Meet Eleanor Johnson

Eleanor Johnson
New York City

Eleanor is a native New Yorker, having been born and raised in Manhattan. She left the city to attend Connecticut College for her B.A and the University of Texas for her M.B.A but always came home to New York. After her second child was born, Eleanor reluctantly realized it was time to consider moving out of her beloved city. Thankfully, Suburban Jungle was there to help Eleanor and her family find the right town and make the transition to a better lifestyle.

Suburban Jungle was able to do what seemed impossible: Turn Eleanor from a dedicated Urbanite to a happy Suburbanite. And having benefited from the Suburban Jungle experience, Eleanor was thrilled to join the company as a Strategist.

And as a former Suburban Jungle client, Eleanor brings a unique, personal perspective to her role as a Strategist. She knows firsthand how overwhelming it can be to find the right town and she is eager to help make the process easier. Eleanor truly listens to her clients to understand their needs and concerns so she can effectively guide them to the town that is right for them.

Prior to Suburban Jungle, Eleanor worked in media as an Ad Sales Marketing professional. She has created custom marketing programs for numerous Fortune 500 brands while working at companies like NBC, Time Inc. and A+E Networks. She has a passion for collaboration, creativity and client service.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
