You know, I would love to tell you about all of the good things here, and there are lots. However, the new management here is horrible! My wife and I have lived here since Nov 2014. We live in their largest 2 bedroom unit on the ground floor. We have had two occurrences now of water coming through the foundation, which then causes the floor adhesive to come up through the seams of the floor! It is also now causing the carpet in one of the bedrooms to be damp and musty. When this first occurred they displaced us for over a week while they "fixed the problem". They only replaced the flooring, never fixed the foundation. So, about a year later the problem returns with the rainy season and due to my wife being laid up due to surgery we could not be displaced again or move right away so we had to deal with it. The manager, Jessica, agreed to let us out of our lease early with no penalty but now that we can move and found a place, she will not honor that agreement! They want to charge us a lease termination fee of $1078! Our lease expires Feb 15th! It is essentially the same price as staying! I emailed their Regional Manager, Kelli, and she has ignored my message for two days now. I am moving out.....will have to fight them in court I guess. RENT HERE AT YOUR OWN RISK........IF YOU HAVE AN ISSUE, YOU ARE SCREWED!
I love the floor plans and how clean the community looks overall. I have never had any issues with the management or maintenance group and they have all been very friendly. The only downside to this community is that ther is no really close take out that delivers except for pizza. Hopefully this changes soon!
Lived here for 3 years now and never had a problem. Neighborhood is quiet and the landscaping always looks great. Apartment is very nice with lots of features. Never seen the cops called out here like some people state. Did have a friend on the first floor facing the woods get his apartment robbed while the complex was still under construction. That seemed like a very isolated incident and really only happened since the complex was still mostly empty.
Artisan is a gorgeous, lovely, serene place to live and escape from the craziness of the world. I moved to NC from NY and did a TON of research, made two trips down prior to moving and saw literally dozens of apartments. Everything was "nice" and some were pretty but in a crappy location, while others were right in the hustle and bustle but the amenities weren't great and I was feeling pretty defeated and tired, but had one last place to look... Artisan. I almost didn't go because I figured they were all the same, but I am SO glad I did! As soon as I turned into the entrance and drove down the curving road, lined with trees and looking like something out of a Jane Austin novel, I felt instantly relaxed and taken by the beauty of the grounds. When I pulled into the complex and was greeted by the ski loft-esq looking architecture, I actually said "wow" out loud to myself and was instantly in love. The heart flutters only increased as I stepped foot into the state of the art, dare I say "leasing office" as it looked more like a resort, main lobby. The staff was kind, gracious, patient, and overall fantastic. I took a tour with leasing agent, Stacey, and she instantly made me feel at home and like all of my previous home-finding stresses were a thing of the past. We walked into the apartment and I knew... I could barely wait to leave so I could just start the paperwork. The apartments are gorgeous, the grounds beautiful, the pool jumps off of the pages of a better homes and gardens magazines and quite frankly, well it just doesn't get much better than this. The prices are higher than average, but that is for good reason, this place is so much better than the average apartment. It is perfect for a young couple or single professional. If you can afford it, you won't regret it. It is 3.5 miles from Brier creek, a quick 5 minute trip to the airport, and conveniently off of rt 70. You are close to everything but feel tucked away in a little oasis... plus there are super cool residents, like me! ha! It's awesome. check it out.
Nice apartments and great management.
