Coming Up with the Numbers — How the Rankings Work 

We would like to thank all of our residents, past and present, for making this possible, as both awards were based on Online Reputation. We’ve broken down the criteria for both of them below.  

The Elite 1% ORA™ Power Ranking

J Turner Research uses a statistical model and assigns an Online Reputation Assessment (ORA™) score on a scale of 0-100, which determines the rank of each apartment community in this ranking. StoneGate scored a 93! This is the 6th consecutive year that StoneGate Apartment Homes has received this prestigious honor.

Apartment Ratings is the largest online rating community for rental housing, reaching approximately 30% of apartment hunters nationwide, and is among the Top 5 most-visited apartment hunting sites in the world. Each year the site recognizes the top-rated apartments in the nation using strict standards, and we’re proud to be among the winners.  

The criteria for being recognized as a top property includes: 
  • 10+ total reviews
  • 5+ reviews in 2020
  • A- or higher overall epIQ grade
