Meet The Team
Director of Sales, Operations and Marketing
Lydia, the team's Director of Sales, Operations and Marketing has been in the real estate industry since graduating from Randolph Macon College with a degree in Business and Economics. Her favorite quote is “The number one reason people don’t hit their goals is because they set them with the results in mind instead of who they want to be and the habits they want to build” (Kristan Cole).
She strives to live a life colored by stubborn gladness and seeks to bring energy and a can-do attitude to everything she does. When she’s at work you can find her getting excited about hitting big goals, collaboration, and building habits that work with human nature (not against it).
As her job title implies, her favorite part of this industry is the opportunity for variety in the day-to-day of running a real estate business. Having held almost every administrative position on various real estate teams, she leverages that track record to create an above and beyond customer experience for our clients. As a certified real estate coach & presenter, she is passionate about helping the agents on our team hit their goals and build lives and businesses that align with their values. She stays up to date with real estate trends and team/brokerage best practices and is always looking for ways to improve and elevate the team's performance.
She grew up in Doswell, VA as the oldest of 4 and would say that she had a classic, barefoot, country childhood. To this day, she loves being outside - especially at Byrd Park/Swan Lake which is her favorite spot in the city. Lydia currently resides in Salisbury in a fixer-upper with her husband, Drew and her kids Eli (10) Aubrey (8) and Bodhie who joined the crew in June of 2023.
Lydia and Drew met in the real estate industry and have enjoyed sharing that interest and knowledge as they build their own real estate portfolio. Currently, they own multiple long term rentals and 1 airbnb which are primarily in the Maymont area! After purchasing her first home at the age of 22, she has bought, sold and renovated quite a few since then. She's passionate about building wealth and passive income this way and empowering her peers to do the same. The current real estate project is renovating their primary and it's been fun to pick finishes and design floor plans to reflect their style and family needs!
In her free time, you can find her reading about 50-60 books a year (favorite book of all time is Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert), watercoloring, practicing yoga (she completed her teacher training in 2020), playing kickball with her kiddos, working alongside her husband on their fixer-upper, playing piano, trying out a new recipe in the kitchen (and crossing her finger that her kids will eat it), chasing our pet chickens that escaped in our backyard or attending Hope Church!

Alexandria is an expert in all areas of central Virginia thanks to her previous job as a beer rep all over town. She provides a wide knowledge of restaurants and fun events around town.
Alexandria graduated from VCU’s School of Mass Communications and concentrate in PR, minoring in business. She took only three years to graduate while working full time and rising in the ranks of her job as a sales representative, eventually becoming a brand manager.
When asked why she pursued realty, Alexandria said, “I realized I knew a ton about a niche that I really didn’t feel was very important or valuable, so I thought about industries I could pursue that would be more impactful for others.”
Her favorite part of the realty process is sharing the joy of homeownership with others and simplifying the process, making peoples’ dream easier to realize.
Some of her favorite neighborhoods include Manchester, Woodland Heights and Forest Hill. Alexandria is fascinated by the growth of these areas. “Richmond, in general,” she says, “is growing and I love seeing the ways it’s adapting and pushing outward.”
In her free time, Alexandria likes to rock climb, hike, hang out with her dog, or start a new home DIY with her husband.

Patrick Hiltz, Business Manager and licensed Realtor comes to Richmond from South Carolina after studying at Union Theological Seminary (now Union Presbyterian Seminary) and after receiving his BA from Mary Washington College. Patrick specializes in being highly organized as much of his work involves creating structured systems and doing communication triage to ensure each transaction goes as smoothly as possible. But most importantly Patrick is punishingly good at puns.
Dave and Patrick have been good friends for nearly 16 years, and Patrick was happy to help him steer the ship by taking over some of administrative side of the business. Working with the Dave Seibert Real Estate Group led Patrick to become a licensed Realtor in March of 2015 thus opening up a new realm of vocational possibilities.
After working for the Virginia Department of Taxation and then switching over to real estate, Patrick says that it is so much more pleasant to be in a world where people appreciate your work and where his efforts genuinely makes their lives better.
Patrick loves being in Richmond, and has been here for 19 years. He loves the neighborhoods of Bellevue, Ginter Park, and Rosedale. All three are very close to where he lived in his first couple of years in Richmond and they just feel quintessential to his early days exploring around town, taking walks and looking at the charming homes. He loved that they are also dotted with great little restaurants, coffee shops, and more.
In his free-time, Patrick likes to read, work on genealogy research, play board games and cards with friends, attend wine tastings, stay current with Marvel Comics, and listen to podcasts galore.
Patrick, his wife Lila, and daughter Charlotte happily reside in the Northside of Richmond, and Lila is a school counselor at an elementary school in Henrico.

Working briefly as an educator, and then as a pastor in Richmond for the past 7 years, Erin is now excited to support people through their major life decisions as a realtor. “I became a realtor to help people find great homes that they’ll love for years.”
What you see is what you get with Erin. She is unapologetically herself, the same person all the time, and it’s a quality that people really appreciate about her.
“Richmond is such an amazing, vibrant city,” and it tops her “Favorite Place to Live” list. She holds a special affinity for Church Hill, the neighborhood she first lived in. Steeped in history, community, and beautiful neighborhoods, it’s hard not to love. “I also really like Northside…the big, old houses with lots of yard space reminds me of my New England upbringing.”
When Erin isn’t busy #grinding, she enjoys eating, drinking, and being merry. Her happy place is a good restaurant with good people. She’s also a founding member of a band called Urban Doxology. They travel across the country doing music and it’s a really special part of her life.
Andrew Smith, Real Estate Consultant and Account Manager, was born and raised in the Glen Allen where he attended Deep Run High School. Andrew then went on to receive a Bachelor's
degree from Virginia Tech in Business Information Technology, and from there, a Real Estate Consultant with Dave Seibert Real Estate Group.
Andrew became a licensed agent and began working with Dave Seibert Real Estate Group beginning in 2013, but has been interested in home styles, architecture, and design trends from a young age. Andrew really enjoyed watching TV shows about renovations and felt working with Dave provided an opportunity to see it up close.
Andrew loves meeting a wide spectrum of new people, and guiding them through the journey of home-ownership. He also enjoys helping friends build wealth through real estate.
As a Richmond native, he loves how diverse Richmond's neighborhoods are and finds himself lucky to explore all of these neighborhoods with his clients. He does have a special affinity for Glen Allen, The Fan, Oregon Hill, Scott's Addition, and Forest Hill/South of the James as those have all been called ‘home’ for him at one point in time.

Vito Bussa was born and raised in Southside, Richmond, but it’s his Italian heritage where he finds his inspiration. His grandparents and parents journey from Italy instilled in him strong work-ethic and values.
Vito graduated from Christopher Newport University (Go Captains!) in 2015 and dove right into his career, working for SunTrust Mortgage at their headquarters in Innsbrook. He spent 2 years in their closing department before making his next move to CoStar, a commercial real estate and analytic company he spent 4.5 years at.
Because of Vito’s professional background in both residential and commercial property transactions, he offers a unique perspective and a strong knowledge base in both areas. Paired with his attention to detail, organizational skills, and his familiarity with the fast pace environment that real estate demands, he is a great asset to the Dave Seibert Real Estate Group.
Vito knows how stressful the process of buying and selling can be and how complicated it can be at times, especially for someone that isn’t familiar with real estate transactions by trait. He is an expert in the client servicing aspect, taking a lot of the complexity out of the transaction for clients to ensure a smooth process from start to finish.
His favorite Richmond neighborhoods? Church Hill and Northside. “I love the feel of both neighborhoods. I have family in New York and Church Hill gives me a very Brooklyn-like vibe!”
When he’s not grinding for his clients, he likes to spend his time outdoors and being active — hiking, golfing, visiting breweries and attending live music are some of his favorite ways to spend his free time.
Born and raised outside of Boston, Massachusetts, Bobby made his way to Virginia when attending Radford University where he graduated in 2005. There, he met his wife Melinda and after 15 years of living over 700 miles from her Clifton Forge roots, ultimately decided to move to Richmond to feel closer to them. They liked that Richmond checked all the boxes by offering all the culture, food, and music of a city while still being a drivable distance to family when necessary.
After working a corporate job for a large company for 10 years, Bobby made the leap to the world of real estate and has never looked back. He was quickly able to make the transition to one of the top producing agents in his market.
Bobby knows that real estate transactions can be stressful. Problems can arise that others may not have seen coming. He has the experience and knowledge to be able to navigate and identify most of these issues prior to them being a sticking point in the transaction. And when they do come up, he is able to communicate clearly with all parties involved and find a solution.
These skills mitigate the amount of stress his clients feel, leaving them to manage only what they can control.
Building relationships while helping a family or investor is what he loves most about real estate. He cares for each client and transaction as if they are his own.
When he’s not working, you’ll find him spending time with his family, traveling, and especially enjoying national parks. He loves coaching his kids Reagan and Reid in basketball and baseball.
Spending time with family.
