Don Hibberd was born into a third generation real estate and insurance agency established in 1921 on State St. in Media PA. In 1972 he matriculated into the University of Pennsylvania into the Wharton School as an insurance major. At night in the Wharton School evening school, he enrolled in all the real estate courses which he loved even though they were offered for no credit. Upon graduation, he chose to join the real estate division of Hibberd Brothers and the rest is history.
In the past 47 years, Don’s experience has ranged from owning his own Century 21 franchise that he sold to B. Gary Scott, becoming a vice president for the company in Pennsylvania, spending four years in commercial insurance for ECMB, managing properties for Center 21 David G. Hibberd Real Estate, again opening his own real estate business as Hibberd Real Estate and, finally, spending 10+ years with Fox and Roach Realtors, both with Prudential and later BHHS, until his latest move to Compass Real Estate.
Throughout his career, Don has always followed The Golden Rule in service to buyers and sellers. Those years of experience resulted in a top leader who with his partner and wife, Diane Nelson, has built a multi-million dollar, award winning team of agents, the Nelson-Hibberd Team.
