Intero Real Estate Union City

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 things can’t 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, led 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 were well documented. For us, this signaled 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 sub brand.

We did all this because this is who we are.

In 2014,

Nidhi Narendra recommends Jayanta Samanta

We met Jayanta accidentally and luckily the journey has been amazing. Jayanta has been very careful in understanding our needs and find the best house for us. Since we were the first time buyers, he helped us with some of the house related info even after closing and moving in. House became home and we are in love with our home ever since.

Mert Turkoglu recommends Carlos Nuñez, Jr

I bought a home in August 2018 in Hayward California and Carlos has helped me to see some of the homes I found online. He was very professional, friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. He's also born and raised in Hayward and gave me so many helpful insights that most agents wouldn't have been able to. I'd recommend Carlos to everyone. Thanks a lot Carlos. You were a great help!

Marcelina Cervantes recommends Carlos Nuñez, Jr

Carlos was very patient and detail oriented throughout our whole home buying process. He never gave up on helping us find the right home and even after we were all moved into our new home he was very helpful. As first-time home buyers he helped us every step of the way. We highly recommend Carlos Nunez to our friends and family.

Sophena liem recommends Michelle Lee


Michelle was extremely helpful through our entire process of selling our home and buying a new home. She is very knowledgeable and walks you through each step with patience. She was always available for questions and for appointments, even on her days off and she was pregnant at that time. My family and I have a lot of questions and concern about the house we brought and the home we are selling. And yet, Michelle was very patience with all the questions we have. We are very impress with her negotiation skills. She was able to help me sold my home and get me the new home on the same day with this hot market. I mean, let's be realistic, who would want to sell their home to a buyer on contingent the buyer to sell their home while there's multiple offers. And Michelle did it. She has saved me a lot of headache. To me that’s a phenomenon job. Not only that, she also sold my house with the highest price in the neighborhood. We would definitely recommend Michelle to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home. Her expertise, experience and dedication to her job is one of a kind! We look forward to working with her again in the future when we buy my next home!

Cornell & Pam recommend Michelle Lee

Michelle Lee . . . we can’t say enough about her. We met Michelle at a time when the market was just starting to take a turn down, but she wasn’t discouraged and said for us not to worry about anything . . . that she would see to it that the end result would be just what we were hoping for. Well, she didn’t disappoint. Michelle has a confidence in herself as a real estate agent that shines through and we felt good about working with her. She had a marketing plan and course of action in place as soon as we signed a contract and she went to work immediately getting the house staged, photographed, listed on the MLS and posted on the various real estate websites.
Michelle is professional and knowledgeable in her field. She’s energetic, organized and worked tirelessly with us. She is easy to communicate with and always responded quickly to our phone calls and emails taking the time to listen to us with any concerns or questions we may have had. Michelle kept us encouraged and informed throughout the sale process.
Well, the results speak for themselves. Michelle exceeded our expectations. Everything fell into place and we had an amazingly short close of escrow. Working with Michelle was a great experience and we highly recommend her for your real estate needs. And to top it off, we not only had the best real estate agent, we now have a new friend. What a Blessing!

Clair S. Segui Mine recommends Ruel Asino

This letter of reference is written in behalf of Mr. Ruel Asino, he is a realtor with Intero group. He was our realtor when we decided to purchase a new home back in November and was with us until we found one that was perfect for us. Our search was not without highs and lows and he was there to support us. Ruel was always available to talk on the phone and even in the late evening and provided good information regarding potential homes. He was flexible with his schedule as well. The happiest day for me and my husband was when we finally got the house and Ruel was there when we signed our documents.

I am available to talk to you if you have any questions just ask Ruel for my number.

Jamie recommends Cat Hernandez

Cat started out as our realtor when we PCS to El Paso. She helped us find our rental and was so good we didn't have to stay in a hotel and waste time house hunting. She did the house hunting for us! 5 months later we decided we wanted to buy a house. She did such a great job with our rental we signed with her to help us find our home. We just closed on a beautiful 4 bedroom 3 bath last week. She is not only our realtor but a great family friend now! So thankful for all her hard work!

Rohini S recommends Mukesh Kumar

Software Engineer.

If you are planning to buy a home in bay area Mukesh Kumar is your guy !!! He not only helped us but guided us through our entire journey of buying our dream home. When we started our journey a year ago we were clueless about this entire process , Mukesh actively drove us around in his car to all the houses . Our search continued with him till we absolutely loved something and thought of purchasing it . For every house we have toured with him he would honestly mention all the pros and cons . More than our agent he was a friend helping us in this entire process. The best part about him is he knows his job the best he has great knowledge and experience of BayArea housing market , he would never force or ask you to put an offer on house you don't like or you are not sure about. He would give his honest review on every house as if he is going to buy it. I would Highly Recommend him as it is very important to have an honest and hard working person who knows his job the best to be on your side in this tiring process of house purchase.
