BirdEye for Kairoi Residential

26 locations, endless tenant feedback, and how BirdEye made sense of it all

Client since: November 2017

Kairoi Residential is a 26-location property management company in the San Antonio area. Kairoi came to BirdEye for help with a few different issues the business was facing.

Between May 2017 to May 2018, Kairoi Residential had a 2.7 average review rating across review sites like Google, Apartments.com, and Facebook. Much of the time, the residents who were leaving reviews were the ones with strongly negative experiences.

"BirdEye is a great product and company. They are always looking to expand and iterate on their platform (a vital thing in today's world). The support we get is incredible."

Kairoi Residential also had a problem staying on top of customer reviews on all sites. The company had 26 locations and 2 employees in marketing. There was simply not enough time for employees to take a look at every single site individually.

Higher Overall Rating

With BirdEye, Kairoi Residential saw a huge improvement in the overall rating. Between May 2018 and May 2019, Kairoi had an average rating of 4.0 across review sites

The more review requests that Kairoi sent out, the more likely they were to get reviews that were more representative of their client base. Since it was so easy to see how many reviews every property was getting, a competitive environment began to take root. Each property started competing to see who could get the most reviews. The end result was more well-rounded customer feedback across the board. 

Standing Ahead of the Competition

Recently, Kairoi has been getting started with 3rd party property management. When trying to attract potential partners, Kairoi needs proof that it can do the job better than any of its competitors.

Luckily, the Competitors tab within the BirdEye dashboard helps to provide Kairoi all the proof it needs. Among other things, this section allows customers to compare their review ratings with competitors. By showing the competitors section to prospective partners, Kairoi can show that they have the highest overall rating of any housing agency in the area.

Easy Monitoring and Response

With BirdEye, Kairoi is able to take a look at all of their different review sites with a single dashboard. This helped to save the time of employees, who no longer had to look at each different review site individually.
