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.

About Boyenga

“A real estate transaction is like an orchestra, if the many components are all in harmony the real estate transaction just like the music in an orchestra is beautiful. And just like an orchestra no one person can play all the instruments, and that’s why I’ve assembled the best orchestra in real estate.” Eric Boyenga As one of the largest financial transactions a family will make in their lifetime it is critical the “orchestra” required to get the right results for the sale or purchase of a home to be in harmony. From marketing, neighborhood knowledge, negotiations, escrow, and protecting clients from legal exposure no one agent is capable of playing all the instruments. Because of the vast complexity and demands of the modern real estate transaction, Eric and Janelle Boyenga set out to create the team approach to serving the real estate seller and buyer.

From marketing experts, legal experts, and local agents all in harmony as part of the Boyenga Team our clients receive a level of service and detail unparalleled in real estate.

Their clients appreciate their enthusiasm, integrity and personal approach. “Real estate, like life, is all about getting the details right,” Janelle says. “That means understanding the client’s needs and hopes, that the client knows their choices, and that we work together efficiently to achieve the transaction they expect when choosing their real estate team. There are many people involved along the way – family, other agents, legal advisors, escrow officers, lenders – and a major part of my job is to orchestrate the events which lead to a smooth sale and closing. But most importantly every client is treated like family, and we take pride in the long term relationships we have developed with our clients over the years.” From working to define a client’s vision and managing those expectations, to negotiating with tenacity while keeping in close communication, the Boyenga Team is well-known for their tireless determination that ensures her clients meet their goals, regardless of how complex. Over the years our team has been coined as the “Property Nerds” because of our love and passion for residential real estate.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Los Gatos?
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.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Los Gatos?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Los Gatos 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 in Los Gatos 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.
