Cristian Luput is the founder and CEO of Optimus Realty Inc., a full-service real estate company based in Chicago, specializing in brokering, managing and developing residential properties in the area, with over 15 years of extensive expertise in real estate.
After having successfully completed multiple multi-million dollar real estate partnerships, consolidations, mergers, and acquisitions, Cristian became actively involved in several charitable organizations.
He and his wife are donors for social issues and strongly believe in the power of charity to improve people's lives and change the mentalities and hopes of the less fortunate ones: „It is our moral duty to get involved and act for the future of our communities, in Romania or elsewhere”.
Cristian is also a member of the board of directors at Chicago Summer Opera and treasurer at Opus 16, two organizations focused on empowering and promoting young talents gifted for classical music.
His respect for community values is rooted in his childhood village, Vălenii Șomcutei, in Maramureș, Romania, a treasured place he remembers with high consideration, and where he learned from the elders to be responsible and caring with the next generations, a lesson he passes on to his own children.
Cristian has a Bachelor's degree in Accounting and Business Management at „Babeș-Bolyai” University in Cluj. During the same period, he was a member of the traditional folkloric dance group „Românașul”.
