I'm Jacqueline Wright-Gridley Etchell, a native deeply connected to Sonoma County and selling real estate since 1987. I go by Jackie locally in Healdsburg and Sonoma County, an alumnus of St. John's Catholic School + Ursuline and Cardinal Newman High School. I take pride in being a third-generation real estate professional, following in the footsteps of my grandfather and father, who have had successful careers in San Francisco and the Northern Bay Area. My father, Phil Wright Sr, RE Broker, is a well-respected businessman in Sonoma County. As a result of that knowledge and from living near the waterfront and outskirts of North Beach for a few years out of school, I possess an excellent understanding of San Francisco, its various districts, and the Real Estate market in addition to the Wine Country markets where I reside should my help be needed.
With early career beginnings in the tourism industry, and a brief experience living abroad in Europe, my Irish/Spanish drive to serve others led me back home where I received my real estate license in 1987. Over the past 30+ years, I have listed and sold a variety of properties ranging from city and country residential, modest and grand estates, expansive ranches, raw land, vineyards, boutique wineries, and commercial properties throughout Wine Country. I have served clients in 6 different counties. Sonoma County, Lake County, Mendocino County, Marin County & San Francisco & alas Napa County where my office is now.
Alongside my husband of 30+ years, we raised our 4 children in Healdsburg and we are now proud to see their children growing up in such amazing communities throughout California. In addition to real estate, my husband and I build and sell spec and custom homes and maintain business ties to the transportation industry. For us family, business, and community have always been intertwined.
My drive to help others has inspired extensive volunteer work over the years, supporting organizations such as Meals on Wheels, Catholic Charities, Habitat for Humanity, Children's Village, the Redwood Food Bank, Relay for Life, and Wounded Warriors. I am also a parishioner of St. John's Catholic Church in Healdsburg, an extension of my family. I am most fulfilled by helping others, whether that is finding a home for them an investment in the greater Northern Bay Area, or lending a helping hand to my fellow Americans.
Home is truly where the heart is, and mine is in a stunning part of the world. It would be my great pleasure to work with you in the Northern Bay Area and assist you with all of your Real Estate needs.
