Our heritage began in Boston
Our founder, Betty Gibson, opened our first and longtime office in Boston’s South End in 1962. Betty was a pioneer, who was instrumental in turning the South End into the neighborhood it is today. Today, our sales associates demonstrate the same dedication to the communities they serve and call home. Real estate is a people-centric business, and our engagement and relationships with our clients are of the utmost importance. Whether you are looking to sell your home or buy a new one, our associates are perfectly poised to guide you through every real estate transaction, both locally and internationally. Our qualified agents speak a variety of foreign languages, have advanced accreditations, possess deep knowledge of their local markets, and offer a proven track record of successfully selling fine properties at all price points.
