Since 2003 Athena Advisers have enjoyed creating a different kind of international property company, one that challenges the norm. We now occupy our own unique space in the world of property, design & finance. Property developers value our insight, investors value our expertise, property agents value our reach and we value the impact we have on these people and their life-changing property, investment and lifestyle decisions. Athena Advisers was founded on the idea of building bridges - cultural and communicative bridges - between investors, real estate agents, developers, second home purchasers and the many other entities, which make up this fast-paced and ever-changing sector.
Today we are an international sales network and property investment advisory with six offices across five countries. We provide local property market knowledge on an international scale using the meticulous knowledge of our carefully nurtured network of property advisers. We use this insight to handpick but also design and curate the best possible property investment and second-home opportunities for our diverse range of multinational clients. It is an exciting time of growth for our business. We are currently expanding our reach across the rental and financial services industries and we are also increasing the size of some of our offices worldwide in order to cater for the global demand we are creating in these markets.
