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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.
