About Patty Lin

Patty Lin

General Manager


Patty was born in Hong Kong and moved with her family to the United States at a very early age.  Originally residing in San Francisco’s Sunset district, her family later moved to Walnut Creek where Patty attended Carondelet High School.  She then studied at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where she earned a degree in Industrial Technology & Engineering.  From there she spent the next 25 years smashing sales quotas and records in the technology industry at IBM, Hewlett Packard and numerous startups.

All the while, real estate remained a passion that simmered beneath the surface.  She became a licensed California real estate agent in 1990 and began acquiring income properties in her free time.  “The tangible nature of real estate always attracted me.  It was something you could touch and fix up and actively improve with your effort”, recounts Patty.  “Other investments like stocks just don’t have that unique quality.”

As the General Manager at Via, Patty routinely calls upon her many years of experience in marketing, sales and negotiation, as well as her first hand experience as an income property owner having personally owned and managed her rental homes.  She currently lives in Danville, California with her spouse.
