About Me,
April Yin

Realtor/Office Manager
Notary Public

I have been in the financial field since 1983. I have worked as a controller and vice president of finance for several technology firms in Silicon Valley for over 18 years. My financial background and experience means that I bring a unique perspective to the real estate industry.
I offer real estate services for selling and buying properties – whether it is a residential or a commercial property in Santa Clara, San Mateo, Contra Costa and Alameda Counties. My offerings include houses or apartments for sale, from luxury to affordable homes.

As a real estate agent I assist my clients in all aspects of the real estate business. I provide you with all the services you may need whether you are buying a house or apartment, selling a house or a condominium, or even leasing an office building.

I am customer-oriented rather than transaction-oriented. I believe that my clients receive greater benefit as I manage their overall needs as opposed to just making a one-time transaction happen for them. When there are questions or issues for which I don't have a direct answer, I will direct you to the best experts in the field as I continue to assist you in the process.

    I know:

  • Real estate values and taxes
  • The importance of the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)
  • Details on financing methods
  • How to simplify and service all phases of the transaction

So it is time to start acting! Buyers - click here, Sellers - click here. To return to the previous page - click here.

What's a SRES?

Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) Baby boomers are quickly growing into the largest population of seniors we've seen in US history. They're retiring later than ever, and many are buying secondary homes in record numbers. REALTORS® receive the Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) designation after successfully completing a 12-hour training course entitled A Licensee's Guide to Working with Seniors (beside 12 hours training you also have to show prove of production of min 3 transaction with Sr. people). It is designed for REALTOR who could help and work more effectively with senior buyers and sellers.

According to the data in the 2005 National Association of REALTORS® Profile, fewer than 3 percent of all REALTORS® have earned and hold the CRB, CRS, GRI, and SRES Designation.
