The Bozzuto Group Increases Online Prospect Engagement with RentCafe


Website visitors view 23% more pages, spend 20% more time on property marketing sites

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Dec. 15, 2016 — Yardi client, The Bozzuto Group, reports increased engagement on its property marketing websites after partnering with Yardi to leverage the RentCafe marketing and leasing platform for property management. Bozzuto is an award-winning property management company that currently manages more than 60,000 apartments and homes.

RENTCafé includes corporate and property marketing websites, complete online leasing with electronic signature, social media integration, classified posting tools and SEO and SEM capabilities.

“We partnered with the RentCafe team to create a custom property website template that supports Bozzuto’s brand and marketing strategy,” said Kelley Shannon, vice president of consumer marketing at Bozzuto. “Our new RentCafe websites have shown an increase in prospect engagement. Now site visitors view 23% more pages and spend 20% more time online with us.”

Along with in-demand content like floor plans and photos, Bozzuto’s RentCafe websites feature enhanced neighborhood information with custom maps, social feeds, blogs and videos that give website visitors insight into each community. Prospects can click to call, schedule a tour or fill out an application and begin the online leasing process from a desktop, tablet or mobile phone.

With the template, Bozzuto’s marketing team can build new websites and convert old ones more quickly. “RentCafe offers a significant savings to Bozzuto’s property owners in terms of both time and money. They are able to get these websites up in a matter of weeks, versus a custom site that takes months to build,” said Terri Dowen, senior vice president of sales for Yardi.

“It saves us time and offers a cost-effective website solution for both new communities and those needing to update their online presence,” continued Shannon. “RentCafe helps us keep up with Bozzuto’s pace of growth. Yardi has been a great partner!”
