Murray Gibbons Profile
DRIVEN BY YOUR DREAM
Murray Gibbons is a well-known Realtor in South Western Ontario. He has a remarkable understanding of Real Estate, selling for over 25 years. He has an extensive knowledge of Agricultural, Rural, Investment and Development properties from Lake Erie in Southern Ontario to Georgian Bay in the north and from Windsor in the West to Ottawa Valley in the East. There has not been one place where he has traveled to in Ontario in the last few years that people have not recognized him and shouted across some rural exhibition or farm or horse or cattle auction: "Hey, Murray, where've you been?" followed by at least an hour of reminiscing with many old customers and friends.
He lives to make deals and achieves a 'high' on every transaction. Murray was born in Norfolk County and worked hard as a young lad on a typical dairy farm in Norfolk County. When he was barely a teen, he traveled throughout their area involved with the family's cattle business. He was given the freedom to deal with farmer/clients and cattle breeders while he was only 14 years of age. His first car at age 16, bought and paid by his own sales' profits was enough incentive at the time to give him what has become an inherent drive and will be I'm sure, until his day of 'reckoning' by the Almighty. I am certain he will be 'called to the Heavenly Farm' in the middle of closing a deal.
Of course the excitement of travel and sales at an early age developed into a trait he still carries in his real estate career. He has also developed and carried with him many contacts and business associations, some of which he still maintains and employs in his present career. They all respected him as a young man and the same perpetuates to this day. He deals with the smallest and the largest all with the same degree of care.
At age 22, Murray assumed the business of exporting and sale of Canadian Holsteins to the U.S. and Mexico, purchasing cattle from many farms throughout Ontario and Quebec.
Murray completed studies at the University of Guelph and acquired his B.Sc.Agr. He commenced his Real Estate career at an independent brokerage in 1987 and now is a Broker of Record for his own Brokerage Great Lakes Realty & Auctions Inc in his own right.
His love of the countryside and farm lands will always keep Murray assisting new clients actualize their dream. He personally has experienced dreams coming true for so many.
His progeny consists of 4 great sons of whom he is so proud.
Murray's motto: "every problem has a solution" inherent since childhood is literally his 'bed' for his strong daily determination. It is almost impossible for Murray to get a good night's sleep. He doesn't sleep alone; he goes to bed with all his clients'concerns/obstacles and wakes up with solutions.
In all areas succeeded in being the top salesman in offices for consecutive months and years but never accepted available recognition for public display.

Due to his profile in the industry, massive client list, intensive Internet Marketing Strategies and full knowledge of historical and present Agricultural and Real Estate Industry, Murray can effect almost any transaction with 'ease' and assurance to the client.
The Real Estate profession is one where generally a client is a client on a one-time basis, but as witnessed, Murray still has most of his clients, even after 10 to 25 years who return for more advice, service, CMA's and purchase or sales.
