Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the leading provider of real estate services in Northern California, announced today that top local Realtors Jackie Merchant and Debbie Briggs have joined the company in its Sacramento-Sierra Oaks office.
Jackie and Debbie, who are sisters, previously worked together at Lyon Real Estate. With 11 years experience as a residential real estate team, the duo said they’re excited to take their business, known as Town and Country Homes, to the next level with Coldwell Banker, the global leader in residential real estate.
“We are thrilled to have Jackie and Debbie join our office,” said Jim Day, manager of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Sacramento Sierra Oaks office. “They are extremely knowledgeable, talented real estate professionals with a long track record of success. I look forward to working with them and having them on the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage team.”
Jackie and Debbie are members of the California and Sacramento Association of Realtors as well as Master’s Club. Their experience is extensive and diverse including handling horse properties, probate and short sales. They also have experience handling luxury homes and move-up sales, but feel it is especially rewarding to help first time homebuyers.
“As sisters we believe we can give people that personal touch,” Jackie said. “We are family to each other. We want our clients to feel that same level of care when we work on their behalf. Client satisfaction is our top priority.”
Before moving to Sacramento in 2000, Jackie worked as a paralegal in San Francisco. Her experience with contracts, writing and negotiation serve her well in real estate. Her community involvement includes scholarship fundraising at Jesuit High School, where she has served on committees for Christmas Tree Lane and the PACE auction. In her free time, she enjoys time with her husband and four children, the American River Parkway, skiing, horseback riding and travel.
Before moving to Sacramento in 2001, Debbie lived on nine acres in Grass Valley. With her young son, horses, dogs, a cat, a goat and a background in animal science, she managed her home as well as a local dog boarding facility. Her management experience is an asset in real estate. Debbie is an advocate for wild horses and belongs to numerous animal welfare organizations including the Sacramento SPCA, where she volunteers her time in their thrift store. In her free time, she enjoys horseback riding, hiking in Tahoe and dog training.
