Launched in 2011, PeakMade has spent a decade helping students and multifamily residents discover communities to call home. In 10 years, they have more than doubled their starting portfolio, currently managing around 80 properties with more than 50,000 students served.
The company has always made it a priority to collect feedback, but in the past, they didn’t have a dedicated process in place for managing and organizing the information they received. They needed to figure out what they wanted to do with it and make positive changes that would improve the way they serve their residents. J Turner’s offerings seemed to have the answers.
At PeakMade, one thing they have always known is that there’s no secret sauce to success in their industry. There is only listening to their customers. They sum up their approach in three words: People Matter Most.
Without feedback—and, most importantly, without a way to understand trends that were driving resident behavior—PeakMade wasn’t able to make adjustments that would improve the lives of their residents, thus leading to a lower rate of renewals and new prospect signings.
What began as a customer insight journey has transformed into a comprehensive method of collecting quality data that allows PeakMade to improve the way they serve residents. They use several J Turner solutions, including Prospect and Resident Surveys, Work Order Surveys, Fall Surveys, and Push Service. Getting various types of feedback is key for them: they realized that the more feedback they got, the easier it became to identify trends.
Understanding their residents and being able to truly hear their feedback has had a tremendous impact on PeakMade’s success. They have seen a 14.6 point increase in their ORA™ score, making for a 24% increase in resident happiness. As a result, one of their properties ranked 8th in the Top 100 Student Properties, a reflection of the hard work they’ve put in to improve the resident experience.
Once a month, the PeakMade team meets with J Turner to analyze properties, go over goals, and make plans to achieve them. They say that Ratings Tracker has been a game changer for them, crediting it for helping raise their ORA™ score. They look forward to continuing to use data to make impactful improvements.
