The DeWayne Carpenter / Kirk Kessel Homeselling Team just sold 8790 S Highway A1A, a 4 bedroom riverfront pool home on 2.7 acres in Melbourne Beach, for $925,000.
We Succeed Where Others Have Failed. After failing to sell with another Broker, the owner of this home hired Carpenter / Kessel. With a price adjustment and a huge marketing push, Carpenter / Kessel was able to procure two offers, one of which was accepted. This is a prime example that marketing + competence + experience = RESULTS.
