We’re entering the St. Louis market at a great time – we’re able to buy land at today’s prices and in turn offer an affordable price to buyers.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) May 08, 2011
Lombardo Homes, named one of the nation’s Top 100 by Builders Magazine, is pleased to announce their expansion into the St. Louis market. The Michigan-based home builder has identified the area as a strong opportunity, where the stable market and conservative population base makes an ideal fit for the family-owned and operated company.
The prestigious home-builder’s lifestyle-focused neighborhoods and award-winning floorplans will be offered in six to eight new developments in St. Louis and St. Charles counties. These developments will mark an $80 million investment in the community, supporting more than 100 local jobs. Lombardo Homes projects over $12 million in new homes will be built in the first year. Lombardo Homes currently offices in Winghaven, leasing 2,500 square feet in space.
"Lombardo Homes has been a fixture in Michigan for more than 50 years, building a reputation on integrity and respect; we intend to translate that reputation locally with our commitment to quality craftsmanship, superior design and exceptional value," says Lombardo Homes’ CEO, Anthony Lombardo.
Mike Van Pamel will be leading the expansion into the local market as partner and President, St. Louis Division. Elected in 2009 to the Executive Builder Top 100 Division Presidents, Van Pamel has managed more than 5,000 homes, $5 Billion dollars in revenue, and better than $150 million in profit in three different markets.
"We’re entering the St. Louis market at a great time – we’re able to buy land at today’s prices and in turn offer an affordable price to buyers," says Van Pamel. "And as we don’t require financing we’re in a strong position to be able to actively pursue additional land opportunities."
The family-owned and operated Lombardo Homes offers a variety of home styles that appeal to a diverse group of buyers, taking into account the unique needs of each buyer through a specialized discovery process – providing each buyer with a truly customized experience.
Lombardo Homes offers unmatched affordability and innovative solutions to today’s challenging housing market, allowing more buyers to experience the excitement of purchasing a new home. These solutions include a guaranteed leasing agreement on your existing home if you are unable to sell and the Trade-In-Trade-Up program allowing buyers to trade-in their existing, qualified manufactured home towards the purchase of a new Lombardo Home.
