Bob and Debbie grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, specifically Santa Clara County and Silicon Valley where they met and started their family. They moved to Danville in 1993 for the highly rated San Ramon Valley Schools and a better lifestyle. Both are passionate for the outdoors and enjoy hiking, gardening, fine wine and Real Estate!
Bob earned a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration and spent over 23 years in Silicon Valley starting and Managing Operations for Medical Device Companies before transitioning into real estate in 2004. Debbie also worked for many years in a Manufacturing Capacity for semiconductor startup companies in Silicon Valley. Later she earned a Bachelor Degree in Landscape Architecture from UC Berkeley and transitioned from Semiconductor to Landscape Architecture & Planning to also owning her own Landscape Design Studio until she merged into Real Estate to join Bob in 2008.
Bob and Debbie raised their children, Jacquelyn and Bobby in Danville where they graduated from Monte Vista High School. The Gibbs are proud to call the East Bay their home and love to help clients buy, sell and invest in Real Estate in Danville and the surrounding areas!
When Bob and Debbie aren’t showing properties or writing contracts, they spend their time with family and friends and enjoy hiking and biking on the many trails the East Bay has to offer. They also enjoy gardening and entertaining at their Danville home or just enjoy walking around town and having breakfast at Sideboards or Chow and enjoy having dinner at one of the many great restaurants.
“I am a long time property owner and investor here in Danville. My father was a well known and respected agent and so I know several of the top agents in the area. There is ultimately only one reason a property will sell or can be purchased and that is price. A good agent knows and will articulate this principal with a clear conscience not low balling for a quick sale or telling a client a high price to get the listing…. I asked Bob and Debbie to appraise my properties when the market got hot this past year. I was very appreciative of their perspective and depth of knowledge for the confluence of market changes. They were accurate in predicting the rise and fall of inventory and how to position a property to achieve the best price. I have worked with the Gibbs Team on several projects and find them to be hardworking, trustworthy, and insightful. Picking the right agent means knowing that they are working for you…not just a commission…this is how the top smart agents build their clientele. Bob and Debbie understand these principals and put them to work everyday….thank you folks for all you do!”
“I met Bob & Debbie Gibbs several years before I listed my home in San Ramon, CA. Once I found out I was going to be transferred out of the area I decided to call Bob & Debbie because of their reputation in the community. From the very beginning they took the time to research the local prices in the area and provided me with realistic guidance about where to price my house. They also explained their marketing plan which they executed flawlessly. Despite a soft housing market, my house was sold in 48 hours, while other homes nearby just sat on the market for months. My home sold quickly because of the preparation and the marketing plan they put together. I have had to buy and sell a number of homes over the years; however, without a doubt my experience with Bob & Debbie was the best experience I’ve ever had with real estate agents. They work hard and take their jobs very seriously…I felt like I was their only client!”
My Wife and I couldn’t have been happier in our experience working with Bob and Debbie! We found them while researching reviews on Yelp and Zillow and were confident that based upon their reputation we would have a great experience. Our home buying process took many twists and turns including wanting to find a rehab property at a discount to simply wanting to find a good property, based on our budget, at a fair price. We took a total of 8 months to find and house to settle on, and during that time we were able to really get to know Bob and Debbie. Based upon our experiences with them, we now have the privilege of calling them our friends. You will find Bob and Debbie to be knowledgeable, generous, sincere, available, responsive, persistent, patient, and hard working. My favorite things about Bob and Debbie are their high levels of integrity and honesty. When buying a home, and in life, finding people to do business and life with who have integrity is, in many ways, priceless. Thanks for everything Bob and Debbie! 5/31/2015
Bob did an amazing job finding a home for my boyfriend and me! I’ve heard a ton of horror stories about buying real estate in the Bay Area with prices going up and low inventories. We had the opposite experience though. We got pre-approved for a mortgage in late January of 2014. In February Bob found us the perfect home. Now in the middle of March we are moved in and loving our house! If we created the bid for the house ourselves I’m sure we wouldn’t have gotten it. But Bob helped us craft the perfect bid and was in constant communication with not just us, but with the selling agent on the other side as well.
From the very get-go Bob treated us like A+ clients. This is despite our lower-than-average budget for a house in the Bay Area. Bob even called us on his days off. He was proactive with our mortgage broker and was in constant communication about the next step in the process. As first time home buyers I can’t tell you how much we appreciated Bob navigating us through the entire process start to finish. Don’t get me started on his crew of home inspectors either. They were absolutely wonderful. We are so grateful that we chose Bob and Debbie to help us buy our first house.
Bob is a good guy. He and his wife were our buyer’s agent and were also the seller’s agent when we bought our very first house in Fremont, CA. Bob was very responsive and was always there for us when we had questions or concerns. I would work with Bob again.
