    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    We can only set Position Property for map pin .

    In your scenario you can get location according to address using Xamarin.Essentials: Geocoding , and then set for pin .

       var address =  "Microsoft Building 25 Redmond WA USA";  
       var locations = await Geocoding.GetLocationsAsync(address);  
       var location = locations?.FirstOrDefault();
