Neighborhood data is available allowing a prospect to identify proximity to local areas and amenities. The site also leverages social media giving prospects insight into life as a resident by integrating community specific blogs, Facebook, Twitter and rating site reviews.
“We are exceptionally proud to be recognized as an industry leader in innovation for our website,” noted Sue Ansel, President and Chief Executive Officer. “This award recognizes our commitment to extraordinary quality and service for our prospects and residents. We were pleased to have a strong partner in Digital Scientists as they helped drive the value of the user experience on our new website. ”
