The Carpenter | Kessel Team’s vision is to modernize and progress the experience of buying and selling real estate by cultivating a spirit of collaboration, innovation, and integrity.

A team will always outperform an individual. Each team member has a specific and vital role to play in selling your home. There are no second string players at Carpenter | Kessel.


We believe the consumer deserves a better quality agent experience. Unlike agents that go at it alone, we are a team of professionals that will service the seller, the property and potential buyers more effectively due to the fact that we work and collaborate together. We are more productive and have a greater network of clients than a single agent, delivering better service to the consumer.

DeWayne Carpenter and Kirk Kessel
In addition to referring them to friends, Local Knowledge, Process Expertise, Negotiation Skills, I would like to add Professionalism, Responsiveness, Creativity and Attention to detail to the list of five stars. I could see this team writing the book on Process Expertise. Their business principals are inspiring and we were really pleased with the whole experience!

DeWayne Carpenter and Kirk Kessel
My experience with the Carpenter/Kessel team was fantastic. Fully prepared with a detailed presentation & discussion regarding our unit, thoughts, needs & reality, we quickly agreed on pricing & signed an agreement. Things were happening quickly & Dewayne & his team were constantly on top of all going on & communicating with us via phone & text messages from that point on. The entire process from meeting with Dewayne & Kirk & communicating with their Team to Closing took a total of 19 days. Unbelievable & such a great experience. I highly recommend the Carpenter/Kessel very Professional Team.

Amy Kalman
I’ve used Amy as my agent on several occasions and she is honestly in a league of her own when it comes to responsiveness (anytime of day or night), local knowledge of the real estate market, and overall professionalism. At this point I will not use an agent other than Amy and recommend her with the utmost confidence to all of my friends and family.

Stuart Brown
Super fast sale. Represented us well. Very trust worthy and I highly recommend. He has a great marketing team and presented our house wonderfully. Handled also some closing issues with ease. Best realtor we have ever worked with.

Shane Burgman
I have never worked with a realtor like Shane. He is hard working and keeps you informed of what is going on with the property. I had property that I had to sell quickly….put it on the market and in less than a month he had it sold. I would highly recommend Shane to anyone!!!!

Ashley Gardner
Ashley was our advocate from minute one! Her professionalism, patience, and positive attitude made our entire home selling and buying experience a pleasure. The Carpenter/Kessel team’s comprehensive marketing plan was amazing, and our old home was sold to the FIRST buyers to walk through the door. We were delighted.
