Former Gallagher & Lindsey Agents Flock to Alain Pinel Realtors

After One Year, APR’s Alameda Office Now 2nd Largest in Alameda

Former Gallagher and Lindsey Agents at APR New Agent Orientation

ALAMEDA, CA – The Alain Pinel Realtors (APR) office in Alameda has doubled in size to 28 real estate professionals after former Gallagher & Lindsey (G&L) broker and agents joined APR at the end of last month. After less than a year in operation, the APR office has grown to the second largest real estate office in Alameda in number of agents, and the brokerage has the second largest closed sales volume and closed transaction sides year-to-date.*

“Alain Pinel Realtors’ focus on high quality professionals, excellent customer service, and creating luxury experiences has proved to be a successful recipe for rapid growth, having become the 5th largest residential real estate firm in the nation with just a quarter century in the business,” said Phil Weingrow, Vice President and Manager of APR’s Montclair and Alameda offices. “We have applied the same principles in Alameda, and I’m thrilled to have expanded with the addition of so many quality agents from Gallagher and Lindsey.”

At the end of last month, G&L Broker/Owner Michael Studebaker decided to return to real estate sales and close G&L’s real estate sales arm after almost 50 years of operation. After considering several brokerages, he chose to join APR, bringing many of his agents with him.

“Our new Alameda team blends the iconic history of Gallagher and Lindsey, familiar to all of Alameda since they’ve opened in 1967, with a family-owned, nationally ranked, globally connected industry leader,” said Sally Han, Sales Manager of APR’s Alameda office. “We look forward to taking advantage of cutting-edge technologies to bring our agents and clients in Alameda the best possible real estate experience.”

Notable recruits in addition to Studebaker include former Alameda Association of Realtors® (AAOR) Presidents Ann Bracci, Angela McIntyre, and Troy Staten. With Han, the APR Alameda office now has four former AAOR Presidents in their office.

APR made a splash in the Alameda real estate market last October when they opened in the Alameda South Shore Center with an elaborate grand opening featuring a ribbon cutting by former Mayor Marie Gilmore and a generous donation to the Alameda Point Collaborative, the largest supportive housing provider for homeless families in Alameda County.
