off the spring market with a bang, ranking number one in MLSpin for
March 2016. “This comes as no surprise to us. We compiled a hand-picked
team of top producers who regularly dominate the market,” said Larry
Rideout, CEO and Co-Owner of Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty. “As
we build momentum, you will see some game changing properties coming
from our Cambridge office and our entire company.”
The company saw some very public early successes in the last two months. One closed listing
on Dana Street saw seven offers and a final price well over the asking
price of $1.048 million. Another property reached a large audience on
Curbed.com for achieving a selling price that may be familiar to some.
The winning bid of 271 Washington Street Unit 1, $1,103,141.59, ended in
the first six digits of pi which struck many Cambridge mathematicians.
Over the last few weeks Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty has
listed a number of homes at several different price points throughout
Cambridge and the surrounding areas. Included is 44 Walker Street, a
renovated home and carriage house listed for $3.898 million. 1C
Blanchard Road was listed last week for $1.245 million and is situated
on the Tip O’Neill Golf Course, overlooking the Fresh Pond Reservation.
Also listed last week for $4.25 million was 32 Bowdoin Street, a single
family home, fully redesigned by FoleyFiore Architecture. After 5 days
of being on the market, this home has already seen multiple offers.
In addition, the team is covering homes priced at the middle of the
market with 21 Fainwood Circle #1 currently listed for $618,000 and 150
Hampshire Street #4 listed for $675,000. Currently under agreement,
Hampshire Street saw nearly 50 parties come through the first open house
and an accepted offer that same night.
With a number of extraordinary homes coming soon to the market
including 29 Follen Street and 8 Craigie Street, Gibson Sotheby’s
International Realty’s Cambridge office is expecting to close nearly
$100 million in additional sales in the first half of the year. “We
thought the Sotheby’s brand was a perfect fit for Cambridge,” said Paul
McGann, President and Co-Owner of Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty.
“We have a fresh approach and a tremendous global network. It is truly a
higher level of service.”
