The Redknot Difference

Why Build with Redknot?

There are many custom home builders in Greater Cincinnati. Why choose Redknot Homes? Because we have brought organization and sophistication to the custom home building experience.

We can either provide a lot to build on, or we can build on our clients’ existing land. We are versatile, experienced with many home styles, from four-story rowhouses in the city, to expansive ranches on the outskirts of town. And our clients enjoy thorough communication with daily project manager updates in our online portal, and Redknot’s owner Mark Pottebaum personally oversees all projects to ensure the seamless build experience for our clients.

No Surprises Guarantee

Our team works hard to make our customers’ home building process seamless, with thorough budgeting and pre-construction planning. The result is the home of their dreams, with no financial surprises along the way.

Green Savings with LEED

We believe in building a quality home and this is why we incorporate LEED for Homes specifications in every home we build, for long-term environmental benefits, and long-term savings for you.

From navigating the Hillside Development Guidelines and zoning codes, to site planning and employing specialized hillside design ensuring stability, you can trust our team to deliver the home and view of your dreams.

Who We Are

Meet Builder, Mark Pottebaum.

Mark graduated Summa Cum Laude from Lehigh University with degrees in Finance & Accounting and started his career with KPMG, followed by a successful career leading finance organizations through significant growth and transformation. While these corporate beginnings seem like an unlikely start for a builder and developer, it’s lent well to creating a sophisticated, innovative, process driven, progressively technical organization in an otherwise antiquated industry!

Mark has been able to successfully evolve his lifelong hobby of construction to a one-of-a-kind residential home building business by emulating corporate strategies to implement structured processes and research to ensure best-in-class building techniques and quality products, with real-time customer engagement communication tools for the planning and building processes.  Who knew building could be so sophisticated?

Mark’s passion for building and creating, education, corporate experiences and love of this city have led Redknot Homes to not only offer this unmatched, seamlessly enjoyable process of building the most quality custom and unique homes in the city, but he’s also the city’s fastest growing local builder, leading LEED certified builder, and loving husband and father of three.
