Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Girard Estates, Philadelphia, PA.
Dave Lombardo is an excellent real estate agent. He willingly shares his expansive knowledge of the local area and he constantly made himself available to answer questions or view houses. However, what really sets him apart from other agents is his attention to detail and understanding of real estate law. Dave will make sure that you meet all deadlines and that the deal goes through. I would highly recommend him and I plan on using him again when it is time to sell or buy my next home.
Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $525K in Center City East, Philadelphia, PA.
Dave was a pleasure to work with. Quite insightful and committed to the process. We really felt like he was acting in our best interests rather than maximizing his commission. His encouragement to be more aggressive in our negotiations saved us significant money. He's also pleasant, engaging and a great source of local knowledge--including all the best local restaurants! We would recommend him to anyone buying or selling a house in the area.

Bought a home in 2014 in Center City West, Philadelphia, PA 19146.
My significant other and I decided we wanted to purchase a home and become vested in our beloved Philadelphia. As many do, we began the typical search of homes on various real estate sites to gain a general understanding of the type of home we each were looking for; this led us to a home we were interested in and the listing agent was Dave Lombardo.
We called Dave and arranged a time to meet. Though that particular home was sold, our trip wasn't in vain. We automatically "clicked" with Dave. His impeccable knowledge of the Philadelphia area, friendly next-to-none personality, and pure interest and determination to get us a home that was meant for us, was (and I believe he is like this with all of his clients as we have witnessed numerous "run-ins" and phone conversations with others), precisely what we wanted and needed to during this life milestone.
Dave treats you like family and becomes a life-long friend. He will listen and take into great consideration your needs and wants, but at the same time, he isn't afraid to be honest with you; he tells you "how it is". He is not afraid to fight for you and do everything in his absolute power to get you the home you want; which he did for us and for that we are eternally grateful.
Dave is honest and to the point. If what you want isn't necessarily a wise choice, he will tell you why he thinks you should go with an alternative. I have never met anyone that cares so deeply about someone else's desires and financial situation so selflessly. And yes - selflessly. Yes he is a realtor and yes he makes a commission, but the commission he made on our measly (financially - not physically speaking) house was peanuts compared to other homes realtors sell (and those that I am certain Dave has sold) and he fought just as hard for us. I have ZERO doubt that he tries, strives, fights, cares, or anything of the sort, differently for any one of his clients; regardless of his incentive - financially or otherwise, you become a family friend to Dave Lombardo and he takes your choice of choosing him as your realtor very seriously and it is extremely evident.
To say you won't be disappointed with Dave Lombardo is a pure understatement. He WILL become your new family friend as he has become ours! Shortly after moving into our brand new beautiful home, we had a house warming party which Dave attended. We plan on Dave coming to all future parties!
Buying your next home is a life milestone that should be enjoyable. Inevitably it will be stressful; it is a large purchase and not everything goes smoothly, but Dave will make it as painless as humanly possible, as fun as possible, and will make sure, in the end, you have created fabulous memories during your home buying experience to last a lifetime while you create new memories in the house you chose and he will fight for you each and every step of the way!!!
Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Pennsport-Whitman-Queen, Philadelphia, PA.
Dave has sold two of my properties to date and has been an invaluable source of knowledge and insight into the market. Despite not even having the listing of my second property, he still worked just as hard to sell it himself. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Dave is your guy. From go he was there for us. Dave is a very well rounded realtor, he made the prosses of selling a home a walk in the park. I felt very confident that Dave was the right guy for the job. Anytime something needed to be done he handled the task. I am very happy with my experience I have had with his help. I highly recamend his professional skills.
