ATLANTA, February 4, 2022 – Wood Residential further solidified its position as one of the top property managers in the country for outstanding online reputation in the latest Elite 1% ORA™ Power Rankings.  Fourteen properties that the company managed in 2021 received awards from J Turner Research for ranking in the top 1% of all apartment communities in the nation.

Even more impressively, the company had four communities that earned a prestigious place in the Top 50, including two exceptional communities that ranked in the Top 10 – Alta Clara at The Fells (Stoneham, MA) came in at #9 and The Huntley (Atlanta, GA) recorded the second-highest online reputation nationwide.

No other management company in the country had more Top 50 award winners.

Among the company’s 14 winners, half of the properties (7) were ranked in the Top 200 in the nation. Wood Residential was the only management company outside of the NMHC 50 Largest Apartment Managers rankings with seven or more properties in this exclusive Top 200 group.

“The J Turner ORA awards are always a significant focus for our property TEAMS because they enable us to measure how our prospects and residents truly feel about our customer service,” said Steve F. Hallsey, Managing Director for Wood Residential. “As we continue to grow our third-party management portfolio across the country, the happiness of our residents remains at the forefront of our decision making. I want to thank our employees for their commitment to providing outstanding customer service and to our residents for putting their trust in us.”

The Elite 1% ORA™ Power Ranking is an annual ranking based on monthly online reputation research of over 128,000 apartments across multiple review sites and Internet Listing Services (ILSs). The ORA™ score was developed by J Turner and serves as the multifamily industry standard to measure a property’s online reputation.
