Why Alain Pinel?

Alain Pinel

We chose Alain Pinel Realtors (APR) because it is a locally-owned Bay Area regional company with national and international reach and brand identity. APR offers a forward-thinking commitment to technology and how it can serve clients. APR is the #1 privately owned real estate company in California and is ranked 5th in the nation in total sales volume, even though its more than thirty offices all surround the San Francisco Bay.

Alain Pinel Realtors provides:

  • Guaranteed listing exposure in periodicals throughout the Bay Area (including San Francisco Chronicle, Hills Newspapers and SFGate.com)
  • An online transaction platform that permits our clients to fully access their transaction files anywhere, anytime
  • A multi-million dollar company-wide advertising budget targeted at driving traffic to APR listings
  • Proprietary technology tools that permit us to analyze markets and properties in ways unavailable to most of our industry
  • Technology tools like mobile search that make searching for homes easy even on the go, as well as Seller’s Corner on SAVI (APR’s dedicated intranet dashboard of tools)
  • An expansive regional network that allows us to instantly inform APR’s 1,300 agents of the availability of our clients’ home
  • An in-house executive relocation service that typically closes over half a billion dollars a year in residential sales. If desired, APR’s intranet database can send your home through that exclusive network even before it is on the market
  • A worldwide network of brokers who have clients/referrals for our area through the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and Luxury Portfolio – this allows us to market your property to qualified, affluent buyers throughout the world
  • A dedicated real estate attorney (formerly with the California Association of Realtors) who provides a database of knowledge on subjects of import to APR’s agents and clients, as well as the ability to advise on any situation that may arise
  • Listings which are syndicated to hundreds of the most popular real estate websites plus the dedicated open.apr.com website which lists all Bay Area open houses
