"I'm a native Austinite and even have experience in apartment management, but when it came time to move again, I had no idea what was new on the market, where the good deals were, or who would work with my specific challenge.
After one call with Kannika at Apartments Express, she knew exactly where we would want to live, and she nailed it on the first shot - got a great deal in a really gorgeous apartment that will be our home for four or five years.
Additionally, as a journalist who has had a national real estate column for many years, I know tons of real estate professionals, but Apartments Express is who I refer to - there is none better, stop looking."

"I will start this by saying...I NEVER write reviews. But Kannika is AMAZING!!! A lifesaver! THE BEST! I just want everyone to know how much she helped me. I asked she delivered. No empty promises, she just listened to everything I had already been through and thought she could help. I can tell this is something she genuinely enjoys doing. She found a place for my daughter and I in minutes, I was approved by the end of the day. I recommend anyone looking for a place to reach out to her. I am so grateful."
"Kannika is very helpful and amazing at what she does! I have reached out to her twice in the past 3 years. Loved the properties she has shown me. Only reason for leaving the first place after 3 years was I needed a bigger flooplan. Both times were a breeze. I was approved same day both times. She is very knowledgeable about what properties have exactly what you are looking for and who will work with your current situation. Would recommend her to anyone looking for an apartment. 5 out of 5 stars! Will continue to use her for apt locating in the future. Thanks Kannika!!"
These are old reviews before starting my own apartment locating company, Apartments Express.
"She was very helpful and nice. She helped us find exactly what we were looking for." - weiss27md
KANNIKA JOHNSON IS GRRRRRRREAT! – KANNIKA WAS EXCELLENT TO WORK WITH!!!
"KANNIKA WAS EXCELLENT TO WORK WITH!!! I HAD JUST MOVED BACK TO AUSTIN,TX AFTER BEING AWAY FOR 15 YEARS. WHEN I BEGAN LOOKING FOR APARTMENTS, I KEPT FINDING HIGH PRICED APARTMENTS WITH VERY POOR STANDARDS. I FOUND ONE I THOUGHT WAS GOOD AT -HUNTER'S RIDGE APARTMENTS- (THIS LOCATION IS VERY UNDERSTAFFED AND MY UNIT WAS A ROACH MOTEL). AFTER THE BAD EXPERIENCE I FOUND KANNIKA AT APARTMENTS NOW AND WOW!! IN THE SAME DAY I SET UP AN APPOINTMENT, WENT TO THE STORE LOCATION, FILLED OUT SOME PAPERWORK AND SHE FOUND ME 3 VERY NICE APARTMENTS WITHIN MY PRICE RANGE. ABOUT AN HOUR LATER I WAS SIGNING MY LEASE PAPERS AND WILL BE MOVING INTO MY LOVELY APARTMENT ON SEPT.22ND. SHE IS PROFESSIONAL, NEAT, HONEST, AND KIND. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A NICE APARTMENT, GO TO KANNIKA!!!! THANKS AGAIN. HOPI F. (DESIGNER)" - HOPI
Kannika - what a lovely locator!
"Kannika was so great to work with. I was moving from California to Austin and was totally unfamiliar with the area. I was so lucky to find Kannika to help me find an apartment! She was so nice and friendly, and she obviously knows a lot about the area. We visited several apartments in one day, and what was so great was that she was completely up front about the different places. She told me about the pros AND cons of each. She was willing to work with my needs (and wants) and in the end I found a great apartment that I love! If you want someone honest, friendly, and willing to work around your needs, definitely talk to Kannika!" - gburns21
Kannika Johnson - Fast service
"Due to circumstances, I was not able to visit Austin prior to my move-in which was before the end of this month. With that being said, everything had to be done online. Kannika was very helpful and worked fast. She advised me to apply asap because of scarce availability for apartments around UT campus. I got approved within the same day of contacting to her. Thank you Kannika. Thank you Apartments Now - will definitely recommend!" - dandyrandy352
Kannika - I needed to move ASAP
"I needed to move asap - it was my fault to wait this late to look for an apartment. Kannika was able to take me in right away. Though I needed an asap move in, I had several requirements that must be met. Kannika took her time looking through her inventory until she found what would work out best for me. Then we went to check out the apartment in person. All this happened within 3 hours! I'm glad I have such a lovely lady help me find an apartment. I will surely use Kannika again." - cerealkiller7211
Kannika, credit issue expert for real!
"My husband and I just relocated from CA and have recently gone through a foreclosure. We had applied at an apartment complex with a help of another locator - but we got turned down. Luckily, we saw Kannika's ads on Craigslist and read plenty of good reviews on her! As she claimed on her ads, she truly knows the market and the apartments in Austin really well - she is truly a credit issue expert! WE were surprised that the options she presented us were NICE - way nicer than the place that had declined us! We have been at this apartment for a couple of month and LOVE IT! If there were 10 stars, she would have definitely deserved all those! And on top of everything Kannika was such a sweet girl to work with!" - Bonita4real
"It is hard to find people today with great customer service skills. Kannika is exceptional and you should be very proud to have someone so dedicated on your team! I will defintly keep Kannika in mind for anyone I know looking for an apartment. I told her exactly what I was looking for and she found it. She knew exactly where to take me and she can find the perfect place for anyone. Thank you to your company and to Kannika for all your hardwork! Best Regards, Beckie Austin Tx" - Beckiegarza
Kannika - The Best Locator Yet!!!
"I love what Kannika found for me. It was perfect and fit within my budget. Thanks a bunch! Due to my schedule I do not have the time to drive around, stop at every apartment and put down deposit. Kannika made it so painless that it seemed just too easy. We met at her office. From the get-go, she was very friendly and sweet. After listening to my list of 'demands', she showed me several options and picked out the best ones based on my list. After seeing the first option, I told her that our search could end here. We found what I wanted!! I definitely will recommend Kannika to anyone I know!" - crsm7221
Kannika Johnson - TRULY AMAZING!
"If you need a knowledgeable, friendly, not creepy locator, Kannika is your girl! She knew exactly what apartments will wow me based on a list of my requirements! Totally impressed with her professionalism! I can't wait to move to Austin! 78704, here I come! Thanks Kannika for making my transition so easy!!!!" - newbie78704
Kannika Johnson is AWESOME!
"It was great working with Kannika. I first called someone from another apartment locating company and felt uneasy. So I then ran across Kannika's name and saw that she had good reviews. When I spoke with Kannika I felt a lot better because she was very honest and really thought of every option possible to get my family and I into a nice place. Kannika will tell you your options when you have bad credit, bankruptcy, foreclosure etc. Any situation. Thanks to Kannika we are closer to our jobs and in a place that is nice, quiet and affordable." - acamilleaw
Terrific locator dor sure! Kannika Johnson
"I just got approved today!! All thanks to Kannika! The place was very nice and clean even though a little older. But with my price range and low credit, I can't expect a luxury apartment. IAt the end of the day, I am just happy to not having to move into a hole in a wall somewhere on the east side. As for my experience with Kannika, I will DEFINITELY recommend any of my friends if they are looking for an aprtment!! She was delightful, sweet and fun. The most important part though, she really knew the apartment market inside and out!" - bigredtx
Kannika Johnson was excellent!
"Kannika is the 4th locator I contacted. Thank god for citysearch, I found many great reviews about her. Due to my foreclosure situation, many locators I had spoken to weren't to excited about helping me, but not Kannika! She listened to all my needs and didn't disappoint when we finally met up. I LOVE all of the options she found for me and couldn't be happier. But the most important thing was my application was accepted! If you are between locators, try her out. She is great and very knowledgeable!" - mest512
Great experience -- Kannika Johnson is amazing!!
"I relocated to Austin recently and didn't know the area at all. I had tried to search for an apartment on my own and was frustrated and almost ready to give up. I happened upon Apartments Now on Craig's List and Kannika emailed and called me within an hour of my initial inquiry. I had felt very alone and overwhelmed with the process but she sat down with me and carefully went through all of my requirements and actually took the time to get to know me. She was extremely knowledgeable about the different areas and apartments and steered me in the right direction. Before it was over, I felt like I was shopping with my best friend. I could trust her judgment and enjoyed her advice and company. Even when I was pretty sure I knew which apartment I wanted, she spent a whole extra day continuing to review places with me until I felt like I had seen enough places. She consistently made sure that all my key questions were asked. She even continued to follow up with me after the process was over to make sure that everything went smoothly. I truly walked away with a friend after looking for an apartment locator. Ask for her - she's awesome!" - sharwa
"If you are relocating to Austin, you NEED to contact Kannika for her locating assistance! I have never been to Austin and absolutely had no idea where to begin! From the very first moment, Kannika was very friendly and patient. I told her the kind of area I'd like to be in and the type of apartment I was looking for. Within a second, she came up with several choices. Then she showed me pictures, floor plans and locations that were very appealing to my taste! (I was honestly sold on spot!!) Even before seeing these apartments in person, I knew I would have a hard time choosing. All in all, I'm totally impressed with her service and how much she knows about the apartment market in Austin. If I knew 100 people that are moving to Austin, I would refer all of them to her!!!!" - austinprincess85
Kannika Johnson is the BEST
"I was referred to Kannika through a friend and thank goodness for both of them! She listened to my needs and gave me great advice on where to live. My new apartment is more than I could've hoped for at a GREAT price. If you're looking for an apartment and don't have the time or knowledge to do it on your own, don't wait....call Kannika now!" - KMR123456
Kannika Johnson- Best Apartment Locator!!!
"Kannika is awesome, friendly, helpful, patient, and knowledgable. I went into the office thinking I wouldnt have many options due to my bad credit but she showed plenty and was very knowledgable of the properties. I applied at a property that I 100% thought I might get approved for and less than 30 minutes after leaving the complex I got a call saying I was approved!!!! Thats the quickest ever, she saved me so much time and money and showed me the apartments that I needed to be looking at. THANK YOU KANNIKA! You are the best!!" - afoster9386
Kannika Johnson is nothing short of amazing!!
"Today I met up with Kannika Johnson, first off she is very friendly and professional, and on day one she took me to an apt site which is very beautiful, and on that very same day I was approved for an apt!!! Needless to say Im still getting over the shock, but Kannika is/was amazing to say the least and she is verry knowleable, I will definately recommend anyone to her, trust me, choose Kannika, she is very helpful and professional and friendly. Kannika I'd give you 10 stars, unfortunately citysearch only allow 5!! Thank you so much Kannika you are the BEST!!!!" - prdragon43
Absolutely BEST - Kannika Johnson
"I was working with another locator and was told that there were only two apartments that will work with me because of my low credit. My range was $850 for 1/1! All she found for me was these 2 mediocre apartments?! Then I came across Kannika's ad and saw a bunch of good reviews on her. Yes, these are all true! She knows the apartments and the market really well. I told her what I wanted and she delivered! She gave not one, NOT TWO, but several choices for me to choose from. The best part of all was the apartment approving my application! I'm so impressed with how informative she was that the least I can do is to leave her a positive review!" - young512
Kannika Johnson is great!
"I found Kannika because she works with foreclosure's and credit issues. Like many others have stated I was in a position where I needed an apartment that would work with my situation and she made me feel reassured that I could find a good apartment (in a good school district) for me and my daughter. I wasn't 100% sure on my move date, but Kannika was very patient and extremely helpful. I can honestly say that I would not have been able to find something on my own and with everything I wanted without her help!" - amberella1979
Your 1st choice should be Kannika Johnson!
"Before reaching out to Kannika, my roommate and I decided to try and apply for an apartment on our own despite our situation (broken lease and first time renter). We were turned down by an apartment community where the neighborhood and quality was subpar, so we decided to contact Kannika for some help. She was able to see us at short notice and was able to get us into a beautiful newer apartment community. We were even able to get all the amenities that we desired in an apartment. She definitly proved to us it was possible to get what you want, even with less than perfect credit!" - Kgreen11
Kannika Johnson is an angel!
"Kannika is like a blessing in disguise. After having to give up our home due to a foreclosure, my family and I were anxious and clueless about finding an apartment -having to say goodbye to our beloved home was not an easy thing to do-, we were afraid of having to move into a questionable neighborhood because of our credit. Not knowing whether our kids could still go to a decent school was my wife's main concern. We saw Kannika's advertisement and she claimed to be a foreclosure expert. With many good reviews to reinforce the statement, we gave her a try. What could I say? She was a blessing in disguise. Not only was she able to find us a very nice apartment townhome that can work with us, my kids are able to go to another great schools (besides the one they previously attended), yet still be close enough to their friends. My wife can't be more elated! Kannika was the best thing that happened to us in the middle of this mess! If you are like many other unfortunate Americans whose homes are being foreclosed on, don't be discouraged by her young look. She is professional and definitely a foreclosure expert! To make you feel better, read all the reviews about her here (which we did) to see why she comes highly recommended. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!" - cj490
"Impressive service! If you are looking for an apartment, I definitely recommend you to call Kannika. I was impressed with her professionalism and all the options she gave me. It was a little bit hard trying to schedule an appointment due to her packed schedule (but as good as she is, I'm sure she didn't have many slots available). Nevertheless, she squeezed me in between her other clients. I thought she would give me a rush job. But NO! She was there 100% for me and made sure that I was able to find what I was looking for. Again, very impressive service! Highly recommended!" - 360maniac
KANNIKA JOHNSON KNOWS HER STUFF!
"KANNIKA MADE APARTMENT HUNTING LOOK SO EASY! BUT I KNOW IT IS NOT BECAUSE I SPENT MY WHOLE SATURDAY LOOKING AND STILL DIDN'T FIND ANYTHING THAT CAUGHT MY ATTENTION. THANK GOD FOR KANNIKA! I TOLD HER WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR, THE FLOORPLAN I WANTED, THE SPACE I NEEDED, AND THE PRICE POINT I DIDN'T WANT TO GO OVER. AND VOILA, WITHIN A FEW MINUTES SHE GOT THE LIST READY! WE WENT OVER DIFFERENT OPTIONS AND LOOKED AT ABOUT 4 APARTMENT COMPLEXES. KANNIKA TOLD ME THAT THE 1 OPTION WAS THE BEST PLACE FOR ME. I DIDN'T WANT TO BELIEVE HER AND WANTED TO SEE ALL OF THE PLACES I HAD PICKED OUT. FUNNY ENOUGH AS IF SHE KNEW ME (I GUESS SHE KNEW WHAT I WANTED!), I WENT BACK TO THE 1ST OPTION! NOW I CAN MY WEEKEND BY THE LAKE INSTEAD OF LOOKING FOR AN APARTMENT! :D" - cyborg1978
