“I really believe in doing the right thing. Ethics matter. Do the right thing for yourself, your family, your co-workers, your friends, and your clients. Always.”

Cheri has always found real estate intriguing. In fact, even as a young woman living in California, Cheri loved the idea of making someone’s dreams come true by helping them find a home they cherish.

But life had other plans: Cheri and her husband Stan had three children, and being a stay-at-home mom felt like her calling. School beckoned once the kids were older, so Cheri decided to pursue an AA degree through Iowa Central Community College in Fort Dodge. Her determination and hard work paid off early: Cheri was offered a job at Land O’ Lakes before she could even graduate. The position led to several other jobs in the farming industry, but soon Cheri realized that her early morning schedule left her with valuable extra time on her hands. Not one to sit idle, Cheri moved forward with what she’s always wanted to do.

She became a real estate agent.                                 

After 2 years of selling homes with another company, Cheri joined RE/MAX Partners in early 2014. Although she still considers herself a lake property expert and enjoyed selling property in the area — “It’s easy to sell what you love,” she says —  Cheri maintains that her introduction to her current team made all the difference in how she felt about the industry as a whole.

“I knew what the real estate industry should look like, how it should be. But it was RE/MAX Partners’ commitment to values and ethics that really made me feel like I was home,” Cheri enthuses. “Matt [Karjalahti] isn’t just my boss. He’s a real leader who offers us guidance, incredible training, and a true team atmosphere. To sum it all up, we’re family.”

When Cheri isn’t enjoying her Holiday Lake home with Stan and their black Lab Molly (as well as doting on her 9 grandchildren), she’s offering Grinnell and its surrounding areas her real estate expertise and loving every second of it.

If your family is looking for a new place to call home and wants an agent who puts them first, call Cheri at 515-210-2668.
