“This was a complete surprise for Lori. She had no idea she was even nominated for the award by colleague Diane Verducci,” said Pam Hoffman, VP and Branch Executive of Pacific Union’s Berkeley and Montclair offices. “The honor being named of Realtor of the Year is certainly deserved by Lori.”

For the past several years, Lombardo has been a very active director on the Berkeley Board of Realtors and most recently developed campaigns as Chairperson of the Community Funds Committee to gain contributions for the Youth Arts and Education Fund and the Workforce Housing & Homeless fund. She worked to establish the application process for all the many applicants. Thanks to her efforts of awareness to the rest of the real estate community, the Workforce Housing Fund distributed more than $6,500 in the last two years and the Youth Arts & Education distributed $15,000.

Now Lombardo has undertaken yet another goal: the Realtor’s Cookbook. With the proceeds from sales, an estimated amount of $6,000 will go toward the Community Fund for next year.

“I have known Lori for some time. She has helped with other fund-raisers for the Aurora Theatre and associations in the area. I ma thrilled to see her recognized by the community of real estate agents who are her colleagues and family,” said Diane Verducci, Pacific Union agent with the Berkeley office.
