It was very early in her career that Julie sold our airport home. At that time she was very knowledgable, enthusiastic and hardworking, bringing us a stream of qualified buyers. We have seen Julie from time to time over the years since then and none of those qualities have diminished.....in fact they seem to have increased. She is a warm and caring person who gave us excellent advice. To any one interested in buying or selling in an aviation setting we would highly recommend that you see Julie.

Julie Fetcko did a great job selling our riverfront lot at Mount Royal Fly-In. I had tried other Realtor's without success for nearly five years. Within a short period of time she procured a qualified buyer and guided everyone to a safe landing. Thank you Julie for being the top gun.

When we first met I liked you from the beginning. You were truly professional in all your dealings with me while advertising and selling my home at Haller Airpark. Although it took a while, you were successful in finding just the right individual who really wanted my house and hangar. Dale Evans has expressed to me on more than one occasion how much he likes the place and has promised to keep it up as I did.

Julie did a fantastic job, working with my Realtor, John Freeman, in the purchase of my property at Haller Air Park. Her experience with fly-in properties showed, in her professional approach and knowledge in dealing with these unique properties.
Always available, and easily contacted, she had the answers to the numerous questions I asked, concerning Mr. Butler's listing. She was instrumental in the rapid contract agreement, and closing that went off as scheduled, and issue free.
I would highly recommend Julie to anyone looking to buy or sell aviation community properties!

I represented the buyer and you represented the seller on a property at Haller Air Park that we just closed. I wanted you to know that your relationshjip with the seller, and transaction in total, was very professional and in-depth. While I am also a pilot, it was obvious that your specialization in airports and "fly-in" communities was very important, especially when it came to finding competitive properties for the appraisal. A "fly-in" community is unique and difficult for an appraiser to value because he/she cannot use properties in the immediate area that lenders typically require, but have to use other properties in airport communities in a much broader area. Your expertise in providing the appraiser with such properties was greatly appreciated. I am not one to easily give up a potential listing, but I would suggest you to any seller with a property in a "fly-in" community, Thanks!

We want to thank you for all the work you did with the sale of our Villa in Eagles Landing at the Winter Haven Airport in Florida. Not only are you a joy to work with but you are extremely efficient. We were very pleased with how you handled all the transactions and would highly recommend you to anyone wanting to sell their home.

Julie is great at what she does...and she does it all with an amazing "can do" attitude that exudes her love for her work AND her life as an accomplished pilot. She handled a rental for us in Eagles Nest and made sure we felt at home from the moment we arrived. There were some glitches as the home had just gone through some remodeling and she was very responsive to the last few details that had to be worked out to make our stay there comfortable. We are looking for airpark property to purchase in Florida and Julie spent hours giving us invaluable information that would have taken us weeks to figure out on our own. She has unique insights to airpark living because she is both a resident and a pilot. She is also an experienced real estate agent who understandes the unique considerations of buying and selling in the aviation property market. We feel much more prepared to make our move, regardless of whether it involves building our dream home or finding an existing home in a Florida airpark community.

As a Brit visiting Sun N Fun I was attracted to a stand displaying photographs of airparks. We don't have these in Britain but to own one in Florida would be a dream come true. My friends and I were shown a superb house by Lake Clinch in Central Florida, it had a large hangar and was adjacent to a 3000 ft. runway.
The realtor (we call them Estate Agents in England) offered to arrange a viewing and we took some time from the show to visit the house. Not only was the house beautiful, the agent Julie Fetcko was extremely well informed about the house, it's history and the area and when we decided to make an offer, Julie helped us all the way through what turned out to be a smooth and enjoyable transaction.
After the house was ours, Julie became a personal friend as she offered us advice and assistance when we bought a Cessna 172, and as a result of her introductions we made some new friends amongst our neighbors and the seaplane flying community in Florida.
I would have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending "The Albatross Lady" to anyone thinking of buying an airpark home in the United States.

Thanks to Julie Fetcko we now have a fabulous house at Lake Clinch Airpark. Not only was Julie professional and knowledgeable about the ins and outs of buying a house in Florida, she ensured that the sale of the house went through quickly and oversaw to all the small details even making sure the house was thoroughly clean upon our arrival. She has become a personal friend and I would have not problem recommending anyone interested in airpark homes to make Julie their first point of call.
First class service from a first class girl.

In my many years of real estate transactions I have never had a more successful and pleasant experience than those in which Julie Fetcko has been my agent. She has represented me as both buyer and the seller. Julie takes the time to totally familiarize herself with the needs and goals of all parties and brings to the transaction integrity, wisdom, and reality. She always goes the extra mile to be knowledgeable in all aspects of the transaction and is scrupulous when following up on any unanticipated issues that may arise. As a surgeon I know that there is no substitute for preparedness and diligence. Julie approaches all her dealings with the same philosophy and is my agent because of it.

Approximately five years ago, we met The Albatross Lady, Julie Fetcko, at Sun-N-Fun. We kept her business card, knowing that some day in the future, she would be the real estate agent to contact when we decided to look for a home in Florida. She is a professional through and through! This past spring, we did purchase a home in Mount Royal Airpark with Julie as our broker. This was not your average sale as the house was a short sale which involves a tremendous amount of work by the agent. Julie, being the knowledgeable, professional she is, eased the purchase and handled every detail necessary to close this sale in a timely manner. She also helped with all the big and small details of buying a house, after the sale, since we normally live in Omaha, NE, and were not able to be in florida after we purchased our home. We are really thankful that Julie was our agent!

I just got back from a wonderful two week visit to my new home in the Mount Royal Airpark Community of Welaka, FL. Residing in California, it was a concern of mine in purchasing a second home in Florida without being there on a day to day basis to monitor things. I want to thank you for your professional attention to every matter and detail of my purchase. Especially a big thank-you for your after sale follow up attention in helping get the house in order while I was in California so I could enjoy it right away on my first visit. Again, thanks for everything,
