Ranked #3 in the State of MA, with closed sales in excess of $1.5 billion in 2016, GSIR continues to outperform competitors

Ten Years and Counting

Gibson Sotheby's International Realty was the only top ten firm in the state of Massachusetts to earn double-digit gains in marketshare in 2016. They yielded 40% growth to close the year with more than $1.5 billion in sales.

  • 32 Bowdoin Street, a 4,364-square-foot Victorian in Cambridge, sold for $4,250,000.
  • Residences at the Four Seasons, #1205/1209 sold for $8,875,000. The combined-unit encompassed 3,300 square feet.

  • 157 Dudley Road in Newton sold for $4,300,000. The 6,792 square foot home was situated on three beautiful acres.

Amidst hard work and dedication, 2016 marked a year of celebration for Gibson Sotheby's International Realty. The firm celebrated their tenth year as part of the Sotheby's brand. "Over the past ten years we have had the pleasure of working with the best sales associates in the industry. It is amazing to see how much our team has grown over this time and we look forward to another ten years of success," commented President/Co-Owner Paul McGann.

After this record breaking year, Gibson Sotheby's International Realty has no intention of slowing down. With the opening of a new and larger office space in Charlestown, as well as a renovated office in the South end, the firm's mindset is solely on growth and bettering the services that they offer to agents and clients.

All while staying in tune with the rapidly changing market, Gibson Sotheby's International Realty has launched a number of new tools including cutting edge technology.The firm now offers 3D and video tours that provide an immersive, first-person, online viewing experience. Additionally, they will be rolling out a paperless transaction management program and a webinar-based business growth seminar for their agents.

With the addition of office space, and a number of high caliber agents, the firm is expecting to not only maintain their success but further it. "We will continue to be innovative, creative, and above all maintain our legacy of teamwork and family. The best is yet to be," closed Rideout.
