Jolie Beckwith


As a realtor and property manager for Bridges 8, Jolie understands the importance of customer service and attention to detail. She brings 7-years of residential property management experience in San Francisco and 10-years of hospitality experience at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in Union Square and the Claremont Resort and Spa

Outside of her love or real estate and the East Bay, she enjoys trying new restaurants, roller skating at the Brooklyn Basin, going out for live music or comedy and visiting the Oakland Museum. When she’s not out and about, she likes to relax at home with my 10-year-old tabby cat, Kevin (named after the bird from the Pixar movie Up).
