Elite 1% -- Top 100 Property Award

First, we'll talk about the Elite 1% Award by J Turner Research:

StoneGate's exceptional performance has earned them a spot in the Top 100 for the fourth time. The community previously ranked in the top 100 in 2016, 2017, 2019, and now in 2022. Though, StoneGate has been named in the Elite 1% consecutively since the award's origin in 2015. As mentioned, StoneGate is incredibly proud to have been ranked #23 overall and #1 in New York State in 2022.

StoneGate 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.  StoneGate scored 99

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
