Gibson Sotheby's Closes South Boston OfficeSo I was driving up West Broadway in South Boston this morning. As I drove by what used to be the second nicest South Boston real estate office, I noticed Gibson Sotheby's had shut down their South Boston branch. FYI, the nicest office is ours!

This branch had only been open for a few years, but it was still surprising. I called their office phone number, but there was no answer. I also contacted one of their agents to get some info, but have not heard back yet. Gibson Sotheby's is down to 6 offices with branches in the Back Bay, Waterfront, Dorchester, Westwood and two in the South End. Formerly Boston's largest independent real estate firm, Gibson Domain Domain was acquired in November 2006 by Sotheby’s International Realty

As the economy continues to under perform, you will see more real estate offices and other business' consolidate their offices. It's interesting because I was reading an article the other day about this topic. Follow the link below for more on real estate consolidation.
