About Ivan Hovis Gobern

IVAN HOVIS GOBERN

Broker

Originally from New England, I’ve had the privilege of living and working in some of the most bustling cities in the nation. From Washington D.C. to San Francisco, I’ve been able to build strong relationships coast to coast. While I’ve traveled all over the US, my family moved to Wake County from rural NC in the 1950s and I’m proud of my deep Triangle roots!

I love taking a hands-on approach – meeting my clients and buyers right where they are and managing our collaboration every step of the way. As an active Real Estate Broker in Raleigh-Durham, I approach every challenge with endless optimism and energy – I sincerely believe if we are working together, there’s not much we can’t accomplish.

When I’m not meeting with clients or showing properties, I enjoy letting my dog, Al, make the decisions, or staying active road cycling, kayaking, traveling for beach or mountain weekends, gardening, volunteering, non-profit organization fundraising, renovating my home, and spending time with my family, and last but never least, eating and laughing with friends I love!

It’s a long list, but one thing I always keep at the center of it all – my attitude always reflects gratitude.

Ivan's Clients

"We Had an Excellent Offer, First Day on the Market"

"It was a pleasure working with Ivan. From start to finish he treated us like we were family. In our absence, he made sure the house was deep-cleaned and beautifully staged. His pricing guidance led to us getting an excellent offer on the first day on the market which we accepted. He is knowledgeable, tenacious, and an all-around wonderful individual to work with."

Ivan's Clients

"Ivan Had the Midas Touch!"

"A few years back, I told Ivan I wanted him to help my kids buy homes. He said challenge accepted, as soon as they’re ready. Fast forward, Ivan just worked with my son to buy his first home - then, just after closing, the home next door was “coming soon”. I asked Ivan to get the house next door and within 24 hours, it was ours! Talk about results. Who says realtors can’t make it happen? I’ll tell you this, Ivan had the Midas touch for us. Highly recommend him for that personal touch."

Ivan's Clients

"His Ability to Negotiate Got Us Our Home"

"Working with Ivan was excellent. He kept the ball rolling and updated us frequently throughout our home-buying process. I firmly believe that his ability to negotiate is what got us into the home of our choice (before it had officially hit the market!). We are so happy with our new home and recommend Ivan to anyone looking to buy in the Durham/Triangle area."

Ivan's Clients

"We Worked with One of Raleigh's Best"

"I worked with Ivan on a real estate transaction that closed today in which Ivan was the listing agent and I was the buyer’s agent. Through this entire COVID situation, Ivan Hovis Gobern remained professional and patient. From beginning to end, Ivan was great to communicate with and work with. In these trying times, it was such a wonderful experience for my buyer and myself to be able to say we worked with one of Raleigh’s best. I look forward to working with you again in the future Ivan!"
