Christiano Sampaio

Principal Broker • DRE: 01412928

Born into a Real Estate family and exposed to the in and outs of Real Estate from an early age, Christiano was raised in Brazil where he attended University and studied Business. In 1995, he moved to Los Angeles and started working in the Sport Supplement industry, eventually opening a store, which resulted in starting a supplement company catering to martial arts athletes. During this experience, he learned many valuable skills in marketing, sales, and entrepreneurship. Then, in 2003, Christiano entered into Real Estate, which was a natural fit for him, and decided to sell his Supplement business to apply all his talent and heart into his newfound passion. After working for the top Real Estate firms in Los Angeles, he started his own boutique agency called Loftway in 2007. Since then, Loftway has grown into a successful brokerage and a recognizable brand in the Los Angeles Real Estate world.

‟Christiano is a consummate professional and a pleasure to do business with. We have been his client in some shape or form (ie, renter, landlord, seller) for over 9 years. Most recently, he helped us list and sell a property in DTLA in spite of a challenging situation where our HOA was tied up in litigation with the builder. Through it all, Christ iano was considerate and attentive, providing us with regular updates and sound advice. His team was also very helpful in tending to small errands and repairs relating to the property, which saved us both time and headache. If you need help with your LA real estate matters, Christiano is your man. Highly recommend.” Read More ▾

‟Christiano really knows the market and is intimately familiar with DTLA's buildings and their history. His estimates on what units were worth and what they would eventually go for were spot on. This expertise helped me to determine which units offered the right value. I am not the easiest client and I am not a first time home buyer. I had very narrow parameters of buildings that I wanted to be in, layouts, types of appliances, lightning, ceiling heights, closets, fixtures, floors, etc. Christiano took the time to learn about I cared about and what I was looking for in a unit, understood my non negotiables and never pushed me to settle on a unit that was close enough. Finding a unit in downtown sometimes seemed harder than finding your soulmate, but Christiano worked with me for a long time to make sure that I found my perfect match. Even once I found the perfect match, he did an awesome job negotiating the deal and making sure that I was on top of all the deadlines. He never made feel like I was wasting his time. I'd give him five out of five stars.” Read More ▾

‟Christiano was wonderful to work with! He was very knowledgeable and communicative with us throughout a process that could have been otherwise stressful. He was patient with all of our questions and did a great job of advising us from start to finish. Will definitely contact him again when buying or selling a property. ”

‟Christiano is a delight to work with. He's extremely professional, knows the market very well and he even went out of his way a couple of times to meet me at the unit for repairs and key handovers. He is THE guy to go to for rentals & sales in downtown, but I know he can do wonders for anyone anywhere in L.A. Highly recommend him! ”

Laura S Steele

Buyer
‟Christiano has helped my husband and I with our real estate needs for years. First it was in leasing a beautiful loft in downtown LA from it's owner. We spent two years there and were very happy with the service and professionalism of Christiano's management services- issues were resolved quickly and painlessly and best of all the paperwork was all done electronically. When my husband and I had finally saved enough for a down payment on our first home, we knew who to call to help us find it. Christiano helped us identify our priorities and focus on narrowing our search to just the right types of properties within our budget. No endless tours of units that just didn't fit the bill- we only had to look at a few places. He was able to show us a few pocket listings and without pressuring us allowed us to wait for the right place to come on the market. Luckily for us, it was a unit for which he also represented the seller, so we were first in line to see it and Christiano was kind enough to arrange access for us despite the fact that he was out of town on vacation (it was a day or two before Christmas!). We knew right away it was what we wanted. From there we were able to place an offer on the property- all while working remotely/electronically- and work through all the logistics of closing escrow. Christiano expertly guided us through the process with our lender, the inspector, and appraisers. We've been in our home for a year now and we love it. The time will soon come where my husband and I will want to buy a second property and we look forward to relying on Christiano's expertise in guiding us through a new market/neighborhood/property type in LA. We will also definitely use Loftway to manage the rental of our loft. We highly recommend him for his professionalism, taste in architecture, and honesty.” Read More ▾

‟Christiano was great in selling our loft in downtown Los Angeles. We were notified of a job relocation out-of-state and needed to quickly sell our property. Christiano made it extremely easy and continually kept us updated on the progress even with us 1500 miles away. Not a day went by without tours going through our loft and I greatly appreci ated the regular updates and the ease of getting in contact with him. Every time I had a question I could count on him taking my call and spending time to make sure I was satisfied with the response; I never felt hurried or rushed to end the call. Our loft was sold in a very timely manner for a price we were all happy with. I would definitely recommend Christiano to sell or rent your place!” Read More ▾

‟We decided to work with Loftway to sell our downtown LA loft because they seemed professional and have a good sales record for the area. We were not disappointed. Christiano and his team were friendly and professional from start to finish. We were very impressed that he listed our loft on Monday and had an offer for us - at asking price - on Wedn esday. He was clearly working on our behalf from the moment we first spoke, and continued to work to give us the best experience possible right up to the last moment of our transaction.

‟I've had the pleasure to work with Christiano four times with my now former condo from leasings to actual sale. My brother has worked with him as well. We wouldn't be repeat customers without reason. He knows his market well and is a professional. He is thorough and responsive and is quick to get back to you with docs, comparables, follows up s, etc. He is a good communicator and is willing to help with things to make the process smoother like e-docs, final inspection, make/get duplicate keys, minor fixes, etc. If your market is DTLA especially, he's your man, no doubt. He has gotten my condo leased and sold quickly, sometimes within a few days. Recommend!” Read More ▾
