Although most private home sale transactions are relatively straight forward, my home sale was not. Changes to City and Provincial regulatory environments raised unexpected issues. Thankfully I had retained Ryan Taylor to direct this transaction; his market knowledge and experience were instrumental in bringing this sale to a timely and fortunate resolution. I am happy to recommend Ryan; he is diligent, professional and completely dedicated to his customer.

"This recommendation had been inspired by Ryan Taylor's service relating to the sale of our Dunbar home. We met Ryan when the idea of downsizing was, for us, a distant possibility. In spite of the fact that Ryan knew we would not be moving soon, he signed on as our agent. He provided prompt professional service by sending us e-copies of house listings that were similar to the house we were selling and also to the ones that we wereinterested in buying. When we saw a home we were interested in, Ryan arranged a viewing at which he was present. Once we made the decision to sell, Ryan and his contractors worked up a very professional web presentation of our home. He also held one open house. The house sold in five days. Ryan also acted as our representative for the purchase of our new townhouse. I would venture to say that his negotiating skills enlarged the spread between the selling price and buying price of our old/new homes. Ryan also used his contacts to help with some of the other chores involved in selling, buying and moving such as oil tank removal and obtaining moving containers. We have no hesitation in recommending Ryan and would be happy to discuss this personally. You can get our phone number from Ryan."

Ryan recently helped us sell our house in Dunbar. He was fabulous to deal with always available to answer questions, kind, courteous, and resourceful. He used all available methods to ensure that we got the best possible price for our home. Even after the house sold, Ryan was available to help out on several occasions. His professionalism, resourcefulness and willingness to help were remarkable, and we recommend him to anyone who is looking for a realtor. Should the need arise, we will definitely call him again!

I have used Ryan as my realtor twice; first, to buy my apartment in the Kitsilano area of Vancouver and again to sell it several years later. I was extremely pleased with Ryan's service. He did scrupulous research for me, both buying and selling. Ryan was constantly pleasant, patient, and reassuring during both real estate transactions. Ryan gave me excellent advice and most importantly he got the results I was hoping for! Without hesitation, I would recommend Ryan to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell property in the Vancouver area.

Thanks very much for handling the sale of our home on Ptarmigan Place and the purchase of the new townhouse on St. Andrews. Obviously after having lived there for 22 years it was very big part of our lives. We were very pleased with the way you took care of everything Ryan starting with the initial listing and then right down to the completed sale. Even though this was a very stressful time for us you managed to keep our nerves under control. We were especially pleased that we were able to get in touch with you at all times and to talk to you personally. You kept your promises and you kept us informed. As we didn't have a great deal of time to find another place to live, we appreciated your effort to get listing information to us quickly in order to purchase the new townhouse. That certainly lessened the stress for us. We don't expect to be looking for another home for a few years but you can count on the listing when that time comes. Thanks again for your assistance Ryan and don't hesitate to have anyone call us as we would be pleased to recommend you.

I had been living in the West End, renting a great Beach Avenue apartment for a couple of years, but had been thinking frequently about getting into the market and buying for the first time. I knew several realtors, but they were all in my home town of Maple Ridge and I didn't feel confident that any of them knew the market in Vancouver, and more specifically - the quality of the buildings and potential for problems. Ironically around the same time, I received an email from a co-worker inviting me to a "Lunch and Learn" session on Real Estate for first time buyers, hosted by Ryan Taylor. She gave me a great personal referral and I attended with lots of questions. I found that Ryan was exceptionally knowledgeable and professional. From there, I arranged for my mortgage pre-approval was able to to begin the exciting part - looking for my first home! Ryan took the time to get to know me, what my requirements (and "nice-to-have's") were, as well as the neighbourhoods I wanted to consider. We looked at several apartments and different areas, and quickly discovered that Gastown was the neighbourhood that I was most drawn to. Ryan found a truly unique home for me, well within my price range, and that had all of the criteria that I required. Fantastic! Simply put, Ryan made the entire process easy for me and I felt that he represented me in negotiations, and all other areas, extraordinarily well. My recommendation of Ryan Taylor as a realtor comes very highly and I would not hesitate to call him for my future real estate questions and representation. Thanks Ryan, it was a pleasure! Sincere regards,

I had been considering buying a condo for some time, and when I finally decided to buy, Ryan came highly recommended from a colleague and I was not dissappointed. He was very responsive to my wish list and did an excellent job of managing my expectations in the real estate market. He set me up on his automatic e-mail list and called regularly to follow up. And, if I saw a listing or a building on my own that I was curious about, I asked Ryan to look into it for me. His extensive knowledge of the West End and Downtown helped me avoid condos with potential issues. This is very valuable, especially in Vancouver. The best thing about my experience was that I was not pressured in any way to either visit a condo I didn't like or make an offer on a place that wasn't just right. Ryan always respected my decision. And when I decided to make an offer, Ryan made the whole process seem so painless. He provided me with a workbook that detailed all the information I needed to purchase a condo, and he was accessible when I had questions. As a first-time home buyer, I could not have asked for a better Real Estate agent than Ryan. I love my new home!

I am a first time buyer and purchased my condo with Ryan Taylor as my Real Estate Agent. Immediately, his professionalism and high regard for his clients was evident. He tailored my search to exactly what I was looking for. His knowledge of the Real Estate market made me feel at ease when purchasing for the first time. He takes the time to find out the type of Real Estate you are looking for and makes sure he finds only the best properties within your price range. Ryan puts every effort to set up appointments and schedules the viewing of properties at the convenience of his clients. His professional appearance and rapport with his colleagues gives you a sense of working with a highly respected individual. He works hard to get to know what you want and continues to assist you in your search until you find the property you are looking for. I would highly recommend Ryan Taylor to anyone who is looking to purchase a home, you will be very pleased with him as your agent.

Buying and selling a home can be stressful. For us, It could have been extra stressful since we were expecting our second child in one month, and living in a two-bedroom condo. Lucky for us, Ryan's expertise and calmness helped keep us focused and excited about our new adventure. He was patient with our continuous stream of questions, reliable and hard-working. We did find a wonderful new home thanks to Ryan. We strongly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy.
