“...I really get a thrill when a deal is complete, and I hear the excitement of our client..."
For Closing Coordinator Athena Torres, the world of real estate fit like a glove the moment she decided to pursue it as a career, bringing her experience and knack for customer service and organization together in a meaningful way. With over 15 years in the real estate industry, this charismatic, empathetic, and tenacious mother of twin daughters is motivated by the thrill she feels when bringing a client’s deal to completion.
“Whether it’s a seller receiving their check or a buyer receiving the keys to their dream home,” describes Athena, “I can feel that joy and it’s the most rewarding part of my job—and why I work so hard to achieve complete satisfaction for our clients.”
Having began her professional career working in the customer service department of a large food and beverage company—where she worked diligently for 6 years to become a much-valued member of the team—Athena learned how to effectively communicate with, attend to, and decipher what her customers wanted. For the past ten years, Athena has used these skills to communicate with all significant parties in a real estate transaction and navigate the team’s clients through the final stages of their home purchase or sale.
When she's not keeping the team organized and on track, Athena enjoys going to concerts, watching her twins' school and hula performances, and hosting barbecues and tamale-making parties for family and friends.
