In 1962, Betty Gibson, a woman with a pioneering spirit and great vision, founded our company in Boston’s South End. Betty took great pride in championing not only the South End but also the growth of our city as a whole. That spirit continues today. Boston is our home and we take great pride in it. Today we have approximately one hundred agents in seven offices across the city, and are part of the exclusive Sotheby’s International Realty network. We’re Boston’s largest independent real estate company and Boston’s only Sotheby’s International Realty. Whether you are looking at home or abroad, Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty is the finest choice for buying, selling or renting a home.
Our agents bring a wealth of life experiences to real estate. We’ve been teachers, marketers, art historians, musicians, actors, world travelers – and chefs. But this diverse and knowledgeable group has one thing in common, years of experience both living and working in the neighborhood. We have unparalleled knowledge of every street, parcel and building in Boston.
As Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty, we combined the local expertise of Gibson with the outstanding global outreach and marketing of Sotheby’s International Realty. Our international network of more than 500 real estate offices in 39 countries and territories, our Relocation Division, along with the unique exposure within the Sotheby’s auction houses have given us a distinct advantage within the region. While the media continues to report market corrections around the country, the Boston area has remained steady.
