Founder & President on Why SHE Started the Business
Something unique inspires every entrepreneur and business leader—and the includes Suburban Jungle’s Founder & President Alison Bernstein. Inspired by her own experience moving her family from the city to the suburbs, Alison started Suburban Jungle. Her goal was simple—after not landing in the right town for her family of six, Alison wanted to ensure future city-dwellers had the insights, intel, and access they needed to decide where to call “home.” And, backed by that unparalleled information, they’d make the right decision every single time.
“The Suburban Jungle creation stemmed from both an industry void as well as personal experience,” Alison explains. “Prior to the business launching, the real estate industry was underserving buyers and was focused solely on listings and sellers. The buyers represent 50% of all transactions, yet they have historically received no love from the industry whatsoever.” The company launched first in the New York City suburbs and, now, is in San Francisco, LA, Boston, Chicago, Dallas and Washington, DC, with plans to expand even more in the near future.
“[W]e lived this exact experience,” Alison continues. “We were trying to figure out where to go—whether or not to stay in NYC or leave… and if we were to leave—which of the over 500 potential towns would be the right one for our family? Without any direction, or ability to get answers … it was a painful and stressful process. The industry was ripe for a service to solve this problem that affects almost everyone at this particular stage in life.”
