About Ben

At Strock Real Estate, we strive to exceed your expectations of a Realtor. We always do business in an honest manner with the highest level of integrity.

Strock Real Estate opened its doors in 2007 and operates as a team. By supporting each other, we can offer our customers a higher quality of service than would be achievable as individuals. With more than one set of ears, we are always paying attention to the small details, so we achieve an overall greater performance. We treat all of those we interact within a manner that would make our parents’ proud. Our commitment to our clients extends far beyond the close of escrow, and we pride ourselves on the long-standing relationships that we develop with our clients.

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.

Jessica Wallace
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
About Jessica

I was lucky enough to be born in Santa Cruz and enjoy all the benifts of growing up here. I attended local schools and then went on to graduate from the University of California at Davis with a degree in Art History and Spanish. I also spent a year abroad studying in Granada, Spain, I worked as a Tour Guide in Rome, Italy and taught Engllish in Buenos Aires, Argentina. These experiences have developed my understanding of the world and other cultures and enhanced my proficiency in the Spanish language. I started my Real Estate career as an assistant and used that time to really learn the business and develop the skills that are essential to be a conscientious and knowledgable Realtor. I obtained my Real Estate license in 2004. My depth of knowledge about the area and Real Estate will make your transaction easy and enjoyable. I take pride in my attention to detail and put all my efforts into understanding your needs. I constantly educate myself on the latest trends in the mark
