Moving To The ‘Burbs Event

There is nothing like being cooped up in the cold winter months to get you dreaming about living in a home with more space.

We’re really excited to be part of the Beyond Brooklyn “Moving to the ‘Burbs” event this week. Come learn more about what it’s like to live in the suburbs outside of NYC. Experts from Essex County New Jersey, Westchester County New York and Long Island will be featured to talk with you about what it’s like to live in these great areas. We’re also lucky enough to have a financial planner and a mortgage broker at this event to help answer any financial questions you may have about purchasing a home.

Beyond Brooklyn Seminar Background

Jessica Fields and Alexandra Foucard, of the Compass real estate platform, began the Beyond Brooklyn event in 2014 to help local Brooklynites learn more about the suburbs around New York City.  The team noticed that many of their sellers and buyers felt as though they had been “priced out” of Brooklyn but were reluctant to leave. Many Brooklynites spoke of wanting the wonderful community that exists in Brooklyn but more space both inside and outside their homes.  Thus, Beyond Brooklyn was born. The event provides helpful, on-the-ground information about relocating and the nuances that distinguish one suburban neighborhood from another. Allison Ziefert and other agents from the surrounding suburbs in New Jersey, Long Island and Westchester are brought together to help Brooklynites faced with rising prices find alternative housing outside the borough. 

Hosted twice a year, Beyond Brooklyn features a rotating group of real estate professionals from the suburbs outside of New York City.  These agents are not only experts in the real estate market, but they are also locals who know the areas they represent on a very personal level.  They provide great insight into what it’s really like to live in their communities. The seminar has helped to successfully relocate many people to communities outside of Brooklyn. As a result of this success, Beyond Brooklyn has been featured in The New York Times,, and The Real Deal.
