About Jackie Wilkins

My name is Jackie, and I am retired from the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. Both my husband and I have lived in Washington State all our lives. We reside in Olympia. We both love the Pacific Northwest, but we wanted a place to go for some blue sky and warmth during the long, grey winter months. We've found that with the Estrella Mountain Ranch community and this home. We both absolutely love this home and the Estrella community along with all the amenitities this community has to offer.

Jackie Wilkins purchased this house in 2010

Why Jackie Wilkins chose Arizona

I have visited Scottsdale for the past 15+ years for a Girls' Weekend Out. Having been to the area on so many occasions, I knew the area would meet my needs in terms of climate, but I didn't like the traffic in Scottsdale. I wanted someplace more rural. Just by chance, my husband and I visited some high school friends on one trip. They happened to live in Estrella Mountain Ranch. After touring the area, I knew that this community was just what I was looking for in the way of location and amenities. It really seems to have something for everyone--golfing for my sons, the pool for my daughters-in-law, and the water park and playground for the grandkids.

What makes this house unique

I love the walking trails around the North and South lakes and enjoy walking them in the early morning hours with the other walkers/joggers/dog walkers or in the evening when the sun is setting over the hills. The Arizona sunsets are beyond beautiful, and I never tire of seeing them--whether it's from the lake, our backyard, or the Safeway parking lot! I also love driving to the Star Tower when the sun is setting to enjoy the sunset and to stargaze. I'm not sure what it is about this place, but I can feel the stress evaporate as I drive up the hill to our home.

We had a great stay !

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to have spent a week at Jackie's place. Everything was wonderful. It is a gorgeous home and we had ample room, and we were 7 adults ! There is everything you need in the home and we were happy that there are so many activities you can do nearby. We played pickleball for the first time and loved it. Jackie had pickleball rackets available for our use. For those that are into running or hiking there were great places nearby to do that... we really like how Jackie responded quickly to email - We really appreciated that. we would not hesitate to rent again if we come back to the Goodyear / Phoenix area. Thanks Jackie.
