Owner, Maria Severino-Roller, began her career over two decades ago at Chase Home Finance. In 2006, Maria was instrumental in the implementation of the ARM Reset Modification program, which 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 and 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.

The CalRes team of realtors specializes in residential sales and property management throughout North County and all of San Diego. The team is authentic, honest and dedicated to providing their clients with superior customer service and guidance along every step of their real estate journey. They go above and beyond for their clients and are their biggest advocates and cheerleaders throughout the whole process and beyond.

“The CalRes team has so much to offer their clients and community," said Maria. "TJ is a skilled negotiator with 22 years’ experience in the industry, has strong local roots and professional connections including a board position with the Association. Kellie manages a very successful property management portfolio for CalRes in addition to representing her loyal clients with their residential sales, and Stacy's long-time Carlsbad connections make her the trusted referral source for all things related to local real estate and the Carlsbad community."

Maria, TJ, Stacy and Kellie pride themselves on client and community appreciation events and host several events throughout the year to build community. They give back to the community by donating money from each sale to local charities. The Gary Sinise Foundation and local pet shelters are their current favorites. They also host many fundraisers for various organizations – One Warm Coat; Carlsbad Unified School District; and various team sports boosters.

CalRes had so much fun hosting the Carlsbad Village Association mixer last year, that they are hosting one again on Thursday, March 16th from 5pm to 7pm at their delightful Village office. At this St. Patty's Day Warm Up, enjoy live music, complimentary light fare and drinks, a photo booth, and great camaraderie on the garden patio. This is an exceptional way to get connected with other like-minded professionals in downtown Carlsbad and find your next best referral or friend. No RSVP is necessary, but we do hope you will bring a fellow Carlsbad business owner or Village resident with you!
