To say Kate is passionate about real estate is an understatement. She has over 25 years of experience developing, renovating, and marketing residential and commercial properties. Notable among her personal Maine real estate experiences is her role in the development of the Bernie’s Fashion building on Congress Street into 27 residential and commercial condos. Kate’s real estate fervor began in the mid-1990s when she was an early investor in the vibrant, historic commuting neighborhoods of Jersey City, NJ. She also worked in the business department of the New York Times where she designed special advertising sections and sources of revenue that remain in place today, which efforts won her a Publisher’s Award, a Marketing Creativity Award, and two President’s Circle Awards. During her New York years, her keen eye for spotting early market trends also allowed her to assist friends with their own lucrative real estate investments. In 2005 Kate and her family moved to Portland; while raising her young children, Kate worked in insurance and estate planning. However, as her children matured, she felt drawn back to real estate and obtained her license. Kate enjoys working in the multi-unit sector, and thrills in working with coastal properties and buyers new to the Maine market.
Kate graduated from Smith College and lives in Yarmouth with her Husband, artist Charlie Hewitt, her daughter, Ruby, and a menagerie of animals. She is also an accomplished artist with specialties in large, visceral paintings with washes of color and texture, as well as sculpture. Her work is featured in many private and corporate collections. She also enjoys hiking in the woods and along the coast with her English bulldog, Fearsome, and Jack Russell-mutt, Ricky; reading about history and police procedures; and travelling with her family.
