“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!

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 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.”
