, but also delivered the best experience we have ever had.

Extraordinarily helpful
I just closed my mortgage with Sean Reilly of Newtown Savings Bank. The experience was excellent. I highly recommend Sean to anyone who is in the market for a new home loan. Not only did he offer the best rate and terms, he made the mortgage application process very smooth, quick and clear. Sean was extraordinarily helpful at every single stage of the process. He provided me with comprehensive explanation of the assessment procedure, and criteria and time frame involved in the mortgage application. He was extremely responsive, personable, and available to talk to. He has gone out of his way on many occasions working on my loan. The result was a smooth and timely closing with no surprises.

Very enjoyable experience
Sean was able to match the lowest rate on the market and get me approved for my first mortgage without any hesitation or delays. An absolute pleasure working with Sean and I will definitely be using him for my next mortgage. The house warming card and Christmas gift were very nice personal touches which show his care for you as a person instead of the common client. Very enjoyable experience and highly recommended.

Thank you Sean
Sean made our first time buying a home an absolute pleasure. Not only was he incredibly knowledgeable on EVERY aspect of the process, but he made sure to assist 24-7 with any questions, concerns, inquiries etc. He frequently would help us even when he wasn't in the office, which to me shows incredibly dedication and passion for his line of work. Thank you Sean for truly helping us start our lives on a very positive note. I'm not sure what we would have done without you!

Very helpful throughout the process
My wife and I worked with Sean to get a mortgage for our new home. He worked with us through multiple offers and helped us through this important milestone of our lives of purchasing our first home. We went through Sean at Newtown savings because of the customer service and general honesty of him and his team. We were extremely happy with the response time and clarity of Sean and the rest of the Newtown Savings team. Sean was even willing to answer emails and phone calls on off hours to accommodate our schedule. My wife and I decided to get a special FHA-style loan that would provide the same rate no matter which bank we chose, but we went with Sean because of his customer service. He was very helpful throughout the process and even helped us expedite the closing of our house to finish before Christmas. We would recommend Sean to anyone who is buying a home in Connecticut.

Questions were answered quickly
Sean was tremendous guiding us through the mortgage process. As first time homebuyers, all our little questions were answered quickly with detailed responses. Sean was always proactive in the process letting us know the next steps and what to expect. After hearing some horror stories from colleagues about obtaining a mortgage, I was blown away by how smooth everything went. It also didn’t hurt that he helped us secure the lowest rate that even our lawyer applauded us on at closing. Thanks again!
