Licensed Real Estate Salesperson
Born and raised in the Hudson Valley, Kate’s passion for people led her to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from State University of New York at Oneonta. After graduation, Kate worked as an event planner and hotel manager at a historic hotel overlooking the Hudson River, hosting a wide range of successful events from casual luncheons to elaborate weddings. Just prior to joining the Cooper & Cooper team, she worked in residential property management and leasing, providing her with a unique perspective into the apartment rental process. Kate prides herself on her careful attention to detail and ability to understand her clients’ needs as if they were her own. She now enjoys calling Williamsburg, Brooklyn, home, and spends her spare time exploring different pockets of NYC, Long Island, and Upstate New York.
I have just signed a lease for my new apartment and had the most amazing experience thanks to Kate Grumet. She was amazing from the beginning – we had a long phone conversation about what I wanted in the apartment, how the search process would work, the documents I needed, etc. She then brought me on multiple tours showing me the best of the best apartments with all the specifics I desired. She responded to emails, texts, and phone calls immediately. She went above and beyond to be flexible, calmed my worries and made me feel confident I'd find the place I was looking for... which I did! My friends have used her too and had an equally amazing experience. I recommend that everyone use Kate!

My roommate and I recently worked with Kate Grumet by recommendation of a colleague who she had helped with finding an apartment in the past. She was very energetic, organized, and receptive to our needs... Ultimately she was able to show us many great options that suited our needs and we were able to find an apartment that we are happy with... I would recommend this company, and specifically Kate, if you are looking for a no hassle experience with a bright and honest agent.

We worked with the fantastic Kate Grumet from Cooper & Cooper to find our apartment in Brooklyn. She (and everyone we encountered at C&C) was professional, informative, available, patient and proactive. We weren't sure if having a realtor was necessary before we started this process, but Kate made our search so much easier than it would have been and with her help we were able to get our top apartment! I would highly recommend Cooper & Cooper to anyone looking to brave the world of apartment searching in NYC. You don't have to do it alone!

I really enjoyed my experience with Cooper & Cooper. Kate was a pleasure to be around and showed me a variety of options well within my budget. She helped me find an awesome studio at a great price, and in just 2 days I had my lease signed. Kate was very responsive to emails/text messages and had every appointment organized, which made the search easy. Very happy with the outcome and would definitely recommend this firm!

Kate Grumet was a pleasure to work with! She was very professional and made sure that I only saw places that were within my parameters. She is very knowledgeable about the application process and how to make sure you get approved. I would definitely use her services again!

I inquired through Cooper & Cooper's website and they followed up with me instantly. I was paired with Kate Grumet. As painful and stressful as apartment hunting is, Kate alleviated all those worries and prepared me for a seamless apartment tour and application process... Kate was very enthusiastic and transparent. After one conversation with her, I already trusted her with my search... In short, I had an extraordinary experience with Kate. The process was efficient and Kate was there for me every step of the way. Most of the communication was done through email and she always responded immediately. She made sure to be very clear and concise with her advice and instructions as well. I would recommend Cooper & Cooper and especially Kate!
