The migration of New Yorkers and Brooklynites to the suburbs occurs frequently enough, but that doesn’t mean it’s not fraught with anxiety and doubt. That’s where Moving to the ‘Burbs, an evening hosted by Brownstoner Home Events at the Brooklyn Historical Society, fills the bill.
The event, on Thursday, November 8 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., will feature a group of brokers and local experts who will talk about the benefits of moving to Westchester, Nassau County’s Port Washington, and Essex County in New Jersey.
Attendees will also learn about the best times to be looking and buying a home, and how to properly time their move, especially if they have property to sell in New York City.
This event is moderated by Jessica Fields, who founded Beyond Brooklyn in 2014, and runs events to help navigate the logistics of moving from the city to the suburbs. Fields is a licensed real estate salesperson at Compass in New York City and provides white-glove relocation services.
“We find that even though there is a ton of data about all these suburban towns on the Internet waiting to be found, the big picture is hard to see,” said Fields. “Being able to have face-to-face conversations removes some of the fears that people have about moving out of the city into a new environment.”
Speakers will include licensed real estate salespersons Heather Harrison (Westchester), Alana Benjamin (Port Washington), and Allison Ziefert (Essex County).
