Satisfied La Quinta Real Estate Buyers Tell the Story

Janine was amazing from the first first phone call we had with her to list our house. Our home was listed and well prepared by Janine’s team for showings- which makes a huge difference in how potential buyers view your home. We anticipated a longer sale time due to listing the home over the summer months but with Janine’s extensive network we had many showings over a two month period and ultimately sold our home in under 4 months. We couldn’t be happier with the amazing professional and personal service Janine and her team provided to us over the short time it took to sell our home.

Janine Stevens of Bennion Deville Homes was the realtor that handled the sale of my home in LA Quinta, California. Not only is Janine very personable and efficient but she is also very organized & exceedingly professional. I appreciated the weekly updates that she sent to me which kept me informed of the activity on my property & her vigilance when the property was being viewed by other realtors & their clients was also greatly appreciated.

Janine’s attention to minute details during the close of escrow was of great help to me since I was away at that time. She made certain that everything proceeded smoothly & for that I am very grateful. I would definitely recommend Janine Stevens to any one looking for a very competent & helpful realtor.

Our experience with Janine was a sellers dream.

Janine and her team handled both sides of our transaction with top notch professionalism from the time we listed our home with her until it closed escrow. Janine and her team were always available to answer any question and made sure they were at our home for any showings.

We would highly recommend Janine as she is a true professional in every sense of the word.

As an out of area buyer I was very fortunate to have Janine Stevens as my agent. Janine is a very knowledgeable and professional agent with a great attitude and I couldn’t be happier with results.

Whenever I had any questions, Janine always responded quickly. Even now after the deal is done, she still answers my questions promptly.

Excellent service and Great Agent! Thank you Janine!

Indian Wells, CA

We would absolutely use Janine Stevens to buy or sell another area property and would recommend her to anyone else doing the same!

Our house was advertised regularly and also appeared on a variety of real estate websites. The photographs of our home were taken by a professional and they were very high quality. We especially liked that Janine, or her assistant Sally, were always present during showings of our property--therefore, no lockbox available to hundreds of realtors!

Janine handled both sides of our transaction, and was as capable helping us find a new home as she was in selling our existing property. We had a relatively short time to find a new home, but Janine never tried to steer us to a more expensive property, instead focusing on finding us the home that would best fit our needs. She's the best!!

We have had the good fortune of moving more than a dozen times during my professional career always with excitement to explore a new environment. We researched what realtor had a significant professional presence, coupled with local knowledge in La Quinta and Janine Stevens was an easy selection. We were on a limited timeline with our search for a home in La Quinta and with the exchange of a few emails and phone call Janine narrowed our search to exactly what we were seeking. Janine and her team followed thru every step of the 45 day escrow including final walk thru in our absence. We have already recommended Janine professional services and will continue to do so for those seeking homes in this region.

She and her team are responsive from assisting with contractors, inspections, etc. to answering all of my questions (even the dumb ones!). You will be very happy with Janine. I guarantee it!!

Janine Stevens was referred to us by very good friends and new local residents who purchased their home in PGA West with her excellent services. They were extremely pleased with her performance and highly recommended her. To say that we were delighted with her representation in our ultimate purchase would be great understatement. Her patience as we reviewed numerous homes was exceptional. She handled our ultimate transaction, representing both buyer and seller, with flawless integrity, resulting in a contract acceptable to everyone. Her considerable experience in this area, and knowledge of contract details culminated in our purchase, and we are extremely grateful for her support. And, besides all of this she is capable of leaping tall buildings in a single bound!

Janine Stevens is excellent at negotiating contracts, getting closure, and providing service at high standards. She is a good fit for busy individuals who expect a smooth transaction. Janine and her team put in a lot of time and hard work behind the scene to make the transaction effortless for the client. She has worked two transactions for us, and we will use her again.

Dan and Cheryl

We originally listed our home with a very well known and connected realtor at PGA West. Our listing sat for six months with very little activity through the high season. When our listing expired, we contacted Janine Stevens.

We liked her approach and decided to list our property with her. She sold our home in 10 days for 2% less than asking. She was engaged and very practical in her approach . As a business person I totally appreciated her professionalism.

Joe and Diane

We have had several transactions with Janine over the past 15 years. Each one was easily completed because of Janine’s knowledge, and her attention to detail. Each one was pleasant because of her cheerfulness and her ability to relate well with everyone. Do yourself a big favor and use her on your next deal.

What we appreciated most about Janine and Laura was their responsiveness and attention to detail in the sale of our home. We live in Washington, and the timely emails and faxes were so smooth it was like we were next door. Our sale to a happy buyer closed in under 14 days, which in this market is both a triumph and a testament to their skill. Thank you both for your patience and support!

We have known Janine Stevens for over ten years. Janine is the most knowledgeable person we have met in the real estate business. In all of our negotiations and conversations with Janine we have witnessed her honesty and integrity. She is extremely loyal and helpful to her clients. When we first traveled to the Coachella Valley and toured the many different communities it was over whelming. Janine, in her patient way, guided us through a process that ultimately brought us to the home we loved. The fact she is one of the top producers in the valley speaks highly of her reputation. Janine knows how to put a purchase and sale together to the satisfaction of her client. We have complete confidence in Janine and her ability to represent her us. Janine Stevens provides the best service a client could imagine in buying and selling a home in the Coachella Valley. She is the best.

Having spent the last 30 years in the commercial and residential real estate business as an builder and owner, I can say without any hesitation that Janine is the hardest working, most efficient and knowledgeable of her market of any agent I have ever had any dealings with. Throughout the numerous transactions in which Janine has represented me there have never been an instance where Janine did not already have the answer to question or solution to a problem. I recommend Janine to anyone requiring a true professional who enjoys her work and is a joy to work with.

Rancho Sante Fe, CA


Janine Stevens served as my real estate agent for a home I recently purchased in La Quinta. I have bought several homes and industrial properties in the past and found Janine to be, by far, the best realtor I have ever used. She knew the area and market well and she was very patient to find the right home and opportunity for us.

Pacific Palisades

Since 1997, Janine has represented us in selling and in purchasing our properties in PGA West. Whether we were buying or selling, she knew what our goals were and helped us realize them.

Janine’s extensive knowledge of real estate is remarkable. She uses that knowledge to pair our wants to what is available.

Her attention to every detail of the transaction coupled with the continued focus of her assistant Sally makes working with her a pleasure.

Janine is a professional in the truest sense of the word.
