What people are saying about Suburban Jungle…

Jane B.

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, 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!!

Meredith I.

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!

Martin G.

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.

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.

Erin

Thanks Heather. We appreciate you pairing us up with excellent and knowledgeable real estate agents. We loved working with Andrea and we are so happy with both our new house and our new Glenview neighborhood.

Vincent D.

Robin is a great listener and knows how to tailor solutions and recommendations for your needs. Professional and polished. She helped us focus in on our goals and needs to help us land in a community that we would love.

Kim L.

Suburban Jungle was an absolutely essential piece to our family finding the right place to call home. Our strategist, Pam, provided an incredible amount of information in an objective way that really allowed us to form our own opinions while being armed with the information we needed to make the right decision.  We had limited to no knowledge of Bay Area towns outside of SF, and Pam's help allowed us to find the perfect fit for our family. They also connected us to an incredible realtor who we enjoyed working with immensely. I cannot recommend SJ enough!

Temi A.

Had a great experience with Pam and her team who look after the Bay Area. They make it all so easy with a very friendly and informed approach. They talked us through a wide range of options, neighborhoods and they knew so much about schools as well which for parents is invaluable information. Can't recommend them enough!

Jennifer Z.

Pamela and her team were amazing. We all know the stress of figuring out where to raise our kids in this crazy expensive but amazing Bay Area. She spent time with us finding out our hobbies passion and what towns we had for options within our budget. She connected us with moms in the towns, agents in the towns to get us looking in the right area with local people who know the scene. Highly recommend you start your search with Suburban Jungle’s Pamela to find the perfect place that suits your life!

Katie K.

We had such a wonderful experience working with Pam in San Francisco. My husband and I were exploring a possible move to a suburb in the Bay Area, after being in the city proper for the last 10 years. We thought we knew the area well after living here for so long, and we'd been eyeing a couple of towns in particular, but after talking with Pam we realized there were some great options we hadn't considered and weren't that familiar with, even after 10 years in the area. She really opened our eyes to other possibilities and got us focused on what's important to us. Through the entire process she was checking in with us regularly to see how things were going. She went above and beyond, sharing tips about lenders and her personal experiences, as well as connecting us with realtors in specific areas that we focused in on. She was always very responsive and eager to help. I can't recommend Suburban Jungle highly enough.

Rebecca D.

Cannot tell you how helpful Pamela in the San Francisco office has been for us and our pending move. Having never been to the suburbs of SF before, it was a daunting prospect and no amount of googling is as helpful as speaking to someone who lives there. Pamela was full of useful information and their downloadable packs on the various suburbs were great. Pamela had advice on everything from commutes, to schools, to useful websites. I can't explain how reassuring it is to have someone on the ground, with children, who understands what we're embarking on. THANK YOU!

Mojgan J.

Suburban Jungle is an incredible resource!!! There is no way that our family of five would have been able to make the move out of San Francisco to the suburbs without their guidance and support. Pam, our lead strategist, was the utmost professional and she really advocated for our best interest and set us up with realtors in different regions, connected me with moms from various areas, and was so available and supportive through the process. I can’t sing the praises of this company enough!!! Thank you to Pam and her amazing team!! We are forever grateful.

Mike J.

We really appreciated the insight from Pamela Goldman, the Head Strategist at Suburban Jungle, for the San Francisco Bay Area. The service is very interesting and unique, as the staff aim to understand your interests and goals for a home and attempts to match you with a specific few regions, some of which you may not already be familiar with. This work all happens before you engage a real estate agent, which is optional after the initial (and, amazingly, free and with no strings-attached) "neighbourhood match" service. We found Pamela to be especially personable, helpful, encouraging, and full of great ideas as we started our home search. We felt her insight was excellent and that she was a wonderful person to discuss our goals with.

Marina G.

We worked with Pam Goldman in SF who was absolutely great. She helped us narrow down our search and connected us with great local families that provided information on the areas we were considering. Pam was on top of our search and really responsive when we decided to change the location of our search. Highly recommend.

Dani F.

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!

Alison J.

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!

Cody O.

My family and I had such a wonderful experience with Suburban Jungle. They spoke to us two years before we were ready to buy a home and were with us throughout the entire process. We were connected to a wonderful realtor who was able to find us a beautiful home in an area we never even knew existed before we started this process. We had personalized service from beginning to end and just closed on our first home. We cannot thank you enough!

Sarah W.

I was so lucky to have found Suburban Jungle. Pam was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the Bay Area. Our realtor was amazing! This area is so competitive, we actually took four house hunting trips and did a lot from a distance. In the end, our realtor found us the perfect house, we didn't even think to look at! He totally "got us" and knew what to look for that would suit our family. Thank you!

Guy B.

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 - 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!

Sarah D.

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.

Scott P.

My wife and I finally decided to branch out of Jersey City and give the single family home a try. Both of us not knowing anything about the surrounding towns we decided to use Suburban Jungle and it was the best decision we could’ve made. The idea of driving from town to town aimlessly to try and learn about an area was daunting. We reached out to Suburban Jungle and matched with Alli who guided us in a few directions based on what we wanted out of the town. It was a great process of visiting each location and then finally landing on the one we fell in love with. The best part of the experience was talking with Alli’s contacts in a specific area to really get a feel of who is living here. We have even made a few friends in the town we are moving too based on this experience. I just wanted to say thanks to Alli for sticking with us and giving us the support we needed when it looked like we may have to extend our lease but were able to find a home in the 11th hour! I would highly recommend this service and Alli!

Michael M.

Allison and her team are truly A+. My wife and I were looking to move from the city and into the suburbs. We were set up with a team of different realtors that were specific to the towns we were interested in. The local knowledge of each of the realtors was exceptional from top to bottom. After some viewings we were fortunate enough to narrow down our search to about two towns. We eventually found a place that we liked and place an offer. We are so thankful to Allison, and her team. They are the best.

Sara D.

Suburban Jungle is an amazing service!  There is no catch.  They help you find the perfect town for you and your family, connect you with wonderful real estate agents (we had an especially great agent for Beacon, NY named David Cross), and are there for you every step of the way.  I 100% recommend this service for anyone looking to move outside of NYC.  I worked with Allison Levine from Suburban Jungle who was awesome!!!

Julie P.

My husband and I worked with Allison Levine for several months and are thrilled to say we are now under contract for our dream house in a wonderful town! We never would have ended up here on our own without going through the Suburban Jungle town search process, and are so glad we made that first phone call to Allison. As first-time home buyers who are used to that 1-bedroom urban life, we felt lost and nervous about figuring out where we could settle down, and Allison was so great in making town recommendations, setting us up with local realtors (including our current agent, who is the epitome of professionalism and a dream to work with), and keeping us on track. She was insightful, communicative, and helpful throughout. Thank you, Allison!

Allison G.

Working with Alli Levine at Suburban Jungle was such an enjoyable experience! It was like having a supportive friend in your corner at all times during one of the biggest chapters of your life. Alli listened to our hopes, wishes, and desires for what we were looking for in a town and compiled a list of possible towns that would interest us. Alli hit the nail on the head with the towns she suggested for us. We toured many of them before deciding on where we wanted to focus our house hunt, but we honestly could see ourselves living in several of the towns we toured. Every agent Alli connected us with in each town was top-notch; they were all knowledgeable, experienced, and relatable! Throughout the process, Alli offered us advice and suggestions while allowing us to bounce ideas/thoughts off of her (at times she was even like a therapist)! She made herself available to talk with us at all times and was always in our corner. My best piece of advice is to use suburban jungle because why wouldn’t you? It’s a free resource with knowledgeable, helpful people looking to help YOU find the perfect town for YOU! We were open-minded during the entire process, and truly took advantage of all that suburban jungle had to offer, and I highly recommend everyone to use them!

Winston L.

Allison and her team were able to put us in touch with a local realtor who not only knew the area but actually lived there!  Our realtor was awesome and incredibly knowledgeable.  She referred us to our real estate lawyer as well as a mortgage broker.  From start to finish we had a very smooth process that was detailed, clearly outlined, and without any headaches.  We have heard horror stories about the home buying process, we had an amazing time getting to know everyone involved in purchasing our home and will be recommending Allison and her team from Suburban Jungle every time.  Thanks again.

Elizabeth D.

Super helpful agency! They make the suburb choice, and home buying process seamless!

TRAVEL AGENTS OF THE SUBURBS - if you've ever used a travel agent, a good one at least, you know how valuable they are. They take the headache out of managing your travel or move. WONDERFUL SERVICE! DREAM BUILDERS! NO REASON NOT TO SEND THEM AN EMAIL! My wife and I have been NYC residents for 10 years. We are transplants from Arkansas so we have zero knowledge about the towns and communities surrounding the city. Yes, we have visited towns here and there but never with intention of moving to these towns or raising our family in these communities. Usually, it was for day parties; so we drove to the house and back to the city. However, my wife and I have 2 children under 2, so we are outgrowing the hamster cages that are NYC apartments. With no friends or family in this area to educate us on where to go; CT, NJ, NY etc, we found ourselves stumped on how to begin narrowing our focus. THERE ARE OVER 600 SUBURBAN TOWNS! Enter Suburban Jungle! While researching towns, schools, neighborhoods, homes, condos, apartments, public transit, taxes, cars...the list keeps growing...WE FOUND SUBURBAN JUNGLE! At first, I was hesitant. HOW DOES THIS WORK? They call you discuss your budget, interests and must haves both out of a home and out of a community. Then they connect you with people in the communities that have inventory that matches your needs. They send you on town tours first... WTF IS A TOWN TOUR? I thought the same. It's just a nice day with a nice person who's trying to get your business showing you the towns they represent. NO CATCH. You get to choose who you work with and what community you want to see. My wife and I connected with an agent in our first community immediately and we ended up purchasing a home with her. THE WHOLE PROCESS TOOK US ONLY 6 WEEKS...but we did see 10 towns across NJ, CT and NY with 4 or 5 different agents. I think we saw 20 homes total. We ultimately circled back to the community and agent we saw on day one. Shout out to Amanda Spatola! THE TEAMS THEY CONNECT YOU WITH IN OUR EXPERIENCE HAVE BEEN TRULY A DREAM TEAM. VERY TRANSPARENT, PERSONABLE, ACCESSIBLE AND HELPFUL. We are first time buyers so transparency and hand holding was necessary and comforting, and we never felt anyone was taking advantage which is a paranoia as a first time buyer. HOW DO THEY GET PAID? I have no idea, but I haven't seen it hit my checkbook HOW USEFUL WILL THIS SERVICE BE? WE COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT THEM After we chose our town and agent Suburban Jungle stayed in contact and just provided support which we are/were so grateful for. They emailed us weekend happening on our new community as well as detailed information about our community. MY WIFE AND I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER AND WE THANK WHATEVER YOU PRAY TO FOR SHOWING US THE PATH TO THIS SERVICE. GIVE THEM A CALL/EMAIL...YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED BIG THANKS TO ALLISON AND HER TEAM AT SUBURBAN JUNGLE

Bridget M.

Allison Levine was terrific and helped us find a wonderful place to live. We are so thankful!

Joseph A.

Their whole team was amazing to work with. Alli is very knowledgeable and gave us great information on so many different neighborhoods. They connected us with awesome realtors who all gave us valuable advice (even if we didn't end up working with them in the long run). We're first time home buyers and they helped make the process a lot less intimidating.

Nicole H.

I am so thankful for Suburban Jungle's assistance in finding an amazing town and leading me towards the purchase of my first home. I loved the extensive PDF insights Suburban Jungle provided on NJ towns, which helped me navigate the schools, commute, and community activities with confidence. I worked with Allison, who was so attentive, kind and patient. She walked me through the home buying process over multiple calls and set me up on tours with very knowledgeable guides, put me in contact with moms in each town, and sent me very helpful articles so I could get a very clear picture of the communities I was seriously considering. I don't know how I could have done this without SJ and Allison.

Adriana S.

Unlike a realtor, suburban jungle will match you with the place (town) and then find you the space (home)! I had been “looking” with an independent realtor for months without making any meaningful progress before a friend introduced me to Suburban Jungle. Within days I had eliminated towns that didn’t match my needs and had narrowed my search. Despite narrowing the search, the agent recommended by suburban jungle found many homes for me to see and now I’m waiting to place an offer. It hasn’t even been 3 weeks yet! I highly recommend suburban jungle!

Gaurav Y

It was fantastic working with Allison. She was able to identify towns for me based on the criteria I set across the tri state area. I looked at many different houses with 3 different agents across 3 states. All the realtors were extremely professional, responsive and patient. As it turned out I settled for a place in NJ!! Many thanks Suburban Jungle!

Mariel G.

My husband and I recently used Suburban Jungle to help us decide what NJ town to move to. From my first call with Alli Levine, it was clear that SJ was a wealth of information. Alli took time to listen to our wants in a town, a house, and a real estate agent. She connected us with other locals in the area. And she set us up with our real estate agent (Jillian Nolan) who was FABULOUS. We are so happy to be newly settled in our home. Thanks so much to Alli and Jillian for helping us along the way!

Emmanuela B.

This service was amazing! Being native Brooklynites we had no clue about the suburbs. Suburban jungle helped us to narrow down our search and connected us with a fantastic realtor. They were super responsive and addressed all our needs. Would highly recommend using them for your move out of the city.

Lindsay D.

Allison Levine at Suburban Jungle was an incredible resource to us as we started the search for our first home purchase. We were previously transplants to NYC, and had no prior knowledge of the suburbs surrounding the city. For us, that meant we were considering 3 different states, and multiple cities in each! Allison got on the phone with us right away and was always available at the drop of a hat for a text, email, or phone call. With her extensive knowledge & perspective, she became a true partner in talking through the pros and cons of each town, each house, and each decision - all in great detail. We laughed, we cried, we had the unique advantage of Allison on our side to help us make sense of it all. Five months after our first call, we are moving into a home we are so excited about. I’d recommend checking out Suburban Jungle and asking for Allison if you are thinking of settling down in any of the NYC burbs.

Naomi Y.

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 Suburban Jungle. Thank you!

Lindsay G.

My family could not be happier with our experience with Suburban Jungle! Everyone we worked with was professional, knowledgeable, and most of all, a lot of fun to talk to. You can tell they not only take pride in their work, they really enjoy it as well. After our first phone call, our wonderful representative Allison recommended a few towns we hadn’t even been considering—and we are forever grateful, because we just closed on our perfect house yesterday! I have already recommended Suburban Jungle to a few friends, and will continue to do so for anyone looking to trade in city life for a home in the suburbs. I can’t say enough good things about them!

Bill F.

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!

Amy N.

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!

Rimjhim D.

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 Suburban Jungle.

Kate S.

We had been planning on moving to the suburbs in a couple of years. When COVID happened, we began to reassess our plans and decided that we needed to start looking sooner rather than later. We knew we wanted to move to New Jersey and had an idea of towns we wanted to explore. A colleague of mine told me about Suburban Jungle and we decided to give it a shot to help us narrow our search and educate us about the towns we were considering. This is how we met Alli Levine. Alli was amazing to work with! She spent more than an hour on the phone with us, trying to better understand who we are and what we’re looking for. She then set us up with a dashboard with a ton of useful information about each town and, most importantly for us, introduced us to great local realtors. Thanks to Alli and our wonderful Westfield agent, Kristen, we’re moving into our new home in 2 weeks, less than 4 months after our first conversation with Alli.

Justin K.

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!

Lauren C.

After 14 years of living in Manhattan, our plan was always to move our family to the NYC suburbs.  Then COVID hit and our plans accelerated, although we weren't sure which town would be the right fit.  Suburban Jungle, and Alli specifically, helped us narrow down our search based on things we didn't even realize were important to us (school size, train vs. bus commute for eventually returning to the office, mom and pop vs. big box store accessibility, etc.).  Between our phone conversations with Alli and the detailed dashboard, the process was truly stress-free and enjoyable. We were set up with our amazing realtor and just closed on our house last week. We are so excited to begin this next chapter of our lives and owe a lot to SJ and Alli for guiding us!

Keren H.

I am so thankful to have stumbled upon Suburban Jungle! Working with Allison Levine was a great experience.  She helped us narrow down our search and tailor it to what we were looking for in a home.  She listens, supports, and truly cares. Working with Allison felt more like working with an incredibly knowledgeable friend who has the inside scoop! Highly recommend!

Mark F.

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.

Alison L.

Suburban Jungle was such a valuable resource in our Westchester search. They patiently connected us with contacts in the various towns so that we could learn more about them and hone in on the right fit.

Kari V.

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 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.

Elyssa M.

I can’t say enough good things about Alli 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!!

Adriana S.

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.

Kristen C.

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.

Jennifer K.

Working with Allison Levine was wonderful and I don’t think my family could have found our new home in Connecticut without her. With a very small window of time to find a house, two small children and doing everything virtually from Florida, Allison was able to narrow down our search and determine the right town for us. Within a week, we viewed several homes online and then flew to CT for two short days in which we found our perfect house. It was a hugely nerve racking experience to do things so quickly but with Allison’s knowledge, counseling and incredible warmth and kindness, we pulled it all off and are so happy in our new home!

Christina A.

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.

Carly G.

Allison was an amazing resource and helped us find a perfect fit!

Heather M.

Allison was super helpful narrowing down our aimless search into something actionable.  We are lucky to have had her as a resource!

Patton C.

Alli Levine and Suburban Jungle was 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.

J. Rodrigues

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.

Keara T.

I had heard people mention suburban jungle so many times, but didn't quite understand how valuable of a resource they would be until I started working with Allison Levine. I loved how she dug into my husband and my upbringing and lifestyle to think about the type of town we would most enjoy. She hit the nail on the head and long story short, we ended up buying in 1 of the 3 towns she recommended. Throughout the whole process, she kept checking in, making me feel less stressed when we kept losing houses. She connected me to local moms and most all, the best realtor in town. I have recommended SJ to so many friends. It's an incredible business idea, and you get nothing but value from them.

Danny B.

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.

Katie T.

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.

Daniel K.

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. -Mahesh P. We loved Suburban Jungle. They connected us with many great realtors and towns. Allison Levine is the best

Jenna S.

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!!!!

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.

Katie L.

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.

Alana K.

Suburban Jungle is an awesome resource! My husband and I started working with our strategist, Alli, who talked with us all about what we're 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!

Kayla W.

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 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!

Timothy D.

Very helpful and great experience!

Suburban Jungle was so helpful to us as we contemplated a move out of Chicago. They spent so much time listening to our concerns and helped us find a suburb that is a great fit. They also set us up with a phenomenal realtor and connected us with other community resources that were really valuable.

Molly P.

The Chicagoland Suburban Jungle Realty team was great to work with. Heather was so friendly and informative as we started our housing search. Everything about the different areas was laid out in one place which made it much easier for us to compare and contrast seemingly indistinguishable communities.

Sonal P.

I would definitely use Heather in the future. She was able to put in touch with the right people to give us the peace of mind we were looking for when it came to buying a home. We were finding homes but the community information was missing. This was huge as we have 2 toddlers and schools were a big concern. they were able to help us gain the confidence we needed to finally take the plunge.

Aoife L.

Extremely helpful and welcoming to two girls new to the city! Couldn't recommend them enough!

Rebecca K.

Shopanny helped a friend and I find a lovely apartment when we were moving from Ireland to Chicago. She could not have been more helpful and accommodating, especially with the time difference. I would highly recommend The Suburban Jungle Group.

Laura T.

We had a great experience working with Heather Jagher in Chicago.  She was nice, professional, and knowledgeable.  The suburb recommendations she put together were a good match for our needs.  We actually wound up falling in love with a specific house we saw online and when we reached out to Heather about it, she got us set up with a fantastic local realtor, Meredith Lannert, within minutes and we were able to see the house the next day (and eventually buy it!)  Everyone we met through SJ was friendly and responsive without being pushy.  Definitely recommend!

Lee G.

We heard about Suburban Jungle from a friend of a friend during a birthday party.  From the second we reached out, Heather and the team has been incredible.  They provided us with information about every community we were looking at, gave some fantastic advice and opinions about which areas were family friendly and put us in touch with THE BEST realtors.  It was a long process to find a home and both Suburban Jungle and our realtors were there every step of the way.  This is an incredible service that everyone should know about.

Andrew S.

Heather Jagher and team helped us move from our Chicago condo to the western suburbs. After 16 years in the city, what we initially thought would be a daunting and complex task (i.e. two kids 5yo and 2yo, 2020, etc), ended up being a simplified, manageable, and enjoyable journey through Heather's help. She took the time early on to understand our relocation goals and timing. Based on our discussions, she then referred us to agents residing in the towns and neighborhoods for which we had interests. The two agents (Amy and Lori) we would eventually meet and work with in the West and North, were very effective, friendly, and genuine in partnering with us during our search, and we plan to keep in touch further as friends. We would recommend Suburban Jungle for anyone looking to move from the city and explore the suburbs. Thank you!

Rio G.

Suburban Jungle was the perfect agency (free for the buyer!) to help us figure out the perfect suburb for my family having lived in NYC for almost a decade and more recently in Chicago. Heather Jagher hooked us up with a few great real estate agents, and we had great chemistry with one in particular, Pat Butcher. Heather and Pat together helped us to feel at ease as first time home buyers, patiently answering all of our questions and going beyond to provide us with information that we wouldn't have known to ask for. We not only saw properties, but toured potential neighborhoods we could be living in. These ladies helped us to identify our needs vs. wants without pushing us to sway outside of the vision we had for our new life as homeowners, and both have even kept in touch to help us out since closing into our move. NONE of it on our dime! If you’re in any urban region looking to move, we recommend Suburban Jungle to help you find your perfect neighborhood 100%!!!

Rita A.

As a native of Michigan who moved to the city of Chicago for professional reasons and ended up staying for personal reasons, I had no idea if or where I ever wanted to leave the City to raise my family. I had read about Suburban Jungle and since there was no commitment in just talking to someone, I gave them a call. They were amazing from the start. Heather at Suburban Jungle was especially a dream come true. She walked me through what a move would be like, talked me through the type of areas a "city" person like myself might like and touched on all my concerns. She even put me in touch with a realtor (Anne) who she thought I would click with. I cannot tell you how amazing the whole experience was and we found a dream home. No pressure tactics,  just friends to talk to and help walk you through the process. A complete dream team!

Kate J

This is such a great idea and very helpful for those people that have never lived in the suburbs! We were able to really nail down different ideas and find a great place that we wanted to live

Stephen Y.

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.

Toni M.

I worked with Jodi at Suburban Jungle and she really helped me understand the area which we knew nothing about! She connected me with a fabulous realtor who was able to get us a house in a heated market.

David P.

Our family was ready to make the move from the city to the burbs, however my wife and I knew next to nothing on the burbs themselves. After an initial consultation with SJ, we were assigned to two realtor groups in two different areas to help us navigate the search and buying process. Our experience was excellent and they helped us submit a winning bid in a highly competitive market. At the end of the day Suburban Jungle delivered on their mission to help find our family a wonderful home. I would highly recommend their services.

Laine E.

We had such a great experience with Heather and Suburban Jungle! We needed to move from Nashville to Chicago mid-pandemic, which made it an especially stressful situation. Heather helped us confirm the suburb we wanted to live in, and then recommended a real estate agent to us who was extremely helpful. We ended up buying a house sight-unseen, and were happily relieved to find that we loved the house and the neighborhood once we arrived! Suburban Jungle made the moving process possible!

Jennifer L.

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!

Eric M.

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. 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!!

Jeffrey M.

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!

John S.

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.

Paul G.

Picking up and moving my family and my business came with huge amounts of stress. A big part of that stress in the early stages was the overwhelming feeling of getting lost in the house hunt. It was no coincidence that shortly after I connected with Melissa Schneider from Suburban Jungle, things began to fall into place and pretty quickly. Not only was she able to find us the perfect neighborhood and agent to work with, she was able to get us informed about and connected to things like schools, restaurants, and anything else we needed. She was extremely responsive and available anytime, and it was clear that we were more than another client to her, she really does care about not just finding the neighborhood and the agent, but making sure that the transition is as smooth as can be. We are so happy we found her and Suburban Jungle!

Aileen D.

I was working with Suburban Jungle to explore the NYC suburbs. Then in 2020, we ended up being in Florida for our annual vacation and decided to stay. I was connected with Melissa Schneider, who brought calm and reassurance to such a daunting time. She instantly understood me! She is so relatable, and has a natural talent to connect with people. Not only did she introduce me to a realtor but also has become my resource to all things South Florida- doctors, activities for the kids...she is always willing to answer questions. I can’t recommend the service enough and certainly can’t recommend Melissa enough! All it takes is one conversation with her and anyone would agree. Thanks Suburban Jungle and Melissa Schneider!!

Jessica G.

My husband and I decided to make a life changing move in the middle of a pandemic and relocate to southern Florida. But, we didn’t know ANYTHING about the area and couldn’t even visit to see it in person. We had worked with Suburban Jungle when we moved out of the city to the suburbs a number of years ago and I was delighted to find out that they now have representation all over the country.  Enter Melissa Schneider who spent hours over countless phone calls painting a picture of all of the different areas, the pros and the cons, the various lifestyles and the types of people that live in each area... and it was so vivid that we were able to picture ourselves living there, from across the country. Melissa instinctively “got me” - she understood right from the get go what would appeal to our family, what our needs are, what we were looking for in a community and where we should focus our search. We literally would never have been able to make the move without her guidance. And, since we’ve moved she’s become my go to resource for all things from pediatricians to colorists! If you are considering a move to south Florida, Melissa Schneider is your girl!

Danielle P.

My husband got a transfer from NJ to South Florida. We had never been any further in FL then Orlando. We didn’t know anything about any of the areas and had no idea where to start. I found Suburban Jungle on a Facebook page and decided to give it a shot. Melissa contacted me immediately and we connected so easily because we had the same NY NJ background. She was able to listen to all of my concerns and answered all of my questions, which I had tons. She was able to ask enough questions about us and our lifestyle to narrow down the area to concentrate on. Melissa continued to check on us thru the entire process. She set us up with a realtor who helped us find our dream rental on the beach. We can’t thank Melissa enough for her expertise and professionalism as well as ongoing friendship

Michelle S.

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!

Rebecca S.

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 to give us so much support when we arrived. Can’t say enough great things about this service!

Jamie J.

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!

Jamie B.

For a variety of reasons - including virtual working -  we were looking to move out of our 1 bed NYC apartment and were considering relocating. I read about Suburban Jungle in the Daily Mail and gave them a call. We were considering South Florida, Scottsdale or somewhere else. Eventually we zeroed in on South Florida and Melissa - our Suburban Jungle advisor who is beyond helpful and professional - guided us to Boca where we ended buying a house a few weeks ago. Our lives have completely changed for the better and I doubt we'd have ended up where we have without Suburban Jungle. If you're looking to move, I would strongly (strongly) recommend giving Suburban Jungle a call. They have a network of local experts/advisors with deep knowledge of their area, who can advise you on every aspect of living there. They never charged me a dollar and no paperwork. It's a great concept and I'm not aware of anything else like it. They are essentially lifestyle advisors and their incentives are aligned with yours, i.e. to find you the right place for you to live. We are very happy with the realtors they connected us to and Melissa continues to be an incredible resource, several weeks after closing.

Tina S.

Our decision to move from NY to Florida couldn't have happened without Suburban Jungle! I came across Melissa Schneider's "story" on Facebook and was drawn to her honesty, courage and relatability. After what I thought would be an informative call, it immediately turned into a two hour conversation about everything and anything Florida. She helped us  understand the different areas of South Florida, narrow down communities, connect us with parents at various schools, and be my go-to person for every other detail of this move (including pediatricians, dentists, orthodontists, sport activities and much more!). Melissa's passion for helping others through this process is vibrant and I couldn't have done this without her! Thank you Suburban Jungle for helping us make this happen!

Melissa from Suburban Jungle in Florida is an absolute STAR. I never knew what I was missing in my search for my new home until I met her. She’s intelligent, professional, trustworthy and just overall highly competent. Coming from a lifelong NYer who was looking to move down to Florida remotely and during a pandemic, I thought this process would be an absolute nightmare. I’m also a complete control freak who needs to know every detail of everything. Melissa made this process as easy as possible while coordinating everything for us seamlessly. Most importantly, I trusted her and continue to trust her…so much so that I recommended my mom work with her to find her new home as well. She is the best and has been a pleasure to work with. Suburban Jungle, you are beyond lucky to have her!

Veronika C.

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!

Marzia A.

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!

Adithi M.

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!!

Pegah K

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 knowledgeable 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, neighborhood, amazing schools and our beautiful home. Thank you so much Melissa.

Emily K.

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!

Amy S.

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!

Adam G.

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! -Anna S. 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. 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!

Melissa H.

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.  Thank you for making a program like this available for a homebuying novice like myself.

Client K.

The Suburban Jungle Team has been very helpful with our home search. The advice we received from our Strategist, Eleanor Johnson, was very helpful and we like the fact that the focus is on finding the community that we can live, not just focusing only on the home. We have finally settled in our new home and we really enjoy it so far. We definitely recommend our friends who are looking for a new home to seek consultations from the Suburban Jungle Team.

Nicole H

I had the best experience with Melissa! When I first contacted her, I had no idea where to start. We knew we wanted to move to south Florida, but didn't know much about the different areas. Melissa took her time, shared information about areas she thought would work for my family, and set us up with agents. Throughout the process, Melissa checked in and was always available to listen and help. Melissa is an excellent resource and made the stressful process of moving to a different state easy for me and my family. I highly recommend Suburban Jungle when navigating out of state moves and we couldn't have been in better hands!

Alexandra R.

Working with Suburban Jungle Realty was an incredible experience. Robin was insightful on areas that my husband and I should focus on throughout our entire journey. She gave recommendations that were ideal for our move from New York City to the suburbs of Westchester. Even when we felt stuck, Robin continued to provide excellent suggestions. Ultimately, she helped us find the perfect town and we are incredibly excited for this move!

Andrea D.

Great experience! Thank you Annie and Suburban Jungle, will recommend!

Rikki G.

Working with Eleanor at Suburban Jungle was absolutely incredible. We were feeling cramped in Brooklyn, but couldn't imagine where we'd go. Feeling stuck, overwhelmed by random zillow listings, and a plethora of recommendations from friends and family - we found Suburban Jungle and are so fortunate. From the start, Eleanor was thoughtful, considerate, and asked questions that made us really think through what we wanted for ourselves, our family, and our future. Truthfully, anytime we got nervous or anxious about what was coming up for us when we visited a town or house... we called Eleanor. She was our go to person for this entire search. And when we submitted an offer on a house - we called her first thing! We've already recommended Suburban Jungle to 6 friends, and we'll keep doing it. For folks who know they gotta go, but don't know where to - this is the place to work with. Eleanor was incredibly patient (we worked together for... 10 months??) and had access to all the coolest details and amazing people. The best. Simply the best experience.

Emily S.

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!

Jason B.

A fantastic service. After years as confirmed city dwellers, the prospect of picking a new community was daunting, but Suburban Jungle helped us quickly narrow the choices and put us in the hands of some great local agents. We couldn't be happier in our new town.

Karen

Robin, and the whole concept of Suburban Jungle, is amazing: not only did Robin figure out what I wanted/needed to know about moving out of Manhattan, she put us in touch with amazing realtors in several suburbs and each one was wonderful. She, and all of her colleagues, were just as eager to help when I flip-flopped from renting to buying to renting again, and I urge any city folks looking to move to reach out to Robin. It's been a great experience!

Stacey T.

Suburban Jungle was super helpful in our long, thorough (to say the least) home buying process. They really encouraged us to find the neighborhood first and then focus on the home since what we love about the city is the neighborhood/close feel that we feared we lose when going to the suburbs on top of the commute! It truly is a process to find the place that feels like the majority of "must-haves" are met - especially when the "must-haves" to "would-live-to-haves" go back and forth sometimes too! Needless to say, we are thankful for the support we had from Suburban Jungle in finding the perfect home for us!

Molly U.

Robin was wonderfully helpful during our search in Montclair. She always responded promptly and was always willing to assist. We really appreciated her guidance and attention.

Megan P.

We had such an amazing experience from start to finish when working with Robin from Suburban Jungle! We were hesitant on whether leaving the city was the right move for our family after 14 years there, and she helped every step of the way.  The first town she mentioned may be a good match ended up being the town we picked and are so so happy here! Thank you Robin and Suburban Jungle!!!

Laurence L.

Robin and the team at Suburban Jungle were instrumental in helping us zoom in on the right community for us. Their fact sheets are very precise and save you tons of time! They are very patient and caring with their clients. I highly recommend them if you are considering a move out of the city or even relocating from abroad!

Bradley A.

Suburban Jungle and Robin were indeed the highlights of our experience buying a new home and were truly by our side every step of the way. They helped us go from ‘we have no idea where we want to live’ to finding the home in which we will start and grow our family!  We’ve found a rich and diverse town that has welcomed us with open arms all within commutable distance from our Times Square jobs.  We're absolutely grateful for and believe in the service that Suburban Jungle offers its clients.

Shawnta S.

This initial step was exactly what I needed to move forward. The strategist was friendly, charming, and a good listener. I felt like she had my needs in mind and supplied a hopeful outlook.

Pablo B. 

A true lifesaver! We relocated from Boston to NY/NJ and were so overwhelmed finding our place. Robin and Suburban Jungle helped us find a place we still can’t quite believe, by directing where to search and who to work with. Thank you!!

Pablo B. 

We had such a difficult time identifying where to go live in the NJ/NY area when we relocated from Boston. After months of struggle, I am so glad we connected with Suburban Jungle. Robin Hoberman was amazing and not only did we find our place, we got hooked up with AMAZING real estate agents, such as Jo Anne Jedd in Montclair. Life changing!! Thank you guys!!

Elizabeth D.

Like so many people, my family decided to start thinking about making the move out of the big city into the suburbs. We were constantly having the conversation about "where" and we were doing endless hours of research, until we had heard about Suburban Jungle. After one conversation with Robin, we already had SO much more direction than we had before. Robin really listened to what we were looking for and in less than 24 hours, came back to us with a narrowed down list of places to start looking, information on each place, and assigned real estate agents to set up town tours. Throughout the entire process, Robin made herself available and shared in our excitement every step of the way. Not even a year later, we found a home that we love in an area that we didn't even know about before Suburban Jungle. Big thanks to Robin and the Suburban Jungle team!!

Jackie M.

Robin was so helpful both during our search and after we moved!

Michelle T.

Robin Hoberman at Suburban Jungle was an amazing resource when we began our initial search for homes outside NYC. She was always available to answer our questions about the different towns and how they all compared and ultimately connected us with the best broker in the town where we found our forever home. Robin continued to follow up with for a year after we found our home to make sure we are getting acquainted and to see if there is anything she can do to help make the transition to suburbia as smooth as possible. Suburban Jungle was instrumental in making our hunt for our dream home less overwhelming and we are forever grateful to Robin and Suburban Jungle.

Scott G.

We worked with Robin Hoberman and really could not have had a better experience.  Robin was always available to answer questions and help steer us when we really didn't know which way we were going.  Coming from the city, we did not have a feel for the different towns in Westchester, but the brokers she linked us with knew their towns inside out and were all a pleasure to work with.  We couldn't recommend Robin and Suburban Jungle any higher!

Lindsay S.

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 have lived in NYC for over 20 years, so when the serious talks about leaving for the suburbs came up we felt lucky to discover Suburban Jungle. Our experience has been wonderful. Working with Robin Hoberman was the best thing that could happen to us. She was so knowledgeable, patient, and helpful, and really understood what we were looking for in a town. And she connected us with outstanding people in the towns we were interested in. Moving out of our beloved city is overwhelming, but we have felt supported and confident in this decision thanks to the Suburban Jungle team. They gave us all the tools we needed to be comfortable with this huge life change. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts for giving us this opportunity to confidently move forward with the next chapter of our lives.

Amanda D.

We had a great experience with Suburban Jungle. Robin was amazing! She communicated often and made the whole experience so easy. She connected us to an amazing realtor, we had a great city tour and an unbelievably seamless experience overall. As first time homebuyers, this is just what we needed!

David K.

My wife and I used Suburban Jungle to find a home in the suburbs on a very tight timeline and we highly recommend their service. We spoke with a consultant about what we were looking for and she put us in touch with two great agents that covered different areas. Everyone we worked with was knowledgeable and professional and we found a great home.

Robert V.

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.

Lauren C.

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 continues to be my go-to person whenever I have questions!

Bridget M.

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, then 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!

Michael R.

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

Ronni A.

We had a wonderful experience with Suburban Jungle. They were terrific about talking us through the process of moving, pairing us with someone helpful from each town we considered, and following up as appropriate until we found our new home. I would highly recommend that anyone considering a move talk to them

Michelle O.

Suburban Jungle Realty provided us with a unique and informative service that quickly helped us find the town that worked best for our family. Leaving New York City can be overwhelming, and SJR was able to simplify the process and provide all the information needed to make the best decision.

Faran D.

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.

Rachel K.

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.

Stacey D.

I can’t thank Patti Natiss/Suburban Jungle and her team enough for all they did to help in the search for our new home. After living in the city for 22 years and raising a family for 13, we decided to leave NYC for the suburbs. Both my husband and I are native New Yorkers and felt we were up to the task of searching on our own until we got down to it. After realizing that there are so many details to consider I knew we needed someone to streamline it for us. This is when we connected with Patti. She immediately put us at ease and started to narrow down our choices based on a brief conversation. Patti put us in touch with extremely knowledgeable brokers who are well rounded on all fronts, from neighborhoods to teaching styles within public and private schools. Needless to say after searching we found our home 🙂 The professionalism and diligence from her team were impeccable, always there to answer any question! If your struggling with your search it’s worth a try! Thank you Patti, Julia, and Susan!

Lilly W.

I would definitely recommend Suburban Jungle to anyone who is unsure of where their future hometown may be, and even if you think you know where you want to end up. Working with Suburban Jungle helped us identify and assess different areas that may or may not be a good fit for us. Working with the same contact who gets to know you and your situation is very helpful and we had a great experience touring different areas with their experienced team of realtors who felt more like friends and broke down the process in easy steps. Working with Suburban Jungle helped us realize what was important to us and ultimately what area would be the best fit, a great experience all around.

Bobby S.

My wife and I found our dream home in Darien, CT after months of searching the New York metro area. Suburban Jungle was able to funnel us to the right towns in the NY area, based on our objectives (i.e., great public schools, access to water). And they were able to connect us with the best brokers in those towns who helped to educate us on the right part of town to find a home for our growing family. The seamless nature of our interactions with Suburban Jungle and the local brokers meant nothing was lost as we translated our ideas of a future life in the suburbs into reality. Thank you Suburban Jungle for helping us make our dreams come true.

Sharon M.

We had a wonderful experience working with Suburban Jungle and ended up buying a home in a town they initially recommended that we had not planned to look at on our own. They really opened our eyes to new areas and gave us insider information on neighborhoods, schools, personalities and town vibes that are hard to get on your own. The realtors were all knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend reaching out to them when you're ready to leave the city!

Diana H.

Patti from NYC was available almost immediately and very easy to talk to. It was a pleasure. She took an anxiety provoking situation and made it an exciting one. Our initial conversation was informal and pleasant and yet resulted in targeted information that helped us focus our efforts, which, if you are restricted for time, is truly an asset. Suburban Jungle should incontrovertibly be the first stop for anyone asking themselves the what/where/when/why questions of moving to the suburbs.

Claire H.

Contacting Suburban Jungle was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. With Patti's help at SJ, my husband and I found a perfect community that we initially thought was out of our price range. Patti was able to quickly assess our needs and dreams and match us with great communities. As a first time buyer, she held my hand throughout the entire process and was very patient. She answered everything I asked: from best schools, to 24-hour CVS runs, to whether to buy a house with a well and septic system. She also introduced us to a fantastic realtor who was just as A+++ as her. That realtor put us in touch with great RE attorneys and contractors. I honestly think our home buying process was smooth and staffed with top notch, honest professionals because we started with Suburban Jungle. Everyone deserves to have a Suburban Jungle representative by their side during the buying process. Such a value add.

Rita

“Hi Patti! Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how EXCITED we are to be moving into our new home in just a little over a week. You and Susan have been absolute dreams to work with and I can't thank you enough for guiding us in our search for the right town and connecting us with Susan to help us find and get the right house."

Laura D.

“Deciding where you are going to live, raise your family and probably make one of the biggest investments of your life is not a decision that should be taken lightly. This is why I am glad I had Patti to guide me through this stressful process. After one 45 minute phone call, Patti understood what was important to me and my family. Even when I wanted to go astray and look at other NYC suburbs she wisely knew were not a fit for my family, she gracefully brought me back to where we needed to be. We found a home in one of her suggested suburbs. Looking back, I am scared on where we could have ended up if we had not listened to her feedback. Patti is excellent at what she does and the consummate professional. Not many people can "figure you out" in one call and know where you will ultimately be happy. My husband and I will be forever grateful for her guidance. She is a good listener, extremely trustworthy and truly wants her clients to be happy.”

Sabrina C.

I just wanted to thank you and your team for creating such a thoughtful experience for home buyers. Since the moment we began our journey with Suburban Jungle, I never felt alone. From the initial phone conversation to match us with the right towns, to the check-in emails and calls along the way, you were always on top of where we were in the process and what we might need. The agents you connected us with were amazing - all smart, honest, compassionate women who cared about me and my family's happiness. They became not just our agents, but our advisors and confidantes as well. I truly appreciate your unique approach to home buying - making it a fun, enriching experience. I will absolutely recommend your services to my friends who will hopefully be following in our footsteps to suburban living. Thank you.

Maura L.

We had a great experience with the suburban Jungle. We were living in Brooklyn with our 2 kids, age 2 1/2 and 6 month old... when we first reached out. We had no idea of a good affordable location that wouldn't put us into culture shock! They made the process easy. Everyone we had contact with was very nice, professional and helpful. We are very happy where we are and have Suburban Jungle to thank!

Smita and Anil A.

We wanted to tell you about our excellent experience with Suburban Jungle. In December of 2015, we learned that we would be moving from the DC metro area to the suburban NY area. We knew that we wanted to move into the suburbs, but, were completely lost as to how to begin our search and which community might be best for us. By sheer luck, we found an article about Suburban Jungle on the internet and immediately contacted you. We were extremely fortunate to have Patti Natiss as our assigned strategist. During our first phone call with Patti, we knew we had struck gold! She was very nice, a great listener and did a wonderful job of educating us about the suburban NY area. Patti gave us suggestions on where, based on what we told her, she thought we might be the happiest. It was obvious to us that Patti knew the communities of suburban NY area like the back of her hand. She also helped us realize that finding the right community was important as we were initially thinking of just looking for the best house at the best price. Patti suggested that we explore the Rivertowns, Larchmont, Pelham, and Greenwich. We did look in all of those places and liked them all. However, Patti's first suggestion during our initial phone call was the Rivertowns. Although we did a lot of searching, we were were lucky to find a fabulous home in Dobbs Ferry. After living here for about 1 month now, we can say that Patti's instinct about us and where we would feel "at home" was exactly right. Through our search, we had many ups and downs and also wondered if we needed to explore NJ when, at first, we didn't find the right home in any of the aforementioned towns. Patti was there to support and guide us the whole way. We called her many times throughout the process and she was kind, supportive and informative every time. Patti always made time to speak with us regardless of the day or time; and, when we were down, she was there to pick us up. She never lost faith that we would find the right home in the right place, even though we sometimes did. We feel extremely lucky to have found Suburban Jungle and Patti. Patti took what was an unmanageable and overwhelming search process and made it manageable and straightforward. Patti's support was invaluable. We've decided that should we ever have to move again, we are not going anywhere without Patti on our team. 🙂 Thank you so much for creating Suburban Jungle!

“It made a great difference to work with Suburban Jungle! Your excellent and open advice about the suburbs was the foundation to everything else. It was also very helpful that you’re from the midwest and “you get” what we’re looking for, not just in terms of good schools, but the type of community. In reality we could’ve lived in any of the places you recommended, they were all a great fit, it really came down to the house (looks, features, price, condition) and its location within the city. We just happened to find the best house in Glen Rock. Also, even with the locations done, we wouldn’t have known where to start in getting realtors. All of this saved an incredible amount of time. Plus, when we decided we wanted a new agent for Westchester, that also happened very quickly and we were super happy with the replacement. This service was exactly what we needed, and it’s the ideal for anyone in the situation we were in: moving to NY metro with little knowledge about the area and doing things remotely. Thanks so much, I’ll let you know how it goes!”

Jill

“We are finally getting settled in Chappaqua and we are SO SO happy! LOVE IT here! We never had a chance to connect before the move, but I just wanted to reach out to say thank you Patti! Your guidance and wisdom made all the difference. We may have never been here without you… and we are so grateful!"

The Spectors

“We wanted to write and say thank you to you and the whole Suburban Jungle team in helping our family find not only our home but also our community and our peace of mind. You were a great support in this process, which is so often hyper and unnecessarily stressful. We could call any time to get your prospective on a situation, talk through the financial numbers, or just whine and cry about how annoying and unfair the market sometimes is. And believe us sometimes whining and crying is just as important in this situation as making the right bid 🙂 In all seriousness, our family couldn’t be more grateful for your services. We really felt like we had an advocate on our side whose encouragement, industry relationships and advice was invaluable in a real estate market where every move and minute count. Any and every family will be lucky to work with you.”

Renee and Greg

“Thank you so much! It has been a pleasure working with you. We appreciate the patience you showed us through our search and your help in finding us the right town to settle into. We are very excited to be moving next weekend and looking forward to planting roots here!” 

Eve & Anthony

“Deepest thanks for helping us with our neighborhood research! What an amazing few days of having all the info we needed handed to us on a platter. A great use of our time and resources. Much much obliged!!”

Jackie

“Given my husband is relocating from the UK with work, he was offered corporate assistance. We had one call with the company and they didn’t even compare to SJ in terms of knowledge and willingness to help. We turned down this benefit as we didn’t see it as a value add to us.”

Matthias L.

Moving from Manhattan to the suburbs was intimidating. Suburban jungle was great, because it is a free service which advises you what towns best fit your lifestyle. I didn't grow up in the area and thought all suburbs are similar which they are not. The service was absolutely invaluable to me and made the transition much more comfortable.

Barrie D.

My husband and I recently used Patti from The Suburban Jungle to pick the right town to move to from the city. Patti was very helpful and patient with us. She followed up with me regularly, talked us through the process of buying and gave us advice about which towns were right for us. Without Patti we would not have found the town we are moving to. We can't recommend her enough.

Mandy

Words cannot adequately describe how grateful we are for Patti at Suburban Jungle. For two years, my family and I planned to move to Fairfield, CT based on many wonderful family vacations there, great schools, beautiful neighborhoods, and affordable home prices. We had one week during our children’s Spring Break where we were going to dedicate 100% of our time to finding our new home. Our time frame was tight because we were planning on moving early summer and wanted to have our children attend camp in the new town and meet friends before school starts in the Fall. One week was all we had. After a 2-day house search in CT with a local agent, we just felt like something wasn’t right. We knew that we would be making the wrong decision, but we just couldn’t articulate what it was that made the town the “wrong fit.” After returning home on the 3rd day, we both remembered reading about a company that works with people in situations similar to our own, a company called Suburban Jungle. From the car, we sent an email requesting a fast turnaround on a consultation, and Patti got right back to us and moved her schedule around to accommodate our short timeframe. In our initial phone consultation with her, we expressed that we wanted a town close to Manhattan, a house near a train station, amazing schools, parks and recreation, and above all, a sense of community. Patti’s knowledge of the local landscape is incredible, and she asked a series of questions, the right questions, to get to know both my husband and I in a more personal way. She also spoke to us about why Fairfield wasn’t a great fit for what we were ultimately looking for with this move. After getting a sense of who we are, our personalities and priorities, Patti honed in on The Rivertowns in Westchester, NY (and even within those, highlighted some that might work better than others). That day, Patti connected us with the top real estate agent for that area, and by the next day, Day 5 in our journey, we found our dream home! I’m happy to say that by Day 6, we made an offer and by that afternoon it was accepted. In one month, we close and will begin our new life in Irvington, NY, all because Patti took the time to understand and help us prioritize what we needed for this next chapter of our lives. I sometimes think where we would be without Patti’s guidance, and I absolutely think we would have landed in the wrong town, perhaps in the wrong State, and in the wrong community. There would have been a deep guttural feeling that “something isn’t right” that for a while might have been pacified by good schools and an affordable home, but over time would be replaced by regret and a deep sense that we made the wrong choice. I don’t know how Patti does what she does, but she knew us and our needs, in a sense, better than we did.  The minute we drove into Irvington, NY, we knew it was our town. The minute we met some of the local residents, we knew this was our community. The minute we saw our house, which is an easy walk to the train station and local schools, we knew it was our home. We will forever be grateful to Patti and Suburban Jungle for helping us course correct and put us on the right path for our family. You are amazing!!! 

Robin and David

“We could not be more thrilled to have learned about your unique firm and concept in real estate. You truly helped us find and settle into a town we did not even know existed! We have you to thank for helping us through our search and providing the objective advice on where to look and the right questions to be asking throughout the process. We LOVE it here, thank you!!!”

Lauren A.

I really appreciated the help Suburban Jungle was able to provide as we navigated the move from the city to the suburbs.  The agents were all really solid, and Patti was very responsive and helpful throughout the process.  Definitely recommend.

Carla K.

I am so happy we worked with Suburban Jungle.  Several years ago, I reached out and had some initial calls with Patti.  I was hesitant about moving out of NYC, and she was very supportive in discussing my family's wants and needs.  She suggested a few towns for us to keep on our radar.  We decided we weren't ready at the time to make the big move, but Patti kept in touch a couple times a year.  She wasn't pushy at all - she'd just send a quick email to say hi and let me know she was there if and when the time came for us to revisit suburb search.  Then the time came when we really wanted to move to NJ, and Patti was there for us.  She spoke to my husband and me about what we were looking for in a town, and she had considerations that we had not even thought about.  In the end, she suggested we focus on 4 towns and set us up with realtors to take town tours.  From there, we quickly fell in love with a particular town (the one Patti had ranked as our number one, just from speaking to us on the phone!) and a particular realtor (the one Patti had set us up with).  And before we knew it, we found and closed on our dream home in our dream town.  We're so thankful to Patti and Suburban Jungle for helping us navigate the huge decision to leave NYC.  It's not an easy choice, but they're there to help you figure out what's best for you and your family and to make you excited about the change.  I highly recommend working with them!

Sara R.

Amazing!! We wouldn't have found our town or home without Suburban Jungle. Patti and her agents are patient, thoughtful, honest and provide sound guidance during a very stressful time. We were starting from scratch looking at towns outside of NYC and we found the perfect spot for our family thanks to them. Thank you!!

Todd K.

We had a great experience working with Suburban Jungle.  Patti asked the right questions, was incredibly responsive and thoughtful and took the time to really help us figure out the right town for us.  We would highly recommend her.

Stacey J.

Working with Suburban Jungle was a very good experience. The broker was knowledgeable and professional.

Jonathan S.

Patti made a daunting process not only painless, but enjoyable. My wife and I were planning to leave NYC for the suburbs, but had no clue what town (or state for that matter) would be the right one for us. Patti took the time to learn about our backgrounds, interests, and likes/dislikes to help us narrow down our search to a few select locations that would be the best fit. She then put us in touch with the best agents in each town for community tours and home showings. Throughout the process, Patti followed up to ensure that we were being well taken care of and to help us think through tough decisions. It’s rare to meet someone who genuinely cares about your best interests and invests the time to learn what’s most important to you, but we were lucky to have found that in Patti. We would highly recommend that anyone considering a move work with Patti! 

Sarah F.

What a great service!  We first heard about Suburban Jungle from some moms in our neighborhood in the City, and it lived up to all the rave reviews... Patti spent 90 minutes during our initial consultation getting to know me and my husband, our lifestyle, our hopes for a place in the suburbs.  Then she introduced us right away to a realtor who specializes in the suburbs we were interested in.  That realtor proved to be amazing - so knowledgeable, kind, funny, and honest - and we ended up with exactly the home we had hoped for.  Patti was always there for follow-up questions as we considered additional suburbs.  We're so grateful for her guidance and recommendations, and so happy with how it all turned out!

Diksha M.

We knew we were ready to leave the city, but knew nothing about the surrounding towns.  Patti helped us articulate our criteria in terms of what was important to us, and then identified towns for us to explore which fit these criteria. I really embraced her find the right town first, house second philosophy.  It was also interesting to see how right she was about the towns she suggested for us, and we appreciated the quality of the agents we were matched up with in the different towns. We've now been in our new home for 2 months, and are forever grateful to Suburban Jungle for guiding us through this process so smoothly!!

Allison S.

Patti, It was such a pleasure speaking to you - you are a breath of fresh air in this business. And I think the work you are doing is so important / critical - and most people don’t even know it.  

Amy B.

Patti, I just wanted to say thank you for our call! You were so insightful and everything you said really resonated and hit on all the discussions we’ve been having together. That call was more productive than the many, many hours we have spent over the last several years trying to navigate ourselves. We really felt so much more informed after speaking to you.

Alan K.

Very helpful. Would recommend. We moved out of NYC and wanted a good place to land

Ronit P.

Was a pleasure to work with! So grateful I found you!

Laura S.

We have LOVED working with Suburban Jungle!! They had fantastic insight into what areas we should consider- and ended up falling in love with a town that we hadn’t thought of before. All the realtors they introduced us to were fantastic and the town tour model of learning the areas was hugely helpful in finding our right fit. Beyond that they connected us with resources to explore our options for our kids’ schools and more, all while routinely checking in to hear how we were doing with the process, find out what our thoughts were and continuing to provide friendly, pressure-free support. We are beyond thrilled with where we’re ending up and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Suburban Jungle to anyone even considering a move to the burbs!

Claire W.

We worked with Patti Natiss. She was wonderful. She was very knowledgable and patient. We were moving from another state and on a tight timeline and she helped us plan out each visit so we could maximize our time and find the right town for our family. Suburban Jungle uses a unique concept where finding the right town comes before finding the right home. We ended up in a great place and are so happy we were able to work with Patti and her team of realtors to gain insight into multiple areas and then work to narrow it down till we were satisfied. I can't recommend this process enough. Especially if, like us, you are very unfamiliar with the different suburbs. Thank you Patti!

Alison P.

We had a great experience with the Boston office! We had a small timeline to work with when finding a town that was right for us in the Boston suburbs. Barbara really helped us narrow down our town list and find a town that I know will be a great fit for our family!

E. Sung

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

The Curiale Family

A few years ago when our twin boys were about 2 years old we decided to do some research on moving out of the city. We knew we wouldn't do it right away but wanted to wrap our heads around what it "looked" like. We spoke with Patti from Suburban Jungle and I remember the first phone call the questions she asked were so on point, and she understood right away how we felt about leaving the city. The towns she recommended we explore all spoke to us, but we found one in particular that we knew was the one! Over the course of the past few years we kept in touch and a few months ago we started our search seriously. Patti has kept us sane during this! She told me to keep going and not settle for somewhere else, go with what we love. We appreciate her guidance so much. We have now closed on a house! I couldn't have done it without her!! Thank you Patti!!! We are forever grateful. 

Melanie K

Our growing family needed help finding a community that we would be excited about moving to. We had lived in NYC for 20 years and had zero clue where we would relocate so we did what we always did...procrastinate. We finally contacted suburban jungle during peak covid lockdown and was put in touch with Patti Nattis. Right from the start, Patti was amazing to talk with; very approachable, highly knowledgeable, and honest. She put us in contact with great brokers and was my point person for everything from neighborhoods to schools to camps to hair salons and everything in between.  She has been super supportive, welcoming, and helpful every step of the way and I always feel comfortable contacting her even after we purchased our first home in December 2020.

Stephen C.

Suburban Jungle in Boston has been extremely helpful and resourceful in lending time, attention, and otherwise essentially unavailable assistance to us in our search for a new town and a new home. The realtors to whom we were referred earned our trust and have been first-rate. We were also pleased to be put in contact with residents willing and eager to answer questions and provide insights on their communities. Barbara Hirsch from Boston Suburban Jungle is tremendous and overall for buyers this is a great service without a downside. Definitely recommended.

Eleanor B.

Thank you so much for your help; having you and Suburban Jungle as a resource was incredible. We felt like I was starting from zero with the home buying process, and you really listened to us and helped us to focus on what we wanted out of a house and a town. You also connected us to excellent agents. Thank you, again.

Jordan H.

Our experience with Suburban Jungle Boston couldn't have been better! It happened so much faster than we anticipated, but that's because our consultant and realtor got to know us, found us exactly what we were looking for in a suburb and home and made the process so easy and fun!

Jordan H.

Suburban Jungle was just what we needed! Barbara helped us find the perfect Boston suburb, we worked with great realtors and found the entire experience to be fun and easy!

Scott A.

Suburban Jungle was just what my family and I needed as we began thinking about moving out of the city and into the suburbs. Barbara helped us crystalize our thoughts about what exactly we needed (train access to the city, access to the highway for my job, a town center, etc.) and then was incredibly helpful in narrowing our search. Once we had narrowed our search to a few, very different, suburbs she put us in touch with current residents so we could learn more in depth about each. Finally she put us in touch with a knowledgeable realtor who had grown up in the neighborhood and was fantastic throughout the process. We ended up in the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood! Highly recommend utilizing Suburban Jungle no matter where you are in the buying process, or even just thinking about it!

Jocelyn D.

Suburban Jungle was helpful for me as I had cast my net rather wide in the Greater Boston area to find the right next town and condo for me. It was great to have multiple touch points with the company, getting advice and insight, and opening up many opportunities for visiting various listings. It is definitely tough in this seller's market, but one agent was able to help me purchase an off-market property that met my needs. Thank you Suburban Jungle!

Colin B.

Knowledgeable and attentive. Excellent adjunct to have on your side as you navigate the housing market.

Karen M.

Suburban Jungle is a phenomenal service made even more fabulous by the people with a laser focus on the customer. Right from the beginning, Barbara made us feel comfortable and allowed us to be transparent and free with our journey to find our next family home. She provided great insight and perspective and linked us into amazing agents in each of the towns. I have recommended the service to family, friends and colleagues and never felt any pressure throughout the entire experience.

Srini K.

Suburban Jungle was an awesome experience for us. We had great chats (at least twice) with Barbara, who understood our needs and recommended cities & a realtor for us. The realtor we were matched with went above and beyond to help us find our dream home.

Lindsey H.

Suburban Jungle is 100% the reason we now own our first home. I first came across SJ as an ad on Facebook and when I explored the website and realized it was free to me, I thought, “why not”? I was immediately connected with Barbara, and after she got to know me and my family, she recommended some places for us to look. She was super patient with me, answering all questions timely and thoroughly, and even when we found our suburb but didn’t love the real estate agent, she found a great match for us. Barbara is actually coming to see the home she helped us find tomorrow! I am FOREVER indebted to SJ for helping us navigate our city and find the perfect spot. 10/10 recommend!

Jessica S.

I've been trying out this great resource, Suburban Jungle. So far they have been fantastic. They help you navigate the area you are relocating to, and narrow down your search to a few towns. I love the realtor that they set us up with! 

Beatrice N.

I cannot say enough good things about Suburban Jungle! My husband and I are moving to Boston from a small town in Michigan and I was feeling overwhelmed by the process of finding the right town for our family.  We had 2 one hour consultations with Barbara and it changed the whole move experience for me. It was so refreshing to talk to a real local who was deeply knowledgeable about all the towns and able to give the "insider" perspective that you just can't get through data driven town rankings. She also connected us with a fabulous real estate agent who has been amazing to work with.  We just bought a home in the town Barbara recommended and spent this past weekend falling in love with the community. She totally nailed it - this town is the perfect fit for us

Amar K.

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!

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. This helped us attack a difficult market effectively and get our home in almost record time in this competitive market! If you are looking for a realtor, you must use Suburban Jungle. They will absolutely give you the best chance at winning your dream home.

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!

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!

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.

Jacob M.

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!

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!

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.

Kate P.

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.

Emma R.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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!!

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.

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
We had a great experience working with Maya and her team. We were first time homebuyers and our search spanned over 3 years and 3 states in the tri-state. We didn't find Suburban Jungle until the last 6 months of the process. My initial call with Suburban Jungle helped give us some ideas and guided us to look in new areas we hadn't considered. When we had a change of heart about location, Maya made herself readily available and connected us to wonderful contacts who guided us on neighborhood and real estate. When questions came up later in the homebuying process Maya continued to make herself readily available and we felt her answers were very honest and well-rounded (we didn't feel pushed in any direction). The broker referral she made (who wound up working with us on our home purchase) was amazing and also had the best advice and referrals (lawyers, service providers etc.). We'd highly recommend Suburban Jungle to anyone in any stage of the homebuying process.
20:58 03 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
Suburban Jungle was such a valuable resource in our Westchester search. They patiently connected us with contacts in the various towns so that we could learn more about them and hone in on the right fit.
12:53 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. This helped us attack a difficult market effectively and get our home in almost record time in this competitive market! If you are looking for a realtor, you must use Suburban Jungle. 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.
20:08 26 May 21
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.
01:20 18 May 21
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!
16:15 17 May 21
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.

Melissa from Suburban Jungle in Florida is an absolute STAR. I never knew what I was missing in my search for my new home until I met her. She’s intelligent, professional, trustworthy and just overall highly competent. Coming from a lifelong NYer who was looking to move down to Florida remotely and during a pandemic, I thought this process would be an absolute nightmare. I’m also a complete control freak who needs to know every detail of everything. Melissa made this process as easy as possible while coordinating everything for us seamlessly. Most importantly, I trusted her and continue to trust her…so much so that I recommended my mom work with her to find her new home as well. She is the best and has been a pleasure to work with. Suburban Jungle, you are beyond lucky to have her!

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! 👏🏼
20:59 03 May 21
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!
15:44 30 Apr 21
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!
00:46 24 Mar 21
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!
13:00 21 Mar 21
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
18:56 22 Jan 21
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!
21:26 12 Jan 21
We had such a great experience with Heather and Suburban Jungle! We needed to move from Nashville to Chicago mid-pandemic, which made it an especially stressful situation. Heather helped us confirm the suburb we wanted to live in, and then recommended a real estate agent to us who was extremely helpful. We ended up buying a house sight-unseen, and were happily relieved to find that we loved the house and the neighborhood once we arrived! Suburban Jungle made the moving process possible!
21:18 27 Dec 20
Heather Jagher and team helped us move from our Chicago condo to the western suburbs. After 16 years in the city, what we initially thought would be a daunting and complex task (i.e. two kids 5yo and 2yo, 2020, etc), ended up being a simplified, manageable, and enjoyable journey through Heather's help. She took the time early on to understand our relocation goals and timing. Based on our discussions, she then referred us to agents residing in the towns and neighborhoods for which we had interests. The two agents (Amy and Lori) we would eventually meet and work with in the West and North, were very effective, friendly, and genuine in partnering with us during our search, and we plan to keep in touch further as friends. We would recommend Suburban Jungle for anyone looking to move from the city and explore the suburbs. Thank you!
21:31 17 Dec 20
My family could not be happier with our experience with Suburban Jungle! Everyone we worked with was professional, knowledgeable, and most of all, a lot of fun to talk to. You can tell they not only take pride in their work, they really enjoy it as well. After our first phone call, our wonderful representative Allison recommended a few towns we hadn’t even been considering—and we are forever grateful, because we just closed on our perfect house yesterday!I have already recommended Suburban Jungle to a few friends, and will continue to do so for anyone looking to trade in city life for a home in the suburbs. I can’t say enough good things about them!
22:22 12 Dec 20
For a variety of reasons - including virtual working - we were looking to move out of our 1 bed NYC apartment and were considering relocating. I read about Suburban Jungle in the Daily Mail and gave them a call. We were considering South Florida, Scottsdale or somewhere else. Eventually we zeroed in on South Florida and Melissa - our Suburban Jungle advisor who is beyond helpful and professional - guided us to Boca where we ended buying a house a few weeks ago. Our lives have completely changed for the better and I doubt we'd have ended up where we have without Suburban Jungle. If you're looking to move, I would strongly (strongly) recommend giving Suburban Jungle a call. They have a network of local experts/advisors with deep knowledge of their area, who can advise you on every aspect of living there. They never charged me a dollar and no paperwork. It's a great concept and I'm not aware of anything else like it. They are essentially lifestyle advisors and their incentives are aligned with yours, i.e. to find you the right place for you to live. We are very happy with the realtors they connected us to and Melissa continues to be a incredible resource, several weeks after closing.
20:28 08 Dec 20
It was fantastic working with Allison. She was able to identify towns for me based on the criteria I set across the tri state area. I looked at many different houses with 3 different agents across 3 states. All the realtors were extremely professional, responsive and patient. As it turned out I settled for a place in NJ!! Many thanks Suburban Jungle!
02:44 03 Dec 20
This was a great experience from start to finish. Erika Ades, our strategist, was so helpful for my family move-out-of-the-city process. She helped us figure out which suburbs to look in. After the first contact, she indicated some suburbs and I discarded one because it was more distant. However, she insisted that I keep it and give it a try. Well, our family has fallen in love with the city and that's where we're moving to.In addition to all the support, Erika connected us with other locals in the area. And she set us up with our real estate agent Dana Goldman who was marvelous.We had an amazing experience and highly recommend it if you are trying to navigate the suburbs.
22:47 01 Dec 20
Suburban Jungle was an awesome experience for us. We had great chats (at least twice) with Barbara, who understood our needs and recommended cities & a realtor for us. The realtor we were matched with went above and beyond to help us find our dream home.
01:15 29 Nov 20
We have lived in NYC for over 20 years, so when the serious talks about leaving for the suburbs came up we felt lucky to discover Suburban Jungle. Our experience has been wonderful. Working with Robin Hoberman was the best thing that could happen to us. She was so knowledgable, patient, and helpful, and really understood what we were looking for in a town. And she connected us with outstanding people in the towns we were interested in. Moving out of our beloved city is overwhelming, but we have felt supported and confident in this decision thanks to the Suburban Jungle team. They gave us all the tools we needed to be comfortable with this huge life change. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts for giving us this opportunity to confidently move forward with the next chapter of our lives.
19:53 25 Nov 20
Very helpful. Would reccomend. We moved out of NYC and wanted a good place to land
19:59 21 Nov 20
Had an amazing experience with suburban jungle. Highly recommend if you are trying to navigate the suburbs.
00:47 16 Nov 20
My husband and I recently used Suburban Jungle to help us decide what NJ town to move to. From my first call with Alli Levine, it was clear that SJ was a wealth of information. Alli took time to listen to our wants in a town, a house, and a real estate agent. She connected us with other locals in the area. And she set us up with our real estate agent (Jillian Nolan) who was FABULOUS. We are so happy to be newly settled in our home. Thanks so much to Alli and Jillian for helping us along the way!
19:41 02 Nov 20
Suburban Jungle was the perfect agency (free for the buyer!) to help us figure out the perfect suburb for my family having lived in NYC for almost a decade and more recently in Chicago. Heather Jagher hooked us up with a few great real estate agents, and we had great chemistry with one in particular, Pat Butcher. Heather and Pat together helped us to feel at ease as first time home buyers, patiently answering all of our questions and going beyond to provide us with information that we wouldn't have known to ask for. We not only saw properties, but toured potential neighborhoods we could be living in. These ladies helped us to identify our needs vs. wants without pushing us to sway outside of the vision we had for our new life as homeowners, and both have even kept in touch to help us out since closing into our move. NONE of it on our dime! If you’re in any urban region looking to move, we recommend Suburban Jungle to help you find your perfect neighborhood 100%!!!
22:27 31 Oct 20
Picking up and moving my family and my business came with huge amounts of stress. A big part of that stress in the early stages was the overwhelming feeling of getting lost in the house hunt. It was no coincidence that shortly after I connected with Melissa Schneider from Suburban Jungle, things began to fall in to place and pretty quickly. Not only was she able to find us the perfect neighborhood and agent to work with, she was able to get us informed about and connected to things like schools, restaurants, and anything else we needed. She was extremely responsive and available anytime, and it was clear that we were more than another client to her, she really does care about not just finding the neighborhood and the agent, but making sure that the transition is as smooth as can be. We are so happy we found her and Suburban Jungle!
15:55 27 Oct 20
I was working with Suburban Jungle to explore the NYC suburbs. Then in 2020, we ended up being in Florida for our annual vacation and decided to stay. I was connected with Melissa Schneider, who brought calm and reassurance to such a daunting time. She instantly understood me! She is so relatable, and has a natural talent to connect with people. Not only did she introduce me to a realtor but also has become my resource to all things South Florida- doctors, activities for the kids...she is always willing to answer questions. I can’t recommend the service enough and certainly can’t recommend Melissa enough! All it takes is one conversation with her and anyone would agree. Thanks Suburban Jungle and Melissa Schneider!!
13:53 25 Oct 20
This was a great experience from start to finish. Erika was extremely knowledgeable and eased the anxiety when it came to home buying AND selling. She put us in touch with the best professionals. I highly recommend this service they know what they’re doing!
00:55 23 Oct 20
Maya has been on this journey of finding the perfect suburban neighborhood with my family for 3 year. She had multiple conversations with my on the phone answering every question I had. She was patient and gave me honest information. We finally settled in Westchester and couldn't be happier.
10:49 12 Oct 20
This service was amazing! Being native Brooklynites we had no clue about the suburbs. Suburban jungle helped us to narrow down our search and connected us with a fantastic realtor. They were super responsive and addressed all our needs. Would highly recommend using them for your move out of the city.
15:20 09 Oct 20
We used Suburban Jungle to guide us through our decision making to get more space for our growing family. They helped us understand the essence of each neighborhood and got us in touch with an amazing agent in our target area who held our hand every step of the way. This is an amazing service and its free! Can't beat that!
21:16 04 Oct 20
Was a pleasure to work with! So grateful I found you!
13:48 27 Sep 20
A free service that helps you connect with various towns, agents, and helps you thru the buying process. Can't beat free! Everyone was super nice and helpful, definitely worth exploring if you want to learn more about suburbs.
01:32 27 Sep 20
Allison Levine at Suburban Jungle was an incredible resource to us as we started the search for our first home purchase. We were previously transplants to NYC, and had no prior knowledge of the suburbs surrounding the city. For us, that meant we were considering 3 different states, and multiple cities in each! Allison got on the phone with us right away and was always available at the drop of a hat for a text, email, or phone call. With her extensive knowledge & perspective, she became a true partner in talking through the pros and cons of each town, each house, and each decision - all in great detail. We laughed, we cried, we had the unique advantage of Allison on our side to help us make sense of it all. Five months after our first call, we are moving into a home we are so excited about. I’d recommend checking out Suburban Jungle and asking for Allison if you are thinking of settling down in any of the NYC burbs.
01:27 19 Sep 20
My husband and I decided to make a life changing move in the middle of a pandemic and relocate to southern Florida. But, we didn’t know ANYTHING about the area and couldn’t even visit to see it in person. We had worked with Suburban Jungle when we moved out of the city to the suburbs a number of years ago and I was delighted to find out that they now have representation all over the country. Enter Melissa Schneider who spent hours over countless phone calls painting a picture of all of the different areas, the pros and the cons, the various lifestyles and the types of people that live in each area... and it was so vivid that we were able to picture ourselves living there, from across the country. Melissa instinctively “got me” - she understood right from the get go what would appeal to our family, what our needs are, what we were looking for in a community and where we should focus our search. We literally would never have been able to make the move without her guidance. And, since we’ve moved she’s become my go to resource for all things from pediatricians to colorists! If you are considering a move to south Florida, Melissa Schneider is your girl!
10:44 17 Sep 20
As a native of Michigan who moved to the city of Chicago for professional reasons and ended up staying for personal reasons, I had no idea if or where I ever wanted to leave the City to raise my family. I has read about Suburban Jungle and since there was no commitment in just talking to someone, I gave them a call. They were amazing from the start. Heather at Suburban Jungle was especially a dream come true. She walked me through what a move would be like, talked me through the type of areas a "city" person like myself might like and touched on all my concerns. She even put me in touch with a realtor (Anne) who she thought I would click with. I cannot tell you how amazing the whole experience was and we found a dream home. No pressure tactics just friends to talk to and help walk you through the process. A complete dream team!
15:11 16 Sep 20
We had a great experience with Suburban Jungle. Robin was amazing! She communicated often and made the whole experience so easy. She connected us to an amazing realtor, we had a great city tour and an unbelievably seamless experience overall. As first time homebuyers, this is just what we needed!
13:01 15 Sep 20
My husband got a transfer from NJ to South Florida. We had never been any further in FL then Orlando. We didn’t know anything about any of the areas and had no idea where to start. I found Suburban Jungle on a Facebook page and decided to give it a shot. Melissa contacted me immediately and we connected so easily because we had the same NY NJ background. She was able to listen to all of my concerns and answered all of my questions, which I had tons. She was able to ask enough questions about us and our lifestyle to narrow down the area to concentrate on. Melissa continued to check on us thru the entire process. She set us up with a realtor who helped us find our dream rental on the beach. We can’t thank Melissa enough for her expertise and professionalism as well as ongoing friendship😎
12:20 08 Sep 20
I worked with Jodie at Suburban Jungle and she really helped me understand the area which we knew nothing about! She connected me with a fabulous realtor who was able to get us a house in a heated market.
12:35 02 Sep 20
Suburban Jungle is phenomenal. I originally reached out to Suburban Jungle over a year ago when my husband and I were thinking of making a move out of the city. We set up tours in Maplewood, Montclair, New Rochelle, Pelham and Stamford. We met with different agents in all of these areas, who know the towns and the markets. It was immensely helpful to meet with agents who specialize in these areas—and talk to our Suburban Jungle agent about our wants and needs. Suburban Jungle’s focus is finding the right town, not house, based on what your family needs and wants. When we finally put an offer in on a house in June, Maya reminded us about what was important to us—without being pushy—and we eventually got the house and closed in August. I have recommended Suburban Jungle to friends and I highly recommend them if you’re overwhelmed by the New York suburban real estate market—even if you’re not thinking of making a move for a while.
10:28 01 Sep 20
My family and I had such a wonderful experience with Suburban Jungle. They spoke to us two years before we were ready to buy a home and were with us throughout the entire process. We were connected to a wonderful realtor who was able to find us a beautiful home in an area we never even knew existed before we started this process. We had personalized service from beginning to end and just closed on our first home. We cannot thank you enough!
00:09 29 Aug 20
Loved working with Suburban Jungle! They really helped us identify a new area in the suburbs that we love and meets our needs!
11:33 23 Aug 20
This is such a great idea and very helpful for those people that have never lived in the suburbs! We were able to really nail down different ideas and find a great place that we wanted to live

Sarah Roggie with Suburban Jungle was the best! My husband and I had just welcomed our first daughter into this world, and on top of that we were starting new jobs an hour apart. I wanted to move out of our one bedroom apartment but wanted to settle in a place where our daughter could grow up and make friends. It was tough with our job locations to find a place that was affordable, safe, had a good school district, was not a terrible commute, and where we could make lifelong friends. Sarah connected us with two amazing realtors. She listened, understood our unique situation and our concerns, and really worked hard to make sure our needs would be met. We landed in the perfect spot. On moving day, we had almost 10 neighbors come by with food and wine and many of them had kids our daughters age. It’s exactly what we were looking for, but I honestly wouldn’t have explored this neighborhood if it weren’t for Sarah. Can’t say enough good things about her and the experience!

Suburban jungle was a great service for our family in figuring out where to move. It's so helpful to someone to guide you through information about different towns and advocate for you, without having an investment in which town you choose (unlike agents you may work with). Highly recommend!

Erika @ Suburban Jungle was SO helpful for my move-out-of-the-city process. She helped me figure out which suburbs to look in and connected me with people to meet in every place we looked. She spent multiple hours on the phone with me over the past year talking through our town and house hunt. She was nothing but helpful and I would highly recommend using Suburban Jungle to anyone trying to find the right suburb.

My wife and I used Suburban Jungle to find a home in the suburbs on a very tight timeline and we highly recommend their service. We spoke with a consultant about what we were looking for and she put us in touch with two great agents that covered different areas. Everyone we worked with was knowelabge and professional and we found a great home.

I am so thankful for Suburban Jungle's assistance in finding an amazing town and leading me towards the purchase of my first home. I loved the extensive PDF insights Suburban Jungle provided on NJ towns, which helped me navigate the schools, commute, and community activities with confidence. I worked with Allison, who was so attentive, kind and patient. She walked me through the home buying process over multiple calls and set me up on tours with very knowledgeable guides, put me in contact with moms in each town, and sent me very helpful articles so I could get a very clear picture of the communities I was seriously considering. I don't know how I could have done this without SJ and Allison.

My husband and I can’t thank Erica and Kim enough for finding us the perfect location, house and schools! They know the DFW area very well and helped us narrow down all of it! You guys have no idea how much your advice and knowledge helped us! You truly made our life much easier by using your service! Thank you!!

I used Suburban Jungle for the first time to help plan a move to a new city and had a terrific experience! My assigned staffer, Katie Cranis, was extremely helpful, supportive, responsive, and friendly! She made the process of choosing a new suburb in a new state less daunting, and she has checked in on me months later to help me through every stage in the process. Thank you to Katie and suburban jungle for this amazing free service!

I would highly recommend Suburban Jungle to anyone looking to make the move from the city to the burbs! Maya was the best! With her guidance, patience and insight we were able to learn about the tri-state suburbs. Maya made you feel like you had an educated friend helping you figure out the next chapter of your life. Throughout the process she introduced us to many amazing real estate brokers who never tried to push a town or house upon us but rather educate us on their local communities. It was a fantastic way to find the perfect place for our family. And upon picking what would be our town – we met the most wonderful real estate agent who found us our dream home! Thank you Maya and Suburban Jungle!

We used the resources of Maya Konig at Suburban Jungle over the span of a few years as we narrowed down our decision. Maya was ever informative and patient as we navigated the pros and cons, and what our family really needed in relocating. From realtor referrals, to market assessments, we truly valued the service provided by Suburban Jungle. We would recommend them to anyone seeking thorough feedback on all the components one measures when making a major purchase such as a home.

They are amazing. We were first-time home buyers. Suburban Jungle and Erika made this house buying process so much more accessible.
02:25 06 May 20
This is a great service! How about for no money we help you find a house? And we’ll set you up with good realtors to show you around? What’s the catch? There isn’t one!We were first-tome home buyers.You should use Suburban Jungle.
03:06 05 May 20
Suburban Jungle was fantastic every step of the way in helping my wife and I find out perfect home to buy.They helped us focus on towns we’d love to live in and sent very useful information along the way regarding town details and upcoming events.Even though we were about a year off from putting in any offers, everyone from Suburban Jungle was a pleasure to work with along the way.And once we were ready to put in offers, realtor Megan Murphy was there every step of the way. In the end, Megan connected us with a home that was not even on our radar and our offer was accepted. We closed a couple of days ago and will move in later this month!

My husband and I have thought about leaving the city a few times before, but never acted on it because of how overwhelming the thought was to us. We are not from around here, so we really didn’t know much about the best towns to explore, we just knew we wanted an easy commute to the city.When we came across Suburban Jungle, we were intrigued by their value proposition of matching the town with our family style along with other criteria that was important to us. After we talked to Maya, we knew this is exactly what we needed to find our new hometown, and our new home. From the first time we talked, it felt like Maya just really got us, she understood our priorities and what we wanted out of the search. By the end of our first conversation she had an action plan for us. From there we started our town visits, and we quickly narrowed down our search to two towns we loved. After a few months, we found the perfect house. Maya was there through every step of the process, frequently offering helpful advice along the way. Her local agents were also very impressive, they provided information not only about the houses, but also information related to the culture of the town, the community, family life, newcomer tips, etc. They were not only extremely professional and knowledgeable, but the most caring people. They truly made us feel they had our best interest at heart.I must say that Maya and her team went above and beyond to make this process super easy and enjoyable for us. Working with Suburban Jungle was definitely the best and most important decision we made to find our dream home/hometown. I’m not sure we would be home owners right now if it wasn’t because of how efficient the process was because of them. We will be forever thankful to Suburban Jungle, Maya and her amazing team for the outstanding service they offer.

We have LOVED working with Suburban Jungle!! They had fantastic insight into what areas we should consider- and ended up falling in love with a town that we hadn’t thought of before. All the realtors they introduced us to were fantastic and the town tour model of learning the areas was hugely helpful in finding our right fit. Beyond that they connected us with resources to explore our options for our kids’ schools and more, all while routinely checking in to hear how we were doing with the process, find out what our thoughts were and continuing to provide friendly, pressure-free support. We are beyond thrilled with where we’re ending up and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Suburban Jungle to anyone even considering a move to the burbs!

We really appreciated the insight from Pamela Goldman, the Head Strategist at Suburban Jungle, for the San Francisco Bay Area. The service is very interesting and unique, as the staff aim to understand your interests and goals for a home and attempts to match you with a specific few regions, some of which you may not already be familiar with. This work all happens before you engage a real estate agent, which is optional after the initial (and, amazingly, free and with no strings-attached) "neighbourhood match" service.We found Pamela to be especially personable, helpful, encouraging, and full of great ideas as we started our home search. We felt her insight was excellent and that she was a wonderful person to discuss our goals with.

Robin Hoberman at Suburban Jungle was an amazing resource when we began our initial search for homes outside NYC. She was always available to answer our questions about the different towns and how they all compared and ultimately connected us with the best broker in the town where we found our forever home. Robin continued to follow up with for a year after we found our home to make sure we are getting acquainted and to see if there is anything she can do to help make the transition to suburbia as smooth as possible. Suburban Jungle was instrumental in making our hunt for our dream home less overwhelming and we are forever grateful to Robin and Suburban Jungle.

We worked with Robin Hoberman and really could not have had a better experience. Robin was always available to answer questions and help steer us when we really didn't know which way we were going. Coming from the city, we did not have a feel for the different towns in Westchester, but the brokers she linked us with knew their towns inside out and were all a pleasure to work with. We couldn't recommend Robin and Suburban Jungle any higher!

Working with Alli Levine at Suburban Jungle was such an enjoyable experience! It was like having a supportive friend in your corner at all times during one of the biggest chapters of your life. Alli listened to our hopes, wishes, and desires for what we were looking for in a town and compiled a list of possible towns that would interest us. Alli hit the nail on the head with the towns she suggested for us. We toured many of them before deciding on where we wanted to focus our house hunt, but we honestly could see ourselves living in several of the towns we toured. Every agent Alli connected us with in each town was top-notch; they were all knowledgeable, experienced, and relatable! Throughout the process, Alli offered us advice and suggestions while allowing us to bounce ideas/thoughts off of her (at times she was even like a therapist)! She made herself available to talk with us at all times and was always in our corner. My best piece of advice is to use suburban jungle because why wouldn’t you? It’s a free resource with knowledgeable, helpful people looking to help YOU find the perfect town for YOU! We were open-minded during the entire process, and truly took advantage of all that suburban jungle had to offer, and I highly recommend everyone to use them!

We worked with Patti Natiss. She was wonderful. She was very knowledgable and patient. We were moving from another state and on a tight timeline and she helped us plan out each visit so we could maximize our time and find the right town for our family. Suburban Jungle uses a unique concept where finding the right town comes before finding the right home. We ended up in a great place and are so happy we were able to work with Patti and her team of realtors to gain insight into multiple areas and then work to narrow it down till we were satisfied. I can't recommend this process enough. Especially if, like us, you are very unfamiliar with the different suburbs. Thank you Patti!

I can’t say enough about this service! We wanted to make the move to the suburbs with our small children after living in NYC for nearly 13 years yet we had no idea on where to even begin. Our priorities were decent schools, a commute to the city which was not terrible as we both will continue to work there, and a very modest budget for the surrounding areas. On top of that we wishing for more space both indoors and outdoors for our kids, while finding a community that we felt we could be a part of. We thought maybe we had set our hopes a little to high.After an initial conversation with Erika, she and her team sent us a few recommendations for areas to check out, got us in touch with some fantastic realtors, and locals who lived in those communities who have made similar moves. She routinely checked in after we had any meetings, visited a town, or looked at a house, and adjusted our search and recommendations based on feedback. To be honest, at times it was discouraging, but Erika hung with us and told us not to worry, that the right disruption would prevent itself, as she continued to refine our search with us.We finally found a town that had the perfect balance of what we were looking for, and happen to find a house that pretty much checked all the boxes. We are closing on the house in a few weeks.To be honest, I was a bit skeptical about using this service at first, but I really don’t know how we would have done it without them. I never felt pressured or that I was being sold to. In fact, I was urged to wait to find something that we’d be more happy with rather than settling. Because the buyer isn’t paying for the service, I feel they really want you to be happy. In fact, I got the feeling that they genuinely enjoy helping people make this transition and want clients to be successful. They were always honest about both pros and cons and the people they got us in touch with were so helpful. They also do such a great job of sending you information about prospective areas.If you are looking to make that move but don’t know exactly where to start, I’d highly recommend checking out suburban jungle.

Allison and her team were able to put us in touch with a local realtor who not only knew the area but actually lived there! Our realtor was awesome and incredibly knowledgeable. She referred us to our real estate lawyer as well as a mortgage broker. From start to finish we had a very smooth process that was detailed, clearly outlined, and without any headaches. We have heard horror stories about the home buying process, we had an amazing time getting to know everyone involved in purchasing our home and will be recommending Allison and her team from Suburban Jungle every time. Thanks again.

Suburban Jungle is 100% the reason we now own our first home. I first came across SJ as an ad on Facebook and when I explored the website and realized it was free to me, I thought, “why not”? I was immediately connected with Barbara, and after she got to know me and my family, she recommended some places for us to look. She was super patient with me, answering all questions timely and thoroughly, and even when we found our suburb but didn’t love the real estate agent, she found a great match for us. Barbara i actually coming to see the home she helped us find tomorrow! I am FOREVER indebted to SJ for helping us navigate our city and find the perfect spot. 10/10 recommend!

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!
