Erin Bright (Wilson) Russell was born in southeastern Napa County, on a working ranch that has been in their family for generations, and where her family continues to grow wine grapes for highly-regarded brands.  Erin studied theater and production design from an early age in San Francisco, Los Angeles and London. After living and working in many great parts of the world, Erin knew she had to return to the incredible Napa Valley. 


Upon returning to her home, Erin was hired as Director of Sales and Marketing for Dean and DeLuca in St. Helena.  In this role, Erin developed and strengthened relationships throughout the Valley, even co-hosting a cooking and lifestyle pilot focused on local farms and purveyors.  Later, as her life developed with a husband and children, Erin turned to community service and began her role as Program Manager for Agriculture in the Classroom with the Napa County Farm Bureau.  Erin has since applied her background in marketing, design, production and media to effectively direct a number of comprehensive projects for organizations such as the Napa Valley Grapegrowers, Napa Valley Education Foundation and NapaLearns.  Erin has also had the honor to serve as Manager of Regional Fundraising and Communications for successful State Assembly and Senate campaigns for California State Senator Bill Dodd, as well as on the Board of Directors for the Napa Valley Grapegrowers, where she chairs the Industry Issues Committee.


Erin brings her expansive network and experience to support her clients in buying and selling real estate in this region she knows so well.  Erin was recently honored to be awarded the Coldwell Banker International President's Circle distinction, as a top producer in the company, world-wide.  In 2017, Erin joined forces with the Joel Toller Team, forming a successful partnership to represent buyers and sellers in the Napa and Sonoma markets. 


When Erin is not in the office, you will find her riding horses, reading trade journals, hiking and cooking delicious meals for friends and family.
