Tom Cooper, Douglas Elliman broker, dies at 56

Real estate

The 56-year-old man who allegedly jumped from the fourth floor of an Upper East Side rental building Tuesday morning has been identified as Tom Cooper, a real estate broker with Douglas Elliman, who was a tenant there.

The longtime Manhattan resident, California native and UC Berkeley alumnus — as detailed in his brokerage biography — resided in Unit 4A at 18 E. 67th St., according to building records. This apartment is a T2 that he rented in January 2021. He left a suicide note, according to the police on site.

Representatives for Douglas Elliman declined to comment.

During his professional life, Cooper has represented both sellers and buyers in their own real estate transactions. For the latter, the listings portal shows, he recently helped secure an $18.5 million deal for a six-story townhouse, spanning nearly 9,000 square feet, located at 24 W. 10th St., whose big-ticket sale details hit city records on Nov. 1. 15.

“Closed today for $18.5 million!” Cooper wrote on his Instagram profile in a Nov. 10 upload showing several images of the property, which was represented by Ryan Serhant, of Serhant. “Absolutely thrilled for my wonderful buyers who can now call this majestic Greenwich Village brownstone their home. Truly a magnificent home and part of New York City history! »

Serhant did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Sources close to Cooper pointed to this recent transaction as a business victory, but also as his overall charm.

“Everyone is devastated,” a source told the Post. “He was a lovely, charming man. We are all shocked by the news. His sister is currently on her way to New York.

Meanwhile, Cooper represented three sales listings underway at 240 Center St., otherwise known as the Police Building — the downtown Belle-Epoque landmark that served as Manhattan police headquarters until 1973. The Police Building is also where Cooper posed for his final Instagram upload on December 22, standing next to a lighted Christmas tree in the building’s lobby.

There, he represented the listing of filmmaker Meghan Ellison — the daughter of Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison — who is asking $3.7 million for a stunning one-bedroom apartment located under a top-floor dome. StreetEasy shows that the list remains active.

Cooper also represented that unit, 6N, in a combined deal with the adjacent 6M, asking $7.2 million for 3,320 total square feet of living space. (Cooper also separately replaced the 1,550-square-foot Unit 6M, which is asking $3.5 million to sell. That unit and its combination potential also remain active on StreetEasy.)
