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.

Pete Ruiz
Keller Williams Coastal Estates
About Pete

I am a native to California for over 30 years. I am a former baseball player of the Boston Red Sox organization. I had a playing career of 7 years, all with Boston. Baseball is still a big part of my life and has taught me so many valuable lessons in life and business. My work ethic is better than anyone else's out there., I am a problem solver who thrives under pressure, no matter how high the stakes might be. I am results driven and have a proven track record of continuous success. As a realtor, I take all the skills I learned from baseball and bring them to the business world. I will fight and compete harder than anyone for my clients. I will always give my best effort paired with my best focus. No one can match my loyalty, competitiveness and willingness to make sure I get the job done. I can guarantee you that no one in this business can match my drive and determination to ensure that you are truly satisfied. Buying or selling a home is a huge part of any person's or family's life. You need someone in your corner with knowledge, experience and a tenacity to make sure that YOU win. I am that person! In my free time I love to cook, play all sports, coach youth baseball, play guitar and spend time with family and loved ones. Family is extremely important to me and always will be. All of the people I work with I treat like family, because they eventually become family.
