At the Jill Schuster Team, we are dedicated to helping each one of our clients have a five-star experience.
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 Quillan Workman, Buyer Broker | ABR
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 love being a Real Estate Broker. Working with Jill and our team is such a privilege too! We work so well together to help our clients achieve their goals. I have my Marketing and Management degree from Eastern Oregon University. Both school and previous careers in Finance and Ski Resort Marketing helped prepare me even more to excel in helping my clients purchase their new home. I enjoy being in Real Estate as it allows me to help people, my biggest passion. Real Estate also allows me the schedule flexibility to coach Girls on the Run, an empowerment program for 3rd-5th grades and to volunteer at Bit by Bit Horse Therapy and Adaptive Riding. I look forward to getting to know you and your family and helping you achieve your home goals.
