About

REALTOR Phillip Gibson, M.S., SRES, LHC, LinkedIn 

 

Phillip and his wife Julia Gibson have homes in Winston Salem and Lake Junaluska, NC. Their home in Winston Salem allows them to be closer to Duke University where Julia is pursuing her Master of Divinity degree while she works for the Yadkin Valley District of the United Methodist Church.

Common between the two of them is a heart for advocacy in all that they do. Phillip has served in the following roles: 

  • Western Carolina University Natural Resources Program Manager,

  • Statewide Radon coordinator for the NC Radon Program of the NC Department of Health and Human Services - a role he continues to date.

Phillip holds a Master of Science degree in Geography from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. His Bachelor of Arts  degree in Political Science is from the University of Louisville, where he is a native. While Phillip holds the distinction of being a Kentucky Colonel, he is honored to have been embraced by the people of North Carolina since 1997.

The Gibsons have two grown children, Truman and Simeon. Truman lives in Asheville and Simeon is a senior at UNC-CH.

Second only to his wife, Phillip's best friend is his dog Einstein who is from the Bald is Beautiful rescue group. Einstein is a hairless Chinese Crested with considerable personality.
