Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Kingston, NY.
From the moment we contacted Dylan about purchasing a home,( to the moment we signed on the dotted line), Dylan treated us like we were his only clients. He answered all of our questions immediately via telephone or text.(day-night-late evenings-early mornings-weekdays-weekends) He was available and willing to show us numerous houses until we found our "dreamhome" . We could not have asked for a more professional, caring real estate agent. We recommend Taft Street Realty to EVERYONE that mentions they are looking for a home!:) He is officially on our "Christmas Card list" I think that's speaks volumes about how we feel about him:)

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Highland, NY.
Dylan Taft is the most honest and energetic real estate I have come across. He helped me to find a perfect house for my family. He showed me any house I asked about and was willing to aide in my search even on SuperBowl Sunday. I highly recommend his services. He was extremely helpful in the negotiations for the home and gave excellent advice so that we arrived at the right price for the house.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Rosendale, NY.
Dylan was an absolute pleasure to work with, and was extremely effective in helping us find the perfect home in Rosendale. We had a long wish list, and Dylan helped us to make it happen. He responded almost immediately to our emails-- even in the wee hours, and went above and beyond to research answers to those questions to which he did not know the answer. He kept our son entertained while we took our time walking in and around the homes he showed us. He was always extremely honest, and very helpful in offering his well informed understanding of the market. He really listened to us, asking us questions at every home he showed us to refine his understanding of what we wanted, and he never tried to push us to see things that were not plausible contenders. When we fell in love with a home (after only 3 days with Dylan), he was a gentle, but skilled negotiator. All around, the search and purchase process were easy and not stressful, thanks in large part to Dylan’s expertise, his laid back but extremely responsive style, and his intimate understanding of the area and the market. I enthusiastically recommend Dylan-- a great guy and a fantastic realtor!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in New Paltz, NY.
I know how stressful finding a new place to live can be. i had been thinking of getting a house for a few months, but the task seems so daunting that i couldnt even thing of where to begin. i had considered linking up with a few agents from the internet, until I saw a old high school friend on the list of realtors --and i couldnt have been more pleased.

In my experience most agents have one or two places to show you that meet your budget, necessities, and location...but this wasnt the case with dylan. first, we gave him our criteria and scheduled a meeting with him to show us a few places. i had planned on meeting for an hour or so to see a place or two, but dylan had something different in mind--he had planned to spend the entire morning and early afternoon with us until we found the perfect house. As a first time home buyer I was wary and inexperienced about most of the process, but dylan was very honest and knowledgeable. Communication was easy with him through emails, text messages, and phone calls.

I couldnt have been more pleased with the selection of house that dylan showed us. we met early in the morning, and he was punctual meeting us at the first location. from there, he was able to show us at least a dozen more places that were within our location and our budeget! in general, we were able to see one place after the other with very little downtime between the two places. i expected the house search to continue for months, but within a day, we found the house that we were dreaming of!

When I finally found the perfect home he worked very fast to make sure I would land it at the price I wanted. he handled negotiating the entire deal very well and helped me coordinate all the other aspects of appraisals, inspections, and other services.

We've been living in our new home for a couple weeks now and we couldn't be happier with our decision on the home and of going with dylan. We felt like we had an all-star cast working for us and that has made this potentially nerve-wracking home-buying experience a very pleasant and smooth one for us.

It's with great enthusiasm that we recommend Dylan Taft! As first-time buyers with limited knowledge of the area, we felt fortunate to connect with him. Dylan is a wealth of information in all aspects of Ulster County. He spent a lot of time understanding not only what we were looking for in a house, but also how it would fit into our lifestyle. As we began to shape what we needed, Dylan was always one step ahead of us, surfacing aspects of the different houses we saw, that we didn't even think about. He was always calm and diplomatic and didn't scare away from any of my temper tantrums. :-) If ANYONE were looking to do anything from buying or selling to even remodeling or project work, Dylan would be the first person I would reach out to since he has not only deep ties to the area, but genuinely cares about it as well. He always responded quickly and treated us like we were VIPs. Dylan is an honorable, hard-working person who earned a tremendous amount of respect from us. THANK YOU Dylan for helping to make this happen for us. We can't even put a price tag on the value (and genuine kindness) you provided us.

Bought a home in 2012.
We worked with Dylan throughout the summer and fall on purchasing a two family home for grandparents and married son with kids. It was a difficult job to find a home that we could both afford and that all of us approved of. Dylan stayed with us and kept finding places that could fit our needs. He was great a negotiating and helped us to acquire a placed we love in the right are. Mike B

Finding that special property in the right location wasn't easy but we did it! With the right plan of attack and the right representation the buying process is that much easier and less stressful. Thanks again for the review and if there is anything else I can help with just let me know! Best, Dylan Taft - Ulster County NY local area advisor/consultant.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in New Paltz, NY.
I highly recommend Dylan to anyone looking for a home. He responded within minutes to my inquiry on Zillow. The next fastest realtor reponded a day later. By then, Dylan had me lined up to look at 5 homes in the New Paltz area. Because of my tight work schedule, Dylan made sure to get me appointments at times that were convenient for me. Being a first time buyer in New Paltz I was nervous about finding the right agent to help me. Dylan made me feel comfortable right at the first meeting. His extensive local knowledge of homes in the New Paltz market and negotiating skills led me to quickly find and buy a beautiful house.

We were very pleased with Dylan as our realtor for our home purchase, especially through a loan process that was very difficult. Dylan went the extra mile to ensure that our needs were fully met. We would absolutely recommend him to potential homebuyers.

The Chontos' were great to work with. Although a very long process with the lender, they hung in there and got a great deal on their home. A great interest rate too! Best of luck to you both and your new addition too!!

Bought a home in 2012.
I have always dreamed of owning my own home. Mr. Taft not only helped me to reach that dream, but help me to find the perfect home.

From start to finish Dylan made me feel like he wanted me to have a place as much as I did. He made me feel like I was searching with someone who cared and not just another client. With Dylan's help I was able to find and buy more than just a house. I walked away with my dream home.

Thank you Dylan.
