The Tahoe Sierra Board of REALTORS® named Michael Lombardi REALTOR® of the Year for 2014. Mike was recognized during the installation and awards dinner at the Resort at Squaw Creek for his strong ethical conduct, service to the real estate profession and to the community, as well respect from his peers.

During the month of October, nominations for the award were accepted from TSBOR members, and the board received numerous recommendations. The nominations were then reviewed by a committee of previous award winners and judged according to the qualifications set out by the group.

“Mike ranked high in all areas, and the board’s selection committee agreed he was the right choice for REALTOR® of the Year,” said Sue Ruane, executive director of TSBOR. “Mike is very well respected in the real estate community, and I have enjoyed working with him during his term as a TSBOR Director. He’s a tremendous asset to our organization.”

“I couldn’t be prouder of Mike for this well-deserved recognition,” said Kris Vogt, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “He’s a very talented and hard-working professional who has helped our agents so much in their own careers over the years.”

Mike has been the manager of Coldwell Banker’s North Lake Tahoe-Truckee offices since 2007. Prior to that he served as a senior mortgage advisor and in house loan officer for PHH/Coldwell Banker home loans. Before entering real estate Lombardi spent 17 years working in the health care industry, as well as well as five years in consulting for startup companies.
