Kathy Whittington


Kathy left the bustling corporate world in Charlotte NC and relocated to the quaint neighborhoods of Blowing Rock and Boone over 30 years ago to attend Appalachian State University where she completed both her graduate and undergraduate degrees.

She is passionate about this beautiful four-season community, and loves to share with others all it has to offer. As a long-time resident of the High Country, Kathy knows the area well…everything from the best places to eat and shop, the locations of every school, church, and playground, and the out of the way hiking trails and swimming holes.

Important for buyers, sellers, and investors, is that she has a finger on the pulse of the local community. She stays abreast of changes in trends, sales prices, and local development and has a strong sense of value pricing. As a real estate agent, Kathy is effective in helping clients navigate the waters of each real estate transaction. With her assistance, successful offers and listings are created, negotiations for fair pricing are agreed upon, and the positive progression to the ultimate goal of closing is accomplished. She is committed to professionalism, integrity, and hard work. Kathy loves being networked with Coldwell Banker Blair and Associates, with its over 25 years of real estate services in the High Country.

On a personal note, her husband, Danny Whittington, is well known in the High Country as a successful hair stylist and musician. In fact they met when, in college, Kathy was his client. Together they are very involved in their church, through worship and small group fellowships. Their hearts are knit tightly with their children, and they truly enjoying snuggling with their grandchildren at every opportunity.

“True success comes through listening” Kathy says, and it’s her hope that each client’s real estate experience will cause them to smile. She would be honored to be your resource for buying and selling in the High Country!
