Katie Olejniczak has been helping home buyers and sellers as a real estate agent in both North and South Carolina since 2016. Her love for helping people mixed with her passion for real estate sparked her desire to become an agent!

Katie spent a few years on the #1 team at Keller Williams, in the Carolinas, landing as Top Producer quickly followed by excelling as a Training, Sales & Expansion manager in Charleston, SC. Katie chose to bet on herself back in early 2022 and broke off on her own, ultimately landing at Corcoran HM Properties and hasn’t looked back since. She has built a successful career in real estate helping friends, family and referrals buy and sell in the Carolinas.

Katie loves providing amazing experiences to her clients from the moment they meet and even beyond the transaction. You’ll often find her throwing client events, Moms Night Outs and offering even more surprises throughout each year. “Buying or selling your home is likely one of, if not the biggest, purchase or sale someone will make in their lifetime. I am always honored when a client has chosen me to help them find their perfect home or maximize their proceeds when selling. It’s truly a joy to me and I love being able to celebrate them year after year!”

Katie spends much of her time outside of real estate, spoiling her daughter, Cameron Jo, and exploring Charleston! From playing at the park to trying out new restaurants and exploring all the things this beautiful city has to offer, Katie and her family are always on the go, enjoying every moment.
