Janice is the epitome of everything you want in a "professional" real estate agent. The breadth of her knowledge in Decorah and surrounding areas was invaluable. Coming from the "concrete jungle" and fast-paced lifestyle Janice was the perfect balance for what we needed. There is an ease about the way Janice conducts herself and you can tell that she truly loves what she does and enjoys all there is about Decorah. We are fortunate to have Janice represent us and I highly recommend her services...a true professional!

Marcia Madrigal has been our agent for a single family home and a commercial property purchase in the past 2 years. Hands down - she is the best of the best. She is extremely supportive, offers great advice and ideas when negotiating. She is always one text or phone call away and truly made us feel like we were her only clients. She is more than an agent - she is a friend and great business person. You will not go wrong choosing Marcia to represent you in a sale and/or purchase.

It was such a pleasure to work with Keegan at Kelly Real Estate! She is informative, has her clients best interest at heart, and makes herself available for any questions you may have. She is professional, organized, has a pleasant personality, and goes above and beyond for her clients. I would recommend Keegan to anyone looking to buy or sell!

I was put in charge of selling my parents home. Jeanne Gullekson listened to my concerns and was able to overcome each one of them with grace & patience, as well as sell the house quickly! From start to finish Jeanne was a dream to work with.

This is the second time we've had Kelly Real Estate list our homes. We have total faith in their commitment to showing & selling our property. Jayme Folkedahl was always consistent in his approach to showing our condo. He communicated to us when a showing was scheduled and again when it was complete, including any buyer comments that could affect a sale. We will always list with him and Kelly Real Estate.
