Cate Bauer

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

Cate grew up in Katonah, located in Westchester County, where she attended Katonah-Lewisboro Schools. She then obtained a Bachelors's Degree in just 3 years from the University at Buffalo for Communications & Marketing.

Growing up in the industry, Cate’s passion for real estate began at a young age. It was that enthusiasm that led her to jobs in the industry, being exposed to real estate transactions through her mom, Carine, who has been an agent since 2003 and then working at a full-service real estate company in New York City. 

Cate and Carine joined forces in 2020, founding The Carine and Cate Team at Compass. The team has over $300M sold in real estate transactions. Cate is one of the youngest principal agents at Compass and managed to sell over $25M of real estate in her first year. She then expanded to the New York City market, and now services clients in both uptown Manhattan and Westchester.

She is passionate about interior design and puts this to action at all of the teams' properties. Whether it is a Compass Concierge, staging, or full renovation project, she has the connections to many local contractors and vendors to share with her clients in order to get the project done right.

She communicates well with clients, honing in on their needs. She takes time to get to know her client's lifestyles so she can help them choose the best area, home, and neighborhood. Cate has a wide range of knowledge throughout Westchester & New York City so she is able to help clients navigate their search whether that is in the city or the suburbs. 

Most of all, Cate cares immensely about her clients and treats them all as friends/family. She will go to great lengths to ensure her clients are taken care of. Cate is incredibly patient with her clients and very responsive…one past client even said….“Cate responds to emails and texts so quickly, it's like she's never off-duty.” 

Cate currently resides in Bronxville with her fiancé Matt and their dog Greta. In her spare time, you can find her fine-tuning her practice of Pilates/Barre, cooking up new recipes, spending time with family back in Katonah, or traveling the world.
