Kate and her husband Paul reside in Charlotte with their two children and Pomeranian. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling and finding her clients the perfect place to call home.
Kate is an absolute GEM! She's incredibly kind, knowledgeable, patient, honest, and reliable. Kate walked us through every step of the home buying process, always quick to respond, and thoroughly answered every question. I felt listened to and heard and the result is that we got exactly what we wanted! Her experience is unmatched and her knowledge of Charlotte is invaluable. It's like having a friend on the inside that really cares about doing what is best for YOU. I cannot recommend Kate Terrigno highly enough. I wouldn't work with anyone else!Kimberly H
From the very first phone call straight through to closing day, Kate was nothing short of outstanding. Living in Europe, we needed help selling our house remotely. Kate stepped up in every way, visiting the house, arranging the repairs and improvements, getting it listed, and getting multiple offers (most above asking price) in just the first day. The initiative and level of ownership she took when agreeing to help us was more like a relative than someone we'd just met. We couldn't be more happy with our experience. Thank you Kate!Russ N
Kate is simply the best! We could not have asked for a better person to guide us through the process as first time home buyers. From start to finish, Kate was reliable, responsive and super knowledgeable. Day or night, any question we had was answered right away. Even as our wish list kept changing, Kate was patient and easy to work with. Once we put in our offer, Kate handled everything seamlessly and we never had to worry. I couldn't believe how stress free she made it. She always checked in to make sure we understood what was happening and were comfortable. If you are looking for a dynamite realtor in Charlotte look no further! Kate is it!Jessica Z
Kate was attentive and very knowledgeable. Not only did she help us get our home under contract quickly, she went above and beyond helping us close given that our buyers were representing themselves. I would definitely recommend her as a realtor, especially to those looking to sell in/around neighborhoods in uptown CharlotteAshleigh R
Kate did an amazing job on our search for a home. We moved from out of town and Kate did such a good job finding the type of house that we wanted. She was very on top of things and moved on the house we wanted quickly. She is very responsive and always available to answer any questions, and I asked a LOT of questions. I highly recommend her for your home search especially if you are moving from out of town. She was awesome!Jamie K
Kate did an amazing job of selling our home in the Country Club Heights neighborhood of Charlotte. Kate was very professional as well as personable, taking the time to work with us in the preparation for selling our home. The marketing materials were top notch and Kate was very attentive during the entire process. We really enjoyed working with Kate, and we highly recommend her!Mike W
If you are thinking about buying or selling a home in the Charlotte market, Kate is THE person to have on your side! We met Kate a few years ago, and having witnessed her success selling homes in our area, we felt it was a natural choice to have her as our agent when it came time for us to move. She made navigating through the process of selling our home so much less stressful than anticipated, and she was always there to answer our questions and reassure us whenever we felt overwhelmed. She handled contract negotiations like a pro, and even got involved with our financing institution when we encountered appraisal issues. Whether it was staging and preparing for pictures, scheduling and handling showings, writing up an offer, dealing with inspections, or managing the intricacies of the paperwork, she was by FAR the most skilled agent either of us have ever worked with. She absolutely positively blew us away with her professionalism, knowledge, and loyalty; I can't sing her praises enough!Michelle L
We heard about Kate through a friend who also had a positive experience and decided to meet with her. Immediately she understood that we were new to the area and weren't familiar to a lot of the surrounding areas of Charlotte, she took into account that my husband and I had different ideas of where we wanted to live based on both of our jobs, and best of all she explained everything to us throughout the process. She initially drove us around the Charlotte area, introduced us to the different suburbs, pointed out helpful streets, schools, grocery stores, banks, access to highways, etc- all the little things that make a city your home.
She never pressured us throughout the time of searching, driving endlessly to houses and their surrounding towns to see what life would be like to live there. She understood that both of us had busy work lives, were also in the middle of planning our wedding, and was always flexible with our schedules. Kate was always prompt to follow up on questions we had, thoroughly did her research on the houses we were interested in, and always advocated for us when talking to sellers or builders. Best of all, she gave us both her professional and personal opinions on things that we definitely appreciated when buying our first-time home. She really became a friend throughout this process, and we are so thankful for such a thoughtful realtor like Kate.
We decided to build our home with Classica and even then Kate supported us and gave her helpful ideas/thoughts in all of the structural decision and design process. We've been in our new home for about three months now and couldn't be happier and often think about Kate when we look at certain things that she helped us with. We couldn't have done this without her and highly recommend Kate Terrigno for any selling/buying needs.
Kate was amazing! Not only she was dedicated and responsive throughout the whole process, she also gave me very honest and unbiased feedback on each property we visited. She never pushed me towards a sale. In fact, she truly cared about what I wanted. She is definitely the agent you would want by your side.Tracey N
We have bought many houses over the last 35 years. We have NEVER had a real estate agent that met the standard achieved by Kate Terrigno. Her knowledge of the market was complete and her professionalism was of the highest standard. But what distinguished Kate from other agents was her willingness to go above and beyond the routine responsibilities of a realtor to ensure our purchase went smoothly. We were out of town buyers and Kate repeatedly stepped in to assist with inspections, contractors and the like. It really was astoundingly helpful. On top of that, she has a delightful personality.Kathy and William M
My fiancé and I first met Kate when we relocated to Charlotte for work earlier this year. New to the area, we decided to rent first. We had 48 hours to find an apartment and sign our lease and Kate made sure our time was well spent. She helped us narrow down our options by getting to know us and our lifestyle in order to help steer us to the right part of town. By the end of the first day we fell in love with an apartment that wasn't even on our original list and have lived there happily for the past 10 months. Now we're getting ready to make a new kind of commitment to Charlotte and move into our first home that Kate recently helped us purchase. Our home buying process was much quicker than we initially anticipated, but Kate was there to guide us every step of the way. We couldn't be happier with our new home and would probably still be house hunting if it wasn't for Kate's expertise. Now we can focus on making our recent move to Charlotte permanent thanks to Kate!Kelly and Justin B
Kate Terrigno is a very professional Realtor who delivers results. We interviewed 3 other Realtors before selecting Kate as she agreed with our price and put forth a great marketing plan and brochure. We received an offer on our house on the first day AND for more than we were asking. Kate also referred us to a great attorney who helped with closing. Kate is simply the best.Carl H
Kate represented me on the purchase of my house. Having never been to Charlotte before to say it was a bit overwhelming was an understatement. However, Kate made my wife and I feel so comfortable. She spent countless hours showing us multiple homes and neighborhoods. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and amazing to work with. She is also extremely dedicated. While on her vacation she was still able to coordinate executing an offer on a home (talk about service!). I highly recommend Kate to anyone looking for assistance in purchasing/selling a home.Jason F
Kate has helped us navigate four transactions, both buying and selling over the past few years and I give her my highest recommendation. Each of the transactions has had its share of curveballs thrown our way and Kate has navigated each one beautifully! She is a wealth of knowledge and calm under fire - helping us through extremely stressful situations. As for results, we ended up with the two properties we wanted and sold two homes.. with offers the first weekend and transactions above the asking price for the latter!!! If you are looking for an agent, look no further!Brandon L
My husband and I feel so very fortunate to have had Kate Terrigno on our side throughout our transition to Charlotte. Every step of the way, she went above and beyond to gather information, offer insight, provide advice, and lend support. She skillfully applied her broad knowledge base and wide network of local contacts to partner with us in navigating the complex and fast-moving landscape of this real estate market. By making herself available to us when we needed her, Kate consistently demonstrated that she was totally committed to helping us reach our goals. She compassionately lent an ear when we became discouraged, but she never shied away from delivering the honest and objective advice that we needed to hear. In addition to being a smart and driven professional, Kate is a lovely person. It's an honor to recommend her very, very highly!Mandy & Chris C
Kate Terrigno is an AMAZING realtor. Essentially, she made the impossible happen! I contacted her with a request I thought would never come through: I would come in less than a week to Charlotte for 2 nights and wanted to have made an offer on a great place before leaving. That was my timeline. Kate made it happen! She got me started immediately, reviewing and selecting potential places to visit and made sure I was ready to go from an administrative standpoint. Then, when I arrived in Charlotte, she picked me up and took me on a tour. Within 24 hours I had seen more than 10 great places and by the second day, I was ready to make an offer... but it doesn't end there. The place I loved the most had an open-house coming up the following day. Kate coached me through making the most compelling offer (and it was still below asking price!) and somehow, working her magic, she got my offer accepted before the open-house was even held! The rest went smoothly, and I recently closed. I couldn't imagine a more professional yet fun realtor. She's got more energy than you could hope for. I highly recommend her, and once you've gotten started, I highly recommend you TRUST her and let her help you!Samuel C
