Derek Lin is new to the Compound team, but he’s certainly no stranger to San Jose. He was born and raised here and specializes in serving the San Jose market.
It’s only natural that Derek takes an analytical approach as a real estate professional. Technically inclined, he has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in industrial engineering and operations research from the University of California, Berkeley.
Having spent time behind a desk as an individual contributor, and then traveling as a technology consultant, Derek found he prefers the latter. “I have been happier collaborating and interacting with stakeholders,” he says. “I get a strong sense of fulfillment being able to provide my services to clients.” Derek’s care for details and professional abilities in data analysis, optimization, and project management serve those clients well.
In his spare time, Derek pursues his passion for sports. He grew up playing hockey and is a football and tennis fan. His other hobbies include being a Yelp Elite food critic, researching financial investments, and immersing himself in escape rooms.
