Tim is a proud local of the Silicon Valley, born and raised in Mountain View and Los Altos. He prides himself in bringing a local expertise to the DeLeon Team.
His early roots in real estate stem from his Chinese-Vietnamese parents, who first arrived in California as refugees – empty-handed, but enlivened by the American dream. Growing up, Tim managed family properties, quickly developing an understanding that a home purchase is one of life’s cascading decisions – that truly impacts a family for years to come. It is with this deep respect, that Tim cares for his clients, as they navigate the challenging Silicon Valley market together.
Prior to joining the DeLeon Realty, Tim graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with Honors in two years’ time. Tim then worked as the youngest employee at an esteemed EdTech startup valued north of $1 billion. After a rigorous business rotation, Tim made the transition to real estate by first joining Equity Residential – one of the largest commercial asset holders and investors in the United States. Today, he continues to love every day working amongst the elite DeLeon Realty in the cities he loves the most.
Tim is proud to be reared by Silicon Valley’s elite public school districts, having attended Loyola Elementary, Blach Middle School, Mountain View High School and subsequently graduated with Honors from the University of California, Berkeley at 20 years old. As a lifelong learner, Tim can be found avidly studying German, Spanish, or Mandarin Chinese in his free time. He is excited to see his hometowns continue to grow into true global destinations.
