Getting Real (Estate)

    With spending more time at home than ever before, you may be itching for a change. We chat with Montgomery-based Build Collective about the local housing market, and how not even a pandemic has slowed this one-stop-shop for buying, selling, and building.


    When it comes to real estate in the Greater Cincinnati area, whether you want to build or buy, Build Collective wants to be the team you turn to. 

    “Build Collective is a one-stop-shop real estate team,” explains Build Collective’s Marketing Manager Becky Mannix. “We are a full-service firm that assists buyers, sellers, and custom building clients with every step of the process.”

    At Build Collective, clients find a range of services that include listing sales, home buying, land and lot acquisition, market evaluation, architecture design consulting, builder selection, and everything in between. 

    The goal at Build Collective is to make the process of buying, building, or selling a home a lot easier than what you would find somewhere else. As one of the top sales groups in the Tri-State area, Build Collective and its team led by Mike and Bill Hines prides itself on the quality of services they provide. 

    The history of Build Collective dates back to 2011 when Mike and Bill Hines, former land developers, wanted to create a business that was designed to assist buyers build a custom home and acquire the best lots in town.

    “Our specialized construction and development experience, not to mention our more than 30 years of relationships with virtually every builder in Cincinnati, has uniquely qualified us to best help buyers build their dream home,” says Mannix. 

    In the midst of COVID-19, real estate has been deemed an essential business. Therefore, Build Collective has continued to work with clients on buying, building, and selling needs. 

    “Listings are still out there, so we’re available to help you buy or sell if you need to,” says Mannix. “We’re going to make sure we take care of you.”

    As they work with clients during these unprecedented times, the Build Collective team ensures that they are following all local, state, and federal guidelines. This includes limiting the number of open houses so that there is less traffic and movement in homes that people are still occupying and to reduce the number of people visiting homes that are newly constructed. Additionally, Build Collective has used their camera, Facebook Live videos, and even done walk-throughs on phones with clients so that they can have better visuals on the homes they’re interested in buying since they can go inside. 

    Of course, all situations are handled on a case-by-case basis, since no two situations are the same. “All decisions are made to help protect clients and the company, so if you have a question, please reach out to us so that we can make a decision and take the best plan of action,” says Mannix.

    Build Collective is located in the heart of Montgomery, and prides itself on their location to serve clients in top markets and areas that revolve around the I-71 corridor.
