Renaissance Place and StoneGate Named Elite 1%

We are pleased to announce that for the 7th consecutive year, StoneGate Apartment Homes has earned the Elite 1% ORA award with impressive stats. Renaissance Place has also earned the Elite 1% ORA award for the second time. The ORA award is presented by J Turner Research, an independent market research firm exclusively focused on the multifamily industry.  We would like to thank all of our residents, past and present, for making this possible, as awards were based on Online Reputation.


What exactly does it mean to be a part of the Top 1%? It means that out of over 128,000 apartment communities nationwide, only 1,564 apartments will earn the Elite 1% distinction. More impressively, StoneGate ranked #6 in the whole state of New York. 


Developed by J Turner Research, the ORA® Power Ranking is based on monthly online reputation research of over 128,000 properties’ lifetime reviews across multiple review sites and Internet Listing Services (ILSs). Then using a statistical model, they assign an Online Reputation Assessment (ORA™) score on a scale of 0-100, which determines the rank of each apartment community in this ranking. The national average ORA® Score as of December 2021 was 62.62. StoneGate scored a 95 and Renaissance Place scored a 94!


The Elite 1% ranking is published by an independent trade publication, Multifamily Executive. A property or a management company does not have to be a J Turner client to qualify for this ranking.


“We take immense pride in being recognized as an ORA® Elite 1% property by J Turner Research. It takes consistency and hard work to excel in customer service day in and day out. When residents are happy, it reflects in favorable online reputation. Congratulations to our team and thank you to our residents for expressing their appreciation for our community online!”
