Tony Cody

I moved from NYC to the West Side when I accidentally bought the ultimate Fixer Upper in a foreclosure auction - and subsequently fell in love with Home Renovation and raising City-Chickens.  I’ve also fallen in love with Cincinnati and, 13 years later, call this home.  I came to Icon with over 20 years of Project Management experience which I use to balance our client deliverables and workload.  When I’m not at my desk, you’ll find me corralling chickens, tearing out walls or walking around Ikea so that I get all my steps in.
