“It’s not work when you love your job!” Hi, I’m Sherri Carolan, realtor with Kelly Real Estate in Decorah, and this quote describes my life. I grew up on a farm south of Calmar, and after graduating from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in finance and economics, I moved back to beautiful Northeast Iowa and worked at a local bank processing mortgage loans. This is where I fell in love with the pleasure of handing people their set of keys. These keys represented so much–the accumulation of hard work and saving, the excitement of realizing a dream, the pride of owning a home. I treasured being able to experience this with my customers. However, being a young graduate, I wanted to explore other opportunities. I moved on from the bank and had enjoyable occupations in both the accounting and appraisal fields. However, I missed the gratification that accompanied helping others with such a fundamental aspect of their lives–their homes. Consequently, I became a realtor with Kelly Real Estate, and am happy to be here to serve you today.

I live in rural Decorah with my husband, Jason, and four children, and am active in St. Benedict’s Parish and School, along with various other community activities. I love my life as a wife, mother, and real estate professional in northeast Iowa. When assisting you with your real estate needs, I won’t consider what I do as just a job, but a rewarding experience.
