Jacqueline Thompson - Riviera Magazine August 2022

Principal and Founder

As the principal and founder behind the Jacqueline Thompson Group this go-getter not only looks like a million bucks, but she’s clocked in well beyond that in local real estate transactions.

When she’s not helping families find their forever homes, the fashion lover is often found giving back through local events and her church—or sneaking in a little retail therapy at South Coast Plaza.
