PLK Communities Recognized as Top 100 Property Management Company in the Country


At PLK Communities, we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional living experiences to our residents across our extensive portfolio of properties. We are thrilled to announce that our commitment to excellence has been acknowledged once again in the latest biannual Apartment Ratings / SatisFacts EpIQ Index, where PLK Communities has secured its position as one of the top Property Management Companies in the country.

The EpIQ Index, short for Experience & Performance Intelligence Quotient, serves as a pivotal benchmarking tool within the multifamily industry. Powered by verified data sourced from ApartmentRatings and SatisFacts, the EpIQ Index offers a comprehensive overview of resident experiences and community performances over a rolling 365-day period. It stands as a testament to our relentless pursuit of excellence and our unwavering dedication to enhancing the lives of our residents.

Understanding the EpIQ Index

The EpIQ Index encapsulates four primary categories, each offering unique insights into community dynamics and resident satisfaction levels:

  1. Renter Ratings: This category reflects the average ratings derived from renter reviews and surveys. It provides valuable insights into the overall satisfaction levels of our residents and highlights areas where we excel and areas where we can further improve.

  2. Review Count: Measuring the number of reviews per unit in comparison to other communities, the Review Count category signifies our residents' engagement and willingness to share their experiences. It underscores the importance of fostering open communication channels and actively seeking feedback from our residents.

  3. Mgr. Review Engagement: The percentage of reviews with manager responses is a crucial indicator of our commitment to resident satisfaction. By engaging with resident feedback in a timely and meaningful manner, we demonstrate our dedication to addressing concerns and fostering a sense of community.

  4. Mgr. Review Reply Time: Prompt responsiveness is key to building trust and rapport with our residents. The average manager response time compared to other communities reflects our commitment to prioritizing resident inquiries and ensuring swift resolution of issues.

Leveraging Insights for Continuous Improvement

At PLK Communities, we recognize that the EpIQ Index is more than just a performance metric—it is a catalyst for continuous improvement and strategic decision-making. By harnessing the insights provided by the EpIQ Index, we empower ourselves to identify trends, pinpoint areas for enhancement, and implement targeted strategies to elevate resident satisfaction and community performance.

Every day presents an opportunity to enhance the resident experience and drive positive change within our communities. Through proactive engagement, transparent communication, and a steadfast commitment to excellence, we strive to set new benchmarks in property management and exceed the expectations of our residents and stakeholders.
