After real estate clients work with Jackie Donell, they know they’ve found a friend and their Realtor® for life. Jackie understands the stress that accompanies such a huge financial undertaking, and she eases her buyers and sellers into it with her take-charge attitude, adherence to deadlines, professional network, and proactiveness. Common feedback is that people feel that Jackie treats their transactions as if they’re her own ― because she does. She also knows the South Bay inside-out, and she uses her high-touch approach to find the perfect property for people.
Before her real estate career, Jackie was a successful salesperson in the liquor industry. Working for the largest distributor of wine and spirits in the world, Jackie’s strong work ethic and rapid multitasking skills helped her win several awards. But Jackie eventually wanted a career that would allow her to be more present for her children and fulfill her competitive nature. She became interested in real estate when she bought her first condo at age 21, and she began selling real estate full-time in 2011. Jackie’s condo-buying experience makes her empathetic to the unique needs of first-time buyers, but she serves everyone from newbies to retirees and works with many repeat and referral clients. She truly enjoys what she does, and her peers continue to acknowledge her talents with industry awards.
Born in Taipei, Taiwan, Jackie has called Southern California home for most of her life. She grew up on the Central Coast but has been a longtime South Bay resident and currently lives in Rancho Palos Verdes. She balances her career as co-president of Las Amigas de Las Lomas, which builds awareness, raises funds, and supports the Orthopaedic Institute for Children Los Angeles, for which she also volunteers. To unwind, Jackie loves to work with her hands by sewing and baking bread! Jackie is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese.
