Presented by the City of Sebastian, Sebastian Lion's Club, and Sebastian Masonic Lodge #232

Celebrate America's independence this year with a patriotic parade that features locally made floats that roll down Indian River Drive to Riverview Park. Festivities continue with live music, food vendors, contests, and of course, fireworks!

This family-friendly event invites folks to get out and visit participating local businesses during the summer. Many locations will be providing music, door prizes, and other entertainment. Summer sales and specials will also be available at most locations and event-goers will be able to savor deliciously grilled nibbles as they stroll from business to business.

Thomas Durden Bio:

My number one goal is to help my clients make the best decisions for themselves.
I realize it is important to have confidence in your Realtor. I have lived and worked in Indian River County for 20 years. I know all aspects of the county such as schools, neighborhoods, property values, and distinctions between the barrier islands and the mainland.

At Real Broker, we will analyze your needs and provide necessary information for your situation. That might include either purchasing a single family home, condominium, or a luxury home on the waterfront in Orchid Island, Indian River Shores, Barefoot Bay, Micco, Roseland, Winter Beach, Palm Bay, Sebastian, as well as Vero Beach. No matter the area, I can help you secure the home of your dreams.

“I will be the first to say how picky and a pain I can be but Tom was Always there, no matter what questions I had or if I had any problems. He was a rock to anchor to in what sometimes felt like a hurricane. He made everything as easy as possible (paperwork, what to do, who to contact). I would recommend him time and time again. Selling our house was a breeze with him.
I look forward to using him in the purchase our next house.” – Anexa O.

Sean M. Facey Bio:

I have a diverse background, having worked in journalism, politics, software, green-technology and financial services. I am originally from Boston, a UMASS/Boston alum, English/Poli
Sci undergrad with a Master of Science in public affairs. One of my deepest passions is the protection and preservation of the environment. My decision to relocate to Sebastian, FL was heavily influenced by its natural beauty and strong history of conservationism.
Another of my deepest passions is helping people. Having been a small business owner, individual investor and Edward Jones client for many years, and experiencing first hand the benefits to my life of solid financial guidance from a financial advisor who got to know me personally and who I knew I could trust, I wanted to help others in the same way.
While we all come from different backgrounds and walks of life, we all share a deep desire to be listened to and understood and that is at the heart of the relationship and partnership I have with my clients: listening to them, understanding them, understanding what is most important to them, and ultimately, devising and implementing strategies for success that are specific to and all about them.
