Renaissance Place Apartments – Elite 1% Apartment Community by J Turner Research

Renaissance Place Apartments, a premier apartment community, has recently been recognized for the exceptional customer service it provides to its residents. The community received two awards in January 2023:

1) Elite 1% Apartment Community, nationwide for online reputation by J Turner Research
2) Top 100 Management Company Award (BMW Management Company, LLC) by Apartment Ratings & SatisFacts

Elite 1% Award
J Turner Research is a market research firm that specializes in the multifamily industry. They evaluate the performance of apartment communities based on resident feedback, and the Elite 1% award is given to the top-performing communities in the industry for online reputation. Renaissance Place has been named in the Elite 1% three times since 2018, which is a huge honor.

Renaissance Place ranked among the Elite 1% properties in the nation with the best online reputation for 2022 by J Turner Research, the leading market research firm exclusively serving the multifamily industry. Of the 132,000 plus properties J Turner monitors, 1,984 properties made the top 1% in the ninth annual Elite 1% ORA™ Power Ranking, published by Multifamily Executive (MFE). These properties have provided a stellar resident experience to earn a first-class online reputation in 2022.  

Developed by J Turner Research, the ORA® Power Ranking is based on monthly online reputation research of over 132,000 properties’ lifetime reviews across multiple review sites and Internet Listing Services (ILSs). Based on a statistical model, J Turner assigns an independent Online Reputation Assessment Score (ORA®) to each property on a scale of 0-100. The ORA® Score determines a property’s rank in the Elite 1% ranking. The national average ORA® Score as of December 2022 was 62.88.  Renaissance scored 94

To be eligible for the 2022 Elite 1% ranking, a property had to register a minimum ORA® Score of 94 as of December 2022.  For properties with the same ORA®score, the property with the higher number of reviews ranked higher.  

J Turner Research developed the ORA® Score to simplify how online reputation is measured, and it serves as the multifamily industry standard to measure a property’s online reputation. Each month, MFE publishes a ranking of properties and management companies based on their ORA® scores. A property or a management company does not have to be a J Turner Research client to qualify for this ranking. To learn more about ORA®, please visit
