“I have known Maria for several years, and while she has helped me with rentals in the past, this was the first house she has sold for me. I already knew Maria and her Staff to be professional, what I didn’t expect was the amount of time and effort they put into making this sale happen. I’ve been represented by Realtors in the past that once they had the listing, put forth little effort. With the market slowing down, Maria had open house every weekend, and was constantly strategizing with her team to find a buyer. Even though finding a buyer took longer than anticipated, Maria never lost hope, and she made me feel like I was her main client. Once she found a qualified buyer, she was involved with every step of the Escrow process making it seamless. I will use Maria for future transactions, and highly recommend her. She is professional and will be personally involved in your complete transaction.”
“TJ did an outstanding job of listing and presenting my property. She was incredibly professional. I’m so grateful my friend introduced me to TJ. I would be thrilled to work with her again!”
“Maria was professional and responsive. Everything went very smoothly and quickly which was important since we had a short timeline to close the sale. I highly recommend Maria for your real estate needs. I was very happy with the outcome of the sale.”
“Enjoy your gift! You deserve more than flowers but these remind us of you! Thank you Tj you truly are the best and we love you. Thanks to everyone else too!”
“Maria, thank you so much for your help with the home sale. You made the process easy and quick! I appreciate your passion for your job and the care you put into the listing.”
“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!”
“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!”
“I wanted to send a HUGE thank you to Stacy Gardner – Realtor extraordinaire… You are setting a new bar for your industry. The excellence, professionalism and care you give your clients is unmatched. Above and beyond the call of duty.”
“Professional and Responsive to our needs as we looked for an investment property in the Vista/Carlsbad area. Maria went out of her way to show us around, develop contacts with sellers, and when something hit the market that fit the bill, she was on top of it . The purchase was flawless. Her team did a great job in keeping us updated and we liked the way thing were done so much we asked them to manage the rental property for us. Was clockwork. Maria has become a great contact and my wife and I look forward to a long term friendship with Maria and her team.“
“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!”
“Maria is a knowledgeable professional who really knows the North County area, where our property is. She is personable, friendly and attentive to detail, and works very individually with us to assess our property, keep it in top condition, and find quality tenants. Maria and Kellie run the business and office with a personal touch and a caring style that make us feel that our property is always in great hands. We highly recommend their services at CalRes!”
“Maria is a 5-star agent all the way. We recently worked with her to sell our house in San Diego. We had worked with her in the past, so when it was time to sell the house, we knew where to go! We are based in SF, so Maria did all of the local work to get the house market-ready, including coordinating new carpets. new floors, interior painting, various repairs, and landscaping, so that the house was picture perfect when it was listed. We had multiple offers above asking in less than a week, and were very pleased with the strong offers we had. Maria had to take care of various details while the house was in escrow and worked closely with the escrow officer to make sure that everything went smoothly. I would strongly recommend her to anyone thinking of listing a house in San Diego!”
“Maria is great! She has helped is with all of our real estate needs over the years. Researching, buying, property management, and most recently selling our investment property. From comps to lenders she looks at each transaction through multitude of lenses to make the right deals for her clients. We have great trust in her professional expertise. Thank you so much Maria!”
“Stacy and her team at CalRes are amazing! She brings enthusiasm and professionalism that really made our home selling experience as stress free and enjoyable as it could be. Stacy and Maria in particular walked us through the entire process of selling our home, and did a masterful job at everything, from staging the house, creating online buzz with expert photos and videos, to the endless back-to-back appointments on walkthrough weekend that led to us selling our house for way more than we expected when we began the process. Stacy is a great communicator, she kept us well-informed and well-prepared, making sure we provided all the disclosures information completely, and knew what was the next step throughout the entire process, both before and after the sale. Stacy gave us great advice when it came time to choosing an offer in order to maximize the opportunity, we couldn’t have been happier with the service she and the team provided!”
“About Maria – Now that our last moving box contents have been situated and a new ‘normal’ has begun, I’d like to convey a note of appreciation. In my experience, three entities have been consistent in their dissemination of their product: Costco, Porsche and James Taylor, because Quality, Congruency and Genuine Customer Care have been their paradigms. I now have added a 4th entity to that list and that’s Maria Severino-Roller. Her dependability and indelible service are a reflection of her character and talent that made my buying experience gratifying. Thank you.”
“We recently sold our condo in Carlsbad with Tj & Maria at CalRes and could not have asked for a more seamless and speedy closing! Being an out of state seller with a departing tenant made my husband and I a little nervous but Team CalRes sold our home $40k over asking, under contract in 3 days from listing, and closed in 14 days. They kept us informed daily and coordinated the loose ends we weren’t able to wrap up being out of state. These ladies are professional, our therapists through the process, and our go-to realtors. Thank you Tj & Maria! “
“I cannot begin to articulate my respect and appreciation for Maria! I was an out-of-town buyer and found Maria through the Chamber of Commerce. I was impressed with her background, her business model that included an all-female staff, as well as her familiarity with Carlsbad. When I spoke to her on the phone she was pleasant, friendly, knowledgeable and easy to talk with – I felt like we were instant friends from the beginning. She carefully (and patiently) listened to everything I said and came through with the perfect place for us. She walked me through the buying process and made it stress-free. She was there every step of the way, always available to me, and always caring about my happiness. She’s the very best – Call her!”
“Stacy’s a take-charge, knowledgeable, kinda gal who knew exactly how to direct me in preparing for the sale of my property. In addition to helping me prioritize what needed to be done, she also provided me with great references of professionals to help complete the tasks. She then quickly focused on the sales process which resulted in multiple offers over an extremely short period of time. I truly appreciated her professionalism & CalRes’s team approach.”
“We have long been searching for our dream beach house in Oceanside California. We live some distance from Oceanside so it was important to have an agent as thorough, responsive and knowledgeable as TJ. She was able to keep us level headed during the searching and buying process. I definitely recommend her in finding your dream home.”
“Tj was awesome to work with. We were first time home buyers and she made us feel confident and knowledgeable. Her patience and positive outlook really helped us go through the not so scary home buying process. We bought the house of our dreams with absolutely 0 buyers remorse!! We would recommend her 100% to anyone looking to buy a home. Thank you so so much Tj, you’re the best!!”
“TJ has sold two of my homes and helped me purchase another. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and an expert at what she does. She’s extremely hard working and put enormous energy and effort into selling my properties. She’s organized and handled each and every detail making it stress free for me. I highly recommend her!”
“Maria and her team were great to work with – very responsive, offered good advice, lots of local knowledge and personal connections with other agents, and they guided us through the whole process. We would definitely work with her again.”
“Linda did an outstanding job selling our home. We had an unusually quick escrow process as we had a contingent offer on the home we were purchasing, and with a short 30 day escrow period. Our goal was to sell out home fast and coordinate escrow timing with both properties. Linda was able to help us accomplish this goal, with 4 offers on our home in the first week. She went over and above helping us when we had workers that needed access to our home, she met the cleaning crew at our home on the last day as it was such a hectic time for us moving out of our home of over 17 years. I would highly recommend Linda and the great team at Cal Res.”
“When I was looking to purchase a property in Carlsbad several months ago, I didn’t know any of the local Realtors. When I began asking people if they would be able to recommend anyone, I was introduced to Stacy, chose her to be my Realtor, and am thrilled with my decision to hire her!! She was a joy to work with. Being a Carlsbad local, she is extremely knowledgeable about all of the various neighborhoods in and around Carlsbad and what each of those neighborhoods have to offer, in addition to also knowing the entire North Country San Diego area really well. She worked so hard to help me find the perfect place, in the area where I ultimately wanted to be. The best part though, was my not having to worry or stress about a thing during the process from start to finish. Stacy and her associates at CalRes lined up and handled everything for me, every step of the way! The experience turned out to be so easy , and went so smoothly, without any of the anxiety that one would normally expect during the purchase of a home. Stacy made sure that all of the necessary people needed during the home buying process, were at the ready, to do their respective parts efficiently and in an incredible professional manner. I could not be happier!!”
Maria handled the sale of the house we had occupied for 26 years as well as the purchase of our newly found home. Though both in Vista, they are very, very different properties. Maria was thorough and knowledgeable about all of Vista. We never felt that we “wasted our time” looking at listings that did not match what we were looking for. We would recommend Cal Res to anyone shopping for a realtor to purchase or sell.
We have worked with Maria’s team since 2014; beginning with her team managing our property as a rental for almost 5 years and then selling it! During the time the property was a rental, we almost forgot that we had a rental until the monthly payments were sent to our account electronically. Any time a renter called her with an issue, she would send us a message with options and costs for us to decide how we wanted to handle it and then she took care of it all! It was so easy compared to when we managed it ourselves for 10 years…worth every penny to have her team manage it. And, her fee was very affordable. She also made the move out of one renter and finding a new renter seamless and communicated often with us the status of interviewing new renters and helping to guide us with decisions with her knowledge. In the end, she helped us sell the property! She worked with the renters to coordinate move out the same day escrow closed! I seriously forgot that we were selling a home as they took care of everything. With her contacts, she was able to get an offer 3 weeks before our house was officially going on the market with a 3 week escrow…and we felt no stress at all even with the short escrow. I really wish we had another property for her team to manage…it was so easy!
TJ worked very hard for many months to represent my wife and I as buyers. We are very picky, and we drastically changed our search parameters over time, nonetheless TJ always carried the same energy and focus through the whole search. We saw in person 100+ houses, and made (unsuccessful) offers on 8 of them. 2 of them came near closing, until we found last minute issues with the properties. Finally, our 9th offer worked out (phew!) TJ was beyond helpful during inspections, finding professional plumbers/inspectors/etc and scheduling them on our behalf. She drove the entire process from start to end, and ultimately made us very happy.
Many thanks to Calres and their team! My realtor Rita Kelley was Amazing on the sell of my deceased moms reverse mortgage property. Rita was friendly, professional and listened to our needs and concerns. We had a Heggstadt petition issue. Rita was available every step of the way. She was available with the answers to questions and even those that we didn’t think of. The time Rita spent beforehand regarding the Heggstadt petition was overwhelming for our family. She remained very optimistic and positive through it all. Rita was very knowledgeable and instrumental in providing suggestions to seek legal advice to resolve title issue. This process should have been lengthy but was done expeditiously. We were able to meet the time frame needed to sell the property. My family will be forever grateful for personalized and professional handling of the sale. Thank you Calres and your wonderful team!
5 Stars… Maria is the best! Extremely satisfied.
“5 Stars… Maria is the best!! She worked hard to sell the condo and got good results. What I enjoyed most about working with Maria is that I feel like I made a new friend!”
Property Management… “Maria’s professionalism was an undercurrent in all of the dynamics that took place when managing my property over the past three years. She was attentive, prompt and ensured that issues were addressed in a timely and effective manner. Maria also managed interactions with tenants with finesse and grace. She was able to uphold my priorities as an owner while making sure that tenants were happy and comfortable.” Sold Property… “I recently sold my tenant occupied investment property with Maria as my agent. Maria does her homework when it comes to analyzing the Carlsbad market and balancing the priorities of a prompt sale with the right price for a property. She is also very experienced with navigating the nuances of selling a home that is tenant occupied. She went the extra mile to ensure that my tenants were well-informed and had input and control about how best to proceed.” “Maria was well aware of the sensitivity of the matter when selling what had been an investment property for the owner but a home to the tenants. Maria did her best create a dynamic that made it possible for everyone to effectively manage the transaction with an open dialogue. Maria’s efficiency, professionalism and attention to detail made all the difference in the sale of my home.”
Maria is very genuine in her approach. This is going to be my second transaction with her and I feel in really good hands with her. She feels almost like a family member… I was extremely satisfied… I love Maria’s efficiency and care.

I will sing your praises and as long as someone is looking for a place you are guaranteed to have my strongest recommendation. Gracias TJ

I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to you for seamlessly orchestrating the sale of my home in Logan Heights. I was overwhelmed with the life changes that my divorce and cross-country move had placed upon me, but you were with me every step of the way. I knew right away when I saw the beautiful MLS listing that you created for my home, that I was in the hands of a consummate professional. Attracting the perfect buyer so quickly proved that your intuition was right-on. Thank you for your patience and understanding with me and my ex husband as we worked to resolve our differences and move forward with the sale of the house. Thank you also for the many, many details that you attended to during the escrow process. Your help has been invaluable to me and I will gladly recommend you to anyone I know who is interested in buying or selling a home. You are a wonderful person, Tj, and I wish you many blessings in the New Year!
5 Stars… Maria was awesome to work with… Extremely satisfied… Maria has a positive attitude and I most enjoyed that she listened to our needs during the purchase of our home.
We have purchased two condominiums and one home in Carlsbad, CA in the past 2 ½ years. TJ Stroben has been our realtor for all three transactions. I have to say, that working with TJ has been a pleasure and the transactions have been seamless without any unforeseen issues or surprises. I can absolutely say, without hesitation, that I would refer TJ’s services to any and all contacts that would be interested in purchasing real estate in the North County San Diego region. My wife and I thank TJ for all of her help and assistance in providing expert and professional realtor services in acquiring the properties in an acceptable timeframe and within budget. We would be more than happy for you to utilize us as references for your future clientele. Thanks again TJ!
Maria Roller and Kellie Granito were a pleasure to work with on the purchase and sale of our homes in Carlsbad. Cal Res is a professional, hard working firm with a personal touch from beginning to end. Would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Carlsbad area.
TJ helped us sell our house in Carlsbad, CA. Selling a home can be stressful but not if you have an amazing agent like TJ. She has a wealth of experience she puts to use and she is tireless. We knew she was connected in the community and had the best up to date marketing methods. Each step of the way she communicated with us so we knew what to expect. T J has a great sense of humor and to know her is to love her. We were so pleased with how the process went even when there were challenges. Some people just deserve 6 stars and TJ is one of them!
We can’t say enough good things about Maria Roller and California Residential Consulting! We had a strategy to roll the equity from our home of 18 years into something more suitable to the needs of our growing kids as they entered high school. Maria and her trusted team helped us navigate a challenging acquisition of a fantastic home in Olde Carlsbad, then turned around and quickly sold our existing home for a great price. We closed on both escrows within 30 days of each other. Maria was born and raised in North County and we would highly recommend her services and local knowledge to anyone looking to buy or sell (or both) a home in the area!
I would highly recommend Maria Roller and the entire California Residential Consulting team to anyone looking to lease, sell, and/or purchase a home. Maria is an amazing real estate professional who truly understands the business and is always a pleasure to work with. She helped us purchase our first home 5 years ago, and we were so happy with her service we wanted to work with her again to sell and buy our next home. She is patient, hard working, and always puts her clients needs first. She provides great insight into the real estate market and did a fantastic job marketing and attracting buyers to our home. We are thrilled with the new home she helped us buy and she was there for us throughout the entire process. I cannot thank her enough for making this a seamless process and for the amazing level of communication from her and the Cal Res Team. Thank you!
Thank you Maria! As a first time homebuyer, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. CalRes made it simple and stress free! You truly are the best.
Maria navigated multiple real estate transactions for us in Carlsbad over the last few years. She helped us acquire an investment property, found suitable tenants for us, and then managed the property for us while we were living out of the area. Recently, she represented us in the purchase of our home, which received multiple offers within days of going on the MLS. She got our offer accepted and kept the deal on track to close in well under 30 days. Communication with Maria is always open and transparent. She has expertise in sales, rentals, and property management – you really can’t go wrong!
Maria is an absolute dream to work with. As a first time home buyer, the whole process is extremely overwhelming and scary. She made us feel extremely comfortable, cared for, and guided us seamlessly through the process from start to finish. She makes you feel as if you are her only client, giving you undivided attention and working hard to find your dream home. She’s very flexible and willing to go whatever distance needed to find that perfect home, she follows up with realtors, and keeps a great working relationship with your best interest at heart. I honestly can’t say enough wonderful things about Maria. She started as an acquaintance and ended as a friend. We have been done with the escrow process for 2 weeks now and she still makes a point to call and text to see how everything is going, and willing to help when issues or questions arise. If you are looking for a 5 star experience in buying your next home, or first home, take the time to talk to Maria! You won’t regret it.
FIVE STARS, “Maria is great! I was a nervous first time home buyer and she walked me through the process in a calm and logical way so that I felt comfortable with my purchase. Her level of communication was excellent. I would highly highly recommend Maria Roller.”
A few months ago, I approached Maria of California Residential, and told her I was interested in very casually looking for a townhome to purchase. Even though I was in no position to buy, Maria agreed to work with me, and we immediately began establishing parameters for my search. At this stage, I was just “window shopping.” I had a lot to do to get all my ducks in a row before purchasing a property could ever become a reality. The first step was to list my condo. We listed it and had several showings and open houses, all of which Maria organized and hosted. None of the other condos in my complex were moving and neither was mine! In the meantime, we put four offers in for townhomes to purchase! Because they were all contingent upon the sale of my condo, the sellers were either not interested in working with us, or we lost the purchase to other bidders. Maria never gave up on me or on my dream. We eventually decided that a home would be more up my alley. Oh man, did I find the perfect place!!! Some how, some way, Maria and her staff were able to manage the sale of my condo and the purchase of my forever home all in the same week. If you are ever considering selling or purchasing property in San Diego County, there is only one choice in realtors. Maria and company are the real deal. They are so professional, prompt, efficient, honest, hard working, and fair. Thank you a million times for being such an integral part of securing our dream home!
My wife and I had just a few days to spend in Oceanside to find and close on a house, and having never been to the area before, we desperately needed a realtor up for the challenge. We knew we had the right person as soon as we met TJ. She listened first, then formulated a plan based on her experience, familiarity of the area and knowledge of current events in the market. Before the first day was done, TJ had a full grasp on what would work for us, and she made the difference by showing us a house that wasn’t yet listed but somehow she knew was available and the one for us. And she was right. At ease in the competitive market, TJ stood with us throughout the offer and closing process, and today we could not be happier owning our dream home. Thank you TJ, we could not have done it without you!
You two are a gift, always remember that! Thank you so much to both of you for all the effort, kindness and attention you have provided to Randy and I in our process of someday being able to live at the beach. You are the BEST management company we have ever had!
My husband and I worked really hard to save for our first home. Everyone warned us that buying a home would be a challenging and frustrating process. We really didn’t know where to start or how the process would work, but then we found Maria Roller! Maria was the most professional and kind individual I have ever worked with. From the moment she met us, she listened and really tried to get to know us and our style, and what we were looking for in a home. She always had a positive and energetic attitude, which made the home buying process very fun! Maria was up to showing us anything and everything so we could find the perfect fit. You can imagine our amazement when we located our perfect home within three weeks of starting! She also took the time to explain things and help us through escrow, since this was all new to us. Without a doubt, I highly recommend her, and I know she will be our realtor for any further property consultations. Thank you so much Maria for all that you’ve done! We are so happy and love our new home!
TJ worked well with both the personal representative of the estate and his attorney in this Probate sale involving an estate being administered in another county. She communicated well, making sure that we were up to date on developments, and took the time to be sure that the proper forms were used and time limits observed. She was also effective in marketing the property. Our result was a successful Probate sale, completed in good order. Thanks TJ!
TJ was amazing! We purchased our dream second home in Carlsbad from 2000 miles away in Wisconsin. The only way this could have happened is with the amazing help of such a professional, enthusiastic, resourceful, energetic, positive, patient and understanding agent. TJ really did make our deal possible; I can honestly say we would not have pulled the trigger and made our purchase without her.
We were living on Okinawa, and with a short few months notice, we informed TJ and Maria we needed to sell our home because we had orders to Pennsylvania. We would be briefly passing through CA in order to pack up our household belongings, and then we would be moving to PA. They both immediately took action initiating a fast home sale. They handled all aspects of the sale from marketing, to cleaning, and to securing contractors as needed. Everything we could and did ask for was handled with seamless precision. Not an easy task, however, with decades of experience, TJ and Maria, with consummate professionalism made our home sale come true in record time, in 42 days from start to finish. We are extremely satisfied and we enthusiastically recommend anyone buying or selling a home to please contact California Residential Consulting first. They will have your best interests at heart.
TJ and her partner Maria were very professional. It was a pleasure working with 2 agents who understood the flow of a transaction and didn’t over react when we hit a slight snag.
