Get to know Bernard Gibbons
I am a full time REALTOR® affiliated with Compass California in the San Francisco East Bay. My office is in Danville although I work mostly out of my home office. I specialize in helping people to buy and sell homes throughout The San Ramon Valley and Lamorinda.
I am originally from England (which is why they call me "The English Agent"), where I worked mostly in the computer industry, initially as a software engineer and later in sales and marketing in international recruitment and relocation specializing in Internet marketing. My sales, marketing and relocation background have proved invaluable in my real estate career and my experience with and enthusiasm for technology has definitely given me a major advantage over other, less tech-savvy agents. I use technology more than many agents (I build my own web sites, for example) and I am also an e-PRO, the only Internet related designation recognized by the National Association of Realtors and held by a very small percentage of Realtors.
I moved to California over 20 years ago and I currently live in Walnut Creek but I have also lived in Orinda Pleasant Hill, Danville and San Ramon. I know this area very well.
My wife, Sylvia, and my daughter, Michelle, are also licensed Realtors. This is a great benefit as we can cover for each other whenever there is a need.
When I'm not helping people to buy or sell real estate, you'll most likely find me in my wood shop. Much of my spare time is spent in woodworking of one form or another, either making furniture or picture frames for my wife Sylvia's oil paintings, or more likely at present, making home improvements.
My key values are Integrity, Loyalty, Commitment and Enthusiasm. I am also very accessible to the buyers and sellers I work with. My cell phone is switched on from 8am until 8pm every day. On the rare occasions I do not answer, this is because I am either talking to somebody else or in a meeting.
If you want to buy or sell a home in the San Ramon Valley, we really should be talking to each other.
