Faye, Residential Vendor
My house was only on the market for 5 days. Within that time, it had 4 viewings and 3 offers!! A lot more action than the last estate agents we used.
Thank you Richard and the team – always friendly and approachable
Christine - Residential Vendor
We chose to sell our house with Taylors Estates as we found their approach and honesty when it came to selling our home refreshing. They gave us lots of pointers in how to make our home more appealing to buyers and Richard even conducted all of our viewings for us. Taylors Estates found us a buyer within 3 months of the property going on the market and the sales process went smoothy, with regular updates from the team along the way. Thank you!
Gary - Residential Landlord
I’ve been using Taylors Estates to manage my rental property portfolio for over 4 years now and they are a breath of fresh air compared to other property management companies I have used in the past. My tenants are always fully vetted and the appropriate checks are done to ensure the right tenants for my properties. Taylors Estate’s ongoing management gives me peace of mind and takes the stress out of being a landlord.
Anne - Residential Buyer
Richard and the team at Taylors Estates were so helpful during our recent property purchase. They made communication between ourselves and the seller seamless and they always made sure we were kept up to date with where the sale was up to, something that I think made the purchase process much more straight forward. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them.
Graham - Residential Vendor
Within a few hours of the house going on the market, Richard had called to let us know that there was interest already. Within a few weeks we had an offer which we accepted. We couldn’t believe how simple Richard made this for us from start to finish, he kept us updated throughout the process. Would definitely recommend them, first class service.
