DF Multifamily Communities Rank Among The Nation’s Elite 1% for their Superior Reputation

Newport News, VA — The Online Reputation Assessment (ORA™) Power Ranking, one of the most anticipated measures for property management companies across the nation, released its annual Elite 1% rating for apartment communities based on online reputation.  More than 71,000 properties across all review sites are analyzed with only 977 properties earning the elite status.  Thirteen DF Multifamily communities are in the top one percent with Old Donation Apartments of Virginia Beach, VA cracking the top 50 in the nation with a score of 94.

To be eligible for this ranking, a property had to register a minimum ORA score of 88 and have at least 15 online reviews across various review sites compared to the national average score of 59.7.  DF Multifamily operates in the three of the top five states with the highest share of Elite 1% properties with apartment communities in Virginia, North Carolina and Florida.

“We take our resident reviews very seriously and to be recognized in the Elite 1% is quite an accomplishment” said Tarra Secrest, Director of Marketing & Property Development.  “We appreciate our residents and we are committed to having the best on-site teams in the industry.”
