Learn More About Brandi

Brandi holds a Master’s degree in Housing and a B.S. in Housing, Interior Design and Resource Management from Virginia Tech.  She began her career in the Washington, DC area at Avalon Bay, and then was hired as a marketing and development consultant with Bravo Strategic Marketing under industry expert Jennifer Nevitt. Next, Brandi became a founding member of YieldStar Technology, a yield-management software for the apartment industry. There she served dual roles as Director of Marketing and Director of Product Content, responsible for training large companies such as AMLI Residential and Camden Property Trust on best practices in pricing and yield management.

In 2002, at age 26, Brandi handed the reigns over to her entrepreneurial spirit and launched Brio Consulting, Inc. Through naming, theme development, landscape + architectural direction, signage, interior styling, photography, print collateral, interactive web experiences, and social media marketing, she works with her team of talented collaborators at The Mktg Dept to manage all key disciplines to develop unified brand strategies.

Brandi’s extensive knowledge of high-barrier markets across Connecticut is further enhanced by her 10 years of experience marketing a large portfolio of A+ through C properties along the eastern seaboard (including seven blocks of mixed use development in Hoboken, NJ). As a result, Brandi has a well-rounded awareness of challenges that owners face. She is adept at working with budgets at any level to help grow revenue and improve bottom-line results. Since her career began in 1998, she’s also consulted in major markets such as Baltimore, Richmond, Charlotte, Charleston, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Nashville, Dallas, and Houston.

Brandi’s joy is giving back time to the students of Virginia Tech, where she teaches several career development classes each semester for the Residential Property Management program.
