From Summer Interns to Leading Customer Care

As summer interns in 2019, Riley and Izzy knocked it out of the so-called park supporting our team with diverse and important tasks – writing, photo archiving, administrative tasks, data collection and entry, compliance, and project coordination.

So much so that when they graduated, we jumped on the opportunity to bring them onto our team full-time and tasked them with helping establish Cohere’s customer care service. Residents can and do call or email our customer care team to get questions answered, report community concerns, resolve account issues and everything in between.

As a company, we are committed to working in partnership with residents and as such, we are committed to providing exceptional customer care.

Month-over-month, customer satisfaction is reported at 88%. With more than 60 daily interactions (and growing) between our team and residents, we are proud that 75% of these interactions are resolved with “one-touch”, and that 60% are resolved within 24 hours or less. In fact, the median time from a concern in to resolution out is 1.2 hours.

Even better, we pride ourselves on empowering our team to go above and beyond. After sharing a conversation with Izzy, Riley, or another member of our customer care team, you just might receive a handwritten note acknowledging your recent birthday, son’s graduation, or your first home. Or you just might receive a call or an email with a detailed list of clubs and groups in your community to help you get connected since the passing of your husband.
