    It’s sometimes said that city living has an expiration date on it. Considering a move out of Brooklyn but not sure what to do next?

    At a twice-yearly seminar in Park Slope, local real estate agents who’ve made the move themselves talk about relocation and the little things that make one suburban neighborhood different from another.

    “We are seeing that people who moved to Brooklyn years ago as a more affordable alternative to Manhattan cannot afford to move within the area to larger spaces to accommodate their growing families or lifestyle changes,” said Compass real estate agent Jessica Fields, who hosts the events with colleague Alexandra Foucard. “These are people who love Brooklyn and don’t necessarily want to leave but are faced with difficult financial choices.”

    Real estate agents from suburbs in Connecticut, New Jersey, and Westchester County, N.Y., will speak at the seminar about desirable options outside the city limits.

    Fields and Foucard started the informal meeting in response to rising costs of living in Brooklyn and to help clients who had been priced out of the borough but were hesitant about leaving.
