Co-Founder | Broker
Kati Miller recently launched Caliber Fine Properties in Cashiers, North Carolina, with a keen understanding of the intricacies of the fields of real estate and a deep appreciation for this corner of Western North Carolina and its people.
Kati was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, and graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in Communications. After college, she took a position in banking, serving as branch manager for First Union Bank, which was later acquired by Wachovia. After several years in banking, Kati decided to begin her real estate career in Charlotte with Pappas Properties. There she helped launch a mixed-use community in the Queen City’s Uptown neighborhood marketing luxury condominiums. Kati credits that experience with giving her the skills and drive to relocate to Cashiers and help launch Old Cashiers Realty following the economic downturn of 2008.
Kati’s dedication to discreet and ethical representation of buyers and sellers has been a cornerstone to building her reputation as a top producer in the Highlands-Cashiers market. Kati also serves as Sales Director at Mountaintop Golf & Lake Club representing the community in Real Estate transactions. “I love this business because I truly love making people happy,” she explains. “I like taking care of people, solving problems and negotiating to get the best price for both buyers and sellers. Negotiating is all about give-and-take, and I feel like I have a common-sense and organic approach to helping buyers and sellers put their emotions aside and get deals done.”
In addition to a busy career, Kati is married with two children, Charlotte and Thomas, who attend Summit Charter School. Her husband, Cory, recently launched his own home building company and is one of the preferred builders at GlenCove. Throughout her life, Kati has been passionate about serving others, as evidenced by the arc of her career and the care that she took to find a dynamic community to raise her children and open a Real Estate Firm. “I want people to know that I truly have their best interests at heart and that I live by the Golden Rule: It’s more important to me that someone have an awesome experience than to make a sale.”
