Born an American, Athena Armstrong moved to Germany with her German mother at a young age where she spent most of her life and gained education at the Institute for Marketing & Communications in Berlin. Growing up bi-lingual, she appreciates her knowledge of both cultures. After travelling to 30 different countries, she recently came back to the United States to settle and found her new home in SWVA. “It was important to me to go back to where I came from and experience the American way of life.” says Armstrong. As a professional working in sales and management for 13 years in Germany, Athena learned the most important lesson: It is all about the client and it starts by listening to their vision to help them realize it. She now successfully combines her professional experience and zest with love for residential architecture and real estate. Practicing yoga and meditation on a daily basis helps her find balance and hone skills that allow her to build strong relationships with clients and support them in any way when they are making that big decision buying their dream home.
