Wine Country Veteran to Lead Alain Pinel Realtors Sonoma Office

March 16, 2015

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.

SARATOGA, California (August 13, 2014) — Alain Pinel Realtors (APR), the fifth largest residential real estate firm in the United States, announced the promotion of Rick Turley to Vice President & Managing Broker of the San Francisco and Sonoma offices, effective August 12. The firm also named Tim Freeman, formerly Manager of Coldwell Banker’s largest residential real estate office in Sonoma, as North Bay Director of Career Development.
Turley replaces Tim Murray, who will continue with the firm, transitioning into a role as a Realtor focusing on high-end properties and international investors in both the San Francisco and Wine Country markets. Murray, who has been with APR for seven years, opened the firm’s San Francisco office locations and oversaw over 100 sales associates. He helped develop the firm’s commercial presence by overseeing the APR Investment Group, who are now the #1 sellers of apartment buildings in the city.
“With the real estate market booming in San Francisco and more Silicon Valley entrepreneurs investing in high-end homes in the Wine Country, this is an opportune time to broaden our presence in these regions,” said Paul Hulme, APR President, Founder and CEO. “Rick’s strong leadership and Tim’s deep knowledge of the real estate market and coaching skills bring the best of both worlds to our clients –comprehensive real estate services and the most knowledgeable agents in the business.”
Turley previously served as APR’s VP of Strategic Planning and Growth for San Francisco and Wine Country. In his new role, he will be responsible for day-to-day operations and growing APR’s presence in The City and North Bay. Turley brings 28 years of real estate experience, including 14 years as a high performing sales agent, and the remaining 14 in managerial roles including manager of a high volume San Frnacisco office and as President of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s San Francisco Bay Area Regions.
Freeman will be responsible for training new and current agents, as well as providing mentoring, marketing and on-going coaching assistance. Prior to joining APR, Freeman managed Coldwell Banker’s largest office by dollar volume in Sonoma County and Wine Country. Before working in real estate, he was Principal of Neveric, LLC, an investment banking company and Assistant Corporate Controller at Informix Corporation. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from California State University, Hayward; and is a California certified public accountant.

Alain Pinel Realtors Hires Tim Freeman as North Bay Director of Career Development

Seasoned Real Estate Professional Will Oversee Training and Coaching in Eight Offices

Tim Freeman
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.
