Renaissance Recognized as Elite 1%

We are pleased to announce that Renaissance Place has 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. 


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. Renaissance Place scored a 94!


    A Satisfied Resident recently gave a 5-Star rating on Google, leaving this review: 


“We have lived a wonderful year here at Renaissance place! The professionalism of the staff was amazing and especially Erika and Roger were always there to help us. Everything was maintained so well and especially I was so grateful for excellent snow patrolling during the heavy snow season of Buffalo. This place is so quiet and safe for kids, and really close to all the marts and shops. Also, great schools and beautiful parks are nearby. My colleagues who have lived here really recommended this place, and I would do the same thing for my friends!! Thank you for giving us wonderful memories living here!”

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.


“Throughout 2021, our team has worked incredibly hard to offer high-quality customer service to our residents. When satisfied residents recognize our efforts online, it all counts towards high ORA® scores. To be named by J Turner Research as a top ORA® apartment in the nation for our stellar online reputation is a great start to the new year. We are grateful to our residents for cheering us online on various review sites.”
