We worked with Dylan for several years as we strove to find our perfect home in the Hudson Valley. His guidance was spot-on when it came to homes, their values, the surrounding areas, and what he thought might and might not work for us. Having grown up in the area, his wealth of knowledge about the surrounding area was a huge plus. He always gave his opinion when asked, didn't push too hard one way or another, and let us guide the ship -- while stepping in when he thought we were overlooking an important detail. He was patient with us, but responsive in moments when were quite needy and nervous! He was an excellent bedrock in a nerve wracking process for first time home buyers. Highly recommended.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in High Falls, NY.

We didn't even shop around for agents. Dylan was the first to contact us without being pushy, and was the PERFECT agent for us. When we started looking we clearly weren't sure what we were looking for, and by the time we bought a home, Dylan had nailed down the type of homes to show us. This was key as we moved here (full-time) from Brooklyn and have a little kid, so we had limited time to look. Throughout the process, Dylan was clearly on our team, knowledgeable about houses, transparent about any issues he saw and more! We're just thrilled that now he is our neighbor too! He was also ace at negotiating for us. He clearly knows the local market, and was quick to school us on the "rules" out here...in other words, it's not like NYC (which is a good thing!). Thank you Dylan!

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

Dylan was exceptionally helpful in guiding me through the process of buying my first home. The process can be scary and overwhelming at times so having an extremely knowledgeable real estate professional on my team to help me through each and every step was critical! He helped to get the best price possible and keep things moving as quickly as they could. We closed in under a month from the time of the accepted offer. 3 years later he helped my wife and I sell this same home. His knowledge of the market and extreme sales skills got us a top dollar offer and in record time! We were again extremely impressed by Dylan and will continue to tell people about how impressed we are with his work. Knows the areas very well, very respectful, quick response times, great negotiation skills and a very nice person. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Thanks, Dan! You had such a beautiful home and the buyer really saw how Kingston was transforming so it was a perfect match! The buyer is so happy there and I'm sure she has a garden full of deliciousness! You guys were such pleasure to work with I'm actually bummed (but happy for you guys) that you've left the area. Best of luck and let's keep in touch! -Dylan

Dylan was so great to work with. He was very responsive to my questions and always made me feel like a priority. He worked very hard to get me a great deal and I would highly recommend Dylan to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $600K in Clintondale, NY.

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.
