The team at Venema Homes did an excellent job marketing, prepping, and selling our home. Today's home market requires a professional organization who knows the marketplace and can guide you through the potential pitfalls of pricing and selling. They need to also be able to react quickly to the changes happening. The Venema team did all of these and got us a great offer in about 3 weeks.

We’d like to thank the team at Venema Homes for assisting us in selling our home, of over 30 years, here in Pleasanton. It wasn’t a hard decision to choose Venema Homes to handle our real estate transaction because we have known Liz since we moved to this city and Alexis since she was born here. Even with other truly qualified local realtor friends, it was a done deal to work with Venema Homes, and there were no surprises. The sale of our home and the prep work that went into getting it ready for the market (thanks Steve & Vista Construction) went above and beyond. Our home sold for hundreds of thousands more than our initial asking price. That is no surprise in Pleasanton these days. But I’ve had many people ask if the home wasn’t priced low to encourage such as result. That didn’t happen . Liz and team came to us just before we went to market and helped us determine, what we thought a true and fair market price might be, the asking price, a number we would have been more than happy to receive and we went with that. But it was the work behind the scenes by the Venema Team that made all the difference. We can’t say enough how thrilled we were by all aspects of this real estate transaction but just one more time…Thank You!Jerry & Josine Pentin

The Venema Homes team was fantastic! They came highly recommended by a good friend, and with good reason. My husband and I were buying our first home, our budget probably was modest compared to the homes I’ve seen the team help buy and sell, but that didn’t matter. Alexis was a great help. She showed us multiple properties and when we found one we loved, she sent an offer letter that our loan officer called wonderfully aggressive. She got us our home for barely over asking. This is a group that knows what they are doing. I also watched the Venema team sell my parents’ house. My parents received offers over asking. If you are looking to buy or sell, seriously consider using the Venema team. I was terrified of the prospect of buying a house, but Alexis and the rest of the team turned what could have been a nightmare into an enjoyable and exciting experience. Five stars.

We were referred to Lisa and her team as my parents used them for when they sold their home. Immediately, Lisa was amazing at keeping us up-to-date with the market that was within our budget. She always had our best interest in mind and we never felt pressured. We appreciated how flexible she was with our schedule. We are grateful to Lisa and her team! Using Venema Homes makes what is already a stressful process that much easier. 10/10!

Our family has lived in Pleasanton for over 20 years and decided to sell our beautiful home. Even though I am a real estate broker myself and in the homebuilding business, I knew I needed a professional team of real estate agents to handle the sales process. Our family has known Liz and Lexi Venema personally for many years and I have always respected Liz as a top agent in the Pleasanton market. It has been exciting to watch Lexi advance in this profession and team up with her mom. The two of them were a great team supporting all aspects of the sales process including, pricing, staging, marketing and photography and ultimately finding us the perfect buyer. The process was almost flawless. I recommend the Venema team to anyone considering selling their home.

We met Lisa Desmond of Venema Homes sometime in 2019 as we were doing open homes and evaluating the Livermore area for a future move. It was late 2020 before we were ready to purchase our next home, and Lisa made such an impression on us that we called her to consider being our buyer agent. We spoke with several others also, but we were most comfortable and confident with Lisa. After several months of shopping, Lisa found us a home that fit our needs and budget, and the best part was she absolutely was looking our for our interests and protection each step of the way. The paperwork and process of shopping, evaluating, negotiating, and closing a deal on a home can be daunting. We greatly appreciate Lisa and her team's efforts to make the process smooth and successful!

Liz and her team are absolutely amazing, the best in Pleasanton. They worked so closely and patiently with my family. With Liz we had no problem finding our dream home. She showed us countless properties, due to her friendly and genuine personalities we felt we could count on her honest advice. She was never pushy in our decision making process or ever hesitated in answering any of our questions big or small. Even after the closing she continued to help us find movers and helped with our home warranty issues. Highly recommend the entire team for a truly caring and professional experience.
