Builder Profile: Zicka Homes

With a history that stretches back more than 50 years, Zicka Homes has earned the title of Cincinnati’s largest custom home builder. Still the company isn’t striving for just quantity; quality matters, too.

Mike Zicka founded the company in 1967, and today his children, Julie, Patrick and Katie, oversee it. A long-time HOMEARAMA participant as both developer and builder, Zicka Homes is excited to once again host the show at Parkside Estates at Coldstream in 2021.

A Process Perfected

Zicka Homes offers would-be homeowners the benefit of their five decades of experience. In fact, all of Zicka’s team members have been with the company for at least 20 years. Zicka Homes has been recognized as Builder of the Year multiple times. Buyers have come to expect Zicka Homes to have all of today’s “must have” amenities like dramatic lighting, innovative outdoor spaces, luxurious baths, custom cabinetry and designer moldings.

For the company’s clients, all this history translates to a smooth design,build and buying process. From first sketches to move-in, Zicka’s team aims to create relationships with all their clients that go beyond building a home. One essential element in forging those relationships is having the right professionals and well-honed processes to make everything go smoothly.

With architects and interior designers on staff, Zicka’s team is able to provide expert advice at every stage. Homeowners can find inspiration in one of the company’s stock floor plans or model homes. As the project progresses, clients take advantage of the company’s design center to make all their selections in one handy location.

With all the design decisions made, Zicka’s crews get to work building homes of the highest quality in a range of top communities around the Cincinnati area. You’ll find Zicka currently building in highly desirable residential developments in Mason, Loveland and Anderson. They have also built infill homes in established communities in Greater Cincinnati like Montgomery and Madeira.

Coming Home to Parkside Estates

In Anderson Township, Zicka has been hard at work developing and building in Parkside Estates at Coldstream. This upscale community surrounded by nature is the perfect setting for next summer’s HOMEARAMA. The East Side location gives the community easy access to Coldstream Country Club, Riverbend, Coney Island and much more.

Several builders have already joined Zicka Homes and reserved their HOMEARAMA lots in the community. One Zicka home currently on the market at Parkside Estates is a custom-designed two story with a spacious first floor centered around a gourmet style kitchen with a huge pantry. The kitchen is open to the family room and double wide stairs lead to the finished walkout lower level. Upstairs are four generous size bedrooms and a laundry room.

The whole team at Zicka Homes looks forward to welcoming visitors and future residents to Parkside Estates.
