Buyer's Broker Focuses on City Residents Moving to the Suburbs

Suburban Jungle Realty fills a niche by helping city residents move to the suburbs. To provide real insight into living in each area, they assembled a network of 45 agents who work in the suburbs of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
May 17, 2012 - PRLog -- Traditionally, real estate agents have focused on specific geographic territories and on listings, but Alison Bernstein sees a focus on clients' lifestyle needs as the future of theindustry.

Bernstein launched Suburban Jungle to serve young families moving from Manhattan to the surrounding suburbs.

In the May issue of "Real Estate Broker's Insider," Bernstein explains how the agency grew out of her own frustration with making the move to the suburbs.

"We literally had to cold call brokers, and we went from town to town," Bernstein says. "Did we ask the right questions? Absolutely not."

Everyone thinks about commute times before picking a new place to live. But other factors are harder to research. How good are the schools? Which schools are best for children with autism or other issues? What are the cultural and political leanings of the town? How do people spend their weekends?

To answer those questions, Suburban Jungle has assembled a network of 45 agents who work in the suburbs in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

Bernstein calls them "town consultants." They can tell prospective buyers all about the political leanings, cultural amenities, and social scene in each suburb.

Details on Suburban Jungle appear in the "Business Models" section of the May issue of Real Estate Broker's Insider.
