Kirk Kessel & DeWayne Carpenter of the DeWayne Carpenter | Kirk Kessel Homeselling Team just SOLD 8620 S Tropical Trail, Merritt Island, FL 32952 for $1,100,000.


Success Story

The owner of this riverfront home on Merritt Island’s prestigious South Tropical Trail was a repeat customer of Kirk & DeWayne. When she needed to sell her home, they were the only choice, as she already knew the professionalism and expertise that comes with hiring The Carpenter | Kessel Homeselling Team. After a short time on the market, and a few offers that just weren’t up to par, the perfect buyers came along. They were represented by a licensed agent, however this agent was not a member of the local Board of REALTORS. This meant the Carpenter | Kessel Team had to spring into action, offering additional support to the buyer’s agent. Knowing the seller’s needs, Kirk and DeWayne were able to negotiate the perfect outcome for their seller, all while catering to agent on the opposite side. This was accomplished through collaboration within the Carpenter | Kessel Team. Having a team makes all the difference. It allowed us to successful navigate a sale that otherwise may not have occurred.
