I really enjoyed working with Athena. She is very quick and responsive. Few times she managed to show townhouses in less than 1 hour notice. Athena is very knowledgeable and was always willing to answer any questions. I would highly recommend Athena to anyone looking for a real estate agent. Thank you Athena!

Bought a home in 2014 in South Lakes Dr - Soapstone Dr, Reston, VA 20191.

Athena is a responsive and knowledgable resource. As first time home-buyers, she made our experience a very pleasant one by answering all of our questions in a timely manner and by ensuring that we had all the information that we needed to make a well-informed decision. In addition, Athena recommended various services to us to make our settlement process efficient and thorough. We shopped around a bit for other service-providers and the services that Athena recommended ended up being more reasonable than the competitors. Lastly, in negotiations, Athena will make sure the proceedings are fair for both parties and she will "go to bat" for you if need be.

In summary, Athena is a friendly, responsive, knowledgable, fair, and effective real estate agent and I would highly recommend her services.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Gaithersburg, MD.

I was a first time seller with low expectations on how well selling my townhouse would go. Athena was not only very optimistic with realistic expectations initially, but she kept me sane throughout the entire ordeal. Her knowledge of the area mixed with her confidence made her ideal for letting me know exactly what to expect and how to make the most out of my sale. I was very happy with the results and process, and any bumps that came up she handled on my behalf professionally and promptly.

Sold a home in 2014 in Centre Heights, Centreville, VA 20120.

Athena has been phenomenal in selling my house and helping me buy a new house! She helped me get my house ready to sell by bringing in stagers. She brought in a professional photographer to take beautiful pictures of my house. She priced my house perfectly and sold it in one week. The sale of my house was a new record high for the community. Athena sent me daily updates on properties to buy. She listened to what I said, and was more than willing to show me properties until I found the perfect place for me. Athena is very knowledgable and accessible. Whenever I send her a text or an email, she gets back to me promptly. She gets things done. I would highly recommend her to anyone even thinking about buying or selling a home. Athena has worked with several of my colleagues too, and everyone has been extremely satisfied.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Alexandria, VA.

Athena helped my husband and I purchase our first home in Alexandria, VA and we were so happy we chose to work with her!! Athena is so friendly, welcoming and easy to talk to. She was always genuinely concerned about us and what was in our best interest, which was always my biggest concern when finding a good real estate agent--finding someone who will help you get the best deal possible, and she did.

She's knowledgeable about the market and the home-buying process, which we were not at all. Although the other listing agent tried to make the buying process difficult, she made the entire process feel seamless in our eyes and kept the stress off of us, with the help of her terrific team. She kept us on track with all of our deadlines once we had made an offer, was readily available at all times, and did extra research/bargaining when she thought it was needed and always kept her eye out for things we would have never thought of. For example, there were issues with the HOA inspection, which would have ultimately costed us money upon moving in, but Athena managed to do some digging/research and got us out of those extra fees for unnecessary repairs.

Aside from that, Athena remained in contact with us after we purchased the home and ran into a couple issues. She helped us to get those issues resolved and gave us the guidance we needed. It's nice knowing that if we were to ever need anything or need advice, she is always there for us to contact. She is genuinely concerned with helping her clients and making them happy and we are so grateful for that!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $550K in Fallston, MD.

I would highly recommend Athena to anyone looking for a real estate agent. Athena was my real estate at one of the most difficult times in my life. My husband was deployed to Afghanistan for the year. Athena and I began looking at homes in Northern Virginia where we thought our next duty station would be. A couple months into our search we had to make adjustments, the Army had somewhere different in mind for us. Athena did not skip a beat, we began searching for homes in Maryland and I could not have survived without her! My situation and timing in the purchase of my home had the potential for a lot of stress but Athena was very thorough, very knowledgeable and I could not have asked for a better experience. She always went the extra mile with me and for me.

Bought a home in 2012 in Woodbridge, VA 22195.

Athena is by far the best real estate agent I ever had the privilege of working with. She is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, timely, resourceful, and credible. She was able to anticipate our needs and presented various options to us before we could ask the question. She has impeccable negotiation skills and did a remarkable job representing us with our builder. There wasn't a single decision that I made without her counsel. She is a terrific agent.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $500K in Fairfax, VA.

Athena is extremely competent, incredibly responsive, and very knowledgeble about market climate. She did an absolutely fantastic job at documenting, promoting, and marketing the house she helped me sell. Thanks to her ability, the house went under contract literally within hours of listing and successfully sold for the full asking price. I was truly impressed and incredibly happy wih her performance.
