The NRP Group Named as One of NAA’s Best Places to Work
Nov 2020

CLEVELAND, OH—November 10, 2020—The National Apartment Association (NAA) today announced The NRP Group as a winner of the 2020 NAA Best Places to Work Award, which identifies member organizations that encourage employee engagement and performance and foster collaborative and innovative work environments. The award pays tribute to employees and their hard work, which directly contributes to the success of suppliers, management companies and the rental housing industry as a whole.

“We are incredibly proud of our property management teams for this recognition. They demonstrate a tireless commitment to providing the best service at each community and we are grateful for all of their hard work,” said J. David Heller, CEO at The NRP Group.

Winners were determined based on scores gathered from a Net Promoter Scores (NPS)-based employee satisfaction survey, launched as part of the awards program. Employees themselves determine where their organization ranks, providing employers with valuable, firsthand feedback about their workplace.

“This year has presented so many challenges, but our teams have stayed nimble and focused. It’s an honor to work with so many talented professionals and be recognized with other great leaders in our industry,” said Erick Waller, NRP President of Property Management.

The NRP Group currently manages about 25,000 units in 11 states. In October, The San Antonio News Express named NRP a Top Workplace. In June, the Cleveland Plain Dealer also named NRP a “Top Workplace” and recognized CEO, J. David Heller with the “CEO Leadership Award.”

“Teamwork is more than a slogan here. NRP truly operates with a clear set of core values centered on collaboration and respect for others, and they are guiding principles at our company,” said Phillip Boatwright, Executive Vice President of Property Management.
