WELCOME! | November 2023


Fall has arrived in full swing here in Indian River county. It seems that the recent cool front crisped things up a bit. Did you know that November is officially National Gratitude Month? Gratitude has been proven to generate a positive impact on psychological, physical, and personal wellbeing. Learning to be grateful helps us appreciate the little things in life that we tend to take for granted, which brings about a deep feeling of satisfaction that fulfills and nourishes us.

We DO have a lot to be thankful for. We live in an area that has a bounty of offerings to nourish our mind, body and soul. We here at AMAC are very grateful for our community and the people who make our area so unique. We believe in giving back to our community. Since 1949, our agents, staff and owners have donated thousands of volunteer hours and more than $1.5 million to lend a hand to those in need. We encourage you to make this November a special one - to recognize your blessings and to inspire your neighbors to do the same.

We invite you to see what's happening in and around Our Neighborhood. We are always open to your feedback about our newsletter content. Click here for past issues and feel free to share this with your family and friends.


Thusday, November 23rd is the United Against Poverty's annual 5K Turkey Trot. The wildly popular Thanksgiving Day Trot Against Poverty 5K is back for its 16th year. This is a professionally-timed race for runners, joggers and walkers of all ages and abilities. The Trot is more than a healthy start to your holiday…it’s also an unforgettable way to give back while you give thanks!

The goal of this community-based event is to raise funds and awareness for the nonprofit United Against Poverty, whose mission is to inspire and empower people living in poverty to lift themselves and their families to economic self-sufficiency.

- Honoring Native American Month -

Meet Our First Neighbors and their Bountiful Neighborhood, c. 1,000 B.C.

Imagine yourself walking along the shore of the Indian River searching for a fish to spear or a clump of oysters to collect for dinner. Our former neighbors did just this more than 3,000 years ago. Researchers have learned that a tribe known as the Ais (Ah-es) people were some of the first residents who established their settlements in the current Vero Beach area in about 1,000 B.C. READ MORE

Unmasking Banksy – the street artist is not one man but a whole brand of people. There have been many investigations into the artist’s identity and it has been the topic of serious journalistic and academic investigation for years, but no one has been able to absolutely link Robin Gunningham and Banksy.

Rural America is booming, but the population growth that’s boosting local economies post pandemic is also putting a strain on everything from schools to housing costs and roads...a trend that has sparked resentment.

Want the perfect comebacks for scornful or disrespectful remarks? Here's how to flummox your foes with the finest vocabulary using these clever insults courtesy of Merriam-Webster.

Florida is tied for number one! Yep, we tied number one in population growth for 2021-22. Some say that the influx of 463,000 more residents may be due to the state's lax COVID protocols and the geography of where money is made in the U.S. as many higher-income Americans decamped from big cities.

Meet British artist Justin Bateman who, to date has made 120 masterpiece portraits out of over 1 million stones on beaches and in forest clearings. His work is striking in its level of detail and scale, with pieces ranging in size from 10 to 80 square feet.

As a former, and hopefully lifelong AMAC client, or neighbor of an agent, the referral of your friends and family is the greatest compliment you can give.

Thank you for your trust.
