Kate Kerkam

Associate Broker


I’ve always loved real estate since the time I was a child growing up in Bangor and the Midcoast of Maine. Having left the state to attend college at Brown University in Rhode Island and then living in Washington, DC, overseas, and Miami, I felt pulled back to my roots here in Maine in 2000 and have been in the Portland area ever since. As a licensed attorney since 2006, I bring a wealth of knowledge to all of my transactions and the ability to head off any issues before they become bigger problems for my clients. I genuinely love working with people, whether it be in the best of times or one of the more difficult of their lives, and take great pleasure in being a patient guide and advocate through the home selling and buying
process. I’m also very committed to our local community and donate a portion of all of my commissions to organizations working to end homelessness in our area.

I now live in Cape Elizabeth with my two wonderful daughters, Clara and Hazel, and husband, Ted, who is active in the local mountain biking community. When I’m not out showing houses, you can find me volunteering with local organizations and at my children’s school, exploring the local trails and beaches, digging around at my community garden plot, or at home reading, cooking, and playing with my children.

What do you love most about real estate?

“ I love that every day, client, home, and transaction is unique and that I get to help people with one of the biggest purchases or sales of their lives. ”

Susan P., Portland (sold), Brunswick (bought)-
We have engaged in many real estate transactions over the years but have never been as impressed with a realtor as we have been by Kate. She displays a high degree of integrity and competence and is very responsive to emails and phone calls, despite her busy life. She is truly a pleasure to work with and makes what can be a stressful process much easier. We highly recommend her for any real estate purpose

Jaime D., Portland–
Kate is every buyer's dream! I was new to Maine and her expertise in real estate, Maine law, and community surpassed my expectations. Kate's dedication and work ethic shined throughout my search. She goes above and beyond for her clients, sharing details and info that I didn't even know I was supposed to ask for. All to say, she was one step ahead of me the entire process, extremely thorough, and navigated it all with grace and professionalism. Plus she's a wonderful human being with a warm smile and patient beyond words. I highly recommend contacting Kate for all your real estate needs!

Judith Z., North Yarmouth (sold), Freeport (bought)-
We worked with Kate to buy a new home and to sell our home. She was patient, kind, supportive and very thorough. Her advice and guidance helped us buy our dream home despite several other offers in greater Portland’s “hot” market. She showed our home many times, bringing in 3 offers and selling at asking price. She is hard working, good at keeping in touch, fair, and honest. Highly recommend Kate!
