It has been said in business that you can’t do today’s job with yesterday’s methods and expect to be in business tomorrow. With over 45 years of combined experience selling waterfront and luxury real estate in Brevard County, no one understands this fact better than The Carpenter Kessel Homeselling Team. Boasting nearly $30 million in sales in 2012, DeWayne Clyde Carpenter and Kirk Kessel both agree that this striking accomplishment is due to the way they work with and relate to each other. “Kirk and I have a unique friendship and business relationship,” says Carpenter. “We understand our success is due primarily to hard work and strong ties in our community. We value our clients and their referrals; we don’t take those relationships for granted. We are appreciative of it. But we are also very appreciative of each other. One of my greatest successes was to team up with Kirk Kessel.” Partners since 2009, Carpenter and Kessel are personally invested in seeing the community thrive and prosper. Combining their knowledge of high-end buyers, sellers and markets has created an intellectual asset greater than the sum of its parts that gives them a distinct advantage in cultivating multimilliondollar deals. Their goal is to educate, raise consumer awareness on changing market conditions, and level the playing field for both buyers and sellers. Kessel says, “The secret to our success is no secret. It is simply a combination of networking, strategy, prompt service, availability, marketing, experience and intuition.” The partners work in a very organic way. Upon meeting them it is easy to see their amazing synergy. Carpenter is very intense and fast paced. He is very quick to analyze, prioritize and take action. He also thrives on the marketing side of the business. Kessel is relationship management. He excels in building really strong relationships and is without a doubt one of the most trusted and seasoned agents in the Melbourne area. That blend of abilities is what gives them such tremendous potential.
