Ms. Katherine Dahl Van Marter


Katherine was born and raised outside Atlanta, Georgia. She attended Georgia State University, graduating with degrees in international political science and public policy. After graduating, Katherine worked with a national law firm in Atlanta before relocating to New Orleans, Louisiana where she attended Tulane University and received a master’s degree in international development and her Juris Doctor. While in law school, Katherine was a published member of the Tulane Journal on International and Comparative Law and received awards for public service by providing pro bono legal services both in New Orleans and the country of Panama.

Katherine began her practice in Louisiana as a policy fellow analyzing coastal restoration finance, climate adaptation policy, and private water and mineral rights in the Mississippi River Delta region. She then moved to Asheville, North Carolina to be closer to family and pursue a more traditional legal career, practicing litigation in federal court and handling both residential and commercial real estate transactions before forming her own firm. Katherine combines a strong work ethic and organized mind with a drive to find solutions for even the most complex issues, providing clients with seamless service and advocacy in their real estate transactions and beyond. Away from work, Katherine takes full advantage of all the outdoor activities that Western North Carolina has to offer with her pup, and enjoys traveling, bluegrass, and tacos.
