About Gibson Sothebys International Realty


Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty was founded in Boston's South End by Betty Gibson in 1962 and has become Boston's luxury real estate company. Our size has grown, but our approach has remained uniquely personal. We take pride in our neighborhoods. Our agents live and work in the city, which means you have first hand experience at your fingertips.


Since the founding of the Sotheby's auction house in 1744, the Sotheby's name has earned renown as a marketer of the world's most valuable and prestigious possessions. That reputation followed Sotheby's into the real estate market in 1976. As a prominent Sotheby's associate once said, "We had experienced such success in selling the art on the walls, we decided to sell the walls themselves." Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty continues to cultivate a remarkable connection to our neighborhoods by supporting local organizations and by living where we work. If your search is not bound to our neighborhoods, we also offer the power of the Sotheby’s International Realty® tools and brand.We proudly exceeded last years sales by 43% in part, due to our incredible acquisitions over the past year. The secret to our success is that our agents are knowledgeable professionals who are supported by one of the most highly respected companies in the world.


Boston real estate is an exciting and historic market, filled with opportunity for buyers and sellers, alike. Our agents bring a wealth of life experiences to real estate. We’ve been teachers, marketers, art historians, musicians, actors, world travelers - and chefs. 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.


With over $450,000,000 in transactions for 2007, we are the leader in Boston real estate and the company with only 160 brokers, is ranked sixth in the state in sales growth. The gibson Sotheby's environment generates creativity and innovation. We see ourselves as leaders, and we're recognized as such.
