Real Estate Sales/Property Management/Relocation/Retirement
We are Katie & Pat Dougherty and we moved to New Bern, NC, from Long Island, NY, in July of 2013. We started our real estate career in December of 2013 and began working as a husband & wife team called Celebrate New Bern Homes. Having gone through the relocation process ourselves in 2013, we bring ''fresh eyes'' to the New Bern real estate market.
Katie is a graduate of Manhattan College with a BS degree in Finance. She worked as a SAP Business Analyst in the IT department of CA, Inc. and then at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. She is also an accomplished trumpeter and the ''technical'' driving force behind Celebrate New Bern Homes' business.
Pat was a successful classical musician in New York City for over 35 years. He played trumpet with New York's finest ensembles, toured, and recorded throughout North America and abroad. He also ran his own music business on Long Island. His family was in the real estate business along the South Shore of Long Island therefore he was immersed in the inner workings of real estate for over 20 years at the hands of his brother and sister.
We still play concerts together in New Bern with our brass ensemble Celebrations Brass. In our spare time we enjoy sailing, watching movies, driving our vintage sports car on the back roads of North Carolina, and getting together with friends!
