Kate Grumet

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!

A friend of mine recommended Kate Grumet to us as a real estate agent, and we are incredibly happy that we took that recommendation. Kate was professional, friendly, accessible, and amazingly helpful throughout the entire process. She took our preferences into account and showed us the apartment that we ultimately rented. She made the rental process easier than I imagined possible... Her help didn't end when the deal was closed, however; she helped coordinate our move-in and sent us information about utilities in the area. All told, I unequivocally recommend Kate to anyone looking for a place in New York City. The peace of mind is worth it.

Working with Kate Grumet made my apartment hunt in NYC as painless as possible. She was extremely responsive over both phone and email, and worked tirelessly for us to find the right place while answering all of our many questions. Kate was upfront and truthful about the entire process from the beginning which made working with her incredibly easy. She even managed to negotiate the rent down on the beautiful apartment she found for us! Kate made finding a new home such a positive experience, I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Kate Grumet was a pleasure to work with. She targeted my search exactly to my specified requests, was flexible on showing times to accommodate my work schedule, and was quickly responsive via email on any follow-ups that I had. She is also a good resource for those trying a new neighborhood, as they think through the transition from renting to buying. I would highly recommend Kate to anyone looking for a new home in New York.

I cannot recommend Kate Grumet enough when it comes to finding an apartment! She is professional, thorough, enthusiastic, and an absolute pleasure to work with. My roommates and I were looking for an unconventional space – 4.5 bedrooms and easy commutes to our respective jobs. The apartment she found us was right off the Q and comfortably within our budget. It has EVERYTHING we asked for plus countless amenities like a completely refurbished kitchen with a wine fridge, four full bathrooms, and a washer/dryer in unit. She took the time to sit down with us, and was so familiar with our preferences that this apartment was only the second one we looked at with her and perfect is an understatement... I don't know how she does it, but the entire process was seamless. I can honestly say that I look forward to working with her again! She is amazing at her job and will find you EXACTLY what you're looking for.

My roommate and I were fortunate enough to work with Kate Grumet on our apartment search. Kate was at all times professional and enthusiastic. She made sure to gather all of our documents for the apartment applications early and answer any questions we had along the way. I was particularly impressed with how thorough Kate was. Our initial phone call was not only incredibly informative but also filled with interesting nuggets of wisdom about the housing market in NYC... We decided to push our tour day as close to our work start dates as possible. I was worried about this at first. Luckily, we were in good hands. Kate picked a great selection of apartments and scheduled all our visits for one day. After visiting 12 apartments, drinking lots of water and walking many city blocks, we decided which apartment was our favorite. We submitted our application and the next day we signed the lease and moved in. The entire process was smooth and painless. Not at all as hard as I imagined it would be. Thanks again Kate for all your help!

Moving cross country is probably one of the most stressful things you can go through. Looking for an apartment in New York is another! I definitely underestimated it! A good friend of mine recommended Cooper & Cooper and they did not disappoint! I was lucky enough to work with Kate Grumet who from our very first conversation on the phone made me feel at ease and hopeful that we would find an apartment that we love. Just from that conversation, I knew we were in good hands... She showed me some amazing apartments, I applied for one that I loved and got approved! Kate was a pleasure to work with, was very understanding of our situation and was able to get us an apartment that we love in the neighborhood that I have fallen in love with! I would highly recommend C&C to anyone looking for their next home in NY! Thank you Kate!

I am 1000% thankful for the fact that I ended up with Kate Grumet! I was out of town so I was very nervous to rely on this process from a distance, but when we arrived Kate had a list of AMAZING apartments to look at. At the end I found the PERFECT apartment and she got me the information I needed to apply for the apartment as quickly as possible! Once it came time to sign the lease she handled the fact that I was traveling nearly every day with amazing dexterity... She even went and measured the apartment for me so I could appropriately plan for my furniture! I absolutely know that I would not have been able to do this without Kate and Cooper & Cooper. I would recommend their services to everyone!
