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!!!
