Timothy Taylor is the founder, owner and President of Ocean Reef. He founded Ocean Reef with his wife, Becky, in 1982.
Tim and Becky met in Waikiki, where he was in the hotel business after attending the University of Hawaii College of Business Administration. They enjoyed diving and fishing together in Hawaii until Tim received an offer from Sandestin Resort. The spectacular fishing and diving opportunities of the Destin region made it an easy change.
Seven years later, Tim and Becky had the opportunity to start a business featuring vacation
rentals and real estate sales– Ocean Reef.
Over 30 years, Ocean Reef has grown from a small, two-person business venture to one
of the largest vacation rental and real estate companies on the emerald coast. Today, Ocean Reef employs 12 real estate agents and 30 full time rental agents. In vacation season, the staff can swell to over 250 people. Ocean Reef recently opened a second office located between Alys and Rosemary Beach on scenic hwy 30-A.
