“Our family, Karen and I, and our company, have been working with Russell Post for more than 20 years. In all that time, we have found Russ and his associates to be honest, above-board, prompt, and responsive to our needs. In addition, and most important to us, is the fact that Russ has more knowledge about Ocean Reef than does any other realtor. Time and again, when we have had an issue, Russ has been able to find an answer for us and help us work things out to our satisfaction. Russell’s friendship with so many people at the Reef and his knowledge of all things at the Reef is extremely valuable.”

“My family and I have enjoyed a “Very Special Place” since the late 60s. Much has changed, but Russ Post and his service to the Reef and its members have never changed! It has always been top shelf! Russ has made my family’s experience extraordinary! Since Russ is no longer running the Ocean Reef Club and have established your own real estate business, he has provided me with awesome service and advice – nobody knows the Reef like Russ does! Congratulations and keep up the great services only you can provide!”

“Spring of 2015 we decided it was time for us to move back to Ft. Lauderdale and within a month we had a contract and the closing process began. Every step necessary to take was handled by Marcy with such ease and enthusiasm. Any question we had was answered with, ‘it has been taken care of already’.  Russ and Marcy did everything they said they would do to find us a great buyer and effect our sale. We closed in August. We hope the buyers are enjoying our home and Ocean Reef as much as we did. Thank you Russell and Marcy!”
