About Maria Severino-Roller

Meet the owner of CalRes, a true local and our very own spirited team captain! Maria’s career began over two decades ago at Chase Home Finance managing default loan servicing which included loss mitigation, short sales and foreclosures. In 2006, Maria was instrumental in the implementation of the ARM Reset Modification program. This program paved the way for the national program known as “Making Homes Affordable”. She then furthered her career working for New American Funding as a branch manager and corporate trainer and ultimately opened their real estate division New American Residential. While employed with NAF, Maria played an active role as a founding member in a trade organization known as AAHMP. She spent two years in Washington DC & Virginia working with members of Congress, Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac to offer alternative underwriting solutions to the Making Homes Affordable program all in an effort to revitalize the distressed economy and promote home ownership.

As a hometown girl, daughter of a schoolteacher and custom home builder, Maria has always been passionate about community, entrepreneurship and real estate. You can find Maria cheering on her daughters at the field, pool or stage. Maria runs a successful business but not without a lot of laughter, 90’s hip hop and the best spirit wear.

    “We are very happy with the service provided by Maria Severino-Roller and TJ. We would highly recommend them and I would use them again. They were very enthusiastic, patient, responsive, and knowledgeable of the market. We always felt they had our best interest in their hands. Their consultations were invaluable and they provided us the services we needed to ready the home for sale because they had the contacts we needed. Reach out to Maria. You will be happy you did!”

    Scott & Katya, Buyers

    We had an amazing experience with Maria. She helped us find a house in Carlsbad in a very challenging market within a very tight time frame and we couldn’t be happier with our home. Maria is very professional and she knows the market/area very well. She is very responsive and was always available throughout the process. Our transaction was seamless and Maria was always on top of things. Maria has great energy and is very personable, which made our experience with her that much more fun. She also was a great resource and had many good recommendations for vendors to help us out with some house projects afterwards. Definitely recommend Maria for anyone looking to buy a house! She will take a great care of you!

    “Just wanted to share how amazing our recent experience working with Maria and Kellie at CalRes was. We needed to do some pretty major upgrades in a rental condo and we needed to find some new tenants as well. My wife and I both work full time and did not have the time to handle this. When I called Maria, she said “this is what we do and we’d be happy to help you!” What transpired over the coming weeks was simply incredible. They handled everything and just kept me in the loop the whole time. They have an amazing team that works with them. They were so patient with all my high maintenance questions. In the end, Kellie and Maria more than surpassed our expectations. The condo was transformed so beautifully, and they found great tenants within a week of listing! We absolutely loved working with Maria and Kellie and will certainly reach out to work with them again!”

    Esteban & Bri, Buyers

    Maria had previously represented us in the purchase of two properties and managed our rental property for us when we lived out of state. Maria understands her clients wants and needs and looks for opportunities that suit them. For example, she recently approached us with an amazing opportunity! She found an interested buyer for our occupied rental property and we were able to sell the property quickly. Maria’s professionalism and communication skills put all parties, including the tenants, at ease. We greatly value Maria’s advice and creativity and are grateful that she created this opportunity for us. Thank you, Maria!
