Ratings & Reviews

Our home was a well built, uniquely designed structure in a beautiful setting with spectacular views, but in the wrong zip code. We listed with two high profile companies before trying flat fee MLS. We couldn't help but notice that Dylan Taft showed our home to more prospective buyers than all other realtors combined. We decided that he earned the right to list. Upon signing with Taft Realty, Dylan hired a professional photographer to take the best pictures ever taken of the property. He also reworded the listing to indicate that this was a special property that was, "off the radar." Within three weeks we received not one, but two competing offers on our home. Dylan handled all aspects of closing, resolving several potentially deal-breaking challenges to provide us with a problem free closing. On top of all that, he kept us completely informed on a very regular basis, and thanked us for our confidence in him with a thoughtful post-closing note and gift. Professional, hard working, and classy! I couldn't imagine a better experience. We are listing another hard to sell property with him this week.

Wow Doug, thanks! What an amazing review and vote of confidence. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and Sandy and I'm happy that you are happy. It's always nice when a client can validate the hard work that goes into marketing and selling homes. Thanks again and I look forward to helping you with that parcel of land! -Dylan

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Highland, NY.

As first time home-buyers, Dylan never hesitated to answer the myriad of questions my husband and I had about everything from the area, the homes and the buying process. He was always quick to respond even on weekends and accommodated late and last minute viewing times due to our busy schedules. He was more than patient with our indecisiveness between multiple properties and guided us in the direction we feel was best suited for us. In the end, he negotiated the perfect price on the house we loved. Dylan went above and beyond our expectations and we couldn't be happier with the outcome.

Bought a home in 2015 in Alligerville, High Falls, NY 12440.

Dylan was responsive from day 1 even though I was not local to his area. In fact I found him after other realtors did not return my phone calls. There were very few properties that met my needs but Dylan never stopped trying.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in New Paltz, NY.

What a great experience! My wife and I worked with Dylan to find and purchase a house in New Paltz, NY. One of the things we appreciated most about working with Dylan was his consultative approach. We never felt pressured at any point. In fact, Dylan was a calming force throughout the entire process. We truly felt like he understood who we are and what our preferences and priorities were in terms of properties. We are grateful to the friends who recommended Dylan to us and feel we owe it to other prospective home buyers to do the same.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in New Paltz, NY.

We were introduced to Dylan Taft by another happy client of his so we had an idea of what to expect. Well Dylan met and exceeded our expectations. Not only was he professional and prompt for every appointment, he never pressured us. We felt very comfortable working with him from day one. He listened to our needs, was knowledgeable of the area and found us the perfect income property in New Paltz, NY - which is not easy to come by! From there on out he remained attentive and focused on getting us the best deal at the best price. We highly recommend Dylan and intend on maintaining our relationship with him for our future property needs.

Wow thanks, Christina! I appreciate you letting others know about your experience. I thought we had a lot of fun house hunting and in the end we scored something special! I can't wait to see some pics after you renovate, and of course if you need anything post closing please don't hesitate to reach out! -Dylan

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!
