March 21, 2012

J Turner Research’s Annual TALi Score Measures & Ranks Resident Satisfaction Scores

HOUSTON, March 21, 2012 – J Turner Research, a leading marketing research firm exclusively serving the multifamily industry, today recognized Bozzuto Management Company’s “Edgewater” community in Philadelphia, Pa. for delivering exceptional customer service to its residents throughout the year. The annual Turner Apartment Loyalty Index (TALi) measures residents’ overall satisfaction level based on a variety of criteria during their stay and ranks the community’s score based on this data. Edgewater achieved the highest TALi ranking of properties surveyed nationwide, and five additional Bozzuto properties ranked in the TALi top 35.

“We are very proud to acknowledge Edgewater as the top performing community with this award from J Turner Research,” said Joseph Batdorf, principal of the company. “Delivering a positive living experience for residents is a challenging and all encompassing objective which directly influences a resident’s satisfaction, renewal intent and likelihood to refer a friend – three key performance indicators directly tied to a community’s ability to deliver exceptional customer service in today’s competitive marketplace.”

Data for the rankings was collected by J Turner Research based on a random monthly sampling of resident responses to a variety of customer service related questions. Participating respondents are given the opportunity to share feedback regarding their interaction with community personnel, willingness to provide a referral to the community and satisfaction with maintenance requests, etc. Responses are converted into a unique TALi score and ranked on a scale of 0-10. Communities achieving a TALi score equal to or greater than 7.5 are recognized as part of an elite ranking of communities for their ability to deliver exceptional customer service to residents throughout the year.

“Bozzuto Management Company is very proud to receive this honor on behalf of “Edgewater” and all of our customer-focused properties and their teams,“ said Julie Smith, President, Bozzuto Management Company. “At Bozzuto, we pride ourselves on providing customers with the highest levels of customer service and working with J Turner Research ensures we have an unbiased method of measuring and improving our communities’ performance. The TALi award is evidence of our constant efforts to solicit feedback from our residents and to continually raise the customer service bar.”
