Seasoned Real Estate Professional Will Oversee Training and Coaching in Eight Offices
Alain Pinel Realtors (APR), the fifth largest real estate firm in the United States, today announced the hiring of Tim Freeman, former Manager of Coldwell Banker’s largest office in Sonoma County, as North Bay Director of Career Development. In his new role, Freeman will be responsible for training new and current agents, including mentoring and on-going coaching assistance for agents at APR’s eight San Francisco and North Bay offices.
Freeman brings over a decade of real estate experience both as a sales professional and office manager to APR. After beginning his real estate career as a successful sales agent in Chicago, he was quickly promoted to an assistant managing broker where he coached and mentored the office’s 250 associates. He went on to become managing broker of Coldwell Banker’s Gold Coast office, a “luxury boutique” office with the highest average sales price in the city. He led the office until returning to the Bay Area and his most recent role as manager of the Santa Rosa office overseeing 100 sales professionals.
Prior to working in real estate, Freeman was Principal of Neveric, LLC, an investment banking company and Assistant Corporate Controller at Informix Corporation. He also held a number of positions in the accounting, finance, strategic planning and organization building for a number of firms including Deloitte & Touche, as well as major retail companies including The Gap, Inc. and The Nature Company. A Bay Area native, Freeman holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from California State University, Hayward; and is a retired California certified public accountant.
“We are very proud of and committed to our superior and comprehensive training programs for our agents and Tim is a great addition to our team,” says Executive Vice President Rainy Hake. “His wide-ranging background spanning real estate, finance, technology, and coaching make him a uniquely valuable asset in enhancing our agents’ skills and capabilities to better serve our growing client base in the North Bay.” This marks APR’s continued commitment and increased presence in the region, following last month’s hiring of Rick Turley, former President of Coldwell Banker Northern California, as VP of Strategic Planning and Growth for San Francisco and the Wine Country.
