When Bob Gibb visited John’s Island in 1976, he knew it was where he wanted to live one day. A few years later, he and his wife purchased a home in the more-than-upscale community he’d fallen in love with. A Kansas City native and graduate of the University of Kansas, Bob moved to Manhattan to become a successful investment banker on Wall Street from 1968 to 1989 before moving to John’s Island when he switched careers to enter real estate. After 10 years as a top producing broker, Gibb proudly purchased John’s Island Real Estate Company from the late developer’s daughter, Helen “Lollie” Ecclestone, in October of 1999, and has been working with the same affluent client base he knew as a banker. As a John’s Island resident for over 30 years, Bob has earned the reputation as the leading luxury real estate broker and agency on the barrier island. 

Bob consistently leads the industry in sales volume and attracts top talent, ensuring his team of experts represent only the best in the industry. His passion and extensive knowledge make him and his team the go-to source for information and education about the ultra-luxury lifestyle on John’s Island. Giving back to the community is just as important to Bob, who’s philanthropic resume reads as a “Who’s Who” among John’s Island and the local community, where he recently served on the Board of Directors for The Riverside Theatre, Northern Trust Bank, Community Church and several other local corporate boards. He was also formerly on the Board of Trustees for The Treasure Coast Wine Festival and Saint Edward’s School and was a founding board member for Marine Bank & Trust in Vero Beach.
