Within two years of being in the business Katherine doubled the highest residential sale in the province also bringing the appreciation of this beautiful province to the forefront! Bringing attention to our beautiful province is important to Katherine and her clients. Her article “Canada’s Best Kept Secret” was published in 2017 in the DuPont Registry, Home Edition, highlighting all the wonderful attributes life in New Brunswick offers.

Katherine’s twenty years of design experience works in many ways towards selling your house. First and foremost is the extensive lists of personal contacts, all people with the financial means to purchase the property of their choice. Second is that “Finishing Touch” the designer brings into the mix to help prepare your house for sale. Katherine is the only REALTOR in Canada to provide this unique combination at this advanced level. A third important fact to buyers and sellers is that specific details of the home’s construction and features can not only be pointed out, but approximations made to serious buyers as to replacement costs showing them the advantage of buying verses building as well as renovation possibilities! The most important trait a REALTOR working as a buyer’s agent can bring to the table is the ability to listen very carefully and distinctly hear your specific needs. Working for many years as a designer hones this quality as we must learn to quickly and effectively analyse your dream home in great detail. This expertise saves you valuable time when shopping for that new home as I will only show you homes that fulfil all of your preferences within your specified price range!
Although Katherine has travelled the globe, Russia to Egypt, Paris to Panama, she has called Saint John & the Kennebecasis Valley home all of her life. Since 1995 she resides in Rothesay on the third tee of the Riverside Golf & Country Club, with her husband, Doug and two large dogs Nicholas and Buddy (the company mascot). Her family are avid animal lovers and her father always kept a stable of horses. She started at the Rothesay Pony Club when she was 5 years old and for many years she and her father competed province wide in equestrian events. Her mother was great music and theatre lover, introduced her to the arts at a young age. This exposure served her well and prepared the way for numerous charity concerts, which she single-handedly wrote and produced at the Imperial Theatre and one at The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception for the Jubilee which in total raised $85,000 for local charities. Her past hobbies have included boating, downhill and water skiing and she currently enjoys gardening, the arts and travel. Her interests are quite diverse as figure skating (active member of the Saint John Figure Skating Club for 10 years) and motocross (competed across the Atlantic circuit with my brother, Tom, holding the position as the only female racer until 1998) were at one time a big part of her life. She has an easy smile and people feel comfortable and confident with her right from the start. She gives 100% to all her endeavours and believes, if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well. Her father, (mentor and best friend) Tom Wiggins Sr., taught her when her was 5 years old, “Nothing can stop a women who will stop at nothing!” “Never be afraid to step out and try something new, you’ll never know what you can do unless you try!” She lives by his motto, it keeps her life fulfilled and interesting! As her husband attests, “Never a dull moment”!
