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.

Michael Bloch
Sereno Group
About Michael

My goal in working with clients is to develop long-term relationships and earn their referrals and repeated business by being their trusted Real Estate adviser. I have built my business one client at a time through a combination of hard work, honesty, and focus on ethics and professionalism. Extraordinary customer service is a top priority to me. I work aggressively and diligently behind the scenes to negotiate favorable terms for my clients and solve any challenges that come up during the process of buying or selling property. By breaking down the process into simple and clear steps, my goal is for my clients to have a smooth and pleasant experience. For me, the greatest satisfaction is when I am able to assist a client in accomplishing their goals and home dreams. My first career as a local elementary school teacher and now, a Realtor, has allowed me to take that same passion for helping others into my real estate career. I pride myself on my communication and listening skills. Outstanding customer service is my absolute top priority. I am a realtor by trade, a native Californian, and have been a resident of Santa Cruz since ’91. My wife Alissa and I live in the Pleasure Point neighborhood of east Santa Cruz. We are the proud parents of a growing family, Bowen and Judah, and we enjoy all types of sports and outdoor activities – surfing, hiking, backyard BBQs, and Giants games are amongst our favorites. Soy bilingüe y estoy orgulloso de ofrecer mis servicios a clientes que hablan español.

He’s also a Self Expression and Leadership Program coach. Ed’s favorite definition of SUCCESS is the famous poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson: “To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Day 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.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Day 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 Day Valley, CA.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Day 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.
Read more
What is the average real estate agent commission for agents in Day Valley?
