Realtor® Intero Real Estate Cupertino CalBRE 0189217
Prior to becoming a realtor, Vivian Lin worked in the financial and semiconductor industries for 15+ years, 10 of those years in Silicon Valley. She has a deep knowledge and awareness of the South Bay real estate market and its quirks. She is uniquely and constantly focused on that market for her clients, advising both buyers and sellers. Born in Taiwan and raised in Texas, Vivian loves working with diverse clients and speaks fluent English and Mandarin. Her primary professional goal is to ensure people have a surprisingly great experience buying or selling their home.

In a great realtor, one seeks a variety of skills: an analytical mind, interpersonal awareness, knowledge of the target community, and pure technical expertise. Vivian has this combination. She has a long history with the homes, neighborhoods, and communities of San Jose and its surrounding areas. She has a solid, quick intuition for the analytics of this area's home pricing, real estate nuance, and negotiation.

Vivian also works to make the process rewarding, satisfying, and fun. Buying and selling a home can stress the most calm personality, but she provides the stability, technical support, local experience, and dedicated hard work, allowing clients to focus on their financial, personal, and emotional goals.

With such combined technical and interpersonal skills, Vivian really strives to smooth the buying and selling process. She can create a rewarding and exciting outcome matching your family's needs and your preferred pace, making extraordinary, important life decisions possible.

Vivian did an excellent job finding a home for my parents. Last year she help find a rental and this year she found them a great home. She made herself available to take my parents to see many homes and she worked very hard with the sellers agent, the lender and the escrow office to make everything possible. My mother told me often that she really liked speaking with Vivian through the buying process. She has a great personality, making everyone feel comfortable. I highly recommend her!

My wife and I would like to give the excellent rating for Vivian’s service in helping us search and finally buy a house that we love in Sunnyvale.

Before meeting Vivian, I had talked to a few other real estate agents already. From our past experience, we did not like the type of agent who would brag about his/her own sales record, or push clients only to close just another transaction, without paying much attention to each buyer’s unique need and the decision-making dynamics during the searching process. Vivian is definitely not such a type.

Of course, Vivian, like any other agent, wouldn’t get to understand us instantly in the first few meetings. Furthermore, even between my wife and I, we often disagreed on the property or the location we planned to purchase. What made Vivian stand out is that she was always willing to listen patiently to our thoughts and adjust her work accordingly to meet our changing preferences/priorities, while my wife and I were trying to settle on what we really wanted in today’s super-competitive market in Bay Area.

Her such quality earned our trust, which I feel is one of the most important factors when we as buyers can rely on the agent to make our final purchase decision.

We want to express our deepest thanks to Vivian, for all the long discussions about the properties that we were exploring, the many open-houses you took us to visit, and the several offers we wrote that lost to other higher bidders (marginally).

All the best to Vivian!

My fiancée and I loved working with Vivian Lin as our realtor. We found our home within a month of beginning our search. I think it was largely due to Vivian, who was always respectful of our time and therefore never showed us a house outside of our budget or our “wish list.” She was easy to reach and kept us informed every step of the way, which was great as first-time homebuyers. We never felt rushed or pressured by Vivian during the process. She worked hard for us and helped us with multiple counters to the seller to get us the best price while still getting our home. I can’t say enough good things about Vivian, and would happily work with her in the future when we embark on this endeavor again.

Rencent Townhouse Buyer
Vivian went above and beyond to help us with every aspect of house buying. For first time buys like me and my girlfriend, we almost didn't expect everything would go so smoothly. Vivian is knowledgeable, knows about the market, and always keeps us in the loop during the entire transaction. When our offer was countered buy the seller, Vivian helped us to make sure our counter-offer stays in an advantaged position, while carries weight. When we finally closed the deal, our buying price is $30,000 less in comparison with a town home sold next door with almost identical features. I would highly recommend Vivian to anyone who's looking for homes in the bay area.

I have known Vivian Lin for more than a decade professionally in technology here in Silicon Valley. Her attention to detail and focus on the customer is incredible, and is what sets her apart from other realtors. Vivian will develop a winning holistic real estate strategy that will consistently seal the deal, as her track record has demonstrated. I highly recommend her for your next property purchase!

Happy Client
Vivian is the BEST! I cannot say enough good things about her. My fiancé and I have been looking to buy a home on and off for about a year. We went through a few different agents (not at the same time). Some of them were proactive while others are more passive, but truly, none worked as hard as Vivian.

Based on homes that we like, Vivian would go to open homes to preview homes for us. She'd send us pictures and talk to the realtors to try to get a feel of what the buyer is looking for (price point, rent-back, financing, etc.). She would keep calling the listing agents to make sure all of our questions are answered, and to let them know how serious we are as buyers. She is always available to answer my questions, no matter what time it is. If there is any question she is not familiar with, she has a whole team of experienced realtors at Intero that she can tap into.

We must have looked at over a hundred homes; offered and got rejected by 20+ sellers before we went to Vivian. Vivian helped us win the bid on our 3rd try with her!! I absolutely love her and I'd recommend anyone to use her service. I am telling all of my friends and family about her!

If you need an agent, call Vivian. You couldn't be in better hands.
