Headshot-Samantha Damato

Samantha Damato is with Long & Foster Real Estate Inc. She made her transition to real estate in 2012, after working on a presidential campaign. She was seeking a new career path that connected her with her community and applied her love of the DC region. Becoming a part of the DC-area real estate community, and specifically GCAAR, has helped Samantha meet and surpass those career wants and flourish. 

After becoming a REALTOR®, Samantha joined the GCAAR Community Service Committee and has been an active member since 2014. Samantha was vice chair of the committee in 2017 and chair in 2018; that year, Samantha helped the committee meet and surpass its fundraising goal of $20,000. In 2017, Samantha was the Rookie of the Year for GCAAR, the same year she had her first child. This year, Samantha and her family are eagerly anticipating the arrival of baby number two in October.   

Samantha has steadily built a successful business from scratch and actively mentors new agents in her Woodley Park office. Samantha’s business foundations rely heavily on knowledge, education, integrity, client well-being, community and positive relationships with other agents—all attributes she brings with her to the Board of Directors.
