Why Alain Pinel Realtors?

Alain Pinel Realtors is the leader in the mid-to-upper end property markets here in Marin County. Family-owned and with 23 offices in the greater san Francisco Bay Area, the company has invested heavily in property marketing systems that are superior to the competition in a number of key areas. Most important to me as a Marin Realtor, I want access to the highest quality marketing materials available to expose your property.


Alain Pinel has come to mean quality. For example, we are among the few firms in Marin with professional photographers on staff who will set-up and shoot your home and location in its best possible light and deliver photos for websites and print ad production within 36 hours of the shoot. This means, I can quickly deploy superior-quality online brochures to over 260 of Marin’s top real estate agents during the “pre-marketing” phase (prior to buyer showings).


Review our property marketing flyers, direct mail pieces and web-presence and judge for yourself. I think you will agree that they stand-out as exceptional. Research by the National Association of REALTORs shows that over 80% of American home shoppers go online prior to visiting available homes. It is critical to grab the serious buyers' attention and draw them to our listings. We strive to spur buyers into action through compelling, coordinated marketing strategies. We employ all the proven tools: the web, email networking, as well as magazines, newspapers, and direct mail, to this end. Remember, the highest selling price will generally result from a rapid, full-exposure to all the serious, pre-approved buyers.


Have you ever skipped over an online property listing because no pictures were shown? You are not alone.

We deliver our listings (with photos included) to the 22 key websites for broad local, regional and national exposure; including,, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times real estate sites. In addition, we deliver listing data with photos to 74 heavily-promoted U.S. television news websites (Ask Tom Dreyer for details and links to these sites). No other firm in the bay area can match our broad web-exposure. Moreover, Alain Pinel Realtors has marketing staff to "enhance" our listings with extra photos on, custom personalized websites (ie: and many others sites. This is critical to online buyers who tend to survey the multi-photo listings first and are 300% more likely to view your listing. In addition, we provide our home-sellers with "web-traffic reports" that verify how many people are viewing your property.


Alain Pinel Realtors is selective about the people they hire; (friendly knowledgeable staff and successful REALTORs with reputations for integrity). The average Alain Pinel Realtor sells 40% more in dollar volume than the average agent from other local firms. That said, we cooperate fully with the other local firms' agents and their clients in order to reach our respective client’s goals. Our listings are available to be shown to other local brokers' clients. All these facts have enabled Alain Pinel to become the market leader in home sales priced over $1,000,000 in Central-Southern Marin County.

To recap, Alain Pinel Realtors provides to local home sellers:

1. Professional photography for all property listings.

2. Enhanced listings on (which means 6 photos, not just one; customized text; ability to add virtual tours; “Showcase Listing” status)

3. Extraordinarily broad and rapid internet exposure for your property to over 95 key local, regional and national websites, including: (for properties over $2,000,000), and (The San Francisco Chronicle) .

4. Professionally produced full-color flyers and direct-mail marketing pieces.

5. Marketing & Advertising support beyond that found in any other brokerage in the area.

6. Unique and highly-effective web tools to "drive" buyers to our listings, including: >
