Dylan Taft's rapid rise to prominence in Ulster County real estate sales is easy to understand. It starts with his encyclopedic knowledge of the area, the kind that nothing short of living your whole life in the Hudson Valley can provide. And it ends with his thorough and intuitive grasp of the cutting-edge technology that is transforming the buying and selling of homes. He is a new breed-old-school values in a visionary, Digital-Age businessman, the first generation of a new type of broker.


Hudson Valley Roots...

Dylan's Ulster County roots are as deep as roots can go. A product of the local public school system, from which he graduated with honors, he went on to a B.A. in economics from SUNY Oneonta and a Masters in Business Management, with honors, from SUNY New Paltz in 2003. Global travel during those early adult years only strengthened his commitment to his lifelong home as he developed a growing conviction that the majesty of the soaring Catskills with their endless Huck-Finn-style rivers and fishing creeks, sleepy small towns, and bustling, sophisticated urban centers, offered a richly varied lifestyle second to none. He knew he would come back and start a business of his own as soon as he could.


Traditional Sales Training...

And so he did, though not immediately. Academic foundation behind him, it was now time to get some on-the-ground training and experience. During his student days, he had risen to the Captainship of the wait staff at the elegant and exclusive Mohonk Mountain House and discovered, in the process, a zest for anticipating what people want and finding a way to get it for them. Now it was time to apply those skills to his chosen profession. And so for several years Dylan "learned the ropes" as a junior agent with a large, established real estate agency, taking what was best from the traditional training and the usual way of doing business that he saw around him, and methodically laying his plans for big changes in his own, "next generation" brokerage.


A New Age Vision in Real Estate!

That vision was realized 2008 when Dylan boldly launched Taft Street Realty in the face of the worst economic downturn this country had seen in nearly a century. Young and ambitious, he believed that despite the discouraging business climate-perhaps because of the discouraging business climate-there was a need for a real estate brokerage using a whole new model. It would offer buyers and sellers the traditional and time-honored benefits of local knowledge, in-depth research, experience in skillful negotiations, and frank and fair dealings. But it would then go an important step further, bringing those benefits into the Digital Age by employing and exploiting every possible avenue of web-based research and marketing. Given his young years, Dylan has never lived in a world without the Internet. So unlike most other brokers, he knows instinctively how to make today's rapid-fire information technology work hard for him. And for you.


Taft Street Today...

Today, just a short time after Dylan launched it from the ground up; Taft Street Realty is already ranked among Ulster County's top 20 real estate firms. His clients have come to know and respect a professional who holds nothing back when it comes to the giving of his knowledge, his skills, and his time, and who does it all with scrupulous fairness and honesty, as well as firmness and frankness whenever the occasion calls for it.

      Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2014 in Ulster Park, NY.
      After rather broad research we selected Dylan Taft to list our house in Ulster Park. Dylan came prepared with thorough market analysis and suggestions for preparing the house for listing. He spent a generous amount of time with us before we even listed the house, and I feel confident he offers such professional courtesy and expertise to everyone he works with, be they buyers or sellers. Dylan understands today's market and the steps needed to successfully present and sell to the educated buyer looking for property in Ulster County's Hudson River Valley. We have every confidence in Dylan and expect -- during the offering, contract, and closing phases of the transaction -- to be even more impressed with Dylan.  MoreLess

      Bought a home in 2014.
      We were first time home buyers looking for a house between Kingston and New Paltz. We had certain needs and a limited price point. We found a house that ,I feel ,Dylan could have sold us but u opted to show us a house he knew we would love at a Much lower price. The man knows real estate and is working for you, the buyer, not himself. If your looking for a realtor for the Ulster county area please give him a call. You won't be disappointed.  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Rosendale, NY.
      Thanks to Dylan Taft at Taft Street Realty, my wife and I are enjoying a newly purchased (June 2014) home in Rosendale. Dylan's efforts were first-rate from start to finish. His up-to-the-minute knowledge of the local market was evident at our first meeting this spring. He was quick to understand the combination of features of house and location that we were seeking. In short order, he called to alert us to an affordable property that met our criteria, and we took his advice to come see it quickly. We made a offer promptly and relied on his counsel to conclude the negotiation successfully within days. At our request, he provided referrals to an inspector and attorney, saw us through a convivial closing, and advised us as newcomers to Ulster County on getting household arrangements and accounts in order. We recommend him enthusiastically.  MoreLess
