Closing Coordinator Athena Torres was raised and educated in Temple City and has always lived within the County of Los Angeles. She began her professional career working in the customer service department of an internationally renowned global food and beverage company, where she worked diligently for 6 years to become a much-valued member of the team, recognized for her exceptional customer interaction skills. She transitioned into the world of real estate at the suggestion of a close family friend.
Athena has now held her DRE license for twelve years, and been a part of the Tracy King real estate team for the last six of those years. Athena thrives on the challenge of administrating complex deals, gathering documentation together from various parties and agencies, and meeting tight and essential deadlines. As a new mother of twin girls, she has a special understanding of the hopes and fears of first-time buyers and growing families. Her prior corporate experience in customer and public relations lends itself particularly well to her communications with all the significant parties in a typical real estate transaction.
“I really get a thrill when a deal is complete, and I hear the excitement of our client, whether it is a seller receiving their check, or a buyer receiving the keys to their dream home," says Athena. "It is the most rewarding part of my job, and why I work so hard to achieve complete satisfaction for our clients”.
"Real estate deals and negotiations can be so complex that it's always a relief and reward when it closes and is final. I think to myself, 'Against all odds, we did it again.'"
