About Us

We focus on making our clients our #1 priority rather than focusing on being the number one realtors in the Bay Area.  With over 40 years of combined experience in real estate, The Jenkins Team has guided hundreds of clients in their quest to sell their home for the maximum return on investment and finding buyers the top schools, the best neighborhoods, and that special location for their new home.

 To make sure all of their clients’ real estate needs are handled in a timely manner, licensed realtor John Jenkins works as a team. For him, it is important that calls are promptly returned and for questions and concerns to be immediately answered, so that clients consistently receive the best possible service available in the real estate industry. Better service means less stress for everyone involved in the transaction.

Every real estate agent will promise to be there for you while you buy or sell your home, but will they be as responsive after the business is complete? The Jenkins Team is. John is committed to complete client satisfaction before, during and after that all-important transaction; his reputation and successful career has been built on referrals from happy, satisfied clients.

 John Jenkins takes a unusual approach to selling Real Estate. While it is true that every agent out there will try to sell your home, The Jenkins Team has developed an exclusive strategy that will actively market it. Utilizing skills learned outside of Real Estate, John has spent the last 23 years perfecting a comprehensive campaign to make sure that you get the highest possible price for your home.

“Before you decide to sell your home with anyone, give us the opportunity to show you our Exclusive Marketing Strategies that WORK!"
