About Lauro Arantes
I launched my real estate career in 2003 and was named NY/NJ Rookie of the Year in 2004. I serve clients seeking luxury properties on both sides of the Hudson, and my work with major developers in SoHo, Tribeca and FiDi landed me on The Real Deal NYC’s Top 75 Agents list. My years as a business owner and IT consultant to Fortune 100 companies developed my ability to build trust and lasting relationships with clients by listening to their needs and constructing a plan to achieve their goals. Originally from Brazil, I came to the US via Europe and the greater NYC area instantly became my new home. Motivated by the creative energy of New York, I can’t imagine myself living anywhere else. Architecture and contemporary design inspire me, and I enjoy introducing people to landmarkbuildings that have been converted to spectacular lofts and cutting edge historic new developments from award-winning architects. I frequently have the privilege of assisting international clients relocating to the area, guiding them through their first property purchase, helping them choose the best neighborhood and explaining all aspects of a real estate transaction. Known for my integrity and professionalism, I’m proud that more than 50% of my business are referrals from appreciative clients. My commitment to every client is to make the purchase or sale of their home as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
