Hi, I’m Athena Paquette
I’ve been helping people get home loans since 1990. In that time I have helped people stay in their homes after divorce, first time buyers secure a home loan, retired couples purchase a vacation home, and new investors finance property.
In fact, 80% of my business comes from referrals by satisfied clients. Why? Because I work tirelessly to find you right loan, explain the process in plain English, and advocate on your behalf with the lenders.
So, whether you are a first time home buyer or investor, single or married, working or retired, you have questions and I have solutions.
Call me today for a free 90-minute consultation to discuss your loan options at 310-218-6855 or email me at Athena@AthenaPaquette.com

A client followed my advice 2 years ago and bought property (a duplex) in the Miami area. Her first investment property! She only had $40,000 to invest, so SoCal was out of the question. We focused on Miami because I have a team built up out there. She...read more

A longtime client (did her first loan in 1992) called me to see if she could get a HELOC converted to a fixed rate (I actually got 3 such calls this week cause of the fed raising the rate) or should she refi. I said it’s cheaper if her current HELOC lender...read more
