One of the first steps to selling your home is searching for that stellar Realtor who will work in your best interest to sell your beloved abode quickly and at top dollar. You may not know what makes a great Realtor; however, if you do your research, you will find that marketing is crucial!

A real estate agent that knows today’s modern market and how to promote the sale of your home is essential. The crazy fun world of social media, websites, and apps are more than just a pastime. These innovative features create an opportunity for far-reaching advertising and promotion.

My passion is to sell your home, and I am a firm believer in using the Internet as a useful tool to do so. In fact, my clients get buyers making offers, just because those buyers seeing the ads that I run on Facebook/Instagram. As a Realtor in the Bay Area, I want to reach as many people as I can to present your home and attract buyers right to your front steps.

The Methodology Behind My Internet Marketing

The broad scope of my marketing plan with every home I list for sellers just like you: feature your property like it is my own. Showcase it in as many areas online that I can. I may not have big secrets to my strategy, but I use the tools in front of me to every advantage.

The Proof is in the Numbers

It may seem obvious to some, but many do not realize how significant internet marketing is when it comes to selling a home. The new generations rely on the Internet for much of what they do. They work, they play, they buy, and they browse on the Internet often for a variety of reasons.

According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the Internet, in 2017, ranked at 49% as the method in which buyers found their new home. (NAR Profile of Homebuyers and Sellers) What could be better than that? The traditional ways such as newspapers and for sale signs only ranked at 1% and 7% respectively. That’s a significant difference.


 Facebook/Instagram is a great platform to promote homes for sale. With many followers and by way of Facebook ads, your home is put in front of more viewers than classic advertising has ever done. I like to create posts about your home, share the photos and description and at the same time engage possible buyer’s that want to see your home. It is easy to get a hold of me on Facebook/Instagram, and all my information is there, so when I post your home, and someone is interested, the process is quick and straightforward to set up a showing.

 When I feature your home on Facebook, I do so professionally and strategically. Choosing the best times to post, using the best photographs and descriptions, you can be assured I take care in all of my Facebook/Instagram promotions.

You’re probably curious how many potential buyer I could reach

Website & Internet Real Estate Sites

Not only do I have a personal website, but my broker has an awesome one as well. Your home will receive attention by way of listing an advertisement on our website. We will use great photography to catch the attention of a multitude of the high traffic that visits the site each day.

Also, when we create your listing, your home will automatically load to real estate sites such as Redfin & Zillow. My agency has a special relationship with Redfin & Zillow, so when someone sees your home and is interested, they will get to me, not just anyone. So, you know with our powerful web advertising, your home is in trusted hands.

For those unique Showcased properties, I can also list them on Realtor.com which has been known to elevate clicks more than other real estate sites. In addition, when a potential buyer wants to inquire about your home, they will receive my contact information so I can help them directly and work to accept an offer for your property. The advantage of Realtor.com’s platform is the ability to showcase more photos and even upload a virtual tour which creates more attraction.


The importance of finding a real estate agent who knows how to market your home to sell it fast and for top dollar is genuinely a significant factor in the selling experience. You can easily find peace of mind with my promotional strategies. Your home will be featured in places that buyers spend time looking in this new age of the Internet, including Facebook/Instagram, and popular real estate sites.

Before I started my career as a real estate agent, I found it quite difficult to find informative articles or websites that provided accurate information catered towards buying and selling houses in the San Francisco Bay Area. Yes, there are some out there on REDFIN or Zillow, but those are not catered specifically towards the San Francisco Bay Area. Sometimes, even tips and facts regarded as common knowledge aren’t applicable and outdated from a Bay Area perspective. My original intention of starting this blog, was to help shed some light on the seemingly inscrutable real estate market. As a real estate agent who has been practicing for several years, I wanted to provide accurate and relevant information to those who might be interested in buying or selling a home.

If you’re curious and want to learn more about buying and selling in the San Francisco Bay Area, then this website might be a good starting point to gain some insight!


My name is Chiuho Lin. I first found my calling for real estate in 2015, while I was looking for a new home in the San Francisco Bay Area. I found myself inexplicably drawn to this profession and after meeting hundreds of real estate professionals, I made the decision to become a real estate agent myself. To me, being a real estate agent is rewarding not only because I love meeting new people, but also because I have the privilege of helping them find their new home. A home is an essential aspect of people’s lives where families make happy memories together. I am so glad that as a real estate agent, I can help make their vision a reality.


If you are interested in buying a house, as an agent I can promise you that I will be present in all stages of the buying process. This includes everything from consultations to address all your concerns, investigating real estate to find a home that suits all your needs, visiting the houses, providing insights on the neighborhood, assessing the current conditions of the homes that may require additional attention, read various reports filled with technical jargon, to helping you understand contracts. I ensure quality care and commitment in the entire process from start to finish.

If you are interested in selling, then the process would start from an initial consultation, to price assessments, market analysis, repair advice, time-to-market recommendations, staging assessment, style selection, housing listings, posters, social media promotion, marketing media selection, follow-up on house delivery. Once again, I will be active and present in the entire process to make sure everything goes smoothly.

 As a professional, I take pride in my work ethic and ensure the utmost care and consideration while working with all my clients. I’d like to consider myself a trusted adviser to ensure a phenomenal experience throughout your buying/selling process. With that being said, if you ever need a professional consultation or assistance with anything – for example, gardening/landscaping, property manager property lawyer, paint master, decorator, roof repair master, loan broker, registration accountant – please feel free to reach out! I am genuinely passionate about what I do and hope that I can help share my knowledge with you all.
