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!

Mike Rodriguez recommends David Azimi

Chief Design Officer

David really is as great as it gets. He is friendly, savvy & knowledgeable. He found us a great new home so fast that we went into escrow, while still needing to sell our previous home. He handled this tight timeline magnificently. He is an absolutely wonderful professional to work with.

Timothy Madrid recommends Michelle Lee

Retired science teacher

As my realtor, Michelle Lee has been there for me every step of the way. I had complete faith on how she handled the sale of my house. She has been diligent in providing me with boxes in which to pack my belongings, and instrumental in providing the best scenarios to help sell my house. Her guidance in setting up my garage sale was important to me. In negotiation with possible buyers, she has had my best interests at heart, and has negotiated a price for my house that I thought was in time to the housing market. My house sold in 5 days to a couple that literally feel in love with my house and for them i am grateful.
I would recommend Michelle as a realtor to anyone, as she has done a magnificent job of selling my house.

Sushama Kalidindi recommends Gowthami Chinnam

Gowthami and Lakshman helped us buy our first home recently and did a fabulous job. As a first time home buyers we know very little about the home buying process. Lakshman and gowthami did a great job educating us around the various nitty-gritties and was also extremely patient in answering all our questions. Without them we wouldn't have got the home. We had a great experience with them. We highly recommend them for our friends and family.

Sreeni Jaladanki recommends Kim Deol


Buying a house for the first time can be a daunting and intimidating process. Kim's experience, patience and knowledge helped keep us at ease the entire time. In addition, her high attention to detail ensured that all pieces of the buying process came together to not only ensure we attained our home, but also had a smooth first home buying experience.

She also helped us bidding 9k below the asking price and made sure we get it. Her outstanding help doesn't limit to buying process, it's more of a bonding and trust and you can reach to her for any issues be it home security/gardener.

I will definitely recommend her. You could estimate her experience by the fact that we put the offer on 20th July and got our keys on 14th August. She has pretty good team of loan broker/ inspection/ Documentation/Escrow. We highly recommend her.

We have moved several times and have to say Kim Deol is the most efficient real estate professional we have encountered. Kim was referred to us by a friend who recently used her services.

She is clear and direct in her communication, sets expectations and always follows up.

We worked with Gowthami and Lakshman to buy our first house, they immediately understood our requirements and made sure we understand each and every step of the home buying process.

Very Satisfied Client

Pia and Mohammad were both very hardworking and made us feel that they were with us all through out the homebuying process. I was always anxious and I cannot forget what Pia said, " Let us turn that anxiety into excitement." She is always positive and reassuring. Mohammad on the other hand is very detailed and makes sure that everything will be smooth flowing. He always say, " We can do our best but it is always according to HIS will." We are very happy and satisfied to have worked with this great tandem. I am highly recommending them to anybody who needs to fulfill their dream of owning a house.

Sarah Perkins recommends David Azimi

Human Resource Specialist

My husband and I needed a realtor to help us find and purchase our first home. We heard of David through different friends and family members, who all highly recommended him. Now we see why! He is very thorough, patient, and wants to make sure his clients are comfortable throughout the whole home buying process. With his many years of experience, we knew that we were in good hands. With his help, we are now proud homeowners.

Lily Wanardi recommends Alfredo Ledesma


I have yet to work under the wing of a person who is more a mentor than a boss. Working with Alfredo has been pure pleasure and I have learn all that I know about real estate from him, he is incredibly generous with his time and expertise.

I have known him for a little over a year, he is solely responsible for the number of agents that have join the company, not to mention increase in sales of the homes.

Being one of the greatest motivators I have met, he is the go to person when conflicts arise! He looks out for his team but is not one to draw attention to himself deliberately-his work does that for him. He has built a reputation as someone who has a broad vision and this vision is what will take a company places.

Julie McGinnis recommends David Azimi

Prem Lakhanpal recommends Alfredo Ledesma

Real Estate Salesperson

Highly knowledgable, intelligent, professional, sincere, ridiculously efficient, and yet very humble and flexible—these are but a few traits that distinguish Alfredo Ladesma as a Realtor and a Manager! Ever since associating with Intero Real Estate Services, Pleasanton about six months back, I have been working under his able guidance and mentorship, which certainly is a rare opportunity. Alfredo is blessed with a charismatic and awe-inspiring personality that impresses and attracts anyone who comes into his contact. With his amazing communication skills, he can handle even the toughest situations and clients—effortlessly. While dealing with Agents and Staff of Pleasanton office, Alfredo acts less as Manager and more as a friend and a collaborator and respects his colleagues, which makes him very popular and successful.
As for his clients, Alfredo is a very sincere, knowledgable and dedicated Real Estate Broker who empathizes with his Sellers and Buyers and always keeps their interest above any other consideration. Being a local resident, he knows the real estate market of Bay Area fully well and sees to it that the transactions close smoothly. Thus, Alfredo helps his clients realize their dream of owning a beautiful home without any stress.
I wish him all the very best!!
