"Well, it’s obvious I think a lot of Athena as I’m on round two buying a home with her. She helped me get my other home sold despite some real challenges with the buyer’s lender backing out and then a 2nd buyer getting cold feet, but she never lost her positive attitude and encouraged me to do the same. She finally found the perfect buyer and she helped me to find and buy the perfect home for me too, right where I wanted to be. That was challenging too, but she kept plowing ahead, always professional and always upbeat and positive. I strongly recommend Athena, whether you are a buyer or a seller. She’s extremely diligent, knowledgeable and thorough."

"As a first-time homebuyer we had questions throughout the process and Athena could not have been more helpful along the way. She was incredibly knowledgable, thorough, and responsive throughout the home buying process. We really appreciated all of her help and experience with inspections, negotiation, and the market. I will definitely be selling us with Athena as well in the future."
"As a first time home buyer, Athena was absolutely the best I could have had. Not only was she incredibly knowledgable about different aspects of the market, but she also went above and beyond to find me the perfect home, and it wasn’t even listed! Getting the most beautiful home in the neighborhood in an off-market deal was the best outcome I could’ve possibly imagined, and having the most attentive, hardworking, and wonderful made the experience very low stress and very exciting. I will certainly use Athena for any future real estate endeavors, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for the best real estate in town!"
"I am so incredibly lucky to have Athena help me through my first home buying experience. With the Denver market being as competitive as it is, I was thankful to have someone as diligent, knowledgeable and responsive as she! She went above and beyond to be available for both showings, QandA. Even with a time crunch (2 months!), Athena helped me find my dream home and I felt very informed/updated throughout the entire process. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Side note: The previous owner had a child with the exact same name as me; first and middle. Take it from Athena, 'What is meant to be, will be!'"
"Athena is the best agent in Denver. She was so knowledgeable about the Colorado neighborhoods and history, and about the real estate market itself. Her process is dialed in and clear from the beginning and she is always prompt at responding and answering questions, or finding someone to answer the questions that she isn't 100% sure about. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. The Compass Concierge program is also a unique experience for someone selling and looking to make updates to increase sale value and Athena's help with this program is impeccable."
"It was a pleasure to work with Athena when purchasing my new home. I am a first-time home buyer and she walked me through every process every step of the way with clear and quick answers to every question I had. She made me feel comfortable and made the home buying process so much easier. Her expertise in real estate and knowledge of the market is like no other. Always on time, always there when I had random questions and concerns! I couldn’t imagine doing this without her. She’s one of kind. And I was very lucky to have her help me buy my first home!"
"Athena was so amazing in my house buying experience. She listened to my concerns and addressed all my needs. She was so kind and worked around my busy schedule of work and school. She was in constant communication and I felt confident in her and the process. It was my first home so I had a lot of questions. Even after I closed the house she helped me with some little things like finding internet service and programing the garage door. She is really a gem and I would recommend her to anyone!"
"Not only is Athena kind, personable and professional, but she also has endless energy and a single-minded focus for her clients. Her professionalism shown when she negotiated for us, handled efficiently and effectively complicated situations, and extremely responsive. She is well-versed in the Denver area and trends in its market. I highly highly highly recommend Athena."
"Athena was great to work with! She is friendly and goes above and beyond for her clients. She is great at all ends of communication including contract changes, questions from the buyer, resolving issues, working with sub-contractors, and answers calls and text at any hour of the day. I highly recommend her and will be using her again in the future!"
"Integrity, professionalism and a 5-star personal review from a family member made it an easy decision to hire her to sell my home. Her attention to detail and knowledge of the industry is truly unmatched! She sold my home in 1 week! It doesn't get any better than that, and it doesn't get any better than Athena for your realtor!"
"I couldn't recommend Athena more highly. She helped in every step of the process; from finding homes in my price range to hooking me up with the right folks to handle financing. Athena and her team made buying my first home a breeze!"
"Athena went above and beyond to make my first horn buying experience a success. She easily navigated the waters of local affordable homeowners' policies and was always available when needed. Truly a rockstar."
"Athena and Charlotte are the best! They worked extremely hard to help us find the house we were looking for in a competitive price range in a very competitive area of Denver. They patiently and methodically took us around to see properties as they become available, and they were always quick to respond to our questions and requests. Denver's real estate market is insane right now, but they know how to navigate through the obstacles. They gave us great advice on the best way to approach the house hunt, and they set up house viewings quickly. They were organized and remained positive throughout the process. This was our first home purchase, so we had a lot of questions and worries, but their knowledge and expertise set our minds at ease. They had our backs 100% from day one until closing!"
"Athena (Athena Brownson) and John (John Stegner) were such great partners to work with during our purchasing/selling adventure, I couldn’t hope for a better realtor agent team. They treated us like friends and looked out for our best interests at all times. The outcome speaks for itself - we ended up with a winning bid out of seven competing offers on our new house in our ideal neighborhood and sold our townhome above asking price with five offers on the table. John’s strategic advice of someone who knows the market and the business was instrumental in the successful outcome of both transactions.
John’s and Athena's professionalism, competence and reliability were unmatched during the entire process. When we were looking for a home, Athena was extremely responsive and accommodating to ensure we would be able to see houses as soon as they came on the market, which was key in a dynamic sellers' market. During the selling of our home (which sold over the weekend after two open houses), Athena went above and beyond to research and answer questions of potential buyers regarding our condo complex. She stayed late at every open house to maximize our chances of getting a good offer and reached out to us with any immediate questions from the buyers. We recommend John and Athena to our friends as a great team to navigate the real estate market."

"My family outgrew our first home and we decided to use a professional realtor to help us acquire our next home. There were so many moving parts to the buying and selling process we needed a true professional, we found Athena. Not only was she organized, but she was also our advocate, our voice and our friend. It makes all the difference in the world when you trust someone to do a job and they surpass your expectations with their professionalism, attention to detail, follow-through and commitment to your home happiness. I refer everyone looking to buy or sell to Athena. Athena Brownson is all you need in a realtor she has an amazing team and when you choose the right agent, it is a game-changer."
"I worked with Athena Brownson over the last year to find my home and I can't say enough about the service and commitment I had from her!! She truly was amazing and helped me through every step of the way! The Denver real estate market is tough right now but Athena was so diligent, patient, and never gave up on helping me find my dream home. I truly recommend her to anyone looking for a home! She was so knowledgeable about the market, negotiations when submitting offers, and finding a home that fit my needs and requests! Once under contract, she made it so easy and coordinated inspections, deadlines, and all the hectic tasks so I could concentrate on what was most important and stay calm. I recommend her hands down!"
"Athena was great to work with from the first showing to my closing. She was always accessible and very quick to respond when I had a question or concern. She knew this was my first home buying experience and was patient and didn't try and push me into a quick buy, it was on my terms when I was ready. She sent me daily listings based on what we discussed were important to me in terms of the home and also what my budget was. Even weeks after closing she checks in on me to see how the home is coming along and just to say hello, very professional and friendly. If I am to sell or buy another home, Athena will be the first person that I reach out to."
"The only reason I have a home is because of Charlotte and Athena. I mean that sincerely and honestly, these two are the sole reason I am a homeowner. I live in Boulder where the housing market is extremely competitive - everything seems to be going for more than 10% above asking price and quite often sells for cash. In fact, the first home I put an offer on had 32 other competing offers and sold for cash. Through their vast network, they were able to find me a property before it made it to the market. Not only this, but my home is 10 minutes away from where I work. Athena and Charlotte, thank you. I love my home."
"I can't recommend Athena enough! She made selling extremely easy for us, was very open with communications and expectations, and took the guesswork out of the whole process. She went above and beyond with open houses and marketing and touched base with us on a daily basis to check in on progress. Once we accepted an offer, Athena made the paperwork and closing a breeze! She was always available to answer questions and made us feel like her top priority throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend Athena!"
"Working with Athena and Rhianon made the purchase of my home smooth and pain-free from the very start. I purchased a new construction home which could have been extremely stressful, and they truly helped me navigate the sale with ease. Their communication skills and availability allowed me, the builder and my lender to be on the same page throughout the building process. I would highly recommend using them for the purchase or sale of your property!"
"Athena is fantastic! I have now had 3 real estate transactions with her and John at New Era and I will continue to recommend them to everyone I know. They are knowledgeable, kind, extremely responsive and frankly - pretty fun to be with. Purchasing homes can be stressful but I was never worried about details with this team. If you are interested in buying or selling - you can rest assured that you will be taken care of and feel like you are their only client."
"Athena did a tremendous job helping us sell my late, father-in-law's condo. She was very helpful with all of the intricacies of dealing with a condo that was located in a very regulated senior community and was spot on with her knowledge of the housing market. Working with Athena helped take some of the weight off of our shoulders in an already emotionally difficult time."
"They are amazing! I had a crazy selling experience with issues with the buyers but Athena stood up for us and made sure we were well taken care of in what could have been a very stressful situation. I'd recommend them to anyone as they know their stuff and the Denver/front range market really well and get the job done while working hard to make sure you're happy and getting the best deal you can get!"
"Athena was great to work with. She went above and beyond to find potential houses before they came onto the market and get us showings. She was very professional and handled a tricky negotiation process with great tact and confidence. We look forward to working with her in the future."
"Athena is an outstanding real-estate agent with incredible insight and work ethic! Also, she's a Colorado native with deep networked roots. It's hard to find agents that are worth anything - especially when they more interested in 'looking the part' rather than actually 'doing their part' - Athena goes far above in all categories!!!"
"Athena was fantastic. As our buyer's agent, she worked hard to find us the perfect house in an incredibly competitive market, even going to see houses and sending me videos when I couldn't be in town. She was quick and responsive and helped me stay focused and calm under a great deal of stress. I very highly recommend this team!"
