Sometimes you have to sail away from the safe harbor and experience the world on your own before you can realize that the town you grew up in (if it’s anything like the town of Camden) is one of the best places you can choose to be. And that’s exactly what Kessler did.
Growing up in a family passionate about art, architecture, and real estate helped shape Kessler’s interests from a young age. However, Kessler wasn’t so sure how he would use these foundations in his own career until he graduated from Ithaca College and moved to Huntington Beach, California where he began his real estate career.
After a few years, Kessler decided to relocate back to Maine so he could experience the four-seasons again. Upon returning, he moved to Portland and obtained his Associate Broker’s License. He worked as the team coordinator for the number one RE/MAX team in New England for two years, and enjoyed every minute of it.
Returning to Camden was a natural progression from there. Kessler is proud to be a part of the wonderful business he has watched his father create, and he is happy to return to the close-knit community he has always called home. Kessler is on the board of directors for Mid Coast Habitat For Humanity and board for Maine Listings Policy and Procedures Committee
Kessler is an active, upbeat, team member with a distinguishable laugh. He loves to talk about houses, but he can also catch you up on the latest sports news. He will work hard to answer any questions you may have, and he places a high value on providing excellent customer service.
When he is not working with the team, Kessler enjoys working on home improvement projects and spending time outdoors with his wife, Adrienne, their son Desmond, daughter Arden and Bernese Mountain Dogs, Mady and Nell.
""Buying a house sight unseen can be a scary proposition, yet we felt completely confident in Kessler. He went above and beyond in every situation. His knowledge of the area and of architecture/construction are formidable. His response time to any call or email was prompt. I would recommend Kessler to anyone with no reservations!"" - Linda Pope
""Simply put, Kessler is great! I would 110% recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Mid-Coast Maine region. My husband and I started "casually" looking for a property in the Belfast/Lincolnville area a few months ago, and thanks to Kessler we are now happy owners of a beautiful house with ocean views in a great location. We randomly connected with Kessler via Zillow during a family visit, and from the get-go and throughout our process, he was very friendly responsive, and knowledgeable. After a few in-person and virtual showings, we found the "perfect" place and were ready to make an offer. In full transparency, my husband and I fell in love with the place and were ready to pay over asking without inspections...against which Kessler strongly (and smartly) advised. We followed his advice, and thank goodness! Given issues that came up during inspections, we were able to negotiate a lower price with the seller and therefore save some money for much-needed work on the property. From the time we made our offer to closing, Kessler was very helpful sending us updates on timelines, key deliverables, recommendations for lenders/inspectors/contractors (he has wealth of local contacts), and advice as we proceeded from making an offer to closing. We are very excited about our new home in Maine--many thanks to Kessler!"
