One of Lisa Mulvey-Cozzi’s nominators writes that it’s nearly impossible to buy or sell multifamily investment properties in Hartford County without knowing her name.
Regions Commercial LLC is a full-service CRE brokerage and advisory services company providing commercial and investment real estate services throughout Connecticut. Mulvey-Cozzi oversees a multimillion-dollar sales team whose reach extends to the multifamily investment sales market in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New York.
Information on the Regions Commercial website chronicles her auspicious start. In 1999, three years after graduating cum laude from American University with a bachelor’s degree in human resource management with a concentration in entrepreneurship, she developed and implemented a business plan that launched a startup business north of Boston; two years later, she sold the business, doubling her initial investment.
Her expertise has resulted in Regions’ successful closure of more than $50 million in annual sales transactions. Last year she earned the annual CoStar Power Broker award for Hartford County, acknowledging her successful transactions of more than 500 units in Hartford County alone in 2016, many of which were rapidly under contract shortly after listing. Mulvey-Cozzi continues that winning streak this year.
Mulvey-Cozzi said she takes a detailed approach to analyzing properties, and prioritizes rapid response to clients within 12 hours. A four- or five-person team keeps the wheels turning by covering all commercial aspects.
“She is so often the glue that holds deals together, the facilitator who makes them happen, the executive producer who is able to bring all parties together to a successful conclusion [to] a transaction,” another nominator wrote. The result: better outcomes for not only the transaction participants but for the people who live in the properties with which she’s involved.
Another nomination cites her as a “fantastic mentor,” adding, “she will never miss an email from you, but she will never miss a moment of the life she is building with her husband and two kids, either.”
Mulvey-Cozzi partially credits her success to a supportive husband, who also works full-time. And another saving grace: yoga. She’s faithfully practiced it for 14 years. “I swear by it,” she said. “I try to be balanced and make sure I’m there for the kids.” She also credits her parents for providing help with after-hours property showings.
Mulvey-Cozzi also volunteers, both locally and internationally. She is a board member of the Bridges to Hope volunteer agency, spearheading fundraising efforts to help build a clean-water well in Soroti Town, Uganda..
