Griselda Olivan, Broker


Mal and Seitz

My name is Griselda Olivan, I was born and raised in Mexico. I am fluent in Spanish and English. I came to the USA when I was 14, I was able to complete and graduate from high school in 1997 as a junior. After taking advance English classes at Mt. Hood Community College, I decided to pursue a career in cosmetology. As of now, I am a professional Hairdresser and I have been doing hair for the last 16 years; however, I have always been attracted to the real estate business, for that I decided to enroll real estate school. Now I find myself ready to take another turn in my life and see where it takes me. I have two kids, ages 21 (university of Portland student) and 17 (High school junior), I have always told myself, I need to be my children’s example in life, I want them to be proud of me, and teach them that in life you only continue to grow. This is my role, to take care of those who I love, and I want to make them proud. My daughter takes French in high school, and recently had a project which she had to write in French about what motivates her in life; what is it that she loves and sees as her life example to follow. She made my heart melt when I heard from her that she wrote about me, she is proud of the mother she has, and admires, and that I am her motivation in life. I am happy to know I can motivate my kids, they love the person I have become, and they admire and feel proud of me. I hope I can inspire trust and motivation on every person that becomes a part of my life.
