Ayelet Gingold

Senior Specialist, Team Leader

Raising her 3 children in Cupertino for the past 13 years has given Ayelet a deep first-hand familiarity with the Cupertino School District. “Most of our clients consider giving their kids the best education available, a first priority. My own experience allows me to provide them with practical and field-proven information, which helps them make the right decisions”, says Ayelet. Ayelet and her family relocated to the Bay Area from Israel in August 2000. In Israel, she worked as a software engineer for Bay Networks and 3Com, but her deep passion has always been working with people. “People always used to tell me about their problems and asked for my advice. Being a Real Estate consultant, I am able to help my clients fulfill their homeownership dreams”, says Ayelet and adds “My job is my biggest hobby”, but she also likes to sing, make sculptures, read, cook, and be among friends.

Daniel Assadi


If there’s one person perfectly qualified for the team aspect of working for a busy real estate agency, it’s Daniel Assadi. Daniel loves sports, and as both a player and a coach, he knows the importance of talented people pulling together through the ups and downs to succeed and achieve a common goal. As such, he brings a serious team mindset to his position as a real estate agent with Sela Homes.

Daniel brings to Sela Homes both a degree in Finance from San Francisco State University and deep business management skills he’s learned from managing his family’s business for the last seven years. In fact, his entrepreneurial background, the potential for unlimited growth and opportunity, and the chance to meet and positively affect many people, are key factors that initially drew Daniel to a career in real estate.

Having lived in the San Jose area for most of his life, Daniel knows the communities and markets of the South Bay quite well, and being so involved in his family’s business gives him even deeper connections to the area. He has been described as honest, loyal, helpful, and kind, core traits he brings to his mission of helping people through the often complicated real estate experience by making the process as easy and stress-free as possible.

When not playing, coaching, or watching sports, or keeping himself in shape, Daniel often joins his cousin who hosts a podcast called “Take A Seat” where they talk about … what else … sports.
