We evaluated listings, visited properties, and vetted disclosures on more places than I can remember. I really appreciated how Julia stuck with us through the process as we tried to figure out what we were looking for. She’s patient, kind and funny which alleviated the pressures of this real estate market. She’s truly on-call, persistent and firm which made the negotiation and close successful. Even after the sale, she’s been supportive and generous in sharing her experience with home ownership. Best of all, my daughter got the home of her dreams thanks to Julia.
I was in a bind and Grant sold the property quickly. Great communication along the way. We made a loan to a borrower who needed to payoff our debt and get top dollar and grant helped all parties involved. He found a buyer within 30 days.
We hired The Villeneuve team as the listing agent for one of our most challenging properties to sell which had a smaller unique target audience. They stepped-up to the challenge, demonstrated excellent sales/marketing skills and achieved excellent results for us. We are very pleased with the results she achieved for us and look forward to working with her again in the future.
Of the realtors I've worked with over the years, Julia is tops. She got me a full priced buyer *on the first showing* for a very old, awkward house with all sorts of impairments (which we disclosed of course). She got us to close cleanly and professionally, dealing with a dozen+ issues that came up and required good judgment on how to resolve. She did a great job of setting expectations and brilliantly managed the process of prepping for sale, focusing on essentials but not wasting time/money on things that didn't apply to this house.
Julia helped us purchase our first home (in a pandemic no less!) and it was such a smooth and organized process. Since it was our first time through the process, we had dozens of questions and Julia responded immediately and thoroughly and was very much a partner throughout all of it. We're so grateful that we had Julia as our realtor to guide and support us in finding our home!
I enjoyed working with Julia! She was very responsive and helped navigate all the extra difficulties with the covid protocols. This was my first home buying experience and she made everything run smoothly. The MyTheo app was incredibly useful in sorting through all the listings and helping me locate the perfect place. She was very friendly, easy to work with, and understood exactly what I was looking for.
Julia was fantastic. We welcomed her expertise in dealing with the various pitfalls and gotchas that are involved in buying a home in the Bay Area. The market here is very different from other parts of the country and Julia helped us navigate through the process with ease. In fact, she helped us secure our dream home after only viewing 3 properties in total. She's extremely responsive and always returned our messages/calls promptly. She's a superstar.
Best buying experience ever, almost 24/7 availability and immediate resolutions to every question I had. closed (received my keys) in under 25 days from the day I started working with Julia. I decided to purchase an apartment after covid impacted the sales in the bay area. Julia recommended the best areas, provided good reasons to avoid some apartments I found myself, etc. I have not seen the place in person prior to buying, only a video tour (it was arranged the same day!) and the way she handled it made me comfortable buying remotely.
I recently sold a house in Berkeley with the help of Grant and team and the experience was seamless. I was able to be entirely hands-off throughout the listing and selling process, which required a lot of hard work to get the house ready to show. They were on top of the process the entire time and had good offers in front of me within less than 2 days of listing.
Highly recommend!! Julia Villeneuve was an amazing Realtor to work with! Professional, responsive, and provided excellent insight. We are very pleased with the quality of service we received with Villeneuve Properties
Julia is great. Helped me get into my first home expeditiously. So glad she was able to make it all happen. No fuss and no bumps. My kind of transaction.
Julia helped us buy our condo in Mountain View. We are very happy with her work during the search process, the negotiation, and the closing. Thanks to her knowledge of the Bay Area market we were able to find the right place for us and close the deal below the asking price. She was always available for us and followed up on all the details. We highly recommend Julia to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the Bay Area.
In the very competitive Bay Area real estate market Grant accomplished two critical measures to assure our successful purchase of a property. First, in the early phases leading to a formal offer, Grant carefully outlined the process, oversaw the all important aggregation of information leading up to a bid submission, and secured our e-signatures in a timely fashion. Second, Grant kept us atop the critical factors that needed be included to increase the likelihood of success - in our case the need to present as "clean" an offer as possible and the above asking range we need consider given the frenzied climate. Grant was spot on with his recommendations and we were successful in our bid. I should add that the California home we purchased was 3000 miles away from our East Coast home and done solely over the internet. Grant took the time to make the 45 minute drive to the Bay Area property, walk the neighborhood, image the property inside and out, and offer his immediate impression. Most remarkably the whole process played out over eight days and our bid accepted. Two thumbs up and five stars are easy ratings to arrive at.
Grant and his team are extremely knowledge about Bay Area real estate. They took the time to help me find my first home, advise me through all steps of the process and close at an excellent value.
It was amazing to work with Grant. being new to bay Area, we needed some one to understand our requirement well and suggest accordingly. The best part was the patience Grant had with us as we saw lot of houses before narrowing down. I would like to thank Grant for the prompt response he showed in the 6 months of our engagement
I had two real estate transactions with Denise Villeneuve. She was extremely professional, and provided exceptional service, organizing different vendors, including painters, stagers. And she has a very pleasant, authentic, cheerful personality. I can highly recommend her. Dr. Katharina Powers
The Villeneuve Properties team has done an AMAZING job helping us secure our first home! We could not imagine taking this journey with another team. They work quick and have been persistent with everyone involved to assure we close right on time. From Grant helping us find houses we liked, Julia sharing our vision and helping map out what our future could look like, to Denise negotiating and helping seal the deal under asking... we could not recommend them more!
Beyond attentive and committed to finding us what she want. Introduced data into our decision making, let us explore at our pace and focus on finding what was right for us. She is patient yet focused and responsive.
The Villeneuve Team did an excellent job selling my company's house in Carmel. They did a great job getting the property ready for sale and were always very responsive. The house was old and had a number of issues, but Team Villeneuve got them resolved and the house sold.
Julia is an extremely personable, charismatic person who you'll enjoy every minute with. Her knowledge of the real estate market -- throughout the country -- has been extremely helpful to me over the years and I can't recommend her enough.
Julia is the kind of person you want in your court during the complicated home buying process. She is charming and an absolute pleasure to work with. She is also direct, thorough, and incredibly driven. Julia will get it done!
Grant helped me selling a Condo in 95128 zip area in 2018. I am very grateful for his excellent handle of the process, it was flawless, from the moment we spoke for the first time till the closure. Grant priced the property perfectly. Grant advertised property actively. He was very prompt with all questions I had. He negotiated with the buyer skillfully.
Grant is hands down an amazing realtor! I had a high-end mixed use property in the city that he represented for me. He walked me through the whole process, was super creative, able to answer all of my questions, kept me updated of any changes, let me know what was needed by when and was an absolute advocate for me. He was readily available at any time and facilitated everything on my behalf. I truly cannot recommend him enough. He knows the business inside and out and is incredibly knowledgeable of what's happening in the neighborhoods on a micro level. He takes his profession seriously, and will always bring a thoroughness and detail oriented approach to your sale or purchase. If you're looking for an insightful real estate agent to buy or sell in San Francisco or the Bay, he is your guy! He is exactly the type of real estate agent you want in your corner. I highly recommend him!
Julia helped me find the perfect apartment in San Francisco when I first moved to the city. She listened carefully to my wish list and within 24 hours had found the perfect fit for me and my two roommates. Julia helped walk us through the renting process and was available to answer all and any questions. She brings such positive energy to her work that makes doing business with her so enjoyable. I will definitely be working with Julia when I want to purchase my first home in the Bay!
Julia is a joy to work with. She's confident and knowledgable, always providing information above and beyond my asks. She helped me explore neighborhoods I thought I wanted, and also expanded my horizon with related properties and neighborhoods I hadn't considered. No overselling or pressure to make decisions quickly. Looking forward to continued work with Julia!
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Julia in the past. Not only is she is incredibly well versed in the real estate market in the bay area, but Julia did a terrific job helping me find a place in SF. One of the reasons why I chose to work with her is because she is a community leader, with a tremendous amount of knowledge about the different neighborhoods in the bay area.
Julia is nothing short of amazing. She is attentive, always available and works hard to make sure you get exactly what you’re looking for. She was super knowledgeable about the two neighborhoods I was most interested in and her diligence and professionalism removed all stress from the process. I always felt that she had my best interest in mind and for that I thank her!
If you are buying or selling ONLY use Julia! She is passionate about selling and knows the market better than most. Julia was great to work with from the start. She was always patient with our continually changing needs/wants and very flexible with scheduling a time to meet or talk on the phone. Highly recommend Julia as she will give 110% to make sure you can find the place you truly love!
Where to start with Julia! She is a relationship builder at heart, has a great background in sales and negotiation and a knack for truly understanding you and your needs before jumping straight to solutions. This made it extremely easy to work with her knowing I could fully trust her. She is incredibly knowledgeable about Real Estate, the markets, homes, pricing, and everything in between. She was there to help me through!
Denise does her homework and ensures analysis properly done prior to purchase and or sale. Alwas timely and ahead of schedule. Constant communication of items needed to complete.
"Denise & Grant are amazing to work with! Denise patiently showed me all over the Peninsula and moved on a dime to meet me at one property and get an offer in. They are extremely knowledgeable about real estate values and trends in the Peninsula and have a long track record of real estate here. I can't recommend them enough!" - Kiki, Potola Valley
"The Villeneuve team knew when to get the house on the market for maximum benefit to us as sellers. Denise made it happen even though we were slow to start. They was able to arrange minor repairs to the house and stagers that met our criteria. They did what needed to get done to sell our home and the offers we received because of her knowledge of the market, her hard work, and her negotiation skills were all fantastic and beyond our expectations. It was a pleasure to work with the Villeneuve team and their responsiveness to our needs was the best we have ever experienced in a real estate situation. We would use them again and we recommend the Villeneuve team without hesitation." - Vincent Tong, Atherton
"We hired The Villeneuve team as the listing agent for one of our most challenging properties to sell which had a smaller unique target audience.

"I have known Denise for a number of years as a real estate agent. She is extremely professional in her dealings with various people in the buying and selling of residential properties. During the last couple of years, Denise had assisted and managed a number of real estate transactions for my family. Denise is very knowledgeable and extremely thorough in her market analysis. She understood the changing real estate market landscape in a very difficult real estate period in California. She provided us with valuable information that enabled us to successfully execute the sale and purchase of properties in the California real estate market. Her in depth analysis and thoughtful recommendations helped us to look at the real estate landscape objectively which led us to make the right decisions to both sell and buy properties in a matter of few months. Her demeanor was excellent to deal with people from all walks of life to negotiate and resolve issues with prospective buyers or sellers, banks, mortgage brokers etc. that made everybody very comfortable to deal with her.

"One of the finest, most experienced agents in residential real estate. My dealings with Denise have always been professional, quick, and accurate. An all around Great experience to work with her." - Bill
"Denise did an excellent job of helping my family purchase our first home in California. After hand-holding us through the initial sticker shock of California housing prices, she worked tirelessly to help us find the perfect home and to feel good about the decision. We have not regretted for even one minute the decision to got with Denise as our realtor and she has since helped friends of ours buy and sell their homes to their complete satisfaction as well." -Terry Spurling, Menlo Park
"The Villeneuve team is absolutely fantastic to work with. We were new home buyers, so needless to say, we needed a lot of guidance & help. Denise was so patient with us - responded to all of our silly questions on email, stayed late at the office to help explain things to us, joined us for some of our house tours.. The listings website is really easy to use. She sent us listings that she thought matched our interests, the open house timing etc. She was great at setting expectations from the start - this is a very challenging market to buy in; however, she was very encouraging. When we finally settled on a place, she went above and beyond, setting up a meeting with the seller to present our offer(s). She negotiated on our behalf & helped us stay within our budget, which is fairly challenging in the bay area. She was absolutely fantastic & we would recommend her to anyone." -Sara Wozniak
"Denise is fantastic! She knows the real estate business inside and out. She has helped us with several transactions and we are always happy with her work. She is energetic, knowledgable and well connected. Denise goes the extra mile to make sure things are done efficiently. With her vast network, she knows the right people to contact to make sure everything goes smoothly with both buyers and sellers. I highly recommend her and we plan to work with Denise on any and all real estate transactions in the future!" - Shaheen Oshtory
"We have had the property on market multiple times and for many years, but didn't make the sell, including with brand-named agents self-claimed as being the #1 in the Bay Area for high-end properties. We eventually found Denise (actually she found us) and she took the task very seriously and professionally, and made extraordinary efforts, including setting up, decorations, maintenances, etc. and many other details. And her communication with potential clients was just excellent. Since both my wife and I were working aboard then, it was difficult for us to look after the property during the period. Denise and her husband provided helping hands and taken care of the property down to the very details, as if its their own house. The end result is: the property was locked with serious offer in about ONE month after the house was put on to the market for the Nth time (not even during hot sale season) and the transaction was completed smoothly in less than 3 months while we were on the other side of the Earth. The contrast of Denise and her professional service is so large in comparison with the many agents we have had previously, the only rating we see appropriate is nothing else but full Five-Star." - Youqui Wang
"Denise made the entire experience smooth and pleasurable. She is a great listener (and the importance of understanding what a home buyer is looking for cannot be overstated enough), she managed to translate our wishes into concrete plans and actions, communicated with great clarity us at every step, paying a lot attention to details while patiently explaining the process to us. We were almost in disbelief when we realized that getting the property we dreamed of was actually going to happen, and all thanks to Denise's relentless and accurate work. We couldn't have asked for a better service and, in our humble opinion, she has now set quite a high bar for performance in her profession." - Enzo Carrone
"Denise helped us to sell our house. She presented it like a model home. She gave us honest opinion and guided us throughout the process. She is friendly, helpful and approachable, always available to answer questions." - Vincent Tong
"Denise does her homework and ensures analysis properly done prior to purchase and or sale. Always timely and ahead of schedule. Constant communication of items needed to complete." - Menlo Park
"Denise did a great job for us. She kept us informed on what was happening in the market and who was looking at her property. I make a living in commercial real estate and appreciate the expertise and professionalism Denise has." -Todd Oliver
