Katie Gillig

“I love everything this city has to offer...a rich culture, an amazing history, beautiful architecture, endless beauty, perfect beaches, outdoor activities galore, the arts, an amazing culinary scene, and just great people. Helping others fall in love with Charleston like I have makes me happy.”

Living in Charleston has always been Katie’s dream. She was raised in Chicago, Illinois, and annual trips to Charleston were a special tradition and helped cultivate her love of this historic and charming city. She graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in Communications and Psychology and spent time studying in Italy and traveling around Europe. After 30 years, she and her family put the cold winters behind them and made the move to South Carolina - first to Columbia and then to John’s Island a few years later. Today, Katie lives in her dream neighborhood in Mount Pleasant which she has called home since 2019, and has two beautiful children and two Cockapoos.

Before joining Corcoran in early 2022, Katie spent nearly 20 years in sales and marketing and worked with top companies and non-profits in Chicago and South Carolina to help them achieve their goals and make an impact. Notably in 2014, Katie began a successful career with Rodan + Fields. Within her first year she became a leading top sales consultant reaching the top 2 percent of the company. She led 150 business owners across the country to reach their goals and provided first-class customer service to hundreds of clients. Helping others is truly more than a job to her, it is a passion. 

The home buying and/or selling process can be overwhelming, and with an eye for design and opportunity, Katie knows the important things to check off when looking for your dream home. She often collaborates with colleagues to help achieve her buyers’ and sellers’ goals.

She loves living in Mount Pleasant and being a short drive to the beach, downtown and all of her children’s activities. In her spare time, you can find her running, playing tennis, reading on the beach, dining with friends or relaxing at home with her kids.

Whether you are searching for a second home on Charleston’s fabled peninsula or on our beautiful beaches, looking to relocate your family to one of the Lowcountry’s picturesque neighborhoods, or locally looking for your next dream home, Katie will happily guide you through every step of the process with unmatched service and attention to detail. She would love to connect and help you achieve your goals!
