New Sibcy Cline Kiosk at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport

Sibcy Cline has a new kiosk located at Terminal 3 at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (aka CVG) near baggage claim pick up. This 600-pound advertising tool is 96-inches long and includes white LED lights mounted above the kick-board area to draw attention. The Sibcy Cline logo on the kiosk features red LED halo lighting. A 55-inch monitor showcases Sibcy Cline videos including our listings’ visual tours. The back of the kiosk features a “Welcome Home” message in 20+ languages along with a beautiful photo of downtown Cincinnati.

The kiosk is drawing attention. Recently, a couple arriving from Las Vegas, saw the kiosk and took note of Sibcy Cline’s website address. They knew they were interested in moving to Hyde Park and stopped by at that office location to find a real estate agent!

Fun fact about CVG: In 2018, the airport served  8.9 million passengers and is one of the fastest-growing airports in the U.S.

Rob Sibcy – Named to Cincinnati Magazine’s 300 Most Powerful Business Leaders List

Rob Sibcy, Chairman of the Board for Sibcy Cline Realtors, was named as part of Cincinnati Magazine’s “300 – The Most Powerful Business Leaders.” The magazine studied the region’s largest public, private and nonprofit companies “…knowing that those leading the most powerful businesses are powerful themselves.”

Read a digital version of this magazine. (Rob is mentioned on page 88.)

The magazine asked all of the leaders to share personal stories. Here are the 11 questions from Cincinnati Magazine to Rob Sibcy:

1. Where did you grow up? Kenwood, then moved to Indian Hill when I was 14 years old.

2. Education? Started at Concord School on Montgomery Road and graduated to Indian Hill and was a graduate of Indian Hill High School. I attended Washington & Jefferson College and graduated with a business degree.

3. Why did you choose this field of work? I chose real estate because my father was a Realtor and I liked the idea of being my own boss and having my success depend on my effort.

4. First job? My first job out a of college was getting real estate license and selling real estate for my father’s company.

5. Toughest challenge faced or lesson learned? The toughest part about real estate sales was learning what to do and how to do it. It was a small company when I started selling and there was no training department, so I had to teach myself. I learned you could ask anyone a question and learn very fast.

6. Best advice received? The best advice I got was once, when I was complaining to my father how hard it was, he looked at me and said, “If it was easy everyone would do it and nobody would make any money.” I never complained again.

7. What you’d tell a recent college graduate about entering your field of business: We see new college graduates all the time and tell them if you go through our training and are willing to work, we can help you be a success. Our business is one that can last a lifetime if you are willing to work.

8. Favorite hobbies or leisure activities: Over the years my favorite sport is playing golf. My friends and I don’t take it too seriously and we have a lot of laughs as we play.

9. Favorite Greater Cincinnati attraction: Cincinnati has a lot of great attractions making it a great place to live and raise a family. One of the best family values for the whole family is the Cincinnati Zoo.

10. Favorite Greater Cincinnati charity: My wife and I have been on many boards and charities and all have been for great causes. The one that she is currently involved with is the Lindner Center of HOPE and the Sibcy House which we were able to be a part of from its founding and continue to be involved.

11. Favorite Greater Cincinnati restaurant: Cincinnati is fortunate to have some great restaurants. One of my favorites is from the past: The Maisonette – it was owned by friends and we loved going there. Currently two that we visit often are Embers and Trio’s.
