“I’ve been interested in aviation all my life, and a general aviation pilot for four years,” he said. A realtor since 2005, he deals in both commercial and residential properties for Wagner Realty. “I’ve made aviation my real estate niche, working with pilots and people who fly on business and for business in and around Sarasota/Bradenton.”

A member of the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) and the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), Riggs said he embraces the contributions business and general aviation make to the local community, and he understands the aviation-related requirements associated with his clients commercial or residential needs – whether they fly themselves or arrive at SRQ in a business or chartered aircraft.

“And then I give them a No Plane No Gain pin and enlist them in the cause,” he said.
