With an eclectic background spanning industry lines and coastal cities, she serves as a dedicated advocate for her clients throughout every step of the buying and selling process.
Born and raised in New York City, Jackie studied film and broadcast journalism at NYU before moving to Los Angeles to pursue an opportunity as the publicity and marketing director at Landmark Theaters. It was in L.A. where she would discover her true affinity for real estate and design. After spending time developing single-family residences and spec homes, a designer and builder, Jackie recognized her passion for finding and selling homes and set out to earn her real estate license.
Leveraging her marketing expertise and development background with her natural talent for matching clients with their dream homes, Jackie offers an intimate understanding of the transaction process. Her tireless work ethic and keen negotiating skills have earned her the loyalty of a distinguished clientele who turn to her time and time again for their real estate needs.

She serves on the board of the Women’s Guild Cedars-Sinai, is a member of The Ebell of Los Angeles, and contributes to a number of animal rights advocacy groups, including, The Humane Society, Boxer Rescue LA, and Road Dogs & Rescue.
