Art was one of my mentors at Landmark Real Estate when I started in 1989. He was kind, very methodical, talented and always had time to answer my questions and help others. He will be missed in our community. So long Art; see you later!

One of the nicest men I have had the pleasure of dealing with. He always had a good word for me, a real gentleman.

I feel very blessed to have married into the Kessler family. A few of Art's traits that I really admired were that he worked hard, he took risks to re-invent his career to support his family, and he didn't wait for someone else to volunteer – he was someone else. In the 1980's when the local Safeway store was selling TV's for cheaper than he could purchase them and the video business he had added to the store was being undercut by bigger chains, he decided to join the big stores and sold appliances for Silo. That was hard work, but he was honest and had more than his fair share of "be back" inquirers come back and purchase from him time and again. He saw even Silo had tough competition and small margins and small commissions, so he re-invented his career again. He studied and got his real estate license and thought he could combine partial retirement in Sequim with his new career at the age of 63. He enjoyed selling real estate and was very successful at it. He set a good example for the family and all of them learned to work hard, take responsibility for making your own opportunities, and to volunteer when things need to be done. God bless you Art and thank you!
