A lifelong New Yorker, Brigitte (Gigi) was raised on Long Island and traveled upstate for school, earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development at Cornell University. Brigitte went on to earn a Juris Doctor at Hofstra University School of Law, and is admitted in the State of New York (2009) and the US District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts (2009). Her interest in helping future fellow lawyers led her to Pieper Bar Review, where she assisted law students in their preparations for the New York Bar Exam. Brigitte also practiced law in New York City before finding Cooper & Cooper and deciding to pursue her true passion, real estate. Brigitte enjoys dining out as well as "deal hunting" for anything imaginable in Manhattan, including the perfect apartment. Feel free to ask her for tips!
Brigitte was a phenomenal broker! I worked with her when moving from San Francisco to NYC. She was extremely attentive and quick to reply to all requests and questions. I gave her a number of features I would like in an ideal apartment and she met them all. In that first day she showed me 8 apartments, all meeting my criteria. Through the whole process I knew she was there to support me in making the best possible living decision. She is professional, knowledgable and incredibly warm and personable. She will always be my first stop when house/apartment hunting in NY!

My girlfriend and I relocated from abroad, and we had a very small window to find an apartment. Brigitte found us an amazing place – she's organized, she knows the market well, and she was responsive to our criteria. Highly recommend working with her!
I had to take a moment to say THANK YOU for placing Brigitte with me to find my apartment in NYC! She is so personable, extremely communicative, great attention to detail and put me at ease for the first time since starting this process... I will refer her to anyone that asks me for someone I would trust for a rental or a purchase. I will also use her (and only her) going forward for any real estate needs I will have in the future (hands down)! Thank you so much and please thank her for being more helpful than she will ever know!

Despite being a native to the New York area – after 7 years living in Italy the thought of finding a decent apartment in Manhattan was beyond daunting. Gigi was very understanding given the limited documentation I could provide because of my time abroad and was reassuring that she could work with what I had... She really demonstrated that she listened to what it was I was looking for with a nice combination of areas, layouts (studios/1 bedrooms) and prices within the range. The places we saw were all nice too – and right away we saw a few that would be perfect... Basically, she took a miserable task and turned it into a great and exciting day of searching for a place that would be my home. In short, I would recommend Gigi without hesitation.

I had the pleasure of working with Brigitte to find my first apartment in New York, a notoriously daunting process. We had a discussion over the phone about expectations, my wish list and budget, and most importantly, the forms I needed to prepare so we could act fast if I saw an apartment I liked. Brigitte was organized and had scheduled appointments for 10+ thoughtfully considered apartments lined up for me to see. We found an apartment I loved and with her help, closing was seamless. From start to finish, Brigitte was positive, professional, and honest. She’s also wonderfully upbeat and personable. I would not hesitate to work with her again and have highly recommended her to my friends and colleagues.

Brigitte is one of the rare talents that you could drop into any role or industry and she would shine above her peers. I believe that this is true because Brigitte consistently demonstrates an excellent work ethic, professionalism, empathy, intellect and amazing attention to detail. I spoke to and met a lot of NYC property realtors before Brigitte was recommended. From the first meeting Brigitte was head and shoulders above the others - I did not consider another after this point. Brigitte's attention to detail and tenacity helped secure a successful home purchase in the city.
