Unlocking success with Insights and Reporting

Through Birdeye, Fairlawn Real Estate has been able to carry out actionable improvements through trend-spotting. One example of this is when Fairlawn Real Estate used Insights’ keywords to identify an influx in positive reviews that mentioned community tours with the staff. These reviews were isolated to a particular portfolio so the marketing team reached out and asked the leasing manager, who drove the positive reviews, to conduct a training session and share her expertise with the entire company. This allowed Fairlawn Real estate to foster learning and enhance the touring experience for everyone across the company.

Birdeye Insights and Reports offer a new perspective, enabling Fairlawn Real Estate to examine keywords, feedback, and other prevalent information to commend top-performing leasing teams and apply their methods across the Fairlawn portfolio. This collaborative learning dynamic enhances Fairlawn Real Estate’s overall strength and extends to property performance, providing them with a seamless way to proactively address issues.

Benchmarking: Deciphering competitive advantages

Benchmarking has been another beneficial addition for Fairlawn Real Estate. Through quarterly reports, they gain valuable insights into their competitive ranking that delve into specific ranking categories, such as staff, maintenance, and amenities, equipping them with a nuanced understanding of how they stack up against their competitors.

Fairlawn Real Estate's leasing team capitalizes on this data to highlight amenities and services that set them apart from competitors, promoting value in every interaction. Benchmarking offers a straightforward approach to identifying specific strengths and weaknesses and provides daily snapshots to stay up-to-date in a dynamic and competitive industry.

Armed with this knowledge, Fairlawn Real Estate combines data from Insights and Benchmarking to devise strategic plans that tailor marketing strategies for individual property locations while acknowledging the diverse needs of each target audience.

“Birdeye has significantly improved our approach to improving experiences. This creates a culture of ongoing enhancement, ultimately adding to our overall resilience and success in the industry and our individual markets.”

Maintaining happy residents with Ticketing

Allison typically responds to property reviews, but first gathers insights from the onsite manager before crafting her response. In the past, their communication relied on lengthy email exchanges. Birdeye's Ticketing has reshaped Fairlawn Real Estate's feedback management process, giving them seamless communication and swift resolution.

Ticketing is equipped with efficient automation to make this process effortless. Upon receiving a new review, a ticket is assigned to the property manager so they can contribute comments before it moves to Allison. Fairlawn Real Estate’s collective goal is to complete this entire process within 48 hours, further demonstrating their commitment to fast and effective customer service.

This process ensures real-time perspectives that guide action plans when addressing concerns and positive feedback. Ticketing has accelerated their efforts to promptly update residents on the actions taken to address any issues when needed and reply to happy residents acknowledging the incredible service and amenities their properties provide.
