Fast Listing Results! I had my home listed with a local Realtor for 6 months, while they were very professional, experienced and nice, they don't get how to market and find large numbers of buyers to show a home from online marketing. They only showed it to about 12 people including neighbors in Open Houses and appointments in the 6 months they had it listed. So I searched for another Realtor and found the Boyenga Team on Zillow and noticed how many homes they sold so far this year. They looked like real performers who walked their talk and I thought if anyone would get lots of traffic to see my house they most likely would. I'm pleased to say they did! First Open House was it was raining cats and dogs but a shocking 70 people had showed up with umbrellas! My house was under contract within a few weeks after that at full price. It closed without any issues and I could not be more pleased with all their services.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.475M in Ortega, Sunnyvale, CA.
I would like to acknowledge the most incredible team of real estate professionals, I have ever had the good fortune to work with!
Eric and Janelle Boyenga and their team helped my brother, and myself prepare my Mother's home for sale, and we could not be more pleased. Because it was an estate sale, they were very sensitive our needs and bought multiple skills to the table that went far and beyond our expectations.
They had a complete understanding of the property they were promoting, and I am sure it was that expertise that helped us to get much more than our original listing price.
If you are looking for professionals with skill,charm, and grace you would do well to choose the Boyenga Team to help in sell your home.

We called the Boyenga team after seeing that they had a lot of sales in the area but had no idea what to expect from them. We didn't know if they would be just a nice team, pushy or just good at sales but after an initial phone conversation, we scheduled a meeting and were so glad we did. The Boyengas aren't just good at what they do, they are GREAT at what they do. Real estate in the 21st century and in the Bay Area is a different kind of ball game. They know how to work in this market and they work very hard. Their team is polished, punctual and extremely organized. They worked with us to make our selling experience superior. Yes, it was that exceptional. We sold our house with great ease and they walked us through every detail.
There were so many reasons why they were excellent, but one thing we felt they were experts on, was knowing how to sell our house in the Bay Area that is filled with tech savvy people. If you want to know what they do exactly, call them if you're even just starting to think about selling your home. You would know the difference if you had ever interviewed or used another realtor. We interviewed many sales teams but their team stood out clearly above the rest. Through the entire selling process until even after close, we loved working with them and their whole team. We don't often take the time to write reviews unless it's something that is outstanding. There are people that do their job and do it well - and that's something that should be expected - but the Boyenga team is clearly above those standards. It was a pleasure to do business with them!
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $1.025M in De Anza, Sunnyvale, CA.
We know we made an excellent decision when we hired the Boyenga Team to sell our home in Sunnyvale.
We didn’t find out about them from one of their close friends or relatives, or by someone we work with who knows them socially. We ended up listing with the Boyenga Team because our research led us to believe they’re pro’s who sell a lot of property in our area – and they are.
All of the people we worked with on the Boyenga Team were extremely helpful and responsive, making sure nothing fell through the cracks. Eric and Janelle are both accomplished Realtors individually, but they have complementary skills that make them even stronger together.
They know the local market and it’s history, which is critical to properly setting the listing price and determining the selling strategy.
They know how to give a listing maximum exposure – not just to the public online, but also to all of the other Realtors who are working with prospective buyers. Their Realtors open house was extremely well attended, and not just for the free food.
They know the whole complex process and paper work really well, because they sell a lot of property, every year, year after year.
They have an extended team of service providers who can help with anything that needs to be done with your home before you go on the market, do it well, and do it on short notice.
We’re really glad that we didn’t waste our time and money on amateurs when it didn’t cost any more to work with professionals, and we got great results.

Janelle & Eric are a real estate dream team. Why list with an individual realtor when you can have an entire team helping you? Janelle & Eric laid out a plan to sell our Sunnyvale home complete with a timeline with specific dates for each required activity. The plan ended with a date for an Open House, then a date when we would receive offers for our home. Their plan was executed flawlessly - we received multiple offers for our home (on the exact date they outlined 5 weeks earlier), and broke a record price for our neighborhood (yes, they predicted this too). Professional, diligent, responsive, passionate and knowledgeable are words that come to mind to describe them. I would strongly recommend Janelle and Eric (and the rest of the Boyenga Team) to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Wow, we are touched by your appreciation. Janelle and our team feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to represent you.
Without your collaboration and hard work there is no way we would have had such successful results. Wishing you and your family much happiness in your new home.
Eric, Janelle & the Boyenga Team
Janelle and Eric helped us to purchase our first home 9 years ago. We were very particular about what we were looking for. Janelle and Eric knew the area very well and helped steer us towards purchasing the right home for us.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.35M in Mountain View, CA.
I hired Eric and Janelle Boyenga to help purchase my house in Mountain View last year, a decision that has literally change my life. Not only do I now get to wake up in a beautiful house that satisfy every one of my needs (nice neighborhood, great school district, close to work), knowing that my home value has at least jumped 15% in 1 year alone has constantly put smile on my face. I know that in such a hot market, NONE OF THESE COULD BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT THE BOYENGA TEAM. From the very first time when I met Eric, until the moment that Paula, their assistant, informed me on the phone that my offer was accepted, the Boyenga team had done everything they could to make sure I was financially qualified to purchase the house, psychologically prepared for the bid and physically comfortable with the new place!
Special note on Janelle since I see different opinions on her from other viewers. Based on my experience of having her as my buyer agent, Janelle is a direct communicator and fast thinker who always tries to present the reality of the current market in a straight forward way, even if her analysis might not be what you want to hear. Plus, having Janelle on your side means having a strong negotiator who is willing and capable of fighting for you in some of most competitive markets!
Eric, on the other hand, had really impressed me with his detailed marketing analysis and unique strategies to present me as what he called a "whole package" to the seller. I guess the final result speaks louder than anything else: The Boyenga team helped me, a first time home buyer, win the house with my very first bid.
We sold my mother’s house in Sunnyvale in 2013. We used the Boyenga Team as our agents. We interviewed 3 agents and decided on the Boyenga Team and we were very pleased with the results. Janella described the plan for getting the house ready, the timeline, her expectations of us as sellers and what she would do as our agent. Everything went as planned. The house was ready to sell on time, the house was marketed and sold exactly as was described to us. Janella kept us in the loop as the process of updating, marketing and the selling as it unfolded. She promptly returned phone calls. The rest of the Boyenga team was helpful in executing paperwork. It was the fastest and easiest sale of a house I have ever experienced.
We have had many dealings with Janelle and Eric Boyenga, and recommended them often to friends and family because they are really good at what they do.
Our first experience was listing a investment property with them for sale. We found them on an internet site where we picked them by their profile. When we got their number we were shocked to discover that we knew them – Eric grew up on the same cul-de-sac as our home. The sale went smoothly. We did a 10 exchange and purchased the two homes they located for us which have been excellent rentals.
We bought our current and final home with them- it's perfect.
When we decided to sell our home last Spring we listed with them and got an excellent price
We own properties in othe cities and states and have worked with many realtors, they are the best!

Thank you so much for the wonderful review, Janelle and I feel so fortunate to represent you and Lance and get to know you. You are amazing role models in your professional and personal life. We can't thank you enough for helping our business grow.
Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Willow Glen, San Jose, CA.
We used Eric and Janelle to buy our first house/condo in the hyper Bay Area market in 2005, as well as complete the sale prior to our relocation in 2013. The most important thing that they bring to the table is they understand the market, and how the dynamics change on what seems to be a weekly basis in the bay area. By staying on top of the changing landscape, they are able to best capture the opportunities, and get the most favorable outcomes for their clients. I was stunned at how much action we got on the sale of our condo, and I attribute much of it to Eric and Janelle's work. Our condo sale set the new "comp" for the complex, and there has not been a higher sale in the 9 months since.
Janelle has strong opinions, but listens to feedback, stays within budgets, and gives an honest opinion. I did work with their "team" but if there was something important to discuss, I was always able to quickly get to Eric & Janelle. They did great work for us, and let's just say they didn't exactly get rich on our sale given it was a relo with lots of extra overhead... yet they still delivered great results.
