Rob Sibcy graduated from Washington and Jefferson College with a BS in Economics. He then joined Sibcy Realtors, as it was then known, as a sales associate. The company had been started by his grandfather in the 1930’s and was being run by his father Robert J. Sibcy.
In 1968 at the age of 25, Sibcy was thrust into the corporate leadership role when his father suffered a heart attack and two strokes that left him partially paralyzed and unable to speak. “I was a sales agent one day and President of the company the next,” Rob recalls.
Despite the recession of 1969 and the need to learn the business, Sibcy, Inc. thrived under Rob’s leadership. “There was no option,” he says. “And my father’s illness was certainly strong motivation.” In 1971, Rob married the former Pamela Dixon.
When Rob was named President, the company had one office and 15 sales associates. In 1980, immediately prior to skyrocketing interest rates, Rob acquired the Robert A. Cline Company and Sibcy Cline, Inc. was born. He has remained motivated throughout the growth of the company and its affiliates. Today, there are 23 branch offices with over 1,100 real estate agents in Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, Dayton and Southeast Indiana.
Rob has diversified his business interests with the founding of affiliate companies including Sibcy Cline Mortgage Services, Sibcy Cline Relocation Services, Sibcy Cline Insurance Services, Sibcy Cline Home Services, Inc., Sibcy Cline Title Agency, and the Sibcy Cline Guaranteed Sale Program. His numerous affiliations include all local area boards of Realtors®, and the Ohio, the Kentucky and the National Associations of Realtors®. He serves on the Board of Directors of RELO, a national network of independent real estate brokers. Outside the industry, Rob serves on the Board of the Armrel Byrnes Company, the Myers Y Cooper Company, the Greater Cincinnati Foundation Finance Committee, and on the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens Finance Committee.
Rob and his wife, Pam, reside in Indian Hill. They have three grown children, Robin, Shannon and Nelson Sibcy.
