Frank Howard Allen expands to California's wine country

Brokerage's agent count exceeds 450 in Q1

Frank Howard Allen Realtors has opened six new company-owned offices in Northern California’s wine country, the brokerage announced last Friday.

Frank Howard Allen is based in Novato, Calif., and focuses on the North Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area. The brokerage’s new offices are located in Napa and Sonoma counties, the heart of California’s wine country.

The offices bring the brokerage’s total office count to 23: 16 company-owned and seven independently owned and operated offices.

Three dozen agents, most of them working at the new offices, joined Frank Howard Allen in the first quarter, bringing the brokerage’s agent count to more than 450.

"In a time of nationwide cutbacks and closures, we are fortunate to be in a position where we can grow and expand," said Noreen Smith, the brokerage’s president and chief operating officer, in a statement.
