Athena Handleson

A native Californian born in Long Beach, Athena came to Halton Pardee with 12 years of being a real estate agent. Wanting to be client-focused yet satisfy her strengths of being a taskmaster, Athena is a great addition to our Operations team. She is instrumental in keeping our office moving swiftly and smoothly all at the same time.

Athena has always had a passion of helping people and with her family involved in real estate, her interest sparked to get her license. She built a strong 12-year foundation in the real estate industry before focusing on her family and in particular, her son’s acting career. After many years of successful TV shows, her son is managing his acting career and thus Athena continues where she left off pursuing her talents in real estate. Now that her children are older, she was ready to fall in love with real estate again.

Athena has been married for 23 years and loves spending time with her two children, stepdaughter, and grandson kayaking, boating, and relaxing on the beach. Her energetic attitude and memorable laugh can turn anyone’s frown upside down.

Penny was great at getting us listed and pushing for the most money. The staging pictures were beautiful and we got a lot of online hits/in person views.…Selling a condo was a bit strange during Covid as buyers wanted more single family homes. We also hit the holidays, some uncertainty with changes in a president, etc. Pennys team was great at helping us re-strategize in a buyers market. Athena and the rest of her team helped keep us on track. Their communication was always professional and Penny was always available vis phone when we had questions. In general they made a stressful situation easy and helped us sell our 3 bedroom/3 bathroom condo.

I was coordinating the sale of a family home in LA from my home in New Jersey. Penny and her associate Athena handled far more than I would…have expected them to manage. In order to list the home, it needed san industrial clean out, multiple repairs, painting, and staging. Penny and Athena handled it all. We found our buyer in just a few weeks and got a good price. The home was in some disrepair and we expected a big request for repair discounts. Penny and Athena helped us navigate the process and guide us toward an agreement. They needed to get competitive quotes from various trades for us to negotiate with the buyers repair demands and more. Overall, an excellent experience. Fast, friendly, honest and extremely competent.

Stormie and Athena were amazing- they were very responsive and organized. The Pardee’s understanding of the market is unparalleled in these interesting times. We have used them for…/> three houses and I can’t imagine using someone else.
