Having built a long and successful career in the hotel industry, a passion for providing excellent service and exceeding her client's expectations is firmly ingrained in the way Kate Simpson does business.
The fast-paced environment of Manhattan residential real estate mirrors that of hotel management in many ways, and working with people from different cultures and backgrounds has given her the ability to juggle multiple priorities, to expect the unexpected and to remain calm under pressure. A true professional, her tenacity to overcome challenges and see things through to the end coupled with a sense of humor make her a strong partner for her clients.
Born in the UK, and having lived and worked there as well as in Germany and Australia, Kate relocated countless times for her career before arriving in New York and realizing that it was a city she wanted to call home on a permanent basis. She knows all too well what it feels like to be looking for a new home, and that 'aha moment' when you finally find the right one.
Kate is fluent in German and is a graduate of Exeter University in the UK, where she studied English Literature before pursuing qualifications in Hotel Management and a Diploma in Business Administration.
Having lived in New York for 11 years, she resides in Hell's Kitchen which enables her to indulge her love of the theater. The effects of her enthusiasm for cooking and eating food, and especially chocolate, are partially mitigated by running marathons, and nobody was more surprised than Kate herself when she took up triathlon and got hooked!
