Hillary and her team have been a pleasure to work with, from the entire application process to selecting a unit. It's been a great experience. They made the process a breeze.

You want to live here! Everything about moving to Artesia Apartments has been great so far and I’m so excited to be in my new home, I love it!


By Misty Rose Woodford, Aug 23, 2018 from Facebook

We just moved to Artesia and couldn’t be happier. Our apartment is beautiful and comfortable. The staff has been incredible. Hillary, Amber, and Brittany are all extremely professional and have made our move very pleasant. They have all been informative and attentive. I couldn’t have asked for better people to deal with. The maintenance staff is efficient and very professional as well. We look forward to our stay here.

I currently work for Mercedes Benz of Covington, I recently moved here from Austin Texas to work for the Baranco group. I looked at several different apartments and Artesia was by far the most beautiful! I also have to share that my experience with the staff Was a huge part of my decision especially coming from a family that’s in the real estate business. Jessie was very professional and had such a great personality and attitude and went above and beyond and ultimately that’s why I chose Artesia! For anyone moving to the Covington area or living here and needing a 1,2 or3 bedroom apartment, I highly recommend Artesia “1st Lake”. I also want to recognize Britney and Hillary who does an excellent job of managing the property and I can’t leave out Gage, The maintenance coordinator! Y’all have such a great team and I wanted to recognize all of you and thank you for making Artesia a great place to live! -Blake Betts

When I first walked in to the Sapphire unit back in September, I knew this was going to be the next place I called home. But it wasn't just the luxury apartment that drew me here... it was the people in the office, and the way they interacted with the residents. From the Office Manager (Brittni), to the Leasing Consultant (Jessie), and also the Maintenance Tech (Gage) they have all been truly spectacular in every way, shape, and form. If you're planning to make a move on the Northshore, this is where you want to be. The location, the people, and the property itself fit together in perfect harmony.

Spectacular!
