Ocean Reef: Home Sweet Home

Nestled along the vibrant aquamarine coastal waters on the northernmost tip of Key Largo is a quiet, secluded community, where living in paradise isn’t a desire, it’s a reality.

Intrigued? We thought so. Welcome to the beautiful Ocean Reef Club, a residential community in the Florida Keys, full of history and heritage. What started as a modest fishing camp has evolved into one of the most remarkable clubs in the world. Located against the only living Coral Reef in US waters, the 2,500 scenic acres include a variety of waterfront estates, private homes, and condos, along with 175-slip marina, two pristine championship golf courses, private beach, and saltwater lagoon. For more than sixty years, generations upon generations of families have come together to live in the quiet serenity of Ocean Reef’s natural surroundings.

Mary Lee, Ocean Reef’s premier real estate agent, has been devoted to the selling of the club’s assorted luxury properties for years. As an associate of Russell Post Sotheby’s International Realty, her current listings include a 63-acre private island, several waterfront properties, and some of the club’s most lavish condominiums. Mary has also been a resident of Ocean Reef for more than 25 years and is an active club member; she is one of the founding families of The Academy at Ocean Reef and is on the board of Grayvik Animal Care, a wonderful facility with an on staff veterinarian to look after the hundreds of members’ cats and dogs–all testaments to her genuine love of Ocean Reef and the community.

Not only does Mary boast a first-rate real estate office in the heart of Ocean Reef, but she also recently launched her signature boat tours. The idea is simple, yet genius; she takes potential buyers onto her boat, “Reef Explorer,” and provides mini-excursions around the property. The tours have proven to be both innovative and effective in marketing Ocean Reef’s properties. She also has an exceptional website, www.maryleepresentsoceanreef.com, which features information about Ocean Reef, her boat tours, and photos of all her exquisite listings.
