Once up and running, a reef is pretty simple so long as you start out right. That means thorough research and the right gear. You'll need to get the tank equipment, plus the support equipment (ro/di, test kits, etc.) to be successful.

The learning curve is pretty steep, but once you get a stable tank and understand what keeps it stable, it's not difficult.

Important caveat: that advice is for a simple mixed reef. There are some set ups that are very complicated and difficult to maintain. Those people typically are keeping more sensitive animals.
