I have lived at Barrett Walk for 3 years and I absolutely love it. The office staff is so welcoming and helpful. I have never felt more safe in an apartment complex...ever. It's a small gated community that is always clean and quiet. It's a pleasure to call this place home.

I'm so thankful for Barrett Walk! The staff is truly one of a kind. They were quick to offer help, give tours, answer emails and always did so with a friendly attitude. They answered my many questions and went over and beyond to make me feel at home.

A Morguard Example of Service and Team-Building


We are very lucky to have community manager Erica Rakestraw as part of the Morguard family. Her dedication and positive attitude are recognized by everyone she comes into contact with. She describes her gratitude regarding her career path very eloquently:

“I started in property management as a leasing agent in 2012 here at Barrett Walk. At the time of my interview, I was working as an assistant in a mom and pop bakery in Dallas, GA. While working, I was also attending college at Georgia Highlands, but I had no idea what career path I wanted to pursue. After having my first interview and touring the breathtaking community of Barrett Walk, I knew that this industry was made for me! Almost 5 years later, I am now the Community Manager and a Regional Training Facilitator at the very same location where my journey began. This would never have been possible without the help, support, and encouragement from the staff at Morguard. From the abundant growth opportunities to the new challenges I am faced with daily, the reasons I choose to stay in property management are endless! I am surrounded by an amazing, upbeat, and driven team of team members that I have come to consider family. Each employee strives to provide our residents with exceptional customer service as well as building rapport during every encounter.”

Erica’s team, in addition to our beautiful apartments and impeccable amenities, is why our residents choose to call Barrett Walk home.

Our Barrett Walk Community Identity

In addition to the exemplary customer service that we provide, our residents enjoy the convenient and quaint location of our community, nestled in the heart of Kennesaw. Barrett Walk is conveniently located near I-75, I-575 and Barrett Parkway, so it’s a breeze to get around, and Kennesaw is exploding with new and exciting attractions around every corner.

Located minutes from Town Center Mall, this dynamic community is surrounded by dining, shopping and entertainment like Swift-Cantrell Park and Kennesaw Mountain. The mountain actually has two summits: "Big Kennesaw", where the modern-day parking area and scenic overlook are located, and Little Kennesaw Mountain, where several light hiking trails and nature areas connect the mountains to the rest of the park.

Within a few miles of our community’s doorstep you will find SunTrust Park, the Atlanta Braves’ new stadium, where legendary musician Billy Joel will perform the first live concert on Friday, April 28th, 2017. For baseball action, on Friday, March 31st you can go see the Atlanta Braves versus the New York Yankees exhibition game.
