"Blake is excellent! Truly enjoyed working with him on the purchase of our new home in Austin while we were in Dallas. He and his team made sure to stay on top of all aspects of the transaction. While we haven’t lived in Austin for a few years now, it was important to know we had someone we could trust to handle the details, access a network of trusted professionals, and ultimately make sure we had a quality purchase on a great home. I can’t say thank you enough...truly outstanding!"

"Taylor Real Estate has an amazing Realtor, Michelle Ward. She helped my family and I relocate from out of state with so much ease and peace of mind.  During a very long escrow, she was always there to explain and give us the best options. Michelle is someone who puts her whole heart into everything and everyone; She is honest and super knowledgeable. She's ALWAYS on your side and still the biggest team player! If you need a Realtor you can trust and can get the job done well, look no further than Michelle Ward!"

Suzie Finch

"We are really mad at Blake Taylor real estate. We had planned for a month or more on the market and they sold our home in only 11 days! We got almost exactly the price we were asking. Combine that with a short time to closing and we were found ourselves scrambling to catch up. Maybe it was the great staging, the fantastic photos or the attention to detail of their marketing campaign. Be careful using Taylor Real Estate unless you are ready for the home to sell fast and for the amount you want."

"Blake and the team at Taylor Real Estate are the best in Austin. Data driven and always attending to detail they've helped me get the most out of two sale transactions this year. They're innovative, they work hard and they care about their clients. My parents have also bought and sold a house with them. I recommend Taylor Real Estate without reservation."

"Blake is a highly competent well informed realtor in Austin. He knows the market, listens well and works hard. High Integrity would be an understatement. What I was most impressed with was Blake's ongoing advise and referral to great resources AFTER the purchase of my home. He's a rare find and I'll use him again."

"My husband Rob and I moved to the Lakeway/Bee Cave area in February. Our son-in-law works at a Title Company in Austin and had worked with Blake many times. When we were ready for a realtor, Blake was the person that he recommended to us. It was obvious that we were old enough to be Blake's parents and at first we wondered if we would be on the same page for our home search. After the first of MANY outings to look at homes we quickly realized that Blake had the great gift of being able to listen to what we were looking for and present numerous (about 75) homes to look at. We were so impressed by his wealth of knowledge for the entire Austin and surrounding areas that we felt very confident when we made our home choice; not only by falling in love with our home and neighborhood but knowing that we were making a great investment for the future. Blake and his team make the whole home buying process as simple as possible. Blake is not the type of realtor that is just looking to "make a sale" or "close a deal". He is genuinely interested in fostering a relationship with his clients and doesn't disappear afterwards. We would highly recommend Blake and Taylor Real Estate to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home in the Austin area. You will have a friend for life." - Becky Brockman

"Blake and the Taylor Real Estate team were incredible! Blake's knowledge of the area, the market and attention to detail on each specific home were impressive. The packages and briefings put together by the team were more detailed and professional than I have ever seen. Blake worked aggressively to sell our home using the latest marketing techniques. The team was responsive, helpful and empathetic working our family with small children. They worked hard, were efficient and walked us through every step and we could not be more pleased. If it weren't for their persistence on making sure the timing worked and the details I am certain we wouldn't be moving into our dream home. After purchasing several homes, I can say that Taylor Real Estate is the best group I have ever worked with! Thank you so much Blake, Shelli and Caitlyn for getting us in our dream home!" - Erin Warner

"Blake and the team at Taylor Real Estate expertly researched home prices in the areas we were looking. Their deep knowledge of local issues, such as HOA fees, additional MUD taxes, and more were instrumental in helping us to compare homes. His negotiation was extremely professional and in our case relied on strong data to support our Offer. We got the home of our dreams, and a great value. I really want to thank Blake, Shelli and Cait for taking care of us like we were their own family. I"m a commercial real estate broker, which is why i wanted an EXPERT to represent my family and I in this hot market. I highly recommend Taylor Real Estate!" -Jim Young

"Over the years I’ve met quite a few realtors, yet Michelle stands out as this incredible combination of knowledge and reliability topped by genuine personal warmth. Michelle Ward, tip of the hat to you and your professionalism"

"Taylor Real Estate does so much more than any other agency I've worked with. They are strategic, realistic and thoughtful. One example: Their digital marketing plan to sell our house was fantastic! Buying, selling, renting, investing? Do yourself a favor, use Taylor Real Estate."

Laura-Pavlas

"The difference between a transaction and a service is genuine care. Blake and his team truly care for their clients in a personal way. They want the best for them, which may not come quickly or easily. In this market, having an experienced and professional team in your corner can not be underestimated. From personal financing issues to real estate jargon, TRE walks clients through each step carefully and specifically. We enjoy Blake, his family, and his team. We wouldn't work with anyone else because we know we're in good hands. Cheers to TRE!"

Sean Henry

"My aunt decided to sell her home of 40 years and selected Taylor Real Estate after passing on other realtors. Blake and Caitlyn were definitely the right choice. They made what could have been a stressful experience an exciting time. They had an offer for my aunt after just one week on the market and were there to give support and advice throughout. It was evident they placed the relationship above the transaction. I am grateful to them both."

Pamela Shoaf


"I think just simply knowing the market only makes you a good realtor. To be an excellent realtor you need to have exceptional knowledge of the market and a team that is committed to detail and follow through. The Taylor team really took care of my wife and I on a recent purchase. Blake is at the top of his field in Austin because he pays attention to detail, follows through and stays involved well past closing and simply just works hard. He is not just exceptional he is as good as they get. Highly recommend the Taylor team."

Ian Davis

"Taylor Real Estate is the best it gets! I might be a little biased since I am family, however I can honestly say that Blake and his team are the most professional, hardworking, and genuine team of people you will ever work with! Their work is impeccable, and their knowledge and level of expertise is unmatchable. You will be treated very professionally, and they will make an extra effort to make sure you are completely satisfied with every part of the real estate process. TRE recently helped my husband and I buy a house, and I can honestly say I have never experienced a more professional and personalized experience! Most importantly he got the job done, and we are now proud homeowners! Whether you are buying or selling, Taylor Real Estate is the best choice!"

Brittany S.

"Blake Taylor came highly recommended to us by our daughter and son-in-law, who’d recently listed an investment property with TRE. Their experience was very successful; the property sold in record time at above asking price. So we were confident the Team TRE energy, savvy marketing skills and proven experience was exactly what we wanted to sell our home. Blake met with us and made excellent remodel recommendations. He was right on all counts! Our house sold in less than two weeks IN NOVEMBER!! Blake’s TEAM was OUTSTANDING! Johnathan Sybert was excellent at keeping track of things and communicating with us, listening to our concerns, and reassuring us~an invaluable quality!! TAYLOR REAL ESTATE - simply put, a WINNING Partnership! THANK YOU Sincerely!"

"Blake was terrific to work with. He is very knowledgeable about the downtown market and offered great advice and strategy in pricing and marketing my condo. He led the process with efficiency and expertise and always kept me in the loop, plus he was friendly, enthusiastic and motivated throughout. I sold my condo while living out of state and Blake quickly earned my trust and respect where I felt comfortable not being there and letting him handle the process, make strategic decisions and negotiate the best deal for me. He delivered 100%! I was very impressed with Blake and highly recommend him."

"Consider this a very favorable recommendation for using Blake Taylor and his team to sell your home in the Lakeway area. Karen and I decided to sell our home in The Hills in June of 2018. We both felt very comfortable with Blake's approach to selling the home.


Blake was aggressive price-wise on the home. To the point where we were concerned it was overpriced. But he was able to show how he could get the comparable homes that would convince an appraiser to approve the price we were asking for. He also impressed us with his plan for marketing the home in many unique and progressive ways. His approach to staging the home for pictures and showings was very specific and strict. When we thought we had minimized everything, he went further. The concept worked. The pictures and the staging of the house were a key component of our success.


The marketing of the home brought immediate interest and we had visitors within hours of posting the listing. The follow up from Blake and his team was exceptional and we felt very comfortable with the progress and status reports. Within 9 days we had a very solid prospect and Blake worked with them to reach agreement. By day 11 we had a deal that both sides were happy with. The appraisal was approved for the price in the contract and the buyer set the closing at the end of August. Every potential rough area was managed quickly and professionally by Blake and his team. In the end it was a very smooth process.


Karen and I would highly recommend working with Blake and his team for your next home sale. Just be prepared for it to move fast."


Paul & Karen Depperschmid

"Taylor real estate is top notch. I have leveraged Blake and Lindsay through 2 different property buy/sell activities. Super nice and very interested and attentive to our preferences and specific situation. I continue to stay in touch with them with small questions and always get prompt responses. I can say with certainty that I will again contact Taylor real estate for my next home purchase or sell in the Austin area. They provide a more personalized experience compared to other agents who seem to be focused on quantity and moving quickly. Thanks Blake & team."

Rob Shepler

"Simply put, Blake is the hardest working realtor with the hardest working team I've ever had the privilege of working with. TRE worked tirelessly advertising and coaching us to maximize the amount we could receive for our house. Most importantly, Blake and his team all share the same supreme level of integrity. Great people working hard to your benefit, we could not be happier to have done business with Taylor Real Estate. A sincere thank you, Blake and team."
