HAMPTON — With an experienced staff of 12, a beautiful facility on Winnacunnet Road in Hampton, and a complete package of full-service financial products, Community Bank & Trust Company is proud to be the only true community bank serving its area.

Tina Levasseur, who has more than 7 years of banking experience, is the vice president / manager of the Hampton branch, and she wants to be your personal banker.

The Hampton office of Community Bank & Trust Company opened its doors for business a little more than a year and a half ago on August 20, 1997.

Since that time, through their commitment to personal service and through the hard work of their experienced, friendly and caring staff, the bank has truly established itself as a community bank that is dedicated to serving the needs of the community. Today, the bank currently boasts a loan portfolio of nearly $9 million, and steadily growing deposits, which have more than doubled in the past year alone. Clearly, customers have found a bank that fulfills their banking needs.

The bank prides itself on its ability to respond quickly to customers. “When acting on a loan application, we don’t need to go through many layers of decision-makers and committees like a big bank often does,” comments Levasseur, who adds that often she can make a decision for a potential borrower the same day.

The bank offers residential and commercial real estate loans, commercial loans, construction loans, and of course, consumer loans.

With the consolidation trend so evident in the banking industry today, mergers are a regular occurrence, often leaving customers feeling confused about who they’re banking with. At Community Bank, they are committed to providing personal service and attention to each individual customer and his or her needs.

“We offer a full range of products and services like high-yield CDs, a Master Money Debit Card, a 24-hour phone bank, and safe deposit boxes,” says Levasseur. A Community Bank & Trust Company Web site is now also available. You may visit the Web site at

Community Bank’s blend of professional, personal attention, coupled with their most up-to-date banking products, services, and technology, provides for a comfortable environment for their customers to do business.

Located at 117 Winnacunnet Road in Hampton, the bank lobby and drive-up are open Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon. The bank’s ATM, which is located in the drive-up, is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
