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.

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.

Donna Socha, Vice President Client Services

A 2011 survey of 118 companies conducted by Worldwide ERC (a workforce mobility association) indicated more national companies were transferring employees in 2011 than in the past few years, indicating more confidence in the economy and real estate market.

Donna Socha is Vice President of Client Services for Sibcy Cline Relocation Services and president of the Greater Cincinnati Relocation Council. She is expecting regional employee transfers to Greater Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeastern Indiana  to increase. As she was quoted in Dayton Daily News, “The southwest Ohio region has matched the uptick nationally. According to research by Sibcy Cline, relocations involving companies based in the region and employees transferring to this area are both expected to be up about 20 percent this year over last year…”
