Mark Stornetta Named Sales Manager for the Wine Country

StornettaSONOMA, CA – Alain Pinel Realtors (APR), the fifth largest residential real estate firm in the United States, has named Mark Stornetta as the Sales Manager for the Wine Country overseeing the brokerage’s Sonoma office. The Sonoma office will continue to be managed under Rick Turley, APR Vice President and Managing Broker of San Francisco and the Wine Country.
Born and raised in the North Bay with over 30 years in the wine industry, finance, and real estate, Stornetta has represented some of the finest vineyards, ranches, and residential properties. Having built his business on referrals, he prides himself on his honest, ethical, and detail-oriented approach to real estate.
“Mark has extensive knowledge and knows the Sonoma and Napa markets better than anyone,” said Turley. “With his professional approach and vast experience combined with the trusted brand and historical track record of Alain Pinel Realtors, I am confident we will grow our footprint with incredible sales associates throughout the Wine Country.”
The move reflects an ongoing commitment from APR to grow its presence in the area. APR made a splash last year when it hired Turley, former President of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s San Francisco Bay Area Regions, to oversee growth in the area. The firm also hired Tim Freeman, a former manager of Coldwell Banker’s largest Wine Country office, to oversee the training of new agents.
“I look forward to working with Rick and the rest of the leadership team at Alain Pinel Realtors in furthering our reach in the region. Having lived and worked in the Wine Country, I’m thrilled to be part of a team that believes in its promise.”
Stornetta earned his B.S. degree in agricultural business from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, then spent nine years as a Farm Credit loan officer and branch manager in Sonoma Valley before joining Glen Ellen Winery as a general partner and CFO. For the past decade, Stornetta has been pleased to be involved with complex purchases and sales of Wine Country real estate.
