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,

Mary M. recommends Joraine Costales

Joraine and Marc are amazing. #TheCostalesTeam #WhoYouWorkWithMatters is their hashtag. They're such an awesome team. It is true it matters who you work with. I called Joraine a year ago just to ask how to go about selling our condo. We bought the condo from my parents a year before. Joraine adviced me to wait another year to sell it. I waited and once we hit 2 years I called her back. She went to my house within a couple of days to let me and my husband what to expect. Once we put our condo in the market in less than two weeks it was sold. Joraine was able to get more for our condo. My husband and I were so happy because now we have money to put down for our first house. We told Joraine what house we liked she went to see it and we made an offer. Even though there was multiple offers she was able to get ours. We were basically competing offers with cash. She's that GOOD. She even got the seller to repair section 1 and 2 items. Seller also gave us a closing credit. If you are looking for someone that will walk you through the process and it doesn't matter what time it is Joraine and Marc will be there. Any questions from how to go about selling or buying a home to how to increase the value of your house. #TheCostalesTeam will be there for. Plus their opens house are awesome they serve food not just cheese and cracker they had garlic shrimp on my open house. They do tacos too

Rachel Solidum recommends Joraine Costales

I am an escrow officer with Fidelity National Title in Burlingame and I love working with Joraine. She is an agent that is very well organized and very involved in her transactions. She truly cares about her clients and takes the time to be with them every step of the way. She is always willing to go the extra mile.

Girish Bangalore recommends Rishi Bakshi

Realtor®

I interviewed five brokerages before I settled on Rishi. I connect with people emotionally but I am very analytical too. Rishi was very prompt in responding to my voice mail even though he was in the middle of an event and out of town. When I did meet Rishi, one-on-one, his personality came out as very calm and self-assured - the signs of a person who knows what he/she is doing. He was straight forward and quickly understood my needs by asking the right questions. He was very reasonable in the terms of our work agreement (of course I compared it to what other brokerages offered). He left me no doubt that he stood out among other brokerages that I had talked to. Congenial, professional, prompt and a great listener.

Dial forward six months, Rishi has impressed me with his leadership skills - agility, knowledge, decision making, foresightedness and empathetic. Always willing to give time and help, no matter of what time of day I can be assured that he will respond to phone calls and texts especially when it's important.

I am very happy to state that Rishi has impressed me over and over again both as a leader/business owner and a human being. I wish him years of continued success and good health.

Venkataramani Arunachalam recommends Sayed Wahezi

Senior software engineer

Sayed was a highly knowledgeable and experienced realtor. He arrived for the house visits on or before scheduled time and gave us valuable feedback about the houses. Even during offer process, he recommended us to add 10-day loan contingency even though I was planning to go with no contingencies. It actually turned out to be a great advice when the loan process moved very slow due to bureaucracy and helped us to feel safe about our deposit money. I would highly recommend Sayed.

Dan Martin recommends Sayed Wahezi

Sayed was very helpful and knowledgeable. He explained to us the whole process right from the start and he told us what to expect. He was also very quick to response evertime I had a question and he's very active when it comes to making offers.

NehaBhanu Prakash recommends Sayed Wahezi

Buyer

Sayed is the true adviser you need when you are dealing with real estate. He is honest and very hard working and knows exactly what his client needs. He shares all the details about the property and how to proceed with placing an offer, pro's and con's upfront. He is very responsive and never once did we feel that he could have handled our home buying experience differently. He even followed up after the selling process was complete to check on us. I highly recommend Sayed for his simplicity & honesty.

Prathamesh recommends Sayed Wahezi

Buyer

Sayed was very helpful throughout the process. Being a first time buyer, he was patient with me and thoroughly answered all my questions. Also, at no point did it ever seem that Sayed was misleading me about anything. He was honest in everything, and also guided me about how to get some work done in the house, if I ever wanted to do anything.

Jaspreet Kaur recommends Harman Sandhu

Buyer

Harman represented us in buying our new house by helping us locate and shortlist the relevant areas and properties which met our specific requirements for a given budget and located in our desired & proffered neighborhoods. It was such a phenomenal experience considering the market knowledge he possesses and the bond you feel especially when you are working on one of the most significant deals of your lifetime. He laid out the optimized plan of action after detailed analysis which streamlined our search in the most effective and relevant direction.

Harman also represented us in selling our old home and collectively its been an absolute pleasure working with a professional like him.
I highly recommend Harman for any of your Real Estate needs and I assure he will keep your interests and rights on the table with the highest priority.

Raminderpal Mahal recommends Harman Sandhu

Project Manager

The word to describe my experience working with Harman would simply be ‘Smooth’. He sold our house in less than average days on the market at over the asking price, negotiated the best offer on our next house, hence making our move amazingly effortless and exciting as it should always be !

He was very detailed oriented and meticulous about the way he presented our property, conducted his open houses and played his best cards at the crunch time in order to negotiate the best deal for us. He was very much involved and concerned on the personal level while giving us all the space to make comfortable decisions.

I would strongly recommend Harman’s REALTY services if you are thinking of making your next move ! Your interest would be his paramount duty whether you are selling or buying, I have personally been through both experiences and will surely classify them as ‘Satisfaction Personified’ and served at an optimum level.

Tina Ulep recommends Margaret Lin

To say that Margaret is an excellent realtor is an understatement — for me, she is EXCEPTIONAL. I’ve worked with many real estate agents in the past, and Margaret is simply the best realtor I’ve known. She’s been our realtor since 2009 and she has helped us with 4 different real estate transactions — as seller’s agent to 2 tough short sale transactions, as buyer’s agent when we bought our condo, and as seller’s agent again when we sold our condo recently. In all those 4 transactions, she consistently gave us the best service that we could possibly get.

Here are some qualities that I really like about Margaret:

- she acts quickly and is very proactive
- she’s always on top of things
- she always keeps us updated
- she is very hardworking
- she always keeps her clients best interest in mind
- she is funny and easy to get along with

Having the above qualities make Margaret an “excellent” realtor, but what sets her apart from other realtors are the following qualities that make her an “exceptional” realtor:

1.) She would do anything just to make things easier for her clients, even the tasks that are outside the scope of her job as a realtor. When we moved out of state, it was difficult for us to monitor the construction/renovation that was going on in our condo in California. Luckily, Margaret was there to help us. She would always check up on the progress of our condo and made sure that the contractor was doing his job properly. She even helped us shop around for materials so that we could get the best bang for our buck!

2.) She’s very innovative and aggressive with her marketing strategies. As a matter of fact, we already got an offer for our condo even before it was listed on MLS. In contrast, the other 3 condo units being sold in our complex at that time had been in the market for months. If we didn’t have Margaret, our house would probably still be sitting in the market waiting for a buyer to come.

3.) She has excellent negotiation skills both as a buyer’s agent and as a seller’s agent. She doesn’t easily back down in negotiations. In our recent sale, we were able to sell the house for $35K above the listing price despite the fact that the other home prices in the area were dropping down.


Margaret isn’t just a realtor for us. She has become our friend, and we consider her part of our family. Thank you, Margaret, for all the services you’ve provided us all these years!
