I have been a licensed Realtor in Idaho and Wyoming since 2001 specializing in assisting clients with homes to list for sale, marketing real estate, helping clients looking for single family homes, condo & town homes and development, first time home buyers, Real Estate adviser, and new construction. I was the owner and broker of a Re/Max office in Wyoming for 9 years and have also owned and operated a property management company. I currently am a Wyoming Broker and an Idaho Associate Broker with CRS designation.
With growing children who were interested in college in Boise, we decided to move back to my home state of Idaho in 2013. Over the years I have been involved as a board member for the Star Valley Chamber of Commerce, board member for a local water district, a member and participant of the Teton County Association of Realtors, Ada County Association of Realtors and has served on a variety of committees dedicated to helping local communities.
I attribute my success in real estate to all the wonderful clients who continue to send referrals to me from over the years in the busines. This propells my passion for delivering the highest level of customer service possible. I make the best effort possible to be available for clients throughout the entire transaction and beyond closing. With over 15 years of experience I am skilled at anticipating questions and being prepared for my clients next steps whether they are buyers, sellers, title companies, lenders or vendors. I approach my real estate career like a favorite hockey player Wayne Gretsky approached his game, "A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be." As an experienced Realtor I will do the same during what can be a very stressful and emotional transaction.
In my free time I enjoy road trips with my daughters and family and I love to “see something I’ve never seen before.” I also enjoy camping, fishing and hunting and loves to indulge my photography passion.
Jo’s ongoing goal and desire is to take Real Estate and Customer service to the next level.

|Reimer Family- Home Purchase in Boise Idaho|
|Jo was our realtor for our first time home buying experience and she went above and beyond all of our expectations. She got us in quickly to look at any houses we found that met our criteria and once we found the one she was with us every step of the way and we wouldn't be in our dream home right now if not for her. She always kept us in the loop with what was happening and responded quickly to any questions we had and was very good at making everything understandable for us because we pretty much knew nothing coming in and she helped us understand it all. We had hiccups along the way and without her persistence and help I don't want to think about where we would be. Growing up my family dealt with a lot of realtors and she is by far the best one I have ever met. We tell everyone we know about her and anyone would be lucky to have her working in her corner|
|Maynard- Buyer in Caldwell Id|
|Great person to work with! Knows the market! Will stand by you through thick and thin. She always gets back to you in a timely manner. I will never use anyone else but her!|
|Testimonial and Recommendation by Joe and Sandy (Sellers) Meridian Id|
|As most people realize, selling your home and moving, either across the street or across the country, can be a very stressful undertaking. In our case, we were moving from Meridian, Idaho to Las Vegas,Nevada. When we set out to look for a realtor, we were looking for someone experienced, knowledgeable of the area, able to explain, in detail, the best options available, be able to give us the quality advice concerning all issues that come up during this process, and, of course, someone who was very easy to work with. After meeting with her, we decided very quickly that Jolynn Short possessed all of those qualities that we looking for in a realtor. After going though this complete process with her, we came to the conclusion that we most definitely made the correct decision choosing her to represent us. If you are looking for a realtor who will be there for you and walk you through a very tumultuous journey of selling your home, and to do whatever it takes to make the process a little easier on you, then you cannot make a better decision than to choose Jolynn Short to not only represent you and be your realtor, but to be your partner during this very stressful process. Lastly, after going through this entire process with Jolynn, we are very proud to say that we now have a new friend. Sandy and Joe|
|Owner in Wyoming|
|I have known Jo Short for quite a while in Real Estate and as a friend. She is honest and always willing to help you any way she can. If you are not sure about something, just ask her and she will answer your questions or if she isn't sure, she will check and see what will be for the best interest of you|
|Trevor and Susan Meridian Listing and Purchase|
|My husband and I were referred from a friend to Jo Short. We couldn't be happier. We were so impressed with her outgoing spirit, sense of urgency and acting as if our home was her own home she was selling. We believe it was her ability to build a re pore with others so easily that she was able to make other feel so welcome in our home. Jolynn was able to sell our home within 6 days. That was with other homes up for sale in our neighborhood for longer around the same price. She went above and beyond and it paid off immensely. We also had Jolynn help us find a new home, which turned out Beautifully. She was able to transition us to our New home from our previous home without a roadblock. This was due to her urgency and being overly prepared which is difficult to come by these days. My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better person to help us. We will always rely on Jolynn to help us in the future, and refer her to everyone. We gained a great real estate agent for all of our Real Estate needs and an even greater friend in the process. Thank you Jo for everything you did to help us...you are amazing. Thank you so much Trevor and Susan Gunlock|
