Silicon Valley Real Estate Team, Janelle Boyenga, Eric Boyenga, Daunielle Doughty, Marsha Lociciero, Darcy Richardes, Licensed REALTORS in the state of California! (19 years experience)
Our experience purchasing a home with Boyenga team was fantastic. They helped us to close a great deal, according to our budget and within the area of our preference. They have a huge knowledge of the local Real Estate market in Silicon Valley, and as we were new to the area , we trusted them and were lucky to receive their wise advice. Darcy helped us even with great insights about schools, something that was critical for us to make the best choice. Janelle and Eric provided great support, supervising each of our offers and making sure that we were paying a fair price, taking care of our budget as if it was their own. We are very grateful to Boyenga team and highly recommend them for their ethics of work, deep knowledge and great commitment to their clients.
Eric and Janelle wonderful they helped me and my wife sell our home. They prepared and staged our home and made it show in its best light. Our home sold quickly and well above the asking price. Thank you and the team for all your help.
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $950K in Serra, Sunnyvale, CA.
Primary point of contact: Paula
Based on previous reviews, hired Eric and Janelle to sell my townhome in Sunnyvale. Initial interactions were fine.
But once I sign on the dotted line to hire them as my agents, it is really tough to get hold of Eric and Janelle either they are too busy or don't want to deal with clients who sell houses for 900k.
You would have to call to inquire each day what is going on (Maybe other people out there are more knowledgeable with real estate transaction, but this was my first and I had hoped for a more thorough follow up). I guess they are soo busy (assuming the number of houses they sold 84 last year)
They held just one open house and I was told to accept the first offer, suggesting that all other offers would be lower than that (which might be true, I don't know, but getting me into confidence is their job). I am sure if I were to buy a house through them, they would say please raise the offer as there 10 other buyers waiting in line.
This inspite selling the house in very good school district and at a time when everything is going above asking.
Each time of the process we were told to talk to Paula (who was fabulous, and helped us out a lot) but I would like to see and talk to agents whom I sign to do work with.
My advice to other sellers look for Real Estate agents whom are more personal and are there to offer good service after you sign them in.
Respectful, confident, secure, knowledgeable,kind, professional and a friend that had my back. I have only one other thing to say. I wish every one that works with me on such an important matter worked as well as this team. When Jenelle Boyenga walks on the scene you know she will do everything to make sure you are ok! I needed my home sold quickly!!! she did that in nine day's and O yes I got more than I expected for my home. Hint... just do every thing she tells you to do and you to will be very very happy. I will miss her and her husband.

Janelle and Eric were very professional and a pleasure to work with to sell my home. They know their stuff! They sold my home within 18 days of listing it.

Thank you so much Donna for taking the time to write a review we appreciate all the kind words. We are happy to help you get your next chapter drama free. Your ability to work as a team player enabled us to make the successful sale of your property look easy. Much happiness in your new property/hometown!
Eric & Janelle
In this competitive market, you need an agent who is on top of their game and knowledgable about the local market. Why not have two agents like this, instead of one and with Eric and Janelle you get the ultimate team. Not only do you get the best but Eric and Janelle go out of their way to make sure you do not feel like ‘just another client’. They provided excellent service from start to finish...and go beyond and above! If you are looking for a 5 star service, look no further the Boyenga Team is exactly what you are looking for! I praise them for helping me find my dream property!
It was a pleasure to work with Boyenga team, particularly Paula :) . Paula was a very kind person, helping me with a lot of time and dedication to get the house that I was looking for and not a house to buy quick. It took several houses to go around looking at the good and the bad and I didn't get the pressure with her to get a home which wasn't the right one for me. She always was trying to be sure that I was buying "our house".
Once we found it (honestly she found it), she took care of every single detail with the seller's Realtor to complete all paperwork, inspections and any requests to the sellers.
I am enjoying my house and we have only a big thanks to her because she was on our side at all times and we got "our house".
In the end, I also would like to thank Boyenga team, including Janelle and Eric.

Thank you, Ehsan!
We greatly appreciate your support and open lines of communication throughout the purchase. All your feedback on your wants/needs, allowed us to find you the perfect property. We wish you much happiness in your new home, and we are all here when you need us.

I was fortunate to meet Eric and Janelle through a friend when I was looking to purchase a home in Los Altos. I met Eric and Janelle at the office and they were very helpful in discussing the variety of neighborhoods and schools that were a concern to me and my husband. Being an extremely tough market in Los Altos, Janelle and the team helped me understand the competitive market conditions. Though the process took almost four months, we felt we were in good hands all the way through the sale, and though unfortunately we missed out on the first house, the 2nd house we were able to procure and under our proposed budget. Thank you, thank you for all your hard work. Sincerly Jessica M

Jenelle and Eric Boyenga are the most knowledgable and effective real estate professionals I have worked with in my many years of buying and selling properties. I recommend them to my friends and associates without hesitation and I recommend them to you. I will hire them again in the future.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.425M in Redwood City, CA.
The Boyenga team has led us through 3 successful Bay Area real estate transactions, the most recent a difficult sale of my elderly parent's home in Redwood City. Though the process was challenging and the desired timeline was short, Eric and his team was able to advise, negotiate, and lead the process to a highly successful sale.
We were kept informed throughout the process, and suggestions were made that always moved the sale forward in a positive way. There were numerous updates and repairs made to the home prior to the sale, and the Boyenga Team contractor was responsible, neat, and responsive to our concerns or needs.
The Boyenga Team also assisted with the sale of my mother in law's home in Willow Glen in 2011. As with the recent sale, they exceeded our expectations and negotiated a prompt and profitable sale of the home.
The Boyenga Team also helped us with a complicated purchase of a property during a very stressful time in our lives. Even though the other party was challenging to work with, they kept the process moving and the result was very favorable for us.
We HIGHLY recommend the Boyenga Team and we appreciate greatly the assistance they've provided to us over the years.
