Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

I was born and raised in Trumbull, Connecticut. After graduating from the University of Connecticut with a Bachelors' Degree in Fine Arts, I moved to California to pursue my dreams in professional theater. I had the good fortune of working with many local theater companies.

Before joining OmniSquare Real Estate in 2006, I spent over 10 years as Consumer Marketing professional for Sunset Publishing Corporation. During my tenure, I realized my love for the West, especially here in Northern California. The diverse culture, abundant recreational and employment opportunities, spectacular climate, and casual lifestyle are what make it an ideal place to call "home".

My husband and I have four children and understand the dynamics of a busy family. Despite the hectic schedule, we wouldn't want it any other way! Through my kids, I've continued my love of the performing arts. My husband and I sit on the board of the Campbell Children's Theatre Foundation; a non profit organization dedicated to ensuring the continuation of performing arts in the local schools. We are passionate about the arts and their contribution to our community and society as a whole.

      01/11/2013 - user7178289
      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $625K in Cambrian Park, San Jose, CA.
      We recently bought our first home with Jalayne's help.

      She helped us understand the industry, find a good mortgage broker, gave us frequent updates on our housing search, and helped everything go smoothly and quickly.

      She listened to what we wanted, and helped us refine our search, view homes, and close on our house.

      I can't recommend her enough. She was patient, and went out of her way to help us find a place we could call home.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.3M in Los Gatos, CA.
      My wife and I decided to start searching for a new home when we learned that we were going to have a baby! Neither one of us had owned a home before and so we were inexperienced. After getting a grasp of our budget, next we needed a good realtor who could guide us through the entire process from start to finish. A colleague of mine recommended Jalayne Forrester and so we contacted her.

      Jalayne far exceeded our expectations as a realtor and eventually became a great friend. I can recall Jalayne offering to meet us near our home to chat about our requirements. Jalayne quickly understood what we were looking for and translated this information into some automated search results. She sacrificed her time to match our schedule on weekday nights and weekends to look for homes together. Sometimes she even offered to pick us up from our office when we did not have a vehicle available.

      After three months and three separate offers, we finally entered into contract on a new home. However, our newborn baby had plans to come at this same time. Jalayne took on so much more work when my wife went into labor. She stayed at the home on our behalf during the five hour inspection, and handled the negotiations with the seller’s agent perfectly. During the closing process, her wealth of knowledge shined and her guidance eliminated much of the typical closing headaches. She even gave recommendations for other key partners including a general contractor, lenders, insurance agents, etc.

      Jalayne is a wonderful realtor but more importantly a wonderful person. I’m happy to recommend her services to anyone in the Bay Area looking for a new home. We would not be in our new home without her help.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $650K in West San Jose, San Jose, CA.
      Jalayne originally helped my husband find our rental house. Three years later, when we were ready to buy, we contacted Jalayne again. We thought it would be a short meeting to see if she could work with us, but Jalayne came to the appointment with a bunch of listings printed out. She went off some very basic information my husband provided when scheduling the appointment but was totally prepared with listings at different price points. That afternoon she even took us to see some of those houses. We were super impressed. We looked at about 25 houses over the next 5 days and made an offer on one within the week. It was a pleasure working with Jalayne. She definitely had our best interests at heart and worked hard for us.  MoreLess
