While going through the worst of times, Kim Gibbons demonstrated an ability to achieve despite major setbacks. After being diagnosed with breast cancer, Gibbons faced the uncertainty of being able to keep working, but she persevered and found a way to carry on in between hospital visits, treatments and surgeries. Even during the worst years of her treatment, Gibbons managed to increase her personal business by 30% year-over-year. She credits her success to the people with whom she has developed strong and lasting relationships – from existing clients, who make up a significant portion of her book of business, to the inspiring and supportive team of brokers she works with, as well as a great co-leader and partner, family, and friends.
With more than a decade of industry experience, Gibbons co-leads a team of brokers; in three years’ time, the team managed to increase its volume by 400% – part of which occurred during Gibbons’ recovery period. Her team has been consistently recognized as one of the top teams in Canada, and Gibbons herself has been a finalist at the Canadian Mortgage Awards for two years, including being the only individual broker nominated in the Best Internet Presence category.
As a cancer survivor, Gibbons has dedicated herself to related causes, in addition to her involvement in several industry organizations. She actively raises funds for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre through various events. At one event, her team managed to raise nearly $18,000 with a 60-km walk; on another occasion, Gibbons was involved in raising funds for a surgical microscope for the hospital to perform restorative surgery effectively.
