Gibson Sothebys International Realty, Bostons premier luxury real estate firm, displayed tremendous growth and achievement in 2015. In addition to adding a number of high caliber agents and opening a brand new office, the firm exceeded the incredible billion dollar sales volume closed mark for the third year in a row (source MLS).
This achievement is an amazing feat for a company our size having to operate in a marketplace that was very light on inventory, stated Larry Rideout, Gibson Sothebys International Realtys CEO/Owner. He noted as they move forward in this ever changing world, their continuous success is attributed to three key factors - Momentum. Growth. Foundation.
MOMENTUM The quality of agents that have chosen to join Gibson Sothebys International Realty over the past year continue to make an impact in Boston, Cambridge and the surrounding areas. We continuously strive to take our service to the next level. I can say with confidence that the agents we have added over the last twelve months will represent the integrity of our brand in every facet, noted Paul McGann, Gibson Sothebys International Realtys Owner/President.
Momentum in 2015 for Gibson Sothebys International Realty began with the addition of one of Bostons top producing agents Michael Carucci. Carucci consistently ranks in the top one percent in real estate sales volume for the Greater Boston Area. The culture and best in class management is what really stood out with Gibson Sothebys International Realty. Ownership cares and it shows, said Michael Carucci. It didn't take long to see how the Sotheby's brand enhanced our existing established local brand. This combination brought new business we would not have otherwise received.
GROWTH The opening of a brand new office conveniently located on Massachusetts Avenue expanded the firms exposure in Cambridge. As a result, Gibson Sothebys International Realty recruited some of the areas finest talent.
It didnt take long for me to make the decision to move our team over to help establish the Sothebys brand presence on this side of the Charles River, noted Lauren Holleran. The Sothebys brand and Cambridge are an incredibly natural fit for each other. In the few months since we joined, weve already exchanged business with other Sothebys International Realty offices in Dallas, San Francisco, New Delhi, and Maine - it is amazing to be part of a network recognized for the quality of the brand and the agents associated with that.
Furthermore in Bostons Waterfront, Gibson Sothebys International Realty moved into a new space at the former site of Elite Boston Landmark Realty where they acquired Toni Gilardi and her team. Toni consistently ranks as one of the top agents in the historic North End/Waterfront where she has been a community fixture for decades, thus strengthening their presence in Bostons Waterfront.
Thrilled to be a part of the Gibson Sothebys International Realty family, Toni Gilardi commented. I decided that merging with a larger firm was the right course of action after owning my own business for 31 years. I knew the Sothebys brand was a perfect fit and now am able to offer my clients services that I could not in the past.
In response to rapid growth, Gibson Sothebys International Realty is in the process of doubling the size of their Back Bay office located at the corner of Newbury and Dartmouth Streets.
FOUNDATION Gibson Sothebys International Realty is known for its culture which has consistently been that of a family. All members of the Leadership team have been extremely supportive of their staff being sure to stay one step ahead of the competition, said Cathy Marotta, a veteran that has been with the company for over 30 years. It is truly a pleasure to work for such a well-established brand. When meeting with a potential buyer or seller I do not have to say much; the brand sells itself.
Gibson Sothebys International Realty has grown significantly since joining the Sothebys International Realty brand. With the integration of new technology the firm will continue to see this tremendous growth throughout 2016.
