Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Girard Estates, Philadelphia, PA.
Dave Lombardo is an exceptional realtor, his level of integrity is absolutely incredible. I cannot begin to tell you how helpful and professional Dave has been from the start. The real estate transaction (sale) was seamless thanks to Dave and all real estate professionals involved.
Dave truly is an awesome person! He strives to make selling your house a positive experience. Should a concern pop up, be aasured that Dave will help to resolve it. I highly recommend Dave Lombardo as your real estate agent at Century 21 office of South Philadelphia. Excellent!
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!!!

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.

Dave knows the South Philadelphia market incredibly well. He is very personable and was always attentive, helpful, and available when we needed him. Even after the sale he made sure we were satisfied with our new home.

Dave was an absolute pleasure to work with. My search took much longer than anyone anticipated, but he was always there to keep me motivated and to provide me with sound advice. He never pressured me to make a high offer or to put out a dollar amount that I was uncomfortable with. He was always available to answer any and all questions I had, and from our first conversations, I felt very comfortable. From beginning to end, he kept my interests as his top priority, and I have already recommended him to a few friends who are considering buying property in the city.
Dave has a down-to-earth and straight talking personality. He gives you all of the info without opinion and allows you to process it before making suggestions (if you ask for them). His vast knowledge of the area and market only helped when I switched to use him as my agent! He educated me on many different programs and types of home loans for my potential use. We frequently talked even when we weren't planning to look at properties. As a first-time home buyer, Dave really helped me throughout the entire process, and I felt very prepared and comfortable as my settlement date approached. I cannot speak more highly of Dave and will gladly recommend him for a first time home buyer, the experienced buyer, and anyone in between!

Had a great experience with Dave. He's very easy to chat with and clearly knows his profession's ins and outs. Dave is also a very good person who will look after his client's best interest. We will definitely use him when we decide to sell our condo in the future.
Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 in Marconi Plaza-Packer Park, Philadelphia, PA.
Dave was always quick to answer my multitude of questions in a professional manner. He made selling our house and buying our "forever home" the best experience ever! Selling and buying a home can be quite nerve wracking, but with Dave as our realtor, it was truely an easy process! Dave understood just what type of home we were looking to buy, how much we wanted to spend and where we wanted to purchase. He kept us in range and in the area we wanted to stay! Dave was never pushy about trying to sell us a home we weren't interested in. Dave is very knowledgeable about all of the areas in South Philly which is a plus when you are new to this area and not sure which area you want to settle into. Dave has a knack for understanding your needs and wants and can find just the perfect home for you and your family (whatever the size of your family) He is great as a realtor and quickly became our friend. He helped us find our "forever home" within 4 days! Thanks Dave! We love you!

I was a first time home buyer and had done research of my own about the Philadelphia home market but any question I had Dave could answer. He was very helpful and informative about what I was going to encounter through the whole prosses of purchasing a home and is really great at what he does. A close friend of mine who had success working with Dave referred him to me and I would do the same.
