2023: A Look Back At Our Proudest Moments So Far

As we venture further into the final quarter of 2023, we want to acknowledge our accomplishments to date and the promising opportunities that lie ahead. 

Here are a few achievements we are most proud of so far this year:

  1. Gibson Sotheby's International Realty was awarded Gold in the 16th annual Banker & Tradesman's Best—ranking our firm as the #1 residential real estate company in Massachusetts. 

  2. Our firm was awarded Best Website at Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate’s 26th Annual Fall Conference, where brokers, agents and industry movers from across the globe gathered in Park City, Utah to explore the latest trends in luxury real estate and honor the best in the industry. 

  3. Paul McCormick, a sales associate with Gibson Sotheby's International Realty in Chatham, was honored with a Significant Sale award for his sale of 72 Sea Mist Lane in Chatham, Massachusetts for $5,995,000, marking the highest sale price to date in South Chatham.

  1. Dino Confalone, a sales associate with Gibson Sotheby's International Realty in Cambridge, was named REALTOR® of the Year by the Greater Boston Association of REALTORS® for his contributions to the advancement of the real estate profession and local community during the previous 18 months.

  2. Maggie Tomkiewicz, a sales associate on Team MCM with Gibson Sotheby's International Realty in Dartmouth, was recognized as the REALTOR® Party Advocate of the Year by the REALTOR® Association of Southeastern Massachusetts for her dedication to legislative and advocacy matters.

  3. We opened new office locations in Dartmouth and Newburyport, providing new opportunities for our agents and their clients in prime luxury markets in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Bradley for Charitable Services, The Lara & Chelsea Collaborative for Best Team, Daphna Fields for Industry MVP, for Best Brokerage Website, and Maison Commonwealth for Best New Development. 

  5. While no one could have predicted what was next in 2022, the commitment of Steve McKenna and the Home Advantage Team and the Lauren Holleran Team prevailed, leading to a remarkable achievement: membership among the Top 100 agents and teams in the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand worldwide.

  1. 54 Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty associates were honored in the 2023 RealTrends America's Best Real Estate Professionals report, which recognizes the top 1.5% of 1.6 million real estate professionals nationwide.

  2. In April, we attended the largest Global Networking Event ever—bringing together close to 3,000 attendees from 44 states and nearly 40 countries to fuel referrals, collaborate, and build relationships on an unparalleled scale. 

  3. In October, we welcomed our associates and staff as well as a selection of special guests to the 2023 Experts Exchange, where Sotheby's International Realty associates from near and far came together in Boston to hear from industry leaders and get trusted insights into what’s ahead for the market. It is an honor to be a part of this global network, and we were thrilled to host this inaugural event.


By embracing innovation, fostering connections, and providing exceptional service, we elevate the Gibson Sotheby's International Realty brand and client experience. There has never been a better time to work with a trusted real estate professional, and we're ready to guide you with the highest levels of experience, stability, and expertise.
