BOSTON--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Only a few weeks into the spring market, one Boston real estate firm
is seeing tremendous success. Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty recorded 80 Under Agreements and over 100
sales transactions in January and February (source: MLS). The firm is ranked #5 in the state and has the #1 office in
Boston’s Back Bay for 2010 sales-to-date. But their recent success is not just measured in sales figures. The firm
has made some strategic moves over the last few years, making them the top-ranked Boston-based firm in the state.
They expanded with office acquisitions in the Waterfront, Charlestown and Westwood areas. They also invested in
the firm’s infrastructure, including additional marketing and relocation services for their clientele. “We saw the
importance of offering the finest services to each client,” says Michael Hansen, President and Co-Owner. “We knew
our clients would appreciate the special efforts we now provide.”
All the improvements have attracted highly successful sales associates. Once again, Gibson Sotheby’s recognized
Beth Dickerson as their top agent in 2009, having sold the highest volume of sales. Dickerson’s average sale price
was more than $3 million last year and she recorded the most expensive sale in Boston, a condominium on Beacon
Street in the Back Bay that sold for $9.25 million. Co-Owner, Paul McGann, meets regularly with agents who are
considering the firm. “Most often, agents who join us are already successful – but they are looking to go to the next
level; to grow their business.” It is that growth potential that brought agents like Tammy DeWolfe to the company.
After years in the business, she joined Gibson Sotheby’s Westwood office last month, citing the company’s support
as a major motivating factor.
