Tracy SchmidtCustomer Service
Coming to Lombardo Landscaping with many years of office experience in a variety of offices and programs has taught me to adapt quickly while still keeping the Midwest customer service ethic, where yes the customer is my priority. When I interviewed with Matt at Lombardo I could see that the customer experience is important to his organization and that we would be a good fit. Although viewing the finished dream is important I believe how our customer is treated from start to finish is equally as important. I’m excited for the possibilities here at Lombardo Landscaping and thank everyone for the warm welcome.
