Born and raised in Raleigh, Kate has always had a deep connection to North Carolina. Kate was honored to receive the title of Miss North Carolina and she competed in the 1985 Miss USA Pageant - all while earning her Bachelor's Degree at Clemson University. After college, she worked in various positions within the real estate industry, including sales, new home construction, as a managing broker, and even owning her own firm, Kenney Real Estate. Kate’s dedication and determination earned her the Rookie of the Year award in her first year in business and she now hangs her real estate license in both North Carolina and Florida. She has been providing exceptional service in the Triangle real estate community for over 35 years.
Real estate runs in the Kenney’s bloodline, dating all the way back to the early 1900s. Her grandfather, Henry Faucette, was one of the founding members and president of the Board of Realtors. Kate's father, Stephen R. Kenney, also served as the President of the Raleigh Board of Realtors and the North Carolina Association of Realtors and was honored to be chosen as the Realtor of the Year for Wake County during his career. Kate's brother, Steve, retired from a nine-year career in the NFL and later became a successful developer in the Raleigh area.
Kate has two wonderful sons, named Cole and Connor. Cole has continued the family’s legacy and become a 4th generation realtor, and Connor is a Business Development and Sales Representative. Kate has one grandson, who may go on to become a 5th generation Raleigh Realtor and carry on the family tradition, but only time will tell!
Kate is always looking for ways to make her clients' real estate transactions as easy and productive for them as possible. She has a history of going the extra mile and is highly passionate about her work. Whether buying or selling, she wants to represent you!
