Are ionic bonds results of redox reactions?

Because if redox is the transfer of electrons between atoms, and ionic bonding is when one or more electrons go are transferred from one atom to another, wouldn't that mean it is basically a redox reaction?

You're getting the hang of this! If you form ionic compounds from neutral elements, you have a redox reaction. If you form ionic compounds from other ionic compounds (double displacement, for example) there isn't a redox reaction, though unless a change to the formal oxidation state of one or more of the species.
