Alain Pinel Realtors was founded in 1990 by CEO and President Paul L. Hulme in Saratoga, California. Along with his two partners, he launched not only a business, but a real estate revolution. They believed that the principles shaping success in other industries — innovation, global networking, technology-driven productivity and attention to the marketplace — could be applied to real estate.
The founders invested heavily in their brand, making it a recognizable name throughout Almaden. They also invested in the most cutting-edge technology available at the time. Even before most tech companies had built public websites, apr.com was available on the web.
They set out to recruit the most forward-thinking agents and created classes and training tools to keep them sharp and on top of an ever-changing market. They also adopted a code of best practices to maintain a superior and consistent level of quality, which is widely used throughout the industry today.
Over time, the company has adhered to the principles of the founders. We built a reputation for integrity, style and stability through change. We continue to embrace the idea that improvement comes by taking risks and challenging assumptions.
Through our most recent technological advancements, our agents can gain immediate access to important data, deliver high-quality client presentations, save time and sharpen their competitive advantage.
Our distinctive brand communicates quality and is widely recognized throughout the region, thanks to our award-winning marketing and advertising experts. Our agents and their listings stand out among the rest.
