August 31, 2018 – Jeff Husby, owner and general manager of Regal & Nautique of Orlando, and Julie Bettosini, award-winning real estate agent with Stockworth Realty, joined us today for an update on the waterfront community in Central Florida. Everything from the most popular water sports activity, to what lakefront properties are on the market now, was discussed.
Florida has more than 30,000 lakes, 600+ in Orange County and more than 100 lakes just in Orlando! Orlando is world-renowned for its lakes and two top lakefront experts give major insights.
“Living on the water has become my lifestyle,” said Julie Bettosini, one of the region’s top lakefront property specialist. Currently on track to have another record-setting year selling over $50 million in real estate, Julie knows the Orlando lakes like the back of her hand.
A few amazing properties discussed are currently for sale, including Carmel, which is one of the last gems of Windermere located on the Butler Chain of Lakes. Highly sought-after and unattainable for years, until now. Carmel is a privately gated community ideally located in southwest Orlando, in the heart of Dr. Phillips, just a boat ride away from Isleworth Golf & Country Club and minutes from award-winning restaurants and more! Located on Lake Tibet of the Chain, there are 13 total lots, with nine waterfront and only one left!

The Butler Chain of Lakes is the most pristine body of water. Many athletes, musicians and famous people live on the Chain.
The other significant Chain of Lakes in Central Florida is the Winter Park Chain. It is near downtown, centrally located, with lots of history and beautiful homes. Located directly on Lake Osceola of the Winter Park Chain of Lakes, a 2.25-acre lakefront crown jewel is currently for sale on one of Old Winter Park’s most prestigious estate lots.

Specialty lakes are prime spots for those who love to ski and fish with privacy. Another last piece of undeveloped land on a specialty lake is now available! Known as Lake Olivia Reserve, this 86-acre lakefront community sits on a spring-fed, private lake. 12 home-sites or lots are for sale in this luxury community located within the sought-after Windermere region of Southwest Orange County.
When choosing a lake to live on, choose what fits your needs best. Jeff and his team at Nautique are ready to help you find the right boat to match your lakefront dream home.
“Just like trying to find a home on the water, we are going to make sure we find all the right needs for a boat,” Jeff Husby informed us. There are so many boat options to choose from – you may want a fish boat, ski boat, pontoon, personal watercraft, waterskiis, tubes, surf boards, etc.
Jeff keeps us informed with the latest trends in watercraft. “The hottest thing right now is wake surfing,” Jeff Husby states. You can be any age and there is really no impact on a fall for wake surfing. It is a water sport for everybody! Jeff goes out with his family and always has a good time.
It’s very important you have the right representative to help guide you during your purchase of a boat or watercraft to best fit your needs. Regal & Nautique of Orlando was just recently ranked #17 of 4,500 dealers in the US! To learn more about boats or to contact them, visit www.orlandoboats.com.
A former professional water skier, lakefront property specialist Julie Bettosini, reminds us not to forget about our return on lakefront properties – “it is not just for your family and for fun, but it is a great investment as well.”
Julie and Jeff work together when showcasing lakefront homes by creating private showings by boats for VIP clients.
“I’ve been in this business a long time and there is no one more knowledgeable in lakefront properties than Julie,” Jeff Husby stated.
