Newport Beach, CA, March 20, 2014 --( Three Lyon Communities’ apartment communities have been honored for delivering exceptional customer service to its residents by J Turner Research, a leading marketing research firm exclusively serving the multifamily industry.

The St. Claire team in Santa Maria, latitude33 team in Escondido and gallery421 team in Long Beach received the J Turner Excellence in Customer Service Recognition. The three communities achieved extremely positive average satisfaction scores, all ranking in the top 35 out of 1,200 communities nationwide. gallery421 was ranked 32nd, latitude33 was ranked 24th and St. Claire was ranked 14th across the nation.

“Exceptional customer service has always been at the forefront of our mission,” said Sherri Martin, president of property management for Lyon Communities. “It’s wonderful to be recognized for our forward focus, as we strive to stay ahead of the ever-changing market and the needs of our residents.”

The rankings were based on a random monthly sampling of resident responses to a variety of customer service related questions.

Responses were converted into a unique Turner Apartment Loyalty index score that ranked communities on a scale of 0-10. Communities achieving a Turner Apartment Loyalty index score equal to or greater than 7.5 were recognized as part of an elite ranking of communities for their ability to deliver exceptional customer service to residents.

“At Lyon, we believe that it is our family culture and entrepreneurial spirit that results in successful, enduring relationships with our residents,” Martin said. “We’re honored that three of our communities were awarded this very special recognition and will continue to strive for the J Turner Excellence in Customer Service Recognition across all of our properties.”
