Kathy Volpe is a long time resident of Lombard. She is often heard saying . . . "I Love Lombard . . . and so will you." Kathy lives and works in Lombard and is dedicated to Lombard and the surrounding communities. Take a minute here to read about Kathy. In her own words she describes her philosophy, her practices, her growth and progression in the Real Estate Industry

You could call me 'Old School', meaning I still go back to the basic standards of life and work that were respected and cherished - Integrity, upstanding ethics and excellent service are foremost in my business practice. With the world constantly changing - improvements in technology, and changes in practices and customs - good Realtors are consistently redefined. Throughout my career, I have consistently taken steps to keep up with today's constantly changing world.

In 1977 - I launched upon a career that led me to significant professional achievement in the real estate industry. These achievements, combined with my personal dedication to my clientele, continue to cultivate success for myself and my clients.

I am proud of the designations earned - a combination of extensive study and committed practices.
