Sibcy Cline is Voted Cincinnati’s Best of the Best 2021 by Enquirer Readers

Cincinnati Enquirer readers voted late summer and again in early fall for their local favorite businesses. Sibcy Cline Realtors was among the initial nominees. And, with the final tallies in, the public voted Sibcy Cline as their choice for Cincinnati’s Best of the Best in Real Estate for 2021!

The announcement was made via a virtual awards show:


We are delighted the public appreciates the work of our Realtors, support services and employees. It is always our honor to help those in our local market area find their dream home.

Your Winter Home-Maintenance Check List

Caulking WindowWinter is just a few months away. Now is the time for homeowners to take the time to perform one last check of their homes before cold weather really sets in for the next few months. Doing so can help to keep everyone in the house safe and warm, while also saving money and averting potential issues.

Pipes
Perhaps the biggest financial risk homes face during the winter are burst pipes. When that happens, water can spill into the walls and cause a lot of damage long before a problem is even detected. It’s always wise for homeowners to assess where they stand with their water pipes.

Pipes that run along the outside of a home or along the ceiling in the basement and are uninsulated could be at risk. Wrapping them in an economic, specialized material or even towels can help protect them even if a home’s heating system stops working. Wrap your pipes and keep your home at 65 degrees or more. Also, know where your home’s water shutoff is located, so you can quickly shut off your water in an emergency.

Other Insulation
When insulating pipes, it’s also important to make sure you aren’t losing heat through uninsulated attics or other spaces. Since heat rises, you may lose a lot more heated air through ceilings. When attics are properly insulated along floors, they not only help to save on heat, but also prevent potential ice dams from forming undetected on the roof because a warmer roof can lead to snow melting under its surface.

Up on the Roof
When thinking about the roof, it’s a good idea to make sure all tiles or shingles are in good shape; and all gutters are cleared of fallen leaves and other debris that can lead to backups and more potential ice dams. A quick trip up a ladder might be all it takes to identify problem areas before they become major issues.

Inspect Your Home’s Exterior
Inspect the exterior of your home and look for any cracks and holes along the edges of window frames and doorways. Fissures can be filled or covered with caulk, which will help keep the heated air inside this winter. While any individual crack or hole is going to be small, some experts estimate that the collective area of all of them across an entire house can amount to the size of an open window.

Need Help?
If you are not comfortable climbing onto the roof or doing other home-related activity, reach out to Sibcy Cline Home Services. They can make recommendations of vetted vendors to you.

September Local Home Sales Report

September home sales report 2021 Sibcy Cline Realtors

Throughout September in the Cincinnati region, home sales reached a record for sold sales volume during any September at $668.95 million.

Sibcy Cline Employee Spotlight: Tammy Young

  • Title: Relocation Director
  • Hometown: Amelia, Ohio
  • Current Home: Amelia, Ohio
  • Proudest Life Accomplishment: Becoming a Grandma
  • Proudest Career Accomplishment: Serving on the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® (LeadingRE) Advisory Council
  • Favorite local hangouts: Hiking with my dogs at East Fork State Park or Cincinnati Nature Center

Tammy Young’s job as Relocation Director for Sibcy Cline gives her many opportunities to help others. One thing she has found most rewarding in 18 years with Relocation Services is the difference she and her team are able to make in people’s lives when they need to relocate. “They are starting a new job, moving to an unfamiliar area, uprooting children from schools, and leaving their relatives and friends behind. We strive to make the home sale or purchase process as smooth as possible.”

In 2020, Tammy had the unique opportunity to make a big difference in the life of one of her family members: her cousin, Donnie Lawrence. Donnie had served several tours overseas with the U.S. Army, spending nearly a decade away from home and missing much of his daughter’s early years. When his time of service concluded, he returned home for good and was ready to buy a home in Clermont County, where he grew up.

That’s where Tammy came in. She was able to offer help to Donnie through Sibcy Cline’s Military on the Move® rebate program, while also connecting him with a Sibcy Cline REALTOR® team and a loan officer through Sibcy Cline Mortgage. With one united team on his side to support him, Donnie was able to purchase his first home and get cash back at the closing table.

Click here to read Donnie’s full story.

Not only was the entire process of seeing her cousin home with his family a rewarding personal experience for Tammy, but it was a professional success as well. Sibcy Cline received the “Hero of the Year” award from LeadingRE for proving above and beyond service to a community hero.

“This award is a professional honor, but more important, a personal honor,” Tammy says. “Donnie served several tours overseas, which resulted in many sleepless nights for his family. I was honored to see him safe and sound here, but also to be able to offer him the rebate. It was the least I could do.”

Tammy highly values being part of the LeadingRE network, which is the largest network of independent brokerages throughout the world. One of her proudest career accomplishments is serving as vice chair of their advisory council this year and moving into the role of chairperson in 2022. “The fact that I was nominated and elected by my peers is such an honor. I still look around the room at LeadingRE events and am astounded to be part of such a great organization with a wealth of industry talent,” says Tammy.

In addition to working with LeadingRE, the thing Tammy likes best about her job is working with branch managers and agents. “Our branch managers have so much knowledge and are always willing to answer questions, work together to resolve issues, or brainstorm solutions. I find our agents to be more thorough [than agents from other brokerages] about dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. Sibcy Cline just has good people that really care.”

The work Tammy does with Sibcy Cline and LeadingRE is not the only thing she’s proud of, though. “My proudest life accomplishment is becoming a Grammy, that’s the best promotion I have ever received. I thought being ‘Mom’ to three incredible kids was amazing, but seeing an entire new generation is such a joyous feeling,” she says.

Decluttering your Home? Items you Should Sell!

Decluttering your home Sibcy Cline Realtors

Decluttering your home can provide much satisfaction. With things cleared out, everything has a place with no messy piles. (If you are getting your home ready to sell, a good purge will save you lots of time for when you finally move.)

Here are some tips of what items are best to sell when decluttering:

Recreation Gear
Recreation equipment can be pricey when purchased new. You should do well earning cash, especially during the warmer months when people use these items most. Things such as tents, sleeping bags, backpacks and camping gear are sought after.

Old Computers/Typewriters
If you have an older computer or a typewriter, you might be able to make money when selling. People like to use old-style typewriters as decor. Some older computers are in demand. Do research before getting rid of such items.

Video Games
You’ll need to see what games and consoles are selling in today’s market. There are nostalgia collectors searching for older games for their collections. It’s all about supply and demand for what you will get when selling.

CDs/Records/Tapes/DVDs
If you are ready to digitize your music collection, consider selling old CDs. Vintage vinyl albums are highly sought after, so be sure to sell those! The same goes for movie DVDs.

Clothing
Kids’ clothes in gently used condition can be easily sold. (Holiday apparel is popular in the resale market.) Adult clothing can be sold, too. If the items are designer and in good condition, consider selling on Poshmark. Otherwise, donations might be the best bet to get rid of other unused clothes.

Exercise Equipment
Have a treadmill or exercise bike you no longer use? You should try selling it. Old equipment could be someone’s new workout tool.

Furniture
Out-of-date furniture items at the right price are appealing to buyers for DIY projects. Antiques might sell – it all depends on the style of the item.

Instruments
New musical instruments tend to be pricey. Try selling them secondhand. Pianos may be difficult to sell since they are heavy.

Books
Some hardcover books make great decor items, especially if they have interesting spines. Try to sell such books as a set. Newer books can be resold, too. Fiction books are popular for the resale market. Have a collection of cookbooks? Consider digitizing favorite recipes and minimizing your collection to your most-used books. The rest can be sold. If you have a comic book collection, check out pricing online. You might have a gold mine.

Baby Items
All of the accessories for babies – high chairs, cribs, strollers, etc… are in demand on the secondhand market. Sell them.

Toys
There is a market for vintage toys as well as current toys in clean, good condition. (The Barbie with no hair will need to be tossed.)

Art/Home Decor
Depending upon the item, you may be able to sell art or home decor. It’s worth a try. Items not in style or popular will probably need to be donated.

Holiday Decor
Ornaments can have value, especially vintage pieces. For example the Hallmark brand has collectible ornaments people want.

Tools
If you are paring down your tool set, sell what you do not need.

China, Dishes and Glassware
If your collection of dishes is large, perhaps it is time to downsize to what you actually use. Try to sell the rest. If that is not successful, consider donating them. The same goes for glassware.

Kitchen Appliances
There are many tools for mixing, dicing, baking, blending and more. Take inventory of your kitchen appliances and keep only those you actually use. Vitamixers and air fryers are popular right now and would be good items to sell. If your unused appliance is older, consider donating it.

Antiques
Not in love with an antique item in your home? You may be able to make some cash by selling it. You’ll need to Google each item to get a feel for value. Mid-Century Modern items are currently very popular. If the item is not popular, a donation might be best.

Bedding/Linens
You may be able to sell bedding or linens in good condition at a garage sale. Otherwise donate this type of item.

Items in your Garage
Yard equipment such as an old lawn mower, trimmer or other garden tools can be sold. Bicycles and scooters are other good items to sell. (Facebook Marketplace is a good place for these type of items.)

Where to Sell Items
If offline is your method, try a garage sale, flea market, or reach out to friends and family. Online, there are many options such as eBay (for items that can be shipped), Let Go, Offer Up, CraigsList, Poshmark (clothes/handbags/home decor), Facebook groups/marketplace or NextDoor. Everything But The House is another online option.

Julie K. Back – #1 Sales Agent in Ohio 5 Years in a Row!

Julie K. Back, Executive Sales President with Sibcy Cline’s Hyde Park office was named the top residential sales agent for the state of Ohio for 2021 (Pinnacle Individual Top Dollar Volume Award) for the fifth year in a row. The announcement was made on September 27, 2021 at the Ohio REALTORS convention held in Columbus, Ohio.

Robin Sibcy Sheakley, President of Sibcy Cline Realtors says, “Julie has had an amazing year once again. Her business rose by over 32 percent from last year. Her sales volume was $46,000,000 more than the fifth-ranked Ohio real estate agent! Considering there was a world-wide pandemic, we are simply in awe of her accomplishments. We are very proud of Julie and very happy she is part of our Sibcy Cline team!”

In Ohio, the ranking of the Top 5 individual dollar-volume agents began in 2010. Julie was #5 in 2011; #4 in 2012; #3 in 2013 and 2014; #2 in 2015 and 2016; and #1 for 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.

Julie was named Sibcy Cline’s top agent in September for the tenth straight year. In January 2021, Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors announced her as the top agent in the city with the Circle of Excellence 2020 recognition. That honor marked the fifth straight year for that honor.

She made the cover of Cincinnati Real Producers Magazine in 2019. Julie has been honored as one of the Women of Influence by Venue Magazine in 2018 and was among the “10 Women Who Mean Business” by the Business Courier in 2017.

About Julie K. Back
Julie has lived in both Hyde Park and Indian Hill with deep local ties as a Cincinnati native. She is a graduate of Summit Country Day and the University of Cincinnati. She began her real estate career in 1994 with Sibcy Cline. Her sales focus has been on eastern Cincinnati including downtown, Hyde Park, Montgomery,  Mt. Adams, Mt. Lookout, Columbia-Tusculum, Madeira as well as her own neighborhood in Indian Hill.

Julie’s knowledge of the marketplace, her caring spirit as well as glowing referrals from clients have created a large business network. She enjoys working with other agents and sharing her passion and dedication for real estate.

Julie is based out of the Sibcy Cline Hyde Park office located on Erie Avenue. Says Marie Simon, Vice President/Sales Manager of the office, “We are very proud of Julie! To be the top agent in Ohio for five consecutive years is an amazing accomplishment. Everyone at the Hyde Park office is thrilled for her. We see how hard she works. Her dedication to her clients is unwavering and now she is at the top of sales for not only Sibcy Cline, but our city and now again for our state.”

Says Rob Sibcy, Chairman of the Board at Sibcy Cline, “Julie has been part of our Sibcy Cline family for many years. We’ve enjoyed watching her business grow. She is certainly a very driven and a highly focused and positive salesperson.”
