Dallas, TX (PRWEB) June 20, 2012
Ellis Partners in Management Solutions recently announced its partnership with Renter’s Voice – the next evolution ratings and reviews site designed specifically for the property management companies in the multifamily industry. The Renter’s Voice – unlike similar sites that often contain biased or one-sided information – offers objective and transparent data collected from a variety of sources.
Reviews are obtained from Independent Evaluators (mystery shoppers), resident survey respondents, and online renters who are required to register to use the site, and are all subject to a third party verification process to ensure integrity of the information prior to posting. Renter's Voice easily provides the widest range of perspective and the most in-depth view into each community, which makes it extremely attractive to the online apartment renter.
Ellis has joined with Apartment Finder to provide online listings for 13,000 apartment communities across the US to give visitors to the site a wide selection of properties to view, consider, and contact about their new apartment home.
Ellis’ alliance with Renter’s Voice allows for exchange of shopping report and resident survey data between the two companies and third party resources, which in turn springboards seamlessly into a valuable online marketing tool for the property management company. The Renter’s Voice levels the playing field in contrast to traditional online ratings and reviews sites, by offering varied perspectives on the customer experience and giving property management companies a voice in the process.
Joanna Ellis, President and CEO of Ellis, Partners in Management Solutions and co-owner of Renter's Voice, remarked, "We are thrilled to be working with Apartment Finder on the Renter’s Voice site. Apartment Finder provides a great service to the online apartment renter and has been essential in the success of the Renter’s Voice site launch. We anticipate great success with consumers giving authentic feedback about their apartment living experiences on the new review website.”
Marcia Bollinger, President of Apartment Finder, says "ApartmentFinder.com sees an advantage to a content partnership with Renter's Voice to give consumers a place to get credible reviews on apartment communities. We make it our business to deliver essential information to apartment shoppers and give them the tools they need to connect to the right apartment home. Consumers today want to access various content sources to find more information; this is yet another way for Apartment Finder to help renters make a decision where to live.”
Ellis’ Apartment Mystery Shopping program and Resident Survey program, in conjunction with Renter’s Voice, allow property management companies to turn traditionally operational based tools into effective marketing tools. To find out more about how Renter’s Voice can benefit you, please contact us.
