Kelly Lombardi - Buyer Realtor/Sales Associate

January 7, 2017 | By Vanessa Pollock

Kelly Lombardi

Buyer Realtor/Sales Associate

       

Kelly has always been about the love of the hunt. Whether it’s going to auctions and estate     sales for hidden treasures, or seeking out the tastiest bahn mi in driving distance, research in   pursuit of the best is just part of her daily life, and especially when it comes to finding a home.   When she and her husband set out to buy their first apartment in Brooklyn, she spent a spring   wearing out brokers with questions and leading her husband up countless flights of stairs in search of just the right apartment. In short fashion, she found a cozy, charming little place to call home and start her family. As the family grew, time came for her and her husband to leave Brooklyn in search of more space, and this time even more methodical research (punctuated by several tidy spreadsheets) led her family to Maplewood for its good schools, easy commute, strong sense of community, and lively culture. Kelly is a recent addition to the Vanessa Pollock Team, where she is inspired by the team vision of honesty, service, hard work, and transparency, and now she gets to continue the hunt by helping other families search for their own perfect home.


"By sheer chance my husband and i found ourselves dealing with Kelly under particularly stressful circumstances. We are moving  into New Jersey from the UK  for a  two year period with a  golden retriever. We have no idea about areas and have a specific criteria for  our home. We have 5 days  in which to view possible homes. Kelly  was professonal, patient, understanding and amazingly responsive. Whilst we didn't secure a home within our five day visit,  having met with Kelly I am certain we will find our home as she listens intently to individual need and deals with you patiently and symphatetically. Thank you Kelly!
