  • A UNIQUE STRATEGY TEAM

  • GOING TO SEND YOU A BILL….EVER
  • REAL ESTATE AGENTS

Yep. WE ARE FREE. SERIOUSLY. You will never ever get a bill from us.

In the world of real estate, all buyer’s agents work for free. The seller of the home pays the commission! We just took the traditional real estate way and turned it on its head. We add invaluable, incredible services that every buyer deserves and truly shouldn’t be making intelligent decisions without.

NOPE. It’s that simple. If you actually don’t have a dedicated buyer’s agent, you will most likely lose money because you have no one representing your interests in the transaction. Statistics show that unrepresented buyers pay more for homes than those with buyer representation.

For starters we ONLY WORK WITH BUYERS. So no hidden agenda, no inventory we are trying to push. WE work FOR YOU. We also are NOT Real Estate agents trying to sell you anything, ever. We are corporate strategists working for a lifestyle advisory firm whose entire job is to make certain that your best interests are represented – from the start of your search, before you step foot into a house, to post closing when you are trying to find the best paint color. Full Service. Full Disclosure. Our philosophy is that it is easier to upgrade house than to upgrade town. We want you to be sure you love the town before you love your house. Our goal is to make certain you are looking in the right places and asking the right questions. Questions which you may not even have thought to have asked. Anyone can search for a house, but understanding the lifestyle differences that come with each town is an entirely different story and truly impossible to figure out just working with an agent.

Suburban Jungle is the brainchild of Alison Bernstein.

    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.

    Given my husband is relocating from the UK with work, he was offered corporate assistance. We had one call with the company and they didn’t even compare to SJ in terms of knowledge and willingness to help. We turned down this benefit as we didn’t see it as a value add to us.
