"After moving from the east coast, Athena found the perfect home for me in Denver! We looked off and on for 2 years in Denver, Boulder and the surrounding area. She was beyond patient. Athena is knowledgeable about the business and the market, she is enthusiastic and one of the hardest working people I know. She also has the keen eye of a designer/builder + a great personality so looking at houses with her is fun!! I love my new house and I could not be happier with Athena’s service throughout the process! I highly recommend her!"
“Working with Athena was one of the best experiences I've ever had, hands down. Every time there was a problem, she had a slew of intros to a last-minute lawyer, electrician, roofer, gardener, and photoshop editor, all of which seemed to drop everything in order to help us meet our deadlines. She even offered to pay for some of the items that were frankly not her responsibility, including some extra electrical work, additional gardening to make the exterior shine, and a rent-back fee to the tenants. She is capable, connected, tireless, and really good at what she does. Her team is amazing and I even ended up hiring her copywriter to help me with copy for some listings in Mexico. She was that good! In closing, I would highly recommend Athena and her team and I will be working with her on future projects. They are a cut above the rest. Period.”
"This is the second time I've had the pleasure of working with Athena. Athena and her team did an outstanding job managing the sale of my home. They were kind, informative, and stellar at their jobs. Not only were they were able to quickly find me the right buyer at the right price, they managed every step of the process without me having to set foot in the state. I couldn't be happier with my decision to use Athena and her team and would highly recommend their services to anyone buying or selling a home."
“Working with Athena to purchase our first home was the best decision my husband and I made in the home-buying process. Not only is Athena a skilled and knowledgeable REALTOR® who advocates for the best deal for her clients, she is also a source of positive energy and encouragement. Athena helped us navigate a quickly changing and confusing housing market to find an amazing deal on a property that fit our budget and our future vision! She was a wonderful communicator throughout the process and went the extra mile to follow up on post-transaction items for us. We also had the best time working with her from showings, to inspection, to closing! If you're looking for someone to be in your corner throughout the entire process, Athena is the REALTOR® for you. Thank you, Athena!”
"Athena is the best agent in Denver. She was so knowledgeable about the Colorado neighborhoods and history, and about the real estate market itself. Her process is dialed in and clear from the beginning and she is always prompt at responding and answering questions, or finding someone to answer the questions that she isn't 100% sure about. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. The Compass Concierge program is also a unique experience to someone selling and looking to make updates to increase sale value and Athena's help with this program is impeccable."
"Athena did a tremendous job helping us sell my late, father-in-law's condo. She was very helpful with all of the intricacies of dealing with a condo that was located in a very regulated senior community and was spot on with her knowledge of the housing market. Working with Athena helped take some of the weight off of our shoulder's in an already emotionally difficult time."
"Above and beyond the best real estate agent I have ever seen. No joke. You do not meet many people, in any industry or walk of life, that have the intelligence, empathy, compassion, and creativity to provide an incredible experience at every step of the way. Buying your first home is of course a very big deal, and she understands the right cadence and approach to make sure we felt as supported and comfortable as possible. Athena went above and beyond to find us the right lenders and work with us through every step of the process. There are only five stars on this rating system, but I would give her 12 stars if I could. Athena + team + compass technology = as good as it gets!"
"Athena is one of the best REALTORS® we have worked with. We were out of state buyers, first time buying in CO, and Athena showed all the ropes. We had a very small window to see properties when we visited and she made sure to lay the groundwork so we could literally hit the ground running. She was organized, thoughtful, honest, and knowledgeable about every neighborhood we asked about. Not only that, but 90 days post-purchase, she’s continued to be just as thoughtful, and has gone above and beyond to step in and help with construction projects while we are away. She’s done way more than any average REALTOR®, and I would absolutely work with her again and recommend her to any CO friends."
"Athena is absolutely incredible!! We’ve been lucky to have her represent us as both a buyer and seller agent and she DOES NOT MISS. With our recent sale, her incredible marketing got us multiple offers the first weekend. When our first buyer fell through she had us back under contract within 24 hours and it was smooth sailing through close. We will absolutely continue working with Athena for all our real estate needs."
"As first time home buyers, Athena made the process so much easier than we could have imagined. She was able to answer every question immediately, assuaged all of our concerns and went to bat for us to ensure that everything was perfect before we moved in… Even reaching out to all of her contacts to help us find the right refrigerator! We couldn’t have been more pleased with our experience and look forward to working with her again in the future. We always felt like her priority, no matter how busy she was. We not only gained a new home and an excellent REALTOR® through this experience, but also a new friend. We couldn’t recommend anyone more!"
