I specialize in buying and selling real estate found in estates/probate in the Phoenix Arizona Metro area. If you have been appointed the Personal Representative of an estate then I can help you sell the real estate you've inherited.

First, let me take a moment to offer my condolences on the passing of your loved one. While I know this can be a very emotionally sensitive period, I also understand you may be facing some serious decisions with which I might be able to assist you. Often times real estate property must be sold in order to pay taxes, pay any outstanding liabilities and to pay the legitimate heirs.

Inheriting a home can be overwhelming, especially if you do not live in the Phoenix area. There are many things to consider such as how to split items up among family, legal aspects, estates taxes, various ways to sell a home and how to prep an old home for sale. 

While I do not know your particular situation, I am prepared to do what is best for you and the estate. As a licensed Realtor in Arizona there are two solutions I can offer you: 1) A quick cash sale or 2) Listing your property for sale.

Quick Cash Sale

 This option is attractive for those in need of settling an estate quickly to satisfy creditors or legitimate heirs. If you find this is your top priority then I can buy your property in its "as-is" condition with no repairs or clean up required. I will pay cash and all your closing costs and close in 30 days or less. There are no fees or real estate commissions paid with this option.

Listing Your Property For Sale

This option is attractive for those interested in getting top dollar for your inherited  property. If you have the flexibility and resources ($) then I can list your property for sale. I will work for you every step of the way, whether you just want the property cleaned up or fully remodeled.

I own dozens of rentals and have completed 100+ fix n flips. My network of contractors/vendors will be an invaluable resource in getting your home ready for sale quickly. Leveraging my network and experience ensures that I can sell your home for the highest possible price and in the shortest period of time.

 Our experience with James Lombardi came at a difficult time in our lives and during some big decisions we needed to make regarding the sale of a home we inherited during probate. James was extremely responsive to our questions, personally supportive to us, very knowledgeable and helped us through this confusing time. We especially appreciated his ability to give very clear answers and information so we could make the right decisions for our own personal situation. Additionally, James treated us with respect. We feel that he helped us make the best deal we could and we very much appreciated his guidance through the steps necessary to sell the inherited property. His integrity, positive attitude and solid work ethic is something we could recommend to anyone, and we would not hesitate to call upon his expertise again.  -  Paul & Barbara Estes from Chandler, AZ

 My experience with James Lombardi was very easy, because of his knowledge and understanding. My mother passed away in Phoenix, and I live in North Carolina, and he was very helpful in selling her home that I inherited through probate. He really helped me a lot because I had never had to do this before. He put in extra time because we had to do everything over the phone. I highly recommend James, because of his treating me with respect, and also going the extra mile to assist me in anything I needed. If I had to do it again I would call James.  -  Richard Branch from Hildebran, NC

 My mother passed away in 2008 and I was still dealing with her home that I inherited, the home I grew up in.  In this market, it was difficult to decide to sell and the home needed a great deal of repair and was costing money every month just to keep it going.  James Lombardi was extremely patient with me and gave me all the time I needed to make a decision. James is very knowledgeable and professional; yet, personable and understanding about the fact that I was dealing with something very emotional and difficult for me to do. I would highly recommend James to anyone who is faced with a decision like this.  -  Lynne Simpson from Glendale, AZ  

 I want to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for your efficiency and professional demeanor.  It has been a pleasure to work with you on this sensitive real estate transaction.  I found you to be kind, fair and respectful. Thank you for delivering on your commitment to close this transaction quickly. – Diana Washington from Tempe, AZ  

 On behalf of myself and my family, I would like to thank Mr. Lombardi for all his help in getting through the probate process.  His knowledge and professionalism made the sale of the estate property easy and manageable.  But more than that, he showed a grace and compassion in dealing with the emotions involved in letting go of memories.  I would certainly use his services again if I found myself in similar circumstances.  Thank you.  -  Marlene Deyoung from Phoenix, AZ
