The offices of Alain Pinel Realtors at 2930 Woodside Road in Woodside are larger by about 1,100 square feet since December when the real estate company occupied the office next door at 2934 Woodside Road, formerly the home of Miller Design.
Interior designer Robert W. Miller died in November 2014, Alain Pinel vice president Bill Lewis told the Almanac. When the owner of the property informed Pinel of the office's availability, "we jumped on it," Mr. Lewis said. With office space usually scarce in Woodside, it was more the opportunity than a need for space, he said.
Alain Pinel Realtors opened its first location in Woodside in 1997, said Barry Baltor, a vice president and the company's business operations manager. Seventeen realtors operated out of Woodside before extending the office in December, and now that number is 25, he said.
Parking space tends to be scarce in Woodside, but this office has enough, he said. "Actually, we're very lucky. It's quite convenient," he said.
