Suburban Jungle Helps Buyers Find the Perfect Town for Them

Suburban Jungle offers expert advice on what towns and real estate agents best suit you and your family.

If you’re reading this, chances are, you’ve already made the move from NYC to the suburbs, but maybe you haven’t found your true match when it comes to location or town. Enter Suburban Jungle. For buyers and buyers only, the company is a free service for those looking to make a move to the perfect town. SJ puts clients in touch with a real estate agent who specializes in properties and areas the clients are interested in. SJ then receives a referral commission from the real estate agent once the client closes on a new home.

The “lifestyle advisory” company was founded more than a decade ago to serve those looking to move but don’t know where to start. The search can be overwhelming: There are more than 500 suburbs that are commutable to NYC and the options can be staggering.

The firm has strategists who work with buyers to help them find a town based on their lifestyle, wants, and needs.

In the quest for the ideal home, one cannot overlook the timeless mantra: location, location, location. Start the search with an expert who can guide you in pinpointing the perfect locale for your next home and connect you with an agent who can help you find your dream home in your dream town.

One trend the team is seeing is called “re-suburbing,” a term coined at SJ. “[These are] families who panicked during COVID-19 and moved from the city to the burbs [and] are realizing that they settled in the wrong towns,” says SJ New York Strategist, Robin Hoberman. “These families are now calling Suburban Jungle to find the right suburban town for them.”

Do you want to be in a waterfront town close to the city for work?

Is it important that you have a walkable neighborhood and can easily get to restaurants and shops?

These are the types of questions SJ strategists help answer and navigate. Consider them the matchmakers of suburban towns.

Oftentimes, real estate agents are limited as to what information they can share while searching for a home. Do you want to know about the schools? What about community events? What about the pros and cons? SJ strategists can dive into the nuances of school programs, including language immersion options, and are well-versed in both public and private school offerings, including details such as start dates and enrollment processes.

Once a client has narrowed down what they want in a location, the SJ strategist creates a list of must-see spots to visit and plans town visits, offering objective insights and counsel throughout the process.

“We like to say that our advisory services are 98% therapy and 2% real estate,” says Eleanor Johnson, Suburban Jungle strategist. “What sets us apart is we have no agenda other than to make our clients happy. We are not trying to sell them a house or a specific town for that matter. We help them explore communities to find the place they will love and enjoy living in for years to come.”
