Developers & partners
With seven offices worldwide and over 40 staff from 10 nationalities, we are diverse. It is this diversity, in both culture and approach, which enables us to break down the walls between people creating destinations, rural or urban, and those that want to become a part of them. We streamline all the processes in between.
To our property developers we are partners in their business.
We are a creative design studio mixed with a full-service international marketing and sales agency that specialises in creating and executing effective branding, sales and marketing campaigns for unique real estate projects in exciting destinations across the world.
From virgin pieces of peninsula land to decaying period properties in capital cities, we help people shape and deliver property development in a timeless manner, one that’s synchronised with international and domestic demand, and enables intuitive design to link with effective sales and marketing strategies.
How we work
The starting point with all our developer clients is to ascertain where they are in the lifecycle of a project. It could be just a piece of land with a vision that’s made it no further than pure thought. Or it could be a property development that’s been realised, but needs some reflection in order to tune it towards the people that will want to live there.
- Private finance
- Investor relations
The foundation of all our work is knowledge. It feeds our research, influences design and steers our strategies. The dynamics of a local market, its offering, its character and the resulting demand can change within a few metres. This is why we have fixed offices in all of our locations, centralised from our headquarters in London. Our teams in Lisbon, Paris, Barcelona and the rest keep us tapped in to the change, which makes this such an exciting industry.
This business was started by connecting people with places and property, and cutting out the red tape in between.
These people, now our partner agents, wanted something that, whilst very simple, was often unavailable to them anywhere.
They wanted a curated portfolio of the best property investment opportunities in Europe that their clients could cherry pick. They wanted easy-to-understand information that would resonate with their clients’ needs.
But above all else they wanted reliability of the end product, the companies creating them and the service Athena would provide to get their clients over the finish line.
Why partner with Athena Advisers?
Access to only the best properties
We work closely with the top developers in each destination in helping them create high-end beautiful properties in the most sought-after areas.
Full range of property services: marketing, sales, finance, back office, rentals
Partners and clients can make full use of our marketing tools, destination advisers, sales team, finance team, our back office and our rentals company — ensuring a smooth and efficient customer experience.
Full access to marketing tools
In creating informative brochures, web pages, newsletters, CGIs, drone footage, videos and more, we are able to communicate clearly and concisely with both our partners and their clients.
No client paperwork
We deal with all paperwork in-house including the administration, contract work, assistance with signature by proxy and more, meaning our partners can relax knowing that their clients are in safe hands.
We work with all sizes of companies, from global property brands to private introducers. Each has clients from different parts of the world, each with their own property investment requirements.
The most important stage of working with a new partner is the beginning. In addition to building a good relationship, one founded upon like-minded values in the world of property, we have to understand what their clients want – their needs and wishes.
Then, through professional efficiency, reliability, the sharing of market knowledge and simply helping partners keep their clients happy, we create a process that engages our partners to market our network of properties and investment opportunities effectively to their clients.

Our fine tuned process
One of the main reasons our partner agents choose to work with us is quite simple: we increase the chances of getting their client over the finish line. But to get to this stage we have to have a synchronised strategy that is mutually beneficial.
It starts with finding out what our partners’ goals are, what their clients’ needs are and how we can support these objectives using our range of in-house services.
Stock selection and due diligence are important, but having our own back office team enables us to keep watch over a client’s progress throughout every stage of their purchase, helping them navigate financial, taxation or legal matters related to their property or investment.
