“Maria is a true non-QM specialist,” says Jeff Massotti, Director, Regional Sales, Wholesale for CMS. “She knows how to custom fit her clients into the best programs for their borrowers. Her attention and knowledge to the guidelines, and ability to maneuver within the non-QM suite of products, speaks to her daily effectiveness and success. She is a true asset to not only the Wholesale East Region, but really for all of CMS.”
Maria Bekris-Selky got her start in the mortgage business 20 years ago. Coupled with her attention to detail, Maria’s vast experience is a big part of what makes her so adept at being able to expertly find the right product fit for her clients, and one of the main reasons she is identified as a non-QM Super Star.
“I provide a service of helping my brokers close tough loans,” she says. Maria considers it the most important thing she does for Carrington and our customers. “I provide the keys to getting deals done, and assist in getting their deals closed. Non-QM being my specialty, I love my brokers!” Maria’s love and commitment to her brokers showed once again in 2021 when she was recognized as a Peak Performer for the 4th straight year, highlighted with being the #1 non-QM unit and volume producer in Wholesale for 2021.
Over the years, Maria has learned that the best way to show her brokers that love is to let them know she has just as much at stake as they do. “Each loan is important because there are many people and moving parts trusting me with the most important transaction of their life,” she says. “My brokers know when I say I’m on it, I am 100 percent on it and won’t stop until I get that loan closed! Brokers trust me. So if I say: ‘Yes, we can do that,’ I will. And if I can’t, I will get that message over as quickly as possible. My word and reputation is everything.”
To stay motivated, Maria tries to remember that the work she puts in at the beginning of the month will show in her funding’s 60 days into her pipeline. Having that long view helps her remain vigilant and on top of her game. As for the best strategy she can share with Associates to maintain a customer-centric focus? She says the following is what separates her from the competition: “Stay focused; keep in front of brokers; and return emails within minutes.”
