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!

Katherine was the agent I used for the purchase of my new home in Livermore. Her knowledge of the area, creativity, and ability to pull together the perfect deal made all the difference in getting me the home I wanted. She stayed on top of every detail to ensure nothing fell through the cracks and proactively helped solution problems before they were an issue. Katherine's high energy, positive attitude made what is ordinarily a stressful activity into an enjoyable experience. I highly recommend Katherine and would not hesitate to work with her again!

Marie Hughes recommends Margaret Lin


My husband and I were trying to get our house ready for sale for months but not making much progress. Margaret provided the expertise and impetus we needed to chose a contractor and finish decluttering. I’m pretty sure we’d still be in that house if it were not for her.

Once on the market, she was able to bring in a quality offer above our asking price! She also was very helpful in crafting the offer for the home we were buying. We were able to get it below asking price and lower than we were willing to pay — pretty much unheard of in this market thanks to her negotiation skills.
