"From the moment Maya and Jason took on a project they saw it through from conception to completion."

In tough and uncertain times with the onset of Covid-19 and the ensuing shutdown, we could not have had a better team batting for us. Their steady work and positive attitude made everything stress free. From the moment Maya and Jason took on a project they saw it through from conception to completion. It is never merely a job for them. It is a passion. They are involved in every aspect of the preparation. They pay attention to even seemingly trivial details to make the sale effortless for the sellers, even if it’s a quick dash to the hardware store or putting back the bins from the curb in our absence. Maya and Jason are totally honest and refreshingly straightforward. We had already moved out of state but they walked us through every step by phone , text and mail. Their high level of experience just comes through. Above all, Maya and Jason are not mere realtors, they are wonderful people full of empathy. They assume positive intent with all parties which made the whole transaction harmonious.

"If you are looking for a team who knows the market and will truly have your best interest at heart, we highly recommend Maya and Jason."

If you are looking for a team who knows the market and will truly have your best interest at heart, we highly recommend Maya and Jason. Our house in Los Altos Hills sold, and we were worried because we hadn’t found our next home yet. We inquired about a property for lease so we would have somewhere to go and met Maya in the process. The property had just been rented, but in a matter of days, Maya showed us “coming soon,” “just-on-the-market,” and “significant-price-reduction” properties in our areas of interest. Just the beginning of her Maya Magic. Less than 2 months later – during the COVID-19 crisis - we are living in a beautiful home in Portola Valley Ranch that we just love. Maya, and her business partner (and son), Jason, have continued to be amazing. After the sale, they are still helping us find the right people to make the desired changes to our home, even without being asked. Thank you Maya and Jason!

"When it came to buying a new home in the City, a process that seemed daunting in such a competitive market, Maya and Jason were invaluable."

When it came to buying a new home in the City, a process that seemed daunting in such a competitive market, Maya and Jason were invaluable. First of all, they listen. They understood exactly what I was looking for and streamlined the process, showing me only the properties that really met my criteria. There was no waste of time. They found me just the right house in the right location, in record time. Due to their years of experience, they knew all the nitty gritty questions to ask the seller before I made an offer. I really don't think I could have done it all without their help. They're the best!

"Working with Maya and Jason was a pleasure!"

My wife and I were selling a home in May 2018. We chose Maya and Jason as our realtors to sell the property. With their years of knowledge in the real estate business, their ideas and contacts, we were able to stage the home and show the property at its best. Working with Maya and Jason was a pleasure! Because of their easy and professional manner we developed a great friendship. The property sold quickly and at a superb price!! Thank you Maya and Jason for your guidance, patience and expertise. We are so happy that we used your services.

"We could not have found a house without their help"

Jason and Maya's insight and feedback were extremely helpful and I am truly grateful for all of the time spent. We could not have found a house without their help, and I feel extremely lucky to have been able to work with the both of them. I look forward to working with them again!

"I recommend Maya and Jason Sewald as realtors without hesitation!"

I was first introduced to Maya and Jason through my brother who worked with them about 8 years ago. Based on his great reference, we worked with them to sell my aunt’s home in Menlo Park. Maya stated clearly that they were a ‘full service’ realtor and they really meant it!!! Living in Los Angeles, it would have been very difficult for me to organize all the cleaning and moving that was needed to get the home ready for sale. Maya handled everything and it went so smoothly! She helped us find an excellent packer and mover (who we still use from time to time); arranged for a reputable Estate dealer to sell select pieces; helped us coordinate with a church group who came to take what they wanted; and supervised cleaners to clean out the rest and leave the place spotless. She then got several competing bids and sold the home for above asking price in about a week! We were so pleased that we worked with Maya and Jason again to sell my mother’s home a few years later in Los Altos. Maya worked her same magic as she did for my aunt’s home. In addition to the full-service we enjoyed before, Maya and Jason facilitated needed appliance upgrades, landscaping and drainage repairs. This home had some design challenges, so they also staged my mother’s home in a very effective and affordable way, and had concept plans developed for an additional bathroom and closet to show buyers what was possible with the property. They sold our home in a few weeks, and for more than we thought we’d get! Both Maya and Jason are knowledgeable, experienced, organized, principled at all they do, and very clear in communicating the fine points of buying and selling property. Moreover, they are great listeners, are dedicated to their clients, and are a joy to work with. I have met many realtors over the years, but Maya and Jason stand out as the most impressive team I have had the pleasure to meet. I have now known Maya for over 6 years and enjoyed working with her and Jason through two home sales. I have had the good fortune to witness them excelling both times and would sell more homes with them if only I had more property to sell or buy! I recommend Maya and Jason Sewald as realtors without hesitation!

"They strive to go beyond the “normal” representation"

As a buyer and seller of many homes over the years, my experiences with realtors have generally been positive. It was not until working with Maya and Jason at Ovation Real Estate that I realized how high they set the bar for excellence as real estate agents. Purchasing or selling a home is such a personal and emotional endeavor, and their sincere motivation to make the seller/buyer feel comfortable, well-represented, and important was inherent from the beginning. They strive to go beyond the “normal” representation while ensuring that the client is informed, professionally advocating for their clients, and working tirelessly and “hands-on” to enhance the marketability of the properties. Engaging Maya and Jason to represent me was a decision that served me well, and with their years of expertise in the industry, I would strongly recommend them to any potential buyer or seller. In a world where business relationships have become very superficial, be assured that their clients are very important to them for reasons that go far beyond business.

"We couldn’t be more delighted"

We are repeat clients, because we know we can rely on Maya and Jason! They have always been very thorough and followed up on every step of the process, and expedited matters when time is of the essence. In addition, we’ve encountered several “unusual” curves and unpleasant surprises from the other parties, but Maya and Jason always kept us calm and worked through the problems with us. We couldn’t be more delighted.

"We recommend them without reservation to anyone who wishes to purchase or sell Bay Area real estate"

Maya and Jason have represented us extraordinarily well when we purchased and sold real estate in Menlo Park. They are experts on the existing market on the Peninsula and are very knowledgeable, efficient, supportive and professional in navigating issues that rise in a very complicated market. We recommend them without reservation to anyone who wishes to purchase or sell Bay Area real estate.

"You were so helpful and professional throughout that process that we knew we’d be in touch with you immediately when we moved on from that home"

Maya, you represented us in 1997 when we bought the house in Menlo Park. You were so helpful and professional throughout that process that we knew we’d be in touch with you immediately when we moved on from that home. Thanks for staying in touch; twenty years later, you were the first call we made when we decided it was time to go! Working with you AND Jason, who we have also gotten to know in recent years, was such a pleasure. You both always had our needs and wishes in mind in preparing our home to go on the market and worked tirelessly to help us with preparations – even long distance, as we moved out of state during the process. From our initial phone call to the closing, you and Jason were easy to reach and quick to give us great advice and kept us perfectly informed every step of the way. Over our years in Menlo Park, we recommended you to friends in the area and they too have been pleased with your assistance. It’s been a pleasure to be able to work with you again.

"They are definitely realtors par excellence!"

Maya and Jason sold our home for us. Our experience with them was excellent! They knew our neighborhood and set a good price for the home. They positioned and advertised it well. It sold quickly and everything went smoothly, and we were very pleased with the results. (We received 5 offers, all over the asking price.) They were extremely helpful in getting the house ready for sale. They knew who to call to do all that was needed to prepare the house. They kept us well informed at all times, and consulted us at every step. We enjoyed working with them both. They work together very well. They are definitely realtors par excellence!
