How We Work

1
Fill out a quick online questionnaire and schedule a time for your Initial Urban Strategy Session

We are a highly trained and educated STRATEGY TEAM using on the ground research, technology and personal experience… to objectively guide you through it all. We are well versed in EVERY neighborhood. That’s right. EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD. We have lived the big city life and we have trained for months and months on every detail and intangible of the community... not just commutes and taxes, but the true need to know things… (and many things you don’t need to know but WANT to…) We are your true objective advisors, not realtors trying to sell you a home. We’ve got your back… because it isn’t about just bedrooms and bathrooms …it is about your LIFESTYLE.

2
Your personalized home search strategy delivered to your inbox...We guide you through the entire process

After the call, our Strategy team will meet and use our proprietary technology and on the ground research to create a Home Search Strategy for you. You will receive this via email/text and will be able to log in to your personalized dashboard to review the strategy, see town information, and meet your urban jungle deal team! You will be assigned to local agents in each neighborhood we recommend with whom you will be able to schedule your neighborhood tours with.

3
Local tours, easily curated by our team

You schedule a time to head out to each neighborhood we recommend. You receive a personalized tour with the local agent of not just the neighborhood and neighborhood amenities, but also homes so you can understand valuations and architecture. You work with your Strategist to digest all of the information and provide feedback from your tours. The agents we work with are handpicked, have a track record of success and are trained to work with you as part of the Urban Jungle team.

Inside Scoop... and finding a place to really call Home

Once you and your Strategist have finalized the key focus of your search, we will then loop in our “locals” to go to work for you! They are here on our payroll to help you uncover the true personality of the neighborhood... the good, the bad and all in between! The perfect equation for finding the right home in the RIGHT NEIGHBORHOOD!

  • 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 home, 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 neighborhood. We want you to be sure you love the neighborhood 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 neighborhood is an entirely different story and truly impossible to figure out just working with an agent.

Urban Jungle is the brainchild of Alison Bernstein.

    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.
