Jessica Fields began Beyond Brooklyn in 2014 to help local Brooklynites learn more about the suburbs around New York City. An experienced real estate agent at Compass in Park Slope, she noticed that many of her sellers and buyers felt that 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 positive response to Beyond Brooklyn was immediate. With 80+ people RSVP'd to her first educational event with a capacity of 60, Jessica knew she'd hit a nerve. Over the years, the events have evolved to reflect the needs of the attendees. With smaller Spotlight events added in and soon to be destination events, the team hopes to make the process of relocation out of New York City as easy as possible, taking the stress off people looking to take the plunge "Beyond Brooklyn."
With a love for real estate and a desire to help clients find their forever homes, Jessica Fields relishes the ability to assist in one of the biggest decisions in life. She has that innate sense of what clients are looking for and can be a great sounding board or fierce negotiator when needed. She prides herself on being an informed educator, ensuring that her clients have all the information they need to make wise decisions. Her clients' time and needs are supremely important, and she seeks to maximize their results while keeping life as calm as possible.
