Experience the difference - personal ties and relationships turn a property into a home. Warm, professional relationships are a hallmark of the APR experience, and my clients often remark on the quality of my carefully chosen network of financial, legal, logistical and other specialists. The high-quality network that I have fostered extends beyond the Bay Area to an international audience of potential home buyers and sellers through the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and the firm's luxury home division known as Luxury Portfolio. My personal network combined with APR market tenure and brand identity gives my clients a distinct advantage when buying or selling a home. My relationships open the door for my clients to be at home anywhere. Where people, homes, opportunity and a bit of imagination intersect, you'll find me at Alain Pinel Realtors.
