About us


About Gibson Sotheby's International Realty


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 the growth of Boston as a whole. Today we are Boston’s largest independently owned and operated real estate firm made up by eight offices and a team of approximately 170 dedicated sales professionals.


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 Greater Boston area and are guaranteed to provide white glove services that are second to none.


Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty is set apart by an in-house Marketing Department. Led by a Marketing Director, our marketing team consists of a Photographer, Graphic Designer, Online Media Associate, and Copywriter. Each are dedicated in assisting our agents with creating the highest quality materials for each home.


Whether you are looking at home or abroad, Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty is the finest choice for buying, selling or renting a home. With numerous accreditations and languages spoken we invite you to contact any one of our highly skilled agents to show you the Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty difference.
