My experience with Steve was great. Here are a few points that I think any buyer would appreciate:
1. He's always trying to accommodate my schedule. I have a full time job and was only able to see houses on weekends. He had to come out showing me houses pretty much every weekend and never had any complaint. One time, he had to watch his kid but still offer to show me the house with taking his kids with him.
2. He never pushes me to make any decision. He's always very patient and listens to what you need.
3. He is very professional and knows a great deal of the housing market. Because of his expertise dealing with different type of sellers, I was able to save a lot of money during the price negotiation.
I would highly recommend Steve to anyone who needs to buy/sell a house.
Steve was patient, thorough, knowledgable, and supportive throughout the entire process. We were always confident that he was working in our best interest, and his commitment to being in touch was impressive (we communicated at all hours of the day, and never once felt out of contact). Steve also works with an equally competant crew of support folks; this facilitated the entire process.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Zion Crossroads, VA.
The process of buying our home was comfortable, quick and even easy because of Steve's dedication to helping us find a place to call home. Steve listened to our needs and wishes for a home and made thoughtful recommendations that guided us perfectly throughout the entire process.
Steve was always available when we had questions or concerns, and promptly ensured that any issues were resolved. Steve's knowledge and guidance made us confident that we were buying the perfect house for us!
We were extremely pleased with our experience with Steve and will recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor. Thank you Steve!

Steve Taylor was an amazing agent!!! My fiance and I did some research and found that Steve possessed everything we were looking for and needing to guide us in the right direction in selling our home. The house had been on the market before with no success. Steve came over, gave us some pointers on what we needed to do to the house before market. His expert advice and knowledge helped us tremendously! When we put the sign in the yard, through Steve's contacts and good reputation here in Charlottesville, he was able to generate three showings BEFORE the house even went into MLS. We had a contract within 5 days of the sign being in our yard!
His standard of excellence does not stop at a contract. Steve has worked tirelessly and effortlessly with my fiance and I throughout this entire process.
Steve will most definitely be the person we call when our time to buy another house comes. High Recommend!!!!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Crozet, VA.
Another Virginia realtor recommended Steve to me and my husband, as we were looking for a house in the Charlottesville area. We took about 6 months to find the house we wanted, and Steve remained patient and in communication with us during the entire process. He was available on weekends and in the evenings and responded quickly to phone calls and emails. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone looking for a house in the greater Charlottesville area.
Sold a Townhouse home in 2008 for approximately $400K in Capitol Hill, Washington, DC.
Several years ago, when we were first-time buyers, Steve helped us find the perfect condo in DuPont Circle. In a highly-competitive market, he swiftly negotiated a contract the day before the scheduled open house. Years later, when were ready to move to more space, Steve brought us an interested buyer for our condo before it was even listed and helped us find a beautifully renovated rowhouse on Capitol Hill. We will use his services again and we regularly refer our friends and colleagues to him.
This is the second house I have bought with Steve in Charlottesville. He is professional , listens to what your needs are, then helps you find the right place for you. He always provided good feedback and advice. I never felt rushed to make a decision, which I really appreciated because buying a house is a big investment. Once we had decided on a house, he made sure that the process with financing, inspection and closing ran smoothly.
I liked Steve's low pressure approach to showing real estate. He never tried to show me anything outside my price range and never made me feel rushed to make any decisions. He got me to closing on time without any hassles.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2009 for approximately $250K in Charlottesville, VA.
Steve is an A+ realtor. He's been my agent for over 6 years now. As a first time home buyer, I looked to Steve for a lot of guidance during my home buying experience. He helped me and my wife throughout the process and carefully explained every phase of the process. He also offered his opinion to us, and was ready to fight for anything and everything that we wanted as his buyer.
I highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. When the time comes to upgrade, my wife and I will look to Steve to sell our current home, as well as help us find our new home. You won't find anyone better, guaranteed.
When you’re conducting a huge and complicated financial transaction like the sale or purchase of a home (or in our case, both on the same day!), you need an experienced professional on your side who can guide you through the process. Steve was with us every step of the way, explaining options, making sound recommendations, and advocating on our behalf. Steve’s professionalism, dedication, and easy-to-work-with style made what could have been a stressful experience a breeze. What really set Steve apart, though, is that he never lost sight of the fact that for us, these were not just business deals – we were finding a home for our family. We recommend him without reservation to our friends and colleagues.
