My life passion is helping others achieve their dreams with home ownership. I specialize in working from my heart with clients who are purchasing or looking to refinance their home. Each transaction is special in its own way. That is why I have partnered with California Loan Associates, Inc. We are a small, family owned, boutique mortgage company based in Rocklin California. What this means to you is, I have great rates, a large variety of products and over 100 lenders to help me tailor a loan to fit your specific needs. I am not one of those "high pressure" types of salespeople. My intention is to make sure you are well informed of your options and have all the tools you need to purchase or refinance a home, either now or down the line. Think of me as your teammate. Lean on me when you have questions. I am here to help guide you through this process.

Marissa was great to work with. We found a home we loved on a Sunday and found out the sellers were reviewing offers the next day. We needed someone to assist us with obtaining a pre-approval on a Sunday and Marissa went above and beyond.

This was the most pleasant refinance experience we've ever had. We worked with Marissa Knasko, and she was very communicative, friendly, and always made us feel like she was working with and for us. We always knew exactly what was being asked of us and where we were in the refi process. The refi went smoothly and we're now further on our way to meeting our financial goals. Thank you, Marissa!

Marissa is nothing short of phenomenal! She communicates clearly and regularly, keeps her commitments and informs along the process. She is kind and level-headed when you have questions. She always maintained a professional demeanor and her character is both genuine and kind. You are lucky to have Marissa if she is your loan officer. I am already recommending her to people within my circle who are thinking of refinancing or pulling equity from their homes. In a climate where the future is uncertain for many and anxiety runs high, Marissa is an absolute salve.

Marissa was very friendly and easily to get along with, not to mention great at explaining things to a first time home buyer. She was professional and very responsive to our questions and concerns. Our home purchase went very smoothly, no doubt in large part because of Marissa.

Marissa is amazing! Buying a home is typically a very stressful process so having someone like her in our corner was one of the best parts of our home buying experience! She is extremely knowledgable, efficient, responsive and truly cares about the process going as smooth as possible. In my professional career, I personally have never met someone with her level of professionalism. Highly recommend her!

Since the beginning, from the first time we spoke on the phone, I know that she could help us with our loan. She is very approachable. She’s always reminded us what paperworks we needed to put together. If ever I needed to take out a loan in the future, I will definitely contact her again. I highly recommend her.
