What My Client’s Say…

Eileen,

This is to thank you and compliment you for the best job of completely handling the recent sale of our house at Creekside Oaks. You made it look easy but I know it required an enormous amount of coordination and attention to detail that could only come from many years of experience. Thanks again for great performance and a great outcome. You are the best.

~ Liz & Joe R.

Eileen was our agent in 1986, when we moved from our home in New Jersey to our house in Los Gatos.  Now, thirty years later, we decided to have Eileen represent us in the sale of this wonderful house, so we can begin a new adventure in Colorado.  Eileen is the consummate professional.  She is knowledgeable, responsible, conscientious, honest, energetic, and a terrific person with whom to work. She dealt with taxing negotiations with poise and patience.  We are most grateful.

~ Pat and Steve M.

Dear Eileen,


Once again, you've helped us attain a dream. Finding the perfect home in Los Gatos so Zander and Daisy could enroll in kindergarden, on the second try, was such a relief. An then, to have sold Lansford, too! Your patience and knowledge, candor and support. We are forever grateful!

~ Alex & Stacey: Los Gatos Buyer & Willow Glen Seller

Dear Eileen,

Chris and I wanted to say a special thank you for the professional job you did selling our house. You were always on target for any questions or thigns that need to be taken care of immediately.
You did a AWESOME job! We really appreciate it. 

~ Carole & Chris: Almaden Buyer & Saratoga Seller

 Hi Eileen,


As promised, a smooth transaction with Lansford.  Thank you so much for all that you’ve done on your end.  It is such a pleasure to work with a “pro” and avoid any drama.  You and your clients have been so nice to work with.  As you know, that isn’t always the case in our business, so we truly appreciate it when it happens!

Please thank the sellers again for us, as we actually hate to lose them from the neighborhood!


Thanks,

Paul

Eileen,

I wanted to give you a great big thank you for everything you have done for us and taking care of me as a first time buyer. You earned the title of “Most Patient Realtor of 2014 and 2015” since it’s been over a year!!!! And not only are you the best at what you do, but you are so fun to hang out with, too!!

I can’t wait to introduce Shinya to you and John. We are going to love our new home!

All the best,

~ Mark and Shinya: Buyer, Saratoga

It was a pleasure to work with Eileen in selling my house in Los Gatos. She was very up front on what needed to be done to the house to ready it for the market and made sure I understood the process and procedures for selling in California.

After the house was ready for the market, it sold quickly due to her marketing and expertise. So a very big "thank you" to Eileen for making the process understandable and fast. By the way, I live in Virginia, so even doing a lot of things long distance worked well due to her expertise.

Again, thank you, Eileen. It was a pleasure to know you and work with you.

~ Michael Thompson: Seller, Los Gatos

Dear Eileen,

We were impressed with your professionalism and hard work when you found a wonderful townhouse for us to purchase but we are REALLY impressed now that you sold our former home. We are so glad that we were able to work together, even though the buyers sometimes made our lives miserable!

Anytime you would like a referral we will be first in line to talk to any perspective client.

Thanks for being always positive and persistent.

Sincerely,

~ Barbara and Mel Phelps: Buyer/Seller, Los Gatos/ Aptos

"Many thanks for going "above & beyond" in helping us realize our dreams in Los Altos and for helping us make a smooth transiton from "149" to "1570.""

~ Mike, Iza, Stephanie, Emma & Brandy:  Buyer/Seller, Los Altos/ Los Gatos

"I cannot praise Eileen enough for helping us find our new home.  Over the course of many months she was so patient and kind driving us around to view potential purchases.  When it came to actually making an offer on the home of our choice Eileen's strategy on when and how much to offer was brilliant and beat out the competition.

We truly love our new home and add this one to the several other homes she has enabled us to purchase over the course of many years.  She has an uncanny knack of sizing up each situation and always seems to come with the correct approach for every situation.  In short she is simply the best!!!"

~ George W.:  Buyer/Seller/Buyer, Saratoga

........................................................................................................................................
 

"We could not have asked for a better partner for our family in finding our new home than Eileen.  Her patience, tenacity, good humor, and genuine care for what mattered to us at  every step of the process - before, during, and after the sale - made a huge difference to our family.  She truly went above and beyond and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a new home in the area."

~ Kim & Doug: Buyer, Saratoga

........................................................................................................................................

 

"Over a decade ago Eileen helped us find a home when we relocated to the area. She was recommended by a co-worker I respected greatly. Two kids and what seems like a hundred years later, we needed to sell our home and buy a new one. In our time in Los Gatos we had developed many new relationships and met a fair number of real estate agents. We never considered going with anyone other than Eileen again. We trusted her to help us find the perfect new home and to represent us in selling our own.  

Our decision was validated and richly rewarded. She methodically showed us every home matching our vision and saved us a lot of time not viewing ones that were just not right for us. When we did find just the right home, her guidance allowed us to win the house in a multiple bid situation without getting into a bidding war.

When we sold our home, her guidance allowed us to achieve the highest sales price for a home in the history of the area and we got above asking. In short, trust her advice. 

Eileen assisted us when my mother retired to the area and more recently with the sale of her home. We have recommend her to friends who have also enjoyed working with her. 

She also has a great team working with her."

~ The MacDonald Family: Buyer/Seller, Los Gatos

........................................................................................................................................

"Eileen was a professional at every turn of my home sales saga. From a false start in a down market to a home run in better times, she was patient and understanding as I prepared my home for sale. With her guidance, I invested in my property to make it a desirable "turn key" purchase for a new owner. Every dollar came back ten fold and the buyers lined up with offers that exceeded my expectation. Her experience in pricing the property correctly resulted in three open house days and an incredible and constant parade of buyers and realtors. I truly believe that she was instrumental in my home selling quickly and with the most favorable terms and accepted offer possible.

With sincere thanks and appreciation of your outstanding representation,"

~ Erik Hansen: Seller, Sunnyvale

........................................................................................................................................

"We had the pleasure to work with Eileen to find our home in the Bay Area and she was able to find the right neighborhood for us and subsequently the perfect home for us in Willow Glen.  When a few years later we had to relocate, we decided to ask Eileen to work with us for the sale of the house.  Her advice in preparing the house and positioning it on the market was valuable and resulted in the best experience we have ever had selling a house.  The house sold in 24 hours well above asking price.  The rest of the transaction went as smoothly as could be making the overall process a very enjoyable experience.  I highly recommend the experience and expertise that Eileen brought to our real-estate transaction."

~ Francois Leroy:  Seller, Willow Glen

........................................................................................................................................

 

"Eileen was patient, helpful, knowledgeable and a delight to work with. 
    
When my dad was ready to sell his house, it was my job to help him get the house ready to put on the market but I was seriously out of my element.  A dear friend referred us to Eileen and I feel so lucky that it was Eileen she hooked us up with.  Her help was invaluable; she knew what needed to be done to get the house ready to sell.  She helped me prioritize my list of chores and she helped me find people to do take care of tasks that were more than I could manage on my own (like the landscaping).   At the end of the preparation, when I felt like I couldn’t do one-more-thing, she referred me to a cleaning crew who did a spectacular job while I relaxed and read a book.
 
We were so happy when the house sold in a week for over 25% of the asking price!  We can only take credit for being smart enough to trust Eileen’s knowledge of how to market a house.  I really can't thank her enough."

 

~  Pam Bierce:  Seller, Sunnyvale

........................................................................................................................................

 

"Hi Eileen,

Glad the flowers arrived ok.  A very small "thank you" for your guidance and wise counsel which I have valued over almost 21 years - since 2002 when we started looking for what turned out to be 1037 Las Palmas Drive.  Thank you !

 
Take care & look after yourself"

 

~ Andy:  Seller, Cupertino & San Jose

........................................................................................................................................

 

“Eileen: You epitomize what a great broker should be:  patient, organized, aggressive and, of course, knowledgeable about the market complexities that exist in the communities that you work.  Robb and I appreciate and thank you for successfully marketing and skillfully pricing our home to sell in one of the worst real estate downturns in recent memory. We are pleased with the results.  Your skill and determination got our house sold and helped us find a new home that we love.  For us, choosing you to broker our home and help us find a new one was a winning decision.  Thank you for all your hard work.”

 

~ Nancy and Robb:  Seller/Buyer, Saratoga

........................................................................................................................................

 

“We just closed on a house in Bend last week and will move next month.  It's amazing how far your real estate dollar goes when you look outside the Bay Area.  We found an average realtor up there, but I must admit that several times both Lynn and I wished we could "fly Eileen up to Bend and help us buy a home"!  Working with another realtor made us appreciate how hard you worked and what a great job you do!”

 

~ John & Lynn: Seller, Cupertino

........................................................................................................................................


“Thanks!!  Lynn and I are really happy that everything went so smoothly.  We have appreciated your advice and counsel and all the help you gave us during the entire process.  It was great to be able to work with you again.  We will stay in touch!”

 

~John and Lynn Brune:  Seller, Cupertino

........................................................................................................................................


“Our experience with Eileen was more than we could have ever dreamed about.  Eileen came as the very strong and only referral when we asked our close friends for a Realtor.  Every Realtor we encountered along the way that represented a house we were interested in, either knew her, had heard of her, or was very pleased to work with her.  Eileen’s experience, professionalism, and straight forward, no nonsense approach to real estate make her the ultimate Realtor for the Bay Area.

 

Eileen has become synonymous with having a positive home buying experience.”

 

~ Brandon and Lora:  Buyer, Willow Glen

........................................................................................................................................

 

“When it comes to buying or selling a home in the bay area no one does it better than Eileen.   Eileen helped us buy our first home five years ago during the boom; she was patient and understanding of our budget constraints and our lack of understanding of the housing market as it was.  She helped us understand the paperwork and all the documentation from reports to the close of escrow.  

We knew when it was time to upgrade our home that Eileen was the person we needed on our team both to sell the old and find and purchase the new.  Eileen makes her clients feel as if they are the only people she is dealing with.  She met us at our home on a Sunday morning and gave up the better part of her day to go over endless documentation and walk us through the process yet again.

Eileen always works with her clients’ best interest in mind.  Let’s face it; buying a home in the bay area is a daunting process, as someone once told us “you use a different currency out there.”  Somehow working with Eileen makes the process much less painful and to be honest, fun!
 
We highly recommend Eileen to all our friends and family and know without hesitation that if we move again, Eileen is our realtor.”

 

 ~Vincent and Shari (Elijah and Nathan too!):  Buyer/Seller/Buyer, Santa Clara

 

........................................................................................................................................

 

“We were incredibly lucky to find Eileen to act as our real estate agent. She was incredibly responsive, spent a huge amount of time helping us find the perfect house and carefully explained the real estate market in Northern California. She knew the area we were looking in extremely well and had lots of helpful suggestions for local services. We are so happy with our home and could not have done it without Eileen.”

 

~ Deborah Chapnick & Jason Rothwitz:  Buyer, Campbell

........................................................................................................................................


“Both Vicky and I have nothing but praise for the work you accomplished in the sale of our home.  From the first meeting in which you laid out the entire program to the final days of the transaction, we believed you to be professional and outstanding.  You were attentive to our needs and listened to us, which is a great asset.  We wish you continued success in your future efforts.”

 

 ~ Gene & Victoria Knowles:  Seller, Los Gatos

........................................................................................................................................


“Eileen made our real estate transaction so great: expertise-she knows what she's doing!!! She's an expert and helped us through the whole transaction. Every question was answered. Professionalism - we were treated with respect. I was impressed at the way she smoothly handled our contract negotiations. Listening skills - she listened and understood our goals and concerns. Confidence - her confidence made us feel good about her abilities and our decision to work with her.”

 

~ Paul & Lisa Fariina:  Buyer/Seller, Santa Clara

........................................................................................................................................

 

“Eileen Bosch is the most professional real estate agent my husband and I have ever worked with.  She knows her business inside and out and as a result, has never wasted our time.  She was always well prepared, anticipated our needs and never left things until the last minute.  Her communication skills are superlative and she always kept us well informed.  It was a pleasure to have Eileen both sell our home and find us another.  We would highly recommend her if you would like a smooth and effortless experience in selling or buying a home.”

 

~ Michael & Carol Brookins:  Buyer/Seller/Buyer, Willow Glen/San Jose

........................................................................................................................................

 

“Eileen was tireless in her efforts to find us the right home.  She made sure that we had her office, cell and home telephone numbers.  She continually checked new listings and kept us informed.  When we make the decision to buy or sell real estate in the future, we will call Eileen.”

 

~ Teresa & Tom Coffey:  Buyer/Seller, Campbell

........................................................................................................................................

 

“The best decision we made when we moved to California was to work with Eileen in finding a new home.  She has a no-nonsense attitude and gives honest, straightforward advice based on her years of experience in the tough Silicon Valley market.  She is incredibly busy, but makes you feel as though you are her only client, giving you all of her phone numbers (including cell and home) and always being accessible.  We would not have our new home if it weren’t for Eileen’s keen negotiating skills.  She made buying a home a wonderful experience.

 

Eileen’s dedication didn’t cease when we signed the closing papers.  She followed up to make sure that everything was okay with our new home and provided us with useful information on local services.  We know that she is still always there to answer any questions we might have whether it be regarding real estate or a suggestion for a great place for dinner.  She is a wonderful resource!  There is no doubt that we will use Eileen in the future and we have recommended her to all of our friends.”

 

~ Karen & Will Patton:  Buyer/Seller, San Jose

........................................................................................................................................

 

“Eileen Bosch of Alain Pinel Realtors was our real estate agent assisting in the sale of our home in Los Altos and the purchase of a condominium at The Villages in San Jose.  It is readily apparent that Ms. Bosch is very knowledgeable about the real estate business and is extremely thorough to see that all the steps which must be processed in the sale and purchase of real property are properly done.  We have complete confidence in her abilities and ethics and would have no reluctance in recommending her services.”

 

~ Joe & Cindi Elliott:  Seller/Buyer, Los Altos & San Jose

........................................................................................................................................


“As our agent, Eileen represented us with care, professionalism and the negotiation savvy needed to acquire a home that we love.  We also greatly appreciated her responsiveness and insights on the South Bay market.  Very happily, we now consider her as both a trustworthy agent and good friend!”

 

~ Mitchell & Liane Wong:  Buyer/Seller/Buyer, San Carlos & Los Altos

........................................................................................................................................

 

“Eileen is a hardworking professional who did an excellent job in representing our best interests when she sold our Saratoga home.  She's a strong negotiator who gets the best results for her clients and is persistent in following up and keeping her clients informed.  She also stays informed of current property values by consistently previewing property and touring on broker tours.  Eileen even works while on vacation.  She diligently checks in to be brought up to date on the status of her transactions to make sure they are progressing smoothly.” 

 

~ Sharon & Alan Defever:  Seller, Saratoga

~ Laurie Martinsen:  Buyer/Seller, San Jose

........................................................................................................................................

 

“Highly recommend-knowledgeable-thorough-pleasant-helpful suggestions-great follow through.  Maintained contact with us which was very helpful as we had already moved from the area.  Handled all details, left nothing to chance-up to date on all the latest requirements as well as supplying key advice on obtaining the best price, specifically pointed out what we needed to do to the house and why.  Took charge of the entire transaction, taking the mystery, hassle and confusion of selling a house completely out of our hands.  Knowledgeable, dynamic, honest and up front-what else could you need-nothing-a joy to work with.”

 

~ Jack & Glenda Kessler:  Seller, Cupertino

~ Jeff Holifield & Michele Thompson:  Buyer/Seller, San Jose

........................................................................................................................................

 

“It has been a pleasure working with you.  The entire process was professional and seamless making it quite painless.  While it was professional, it was also fun.  Your knowledge of real estate and the area is phenomenal.  Your knowledge and resources are invaluable to newcomers and most probably to anyone else who is lucky enough to share them.  In this crazy, busy world it's always wonderful to have an experience as easy and pleasant as this has been.”

“Eileen is a dedicated professional who helped us find our dream home.  When we were looking through various homes, she was incredibly honest about specific aspects of the properties.  She was always accessible and ready to help us at a moment's notice.  Eileen's honesty, persistence and generosity are amazing attributes to find in a realtor.  We were lucky to have her represent us.”

 

~ Jeannine & Neil Wells:  Buyer/Seller, Campbell/San Jose

~ Teresa & Tom Coffey:  Buyer/Seller, Campbell

........................................................................................................................................


“After my mother passed away her older, somewhat poorly maintained 2 bedroom, 1 bath home in Willow Glen needed to be sold to enable division of my mother’s estate, which was in a living trust.  Eileen was extremely helpful outlining options and even helping with market pricing.  The house was on the market in no time and sold in its present condition.  Eileen's handling of the sale was efficient, thorough and competent.”

 ~ Joanne Moore:  Seller, Willow Glen(Now living in Pflugerville, TX)

........................................................................................................................................

 

“This letter is intended to express our sincere appreciation for the work of Mrs. Eileen Bosch.  By way of background, my wife and I solicited Mrs. Bosch when we were selecting a home in the Los Gatos/Saratoga vicinity in 2001.  Mrs. Bosch was highly recommended by several people with whom my wife and I came into contact.  We had interviewed several local realtors with various backgrounds and experiences, but we selected Mrs. Bosch based on her in-depth knowledge of the market, her educated opinion on home valuations, and her results orientation and masterful skills of negotiating.

 

While we have purchased and sold several homes over the past five years, never have we worked with such a consummate professional.  She demonstrated a thorough commitment to her profession by making herself constantly available to view properties which may have just come on the market or communicate with prospective buyers and sellers.  She was always well prepared and in most instances, we found that she could accurately pre-screen properties very effectively to leverage our time.

 

As the ultimate endorsement of our experience using Mrs. Bosch as our buying agent, we did not entertain using any other agent when we chose to sell our home in 2002.  Once again, Mrs. Bosch demonstrated that she could adeptly position the property for sale.  She advised us on changes we needed to make to the home, color brochures which needed to be developed, and pricing we needed to establish.  Suffice it to say, the property sold well above our expectations and we give Mrs. Bosch the accolades for our success.

 

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mrs. Bosch despite a frequently stressful event.  We can give no higher level of recommendation and we hope that one day we may work with her again.  As professionals, my wife and I appreciate the level of service and professionalism with which she works and we have never worked with anyone who approached her level of knowledge and skill."

 

~ Erik Prusch:  Buyer/Seller, Los Gatos/Saratoga(Now living in Minnetonka, MN)

........................................................................................................................................

 

“Eileen Bosch is a fine professional.  She knows her business and she knows her territory.  She knows what sells and why and when.  And she has an uncanny knack to know the kind of property that resonates with her clients.  Buying and selling property is rarely quick or easy.  With Eileen it is, however, both efficient and successful."

 

~ Andy Chorlton:  Buyer/Seller, Cupertino & San Jose

........................................................................................................................................

 

“What I like the most about having you as my agent was how you stood behind every decision (& indecision) that I made during my summer long house hunt.  Remember, my first offer was for that condo in Los Gatos.  I got it and the next day came down with "buyer’s remorse" and changed my mind when I told you.  Your expression didn't show any disappointment, you just said "Okay then, this is what we need to do right now to get out of it".  It was at that moment that I saw your commitment to get me into the "right place" shine through, and even though I had no idea where the home was that I truly wanted, I realized I had found the person who was going to find it for me, and you did, and I love my new home...Thank you so much.”

~ David C.:   Buyer, Campbell 

........................................................................................................................................

 

“Overall, we were extremely impressed by the way that you worked on our behalf to identify, finance, and purchase our home.  You brought considerable experience working in the real estate market and were able to educate us and keep us well informed throughout the process.  In particular we greatly appreciated your ability to:

 

We would be delighted to act as a reference for you in the future, and have unhesitatingly already recommended you to friends, who are equally impress with your services.  Thanks again for helping us to realize our dream of home ownership in California!”

 

~ Mike & Izalina Pegler:  Buyer, Los Gatos

~ Mike Kijak:  Seller, Sunnyvale

........................................................................................................................................

“Thanks for the continuing great jokes.  Dave and I had no idea we would get such a bonus choosing you as our realtor!  We need funnies.  Next Tue escrow on our new home closes.  Love, love, love being in Tucson.  A very "cool” place, and a good fit for us.  Hope you are having fun in the still hot hot real estate market.   We truly enjoyed working with you and forever indebted to S Frazer who demanded that I call you.”

 

~ Dave and Kathleen Sharp:  Seller, Los Gatos

........................................................................................................................................ 


“Eileen was extremely helpful in preparing me and my family as well as our property for sale which was a successful experience.  Her knowledge of the market, focused attention to details and accurate guidance lead to a sale that matched our target in both time and price.” 

 

~ Cono and Peggy:  Seller, Saratoga

........................................................................................................................................ 


“I'd again like to thank you for handling the sale of my home.  With me living in Florida and the property being in California, I felt very confident about the process with you in charge.  You are truly a professional and did an exceptional job.   I checked on the funds and they are safely in my account.  Debby at the title company was also wonderful to work with.  With her attention and communication, she made the transaction very smooth.”
