This month we spotlight OAR member Michael Kessinger from Emerald Coast Realty in Depoe Bay, Oregon. Being part of the real estate business for 6 years, he continues to enjoy the work. “I always wanted to be an entrepreneur and help people in the process.”
Since 2003, Michael has been advancing his skills and expanding his role into other opportunities in the Real Estate business, getting a home inspectors license and running the Blue Badge Home Inspections. His advice to someone just starting out? “You get what you put into it.” He understands its hard work; he says he is “always grateful for the opportunities Real Estate has given him.”
Michael is currently the Lincoln County MLS RPAC President and is on the scholarship committee and the community outreach committee. He’s organized two bowling events that helped raise over $6,500 for local homeless students and also arranged an RPAC dinner which raised almost $3,000.
Michael spends his free time attending Blazer and 49er’s games, camping, and spending time at the lake and beach with his german shepard, Willis. His bucket list includes traveling to Australia, having a vacation home in Maui, and doing open mic for stand-up comedy. Here’s to one day breaking a leg at the comedy club, Michael!
