Jackie Etheridge - Realtor
Jackie has been a resident of Franklin County, Florida for 35 years. Traveling from Kentucky where she was born and raised, she found “her toes” stuck in the sand on the beautiful beaches of St. George Island. She and her husband Sidney of 30+ years live in Apalachicola. They have 4 children and 5 beautiful grandchildren. She has worked in the hospitality business for all these years, 15 years at The Owl Café and Tap Room as a server/bartender and a general co-manager. “As a manager, I found what I enjoyed most was the one-on-one customer service and personal attention to the visitors and locals in “our little town in Paradise” along the Forgotten Coast. I have made lifelong friends with travelers and transplants from all over the world, landing across the bar looking for a cold beverage and a bite to eat, and a sharing what we love about our county and gulf coast, answering their questions and steering them in the right direction to accommodate their wants and needs. It has been a joy seeing them each year, returning to “their little secret spot” either with their growing family and their extended family gatherings or the “transplants” hiding away on the beach, tucked along the river “Goin Fishin” or working In their beautiful little gardens in the historic district. Just another reason why Franklin Co is so unique.” Deciding that a change was in order but not wanting to leave the customer service industry she turned her attention to real estate. “I am so excited to bring my knowledge of the Forgotten coast and local expertise in guiding you through the attention to the details and personal relationships needed to Sale your home or find your “secret little spot in paradise” along the Forgotten Coast. With the support of family, friends, bosses, customers and realtors in the business, I received my Real Estate Associates license the last day of the year of 2019 and I haven’t looked back! I have return clients already and have made lifelong friends over the last two years and excited for what the future holds. I am so excited to continue this new journey with my mentor and best friend of 30yrs by my side working for Anchor Realty Florida and bringing to the table a work ethic, experience and knowledge of our coastal area and we will walk you to the closing table.
