Catherine Davis has over 30 years of photography experience in the corporate and editorial industry, and as a commercial and personal photographer.

A native of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Catherine got her start in corporate and editorial photography working with clients such as RiverCity Company, Georgia Trend Magazine, Coastal Healthcare and AT&T. Recently, Catherine served as principal photographer for 919 Magazine. While most of her time is spent working with small businesses, she also works with high school seniors and families to help them capture their lifelong memories.

When she’s not photographing, Catherine lives for adventure and “paying it forward”. She once spent 10 months traveling the world by bicycle (more than half, she completed solo!) exploring Fiji, New Zealand, Thailand, India and many more destinations along the way. Today, she rides about 5000 miles a year and is passionate about raising money for cancer and diabetes through 2 bike events:
Le Tour de Femme and Tour de Cure).

It’s Catherine’s adventurous spirit, along with her ability to capture beautiful moments within her clients’ everyday lives, that allows her to stand out as a premier photographer in the Triangle.

Marketing Calendar Ideas - Social Media Post Ideas - Keep Learning - Sharon Webb - Hope Now ( 2020 )

June 10, 2020

I came to Real Estate with 20+ years of experience in marketing where I learned savvy marketing skills, high level negotiation skills and an intricate knowledge of the local market that all inform my Real Estate career now! When it comes to the marketing element of Real Estate, I am very confident to say that "I just do it better!". I know things about marketing and technology that most other agents do not. Combine those skills and the fact that I am a "numbers girl" and you find a powerhouse Realtor on your side at the negotiation table! My goal is always to look out for your best interest and to help insure the best price and terms will be met on your behalf. My calm nature offers that "stability" that my clients need while they go through all of the emotional highs and lows that come with a Real Estate transaction.

My friends tease me that I was put on this earth to be a REALTOR because I work long hours but I never feel like I am working and I am genuinely passionate about helping my clients! Looking forward to helping YOU!
