Happy Birthday CLS

The Central Listing Service at Ocean Reef (CLS) is celebrating its 25th year of service to Ocean Reef Club. The CLS has an interesting history, which dates back to when Ocean Reef Club was in its infancy, as a development owned by Harper Sibley. For many years there was only one real estate company on Ocean Reef called "Ocean Reef Properties." This one company handled all the new, Club-developed inventory of properties as well as the growing number of re-sales as members moved around within the Club. Soon, other real estate businesses began, each with their own listings, which made it difficult, if not impossible for a prospective buyer to know of everything available for sale. The solution was to create the CLS—a single source for all Ocean Reef listings. The goal was to enhance and simplify real estate services for customers. Throughout the years, CLS has helped to connect hundreds of buyers with brokers on The Reef.


We Mourn the Loss

We will announce services as soon as we have them.
