We curate exceptional properties for sale in France, Portugal, and beyond. As well as advising investors and their families to buy and sell, we can help with: tax structuring, mortgages, building permits, decoration, rental strategy and more.
Our approach allows us to confidently present clients not only with beautiful properties but also with sound investment opportunities in each of our markets thanks to both the local presence of our on-the-ground property experts and our strong network of highly regarded developers and architects.
The dynamics of our property locations, their offering, character and the resulting demand can change within a few metres. This is why we have dedicated offices in the locations where we operate, all centralised from our HQ in London.
Our experts in Lisbon, Paris, the French Alps and Stockholm have years of experience handpicking the most appealing properties in the very best locations for our clients.
You may have very specific property requirements or be completely open to our suggestions. Either way, we have an intimate know of each property and location and will talk you through your options and accompany you on property visits, either in person or virtually.
20 years ago we found that investing in property overseas consistently threw up roadblocks and red tape. There was no one in the industry, from the big global players to small boutique agencies, that really had a grip on the entire process. Some just listed any property they could find, leaving their clients to trawl through them to find the best. Others would refine their selection but couldn’t help clients through the purchase process. This is how Athena Advisers started.
We help everyone, from budding second-home owners to residential or commercial property investors, even real estate funds, to invest in property. We select the best in each market, simplify the purchase process, optimise tax structures, organise finance, manage rentals, everything right down to translating contracts. All to take the sting out of the process.
