Team Leaders

Kirk Kessel & DeWayne Carpenter of The Carpenter | Kessel Homeselling Team just SOLD the Art Deco style home at 9094 S Tropical Trail on Merritt Island, Florida for $887,500.

Success Story

The owners of this property tried to sell it on their own for two months with limited showings and no offers to speak of. Frustrated with their results, they researched agents in the area and decided that Kirk and Dewayne had the experience and process to help them reach their goals.

Once listed, the CK team had an offer on the first day that wasn’t acceptable but the sellers were happy coming from no activity to an offer they could say NO to. After fully launching the listing we had 3 showings and within two weeks another offer came in, this time resulting in a contract.
