Gibson Sotheby's International Realty was founded in 1962 by pioneering real estate broker, Betty Gibson. Betty was truly an icon; she was instrumental in developing the growth and desirability of the South End and Boston as a whole.
Then there is the remarkable legacy of the Sotheby's name. Started in the 18th century as a rare book seller, Sotheby's became an auction house famous for selling the world's most valuable possessions. One day, a Sotheby's rep realized they were selling all belongings within the walls of the homes, and decided an organic next step would be to sell the walls themselves! Sotheby's International Realty was born. Since 1976, SIR has been providing the same white glove service to homeowners and home buyers at every price point. Sotheby's stands for quality - and luxury service for all.
