Alison Bernstein: Founder/President
Alison Bernstein is the founder of the The Suburban Jungle Realty, a real estate firm exclusively focused on buyers leaving the city for the suburbs. Recognizing how different neighboring towns can be from one another and how little families learn about a community during the home search, Alison launched Suburban Jungle, helping buyers navigate suburbia, and understand the ins and outs of towns before making their decision. She had personally experienced these challenges while undertaking her own suburban search, and strived to bring that unique expertise to Suburban Jungle families. Prior to this launch, Alison worked in the industry for more than 15 years, including senior-level roles in sales, leasing, investment banking and corporate strategic work spanning three of the nation’s leading real estate organizations. She has revolutionized the real estate industry by creating this new advisory pre-search component to the home buying process. When she’s not helping families in their suburban explorations, Alison enjoys traveling, skiing and tennis as well as spending time at home with her husband and four young children… and huge dog.

Suburban Jungle’s Alison Bernstein Featured in CEO Blog Nation!
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. READ THE FULL ARTICLE, 21 ENTREPRENEURS EXPLAIN WHY THEY STARTED THEIR BUSINESS, ON CEO BLOG NATION! “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.” READ THE FULL ARTICLE, 21 ENTREPRENEURS EXPLAIN WHY THEY STARTED THEIR BUSINESS, ON CEO BLOG NATION!

Suburban Jungle Featured in The New York Post
The Suburbs are for the DOGS… Often, it’s kids who drive a city family’s move to the suburbs. It makes sense—a couple can comfortably live in the city but, once kids (and all of their stuff…) get introduced to a small apartment, all bets are off. Add another child or two, their stuff and, soon enough, kindergarten admissions, and it’s enough to send even the most devoted urbanites to suburbia. But sometimes it’s not the kids—or at least not in the traditional sense. Because, more and more, city dwellers are heading to the suburbs to give someone else a different lifestyle: their dogs. Read the full post, “Childless couples are moving to the suburbs — for their dogs” here For the Suburban Jungle Strategy team, this has become the case more and more. In this article, The New York Post quotes recent Suburban Jungle clients Sarah Remington and David Ross. The then-Brooklyn based couple worked with our team to find the right suburb for their lifestyle—and, of course, for their five-year-old Scottish terrier, Titus.

And, of course, they wanted to be near a park. Such considerations were taken alongside their desire for an older home with historical charm.” Ultimately, Sarah and David settled in West Orange, New Jersey. “[The move] was for the whole family,” Sarah explained to The Post. “[Titus] is an important part of our lives.” Read the full post, “Childless couples are moving to the suburbs — for their dogs” here Recently, the trio moved into a Victorian, and add Titus is “settling into it and he’s protective of it as well.
