A little more about Jolynne Ash
I am in the top 3% of all Realtors nationally in terms of sales volume, education and advanced certifications. I am also co-owner of DreamStreet Real Estate Team founded in 2002, but I began my Real Estate career in 1991. Following is a quick list of my designations and what they mean:
GRI - Graduate Realtors Institute, about 20% of Realtors nationally have this. It requires 40 hours of additional education and the passing of three separate tests.
CRS - Certified Residential Specialist, only 5% of all Realtors nationally have this. It requires a GRI (see above), 48 hours of additional education and the passing of three more tests, along with a minimum of five years real estate experience and 75 documented transactions. This is the hard one!
STAR - Certified by Earth Advantage and Energy Trust of Oregon as a 'Green Realtor'. This certification requires 16 hours of education and the passing of a test. Less than 2% of all Oregon Realtors have this designation.
References - Yes I have them, just ask for written letters or phone numbers, and I would be happy to pass them along.
On the personal side, I live in Aurora, which is just south of Portland in a rural community with my husband of many years. Our two daughters have recently graduated from college and are starting their own lives. Our oldest purchased a home last year at age 24.
