Gibson Island has maintained its own real estate brokerage for nearly 100 years. Initially called the Gibson Island Land Company when the Island was founded by Stuart Symington in 1922, it became Gibson Island Corporation Real Estate in 1950. The Gibson Island Corporation Real Estate Office is the official brokerage for Gibson Island properties, expertly representing sellers and those seeking to purchase a home on the Island. The office also manages a limited number of rental properties, most of which are owner-occupied. Sarah Kanne heads up the Gibson Island Corporation Real Estate Office; a position she assumed in 2014. She is a full-time resident of Gibson Island, tracing her initial association back more than 43 years when her parents purchased a home on the Island, and she has lived in three different houses on Gibson Island, the most recent being a new build. Sarah’s real estate experience, extensive knowledge of Gibson Island, and active involvement in Island affairs, further augmented by her background as a lawyer, enables her to ethically, effectively, professionally, and zealously represent those who sell and buy Gibson Island properties. Sarah has held many positions in the community including: Vice-President, Gibson Island Corporation; President, Gibson Island Historical Society (GIHS); Chair, GIHS Renovation Committee; Membership Chair, Gibson Island Club; and Gibson Island Corporation and Gibson Island Club Board Member. Sarah is assisted in the office by Darlene Reil and Neva Leigh, licensed realtors who also live on the Island full-time and who are extremely knowledgeable about Gibson Island and its community. Sarah welcomes your inquiries about Gibson Island real estate. Please call or email her any time. You will receive excellent service.

Gibson Island

An enchanting, two by three mile gated, private island accessed by a man-made causeway from the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. With no Bay Bridge to cross, Washington DC, Baltimore and Annapolis are only an hour or less away, and BWI and the train station are less than 25 minutes away. The Island’s Master Plan was designed by premiere architect Frederick Law Olmstead, who developed many important landmarks, including Central Park in Manhattan. With nothing commercial other than a private country club and a United States Post Office, the Island’s amenities through the Gibson Island Corporation include its own police force, a 24-hour manned gatehouse, beaches, a nature trail, bird sanctuary, Historical Society and museum, playground, Service Department for contracted home and yard maintenance, a full service yacht yard, and a 44-acre spring-fed lake. The Gibson Island Club (membership by invitation) offers year-round fine dining, yachting through membership in its nationally renowned Yacht Squadron, an award-winning Charles Blair Macdonald/Seth Raynor designed 9-hole golf course, tennis, croquet, skeet shooting, a Garden Club, a fully equipped fitness center, swimming pool, junior programs, and a pavilion at the southernmost point of the island to rent for private parties. Gibson Island Harbor is sheltered from all sides, offering safe anchorage for any size boat. With 200 private homes on about one third of the land, the remaining two thirds are owned by the residents and are used for recreation, forestry and open spaces. There are quiet roadways for bicycling and jogging and residents can enjoy kayaking, canoeing, fishing, windsurfing, paddle boarding, and sailing. Water, wildlife and woodlands create an extraordinary setting for our outstanding selection of homes both on and off the water. Gibson Island has the perfect weekend getaway, vacation retreat or permanent home waiting just for you!  By appointment only, please contact the Gibson Island Corporation Real Estate Office.
