As most military members will tell you, one of the most stressful aspects of our careers is the constant moving. I got lucky and found myself in a four year tour down in beautiful South Florida. With the rental market how it currently is, buying a home was something my wife and I put a lot of thought into. We searched and searched and searched for "the perfect home." While we were searching for our dream home, we rented a beautiful home in west Pembroke Pines and we had the pleasure of living a few doors down from Athena. On a walk around the neighborhood, my daughters and I stopped and talked with Athena for a little bit and her warm personality and contagious smile made me 100% sure I wanted her to represent us on our journey to becoming Florida home owners. After setting us up to get emails from MLS, Athena was ALWAYS available to show us places we were interested in. Her expertise in all matters regarding the home buying process was priceless and the way she cared for our wants and needs is something that can't be taught. There were times when we were discouraged with how the search was going, but Athena never gave up hope. Her dedication to us was impressive especially because as I know Athena, she was showing the same dedication to her other clients. I have referred all of my incoming personnel who are planning on living in Broward county her way because I truly feel that she will have their best interest at heart and once they are settled in their new place I can put them to work! Thanks Athena!

Athena was amazing! She was totally hands-on during the staging and very knowlegable about the entire process. I was very nervous at first but after a few minutes, I knew I was in good hands and just followed her lead. It was my first time and I learned a lot. Athena turned a potentially sad occassion into a fun event for me and I am eternally grateful. The pictures belonged in a magazine and I was ready to buy the house all over again! Athena is caring, thoughtful and knowledgable; an expert in her field and highly recommended by me.

If you are looking for someone that has your interest during the sale of your home she is the one. Athena knows the market and how to sale your home and get a bidding war started. The day our house hit the market it crashed the server that was hosting our listing because of the number of people looking at the listing. In three days she sold our house with three offer to choose from.

If you are looking for a true professional in Real Estate, Athena is a Million Dollar Listing Agent.

Athena did an excellent job getting my family and I the home of our dreams! What I loved about her that you don't find elsewhere was that she was always genuinely interested in my family and our overall wellbeing. She made the transition back down to Ft Lauderdale and back with the rest of my family an easy one. I'm grateful for her help!

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.

It is a great joy working with Athena through my property purchase process. Athena is incredibly flexible in terms of time, always able to cater towards her client's schedule. She is also extremely knowledge about the peninsula and south bay neighborhoods, as well as up-to-date market conditions.

She also carefully review all the documents, made sure all the questions are satisfyingly answered during every stage of the process. Overall, her professionalism and warmth makes the entire home purchasing experience very enjoyable and smooth.

Athena's extensive knowledge of the real estate business process and market conditions were invaluable to us during this fast changing market. Athena has been very attentive of our needs.

We had Athena as our buyer’s agent looking in particular in Belmont / San Carlos areas. It was a pleasure working with her. We were new to the peninsula, and her knowledge proofed to be very valuable. From the moment we signed contract with her until the transaction was closed, she referred a great mortgage banker who provided extremely competitive package (fully-underwriter-approved loan qualification, 14-day escrow closing), monitored closely on properties that met our top-priority criterions, obtained critical reports that increased our negotiation power, and was very helpful collecting information to serve our needs. We were able to find our home with our desired features, within comfortable budget, and within the targeted timeframe. We would recommend Athena to those looking for an agent who works proactively for the clients.

I wish to express my sincere praise for the outstanding service provided by Athena Chilicas during my recent home purchase. She understood my needs and quickly pointed me to the properties that fit my profile. As I was re-locating from outside the Bay Area, she went out of her way on numerous occasions to accommodate my challenging logistical and scheduling needs. After the closing, she continued to follow-up and assist me in coordinating various projects related to my new property. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Athena, she is a consummate professional and I will highly recommend her to my friends and colleagues.

Athena was incredibly supportive throughout the entire process of selling our home. She kept us focused and informed, and provided guidance every step of the way. Athena never blinked when we told her how soon we wanted to place our house on the market. With only two weeks to prepare our home for the open house and acceptance of bids; Athena quickly pulled together a list of tasks and a schedule of contractors for us. It was a whirlwind of activity...we had our doubts we could get everything done on time. Athena kept us calm and on track, and offered honest advice and feedback at all times. With her help, our home was ready in time for the open house, and sold quickly. We are so grateful we had Athena by our side. Her warmth, professionalism, and experience made working with her an absolute pleasure...from beginning through close of escrow.

Athena was critical in helping my husband and I buy our dream home. I highly recommend Athena to anyone in the home buying / selling market. She is very knowledgable about the housing market, supportive in process and has creativity solutions. We always felt she acted in our best interest, is honest and extremely hard working. We would not have been able to buy our dream house without Athena.

Moving across the country can be a stressful experience. Having Athena in our corner assisting us to find a place to live in an unknown area was extremely helpful and stress reducing. She is knowledgeable, straightforward and available. Additionally, only meeting me over the phone Athena’s professional demeanor, listening skills and support came through by treating me as if I was a long time client. She was our eyes and ears in finding a place to live. Once arriving in the area Athena met us in person for the first time, which further demonstrated her outstanding professionalism and customer service!
