The Sibcy Cline Northwest office has moved to a new location at 3825 Kraus Lane in Ross, Ohio off State Route 27 and Hamilton Cleves Road (Route 126). The office was open as of July 1, 2016 and the ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on July 19th.

Says Rob Sibcy, president of Sibcy Cline, “We are very excited about our new location for our Northwest office. We’re only 8 minutes from our previous office in Colerain Township. We are still busy serving buyers and sellers in that area. With our new location, our agents will now also be closer to the Ross area.”

Sibcy Cline Northwest is located at One Lane Plaza. The office space features 10-foot ceilings, modern agent support stations as well as several private meeting rooms. Says Sandy Stephens, Vice President/Sales Manager, of the Northwest office, “We’re a high-tech real estate office. Our new space is going to be a perfect place for them to conduct business. They can easily hook up mobile devices, tablets or laptops to complete any real estate tasks. Plus, our new 70-inch monitor is going to be a fabulous way for our agents to view homes with their clients.”

Sibcy Cline’s Northwest office has 43 agents with combined experience of 300 years and is growing. Stephens reported the office enjoyed an all-time record-breaking in May 2016 with a sales volume of $7.3 million.

Sibcy Cline Northwest is involved in two new home developments in Ross, Ohio: Venice Crossing, a 94-acre development that includes single-family detached patios homes; four-unit attached landominiums; and single-family homes. Homes are for sale from $215,000. The second development is Ross Trails, the former site of the Ross Trails Girl Scout Camp. This new home project is now constructing homes in its fourth section on half acre to 10-acre lots. Custom homes are priced from $300,000 to over $1 million.

Sandy says, “We hope the community stops by to see our new facilities. We are looking forward to serving our past clients and meeting the Ross community!”
