Intero Real Estate East Bay

Innovation meets Influence

Before Silicon Valley was duly named, its history as the hotbed of innovation was well noted. Our catchy moniker reflects the giants of technology who line the corridors of Cupertino, Mountain View, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, and Sunnyvale, the wave of progressive firms that have shaped electronics, e-commerce and social interaction all call this place home.

In its truest form, innovation knows no boundaries. It isn’t contained by market or economic trends. Silicon Valley is where everyone gathers at the water cooler of progress, questioning why can’t things be better.

It’s from that fountain that the founders of Intero drank.

It was 2002. Silicon Valley was mired in the dot-com bust affecting all corners of the technology sector. As a result the local real estate market grinded to a halt. In true Silicon Valley spirit, that was the exact, perfect moment to launch a startup real estate brokerage.

Intero’s desire wasn’t to be like all other brokerages. Not only were we committed to providing our residents and neighbors a service that heralded the very nature of where we live, we owed it to our new neighbors, recruited from all over the world to come and work for many of the most creative, progressive companies on the planet.

Powered by an entirely new technology platform, backed by a solid investment, lead by a team of real estate veterans who were all born, raised and weaned right here in the Silicon Valley, Intero Real Estate Services was born.

While the dot-com bust remedied, in 2007, the real estate bubble burst and its subsequent effects on the market and economy we’re well documented. For us, this singled a moment in time to do what we do best - invest in our company and innovate further.

Over the past seven years, against the pressures of a challenging market, we continued to advance our training programs, update all of our technology, grow our brand into other markets and build a luxury division. The best is yet to come!

Bob LeFevre recommends Kamiar Farhadnia

Kamiar was very professional and easy to work with when he listed and sold our condominium.
He explained the entire process to us, and followed through with everything he promised. It was a pleasure working with him.

Nazar AlQuraishi recommends Kamiar Farhadnia


I was very impressed by the work Mr. Kamiar did for me. I have been in business with many real estate agents before but I have never seen someone that goes out of his way to help even in the preparation of the property that I was selling. His advice was well taken and proved to be very effective. I really feel very glad that I Knew him and for certain I will be using his services in the future.

The Ibarras Family recommends Dao Trieu

“My wife and I would like to recommend Dao Trieu to anyone seeking to buy or to sell a home. We recently sold our home in Union City and Dao…was outstanding in her thoroughness, her professionalism, and her knowledge. We are very happy and satisfied with her work and would not hesitate to call on her again. We highly recommend Dao…”

The Parker Family recommends Dao Trieu

“We found her courteous, honest, patient, prompt with her appointments, and very knowledgeable in her profession. In addition, she was exceptional diligent in working to get the best price and to net as much as possible for us, which made us extremely happy.”

The Lus Family recommends Dao Trieu

“We are very satisfied with Dao’s skills and effort to market our house. She helped us staging our house so that we did get the highest price possible. She made it so convenience for us to show the house and sold it in 2 days.”

The Phipps Family recommends Dao Trieu

“Dao Trieu, a realtor with ERA, sold our home in Union City. Words cannot explain her professionalism and what a pleasant and rewarding experience we had with Dao. She is friendly, has integrity and is and a conscientious and very hard working person. We will happily recommend Dao as a realtor as we are satisfied clients.”

Robert Butler recommends Dao Trieu

Initially I noticed Dao was involved with the Union City community because she published a short news letter about the area where my property was located. After considering other agents along with Dao, I realized she seemed to be more motivated on getting the listing. She seemed to be agreeable with most of my suggestions and would give me both pros and cons on any suggestion.

After signing Dao, she immediately prepped the property for showing during the open house and held open houses virtually every other weekend until the property was in escrow. She put in the extra effort of keeping the property looking as it did from the initial open house and notified me of any problems with the property. Overall Dao stayed intensely involved with the property until after close of escrow.

I would recommend Dao if you want to get your property sold and not just listed on the MLS forever.

Sunil Assao recommends Jayanta Samanta


Having lived in our first home for almost 12 years, we were ready for an upgrade. Me and my wife had our wish list. That's where Jayanta came in to guide us. He helped us to understand how much we could afford, researching the target area, the market trend, and the future potential of the property.

After working with us patiently for a few months, we were able to successfully buy a home that we are extremely happy about. He truly worked hard to close this deal for a great value. Thank you Jayanta.

Alfredo Ticas recommends Elena Garcia

Director of Support Services

Elena did a great job with the sale of my house. She was very proactive in marketing my house and used the latest methods to do so. She had great photos taken by a professional as well as a video showing the entire house and the neighborhood. Moreover, Elena was very communicative and kept me apprised throughout the whole process. She did a great job of letting me know what to expect. She told me to expect a good turnout for the open house weekend, and she was correct. All weekend it was a non-stop stream of people coming to see the house, even outside of open house hours. I was able to choose which of the nine offers I received. I am utterly delighted with how she handled the entire process and have recommended her to family members. Overall, she did a wonderful job!

Deepa Ramachandra recommends Jas Bains

We met Gurveer, during an open house event, within a month from then Jas and Gurveer made us settle in our dream home. Jas is very knowledgable with the process of buying a home, specifically for first time home buyers like us. She helped us from the outset, until we moved in. I guess she's been doing this for a long time that she manages being a realtor and guide very gracefully. Now Jas is more a friend than a realtor, whom we reach out to for any advice or suggestions we need with our home. We know for sure, if we were to buy a house in the future, we will certainly be working with Jas.

Carl & Elaine Sousa recommends Steven R. Lloyd

Livermore, Ca.

We have bought a home in Livermore to be close to our family. Steven Lloyd was an outstanding Realtor in the entire process. It was especially difficult for us because we lived 4 hours away. We had to make several trips to Livermore to find the right home, but without Steven, it would have been much more difficult. He kept us informed on a daily basis and guided us through the entire process. Steven is a professional and very approachable. We appreciate his knowledge and guidance through this entire process. We have been in our new home for 2 weeks and Steven still keeps in touch to make sure all is well. If we have any questions or concerns, we call on Steven and he is there. We are very appreciative for everything he has done for us and highly recommend his services for anyone looking to purchase a home.

Parth Dhebar recommends Jayanta Samanta


Being a first time home time buyer can always be a difficult process. Jayanta not only made the process simple and easy to understand, but taught me a lot about the housing market along the way.

Whether you are a first time home buyer or looking to buy another home, I would definitely recommend Jayanta to anyone that is looking to buy a property in the Bay Area.

Allison Gregg recommends Rosemary Vaccaro-Dutra

We were very pleased with our home-buying experience with Rosemary as our realtor. Rosemary came very highly recommended by a co-worker, and she did not disappoint. This was our first time buying a home, and one of the best things about working with her was how she explained to us every step of the way what to expect and what was going on. She was very responsive and timely in all communications, and very prompt when dealing with the paperwork that had to go to the various groups (loan, sellers, escrow company, etc.). We felt that she was always an advocate for our best interest, and negotiated the best deal possible for us. Also, she was very knowledgable in the Livermore housing market, and suggested a spot-on offer value based on comps, which allowed for our offer to be accepted over numerous other offers. In such a competitive housing market, it is so necessary to have a knowledgeable, experienced, and well-respected realtor, and Rosemary was all of those things. We will definitely be using her if ever needed in the future, and highly recommend her.
