Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in New Paltz, NY.

Dylan took my wife and I to view several homes in the New Paltz area. He has always made a diligent effort to arrange appointments to view all the homes we have requested. He spent ample time during each viewing identifying and discussing his observations of a particular home. He has a vast array of knowledge regarding what consitutues a good home and was able to answer practicially any question we had. He has made our first home purchase a smooth one. I would certainly use his services again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in New Paltz, NY.

Dylan was very helpful to this first time home owner. He is in touch with the community, had great advice (even outside the purchase), and helped negotiate a great solution when the discussions with the seller hit a roadblock.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Kingston, NY.

I called Dylan because I was originally interested in seeing the house he had listed in Kingston. As a retiree my goal was to relocate from the Boston area to the Hudson Valley region closer to family, and I was in the process of clarifying exactly what my "musts" were. I arranged a weekend coordinated with a NYC daughter and with Dylan's help we looked at many properties and neighborhoods. At no time did I feel any pressure to buy rather I trusted his evaluation and advice As a result I determined to proceed to next steps and ultimately my purchase of the original property.

I was very impressed with Dylan's patience and calm managing all the various players in the situation; he listened to me well and ensured that all my concerns were appropriately addressed; his market analysis was thorough and led to a what I believe was a fair offer. After the inspection was completed he oversaw completion of all required repairs and arranged for external maintenance and personally monitors my empty house and mail to this day (until Boston digs out of the snow so I can move in.)

Thanks, Val! It was a real pleasure working with you and I'm just glad you found exactly what you were hoping to find. It's a special house and has been well cared for over the years. I'm sure you will put your stamp on it and carry the torch going forward. Good luck and I'm here for you if you need anything! Spring can't come soon enough for you I bet!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Kingston, NY.

Dylan Taft listened so well to what we were looking for in an Ulster County home, it only took one afternoon of house tours for him to find us our ideal home. Seriously. We would not have even stepped inside this house had it not been for Dylan. Nor would we have gotten it for such a fair price! Thank you Taft Street Realty for helping us navigate this real estate transaction with such ease and success!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Bloomington, NY.

I presently purchased a house and am sell a house. Dylan Taft with Taft street realty represented us in the buying process and is our agent for the house we are selling. Dylan and his firm met and exceeded our expectation in a realtor. He showed knowledge of the area and listened to what my husband and I were looking for in our new home. He was able to answer our questions and concern and when he didn't have a answer he found one in a timely manner. Dylan was also very accommodating when showing our house because we do have animals and he accounted for that. We would highly recommend Dylan and Taft Street realty weather you are buying or selling a home.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Highland, NY.

Dylan was great, we met him through a house showing and knew we wanted him. He seems like he is working around the clock. We text him at 9pm, instantly get a reply, 6am, instantly get a reply. We werent the easiest of home-buyers being very cautious, seeing everything several times and not really knowing what we wanted. Dylan helped us through the whole process and even gave his suggestions and recommendations which we really appreciated. He was always there for us and still checks in on us and the house which shows he cares. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house in the area!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Highland, NY.

Dylan was awesome!! We put our house on the market and within a very short period of time it was sold. He was always available for any questions i had. I had to sell this house due to a pending divorce and facing possible foreclosure. He not only got it sold before it went into foreclosure but he fond a place for my kids and I to live without taking any fee for it. It was a pleasure to due business with Dylan!!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Kerhonkson, NY.

Dylan was completely professional and knowledgeable throughout our whole process of searching for and eventually finding us a home. He knew the area really well, was very transparent, and really listened to us, which helped us find just what we were looking for.

We had met with a previous broker a month earlier and the difference was night and day. He was extremely responsive and attentive, and helped us through every step of the process from the search, to making an offer, to the final closing. Looking back on it I feel extremely lucky that I had Dylan on our side helping us find and close on our new home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Kerhonkson, NY.

My husband and I had a fantastic experience with Taft Street Reality, who helped us find and close on our first home at the end of 2014.

Our primary residence is a rental in NYC, and we had been searching for a second home in Ulster County for a couple of months. We had been having a frustrating and stressful experience with another broker, and decided to change, and are so glad we did!

The first time we met Dylan, we were immediately impressed by his genuine desire to understand exactly what we were looking for. He asked that we visit houses we thought we didn't like on paper, just so he could really get a sense of why we liked and disliked what we did. We are so happy we took his advice and saw all the listings he prepared for us, because it was one of those houses that wound up being our perfect home.

We felt absolutely no pressure to buy (the main problem we had with our last agent), yet were reassured by the numerous comparables he sent us. Each set of comps came with a detailed explanation, his assessment, of what the comps could mean for us. He went to great lengths to ensure that our decision would be a well-informed one.

When we decided to move forward with an offer, Dylan negotiated with incredible skill and got us a fantastic price. We experienced a LOT of roadblocks in between making our initial offer and finally closing, and Dylan was professional and reassuring in the face of each one. We completely trusted him and were so grateful to have such a solid ally.

We are now happily settled in our new home, and feel we have Taft Street Reality to thank for this exciting new phase our lives!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in New Paltz, NY.

Dylan was immediately responsive to each of our requests for information whether about utilities, neighborhood, and the region generally. He has an impressive list of contacts for services from home inspection to legal to contracting. At each stage of the buying process we trusted his guidance and were never disappointed.

I appreciate those kind words! I can't thank you enough for choosing me on Zillow out of all the other options you had. And these reviews certainly help others find the right broker so thanks for sharing your experience. Let's keep in touch! -Dylan
