Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $850K in Rose Garden, San Jose, CA.
I referred Eric and Janelle to a family friend who wanted to sell their investment property in San Jose. They had a tight timeline to get the home sold. The team were able to get the home prepared and on the market quickly. The end result was a successful sale in less than a week.
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $875K in Lakewood, Sunnyvale, CA.
The Boyenga team is great. I live in Vancouver, B.C. and my father decided to sell his investment Townhome in Sunnyvale where I used to live. I had a bad experience with my previous Real Estate agent that bought me a home in San Jose. I actually found Janelle on Zillow while checking for the Town home Zillow price. I saw the Boyenga team pop up on the side. That was a year or so ago. I contacted Janelle and she spent time well before to get the home ready to list. I eventually came down to Sunnyvale and we listed the property. We just sold our home and did not even have to be there. Janelle listed, and got the home staged, cleaned, painted, and more. She was able to get us the price we wanted. Even though the market had slowed down. She has proved herself. So I will list my home in Meridian avenue with her as well..

We greatly appreciate your thoughtful review. Without you working with us as a team and being such a good communicator, we would not have such a smooth and successful outcome. Thank you again, we feel was a privilege to represent you and your father.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.225M in West San Jose, San Jose, CA.
We listed our Eichler house in San Jose with Eric and Janelle Boyenga and their team because they seemed like the best blend of professional expertise and readiness to follow our priorities. Over the months of preparing our house for market, we never felt pressured to do more or less than we were ready for, and we never lacked for guidance when we asked for it. When there were glitches—a major fire in our neighborhood, a premature offer that was then withdrawn, a seeming softening in the market—the Boyengas responded to every unexpected development while still staying on track with the basic selling plan. Janelle, our primary contact, was steady, positive, and, above all, available whenever we had a question or concern. Paula, the team coordinator, kept the critical documents moving smoothly. And the Boyengas’ connections to service providers were essential in making the house sale-ready. In the end, they brought us to a completed sale on schedule and above the asking price. From start to finish, we could not have asked for more.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $725K in Half Moon Bay, CA.
I had the distinct pleasure of working with Janelle to sell two houses, one in Half Moon Bay and one in Berkeley. Janelle demonstrated herself extremely knowledgeable and accurate when it came to pricing and process, and she navigated very significant challenges on both deals with ease and grace – even going so far as to find financing for a buyer when their loan fell through threatening to undo the deal. My only regret is I have no more houses to sell as it was a sincere pleasure working with her, and she receives no less than my highest recommendation as a Seller’s Agent.
The Boyenga Team helped us buy a home in Los Gatos. Janelle and Eric were great to work with and helped us find the perfect home in the neighborhood we were looking for. We are so happy to be in our home and Janelle has been great about helping us with different vendors for updating our property.

I cannot say enough good things about the Boyenga Team. They have the perfect mix of professionalism, smarts, and personality. They know the Sunnyvale area inside-out and know exactly where the market is at any given moment. At the same time, they understand that a home sale is not just a financial transaction but also a big life moment worthy of treating clients with care. Their staying power is proof. You will have no regrets choosing Eric and Janelle. Our experience could not have been better.
I wanted to thank Eric and Janelle for making the process of selling my home so enjoyable and easy. I needed to sell my home because I was relocating, so I interviewed three agents, and found Eric and Janelle to be a cut above the other two agents. They proceeded to lay out a timeline from start to finish and did not miss a beat. The end result was a successful sale well over asking with a free 30 day rent back. I could not ask for more! Thank you
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.05M in West San Jose, San Jose, CA.
We are enormously grateful that the Boyenga team took us on! It has been a pleasure to work with a highly professional and courteous team like the Boyenga team. At our first meeting, Janelle and Eric came completely prepared with research, analysis and offered down to earth honest recommendations. Also, their internal team work is impressive; offering consistent direction, cohesive responses and timely outcomes. We found them to be empathetic and understanding at all times. True professionals, working in collaboration at all times.
Their gift is their vision, high standards and the well-earned trustworthiness they impart.
Eric and Janelle, turned around our home in Campbell area, San Jose, from a listing that had no offers; to one open house with multiple offers in less than a week. They managed the work of re-listing our home, preparing and marketing extraordinarily well. We had already moved out of State; essentially we handed them the house key and they took care of every detail. They work very hard, yet present a simple and clean outline of everything. They make hard look simple and easy, which is quite an excellent art form.
The sale far exceeded our expectations.
We hoped for relief; the Boyenga team provided us amazement.
We highly recommend the Boyenga team for all real estate work.
Our family member has already enlisted their services and we shall continue to be their cheerleaders.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review, Janelle and I feel it a privilege to represent you. You and your husband were amazing clients who worked with us as a team, and without your teamwork we could and would not have had such amazing results.
Thank you again for allowing us the opportunity to work with you.

I appreciate Eric & Janelle for making the sale of my Condominium seamless and smooth. They were professional from the start, they prepared it, marketed it and negotiated the sale and exceeded my expectations greatly. Thanks again for making such the selling of my property so comfortable.
Sold a home in 2014 in Riverside Grove, Boulder Creek, CA 95006.
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.
