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.

Jeanette Fugate recommends Terrie MacDonald

I chose Terrie to be the realtor for the sale of my father’s home in Sun City Lincoln Hills as he was transitioning to an assisted living arrangement. Terrie was absolutely a God send. I was so preoccupied with my father’s care that Terrie came in with a game plan, strategy, and confidence that allowed me to focus on him. Terrie was absolutely amazing. She went above and beyond any realtor I have ever worked with and the trust, care and compassion she shared regarding our situation was truly remarkable. I HIGHLY recommend Terrie for all real estate transactions and I will definitely use her again when it is time to sell my home.

Anthony Fermin recommends Michelle Lin

Clinical Program Director

Michelle has been a great resource and support during the home finding process. She has been attentive, provides great information and knows how to get the home buyer thinking on what is really important and valuable before purchasing a home. She is knowledgeable about the area and upfront about the status of the current market and provides advice for certain situations to ensure the buyer is well-informed and can make the best decision.
She has also been patient and warm to the whole family as we go through some life-changing decisions which truly matters and made this experience pleasant. I highly recommend Michelle for your home-buying experience.

Janette Rios recommends Michelle Lin


Michelle Lin is the best! She was thorough and professional, and great to work with. She kept me apprised about available appointments and always kept me in the loop as soon as a new house came on the market. She was honest and forthright- no games. After dealing with several other agents in the Bay Area and being disappointed, I’m very lucky to have found Michelle. Thank you!

Natalie Hargrove recommends Jas Bains

My spouse and I were first-time homebuyers that no idea about the process. Jas was recommended to us by a very trusted and much respected source. Jas is a very warm and patient person. She walked us through every step of the process and connected us with a terrific Loan Officer at the bank we selected for our mortgage. All in all, our first experience of buying a home was a lot easier than we thought it would be, thanks to Jas.

What can I say, Third time around and Pia works as a charm. We got our house sold quickly, and the experience was so smooth. Pia always goes extra Miles to make sure everything is working properly throughout the entire process. Even after buyer removed all the contingencies and bought our house as is.

We appreciate your kindness, hard work, and professionalism, Pia and Team. Highly recommend Pia and her team if you need to sell or buy houses. Pia has helped us buy two houses and sold one.

Rob Reibenschuh recommends Dao Trieu

Dao was a fantatic realtor to work with in selling our home in Union City. She knew the local market extremely well, and knew what needed to be done to our home to achieve the best price possible. Selling our home during mid-move out of state complicated matters, but Dao took the bull by the horns, so to speak, and diligently carried on her volunteer tasks of cleaning, planting flowers, and liaising with our general contrator and us. She constantly went that extra mile for us. We can't thank Dao enough for our home sale, and highly recommend her for any potential seller or potential new home buyer.

Hendry Ng recommends Margaret Lin

After working with Margaret to purchase my house in 2017 and 2021, I was convinced that she’s the realtor I need. I’ve recently sold one in 2021 and with each process, Margaret’s terrific instincts, efficient, and professionalism have consistently guided us through satisfactory outcomes. It is truly a pleasure to work with Margaret — I’ve found that she keeps her client’s best interests in sharp focus and I can always trust that she is on top of every detail, big and small, which brings great peace of mind in any real estate transaction.

Dell Reibenschuh recommends Dao Trieu

Working with Dao was great. She was super diligent, explained anything and everything, knew the market and helped us in so many ways. Our house was a bit of a challenge and we moved out of state mid-process which didn't help. It was Dao's expertise and drive that got us the best possible outcome which exceeded our expectations. With everything she does, she shows she cares about her clients. I highly recommend Dao.
