James & Kristina Tsai
First Time Buyers
Words that describe Athena: Smart, hard working, savvy, knowledgeable, fun, energetic, patient. We can't say enough good things about working with Athena. She knew every area we were looking at, helped us find the right homes and locations, and was easily our biggest asset in our home purchase.
Athena walked us through the home buying process, prepared home tours and even previewed homes for us so that we could concentrate on finding the best home for us with the least amount of effort. She helped us find lenders, contractors, and not only had contacts for anything we needed, but actively used them to help us in our buying process. Even when finding a home and competing was challenging, Athena helped us persevere and win. She helped us write competitive, smart, professional offers that ultimately got us an amazing house at the best price and terms!
Athena will be your friend, real estate mentor, and advocate. She will give you the advice you need to hear and not just what you want to hear. She will be honest with you on what you can expect, and what will be possible in your home search. She will push you to think in multiple directions and to consider options you might not have thought about. She will set you up with lenders, contractors, and anyone else that can help you in your buying process. She will work hard for you to find you a home you will love, and she will find ways to make sure you get it. She will help you write the best offer you can to stand out from the pack. She will be with you every step of the way, right to the end and beyond.
If/when we sell and buy another house, Athena will be our choice. If you are looking for a realtor, and have come here to help you make up your mind, I hope you take the above recommendation with heavy weight. Athena is the REAL DEAL, she will be getting our personal and specific recommendation for any and all friends looking for real estate in the Bay Area.
