What people are saying about Suburban Jungle…
We called on Suburban Jungle to help guide us with our move from Manhattan to San Francisco. We weren’t sure if we wanted to move to the city or to a suburb. Pam Goldman was so warm and helpful and provided lots of support and insight along the way. When we decided to stay in the city, she referred us to a wonderful agent who helped us buy a house. I recommend this service for anyone who is moving and wants a reliable and trustworthy advisor.
My family moved from New Jersey up to Boston pretty suddenly for a job opportunity. We knew we wanted to buy a home but we didn’t know the area. After a lot of research I thought we were set on target towns, but a colleague recommended suburban jungle. I figured we’d give it a shot since it wouldn’t cost anything, and after working with Barbara we confirmed the area we were targeting was a good fit for what we wanted, but we were also recommended a town we hadn’t considered. We were matched with an agent in that town, and after a day of touring the town and some houses I knew that’s where I wanted us to live. We saw a house a few weeks later and were up against 6 offers, and our offer was accepted in part because of the relationships our agent has and her expertise in the market. We couldn’t be more excited about moving into our new house!
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!!
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!
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.
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.
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.
