Get to know me 🤝
My name is Justin Riapos and I’m a real estate professional in Pittsburgh, PA! I have a strong passion for various aspects of real estate as I have a diverse background stemming from property management, residential sales, and real estate investing.
My real estate career started 10 years ago as a Leasing Consultant while still in college. Upon graduating, I jumpstarted my career in property management and found success quickly as I climbed up the corporate ladder through various management roles. Eventually needing to feed my entrepreneurial spirit, I leveraged what I knew and started a full service property management business in Pittsburgh. I ran that company for three years, overseeing 250+ properties and working with 70 different clients.
Despite our firm’s success, I ultimately decided to sell that book of business to another local management firm - staying affiliated with them as a hired consultant. This has allowed me to take a step back from the day-to-day grind of running a property management firm and gave me more time to focus on other endeavors!

Lifespace Real Estate
I’ve been a licensed Agent since 2017 and a team member of Lifespace Real Estate since 2018! Lifespace is a boutique real estate firm in Pittsburgh and I like to think we see real estate differently (in a good way).
Whether you're a first time home buyer, looking to sell your property, or an investor looking for a new deal - I understand the importance of putting my clients first and building genuine relationships. As an Agent, I won’t only leverage my expertise from past experience but I’ll also use my first hand experience as a tool to help maneuver us through the buying and selling process!
This year I’m putting a large emphasis on my real estate book of business as I plan to make this my primary focus and take it to the next level!Lifespace Real Estate
Property Management Consulting
Redefining Property Management
For the past 10 years I’ve been immersed in property management by an array of positions. Starting as a Leasing Consultant, I caught on quick and knew this was an industry I could excel in. Before long, I began working my way up the corporate ladder into different upper management roles. Ultimately, needing to feed my entrepreneurial spirit, I started Brix Management - a boutique style property management firm in Pittsburgh, PA. At Brix, I managed 250+ rental properties for 70 different investors. After selling my book of business this past year, I still felt the urge to leverage my management expertise, which brings me here!
It’s undeniable, property management is a fundamental part of real estate investing. Through my consulting firm, I’m here to help iron out the details and set your business up for success. Whether you’re a property management company looking to fine tune best practices or an agency looking to add property management as a service for your clients - I can help you out. Let’s connect and let me show you how to challenge traditional property management by delivering consistent, measurable, and unparalleled value to real estate owners and investors!
The Riapos Group
I’ve been actively investing in the Pittsburgh market since 2018 and have learned so much along the way. I’ve been involved with numerous projects over the years and am currently working on a project right now which I anticipate to be completed by the Spring of 2021. Over the past few years, I’ve been so involved with other aspects of real estate, I never had enough time to dedicate to my own real estate investments. This year, I started “The Riapos Group” which will be the holding company to my property development business endeavors. My goal is to not only focus more time on this business but to dig deeper and fine tune our systems and processes which will help me scale this business for the future.
My goal this year is to “flip” 2-3 houses by the end of the year.
