It’s like a clown car!

| March 30, 2009

One of the comments we often hear when people look at the exterior of some Potterhill Homes is “it’s small”.  The comment we are after they are in a Potterhill Home is quite different.  It is most often in the ball park of “This house feels so much bigger once you’re inside”.  Is it magic?  No, [...]

About the authors

Carolyn Rolfes is the President of Potterhill Homes. And she's also a Rolfes - as in daughter of Dan Rolfes, the infamous Red Tag Man of Holiday Homes. So what does that say about Carolyn and who she is? Plenty. When you grow up the daughter of man who does commercials in his red underwear, you have no choice but to have a great sense of humor and humility from a very young age. Carolyn and Dan founded Potterhill Homes in 2001 and she has grown it to be one of the most successful home builders in Cincinnati. Home building is in her blood and she has a keen awareness of what consumers look for in a new home and how to deliver value at all levels. And while we don't make Carolyn dress up in green underwear for our commercials, we bet she would if we asked!
