Westwood Cincinnati Neighborhoods

Westwood is Cincinnati’s largest neighborhood, and exudes charm & character just west of downtown Cincinnati.  Once incorporated as a village in 1868, Westwood was annexed by the city in 1896. Whether taking you’re taking the kids to the Gamble-Nippert YMCA, strolling down tree-lined streets, or going for a round of golf in Western Hills, Westwood has something to offer everyone. Local businesses are embraced, and there is a great mix of old and new throughout the neighborhood.

Like the rest of Cincinnati, the Westwood market is hot if you’re thinking about selling. Inventory is low, and properties are going fast! We picked up the pace in 2016, so if you want to find a place in one of Cincinnati’s quintessential city neighborhoods, call us today! Over the last 12 months, the Finn Team has been the #1 REALTOR® in both volume and number of transactions in Westwood, and we’d love to help you find your place in here!
