Welcome to Brix - a boutique property management firm servicing Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Established by two local real estate agents with 12 combined years of industry experience, the full-service company promises to challenge traditional property management by delivering consistent, measurable, and unparalleled value to real estate investors.
For non-residential owners of single- and multi-family homes, the importance of reliable property management is undeniable. Brix’s founder, Justin Riapos, knows this to be true from experience. In fact, he's a longtime manager himself.
Driven by a shared passion for efficiency, honesty, and all things real estate, the Brix team aims to shift the industry’s perception of property management — one strategically leased residence at a time.
Justin first ventured into real estate in 2011, but his passion for the industry is inherent. Prior gigs in leasing, consultation, and management eventually led the Ohio native to Pittsburgh, where he’s put his entrepreneurial focus to good use. Upon obtaining his Realtor's license at the beginning of 2017, he could easily see the big picture of a management business in his very near future. With his skill set and passion for the industry, Justin's management skills has proven invaluable.
JESSE WIG, PARTNER
Since migrating to Pittsburgh in 2015 Jesse’s wasted no time building his legacy.

Through Brix, Jesse aims to offer like-minded investors the benefits of working with property managers who prioritize clients first.
