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.
Tara Hicklen, Buyer Broker
Real Estate is my passion, and I have been fortunate to incorporate that passion into my daily life. Through my experience as a hair stylist for 15 years in Boise, Idaho, I formed a sincere and invested style of customer service and client relationship. When I moved back to my hometown of Corvallis, Oregon in August of 2018, I felt that with the scenery change, a career change was in order too! I joined RE/MAX Integrity in February of 2019, and went on to join The Jill Schuster Team that same June. Since then, I have had the pleasure of honing my skills as a Buyer Broker, learning from Jill’s more than 30 years of Real Estate expertise and my own experiences with our wonderful clients. There is something so special about supporting buyers as they make this financial move for themselves, and I am thrilled to be a part of this hardworking and success-driven team. When I’m not working to make homeowner dreams come true, I am spending time with my husband and teenage son, hiking the beautiful Willamette Valley, cooking good food and setting and achieving personal goals.
Jillian Davis, Marketing Assistant
I am a fourth-year student at Oregon State University, pursuing my Bachelor's degree in Marketing! Before I joined The Jill Schuster Team, I worked as an Operations Associate at Dixon Recreational Center on campus, managing five different employees and the safety of all gym patrons while maintaining a high standard of customer service. Combining the knowledge and skills I have learned in my studies with my background in customer service and management, I have been fortunate to serve as the Marketing Assistant to our hardworking agents and their lovely clients. I love communicating with clients to find out their favorite parts of their home, and using that information to better highlight all that their home has to offer. When I'm not in the office, you can usually find me studying, improving my painting skills, planning out my next hike with my all-girls hiking group, trying out the many restaurants around Corvallis with my friends, and snuggling my very fluffy cat, Suki.
