Read about a local home builder that makes the custom home building experience one that’s actually enjoyable.

Cincy Chic: What is Sterling Homes?
Casey Longbottom, Project Coordinator at Sterling Homes: Sterling Homes is a full custom home builder serving the Cincinnati area. We are an award-winning full-service firm dedicated to quality master craftsmanship. As our portfolio grows, Sterling Homes is becoming more synonymous with innovative design and an impeccable building experience.

Cincy Chic: What is the inspiration behind Sterling Homes?
Longbottom: The Sterling Homes team is inspired by the creative potential of each project. Never building the same home twice, the Sterling team focuses on original designs and breaking through the artistic ceiling of typical home building.

Cincy Chic: Who’s behind Sterling Homes?
Longbottom: The Sterling Homes team is a carefully assembled group of professionals who share the same vision as the founder, Brad Olinger. Integrity, honesty and a hands-on approach to building a one of a kind home. The team at Sterling truly enjoys working with their clients to not just create a house to live in, but to help pull a dream off a sheet of paper and make it reality.

Cincy Chic: What types of homes does Sterling build?
Longbottom: Sterling Homes takes pride in building impeccable custom homes. Whether the home is nestled on a hillside inside the city limits of Cincinnati or on the rolling green fields of a golf course in Anderson Township, Sterling strives to design and build the perfect fit for all of our clientele.

Cincy Chic: How do you work with homebuyers on creating the perfect home?
Longbottom: Our team knows that with each buyer, comes a new opportunity to be creatively different and even in some cases challenged. We like to spend quality time with our buyers in the beginning phases of their project discovering who they are and what is ultimately their dream home. We let them meet with our designer during the initial planning session and then select one of our architects who will work best with their vision. Our process stands out from the rest as it starts with creating a personal relationship between the buyer and the Sterling Team. This relationship has been found to go past the move in date, and we call many of our homeowners’ family!

Cincy Chic: What makes Sterling Homes unique?
Longbottom: A home built by Sterling Homes may be hard to point out. And that is a wonderful thing! Specializing in capturing the architectural surroundings of the neighborhood have become something that Brad and his team work diligently at achieving. A Sunday drive around the Mt. Lookout and Hyde Park neighborhoods can show how fluid a Sterling home can look against a backdrop of old oak trees and historic sidewalks. Details are incorporated every step of the selection process from flickering gas lights to custom hand molded brick.

Cincy Chic: What is new on the horizon for Sterling Homes?
Longbottom: Sterling Homes will always continue to search for creative and fun projects to work on. While building single family custom homes will always be the heart and soul of what Sterling does best, there will never be boundaries placed on what the team can achieve. Coming in the fall of 2019, Parkland View, seven single family attached homes in Mt. Lookout Square will start to take shape. A picturesque timber-frame dream home will emerge from the country hills of Clermont County. The ground will break on the City of Cincinnati’s first ever Homearama show and Sterling will be there, quietly standing out, authentic and genuinely honored to be part of it all.
