A giant leap for neighborhood discovery.

A small step from corporate relocation.

The story of NextBurb

A Move To SFO That Was Aborted...

Nitesh Mehrotra at Cisco Systems was asked to relocate from Boston to the SF Bay Area.

This was when Nitesh realized that while there were a lot of solutions for finding a home, there was nothing to find the right neighborhood.

A new solution for relocation...
Though Nitesh did not move, he built a tech solution that he would use himself if he moved.

The early adopters of the solution were tech companies into corporate relocation.

Since Covid struck us in March 2020, the context for relocation has altered completely.

Relocation acquires a new flavor

People have started relocating to enjoy the benefits of WFH.  

Moving to a quieter, more spacious neighborhood, striking a better work-life balance, being closer to the family and embracing a more affordable life.

That’s when we learned that people could benefit immensely from our expertise in corporate relocations.
