Top Producing Carpenter | Kessel Team Joins Dale Sorensen Real Estate Brevard
INDIALANTIC, FL., JANUARY 2015 – Dale Sorensen Real Estate Brevard (DSRE Brevard) is pleased to announce the addition of a Top Producing Luxury Real Estate Team to the company’s growing list of sales professionals. DeWayne Carpenter and Kirk Kessel have joined Dale Sorensen Real Estate Brevard.
“We are truly excited to have such a top producing team join our company,” said Scott Reynolds, Director of Business Development for DSRE Brevard. “They are well known throughout the community for their dynamic personalities, knowledge of the luxury real estate market and aggressive marketing techniques. They are a welcome addition to our team and we look forward to working alongside them.”
The Team’s numbers prove their intrinsic understanding of the Brevard County waterfront and luxury real estate market. With over $35 million sold in 2013, more than $33 million sold in 2014 and more waterfront transactions than any other agent or team in South Brevard County from 2009 – 2014 (over 131 waterfront transactions) they are the leaders in their niche market. Several key sales have led to the success of the dynamic duo, including the highest closed sale for an Intracoastal home in South Melbourne Beach (7920 A1A) this year; the highest oceanfront sale in South Melbourne Beach (6109 Hwy A1A); the highest sale in Lansing Island this year, which is also the highest riverfront sale in Brevard for the year (151 Lansing); the highest price per square foot sale for an Intracoastal home in South Melbourne Beach (275 Sea Crest); a total of 26 Waterfront Transactions this year totaling 131 Waterfront transactions from 2009 – 2014 (waterfront defined as navigable water or oceanfront); more condo sales in the Buccaneer than any other agent; and finally more condo sales in Ocean Sands than any other agent.
The Team instinctively knew joining Dale Sorensen Real Estate was the right choice for them. “We chose to partner with DSRE because the culture and management at this company is quite similar to ours,” said Carpenter. “DSRE believes, as we do, in hard work, ethics, honesty and offering superior customer service to our clients.”
Kessel added that the marketing tools offered by DSRE are an added benefit. “We feel that DSRE offers an additional marketing leg to our business with their sales affiliations. Utilizing international sales affiliations such as Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, Luxury Portfolio International, and Mayfair International Realty and being an exclusive member of the Board of Regents in Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate will benefit both our team and our customers. DSRE has very strong and important affiliations within the luxury market.”
Carpenter is considered one of the most knowledgeable oceanfront condo and waterfront property specialists in Brevard County. With over 19 years of experience, Carpenter knows the importance of staying on top of market trends, and is well known for giving his clients valuable, analytical insight into the current real estate environment. He understands and, more importantly, can succinctly explain to his customers the relative benefits of beachside and waterfront ownership as well as the unique financial calculus that the market requires. “I have an in-depth understanding of individual beachside neighborhoods and what makes them special,” said Carpenter. He is proficient at understanding the constantly changing market dynamics and evolving consumer behavior in addition to being a highly qualified and skilled negotiator dedicated to ensuring a successful transaction for his buyers and sellers. Carpenter has been a top performer for the past 17 years.
Kessel, one of the most trusted and seasoned agents in the Melbourne area, has experience on all sides of real estate transactions – as a real estate agent, investor, as an adviser and as a syndicator and developer. Kessel founded his own real estate company in 1986 selling it in 2001 to a local builder and his family. In 2009 he teamed up with Carpenter specializing in waterfront and beachside properties. “What I love about the real estate business is that even after 30 years of selling real estate, every transaction is different.” Kirk said. “In a very short time you discover each deal takes on a challenge of its own and I love the challenge of reaching my goal, which is ultimately satisfying my clients.”
Kessel is committed to giving back to the local community. Over the past 30 years he and his team have participated on several boards and foundations including The American Cancer Society, The American Heart Association, Melbourne Area Association of Realtors Grievance committee, Ad Astra Florida Tech and the Board for the Maxx W. Kessel Foundation. In addition, he is a member of the Melbourne Area Board of Realtors. Kessel serves the real estate needs of customers of Melbourne Beach, Indialantic, Indian Harbour Beach, Satellite Beach, Merritt Island and surrounding communities.
