  • Boyenga helped me buy a home

      After being referred by a co-worker, we recently worked with Janelle to buy a house in San Jose. Their team was quite exceptional, and we couldn't have done it without them. Highly connected, responsive and knowledgable, they landed us in a home we wouldn't have had a chance at had we not been working with them. In this competitive market we found the Boyenga team to be indispensable.

    • Boyenga listed and sold my home

        Eric is an outstanding Realtor with excellent communication and people skills. He and his team gave me a plan to follow and executed the plan perfectly.

          Janelle and Eric delivered what they promised and more. They were very professional and were there through every step. Not only did they exceed my expectations, the made the process very easy on me.

          Janelle and her team assisted me with selling my home in Sunnyvale and here are my lessons: 1. If you wish to get a premium price for your home - HIRE HER! 2. If you need a knowledgeable person that can guide you through the process - HIRE HER! 3. If you are looking for someone to guarantee that your interests are well protected - HIRE HER! 4. If you are looking for someone that tells you Nothing but the truth - HIRE HER! 5. If you are looking for a babysitter that will overpromise by telling you that your shack is a palace - DO NOT HIRE HER! Thanks again to Paula, Daunielle , Eric and the rest of the B team

          Janelle & Eric Thank you again for all your fantastic help with the purchase of my house. I am so very happy there and it would never have been possible to get the place without you two. I hope everything is going well for you. Here is just a little thank you for all your hard work.

          We are so happy we chose the Boyengas when buying our home. We had quite a few requirements for the home (larger than standard lot size, quiet street, 2 stories, guest room with bath for in-laws). We also didn't have much time. There was nothing on the market meeting all of our criteria so we were assuming we would have to compromise on something in order to move in by the time school starts. However, the Boyengas reached out to all their Sunnyvale connections and found a house matching all of our criteria that we were able to buy off the market and avoid the bidding wars. We are beyond thrilled!

          In today's market so many of the agents I have dealt with do not call me back, let the clients wait a couple days for the response to offer their offers after accepting an offer. Thank you Eric and Janelle for your professionalism. Your team followed up and kept me apprised of the offers outstanding and even though my clients offer did not accepted. You guys deserves a 5 stars.

        • Boyenga listed and sold my home

            Brandon and the Boyenga Team were a delight to work with! He was extremely responsive and willing to show us a property at any time! He is also very knowledgable and answered our millions of questions. He has a fun and bright personality that will make the home buying process way more fun. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with our experience with Brandon Stovall and the Boyenga Team!

          • Boyenga helped me buy a home

              Jen and Andrew made our first home buying experience an absolute breeze. My husband and I both work random and long hours which made scheduling difficult to search for a home ourselves. Plus we have large dogs..always a tricky ordeal if HOA is involved. Luckily we found an incredible home without the extras. Working with the Boyenga was not only consistently informative and helpful but so fun to get creative ideas from Masters in the biz. The relationship you will build with this team is so inviting and reduces the anxiety that comes with every step in the home buying process. We are blessed with a VA loan and again, the team was so informative and helpful which made a seamless transition thru the process. There is always something to be said for a family run business and you could not be disappointed with this group, and at the least you will walk away informed and driven toward a goal to find a purchase that works for you.

            • I owned a duplex in San Jose, but I live out of state. I contacted Boyenga Team and arranged to have Paula Wells assist and represent me in the sale of the property. The front/main unit of the property was very worn out since the same tenants had been there 35 years. Paula recommended that I have it remodeled before putting the listing up. We discussed what return on that investment I could expect and she advised it would return substantially more than the money invested. She was absolutely right. Paula agreed to find contractors she knew and had worked with before, get bids, and then supervise the project. She had her interior designer make recommendations about what work should be done (basically a full remodel of the whole unit.) I was nervous about undertaking such a big project from out of state, but Paula more than exceeded my expectations. She located two contractors to bid the job, helped me negotiate a good price, closely supervised the construction, interfaced with the contactor, and in general took care of every aspect of the remodel. The remodel turned out great, and thanks to Paulas help finished under what I though was a very reasonable bid price. With the remodel done the property was much, much more saleable. Paula had it professionally staged and it looked great! Paula told me there would be no additional charges for her project management, design, staging and marketing services, and there were none.Paula recommended how I should price the listing. It seemed a little low, but by then I had complete faith in her judgment. We followed the marketing strategy Paula recommended and as she predicted, when the listing went on the market we had multiple (11!) offers in the first few days, most of them overbids. Paula vetted all the offers, and spoke with all the offering agents to make sure we had their highest and best offers, and then gave us a spreadsheet analyzing the critical parts of each offer, making it very easy to objectively compare all the offers. We received substantially more than the list price and more than we anticipated for the property. Our escrow went so smoothly it closed early. The return on the remodel investment was even more than Paula predicted.Throughout this process Paula was a great communicator she updated me on the progress virtually every day. There was never a time when I could not reach her when I called.

            • Stine was the most ideal agent to help us as first time home buyers. We immediately connected with her on our first meeting, and knew right away that we could trust her to help us through this daunting process. She met with us several months prior and kept us completely informed and equipped along the way! We felt confident that she had our best interest in mind, the entire way! Her communication was amazing, her professionalism was top notch, and her care, kindness, knowledge, and execution made this process a piece of cake. Ultimately we found the home we absolutely loved, and she helped us through an awesome deal. I cannot recommend her services enough!! You will not regret working with Stine and her team!

            • Keith with the Boyenga Team were instrumental in helping us purchase our first home. Not only were we new to the home buying process, but we were also new to understanding the nuances of mountain properties. Keith guided us through the entire process with patience and a crucial eye for detail.His expertise made us feel confident in all of our decisions along the way - from understanding complex inspection reports, learning about septic systems, recommendations for additional inspections and inspectors, and ensuring that as buyers we had the upper hand when possible during negotiations in a seller's market. Keith helped us feel informed in order to make decisions that were best for us, even if this meant we walked away from a purchase (which wouldn't benefit him), which we did.Ultimately, the home we ended up purchasing has been a dream, and we couldn't have done it without Keith. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for an agent, especially in the Santa Cruz mountain region. If we are ever looking to sell or purchase a home in the future, we will certainly be reaching out to Keith again.

            • Sri with the Boyenga team was very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. She was courteous and respectful when corresponding with us and she kept us well informed during the escrow process. She was always concerned about our best interests and willing to do whatever she could to help. My husband and I enjoyed working with her and would highly recommend her to other potential buyer.

            • Highly likely to recommend02/19/2019 - jayvibhakarBought a Single Family home in 2018 in Santa Clara, CA.Ronnie helped me purchase a property in Santa Clara recently. His expertise in the area I was looking at was amazing. He was able to gauge my housing specifications very quickly and subsequently was able to tailor a list of homes which would suit my needs. Ultimately, I ended up purchasing a home perfect for me found by Ronnie that I had not come across in my independent search . His attention to detail is exceptional. Subsequent to finding the right home, he streamlined the buying process for me and made the technical aspects of the purchase effortless. There were small things that needed to be fixed. Ronnie went above and beyond and was able to provide me with contractor referrals and their estimates. He even showed up at the property to work with the contractors if they needed someone present. He was very easy to contact and was always on top of things. I am so glad I met him. I highly recommend him.

            • We worked with Amber for our first home purchase, highly recommend her to anyone who is going through the process. Amber guided us well in the end to end exhaustive journey, she is knowledgeable of the process and market, responsive, was patient to answer all our questions and followed up with numerous listing agents for all the properties we were interested in.

            • Being first time home buyers in the Bay Area, we were a little intimidated at first, especially with the bidding process. Luckily we found Aaron who made the process seamless. An absolute key difference you would notice between Aaron and any other agent would be, that he loves to help you, as opposed to being focused on closing the deal. We felt so much at ease - never ever felt pushed, no matter how many houses we saw.....He has great connections, has in depth knowledge of the market and will get you what you want at the price point you are comfortable with. We both are very happy with our first home and couldn't have been more pleased. We thank you for the time and effort you spent with us, making our first experience as easy as it was! I definitely recommend Aaron Derbacher to anyone and would not hesitate to use again for ourselves."

              - Amit-Cupertino
            • Aaron is both very personable and extremely passionate about what he does and it truly shows in his work. We were definitely not the easiest clients as we were looking for a particular floor plan among other requirements all while staying under a certain budget. Aaron stayed patient with us and was able to not only get us a place that satisfied our check list but also got it at a great price in a tough market. I would and do recommend him to anyone looking to buy a place.

            • We worked with Amber on our recent home purchase. She is very knowledgeable about the housing market in Silicon Valley. She helped us buy our first home here, which happened to be the first house we offered on! I highly recommend Amber whether you are buying or selling a home.

              - Jason-Willow Glen
            • It was my first time buying a property when I had the pleasure of working with Brandon. As you can imagine being a new buyer it was a bit intimidating, there are so many processes and things that need to be done, not just in the offer process but also afterward when initiating closing processes. With his help the process felt so easy with really no issues. At every step of the way he assisted in providing explanation and assurance that we were on the right path to not only secure an offer but also keeping great communication with all parties involved. I did not stress whatsoever during process thanks to his guidance. I would definitely recommend him and his company to anyone needing real estate services.

              - ZA-San Bruno
            • .Ronnie is always willing to offer advice and helped my wife and I in our house hunting process even though our agent was a family member. He is very knowledgeable and a man of great character. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in The Valley looking to buy a home.

            • Pros: friendly, responsive, flexible, great references to household servicesCons: none that I experienced Darcy sold my house in Sunnyvale this summer in September just as the market was starting to soften. I had interviewed The Boyenga Team several years ago when I was considering selling then, but changed my mind when I looked at some issues if I sold then - like capital gains tax. What I liked about their company when I interviewed them was their responsiveness even though I was unsure if I would even sell my Sunnyvale house. Darcy & Eric took time to visit my mother's house that I inherited to help decide whether to sell her house or mine. When I re-evaluated my circumstances this summer, I didn't bother to interview anyone else since Darcy, Janelle, and the Boyenga Team had been much better than the other agents previously interviewed. Their knowledge of Sunnyvale market, their flexibility, their understanding of what technology is useful to market and determine prices were all superior to the other age I also liked that both Darcy and Janelle were flexible and worked with me without dictating orders on what needed to be done. My house had a very upscale remodel 10 years ago, so I needed only to do cosmetic updates to it. Also, I had lived in it for almost 40 years, and I had put so much care into all the upgrades that it was hard to let go. Darcy was very empathetic to my situation reasoning with me when I needed it, but not forcing me into anything I didn't want to do. I disagreed with some of Janelle's suggestions, but none of Darcy's. Janelle suggested painting all the woodwork white, but to me, the cost was prohibitive versus what I thought it would bring to the sale of the house. However, I chose to do much more landscaping than what Janelle recommended. I felt because there were 4 new upscale homes listed on my block that I was in competition with, mine had to look as manicured as theirs. I don't know if I got my money back on the cost, but it made me happy that I was passing my home of many years to the new owners in pristine condition. Overall I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Darcy or to hire her again.

            • Margarita was referred to me by family members. She is an amazing agent who helped my husband and I purchase our first home. We were unsure of the area/city we wanted to live in and she was very patient and informative throughout the process. I had contacted her a couple of months prior to actually making our purchase. At the time, we decided it would be best to wait a couple more months. Margarita called me back a couple of months later to check up on us and see if our situation had changed. We are happy she called back and we were able to get the ball rolling. She is very knowledgeable and made our experience a great one. Every time we had a question or doubt, she was there to answer questions and ensure we felt confident with our every move. Thank you Margarita for going above and beyond. I would strongly recommend her to family and friends.

              - J-San Jose
            • Really great experience, Margarita really takes the time to show you exactly what you are interested in. Very patient and understanding that as a home buyer we dont do this everyday. Takes the time to explain and make sure we understand every aspect. I would very much recommend Margarita to anyone in search for a new or first home.

            • We have been working with Sri and her team to get our new home for a couple of months. Sri is an outstanding real estate agent. She has a unique talent of making impossible things possible. She impressed us with her professionalism, optimism, knowledge of the market and the procedure, fantastic organizational skills and determination of making things work. Sri was with us every step from the beginning to the end--supportive, encouraging, inspiring. It was a great pleasure working with her. We highly recommend her to everybody who considers buying or selling a property. Sri is the best!

            • If you are looking for a real estate agent to take you through each step of a real estate transaction, your search is over. Keith Trainor is the name youve been looking for Keith is an amazing real estate professional. He will carefully help you with making the decision on what you want. He will patiently guide you through the search process without pushing you towards a deal that does not quite fit you, despite the fact that it would benefit him personally. This is a rare quality, especially for agents in this business. Even more, he will steer you away from making decisions that can be a problem long term (for example, houses remodeled without permit, outdated construction code, etc.)Keith takes extra steps to get to know his clients. For instance, he made trips to properties of interest to us to make sure they fit our search criteria. That saved us time and extra trips and added more knowledge of the area. He demonstrated an exceptional knowledge of Santa Cruz area, telling us about the history, people and the environment of many neighborhoods we visited (we were very impressed by Mount Hermont neighborhood history).When preparing for the transaction, his analytical approach was the key. Keith always had answers for all our questions, frequently before we had an opportunity to ask them. He made us feel safe and comfortable making the decision, knowing risks and future implications. He worked very efficiently with the bank and the title company.Upon the completion of the transaction, Keith was very instrumental in helping with builders, contractors and interior designers to do remodeling. He even volunteered to help oversee the progress of remodel, so that we would have to be there only once a weAlways on time, with all the answers to all the questions even those that we did not think of ahead of time, patiently working with us over the year of search, never pushy, always putting clients interest first, Keith is the perfect example of what a real estate professional should be. Honesty and honesty again, combined with a perfect mix of a professionalism and a personable approach is what Keith is all about.Thank you, Keith for a great journey of finding our dream house!

            • After meeting with 3 agents to represent us in our sale, we ultimately chose Janelle and Eric Boyenga and we could not be happier. They listened intently to our wishes and advised us on what our home would need to maximize our sale. They even project-managed our fix and upgrade list. I highly recommend the Boyenga team

              - Ian-Sunyvale
            • Keith helped us to buy the house of our dreams! We have not lived in the area long, and have never previously bought a property that was not in a big city, so we had a lot to learn and a lot of questions. Keith helped navigate us though it all. He thought of everything and helped us to understand what to look out for, from retainer walls, septic systems and pest reports to swimming pools, home layout and potential renovations. He was knowledgeable on it all. Once we had bought our home he worked with us and contractors to get work quoted and scheduled. It took us a while to find the right house, and through it all he was always available and answering questions, and quick to get us in to see new potential listings. His advice on putting an offer together is what got us the house we wanted. I would highly recommend Keith and would work with him anytime.

            • Eric and Janelle helped me sell my home in San Jose, and it could not have gone any better. The entire process was streamlined, and they handled all of the heavy lifting, including hooking me up with a stager and contractors who did a bang up job. They stayed on top of everything, and we got an amazing price in a surprisingly quick time. I cannot recommend team Boyenga highly enough.

              - Eric-San Jose
            • I had a great experience with Janelle Boyenga and her team in selling my uncle's condo in San Jose. I was not familiar with the San Jose market for condos and relied on Janelle's expertise. Based on her recommendations and her contractor's cost estimate, I let her handle everything.Timelines were met, the condo update budget was spot-on and his condo received multiple offers in a week. If you are a busy person and do not have time to update your property yourself, travel to the realtor's office or just hate driving on busy freeways like me, working with the Boyenga team is for you. I only met Janelle in person once and after that we kept in touch by phone, emails, and text. Communication was excellent. They used DocuSign for all their E-signature needs and a mobile notary public came to my house for the escrow paper signing. I would highly recommend Janelle and the Boyenga team for your selling needs.

              - Karrie-San Jose
            • We have worked with Darcy Richardes and the Boyenga Team both on the purchase of our new Los Gatos property and the sale of our Los Altos home. Darcy, Janelle, Eric, and the entire Boyenga Team were exceptionally attentive and accommodating to us in both transactions. They were truly focused on our best interest, listening to our input while also expressing their opinions. We have had two very positive experiences and highly recommend the Boyenga Team.

              - Fox-Los Altos
            • Working with Margarita to sell our condo was an exceptional experience. My husband and I interviewed a couple of Realtors and found Margarita's passion and extensive sales background refreshing & reassuring. She helped get our condo prepped for showing with great contractor recommendations & helped to organize communications with each of them. When it came time for the open house she was on time & her marketing helped to get tons of foot traffic. At the end of the day we sold our condo well over asking price in less than a week! If you are looking for someone who is professional & will treat the sale of your home as though it was their own, I would 100% recommend Margarita! You won't regret it!

              - Bobby-San Jose
            • It was a pleasure working with the Boyenga team! We are so happy with our new home and they made sure that the entire experience would be smooth for us. Even after the sale was closed, we had their support every step of the way. Highly highly recommended!

              - Neri-Sunnyvale
            • Eric, Janelle and their team did an excellent job, helping us purchase a home in Los Gatos as well as selling our house in the Santa Cruz mountains. They were extremely responsive, helping cover all the details, working with stagers, contractors, inspectors, etc. They did a tremendous job in negotiating and getting us get great deals in both transactions. In the purchase of our new home, they were able to put us in a great position to secure the place ahead of other buyers and to close the deal very quickly. They were able to find a very qualified buyer for our old home while other homes in that area have languished for months without being sold. They were always completely professional, attentive, and helpful. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area.

              - David-Los Gatos
            • The Boyenga team clearly stood out over others when we were interviewing realtors to execute our property sale, and they did not disappoint us. Eric and Janelle displayed great grasp of the local market, and fully do justice to the nerd tag they claim. They presented a practical, not over the top, assessment of the current market situation which turned out to be absolutely correct. They also have a great team which maintains same level of expertise and professionalism. I want to specifically mention Paula who was very patient with all my requests. I was initially hesitant to talk to anyone else other Eric or Janelle but Paula was completely in lockstep with the progress and was very diligent and patient in following up on whatever it took to get the house staged as well as any items I needed to be addressed along the way, however minor they were. We always felt we were in good hands. Key points for us in a good realtor are (1) Having grasp of where the market is heading in the short term (2) Clear communication and ability to listen (3) Trust (4) No hard sell when it comes to making decisions about the sale (and there are many items where one needs to make decisions in the process) but at the same time give advice that I can use (5) Negotiation skills. Our final sale price is a testament of tha Boyenga team came through on all of this. There are all kinds of realtors out there. You will not go wrong with the Boyenga team!

            • I cannot recommend Krystal Pung enough! We were out of town buyers and she educated us on the Silicon Valley, found us the perfect home, and negotiated with the seller so that our offer was accepted-- we were absolutely thrilled! Krystal helped hire tradespeople to help with some upgrades and even shopped for marble for us. We have bought and sold many homes through the years and Krystal is the most knowledgeable and professional agent we have ever used. She grew up in the Silicon Valley and knows the areas very well and she will guide you every step of the way. I am recommending her to all my friends and clients looking in the area.

            • I had lost hope to find something to buy in the crazy market of Bay Area after spending a year looking at places and on a few cases making offers with no success until I met Darcy by pure chance. She helped me buy a place which was within my budget in an area that I like. She was kind enough to help me with small remodeling in the property by finding contractors who could do the job within the timeframe that would work with my schedule. This was my first time to buy property and she was very king to explain the process and answer my questions. I highly recommend her, you wouldn't be disappointed with her!

            • This review is way overdue and I couldn't be happier to recommend Keith to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. I worked with Keith for over a year on finding a home that fits my family's needs. As a first time home-owner, it was a steep learning curve for me and I needed a person who I could trust to have my best interest in mind. Keith was definitely that person. He was extremely patient looking for the right home for me, answering all the questions, and providing advise with an ability to put himself in my shoes. I could trust that if there were any concerns with the house Keith would be sure to discuss them with me so I would be fully informed. To add to the complexity of my search, I was looking in the area remotely, yet Keith took time to arrange all the property viewings for me during the time that was convenient for me and would help with all the logistics. After a long search, I found a home that me and my family couldn't be happier with. I am extremely grateful to Keith for all his work, patience, and honesty and am recommending him with 100% confidence to anyone. If you are looking for a person who will go above and beyond in understanding your needs and preferences, who will stay honest, patient and will never push you to a rash decision, I wouldn't look any further.

            • Darcy and her team helped us to sell two houses and buy another. Darcy's knowledge of the local market and her teams wide reaching resources ensured that we received top dollar for both of the houses we sold. They also helped us negotiate a great deal on our new house we purchased. We have bought and sold other houses in the past but we have never had such a positive and professional experienced as when we worked with Darcy. She made this an amazing experience and I would absolutely recommend her to any of my family or friends!

            • Keith worked with us for a long time since it was hard for us to find a condo for our family with such a competitive market in Santa Cruz. He went above and beyond by contacting owners of the condo in the complex we were looking for. He was able to manage an off market deal which we believe was the only way we were able to finally achieve our dream. He is great to work with and so dedicated to his clients. We were so happy with him and would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a property in Santa Cruz.

            • As a first time home buyer, I feel so lucky that I chose April as my agent. She is always there to bring me to any open houses, answer all my questions, and deal with random issues. In this competitive market, she still tries to talk to list agent to get a good deal first instead of pushing you to put all your money. I don't have a car so April always offers free rides from my place to any open house or escrow/loan places. After I got my home, she helped me to connect with the contractor and gave me a lot of design advice. I recommend April to all the single first time home buyer like me.

            • I can't say enough great things about Daunielle. She helped us with buying our first home several years ago, and then turned around to help us sell late last year. Both processes were smooth and easy thanks to her. She is kind and patient, but straightforward, which is exactly what you want in someone helping walk you through your first time buying and selling a home. She answered probably a million of our questions and always offered pros and cons of any decision we were making. She is a great communicator and negotiator too. Some of her recommendations got us a whole lot more money than we expected from the sale! She is trustworthy, knowledgeable, and all-around easy to work with. We love Daunielle and would recommend her to anyone!

            • We needed to sell quickly due to a job relocation and we couldn't be more pleased with how everything worked out. Eric's and Janelle's experience with the local market and process was extremely helpful and efficient. With their help and guidance, we were able to prepare our property and have an open house within a very short period of time, and then be under contract within days after. Their support staff, especially Paula, guided us through all of the documentation requirements. Because of our moving situation, we actually closed from out of state. Very convenient for us. I would recommend the Boyenga Team without hesitation.

            • Janelle, Eric and the entire team were excellent. I love their team approach. Every member has different strengths and capabilities. My sale was quite complicated given we had renters still in a lease and they were not excited about me having to sell the house before the lease was up. Janelle and the team handled this situation beautifully and with kindness and respect. They stayed on it under difficult circumstances. They got me a great price without doing a single open house or staging. The house was full of renter furniture and boxes and they still managed to get me a great price. I was happy with how responsive they were. A special call out to Paula who kept things moving when others on the team were busy or on vacation. I highly recommend the Boyenga team!

            • The Boyenga Team is remarkable! I had so many concerns and issues, Prop 90, tax deferment possibilities, an easement concern, let alone the normal concerns of selling my home. The Boyenga Team provided all of the resources and met my concerns head on. I am so thrilled Eric has a complete team, if you are considering selling LOOK NO FURTHER they are your team!

              - Owen, Los Altos
            • I just want to thank Eric and Janelle for making a successful sale of my home. Not only were they able to get it sold quickly in less then two weeks but sold it for $10000 over asking I would highly recommend them for any of your Real Estate Needs.

            • After meeting with 3 agents to represent us in our sale, we ultimately chose Janelle and Eric Boyenga and we could not be happier. They listened intently to our wishes and advised us on what our home would need to maximize our sale. They even project-managed our fix and upgrade list. I highly recommend the Boyenga team.

            • Eric, Janelle and their team did an excellent job, helping us purchase a home in Los Gatos as well as selling our house in the Santa Cruz mountains. They were extremely responsive, helping cover all the details, working with stagers, contractors, inspectors, etc. They did a tremendous job in negotiating and getting us get great deals in both transactions. In the purchase of our new home, they were able to put us in a great position to secure the place ahead of other buyers and to close the deal very quickly. They were able to find a very qualified buyer for our old home while other homes in that area have languished for months without being sold. They were always completely professional, attentive, and helpful. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area.

            • I had a lot of agents that wanted my business when I was selling my sister's house but I am glad that I talked to Darcy, Eric and Janelle, who assured me that it was best to work with someone with a proven track record. Our sale was a bit challenging from making sure the deed was recorded correctly to the fact that we had tenants in place, but the Boyenga Team stuck it out and in the end sold the house for over asking with multiple offers. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a team that goes above and beyond.

            • Daunielle helped my wife and me buy our first home and she was terrific. She knew the market perfectly and timed our purchase just right (the Zestimate has increased by more than 6 figures in the 7 months since we bought). She is so accessible and easy to talk to, it just made the whole home buying experience as stress free as possible. We met with some other agents who Im sure would have been great but we didnt click with anyone like we did with Daunielle - it was like she was a third member of the family. Highly recommended.

              - Dan-Los Gatos
            • My experience with her has been very positive. She is very responsive, dedicated, and extremely knowledgeable. She laid out clear steps and timing for this transaction and she stayed engaged throughout the process. She made the process easy and predictable and we relied on her to help us and get ready for next step in the process. I highly recommend her!

            • Tara was a real pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her as a real estate professional. She is highly knowledgeable, extremely personable, very responsive and has great relationships and connections in the industry. We bought house in a highly competitive market and Tara managed to get our offer accepted amongst many others due to her great advice and negotiation skills. Thank you Tara for making our dreams come true.

            • It was awesome working with the Boyenga Team! We were looking for a real-estate company that had a good internet presence to help sell our estate home. The Boyenga Team fit the bill. This amazing Team ended up selling our home before it was officially listed on the MLS and it sold for over our planned asking price. Before we had finished decluttering, prepping & staging the house, our home was SOLD!!! We would highly recommend the Boyenga Team to anyone considering selling their home.

              - Ken-San Jose
            • Excellent agent. Highly recommended. Knowledgeable and responsive and sold our home very quickly at the amount of money we were hoping for. Thank you very much for your help Tara. You rock.

            • We were first time buyers and working with somebody else before we moved to Daunielle. She worked for us almost over an year to find us our dream house. It was a wild ride for us as we made lot of offers and couldn't get through in crazy 2017 market. We were probably very picky too. In-spite of all this Daunielle was very patient and helped us feel comfortable throughout the journey. We were also a bit nervous after our contract was accepted due to some loan issues. She remained our guide and ease our tension. I would highly recommend her.

              - Garrett-Milpitas
            • Tara is an excellent agent; with her attention, experience and expertise, we were able to successfully get our offer accepted on the first try, in a market where homes get sold in mere days! Even when she had a death in the family, she was able to stay in contact with us. She paid attention to every detail of the transaction, and she was instrumental in getting us the perfect house. Hire Tara; you won't be disappointed!

            • Great group! Really helped me facilitate the sale of my house including all work needing to be done, etc. They completely handled the management of all my house updates for sale. Would definitely recommend them!!!

            • Eric, Janelle and Darcy and the rest of their administrative staff worked tirelessly and seamlessly to put our house on the market, sell it (over asking price), and close escrow in 5 weeks. They are all about getting results for their customer. I would highly recommend them in a heartbeat. Thank you team Boyenga!

            • We recently bought the perfect home for our family. Paula Wells and the Boyenga team were great through the whole process. They were patient with us as we were very particular about the home we wanted for our family, and they helped us stay under budget and not get into bidding wars for homes that weren't right for our family. Even though it took a little longer to find our home due to starting in the off-season and holding out for the right home at the right price, we found it and were able to get it. Of all the houses we looked at this was the best one for our family. Paula was responsive throughout and helped us make the best offer for us. She didn't just push us into a quick sale for more than we should be paying. We loved working with Paula and the Boyenga team and would highly recommend her to others looking to buy a home.

              - Stephan-San Jose
            • Darcy and the Boyenga team are amazing realtors. They helped us find our current home and went above and beyond what can be expected. They helped us navigate the sometimes stressful experience of purchasing a home and they were always able to explain all nuances of the deal. We wholeheartedly recommend them.
