Kat Varano, Realtor, Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage
From the earliest age I can remember, I loved everything vintage, so the transition to selling homes in historic neighborhoods was an easy one. With over 25 years of lending and real estate sales experience, in addition to the past restoration of my own historic home and my many local sales of historic home, my expertise will help to navigate the intricacies of these unique homes.
Besides understanding older homes, my strengths lie in the details, which have developed from my time spent auditing while working in finance and from editing for a newspaper. These experiences have equipped me with a keen awareness of identifying hurdles before they surface.
It would be my privilege to guide you through the process of becoming part of one of Wilmington’s historic neighborhoods and helping to preserve our town’s history!
