About Us

Cincinnati-based Potterhill Homes is a family-owned company founded in 2001 to provide better built homes for families in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Started by Cincinnati real estate pioneer Dan Rolfes, Potterhill Homes has been a labor of love from the beginning. Potterhill Homes President, Carolyn Rolfes, lives in a Potterhill Home.

Potterhill Homes' commitment to providing homeowners with the best value through building science is evident in the way we build homes. Maybe it's our German engineering roots, but we can't seem to stop improving upon our construction processes. We have built hundreds of homes using dozens of variations of energy efficient building techniques to make sure the homes we build are more comfortable, durable and energy efficient than any other homes available on the market.
