We want you to end up in the right house, AND the right town. After all, it is about LIFESTYLE, not just real estate. Hear directly from our clients about why our Town-First approach works.

Suburban Jungle has been an outstanding resource for my family twice. We could not be more relieved with the exceptional care we received in our most recent transition. Our realtors were so knowledgeable and high touch. They managed out of state constraints and a long wishlist. I was happy with our new home, but now that we are moved in, I’m falling in love. What a lovely way to transition to a beautiful new community?! There should be no hesitation from anyone to try SJ. Be informed and rest assured you are working with experts!

It was great working with Barbara at Suburban Jungle to learn more about the Boston-area suburbs. With limited knowledge of the area coming into the housing search, Barbara helped us learn more about each town and connected us with superb realtor referrals to help us find a good fit. As first-time buyers, we’d highly recommend working with Suburban Jungle to explore the region and find the right town and home.
02:23 07 Jul 23
Numerous people had mentioned Suburban Jungle to me, but I was skeptical. However, I'm so glad that I contacted them. I worked with Robin and she recommended some towns that I was unfamiliar with. Turns out, she had a good intuition because she set us up with a local agent in one of those towns, we did the town tour, and just purchased a home in one of the towns she suggested that was not on our original search criteria. Thanks Robin and Suburban Jungle team!
14:15 06 Feb 23
What an incredible resource! My partner and I went into the process of finding the right suburb completely unprepared and overwhelmed. Then we found Suburban Jungle and Robin. I think we'd still be lost and confused was it not for this service. We got matched with the most fantastic real estate agents who gave us incredibly thorough town tours which resulted in us closing on our dream home this past January. We love where we landed and I think Suburban Jungle really contributed to our successful search.
02:40 03 Feb 23
I love Suburban Jungle! Eleanor was so helpful in suggesting neighborhoods to explore, connecting me to great agents, and making sure the process wasn’t so overwhelming. I started really early because I didn’t know where to begin, and so glad I did, because it helped on jump on the right opportunity when it was fleeting. Definitely recommend!

We are a growing family looking to get out of city life and move to the suburbs, but the question of where was always the stressor. Thankfully we found this service through a mom group and was able connect with Allison Levine to learn more and for her to learn about us. The first agent she connected us with in NJ was amazing! She gave us a tour of what each town offers in regards to homes, activities, shops, community events and more so that we can see if these areas fit what we’re looking for. We fell in love with the areas but we eventually had to go back to the drawing board because the commute wasn’t going to work. Alli then referred us to another agent on Long Island who was able to help us find our perfect home. Alli was there to check in with us throughout our process! All in all, it was great! If you want to move but not sure to where, this is the service for you! It’s brilliant!! Best part is, it’s all free!

We called on Suburban Jungle to help guide us with our move from Manhattan to San Francisco. We weren’t sure if we wanted to move to the city or to a suburb. Pam Goldman was so warm and helpful and provided lots of support and insight along the way. When we decided to stay in the city, she referred us to a wonderful agent who helped us buy a house. I recommend this service for anyone who is moving and wants a reliable and trustworthy advisor.

My family moved from New Jersey up to Boston pretty suddenly for a job opportunity. We knew we wanted to buy a home but we didn’t know the area. After a lot of research I thought we were set on target towns, but a colleague recommended suburban jungle. I figured we’d give it a shot since it wouldn’t cost anything, and after working with Barbara we confirmed the area we were targeting was a good fit for what we wanted, but we were also recommended a town we hadn’t considered. We were matched with an agent in that town, and after a day of touring the town and some houses I knew that’s where I wanted us to live. We saw a house a few weeks later and were up against 6 offers, and our offer was accepted in part because of the relationships our agent has and her expertise in the market. We couldn’t be more excited about moving into our new house!
00:04 15 Oct 22
Have had such a fabulous experience with Barbara and the folks at Suburban Jungle! My husband and I were moving to the Boston area in December 2020. We used the Suburban Jungle website to help narrow the towns we wanted to consider on the North Shore for renting. When we were ready to buy, in summer 2022, Barbara recommended a couple of great agents to work with. We went with Maura Allard, who has been a FAB real estate agent. Maura knows the North Shore and brought together a team of folks to support our journey to buying our first home. Maura is incredibly responsive, and gives it to you straight - exactly what you need in an agent. We wouldn't have found her and the incredible town of Salem without Suburban Jungle - so very appreciative!!
12:23 31 Aug 22
Suburban Jungle was an amazing resource when we were trying to decide which town to live to move to. We are originally from several states away and knew very little about the area. SJ made it so easy and stuck with us throughout the entire process, even after the move was made!
19:02 18 Aug 22
By the time we were in touch with Suburban Jungle, we had already begun our search and were even working with a realtor in one of the areas we were considering. Jodi was flexible and willing to limit her involvement to the areas where we weren’t already represented. She provided helpful insights, guidance and validation around the towns we were considering, and helped us zoom in on a couple of specific areas. She was quick to respond with comprehensive answers and suggestions to our questions.Suburban Jungle refers you to local realtors who operate independently of them. This is a great structure because they’re able to freely offer advice in a way realtors can’t, and the realtor pays for the referral so there’s no cost to the client.Of course, this means Suburban Jungle can’t totally control the experience you have with the realtors. For us this was sort of a mixed bag — for example, one of the realtors they referred me to never called me back after 2 attempts. But Suburban Jungle was always responsive and helpful and willing to get involved where necessary to move things along.In the end, we did end up buying through them, at a very difficult time in the market — so I guess the proof is in the pudding. We’d gladly recommend Suburban Jungle to other families considering relocation.
17:16 07 Aug 22
We worked with Pam on analyzing the different parts of the Bay Area and she was suuuper helpful with ideas. It's a really comforting relationship in what can be a stressful search.
15:53 02 Aug 22
Suburban Jungle is a great resource for those not sure where they want to move. My husband and I worked with Alli, who spent a long time listening to our wishlist for our first home and town. She asked us questions that we hadn't initially thought about but were important to consider. She was extremely helpful and put us in contact with people living within the towns to hear more about life there. She also set us up with great agents in the short list we came up with after our first call. We just moved into our first home last week thanks to the help of Alli and Suburban Jungle!
18:00 11 Jul 22
Suburban Jungle is an awesome resource! My husband and I started working with our strategist, Alli, who talked with us all about what were looking for when we move, what we want in a town, etc. She suggested great towns and set up tours for us. We landed on two areas after the fun tours! The brokers Alli set us up with were also awesome and the interesting details about each town she shared was so thoughtful and useful! Overall, Suburban Jungle was great but Alli was and still is beyond helpful! She made our experience really awesome!
02:01 27 Jun 22
Moving from Lancaster, pa to a NYC commutable city in New Jersey was overwhelming! Using Suburban Jungle helped us narrow down to a few towns that checked our boxes. The tours were invaluable! Getting to know each town by a local gave us a feel for all of the small and personal details you just can’t get from googling! We finally narrowed down to the perfect town and Suzanne Veninata was our representative. We LOVED her! This market was not an easy one to navigate. She was like our therapist, realtor, and friend all in one. She fought for us every step of the way. Can’t speak highly enough!Great experience all around and would definitely recommend!
12:12 16 Jun 22
I am writing this review for Melissa Schneider at Suburban Jungle in Florida. Melissa has been amazing to work with - she’s a true professional with a easy going and friendly personality to match. Soon after we established contact, I got on a call with her and she instantly made me feel supported and relieved my anxieties about considering a new hometown several thousand miles away. Having made the move to Florida herself many years ago, she was very patient answering all my questions and always followed up afterwards if there were anything she couldn’t completely answer. In addition to her personal insights in the S Florida market, Melissa was able to take me on a ‘walking tour’ (on email) of the neighborhoods we were interested with details that only a local would know. She even gave us tips on things to do/places to go while visiting Miami with young children. I strongly recommend Melissa to anyone looking at the South Florida market - she’s truly the best!!
18:55 25 May 22
We were moving from a totally different area of the country and didn't have any friends or family in our new area to give us intel on the cool/affordable/safe towns. We really had no idea where to start. Suburban Jungle connected us with an expert in the area who interviewed us to help us match our lifestyle and budget with some prospective towns. She then connected us to realtors in those areas who helped us further narrow our search and stuck with us while we hunted for the perfect home during a really tough market. At first I didn't believe this service could possibly be free, but it is! Highly recommend.
16:27 11 May 22
We loved Suburban Jungle. They connected us with many great realtors and towns. Allison Levine is the best
20:11 03 May 22
Jodi at Suburban Jungle was an amazing resource for us when we decided we were ready to leave the city. All we knew was that we wanted to find a good school district for special needs, and Jodi was quick to connect us with very knowledgeable realtors. She was also very informed about the community feel of each neighborhood, which helped us narrow down our choices. We had no idea where to begin when we first started this process, and looking back, I'm so glad we started with Suburban Jungle!
01:12 08 Apr 22
I highly recommend working with Suburban Jungle when looking to buy a house outside of the city. Their team is super helpful, and the realtors they connect you with are so knowledgable about their communities, incredibly kind and helpful in teaching about the home-buying process, and are so great at navigating the crazy housing market.
18:28 07 Apr 22
It was a great experience working with Melissa from Suburban Jungle. I read her story on Suburban Jungle and immediately felt connected to her. She is very professional and compassionate. She always checked on us through our entire journey of finding our new community and home. She is also very knowleagable and has great information about South Florida communities. Melissa and Suburban Jungle helped us find not only our own new home but our new community. She had great recommendations of true professionals for every step of the process. In today’s tough market we got exactly what we wanted, great community, neighborhoood, amazing schools and our beautiful home. Thank you so much Melissa.
22:06 30 Mar 22
We used Suburban Jungle in our move to the Philadelphia suburbs, and Jodi was such a great resource for us! We were moving to be closer to family, but were not very familiar with the details of each suburb. Upon telling Jodi our preferences, she was able to list out and discuss the details of each neighborhood - from proximity to Philly, school reputation, demographics, etc. She also connected us with a few brokers, one of whom we ended up using to ultimately buy our new home in Lower Merion! Thank you again for all of the help Jodi!!
13:28 30 Mar 22
Such an amazing experience. I don't think we could have navigated Westchester County without Suburban Jungle and will, without reservation, be recommending them to anyone looking for a home in the NYC area.
22:16 22 Mar 22
We explored some different communities on our own prior to working with Suburban Jungle, and the experiences could not be more different. We loved working with Suburban Jungle - they asked us questions about what we valued - activities, lifestyle, family plans, what type of community we'd like to live in/near, commutes, style of housing, price points, etc, and provided us with links and information we couldn't find elsewhere about different towns and neighborhoods. We then explored neighborhoods and towns with very knowledgeable agents who talked to us about schools, shopping, activities nearby, showed us what types of houses we could get at our price points. What we loved most about it is that is was simple, tailored to us, we really feel the person we worked with at Suburban Jungle listened to our feedback, was very accessible, and made additional suggestions based on our feedback, such that we were able to find the perfect community for us - we've lived in our town for almost a year now, and found the perfect house and area that we were looking for. We also loved touring the towns with the agents - we really felt we were able to have a good understanding of what each town offered, what was nearby, and it helped us really determine what was essential for us. We could not be happier or more pleased with our decision to work with Suburban Jungle or their agent in finding us the perfect home! Thank you Alison and Heather!!!!
19:09 19 Mar 22
We worked with Pamela Goldman in the Bay Area to help us find the right area to move to, having been away from the region for many years. She connected us with several parents in the neighbourhoods we were considering which was invaluable to know first hand experience about the local schools and community. She also connected us with Rebecca and Karen at Sereno - the two best real estate agents we’ve ever worked with. They worked tirelessly for us, showing us countless houses and, in the end, helped us secure an amazing home before its first open house. We can’t thank them and Suburban Jungle enough!
23:48 19 Feb 22
Working with Robin Hoberman at Suburban Jungle was instrumental to our town and home search. She truly helped us narrow down the towns that could be a fit. She made a very stressful process a bit less overwhelming and manageable. I recommend Suburban Jungle to anyone considering moving to the suburbs. All of the local agents are amazing as well. Super knowledgeable and a delight to work with.
22:01 06 Jan 22
We had an amazing experience with Suburban Jungle and our consultant, Alli Levine. Within 10 minutes of speaking to her about what my wife and I were looking for in a community, she recommended we look at the town we ultimately ended up moving to. She was a pleasure to work with and also referred us to a great realtor that we ended up using. Would recommend anyone looking to leave a city for the suburbs to use Suburban Jungle.
23:37 06 Dec 21
Erika and everyone at suburban jungle was extremely helpful! We just purchased our first home and truly couldn’t have done it without them. Recommend 100%
22:10 03 Dec 21
I had a terrific experience working with Alli Levine at Suburban Jungle. She helped my family narrow down our choice of towns quickly, and all of her advice was spot on. We loved the realtor she recommended and we ended up buying the first house we saw. Even after we were in contract on our home, Alli went above and beyond to provide helpful information, including putting me in touch with a friend who lives in our new town, who quickly became my first friend in the area! I highly recommend Alli to anyone who is looking to relocate to the suburbs.
15:46 29 Nov 21
Pamela Goldman was incredibly helpful in my family's move from San Francisco to the East Bay. We found Suburban Jungle through a mom's group and can't believe such a perfect service existed and for free! Pamela took the time to get to know our family, our budget, our concerns, etc. She also asked insightful questions to help us prioritize what our needs were. She also was an unexpected source of support while we waded through a very difficult Real Estate market (Bay Area). We are so thrilled with where we landed and are so grateful that Pam helped us get there! If you are in California, I highly recommend taking advantage of this amazing service. Especially in a market like California where the real estate agents are hyperlocal it's so nice to find good agents you can trust if you are looking at several different areas. Thank you Pam and the entire Suburban Jungle team--you've made us so much more confident in our choice on where to raise our children.
17:26 24 Nov 21
Suburban Jungle helped us change our lives! When we decided to look at neighborhoods in South Florida, considering a potential move from New York City, we got in touch and Melissa made time to help us plan a quick trip to look around. She was an indispensable resource, putting us in touch with local realtors who understood their quickly-changing markets and went above and beyond to help. In addition to helping us figure out what area would work best for our family, Melissa provided moral support, interior design advice and even introductions to locals who could give us even more advice! I don’t think we would have been able to accomplish pulling off a cross-country move in less than six months without all of this support. We are so happy that we made it happen and absolutely love living in Florida!
19:18 22 Nov 21
Suburban Jungle was an incredible resource for us as we began our homeownership search. We weren’t quite sure where to start looking but our Strategist asked all of the right questions and quickly put together recommended areas to review and a list of local real estate agents. Suburban Jungle’s consistent follow-up and flexibility as we explored lots of towns and asked lots of questions was invaluable. I highly recommend their free service for people looking to make the big leap from City life to the suburbs.
04:36 19 Nov 21
We had a great experience with Suburban Jungle. We dealt with Erika Ades who is very knowledgable and answered all our questions. We will definitely recommend her and this service to others!
00:29 04 Nov 21
Their help to navigate the surroundings of New York City was priceless to us. We had long, nuanced conversations into what was important to our family, and what communities would fit better our needs. If you see yourself lost on where to even start looking, check with them, after the first call you will feel that you have now a compass in hands.
21:19 01 Nov 21
Incredibly helpful as we knew nothing about NYC suburbs. Helped us narrow down towns and saved us a ton of time and hassle. All agents were wonderful
21:13 29 Oct 21
We worked with Suburban Jungle to relocate from the Bay Area to the Philly suburbs. It was a great experience since we had no knowledge of the area. They worked with us to tailor the areas to target based on our living style, budget for a home, and commute to work. It was an invaluable service that we continue to leverage well after our move!
13:02 05 Oct 21
I am so pleased that I reached out to Suburban Jungle last year. My family knew we were ready for a move to the suburbs (and more space), but had no idea which towns were a good fit for us, or even how to go about finding this out. We spoke with Barbara so many times throughout our search and she gave us such great advice and information about nearby towns. And always great food and ice cream recommendations :), not to mention a referral to a stellar real estate agent! We are in the process of closing on a house now and we are so excited to explore our new town.
16:39 04 Oct 21
We had a wonderful experience with Suburban Jungle over the last few years! Pam regularly checked in and always sent us the latest news and events for the towns we were interested in which really helped us narrow our search. Connecting with real moms in the area was great too and they set us up with our real estate agent who was fantastic. 5 stars for this team!
03:48 01 Oct 21
We recently moved from the west coast to the Boston area and trying to figure out where we wanted to live was a daunting task. We found Barbara at Suburban Jungle and it made the whole process SO much easier. She suggested towns to look at and provided amazing realtors for each community. She consistently checked up on us along the way and was always there if we needed anything. We are just about to close on a home in a town we love and Suburban Jungle helped get us there. Highly recommend using their services if you aren't sure what town or community you want to live in. They really help navigating finding your perfect community.
14:29 30 Sep 21
Was very helpful in info before our move to Boston, giving intros to the surrounding area and in touch with multiple agents. All recommendations were spot on and has really made our move as smooth as it could possibly be!
18:53 29 Sep 21
I worked with Melissa through Suburban Jungle and had a great experience. She introduced me to two realtors on really short notice (3-4 days!), And they were both friendly and knowledgeable. We ended up closing on a home 7 days later! Melissa was also super helpful with vendor recommendations after we made the move. Everything worked out so smoothly and we are enjoying getting to know our new community!
15:31 27 Sep 21
Suburban Jungle introduced me to neighborhoods I didn't even consider and connected me to the most extraordinary realtor. In process of buying now and really happy with the home and location.
17:04 21 Sep 21
We got very helpful tours and insights into a number of towns and ultimately were matched with an incredibly skilled and experienced realtor who really got our family and what we were looking for. We could not be happier with the town we chose and the amazing house we got. Highly recommend Suburban Jungle.
01:03 21 Sep 21
In a very difficult market, it was a pleasure to work with Allison and her team at suburban jungle. Allison is super professional, extremely responsive, and was able to quickly zero in on the areas that met my criteria. The team of real estate agents that work with Suburban Jungle are also top-notch, and I felt like I was well taken care of each step of the way.
12:55 19 Sep 21
It was so awesome to work with Sarah Roggie. I was fully overwhelmed by the prospect of looking for homes and trying to find a neighborhood that would work for my family and me. She listened to all my crazy considerations and really took them into account when she made suggestions. She set us up with multiple realtors that were very helpful as we tried to get a handle on the market. We searched for 6 months before we found the right home for us and she was consistently checking in throughout the process to make sure we were on the right track. I can't recommend her and Suburban Jungle enough!
19:18 04 Sep 21
We had a very good experience working with Alli. She was a good listener and willing to work with us until we found a good fit. Generous with her time and quick to respond, I would recommend SJ and her to anyone looking to transition into moving out of a city and exploring places.
19:38 24 Aug 21
We had a great experience with Suburban Jungle! Eleanor took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for. We were considering a big move and trying to find a suburb that was a perfect mix of urban/suburban. She gave us some great suggestions of towns to check out and also told us some fun events that were going on while we were checking out the towns. She helped make the process of finding our perfect town fun and connected us with several realtors in the area. We couldn't be happier with where we ended up! I highly recommend reaching out to Suburban Jungle if you're thinking of making a move out of the city!
20:33 12 Aug 21
Allison was super helpful narrowing down our aimless search into something actionable. We are lucky to have had her as a resource!
14:19 12 Aug 21
My wife and I worked with The Suburban Jungle Group, specifically with team member Jodi Bloom, during the process of purchasing our first home (which we just completed last week!). Jodi saw to it personally that my wife and I were matched up with the perfect realtor for us, one who knew the areas in which we were looking to buy, as well as would get to know us and what is important to us. Jodi made that happen, and we believe it was unlikely we could have come upon the perfect realtor for us without Jodi's help. Jodi also took the time and energy to reach out to us throughout the whole process and check in - and we so appreciated that extra kindness and professionalism. I would say for anyone who is considering moving, it is a must to start with The Suburban Jungle Group, and if it's possible to request Jodi Bloom, I would go right ahead and say make working with her a priority! Working with her felt more like working with family, right off the bat, and you will be so glad that you did.
19:04 11 Aug 21
Alli Levine and Suburban Jungle were great. Immediately responsive, understanding of our situation and needs, and hit the nail on the head right away. The first town Alli sent us to was the perfect fit, and she connected us with a broker that also understood our situation and helped us move quickly on a great house.Hugely helpful from start to finish.
13:03 10 Aug 21
Working with Suburban Jungle has made the home buying experience a good one. My strategist has helped me consider areas I might not have and connected me with other knowledgeable people along the way. I've learned so much about the process, some real estate terminology (so I'm not surprised), and just overall being confident in my decision.Also, now that I’ve officially purchased my first home, I’m so happy I had Suburban Jungle on my team. Now it’s time to settle in and make it mine. Thank you for making a program like this available for a homebuying novice like myself.
22:16 09 Aug 21
We would highly recommend Suburban Jungle for anyone that is searching for their suburban hometown. Eleanor was extremely helpful, informative and also suggested a town where we ended up moving (and are really enjoying!) as well as a great broker (Jennifer Greenberg). She definitely understood what we were looking for.Eleanor also checked in regularly throughout the process to see how everything was going. Overall great experience!
01:24 08 Aug 21
Allison Levine was the best - was with us every step of the way. And she also found us a broker that found us a home! thank you so much.
14:53 06 Aug 21
Barbara and Suburban Jungle are worth their weight in gold. Barbara was invaluable and critical to our next home search in Boston. We would still be googling and trying to narrow our search if not for the insights, expert knowledge and connections Barbara provided. I could not have imagined a smoother, stress free process. Getting connected with top notch realtors both for the purchase of our new home and sale of our condo eliminated so much stress and worry. We are exceedingly grateful for all of the support. Thank you!
13:22 05 Aug 21
Allison was so helpful in narrowing down our search of communities in Westchester! We never would have looked at the town we ended up in if it weren’t for her guidance. We are so grateful! She checked in with us regularly and we always knew she was available for any questions/ advice. We’d recommend her and suburban jungle to anyone navigating the jump to the suburbs.
11:22 29 Jul 21
Working with Suburban Jungle was fantastic. They offered us enormous time, insight, specific and personal guidance, as well as connecting us with locals who could answer even more detailed questions. They set us up with great local realtors who knew the market and successfully navigated us through it (during a really competitive time). Erika's advice to us was spot on, and we wound up finding a home in the perfect town for us - the town she had first recommended. So grateful to have worked with them. Can't recommend highly enough.
17:42 20 Jul 21
Eleanor and her team at Suburban Jungle were incredible to work with during our first home buying experience. They were extremely friendly, informative and reliable. It was comforting to know that we were in the best hands throughout the entire process. Highly recommend!
17:17 06 Jul 21
Allison was an amazing resource and helped us find a perfect fit!
19:40 02 Jul 21
I worked with Suburban Jungle for the better part of a year. From identifying towns and personalized consultations with Barbara in Boston, to connecting us with a realtor who helped us close on a house 3 weeks after arriving in Massachusetts from Arizona, Suburban Jungle helped me transform my scattered cross-country moving plan into a reality! I’m so glad I came across their company online and would recommend them to anyone considering a major relocation.
19:39 01 Jul 21
We started our home search in July of 2020 and weren’t sure where to turn. A friend suggested suburban jungle and we’re so happy we listened. The beginning was a little rocky since we didn’t mesh well initially with one of their strategists but they quickly contacted us to resolve the issue and connected us with Alli who was wonderful. Through Alli we met Shari Porter who ended up being our local agent in Rockland. Shari is absolutely fantastic! We’re over the moon to share that we are currently under contract on our first home. Thank you Shari and Suburban Jungle for holding our hand throughout this entire process.
13:32 29 Jun 21
Great experience! Thank you Annie and Suburban Jungle, will recommend!
02:21 29 Jun 21
This team helped us narrow down our target list of suburbs and, more importantly, connected us to two fantastic realtors who helped us find a great home. All at no cost to us!If it seems too good to be true, it's because they have found a really creative way to support home buyers and connect them with high quality agents in the target communities.I have already recommended several friends to this company and will continue to do so!
15:48 16 Jun 21
We reached out to Suburban Jungle when we couldn't decide where to live... my husband worked in the South Bay, but I worked in the City... and we had no connections to a real estate professional. We scheduled a 45-minute meeting with Pamela Goldman, she was very professional, knowledgeable, and really took the time to understand our background and desires. She was open and flexible and gave us a few pointers for the South Bay. We spent a half day touring a South Bay suburb and realized it wasn't for us... so Pam connected us with a real estate agent in San Francisco who was a perfect fit for our family/personality. It took a little over a year, but we have found the perfect house, right in the heart of the Inner Sunset/near Golden Gate Park, and couldn't be more pleased with our experience. I would highly recommend Suburban Jungle for those inquisitive of leaving the City, or who need a good real estate agent match / justification for staying in the City. Pam stayed connected with us throughout the process to ensure we were experiencing positive interactions and confidence with our decision to stay in the City. Thanks, Pam!
03:21 10 Jun 21
We could not have bought our house without the help of the realtors we were paired with from Suburban Jungle. The realtor we purchased with was fantastic, and knew the market, builders, everything you needed to know to make a wise decision.

They will absolutely give you the best chance at winning your dream home.

Working with Suburban Jungle to find our new home turned out to be the best choice we could have made. Figuring out where we wanted to be was daunting and they helped us do that research and narrow down our search to a few towns that fit our criteria. They set us up with an excellent real estate agent to help us find the perfect home (amid a pandemic, no less!) and we could not be happier with where we ended up! Thank you Suburban Jungle (Erika!)!

I can’t say enough good things about Ali at Suburban Jungle NYC and Vanessa our local realtor through Suburban Jungle. Buying a home during the pandemic with a toddler was pretty stressful and they made the process fun and actually enjoyable. We weren’t sure where we wanted to live and they guided us through many potential neighborhoods and helped answer every question we had. And we had a lot ha. They supported us in probably the craziest buying market and were always there when we started to feel like we’d never find something. We wound up finding the perfect house and honestly have them to thank. Cannot recommend them enough!!

My wife and I recently moved from NYC to Princeton, NJ and Robin from Suburban Jungle was incredibly helpful in narrowing down where we wanted to live, as well as introducing us to valuable contacts, such as our real estate agent.

My husband and I knew we were ready for the NY suburbs but had no idea where to start. As foreigners we had very little knowledge of areas outside of the city and were overwhelmed with the choices. Allison was just what we needed! In our first phone call she got to know us - what our priorities were, if we had any anchors to any particular areas, what schools we were considering for our kids etc... and recommended several areas she thought we'd be well suited to. She then put us in touch with several realtors in those areas to arrange tours. The area we settled on it turns out was the one she later told us that she could definitely see us in - great instincts and such a breadth of knowledge of the vast suburbs in the tristate area. Allison was incredibly helpful from the start right up until signing the contract on our home, and beyond. We are so grateful to her and highly recommend her and the Suburban Jungle team.

We worked with Allison and she was super helpful! After hearing our needs, she guided us through the process of picking suburbs to explore and then connected us with a wonderful real estate agent who gave us expert tours of the towns we were interested in. Allison was really patient and knowledgeable, and Suburban Jungle has wonderful resources about every suburb. We'd highly recommend working with Allison and the SJ team!

We worked with Allison Levine at the very beginning of our process of exploring many different communities in NJ. She helped educate us on the various towns, put us in contact with many local market brokers who were all great fits, and ultimately saw us through to a successful closing. High recommended.

We have had the most amazing experience with Melissa, and flawless search for our new home by the agent we were matched with.It was hands down the quickest we could ever think of getting a house and a neighborhood of our dreams.After initial conversation and telling we would like to get a house within next 2 months, I thought someone would laugh it off.Have you seen the market in FL nowadays?!?Real estate gets sold before it’s even posted anywhere. It’s a seller’s market, but that also means the inventory is low, the prices are high, the bidding wars are on. That’s when the great agent with knowledge of the game steps in! Of course, we could have found a thousand of agents to represent our interest. But ours was just above and beyond. I truly believe in suburban jungle they do a great work on selecting and hiring top notch agents, who also care about your experience.Melissa always called and texted to check on us. She was always up to date on any new developments, and followed our journey throughout the whole process. Mind you, we were buying from out of state, never met the woman (but planning to change that soon), and I felt like I knew her for years.Fast forward, here we are enjoying our most amazing home in the most amazing community! Melissa was SO spot on when she heard about our lifestyle and preferences, and said “I think this would be perfect for you!”. Of course we looked at few other places and various counties even. But Melissa knew even before we did, that this place is “perfect for us”.That’s what I called a pro!I’d like to add, there are many companies who try to sell, up-sell and oversell, and as soon as they get their money, they don’t care. Melissa is genuinely involved from start to finish and even after. From what I could tell, she receives satisfaction while helping people find their happiness in a new home.Bravo and thank you so so much Melissa! 👏🏼

I so appreciated Suburban Jungle’s insight, assistance and patience as we navigated a long town and house search process. We ended up in an area and town we wouldn’t have considered but feel is perfect for our needs! We’ve connected with various agents in their network in towns all around NYC and only had positive experiences. Best of all for a consumer - this is a free service! Don’t hesitate to reach out, even as an added layer of insight and advice in your town and home search process!

Robin Hoberman was great to work with! She helped us focus our search as we are making the move from Brooklyn to the suburbs. She has been a wealth of knowledge and she's continues to be my go-to person whenever I have questions!
17:52 29 Apr 21
Worked with Alli from Suburban Jungle. Helped us really explore different neighborhoods and figure out which place really fit our vibe. Then connected us with AWESOME agents and eventually helped us find a home! Great to have a point person to circle back and help us reflect on our experience and help coordinate everything. Recommend them to everyone!
02:21 28 Apr 21
I am so grateful that I found Suburban Jungle! When moving from NYC to CT, I was so focused on finding the right house - not necessarily the right town. When we moved from CT to MA, I found Suburban Jungle - working with an expert strategist to help us understand different towns and neighborhoods was such a different experience. From there, we were connected with a fabulous agent to find the right house in one of our top towns. Even though the market right now is wild, she was with us every step of the way - and we have found our dream home!
12:44 27 Apr 21
We worked with Robin Hoberman on and off for 3 years. She set us up with tours in multiple towns in NJ and in queens. She sent us information on all the towns and was always available if we had questions or needed more information. I can’t even believe she had the patience to keep working with us! Our parameters changed a lot since we originally were looking for a multi family home in nj, then a single family, the a multi family in queens and then finally, we found our single family home in nj. I highly recommend working with her. She is a wealth of information and knows so much about towns in nj, nyc, westchester and Long Island!
21:04 21 Apr 21
When we moved from San Francisco to NY, we did not know which town would suit us best. Suburban Jungle helped us figure out the towns that we would like and connected us with an agent that was able to get us the house we wanted in a sought after location. I would highly recommend Suburban Jungle to anyone relocating from a city!
16:56 19 Apr 21
I worked with Lauren Wright regarding potential relo to Dallas, Texas. Lauren informative, professional, and very responsive. She referred me to a fantastic real estate agent, who showed me several homes in different neighborhoods that fit my needs. I highly recommend Lauren!
12:53 16 Apr 21
I’ve lived in the same 20 mile radius my entire life so the idea of moving to another state terrified me! I had heard of Suburban Jungle through a friend so I decided to give them a try. I’m so glad I did! I was connected with Melissa Schneider to discuss South Florida. Melissa took the time to get to know me and what my needs and wants were. She was down to earth, easy to talk to and I felt like she had a real understanding of what I was looking for. She helped me narrow down my search to a few towns. When I visited these towns, they were exactly as she had described. She connected me with realtors who were equally as helpful and professional. Melissa maintained contact with me every step of the way. I truly enjoyed working with her and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Suburban Jungle to a friend!
23:56 02 Apr 21
We really valued our experience with Suburban Jungle. My partner and I knew we wanted to buy a home but didn't know where to start (first time homebuyers!). Our biggest question was "Where?". Barbara was so helpful in understanding what we had envisioned for ourselves and made recommendations based on our geographical and lifestyle preferences. One of the most valuable experiences is being connected to real estate agents who gave us tours of different towns and neighborhoods. It was so helpful seeing neighborhoods come to life in person and helped us decide which towns we wanted to narrow our search in. Barbara was extremely accommodating as we went back and forth on a few towns and was responsive to our changing needs. Though the home buying process is inevitably a stressful (but exciting!) process, having another person to guide us through the process really made us feel like we were making the best decision for us. Thank you Barbara and the rest of the team for your insights and support!
13:57 29 Mar 21
Our Suburban Jungle consultant was knowledgeable, patient and really helped us narrow down our home search. I have no hesitation in recommending the platform for both good quality content and great service.
15:51 28 Mar 21
We had a great experience working with Suburban Jungle. We had a good idea of what towns we were interested in, but even knowing that piece found great value in the partnership. They connected us with realtors that were highly professional and true experts in their field. We’ve had the best experience and look forward to enjoying our new home
21:03 26 Mar 21
My husband and I had such a wonderful experience using Suburban Jungle and in working with our strategist, Robin Hoberman. We have referred this service to several couples thinking about moving out of the city and all have been very happy as well.We first were introduced to Robin several years back when we started to slowly think about life outside of the city. Robin was extremely receptive, informative, and knowledgeable when speaking about towns we should consider based on our suburban wish list. We fell in love with several towns that she suggested we see and we enjoyed working with the realtors that she connected us with in those areas. Robin (and all the individuals we connected with through Suburban Jungle) were always very eager/willing to get on the phone with us to discuss any questions/concerns that we had. In the end we ended up in a town that Robin suggested we consider when we first spoke with her several years back and we could not be more excited!

We were so thrilled to have the help of Suburban Jungle during our home search. My husband and I and our two small children were moving out of NYC and we didn’t know where or how to start looking for a new home as first-time homeowners. Long Island, New Jersey, and most of Westchester County were options but that still left us overwhelmed by the sheer number of towns to consider, and a lot of moving complexities. After our initial conversation, we felt reassured, knowing that we would have a knowledgable and helpful team to guide us through to find the right home in the right town. It was wonderful to talk to someone who could give us specific insight about each location and offer a local’s perspective. Suburban Jungle stayed with us throughout our multiple-year search, including through the shifting market during the pandemic, giving us valuable advice each step of the way, connecting us with great agents, and altering our strategy as needed when we started to narrow the search. It was particularly valuable to have them with us as we continued our search remotely out-of-state and weren’t able to do on-site visits. We ended up with a wonderful agent in Scarsdale who continues to be amazing in helping us settle into our new home and navigate our new town. We’re so excited to have found our ideal home- a perfect fit!

Melissa with Suburban Jungle was amazing! I've relocated previously without SJ and only wish I had them back then. When I came across their services, I had to reach out knowing we were moving . I was connected to Melissa Schneider to discuss south Florida. She was great! Very responsive, knowledgeable about the area and friendly. She provided ins and outs for a number of areas and neighborhoods and connected me with great agents to work with. Even after settling on an area and home, she stayed in touch and provided great recommendations. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
22:06 18 Mar 21
Had a wonderful experience with Suburban Jungle. We started out looking for a place to rent in the NYC suburbs and they were extremely helpful at identifying places that fit out budget and meet our needs. But as the pandemic stretched on, our circumstances changed, and we decided to buy instead. Suburban Jungle was very helpful on this front as well, connecting us with Realtors in all the locations we were considering. We ultimately chose Port Washington, worked with a wonderful realtor, and are now in contract to buy a house. Great experience every step of the way!
20:26 12 Mar 21
Allison Levine has been super helpful in identifying towns for us and connecting us to property agents . She is super responsive and very professional. Overall great experience working with Subarban Jungle.
16:24 11 Mar 21
My family and I had the best experience working with Melissa Schneider and Suburban Jungle! We relocated from NYC to South Florida in the middle of COVID, which was daunting to say the least! She was so helpful throughout the whole process and continued give us so much support when we arrived. Can’t say enough great things about this service!
01:54 19 Feb 21
From start to finish Suburban Jungle helped guide us down the path we wanted but didn't know where we even needed to start. Maya spent the time going through what our family was looking for and listened so she could provide us with the right options. She made great suggestions, was honest and beyond helpful. She paired us up with Shaun who gave us so much of her time and guided us through the process when we found the home we wanted. We are so happy to have worked with both of them! I would highly recommend using Suburban Jungle!
03:23 17 Feb 21
Katie Cranis was the ideal person to work with as we were considering our move from California to Austin. She was able to listen to our list of needs and direct our focus to the most desirable areas to best suit our lifestyle and budget. She helped us weigh our options by providing local insider information that isn’t easy to find with a basic google search. Moving a family can be overwhelming but she helped me feel reassured that we were making the right choices. She connected us with an amazing realtor who has expertise in all areas of Austin and planned a whirlwind scouting weekend. Because of Katie’s help and advice, we had an efficient and productive visit to Austin which resulted in us finding the perfect home. Katie has continued to provide helpful guidance as we are working on transitioning our family to the Austin area and helping our kids settle in with schools, sports and activities. I would highly recommend working with Katie!
23:34 01 Feb 21
Amazing free service. Really helped hone where we should be looking based on multiple factors. They had the info on what was taking me months to piece together. Would highly recommend to anyone

As a first time home buyer, the process can be daunting and overwhelming. Suburban Jungle helped ease my fears and make the process as smooth as possible. Allison L. did an amazing job of helping me find what I was looking for. Not only was she very friendly and personable, she took her time listening to me and finding out what it is I wanted! She matched me with a perfect realtor and I found my first home! I am very pleased with this service and I cannot say enough about Suburgan Jungle. Thank you!
00:23 20 Jan 21
Overall amazing experience with Suburban Jungle! I was between two locations to relocate from NYC. The Suburban Jungle team in both locations was fantastic and helpful from the jump. Their realtor connections were fabulous as well. Would use the service again and recommend to my friends!

Have Questions?

Are all of the services that the Suburban Jungle offers FREE?

Suburban Jungle does not charge its clients for services. We will help you find a new home by putting you in touch with a real estate agent who specializes in properties and areas which you are interested in. Suburban Jungle then receives a referral commission from the real estate agent once you close on your new home.

Wait. Will I save money if I represent myself?

NOPE. It’s that simple. If you actually don’t have a dedicated buyer’s agent, you will most likely lose money because you have no one representing your interests in the transaction. Statistics show that unrepresented buyers pay more for homes than those with buyer representation

How are you different than working with a typical real estate firm?

For starters we ONLY WORK WITH BUYERS. There is no hidden agenda, no inventory we are trying to push. WE work FOR YOU. We also are NOT Real Estate agents trying to sell you anything, ever. We are corporate strategists working for a lifestyle advisory firm, managed by a real estate brokerage firm, whose entire job is to make certain that your best interests are represented – from the start of your search, before you step foot into a house, to post closing when you are trying to find the best paint color. Full Service. Full Disclosure. Our philosophy is that it is easier to upgrade house than to upgrade town. We want you to be sure you love the town before you love your house. Our goal is to make certain you are looking in the right places and asking the right questions. Questions which you may not even have thought to have asked.

Real Estate agents are sales agents. We are not. We employ salaried consultants who understand the dynamics of every part of every potential suburb (HUNDREDS) that you can potentially move to. We don’t have a vested interest in where you end up. We built the business this way so that objective advice is what is paramount to our business.

Do you have your own real estate agents?

ABSOLUTELY NOT. We found that in order to provide truly objective advice and service, we need to separate ourselves. We have sifted through thousands of agents to find the best for our clients, but we need to be able to, at times, pull you away from a deal or send you in a different direction and we wanted no conflicts of interest that would arise if we had agents selling you things on behalf of our company.

How can Suburban Jungle not charge clients a fee?

Traditionally, the seller of the home pays all the commission. As an example, a seller hires their own seller’s agent. They agree to a commission with that agent. That agent then goes out to the real estate community and invites selling brokers to help sell that home, agreeing to split the commission he/she receives.

When one of our clients buys a home with a Suburban Jungle partner agent, that partner agent shares a portion of their commission with Suburban Jungle. The seller does not pay anything extra as our commission agreement is between Suburban Jungle and the buyer’s agent!

In order to receive all of our incredible services, you must work with our highly experienced, curated selection of partner agents to buy a home.

Suburban Jungle has taken the traditional real estate way and turned it on its head. We add invaluable, incredible services that every buyer deserves and truly shouldn’t be making intelligent decisions without. It’s that easy!

What if I already have my own agents?

You might be out of luck…and then again you might ask yourself if you already have great agents…why are you looking for more info? Yep… you just discovered why we truly exist. Because agents SELL, and we EDUCATE. We work exclusively with hand picked and trained agents in each town that our team has curated specifically for the Suburban Jungle experience. Each agent we select is extremely qualified and knows their markets inside and out. While they do not work directly for us so that we can work for YOU and provide truly objective advice… they are in fact part of our team so that we can better guide you. Agents who we don’t communicate with, use our technology and are not trained by our staff are not able to provide the insight we need in order to guide you properly. We also don’t want to step on your agent’s toes if you are currently happy with them. If you would like to work in other areas that your agent won’t cover, or are interested in switching agents we are happy to help!

What if I am working with a relo package from work?

No problem… only thing you need to do is let them know you want all the benefits but want to use our partner agents… ( you need to do this before you start working with us of course! ) and let us know who the relo company is so we can help you make sure all of your benefits are fully in play!
