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
