I'm Von Gipson, (Residential MatchMaker). I pair people with the perfect home "Right Size" their life. As a 10 year experienced Licensed Texas Realtor and Naval Veteran I serve families of Collin County in North Texas. I will locate, negotiate, and navigate the Process and Pitfalls of Buying and Selling a home. My decade of unique connections, business savvy and high tech tools put my clients in a position of power whether Buying or Selling.
Prior to becoming a Realtor, I had a very successful career in the Healthcare Industry as a Physician Recruiter. Tasked with locating the best Surgeons across the country, partnering with Hospitals and Operating Centers across the country gave me the opportunity to understand the factors that are apart of making Life Changing decisions and finding the appropriate solutions for all parties. I've negotiated salaries, home purchases, partner packages, and coordinated relocation for my clients. Throughout my time as a Physician Recruiter the "One Thing" I took away is people are fundamentally the same, we are all trying to either Avoid a Loss or Create a Gain and finding the Harmony between the two is where success lies. Your next Home Buying or Selling experience deserves to be Smooth as Silk. Trust Von, I'm smooth as silk.
