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.
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 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
