Reading these reviews and having lived at Arista for a year and a half, there certainly seems to be something fishy going on. My career has brought me to live in five different cities over the last ten years, and I always stayed in apartments. Arista was by far the worst experience. These reviews even mention the tile floors everywhere as if it's a positive. It's most definitely a negative.

For starters, the tiles aren't laid correctly, so if you walk around your place barefoot you're bound to get a quick jab in the foot from one of the raised corners. More importantly on the tile though is the fact that there is tile EVERYWHERE, meaning all floors of all apartments. Can you guess what that means for sound insulation? It means there isn't any. And while we're on the issue of noise, what kind of management team tells another tenant that it would be okay for them to use a full drum set in an apartment complex? The kind at Arista, that's what kind.

Next comes the issue of maintenance. I see in these reviews people raving about the maintenance at Arista which is totally baffling to me. After several written requests to have my air filter changed over several months, I asked where they got their air filters since I was planning on just buying one myself and it's a non-standard size. They wouldn't tell me. Also on the maintenance side, there were a couple pieces of loose wood left over from the construction on the roof over my door that I asked about getting removed every month when I paid my rent. After a year and a half, it never got taken care of. That wood is still there a year later, which is just a lawsuit waiting to happen when it falls on someone. Took them three months to clean out on clogged dryer vent which is most certainly a fire hazard. When I first moved in, I had to get them to come install a door stop in the door jamb of my outside storage room because otherwise you could open it even when it was locked. Pest control is a joke. Your kitchen ceiling light will get filled with crickets, and if you're gone on a vacation be prepared to come back and vacuum up all the dead crickets and beetles in your place.

Now on to how they run the place. The owner of the place, Bill Davis, is notorious for letting his Texarkana properties go Section 8 which means HUD housing assistance. They also do some very sketchy business tactics. They tried to hold a large portion of my security deposit back when I moved out as a "cleaning fee" which has a couple major things wrong with it. One, I cleaned the place thoroughly before I left, as verified by Arista's own cleaning personnel. And two, holding back security deposits for cleaning expenses is not legal in Texas. Rent is supposed to cover those sorts of standard maintenance issues. Security deposits are for covering liability against major repairs like leaving a hole in the drywall or breaking a washing machine. I had to print out the Texas Housing Code and highlight the parts clarifying how much they would owe me if I ended up having to take it to the court system (it's a lot) just to get my measly 300 bucks back.

100% keep away from this place. They look nice from afar, but once you get in them you see how poor they really are.

I read these reviews and have to agree with these folks. I live at Arista Apartment Homes, Texarkana, Texas. I live in one of the 2 bedroom lofts. This apartment has some unique design features. My first floor is the master bedroom/bath and a closet the size of Texas, the huge living area, breakfast room, kitchen and full size utility room. The upstairs has a large bedroom, bathroom and an open loft area that overlooks the downstairs living area. My apartment is very nice, granite counters in the kitchen and both baths, tile floors everywhere except the bedroom. I've never had a problem with anything at Arista Apartments. It's conveniently located to Richmond Road / I-30 where all the great shopping and restaurants are located. I allow the maintenance crew to have access to do any repairs (changing the air filter, etc.) and have had no problems. They are great. The management folks are helpful (they accept my UPS deliveries and give a courtesy call). I would recommend Arista to anyone looking for large upscale apartments in Texarkana.

I've lived in Dallas and am now in Little Rock. My job requires travel, lots of it. I move about every 1 1/2 years as my territory changes. I chose Arista Apartment Homes on Arista Boulevard in Texarkana, Texas because it was new, had some upscale features the other apartment places did not have. I never had a problem at Arista. I previewed and selected my apartment and was approved within 15 minutes. The security deposit was reasonable; I enjoyed the pool and the fitness center. I never had any problems with the repair guys or with the office folks. If I ever had to move back to Texarkana again, I'd choose Arista Apartments. Hands down, best deal in Texarkana, best features and best floor plan.

Well, I read this rating service and was surprised. I think I lived here while a couple of these folks lived at Arista. My time there was great. The apartments are almost new, granite was beautiful, and my 2 bedroom layout was great. The breakfast / dining area was large (even my round table was not too big). I enjoyed the pool. Location was great, very close to I30 and all the shopping/movies, etc. I'd go back to Arista. Everything was good while I was there. No problems at all.

Hey, I had a call earlier this week about Arista Apartment Homes. A friend is looking for an apartment in Texarkana. He's moving back here from Dallas and is used to upgraded features. I told him about my experience with Arista Apartment Homes. He then tells me that there was a bad rating on ratetexarkana.com. I reviewed this site. I am here to tell you that my experience was great. I had no bad experiences. I enjoyed the pool and the cabana and grilling area. I met several really nice folks at the apartments. I had no problems with the office staff and was pleased with the way their maintenance man and woman cared about my only need which was a leaking faucet in my bathroom. I worked nights a lot while I lived at Arista and never had any issue with noise. These apartments are about 2 years old and evidently built with insulation in mind. My utilities were low every month. I would come back to Arista Apartment Homes in Texarkana in a heart beat.

I was searching ratings on realtors in Texarkana and ran across ratetexarkana.com. I saw he rating for Arista Apartment Homes and one for Arista. I lived in the Arista Apartments in 2013. The contractor I worked for relocated me at about the same time that my lease was expiring. I left my apartment at Arista in much the same condition as I rented it, which was superb. I had a great experience with management and with the maintenance guys. I did not have any repairs or anything that went wrong in the apartment (they are nearly brand new). The maintenance guys came by frequently and changed the air filter (which is necessary in Northeast Texas). They came on time, and were quick about their work. I enjoyed my time at Arista. The apartments are superbly insulated and you can't beat the upgraded features of granite countertops, huge closets and my balcony was great. If I were to move back into an apartment now that I'm back in Texarkana (my hometown), I'd choose Arista - great service, great prices and location is super.

The biggest problem, in which I have first hand knowledge, is security related. A resident allegedly broke into at least 4 apartments--and continues to live there, and to my knowledge, no attempt has been made to evict that person, and probably will never be. Locks were supposed to be changed, but to my knowledge, they have not been. There is poor lighting in parts of the complex, especially the parking lot. It is ,my opinion that there are better places to reside, no maw how nice the complex looks on the outside. Taking matters to the person in authority over it all will do you NO GOOD, so save yourself the effort. The parking lots are empty for a reason.
