About Us

For six decades our locally owned building company, founded by Walter Gerbus Sr., has been crafting exquisite custom homes in the greater Cincinnati area and Northern Kentucky.  

Offered in the finest custom home communities or on your homesite, our homes are built on solid family values and a strong work ethic that has guided our company (and family) for three generations.  

“Designing and building a custom home is a partnership, an intimate collaboration between our client and Homes by Gerbus. And while we will address the technical details and manage the processes, it’s you who will make the selection and design choices that will make our house your home.”
– Alan Gerbus

From handshakes at the time to contract, to hugs at the time of closing, we pride ourselves on building homes of uncompromising value, quality, and style. We take great comfort in the accolades that we receive from our satisfied clients who praise our team for listening to their concerns, addressing their questions, and providing a pleasurable and stress free home building experience.

The Homes by Gerbus, Inc. family of companies also includes Gerbus Remodeling, Inc. and Gerbus Properties, Inc.

FIVE STAR ENERGY RATING: Cincinnati-area home builder Homes by Gerbus has consistently performed at a very high level in qualifying their homes for the FIVE STAR + HERS Index Rating (Home Energy Rating System Index) as measured by an independent Energy Analysis Rater.

Homes by Gerbus submits every home that they build for the independent, third-party inspection required to earn the HERS Index rating. The home’s effective insulation, high-performance windows, tight construction and duct work, and high-efficient heating and cooling equipment qualified their homes as at least 50% more energy efficient on heating and cooling than required by the 2004 International Residential Code.

Recipient of numerous home building awards awards, Homes by Gerbus is the Peoples Choice Award winner for the 2023 Cincinnati Homearama in Martin’s Gate. 


We strive to build your dream. Our ultimate reward is to see customers become partners, as their dream turns into reality – one house at a time.
