River Gate J. Turner Best Reputation Award

Posted by:

River Gate was selected as one of the top student housing communities in reputation management in the United States by JTurner Research. This award was well deserved and the team continues to work diligently to provide the best resident life experience. Reputation management is one of the three pillars of why someone chooses a community to call home. Homestead continues to make the National list year after year. In 2017, Homestead U was the number 2 management company in the industry. This is a tough task but our teams continue to take their reviews seriously. A few tips on how to drive positive reviews include adding a call to action in your email signature.

“Have feedback? Leave us a review on Google.” Adding a simple call to action like this in your default email signature can generate a decent amount of reviews on its own. Think about how many emails you send each month. Adding a link to your signature can be the easiest way to get a boost in your review count. Another effective method is educating your residents. Either have a printout available at your front desk or even consider creating a page or blog post on your website with instructions on how to leave a Google review. For many people, the barrier between them leaving a review or not is simply they have no idea how to do it.

Leaders Coming Together

The 5th annual 2019 CEO Summit kicked off last week in Columbus, OH. Managers from all across the country gathered for a 4-day summit and built bonds with fellow co-workers, received in-depth Entrata training and heard from vision leaders like VP of Operations, Jennifer Cooper. The summit wasn’t all business. Managers got to relieve some tension by throwing axes at Dueling Axes in downtown Columbus. It was a great bonding experience and an eye-opener for some to see how well accounting can throw an ax. Note: Make sure to get your receipts in on time. It was another successful summit and we are happy to have such a strong group of leaders. It should be an exciting 2019!!
