My husband and I have experienced a couple of rent increases and have decided it's time to purchase a home of our own. I read Heather's reviews on Yelp and contacted her over the phone for an initial consultation. We looked at a number of condos in Foster City and San Mateo and have decided to purchase a single family home. Heather was extremely patient and articulate in guiding us through the process of finding our options within the budget. She explains the pros and cons of condos vs single family homes as well as analyzing the expenses as a result of home ownership. She is prompt in responding to all my questions and her knowledge about the real estate market in San Mateo County has prepared us to successfully win the bid in this very competitive market. Heather is skilled in facilitating the contingency removal with our lender and the listing agent. She is so easy and available to talk to so I can definitely count on her shall I have any questions about real estate in the future. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone who is looking to buy and sell their home."

Thank you Xuchen! It's been such a great pleasure working with you and your husband.
Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.15M in Laurelwood, San Mateo, CA.
I was looking for a reliable and successful Real Estate agent in the San Mateo area to help sell a friends house. I found Heathers name on the Re/Max website and read her reviews on Zillow and Yelp as well, which were FIVE Star. We had several conversations about the property and each time Heather provided fast and immediate responses which was important to me.
Heather did the analysis for home sale values and did a tremendous job prepping the house for sale which included some minor renovations along with staging for pictures and the open house. We saw a substantial increase in the sales price which was a direct result of Heathers guidance with the prepping and staging.
I would highly recommend Heather to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home as I felt her communication, support and attention to detail was superior.
Bought a Multi Family home in 2014 in Daly City, CA.
Heather is friendly and professional! I moved from another State to CA and she's been very helpful to me during the transition of my relocation. Always gets things done efficiently and truly cares about her clients :)
Bought a home in 2014 in Belle Monte, Belmont, CA 94002.
After researching and many recommendations for realtors in my area, we are so happy that we decided to go with Heather. I knew she was the right person for the job after speaking with her over the phone. She was friendly, enthusiastic and took the time to answer all of my questions.
Heather lived up to her five star ratings and has gone above and beyond for my husband and I throughout the home buying process.
We were able to purchase a home in the very competitive housing market of
Belmont with the help of Heather. She was there for us every step of the way! She expertly guided us through the financing and bidding process for several homes and after several months of searching and a few declined offers, finally our offer was accepted for a great house in a fantastic location for a price that we were comfortable with and we couldn't have done it without Heather.
She is absolutely phenomenal!!! She was always there when we needed her and responds quickly to emails and texts. She is very knowledgeable of the housing market in the area, a consummate professional, respectful, gifted mediator between my husband and I, has a great sense of humor and is a strong advocate for her clients.
I am so grateful to Heather for being there for me throughout my ever changing moods! She remained patient and always kept a cool, calm and positive attitude.
I really enjoyed working with Heather and miss the time we spent looking at homes and talking on the phone. I hope to do it all again with her in 7 years!
In the meantime, we will definitely recommend her to all of our friends knowing that they will be in good hands with her!

Heather helped us to purchase our house in Palo Alto (366 George hood Lane)with in short time. We started to look for the house in Palo alto in a year, but because of lack of the experience of negociating, and me and my husband are always disagree in the style or location where we really want to get, almost want to give up. We were in the limited time since are working outside of bayarea and planing to move back in a good school districed in the future, and Heather get the case and trying very hard in every single step from marketing analysis to select the house in our buget, then bargain from the owner, and after owner agreed the price she was still trying hard to get some repaire money about $2500, and maintainence insurance for a year about $650 from owner.
While we are still outside of bay area now, she also helped us to maintain the house and rent the house until now. Anything we need just give her a call or email, she will try her best to help.We are very happy with her service.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Santa Clara, CA.
Heather is extremely friendly, helpful and supportive throughout the process. She took the time to introduce me to all the choices that are available and was very honest with her suggestion and advice. She took my vision of the house I wanted and worked that in the search ahead of time, saving me time and energy wrt the decision. She also helped me figure out my loan options and some other glitches throughout the process. I highly recommend Heather as a trusted agent and friend and look forward to working with her in years to come.
Helped me rent a Multi Family home in Hunters Point, San Francisco, CA.
My first interaction with Ms. Heather Lin was renting a house through her, in which it was a grateful experience. Finally, I started thinking of buying a house and there where I knew that Ms. Lin works originally as a real state agent. we are currently looking for a house to buy and Ms. Lin is doing it perfect; from being very communicative by linking us with lending institutions, to giving us advices of which works best for us. My experience with Ms. Lin was nothing but friendly, and professional.
