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. And over the years, Eric and Janelle have assembled an orchestra of specialists who put the plus in everything they do. From marketing experts, legal experts, and local agents all in harmony as part of the Boyenga Team our clients receive a level of service and detail unparalleled in real estate. You cannot find another team with our depth of experience and knowledge and support, and we are proud of having assembled the best team in Silicon Valley.

Their strong business ethics and strategic thinking – coupled with the group’s of over 150 years of combined real estate experience – create a unique residential sales team. 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. It is this passion that has made the Boyenga Team the number one team in Silicon Valley. With local expertise, unparalleled marketing, and personal service we would like to show you the Boyenga difference. The Boyenga Team has been recognized nationally by many publications, including Real Trends and the Wall Street Journal as one of the top 200 teams in the entire country.

About The

Comprised of founding members Adam Touni, Wendy Kandasamy, and Katharine Carroll, The reSolve Group came together around a shared love of their work and commitment to serving their clients with the highest level of professionalism and care. The Bay Area real estate market is fast paced and high pressure, but the reSolve Group knows how to separate the signal from the noise. By focusing on their clients' needs and relying on their experience, their clients proact more than react in order to succeed. Working with the reSolve Group goes well beyond a transaction; they strive to build lifelong partnerships with clients as their trusted real estate advisors. The team’s skill sets truly distinguish them from other agents. Wendy brings a highly analytical approach to real estate after studying computer science and spending her early career as an engineer in the financial sector. Based on her ability to take in and synthesize impressive amounts of information, she has an uncanny knack for spotting unique opportunities before anyone else. Adam is an attorney who focused on land use, real estate transactions and litigation before becoming a full-time broker associate. He spots and helps clients mitigate risk, but really excels at crafting and telling the story of a home in creative marketing campaigns. Katharine brings a strategic focus, project management skills and the ability to calmly problem solve; all tools she developed during her tenure as a professional cyclist and as managing broker for Pacific Union’s Palo Alto office. Together, with their diverse backgrounds, experiences and approaches, they help clients achieve success.
