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 can’t recommend Dylan Taft highly enough. At our first meeting Dylan took time to really learn what our situation was, where we were in our lives, and get an idea where we were headed. All his information was clear and complete, well researched and in context. He gave us very close estimates of how long each stage of the process was likely to take and what our choices were for all scenarios. All of Dylan’s “best guesses” around how the marketing, negotiation and closing process would go proved accurate. He showed a deep knowledge of this part of the Hudson Valley in his presentation of the house and how he described it to buyers. Dylan was very much in touch with us throughout, and always completely accessible. He was able to get us where we wanted to move our lives on time and on budget.

From start to finish, working with Dylan Taft was the most positive experience with an agent I’ve had, on either side of the table. Most importantly, Dylan got the job done. He presented the house attractively and helped us price it exactly right for the current market. He saw to getting a steady traffic of viewers through the house week after week, and was always in touch with updates. Throughout the negotiating process Dylan was a very strong advocate but always above board and honest. He’s exactly who you want to represent you - true to your wishes but with added gusto. Dylan Taft earned my highest recommendation.
Dylan was a knowledgeable and efficient real estate agent. He was patient with regard to showing us homes and encouraging with regards to selling our home. He was honest with us, on time for appointments, and otherwise professional to work with. I would recommend him to a friend or family member.
Dylan Taft is a phenomenal real estate Broker!! Let me repeat: PHE-NO-MENAL!!! He is the absolute BEST! I did not necessarily believe in working with a broker at first. Not because I do not appreciate their work, but because I am extremely picky and did not want to waste my time seeing houses and neighborhoods I didn't like. We were looking for the perfect house - of course - that was to become our home, as well as our offices and studios. Not an easy task! Dylan lined up all of our appointments and made our trips worth while without us ever feeling overwhelmed. Before we knew what we really wanted, Dylan knew! He just gets all the little details that are important to you, remembers them and then finds the perfect match. I never felt pushed. We always spent the time we needed at our prospect houses and his advice is the best and always very honest. Dylan then subtly suggested seeing a house that he felt we might like, that was not on our list. Guess what? It was our dream house and after looking at all the other ones, we made an offer and now I am writing this review from our very new dream house!
I cannot rave enough about Dylan. He is always available and I mean ALWAYS! I don't know if he has a clone or how he does it. On top of it, he is extremely knowledgable about Ulster County. He is a local area expert and, knows the value of these homes and could very well be a contractor. He tells you exactly what needs to be fixed and gives you rough estimates of the costs, so you know right on the spot what you're dealing with. Dylan will tell you the truth about a house, which, very often, does not work to his advantage.
At times we could not make it out to the house to see if some requested improvements were done, while we were in contract. Well, Dylan did. He always made it a point to check. Tirelessly!
We found our house and closed in a little over 3 months. Last but not least: he negotiated a substantial amount off the sales price and made sure all of what we requested was repaired. I don't know how he got that done, but that's Dylan for you!
Dylan Taft is the best Woodstock real estate Broker you can find.
And guess who I am calling now to get recommendations that have to do with the house? Dylan, of course! And he answers back just as fast as always. Or his clone. Either one of them.

Dylan was so incredibly easy to work with - he was my agent as a buyer and he was super patient and incredibly knowledgeable about the area. (I was looking to purchase a home in upstate NY). He was pragmatic and helped with the negotiations and continues to provide great advice on home ownership. He's a really nice guy who is always approachable and available and spends the time to make sure the client is happy. I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home in the upstate NY area.
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.

Thanks, Judy! We appreciate your kind words and look forward to working with you. Thanks for trusting us with the sale of your home!
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.

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.
We relied on Zillow and Yelp reviews in picking an agent to help us buy a place and Dylan was a great pick. He was always available to answer any of our questions, quick to respond with listing availability and make a plan that worked around our schedule.
He helped us all through the process - finding houses that were interesting to us based on questions he'd asked and by asking for feedback as we went through the process, then in helping identify local experts to help with the inspection, financing and an attorney. In all cases he gave us a number of recommendations.
On top of this is he is such a nice guy. 5-stars - buy or sell your house with Dylan, am sure it will be like ours - a great experience.
