Katherine Hale McNicholas
Katherine’s enthusiasm & warmth is contagious. (She truly hasn’t met a stranger!) Katherine has the unique combination of creative and analytical savvy, providing her clients with a personalized & knowledgeable approach to their specific home buying & selling needs.
Katherine’s enthusiasm for real estate began at an early age. As a little girl on family Sunday afternoon drives, she remembers gawking at charming farmhouses & historic Greek Revivals, discovering tucked away neighborhoods, and listening to her parents share the local lore. Real estate to Katherine encompasses more than just price tags, it’s a reflection of a community’s past & future. As a real estate agent, Katherine continues this passion for history, architecture & design, but with an emphasis on providing a knowledgeable consultation for her clientele. It is her focus to equip clients with the information & tools to make their most informed & best decisions. She excels with the analytical aspect of researching properties & scrutinizing market conditions; as well as having a creative knack for helping sellers assess home improvements, effective staging, and strategic property marketing.
Katherine currently resides in the small city of Waynesboro with her supportive husband, Patrick and their two fantastic children. In addition to monitoring the local real estate market, she is passionate about infographics, her fantasy football team, and older homes. Her heart flutters when she hears the term, “Great bones with potential.”
Favorite Local Business
Katherine and her family love to play a good ol’ competitive round of putt-putt at Waynesboro Golf & Games! Her husband really enjoys their par 3 course as well.
Interesting Tid-Bit: Katherine designed and painted the entire blacktop at Westwood Hills Elementary. It was the initial spark needed to begin the school’s new playground fundraiser initiative.
I can’t say enough about Katherine. She helped me find the perfect home during a very stressful time. My mother had just passed away and my father’s health was failing. He needed to come and live with us. I lived in a split-level home which definitely would not work with an aging father. When I explained my situation to Katherine, she was like the Energizer Bunny. She worked so hard to find us just the right home. Within a short time, she found the PERFECT home for us. It worked perfectly for my father and my children, and my grandchildren love it.
Now I was left with my home that needed to sell quickly. Katherine not only recommended some improvements to our home, but she rolled up her sleeves and actually helped make those improvements. She staged the house in such a way that everyone that saw it fell in love with it. As a result, our home was sold in less than 2 weeks AND we got above asking price.”

Katherine represented my husband and I when we were in need of a home at a very difficult time in our lives. I was going through chemotherapy and my husband was not in the best health. We are an older couple and she was very mindful and considerate of our health problems. We had specific requirements regarding location and of course purchase price, and she was precise in remaining within those parameters. Katherine is ever cheerful. She became a friend while she was our realtor and is still a friend. In our case, she saw what we needed in a home before we recognized it ourselves and led us right to it.

I recently had the pleasure of having Katherine working with me to sell my home of 20 years and purchasing one in an HOA, in order to meet my future needs and closer to family. She stood by me with support and knowledge when I needed it. There was never a time in the year plus in this process that she was not available when I needed her. She had great ideas in prepping my home to sell and went above and beyond. She is easy to respect and trust to do her best in any situation. I would can will happily recommend her to anyone who needs a top-notch org and great realtor. Also, the follow up still goes on today!

Katherine helped me to sell my home in Waynesboro. Her personable approach, professional friendliness, and knowledge coupled with her artistic skills made the process very smooth. Katherine created a set of photos of several rooms in my home that presented the look of different wall colors for potential buyers. She was “johnny-on-the-spot” every time I asked for her help. She always prepared prompt follow-ups with me on the pro and con comments from all showings. I believe the negotiations for my sale were handled extremely well. I will always think of Katherine first as my agent, if I enter the market again.

I have nothing but praise for my home buying experience with Katherine McNicholas. She made herself readily available to me throughout the process and was always prompt in response to any call, text, or email. She listened to my needs and was great at recommending suitable properties but was always willing to look into any other properties that I had noticed online or while driving around town. I loved the comprehensive market analysis that she prepared for me. It gave me peace of mind when I made my final choice. On top of all of that, she made the whole process exciting and stress free. She helped me find my perfect home. I’m hoping to never have to move again, but if I ever need a Realtor in the future, she will definitely be the one I call.

The decision to sell or not to sell was not an easy one for me. The family had grown up and away and maybe it was time for a change, but surely not necessary. Rick Kane and Katherine McNicholas assured me they would be my side throughout the process- and they sure were!
The house was only listed for 12 hours before I had 2 very interested parties wanting to make offers. What seemed like a long term process was quickly swept into a 24 hour turn-around. I met Katherine that very first night when she came to my home with Rick to look at both offers and from the moment we first met I knew she was going to be a loyal and hard-working agent for me through the entire process.
Katherine was so very prompt in answering or finding out information to my questions through every step of the way. She is detail oriented and very business professional, yet quite a friend through the overwhelming process of selling a home in a day! I knew I could depend on her and she never disappointed me. Katherine exemplifies the true meaning of a highly competent talented realtor at the same time that she immediately becomes a friend to her clients – proving her expertise and professionalism.
If you are looking to sell, to buy or just looking for a friend to begin talking about future real estate options- Katherine McNicholas is a perfect pick!
