ApartmentRatings 2019 Top Rated Award and OCA 1% List graphics for StoneGate Apartment Homes in Williamsville, NY

For the 4th consecutive year, StoneGate Apartment Homes has received awards from two online reputation platforms: Top Rated by ApartmentRatings and Elite 1% ORA award with impressive stats. We’ll take a look at both in today’s blog post. 

2019 Elite 1% Properties for Online Reputation by J Turner Research

StoneGate Apartment Homes received an ORA score of 95, #2 in all of New York State, and #98 OVERALL nationwide! So what does that mean? The ORA™ score, based on a scale of 0–100, is an aggregate compilation of an apartment’s ratings across 21+ review sites and ILSs. The national average score is 63.05. The ORA™ score is the multifamily industry’s standard to measure and benchmark a property’s online reputation. Being recognized among the Elite 1% properties in the nation with the best online reputation for 2019 is a much-appreciated accolade.

2019 Top Rated Award Winners 

With 54 reviews* and a 100% recommendation score, it’s easy to see why this is the 4th year StoneGate Apartment Homes has earned this award. Apartment, founded in 2000, is the largest online rating community for rental housing, and is among the top five most-visited apartment hunting sites in the world, and is the largest source for renter reviews of apartment communities. Only about 5% of the total properties listed on the site qualify for an award. To receive the Top Rated Award, properties must fulfill the following criteria: 10+ total reviews, 5+ reviews in 2019, and a 70% or greater overall recommended score. 

Working Together 

We are pleased to be named by both and by J Turner Research Elite as an apartment community with a stellar online reputation. We recognize it takes teamwork to make these awards possible. We are incredibly grateful to our residents for taking time out of their busy lives to acknowledge our efforts online by leaving reviews. Here’s to another great year together.
