Alain Pinel reinvents himself, again

About Us: People in Real Estate

Dust doesn’t settle on the resume of Alain Pinel. It doesn’t get the chance.

Now a Massachusetts real estate executive, his long and varied tri-coastal career began in journalism and has hop-scotched across two continents. He has retired and un-retired — a couple of times. Change, he says, is a tonic.

"To be honest with you, I’m kind of a funny animal because I like to move," said Pinel, now an executive with William Raveis Real Estate in Massachusetts. "If there’s one thing I cannot accept, it is getting bored at doing anything."
