A lifelong New Yorker who combines an elite business background with a unique ability to establish dynamic personal connections, Heather Cooper’s diverse set of skills makes her an uncanny fit for the real estate industry.
Heather’s decade-plus background in sales, marketing, and business development includes extensive experience in the financial services sector, where she has worked with retail brokers, large international brokerage firms, and other high net-worth clients. In each of these capacities, Heather has earned a reputation as an innate leader with the business savvy and high-level negotiation skills needed to ensure success for her clients in every transaction. She approaches real estate from a forward-thinking perspective, listening closely to each client’s individual needs, anticipating the best way to fulfill them, and putting in the hard work necessary to deliver top-level results every time.
A natural-born broker, “I love working with people to help them identify exactly what they need,” says Heather. “In financial services I matched companies with investors. In my own life I’m the one who friends rely on to organize dinners and celebrations. Now, I am charged with putting people together with the home of their dreams, or matching buyers and sellers, and there’s nothing I enjoy more.”
Heather is known among buyers, sellers, and landlords alike for her personable nature, enthusiasm, and the ease with which she makes individual connections. A born leader with an unmatched work ethic, she is always willing to go above and beyond to ensure her clients have every possible option available to them. She views a wide range of apartments on a daily basis, and does the due diligence necessary to make sure she is always in tune with what’s happening in the industry on a macro level, as well as inventory specifics on marquee properties throughout New York City.
A resident of the Upper East Side, Heather received her Bachelor of Arts from Baruch College (as well as a paralegal certificate), and an Associate of Arts degree from SUNY Cobleskill. When not mastering New York City real estate, she is equally passionate about yoga, traveling, the beach and volunteering—she is a New York Junior League member and an active participant with Covenant House and New York Cares. Breast cancer is a cause that is especially near and dear to her heart; she raised $6,500 for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in 2012, and plans to surpass that total this year.
