The DeWayne Carpenter / Kirk Kessel Homeselling Team represented the seller at 972 Terry Drive, a 3 bedroom canal front home in Melbourne’s Ballard Park. The property sold for $360,000.


After living in this charming canal front home for 16 years, the Sellers decided it was time for a change of scenery. They purchased a townhouse in Indian Harbour Beach and completely renovated it. After renovations were complete on their replacement property, the Sellers hired Carpenter / Kessel because they were impressed on how other properties listed by Carpenter / Kessel were presented on the web, social media, Homes and Land, Florida Today and direct mail. After taking the listing, it took a little bit of time to find the PERFECT buyer for this property. After this buyer saw the property, negotiations were a breeze and Carpenter / Kessel’s Client Concierge made sure it was a smooth process from contract signing to closing. In the end, the clients couldn’t be happier.
