3 Oceans Real Estate, A Boutique Real Estate Brokerage Serving the San Francisco Bay Area header image 2

Bye Bye, Alain Pinel; Hello 3 Oceans Real Estate, Inc.

Kevin Boer, Broker Owner, 3 Oceans Real Estate, Inc. ()

October 4th, 2007 · 20 Comments

It’s been a busy few weeks here at 3 Oceans.  Some eagle-eyed viewers may have noticed that my byline recently changed from Kevin Boer, Realtor, Alain Pinel Realtors to Kevin Boer, Broker/Owner, 3 Oceans Real Estate, Inc.

I’m pleased to announce that 3 Oceans is now more than a blog — it is, in fact, now a full-fledged boutique real estate brokerage.  I recently got the final paperwork from Sacramento, and today I officially handed in my keys to my old broker, Alain Pinel.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my 3.5 years at Alain Pinel, learned a ton, and made great friends.  The time has come, however, for me to move on and further leverage the exposure this blog has given me.  I have many innovative business ideas I’ll be implementing, many of which would have been difficult to do while at a traditional brokerage.

If you still have my email address, please be sure to change it to

I think this means I now need to double-check and counter-sign my own paperwork?
