Prior to entering real estate in 2005, Ilyse worked in the financial services industry for nearly ten years as a marketing and product manager for asset management products and services. The project management, marketing, negotiation and relationship management skills she honed during that period helped her to quickly excel as a broker and today she is one of the top brokers in the Portland area. She has earned a Five-Star Agent Award (driven by client satisfaction) every year since the inception of the program, was the #18 agent for RE/MAX equity group in 2016 and has been named a Top 100 Producer in Portland. Ilyse believes in giving back to her community and is always involved with one or more philanthropic organizations. She currently serves on the FolkTime Board of Directors-a non-profit dedicated to connecting individuals who share the experience of living with mental illness through peer support and community-based activities.
