At Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty, a wave of talented and future-minded women is shaking up — and elevating — the residential real estate industry. The company’s leadership team is distinctly woman-forward and, both independently and collectively, they excel at producing extraordinary results for their real estate associates, helping them uplevel their business and better serve their clients. Good agents provide an immense amount of expertise to their clients, and the firm’s women leaders have been exceptional at helping them articulate that value. The result is a company that has tripled its size over the past five years, increasing from eight offices to 27 throughout Massachusetts.

As the industry continues to evolve, today’s real estate advisors need more than just motivation and initiative to succeed. They need a culture of mentorship as well as in-depth training, marketing, and technology support that is second to none. Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty’s leadership team has created a culture of service, and their contributions to the communities in which they live, and work, are creating new opportunities and building a better tomorrow for us all.
