Maya & Kathryn

Kathryn grew up one of six children working in her parents’ “Mom & Pop” grocery store in a small town in south western Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh. After graduating from IUP (Indiana University of Pennsylvania) she worked for the airlines and lived all over the country (Kansas City, Dallas, Houston, Denver, Salt Lake City, Montclair NJ, and Raleigh). She remains a Steeler fan even after all those moves.In Houston she also owned a desktop publishing business for eight years. She loves learning and has taught herself website creation and has built many websites to date. Learning all the latest tools and technology tips keeps her quite busy when real estate doesn’t. She even finds time now and again to teach computer classes at the Emerald Isle town hall. For play time she and her husband Henry enjoy scuba diving and sailing. At home she enjoys walking the beach with her dog.

She found her way to Cary, NC in the late 90s where she got her real estate agent’s license and then broker’s license. After working as a member of the Kelly Cobb Home Team (Fonville Morisey) she decided it was time to realize her dream of living at the beach and moved to Emerald Isle.

“Growing up as one of six kids in the family business I learned many things about relationships and people. Most importantly I learned to listen to what people ask for and to gear my services to meet those needs as efficiently, as effectively and as honestly as I can.
