Hi there and thanks for taking the time to visit our website. AlbatrossLady.com was originally created to market my aviation real estate and provide information about the Albatross to interested aviators. AlbatrossLady.com also includes information on our personal business, Land Air & Sea Restorations, and for marketing our restored airplanes, but the main focus remains aviation properties in North Central Florida.
The name "Albatross Lady" was an email name that my husband assigned when we set up our first personal email addresses in Florida. I was not to happy about it, but at the time, I did not have the computer skills to change my own email address. I got used to it over time and when I started selling aviation real estate it was easy for people to remember so I created the "Albatross Lady.com" website to market airpark properties.
It was our dream to live at an airpark when we sold our business and retired to Florida in 1997. John & I moved to Eagles Nest Aerodrome and Seaplane Base from the Atlanta area. We chose Eagles Nest for the seaplane base and the country setting and still enjoy living here today. We enjoy living a life centered around aviation and the camaraderie that comes with living in a community with people of similar interests.
I have been flying since 1991. I am qualified in single and multi-engine land and seaplanes and rated in the Grumman Albatross. What we have really enjoyed is traveling extensively in the Albatross, "Our Flying Winnebago". We have a lifestyle that is filled with many exciting adventures. We now have years of Albatross adventures, air shows and numerous cross country trips in our logbooks. We enjoyed being awarded Judges Choice at the 2004 Lakeland "Sun'N Fun Show" as the Best Flying Yacht. In 2005, we performed as the intermission entertainment at Budweiser Columbia Cup Tri-City Water Follies Unlimited Light Hydroplane boat competition in Pasco, Washington. We were briefly featured in the last part of The Travel Channels "Private Jets" program done with John Travolta.
I was featured on the September 2, 2007 cover of General Aviation News, for the "Living With Your Plane" publication. This cover was also selected and used for the General Aviation News advertisement in the Aviation For Women magazine. Stories have also been featured in International Publications such as May 2008, Aviasport Magazine (French), January-February 2008 Pilotes Magazine, and February 2008 Today's Pilot Magazine.
All those places, all those planes, and pilots everywhere. It just felt right for me to put my sales and marketing background to work selling Aviation Real Estate. Dealing with our own association, I learned valuable lessons about the management of an airpark, understanding all the associated community documents, and the issues that can arise that have to be dealt with and handled by the Boards of Directors. I went on to obtain my brokers license to offer the highest caliber service to my clients. Matching pilots with properties has been my focus for the last years. My involvement in aviation events, seaplane activities and numerous communities has allowed me to develop a strong knowledge base for my clients to rely on. With AlbatrossLady.com booth representation at the Sun'N Fun Annual Fly In and the Sebring Light Sport Aviation Expo, your property will get excellent exposure in the aviation market.
Whether it is matching runway requirements to buyers aircraft or helping to select the community environment that will most suit your lifestyle and personal growth, I will work with you to find the aviation property of your dreams.
I work hard and I play hard. I am up front and honest. I am far from perfect and I won't always say what you want to hear, but I work with integrity and professionalism.
