Jill Schuster, Principal Broker | GRI, CBR, CNE, CRS, MCNE, CLHMS
I grew up in Massachusetts and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School of Business, with an emphasis on Housing and Community Development. In graduate school, I conducted extensive research of urban neighborhoods and recommended programs to help city government redevelop blighted areas. My first career position was as a site analyst for the Clorox company researching restaurant locations. This was the start of my interests in real estate and development. I have over 30 years experience in business/marketing. In addition to the B.A., B.S. and M.A. degrees, I hold the professional designations of Graduate, Realtor Institute (GRI), Certified Buyer Representative (CBR), Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), Master Certified Negotiation Expert (MCNE, one of 4 in Oregon), Council of Residential Specialists (CRS), a designation for which less than 3% of Realtors nationwide can qualify, and Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS). I’m also honored to have earned the Five Star Agent award for the fourth year in a row, Corvallis’ only agent so designated in Portland Monthly magazine. My husband Steve and I moved to Corvallis in 1996. Steve is an engineer at HP - so I am able to keep in touch with some of the changes happening at a major mid-Valley employer. I participate in many civic and community service activities including the Greater Corvallis Rotary Club. I spend my free time hiking the beautiful Benton County trails, traveling, attending cultural events and cheering on the Beavers.
Josie J. Quillan, Buyer Broker
Helping people feel confident, happy, and reach their goals is an important part of who I am and one of the many reasons why I became a Real Estate Broker. Buying properties can be an intricate and complex experience for most of us. It is also exciting, creative, and challenging. My years of experience working with many people in varying situations assures you excellent service with the foundation of my success founded from my commitment to integrity, exceptional service and knowledge. I enjoy getting to know my clients and truly helping you with both your needs and wants. I earned my Marketing and Management degree from Eastern Oregon University and have always loved working with people. I moved to Corvallis from McCall, Idaho where I worked as the Sales Manager at Brundage Mountain Resort after many years as the Marketing Director of Anthony Lakes Ski Resort in Eastern Oregon. Before working in the ski industry, I worked in finance and loved helping clients reach their financial goals. These experiences helped me to become well rounded in finance, management, marketing, advertising and event planning providing the perfect background to getting you into your next beautiful home. I love the outdoors and being active especially in coaching and empowering young girls for Girls on the Run. I also love spending time with family and friends, cooking large meals, and when the season is right, watching lots of football.
Amanda Stiehl, Licensed Listing Specialist
I moved to Corvallis in 2007, and have called it home since. Both my home builder husband and I are Oregon State Alumni and are proud to call ourselves true beaver fans; GO BEAVS! I worked in the field of property management for 7 years and after my second daughter was born, I decided I was ready for a new profession and challenge. In my previous career I loved getting my properties market ready for new residents and loved working with people providing exceptional customer service. I knew with the skills that I learned from property management, working in real estate as a Listing Specialist was a perfect fit! I am excited each day to work with our clients and to help get their homes in premier condition before being placed on the market. When I am not working you can catch me chasing after my two young daughters, enjoying quality time with family & friends, camping, cooking, and watching FRIENDS re-runs!
