Joel and Carol were a pleasure to work with – they responded immediately to my request and my sense of urgency – they were able to coordinate with another agent to find a buyer who was a perfect fit for the property – all aspects of the negotiation and closing were handled professionally and efficiently. I would highly recommend them
Zillow Review from Fred Weiss

It was such a blessing and incredibly fortuitous to have met Joel. The professionalism, knowledge, confidence, and patience Joel displayed, made a very difficult time bearable. Joel's confidence during the process gave me a level of comfort to confirm I had made the right decision in working with him and that our meeting was not an accident, but a true example of I believe Divine Intervention.

Joel & Carol have provided us excellent service and long term advice on marketing our home. They are familiar with our area and we would consider them experts in finding homes for buyer (and listing) in the Allen and McKinney area. I would strongly recommend their residential experience. They are ethical and will always take the time and patience to listen to your needs and advocate for their client.

Joel and Carol were patient and listened to exactly what we wanted in our new home. They are true full time professionals and worked tirelessly to assist my wife and I in buying our new home. Count on them to negotiate the best possible price and terms for you. If you and your family are looking for a home (or selling) in North Dallas communities, we suggest giving them a call for you real estate needs.

Carol and Joel are professional and yet very personable. They become almost instant friends, but don't hold back on telling you things you need to hear and understand. They are very responsive and our feeling was that they had our interests as their only priority. They also had a great team backing them up. One revealing story about Joel: We had an area in our back yard that was set aside as an herb garden. Because we were selling the house we did not plant anything there. On the day of our open house Joel thought the area looked too barren and felt it needed some color, so he went to the local nursery, bought several flats of flowers, got on his hands and knees and planted them, even though it was overcast and drizzling. I did not ask him to do this nor did I expect him to do it. I kidded him about this while the house remained up for sale and suggested jokingly if he wouldn't mind doing some cleaning or touch-up painting. He said if was necessary he would do it. This speaks volumes about their commitment to their clients. I highly recommend them and give them an Excellent 5 Star rating.

Joel was excellent. A family member who lives out of state was relying on me to find her a home to lease. She and her husband couldn't come out to join the home search because they just had twins but due to a job offer, they needed to find a home quickly. Joel promptly responded to my calls, listened to our needs and found my niece and her husband a home in the area they desired and in the timeframe they needed. What else can I say but great work Taylor Team!
Zillow Review from Julie Spivey

My wife and I have received advise (or information) about homes in North Dallas from Joel & Carol. They are experts in the area and have a lot to share – they will be honest and fair with you. I strongly suggest you call them when buying or selling your home!
Zillow Review from Scott

The best realtor by far! I work out of the country but commute to the Dallas area on my time off. My wife and kids stay here while I gallivant around the world as a professional pilot working constantly in Asia, I was unhappy with my current home in McKinney. After searching I found a piece of propriety that fit my every need. Unfortunately my schedule did not allow me to get home much. Joel and Carol worked tirelessly to get the deal done–not for the money but because they understood my situation. This deal would not have been done with out their help. I can't thank them enough. You will not find a better agent.
Zillow Review from Phillip

My family and I are making a move from SAN Diego, ca to McKinney, tx. Joel was very helpful in setting up a list of homes available in our price range and in areas we were looking to live in. He was quick with responding to our questions and concerns. When we narrowed down the search to a few houses, Joel did an amazing job of getting in contact with the landlords to get us in for a viewing. Joel followed through with us and the listing agents when we found the home we were looking for to help ensure we would get it. We are planning to buy a house next year and Joel and his team will be the first ones we call.

We interviewed several realtors when we decided to sell our home and ultimately selected the Taylor Group. They provided an in depth analysis of the market and a clear plan for selling our home. With just a few suggestions to prepare our house for showing, we had a buyer in less than a week. In addition, they went the extra mile to travel with us to our new area in the hill country and helped us find our new home. Through the entire process they explained every step involved.

Joel and Carol helped us find and buy our dream home in Lucas. It turned into a complicated purchase that took much longer than anticipated and they were great to work with. We might have moved on to another house if they hadn't been there to help us through the process. We highly recommend them.

Joel and Carol were great to work with, they helped me to purchase a beautiful home in a good neighborhood. The Taylor Team was knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire process. They took the time to answer all of my questions no matter how trivial and kept me up to date with information at each stage of my purchase. I will definitely look to include them with any future property sales or purchases. Thank you so very much!

Joel and Carol went way above and beyond helping me and my wife find our dream home. They provided a lot of information to us on every home we inquired about including details on how close we would be to things we would be needing for each home. Shopping, banking, pharmacies, schools, etc. Coming from out of state it was very helpful to have that expertise and excellent response to our requests. They also helped all the way to closing to ensure the process went smoothly. They are awesome realtors and people. I'd recommend them highly.
Zillow Review from Matthew Guidry

We highly recommend Joel & Carol. We relocated from California and gave them all our perimeters and found our new home within days. They were so helpful taking us around the area to get to know our new location. They processed all the paperwork while we were back in California packing. Excellent Team! Great people!
Zillow Review from Deb Guidry

Joel and Carol did an unbelievable job marketing our property with cutting edge technology that allowed us to set a home sale record in the neighborhood. They also worked extremely hard to generate foot traffic to an open house which lead to the sale of our property. I would highly recommend the Taylor team if you're looking for someone to act on your behalf as if they were family!
Zillow Review from francescastallings

The Taylor team is incredibly knowledgeable of not only the market, but they are masterfully in tuned and attuned to the needs of the clients they serve. I am incredibly appreciative of the time, attention, professionalism and PATIENCE exhibited to me by the Taylor Team during the (unfortunate) sale of my home. The Taylor team made a very difficult time bearable and I personally emerged from the process with a deep appreciation and respect for the Taylor team.
