About Boyenga

“A real estate transaction is like an orchestra, if the many components are all in harmony the real estate transaction just like the music in an orchestra is beautiful. And just like an orchestra no one person can play all the instruments, and that’s why I’ve assembled the best orchestra in real estate.” Eric Boyenga As one of the largest financial transactions a family will make in their lifetime it is critical the “orchestra” required to get the right results for the sale or purchase of a home to be in harmony. From marketing, neighborhood knowledge, negotiations, escrow, and protecting clients from legal exposure no one agent is capable of playing all the instruments. Because of the vast complexity and demands of the modern real estate transaction, Eric and Janelle Boyenga set out to create the team approach to serving the real estate seller and buyer.

Their clients appreciate their enthusiasm, integrity and personal approach. “Real estate, like life, is all about getting the details right,” Janelle says. “That means understanding the client’s needs and hopes, that the client knows their choices, and that we work together efficiently to achieve the transaction they expect when choosing their real estate team. There are many people involved along the way – family, other agents, legal advisors, escrow officers, lenders – and a major part of my job is to orchestrate the events which lead to a smooth sale and closing. But most importantly every client is treated like family, and we take pride in the long term relationships we have developed with our clients over the years.” From working to define a client’s vision and managing those expectations, to negotiating with tenacity while keeping in close communication, the Boyenga Team is well-known for their tireless determination that ensures her clients meet their goals, regardless of how complex. Over the years our team has been coined as the “Property Nerds” because of our love and passion for residential real estate.
