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

Sold a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Kingston, NY.

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.

Sold a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Kingston, NY.

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.

Sold a home in 2014.

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.

Bought a home in 2014.

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.

I wish I could clone myself! My wife might not like that, though ;) Thanks for giving me the chance to work with you! -Dylan

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Eddyville, NY.

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.

thanks, Peter! You and Paul were also super easy to work with. We had fun seeing houses and I think we ended up with a real gem! If you need anything post closing please don't hesitate to reach out! Best, Dylan

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K 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. We had bought a house across the country, so we were not in upstate NY much of the time the house was on the market. Dylan went above and beyond the normal scope of a realtor's duties, bringing in professionals to maintain the landscaping and photograph the property. We are convinced Dylan's attention to every detail (promptly, graciously, and often without our even asking) was instrumental in the timely sale of the house. Thanks, Dylan. You're the best!!!

Bought a home in 2014.

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.
