Sometimes in multifamily, building one cohesive brand means building a thousand smaller ones. For Greystar, each of its communities is a brick in the foundation of the overall company’s story. In this episode of Top Marketers, Scott Berka, senior managing director of brand and customer experience, talks about how the Greystar Family of Brands came to be.

In his current role, Berka heads up consumer and property brand strategy for Greystar as well as its global portfolio of brands. He also partners with operations and technology teams to provide strategic oversight for customer experience as well as oversees the Greystar website and social media presence.

Berka has been with Greystar since 2019. During his tenure, the company has developed an initiative that it hopes will turn the company into a common renter-household name. In a conversation with Multi-Housing News Associate Editor, Jordana Rothberg, Berka explains why and how the vision came to be.
