Continuing to lead the real estate market as the fifth largest brokerage in the U.S. based on sales volume and the largest privately held real estate brokerage in California, Alain Pinel Realtors® (APR) today announces its 2015 transactions topped more than $12 billion for the year, exceeding the company’s 2014 transaction numbers by more than $1 billion.
“Twenty-six years ago we revolutionized the practice of real estate in California. What we achieved in 2015 demonstrates our continued leadership of the market,” said APR President, Founder and CEO Paul L. Hulme. “Alain Pinel Realtors remains the gold standard for professionalism and integrity in real estate by employing outstanding professionals and continuing to innovate with cutting edge technology, creative marketing and best practice tools that have been central to our success since 1990.”
With hundreds of millions of dollars transacted across each of the company’s 33 offices in 2015, four locations differentiated themselves by exceeding $1 billion in transaction volume in their individual markets, including:
- Menlo Park with $1.726 billion
- Los Gatos with $1.28 billion
- Los Altos with $1.275 billion

“Our international reach and affiliations with luxury networks, including Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and Luxury Portfolio®, have distinguished Alain Pinel Realtors among the world’s most discerning buyers, sellers and investors,” noted APR COO Rainy Hake. “It’s that reach and reputation that provides our clients with a distinct advantage when buying or selling a home in key markets within Northern California. We continue to grow our business because our agents are sought by those looking for the finest service and properties in the state of California.”
Adding to APR’s record-breaking transaction volume in 2015 was the company’s investment property arm, APR Investment Group. The group ended the year with more than $290 million in closed transactions through the acquisition and divestiture of its clients’ investment properties that include multi-unit apartments, office buildings, retail centers, industrial properties, hospitality facilities and undeveloped land.
