Alain Pinel Realtors has opened its new and expanded Pleasanton offices at 900 Main St., a two-story, 16,000-square-foot building built in 1999 and designed by renowned architect Peter Shutts.
Originally built to house Mt. Diablo National Bank as the main tenant, and later Wells Fargo Bank, along with Alain Pinel, both banks moved out and the real estate firm has now renovated and is occupying both floors.
Paul L. Hulme, founder, president and chief executive officer of Alain Pinel Realtors, told a crowd of city, civic and real estate representatives at a ribbon-cutting ceremony that Alain Pinel is now the fifth largest residential real estate firm in the U.S. It is also the largest privately-owned company of its kind in California based on its closed sales volume.
Joining with Hulme at the ceremony was Don Faught, vice president and managing broker of Alain Pinel/Pleasanton, State Assemblywoman Catharine Baker (R-San Ramon) and Pleasanton Councilwoman Kathy Narum.
