Opened in 1989, Carey & Guarrera is a full service real estate office servicing the Southern Connecticut area. The company is owned by Shelton residents Pat Carey and Jim Guarrera and is located in the historic Benjamin DeForest House at 59 Old Shelton Road in Huntington Center.

Pat and Jim are former Shelton school teachers and first met while teaching at Fowler School which is now Shelton City Hall. Pat taught Science and Jim was a Math teacher.
