Glowing sunsets, water so clear you can watch the ocean sea life scurry around. Boat rides to the sandbars and diving for lobster on the reefs are just a few of the pleasures the Florida Keys has to offer! Ask Shane “Waterfront” Wilson and Derek Rodberg!

Raised in the Keys, they grew up fishing, diving, boating, skiing, and tubing while navigating the islands with their boats. These childhood friends and now business partners have never lost their passion for the waterfront lifestyle in the Florida Keys. Their roots remain planted in the Keys. Shane's children have spent so much time in the Keys, they were considered “keys kids,” and Derek’s kids attend the local schools.

Shane and Derek joined together to open Real Living Cypress Realty, Inc. in Islamorada. Each of them bringing their own experiences to create a strong partnership that both buyers and sellers benefit from. Trust, honesty, knowledge of the local market, insight of today’s market and their genuine passion are just a few of the building blocks their foundation is built on.

How Shane Earned the Name "Waterfront"!

Shane "Waterfront" Wilson
Shane "Waterfront" Wilson

Shane always has had a passion for water. It was only natural that Shane became Shane “Waterfront” Wilson. Everywhere Shane goes people know him as “Waterfront.” He was raised on the water his entire life. Shane was boating long before he got his driver’s license, it was his means of transportation. He and his buddies got around by boat. When they wanted to head north to Key Largo, they took the boat. If they wanted to head down to Islamorada or farther south to Lower Maticumbe Key, they took the boat.

Shane knows almost every channel, wheel cut, nook, and cranny when it comes to the Florida Keys waterways. He’s familiar with most every canal, boat basin, creek, and marina from Key Largo down towards Marathon and Key West. For over 40 years, Shane boated, fished, dove, snorkeled, spear fished and navigated the Florida Keys water - yes, 40+ years! Read more...
