2021 Power 25 Real Estate: Lisa Cozzi

Commercial real estate tends to be a male-dominated industry but that hasn’t stopped Lisa Cozzi from being a rainmaker in the multifamily market.

Cozzi is the managing director of multifamily investments at Berkshire Hathaway and she’s been brokering investment properties since 2003, overseeing a multimillion-dollar sales team responsible for market areas in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Her expertise is in investment sales analysis, property management and development, and she’s averaged $50 million in annual sales transactions in some years. In the past 12 months she has been involved in several major Hartford multifamily property deals including one 153-unit property that sold for $12 million and another 103-unit property that traded for $8.5 million.

She also recently listed for sale a 505-unit apartment portfolio for $45 million.

Business, she said, has benefited from a very active multifamily investment market.

“The Greater Hartford market has been steadily appreciating, with unprecedented per unit prices being attained,” she recently told HBJ. “The majority of the investors are from out of state and after acquisition they are infusing capital to further enhance the quality of the properties. Interest rates and the future taxes will directly impact the values we will see in the coming year.”

Cozzi has also had a leadership role in the industry, having previously served on the Greater Hartford Association of Realtors Commercial board.

In 2017 she won the Woman of Fire Award, which honors female leaders in the financial services, insurance and real estate industry.
