About me

Katherine Herndon Martin is a native Washingtonian growing up in Chevy Chase, MD. As a licensed Realtor since 2007 and the daughter of a life-long realtor, Katherine’s real estate experience runs deep. When she started her real estate career, she partnered with her mother Gilda Herndon and learned the ropes about buying and selling all things real estate. Now that Gilda has retired, Katherine has continued the success by becoming a top producing agent year after year with McEnearney. 

Having grown up in the area, Katherine has a keen understanding of local schools, neighborhoods, and even local traffic patterns! Katherine’s goal is to work very hard for her clients, to always be available, and to give buyers and sellers the finest care. Buying or selling a home is a serious occasion both financially and emotionally; Katherine thrives in this environment making the process as smooth and rewarding as possible for all parties.
