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!

Melissa and Adam Hobson recommend Casey Nguyen

We met Casey at an open house back in August 2019. Casey helped us navigate the Bay Area Real Estate Market and get the most out of our budget. She worked hard to make sure we got everything we wanted and negotiated so many things that we never would have thought of. We have recommended her to any friends that are looking for a real estate agent.

Ullanda Davis recommends Casey Nguyen

Safety Engineer

Casey is a solid agent. She is professional, knowledgeable, and an impressive communicator. The thing I loved most about working with Casey is that she took the time to get to know me and personalized my experience that aligned with me. That effort alone goes along way and I’m extremely happy with my home. In addition, she went above and beyond to ensure I was taken care of throughout the purchasing process and after closing she assisted with making sure my home was in great condition before I relocated! I can’t thank her enough and I’m truly grateful our paths crossed.

A T recommends Casey Nguyen

Casey was wonderful to work with! As a first time home buyer, it can be a daunting ordeal to buy in the Bay Area especially with bidding wars. Casey was very patient, personable and very prompt to reply to all our questions. She was well aware of active litigation for a couple of risky condo complexes and saved us a lot of time & money by alerting us not to consider them. She always kept our interest at heart. When we found a home that met all our criteria, she moved extremely quickly with helping us put a strong and competitive offer. When it came to closing, she has excellent connections, be it loan specialist, who gave us a good rate, plumber, termite inspector, home inspection specialist, and even an affordable electrician for home improvements. High recommend!

Sridhar Nedumaran recommends Casey Nguyen

Casey Nguyen was our realtor and she helped us selling our home quickly and more than our asking price. She is professional and as an agent absorbs all the hurdles in the selling process and keeps us in peace.
I will recommend her for any one who is looking for a realtor and we are fortunate to have her as our realtor.

Esmeralda Alcala recommends Susana De Leon

Administrative

Susana de Leon was instrumental listing and selling our home. I found her to be knowledgeable, approachable, responsive and calm. Selling your first home can be heart wrenching experience bc while you may know it is time to move on it is still difficult to let go. Susana managed to create a potentially stressful process into a calm and enjoyable experience one where we were able to clearly and objectively review your choices and navigate the transaction of selling your home. If you are in the market to buy or sell I would recommend that you too meet with Susana and let her guide you through the process.

Sophia Mattingly recommends Steven Lloyd

Steven was extremely professional, helpful and knowledgeable in helping us navigate the process of selling my mother-in-laws home after she passed away. This was the first time we were responsible for executorship of a trust and the process was emotional and overwhelming. Living out of town only added to the stress of selling a home, but Steven's ability to connect with clients, honesty, and frequent and transparent communication alleviated a lot of that stress. He clearly explained and walked us through every step of the process and frequently went above and beyond on multiple occasions. He was accessible and responsive and when he says he is a full service agent, he means it. Steven was there for all of our needs from staging the house to moving carloads of books to a used bookstore himself. His advice was spot on and it is clear he has his fingers on the pulse of the market helping us secure a no contingency offer for well over asking in just a matter of days. From the initial meeting to the closing, Steven was with us through the entire process. We cannot recommend Steven enough to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Jas Bhatia recommends Elena Garcia

Customer Service Specialist

I had already decided to sell my house but had been procrastinating until I received a letter in the mail. It was from Elena. I decided to give her a call and see what happened. As soon as we started talking, I felt very comfortable with her. We set up the initial meeting right away. Before our meeting I received a package from Elena with an introduction letter and a beautifully put together book detailing Intero Real Estate Services and a comprehensive plan to sell your home. I was so impressed with the classy packet and the professionalism it exuded. It not only impressed me, it made me feel like a special customer and I couldn’t wait to meet her.
As soon as we met, I felt very comfortable with her. She spent a good deal of time going over all the details. She took her time to answer any questions I had without making me feel rushed to finish our meeting. Even before our meeting was over, I had already decided that I was going to go with her. She impressed me with her knowledge, her professionalism, and the confidence in herself.
As soon as she knew we were going with her, she started working. She took a tour of my house and suggested what work she thinks we should do. She also, told me that it was entirely up to me if I wanted to get the work done or not. To be honest I started to feel overwhelmed and nervous about getting the work done. I also worried about how I was going to afford all that. She told me I didn’t need to worry about anything because she was going to handle everything. She said, all I needed to do was to pack my stuff. That made me feel so much better.
The next thing I knew, Elena had already reached out to all her contacts to get quotes for all the work that needed to be done. She did not waste any time. She told me I could shop around for quotes too and we will go with the best ones that work for me. She got me the best quotes and great workers that did a fantastic job. She made sure I didn’t have to pay any more than I could afford. I was so amazed with her ability to multi-task and to juggle everything around when scheduling all the contractors. I had to get painting, landscaping, new floors in the bedrooms, along with a stager who needed to be squeezed in between the contractors because the stager was going out of town that week. Elena worked her magic and made it all happen. That too at a really good price. She got my house ready to list in 1 week. Even my neighbor across the street was impressed at how fast Elena got everything done. She said, “I can tell, you have a really good agent, I am so impressed with her.” Elena had 3 other listings at the same time, and not once did she make me feel like I was not her utmost priority and an important client of hers. She was always available to me. Whether it be via phone call, text messaging, emailing, or meeting in person. I’m pretty sure she made all her other clients feel the same way because that’s who Elena is. My house was sold within a week. Elena worked tirelessly till the end to get me the best offer I could get. I didn’t even imagine I could get that much until she made it happen. I cannot tell you how happy I was. I kept telling all my friends and family about her and they all agreed that she was heaven sent. I have moved around quite a bit in my life and never have I ever worked with such a dedicated agent. She is just an all-around great human being who goes above and beyond to help others. There’s a quote right at the top of the introduction page in the Intero Real Estate Services book Elena sent me.
“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.” I had heard and seen this quote many times before, but I had never felt the truth of it until I met Elena. She is a true example of this quote.
Elena became a good friend of mine who still helps me when ever I need. I would strongly recommend Elena to anyone who is looking for the best real estate agent around.
Thank you, Elena!!!

Ariel L Troncoso recommends Jakub Nytko

Seller Paseo Plaza Condo

Jakub is an excellent realtor and businessman. From listing to closing, Jakub was there all the way for us. The Paseo Plaza condo was difficult to sell in this market but he pulled off a miracle. It was his professionalism, attention to detail, going above and beyond for his clients make him invaluable. He was a team player bringing all parties to the same table and closing the transaction. He kept us informed throughout the process such as after open houses and offering excellent judgement in pricing in selling the property. We felt very fortunate to have him on our side and recommend him unreservedly to you. We moved to east coast and we knew he was the right man for the job. He made himself available at all times to communicate and counsel us as if we were in the same room with him. He is a winner and one would be very fortunate to have him sell your property. He made us feel like we were his only client. Yes, he is that good. Sell with Jakub.

Kathy Johansson recommends Angela Adams

Angela came highly recommended to me by a friend and I consider myself very fortunate to have had her as my agent in selling my home.
She demonstrated her knowledge and expertise and was extremely helpful as she guided me during each phase including documents, preparing the home for show, and coordinating all other support activities needed for a successful sale.
She communicated regularly keeping me abreast of all updates and was available to me at any time to answer questions, provide advice, and give support when I needed it.
I highly recommend Angela to anyone selling their home.

Perla Mijares recommends Eileen Reyes

I was virtually introduced to Eileen by 2 close friends who highly recommended her to assist my son and his wife who wanted to sell their condo and move to a new home with their 2 young kids. It was a great learning experience working with Eileen. She was very thorough and professional. After the condo was sold, she immediately proceeded with locating homes for sale in the area we wanted to move to, and setting up the appointments to check out the homes. She felt the urgency to find a house that my son and his wife, along with their 2 kids, wanted and would feel comfortable settling in. I really appreciated how she was on top of things and how she kept us all informed every step of the way. We understand that selling a house and purchasing a new one could be difficult and complex processes, but Eileen provided guidance and made the steps easy and understandable for us. She was great! I personally witnessed her patience and integrity. She made herself available in the evenings and on weekends, proactively getting answers to our various questions. No matter how stressed out we got, she was calm and serene. I appreciate her friendly manner in how she dealt with different situations, and going above and beyond to help us. I am looking forward to working with Eileen again and would highly recommend her to my family and friends.

The Devega family will be forever thankful for helping us and making the transition from selling to buying a home easy and fun. God bless you and your family

Joel A. Mansfield Jr. recommends Cindy O'Leary

Mansfield West LLC, COO

Cindy was highly recommended by a friend and now we know why. The property became complicated and difficult to sell as the city in which it is located would not allow us to divide two large lots with three single family houses. Due to having to wait for decisions from the city the sale was delayed approximately nine months. During that time Cindy would check the properties several times a week, (I live 400 miles away and could not check the properties personally), she helped us hire gardeners and repair/maintenance people, painters and others needed for upkeep and repair. She updated us by email or phone several times a week or even daily if necessary. Cindy is friendly, knowledgeable and extremely professional. I highly recommend her!

Sagun Tumkar recommends Elena Garcia

I got the flyer from Elena in my mail and contacted her. Since then it was all positive experience. When I decided to sell, I spoke with multiple agents including Redfin and Elena was by far the best one. This was the first time I was selling so wanted someone who would explain me each and every detail of the process, understand my goals and align with me on those. Be transparent, responsive and helpful in every aspect. Elena was definitely that person. Her first presentation was so impressive that me and my wife told her we will go with you. I had to do some work in my house (new lawns, painting etc) and she pulled her contacts to get me cheapest price (I got multiple quotes before talking with her contacts). She made sure I am not spending penny extra on things which doesn't really matter. She was always available. I don't remember even single instance when she didn't pickup my phone or didn't respond to my messages on time. She tried really hard to get us the best offer we could possibly get, and we are super happy with the offer. I already informed to my friends about her and would highly recommend her to anyone who is planning to sell. Have one meeting with her and you would know why I am so positive. This is not a fake review, I am happy to talk on phone if anyone wants more details or have any other questions.

Marcello Grande recommends David Azimi

Executive Creative Director

Late in 2020 My wife and I were planning the sale of our home and searching for the right neighborhood to move our family while juggling a toddler at home and two executive jobs. This was right in the middle of COVID and stressful is an understatement.

We were introduced to David and his team through a family member and he has been an amazing agent and has become a friend in the process.

David jumped in, helped us prepare our home for sale, negotiated a killer deal far above our listing and asking price, and introduced us to a lender that prequalified us so we could quickly see houses and explore neighborhoods with confidence. David has gone with us everywhere as we toured 35 houses from Pleasanton to Sacramento, to Orinda in our search for the perfect house, working hard on our behalf with sellers who's homes we were interested in.

We just found our Goldilox house and David negotiated a deal that put us in a very favorable position with the seller so that we would not have to bid against other buyers.

Buying a house is never an easy process, things happen you can't anticipate especially with how red hot the sellers market is right now, but my wife and I are through the moon with what David and his team have done for us.

Thank you David, Yadira and Intero!
