Katherine (or Kathy to her family & friends) is the true epitome of what it means to be a North Carolina Gal. With one foot in the city of Raleigh, the other foot in the farm community of Newton Grove and her toes in the beautiful waters of Topsail & Wrightsville Beaches, Kathy grew up with a perfect mesh of these three distinct lifestyles and loves the pleasures and diversities that go with each. This passion and knowledge enables her to provide the exact expertise needed no matter your reason for buying or selling in the NC Coastal Region. As an original Raleigh native, Kathy grew up among a family of prominent builders and real estate professionals. This instilled a deeply rooted passion for real estate, specifically in finding “THE PERFECT HOME” that meets the needs of each and every customer. Kathy will always work diligently on your behalf to protect and promote your best interest throughout the entire buying and selling process. During her college years at NC State, Kathy met her “Surfer-Boy” husband Jeff who grew up in the Wrightsville Beach & Wilmington area. After marriage, Kathy spent the next 20yrs putting her accounting & management skills to good use helping her husband run a family retail business in the Raleigh area while also building and flipping 6 beautiful custom homes. Each of these successful ventures have instilled impeccable customer service skills which Kathy feels is of the upmost importance in the real estate world, since no two people or homes are ever the same. She listens carefully to her client’s needs and desires – then works nonstop to make the “Dream Home” happen. The Salt Life kept calling and eventually Kathy and her husband moved their family of dogs, a show horse, and a high school teenager back to her husband’s coastal hometown and never looked back! Kathy immediately became involved in her daughter’s school where she served for two years as treasurer of the Lyceum parent board at New Hanover High School. Coupling her management and accounting skills with top-notch customer service has allowed Kathy to transition seamlessly from the accounting and retail world to real estate. In her spare time Kathy can usually be found gardening or working with her many in & outdoor plants. She and her husband Jeff also spend a lot of time with their saltwater aquarium hobby as well as boating on the ICW. Kathy loves exploring the barrier islands, shell hunting or pulling into the many restaurants that have boat access in the different beach communities. Currently, Kathy is enjoying traveling to the NC Mountains to see their daughter who after graduation from UNCW decided to further her education at WCU. Kathy loves being a Realtor and truly values each customer. She always strives to create relationships that go beyond the closed transaction. From the moment of first contact, she will do everything possible to make sure you have the best real estate experience possible. So - if the Salt Life is calling you, as it did Kathy many years ago please give her a call today! It would be her pleasure to assist you in making your real estate dreams in the NC Coastal region come true!
