Joe Lombardi specializes in dental real estate and practice brokerage for established professionals and start-ups. His distinct expertise addresses the value created from both – a practice’s real estate and business operations. He provides his clients with a systematic approach to starting-up, acquiring, disposing or transitioning their practice. Beginning broadly with market research and demographic studies, he also adds precision to finding the right opportunity and negotiating the transaction. This serves for both real estate leases or purchases and practice transitions.
Since graduating from New York University in 2005 with a BS in Real Estate, Joe has covered a lot of ground in the industry and has seen the business from many angles. Starting in finance as a CMBS analyst, Joe went on to become a commercial property acquisition specialist and managed a 1.2 million square foot retail, shopping center, medical office and commercial land portfolio for a prominent New Jersey developer. Thereafter, Joe was the sole leasing representative for a national medical office building owner. Having been responsible for lease procurement and management of a 1.6 million square foot multi-state portfolio, he was thoroughly engaged in the real estate strategies and operations of many different healthcare providers throughout the country. Most recently, Joe was the founder of Metropolitan Healthcare Properties, a full service real estate company specializing in the sale, leasing, investment and management of medical facilities in the New York City metropolitan area.
Joe is a licensed real estate broker in New Jersey and salesperson in New York. He has earned a Certified Leasing Specialist (CLS) designation from the International Council of Shopping Centers and has served and advised on municipal planning boards.
