Compass, the real estate technology company, announced today that Alain Pinel Realtors, a leading real estate brokerage in California, will be joining the company.
Founded in 1990, Alain Pinel Realtors launched with a single agent. Alain Pinel Realtors now represents nearly 1,300 agents across 33 offices in the Bay Area. Recently, the company acquired boutique brokerage Hill & Co, growing its luxury presence in the San Francisco Bay Area.
“Over the last 30 years, Alain Pinel Realtors have become leaders in the Bay Area, known for their luxury offering and strong culture,” said Robert Reffkin, Compass CEO. “The Hulme family has built a company with the same entrepreneurial, agent-centric values as Compass and I am excited to work together to build the future of the real estate industry.”
“When my family founded Alain Pinel Realtors in 1990, we were committed to transforming real estate and 30 years later, we continue to look for ways to innovate,” said Mike Hulme, President of Alain Pinel Realtors. “By partnering with Compass, we are able to further our vision and offer our agents the opportunity to build the future of real estate.”
Measured by sales volume, Alain Pinel is a top 10 brokerage in the US, according to Real Trends.
Compass launched in the Bay Area in 2016 and has grown to include over 3,000 agents across 97 office locations in the region. Since its launch, Compass has expanded throughout the region and partnered with other leading brokerages including Paragon and Pacific Union to become the largest independent brokerage in the country.
