Christiano listed my condo at 108 W 2nd street (Higgins Lofts). His advice around pricing, preparation for sale, marketing, etc. were all on-point and specifically met my objectives. Christiano proactively communicated throughout the entire listing process (he sent a progress report every Monday morning) and all of the resources he engaged were terrific. The entire sale process was concluded within my timeline and we hit the exact target number I had going into the process. I HIGHLY recommend Christiano for anyone who is doing business in downtown LA. He is a first rate professional.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started looking into selling my loft in this market. When I talked with Christiano I was impressed with his professionalism and honesty. He was very upfront, telling me exactly what to expect and meeting each and every one of those expectations. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell a property in downtown - he and his team at Loftway took great care of me throughout the sale. This was the easiest real estate sale that I've ever been involved in.

Christiano Sampaio is hands down the best agent I've ever had the pleasure of doing business with. I've bought and sold with him, and multiple leases. He is honest, hardworking, keeps calm under pressure, polite, responsible, diligent, patient, caring and really knows the market. Thank you for all of your great work Christiano!!!

Christiano was extremely helpful in getting me an all cash offer, above ask, and 20 day close. It was better than I expected. He also helped me get my home to be move in ready by taking care of inspections and maintenance issues. Highly recommend Christiano.

Christiano was a pleasure to work with. He managed renting our loft for a year and then sold it in just a few weeks at top price. His knowledge of the downtown market and years of experience made the process simple and easy. We were impressed with the professional photos and the marketing of our loft. He handled all the details which was a relief and worry free. Working with Chris made for a successful outcome.

Christiano helped sell my loft. While I essentially brought the buyer in (by a fluke), his skill in handling the ins and outs of the actual transaction were very effective and helped both sides negotiate the transaction smoothly.
Now I'm working with him on a purchase, and I feel very confident that this process will continue on in the same way as my sale.
His skill and professionalism are top-notch, and I highly recommend working with him.
Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2014 in Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA 90046.
Alert, pleasant, professional, energetic, smart, polite
Market edthe property mainly on line on his good, appealing web-site..
His advice, even in turning down a couple of prospects who did not seem to be qualified was very helpful.
It would be ccurate to say that action was net necessarily in his best interests, but certainly was in mine.
So all in all I can give Chris an excellent recommendation.

Christiano is cool, calm, and collected. He is knowledgeable and VERY responsive to emails, texts, and phone calls. He was always available when we needed him, and made it a point to take us out looking at potential properties during times that were convenient to us. Highly recommend him!

Chris was fantastic when it came to selling our condo. He knows the market very well and, importantly, has a great photographer and marketing materials. Our condo quickly went into escrow and then fell out, due purely to a problem with the buyer. Chris doubled down his efforts to get it sold again, never asked us to lower our listing price, and in fact, sold our condo for more the second time than he did the first.

Christiano handled every aspect of our sale. We do not live in the area, so Christiano took on everything including repairs and moving. We sold our loft at the price Christiano promised in a reasonable amount of time.
