Kat Varano is known for her fierce honesty, high standards, and her
well-respected long-time career in real estate sales and lending. Kat
continues her 25 years of experience as a full-time Realtor with
Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage in Wilmington.
Originally from rural Iowa, Kat lived in six other states during her lifetime
(Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Hawaii, South Carolina, and North Carolina).
She graduated magna cum laude in both of her degree programs, a
Bachelor of Science in Counseling and a Master of Arts in Education. In
addition to her education and experience, Kat has competed in track and
field, basketball, and bodybuilding, with tennis as her new sport of choice,
and she has authored a book, The Real Hawaii Life, about relocation.
Kat’s desire to do her best in everything translates to her clients as well.
“I am energized when meeting new people, finding out more about them,
and putting together the puzzle to help them achieve their real estate
Kat admits that one of her strengths developed from her time spent in
auditing and editing is crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s, “. . . because
those are the little things that can hold up a closing.” She attests, “I have
a keen awareness of identifying issues before they surface; it’s just from
the multitude of transactions I’ve been involved in; it’s understanding
human nature and the real estate business."
Serving in the community is a priority for Kat and her family. They often
volunteer with their church, New Hanover Church, and other local
organizations. Kat also spent seven years as a teacher and has a sincere
commitment to improve educational opportunities in Wilmington, which has
led her to serve on the launch team for Hope Classical Christian Academy.
Kat is the wife of Nathan, a busy chiropractor and owner of The Fix
Chiropractic, a low-cost clinic. They have four children, and one grand
baby, who are all scattered around the country. They enjoy everything
water and take full advantage of the water sports and activities in
Wilmington and the surrounding area.
