Jayson Madani
ROOM Real Estate
About Jayson

Jayson Madani was merely a middle schooler at a job fair when an attending real estate agent told him unequivocally that, everyone should own a home. As the founder and leader of the Madani Team, Jayson's dedication to that realization is the foundation of his team of leading agents, the backbone of his business is undoubtedly client referrals. Specializing in the Santa Cruz region, Jayson firmly believes that a referral is the best gauge of his effectiveness, and as a business operating on a seventy percent referral basis, that effectiveness is solidly proven. Cutting-edge, aggressive, and creative marketing has played a large role in Jayson's success story. From those hard-to-sell listings to those hard-to-find buys, Jayson's expertise goes far beyond the cut and dry of tract home sales. When it matters that your agent understands the ins and outs of building permits, flood zones, and well water quality, Jayson has the expertise to guide clients through the complexities of any property purchase or listing with exceptional, client-centered focus. Jayson prides himself on his consistent effort to turn transactions into relationships, which means that when the unexpected, post-close question arises, he's as happy to help as he was on day one. It means that he's not only ready to aid you in acquiring the property that puts you in your dream neighborhood, but he's equally ready to line you up with the quality contractors that can transform your hopes into a real home. It's his available and committed outlook that results in returned clients and consistent referrals. With Jayson, escrow isn't the end of the relationship. Raised in the region where he's now raising his own family, Jayson is a third generation member of the Santa Cruz community. Jayson is committed to giving back to his community, which he does through donations and fundraising for multiple local charitable organizations, with Big Brothers and Big Sisters and Second Harvest Food Bank being two of the beneficiaries of his philanthropy. When he's not working, Jayson enjoys spending time with his wife and children. Looking to the future, Jayson's plans are simple: to continue building his team and growing his business, while sacrificing none of the stellar client service that has become synonymous with his name. HomeLight has information on 275 of Jayson's transactions since 2009, 90 of which were in the past two years. Jayson typically represents the buyer (53% of the time), but has also completed 129 seller transactions during this period.

Matt McGinnis
Pacific Keys Realty
About Matt

With local market expertise and uncompromising negotiation skills, Matt McGinnis provides his clients with comprehensive real estate services. A natural problem-solver, Matt works to find creative solutions to even the most complex challenges. Considering himself a trusted real estate advisor first and foremost, Matt commits to the people he serves by understanding each individual’s situation and building relationships with his clients that transcend expectations before, during, and after the transaction. Long before entering the world of real estate, Matt had learned the importance of integrity, financial freedom, and a strong work ethic from his family while growing up in Olympia, Washington. He purchased his first investment property in 2009, and by 2010, he was a licensed agent enjoying a career uniquely suited to his entrepreneurial spirit and passion for helping people. Matt rose quickly through the industry ranks. By 2013, he was managing an office within a large, globally-known brokerage, and after a short span of five years, Matt took over a regional position managing the brokerage’s top-producing branch and overseeing two other offices. During his management tenure, he obtained his broker’s license and continued to help his family, friends, and referrals buy and sell homes. In 2018, Matt decided to make a change and headed back to full-time sales. In addition to his many five-star reviews on Zillow, Matt also received the San Diego Association of Realtors® Circle of Excellence 40 Under 40 Award from 2017 to 2020. He founded Pacific Keys Realty in 2021. Driven by the belief that luxury real estate is not a specific price point but an experience, Matt tailors his approach when it comes to helping families buy, sell, or invest. Demonstrating the highest degree of trustworthiness and respect, Matt cares for each venture as if it were his own. He leads with patience and attentive listening, and he stays in alignment with his clients’ needs by providing true value through an authentic connection and real estate education. In his spare time, Matt volunteers for causes that have intimately affected his life. He travels as often as his busy schedule allows, but his favorite way to relax and recharge from his active real estate career is by spending quality time with his family and friends, especially soaking up every moment he can with his young son, Finn.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Carmel Valley?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Carmel Valley?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Carmel Valley, CA.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Carmel Valley?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
