My name is Sebastian E. Fernandes and I was born in the Cape Verde Islands, off the west coast of Africa. I immigrated to the United States and grew up in Boston, Ma. where I had the privilege of participating in high school sports of soccer, hockey and baseball. After graduating from High School, I enlisted in the US Army and served three years as a Military Policeman. While in the military I obtained an Associate Degree in Administration of Justice from Monterey Peninsula College, in Monterey, Ca. After completing my military duties, I returned to Boston where I attended Boston State College for one year. I joined the California Highway Patrol in 1980 and served in Southern California, where I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from California State University, San Bernardino. After 27 1/2 years with the Highway Patrol, I retired and moved my family to the Springfield area of Southwest Missouri.

With over 27 years of service to the State of California, as a Highway Patrolman, I have the experience necessary in providing professional service to the public. I bring to the greater Springfield area, a commitment to provide high quality professional real estate services that is based on integrity and honesty. I pledge to abide by the Realtor Code of Ethics, in providing the highest quality of service to all my customers, clients, and associates. As an associate with Murney Associates Realtors, since 2007, I am committed to the company's mission statement and teamwork philosophy. I am also committed to constant training and education to stay informed with the changes in the real estate business, so I can better serve the needs of my clients.

 

We love our new home and are so thankful to Sebastian as he was amazing in assisting us throughout our search for our first home. He went above and beyond the requirements of a good Realtor as he walked us through the different steps of purchasing property. As we looked at different houses he helped us thoroughly understand the ups and downs of each house, location, property, as well as all of the aspects concerning the details of buying a home. When the time came to make an offer on our current home, he had good, practical advice on how to move through the process of trying to buy a home. We are happy to have worked with Sebastian, and wholeheartedly recommend him as a realtor. His advice is sound, his help is consistent, and his skills in this field are very valuable to any buyer! Thank you Sebastian! Michael and Alyson Baker

"Sebastian Fernandes recently helped us sell our house and in a difficult market he did an outstanding job. I am especially grateful that he helped me to make sound decisions in a very stressful and emotional time. I am sure that without his guidance and patience I would have lost the sale. Thank you Sebastian."

"We recently moved to Missouri from California and the options of housing types was a bit overwhelming. We knew the number of bedrooms and bathrooms we wanted and that we really wanted a basement, but other than that we were a little lost as to where in the area we wanted to live and what were some of the important features we may like. Sebastian was very helpful in finding us areas to search as well as taking us to houses we had found on the internet. He was very helpful in getting us out to see a variety of houses and locations. Always ready to take us out and about the area... even braving fields of tick laden grasses to show us what we wanted to see. It was an overwhelming time moving from out-of-state and Sebastian made it seem very easy and doable. His calming presence, knowledge of the area and helpful nature made us feel welcome and ready to join the Missouri family!" Kirsten, Betty, & Nick
