The Chapel Hill music scene called out to me in the early 1990’s, and I obeyed: Plan A – Play in bands and make tens of dollars. Plan B – Open a vintage guitar shop and meet and play with many of the great musicians in town and be around beautiful old instruments.
I sold & repaired vintage string instruments for 25 years, and I’m happy to talk about your old Gibson, as well as that old house that needs some updates, or the allure of a shiny, new house. I strive to help my clients in any way I can, and I work on their behalf as if it were me selling or buying a house. I did quite a lot of negotiating in my 25 years of buying and selling instruments and I have carried that over to my real estate career. Here are a few comments that former clients have posted on Google reviews over the last couple of years:
1) Bryan Gibson worked patiently, professionally and with great commitment to help me find the perfect house and community when I moved back to NC last fall. He took the time to research a range of houses to meet my various requirements (or hopes), arranged visits and took me to view houses, followed up on houses, gave excellent and thoughtful advice, and then worked with me through the whole purchase process. I highly recommend him to anyone moving to the area, or for people who live here and want to move.
2) My wife and I worked with Bryan Gibson at Franklin St. Realty and it was a great experience. We were living in Africa, needed to move back to Chapel Hill and wanted to buy a house as soon as possible. We contacted Bryan and he took us on FaceTime tours of multiple houses from our living room in Malawi. Eventually we found one we liked, negotiated the offer from overseas, working through Bryan. We even closed from Malawi with his help. My wife flew back to get the house set up while I stayed in Africa to wrap things up with my job. It was a smooth process – thanks, Bryan and FSR!
3) Bryan Gibson at Franklin St Realty sold my house for over the asking price in the midst of a full pandemic. His knowledge and negotiating skills were unparalleled, and he offered me perfect advice throughout the entire process. He really went the extra mile to make sure the sale went through smoothly. I couldn’t recommend him more highly. Very grateful for this guidance through the sale of my first home!
4) We just celebrated the sale of our house in Chapel Hill, and are 100% positive it would not have gone as smoothly as it did without Bryan Gibson. He has many years of experience running his own business, and that experience shone through during the whole process. The house was priced perfectly, and the negotiation was stress-free thanks to Bryan’s intuition and expertise. He had our interests at heart every step of the way, and I can’t recommend him enough. Wish I could give more stars!
