Sibcy Cline Realtors Makes the Business Courier’s Top Private Companies List for 2020


The Business Courier published its annual Greater Cincinnati’s Largest Private Companies list and Sibcy Cline was part of this ranking at #113 on the list. It was the only residential real estate company featured in these rankings.

Robin S. Sheakley, President of Sibcy Cline, was quoted in this issue of the Courier when asked about inspiring others in troubled times: “We are in the housing business and therefore, our professional life is everyone else’s personal life. Providing a sense of security has influenced every decision we make. While real estate was deemed an essential service at the onset of the Covid-19 stay-at-home orders, we quickly responded by March 17. While we had the technology in place to ensure business continuity, we needed to provide access, training and resources to ensure each agent and employee was equipped to leverage them. Safety, creativity and productivity continue to be our priorities. On April 2, we hosted a virtual continuing education class dedicated to fair housing, having no idea how salient and timely it would become. Sharing stories and supporting one another is as essential as providing the platform(s) with which to do it. We could not and cannot communicate enough to empower people during times of uncertainty.”

This 2020 list of the top 150 companies combined had sales of $50.6 billion and a workforce of 164,000 people.
