As a long-time Raleigh homeowner who has personally experienced the frustrations of finding quality contractors, Katherine ‘Kat’ Holden offers her clients an easy, time-saving way to accomplish those things that never get crossed off their ‘To-Do’ lists. In 1999, she helped build her family’s custom home and discovered a passion for finding professionals who take pride in their handiwork and complete jobs on time and within budget. Kat’s business experience gives her a unique perspective on the importance of personalized, reliable service as well as prompt follow-up to assure customer satisfaction. With Kat, homeowners know they have a friendly and knowledgeable neighbor who takes the guesswork out of getting a job done effectively and efficiently.
Kat has held management and marketing positions with Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Save the Children International, Turner Broadcasting System (TBS) and American Bankers Association. During her time at Save the Children International, she identified and developed corporate partnerships with Liberty of London, Elizabeth Arden and Hallmark Cards that helped generate proceeds for the non-profit foundation. With TBS, Kat managed Fortune 500 corporate sponsors including Toshiba, Kodak, Wendy’s and Pepsi for the Goodwill Games in Seattle, Washington.
Kat, a Raleigh native, has traveled extensively throughout Europe, South America and Australia and previously lived in Denver, Washington D.C., New York City, Atlanta and Seattle. She enjoys attending home shows and Parade of Homes events as well as keeping up with the latest trends in home improvement.
The services she offers now through Kat’s Home Repair Referrals would have saved her considerable time and money when she built her custom home and helped her builder find qualified professionals to construct the detailed features she wanted.
Kat earned a bachelor’s degree in speech pathology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and did post-graduate work at the University of Denver in Denver, Colorado. She currently lives in Raleigh with her family and envisions the many possibilities for renovating the bedrooms of her three children when they go off to college!
