Deeply Understands the Market

I can't say enough good things about Taylor and could not recommend her more. She helped us navigate buying a house during a crazy market, bringing new strategies and POVs to help us ultimately buy our dream home. The thing that stood out most with Taylor was how much she listened to us - learning our style, hopes & dreams for a home and each time (and there were a lot of times in our search!) helped point out when those could be realized in a home.  

She understands the buyer but also deeply understands the market, which was so important as the market changed significantly across our search. 

Her patience was so key as she made us feel comfortable taking our time, passing on houses that didn't feel right, helping us figure out the right strategies for the market - knowing what a big decision this was for us. For us, these moments were just as important as the time that they nailed it and we stepped into the house we ended up buying.

Spot On!

We recently sold our home after 27 years in New Canaan, raising our children there. Once we made the decision to sell, then came the difficult decision of choosing a Realtor we wanted to represent us through this crazy market. After meeting with Taylor we were immediately struck by her professionalism and very sincere approach to understanding our thoughts, as well as all the key features of our home. She conducted accurate research on the marketplace and came back to us with a very strong assessment of where she felt our home should be positioned and why. Her assessment was spot on as we priced our home, we received multiple offers and ended up just where we wanted to be on the sale. 
Most importantly, Taylor expertly navigated the full process with multiple buyers, and brought them over the finish line! A very tricky feat given most buyers were first time homeowners with a multitude of questions and concerns. Taylor;s advice and expertise ensured the successful sale of our home and allowed us to move on to the next chapter of our lives. We highly recommend her to anyone considering the sale of their home in Connecticut!

Caring and Determined

My husband and I recently purchased a beautiful home in North Stamford, CT and we couldn’t have done it without the expertise and professionalism of Taylor Tait & Polly Sykes. We were purchasing during the very difficult pandemic market with homes selling within hours with multiple bids & bidding wars. I am certain that without the negotiation skills and experience of Taylor & Polly helping us to navigate the market, we would not have been able to successfully purchase the home we wanted.  Most importantly, they really cared about helping find the “right” place for us. They were always available and didn’t care how much time they spent or how many homes they showed us, they just wanted to make sure that we were happy in the end -- a trait that’s hard to come by. I would highly recommend their services for anyone looking to purchase a home in Connecticut.

Marketing and Negotiation

"Taylor was a delight to work with every step of the way. Her knowledge of the marketplace plus negotiating and marketing skills helped sell the house in record time. Selling a house can be stressful, but Taylor always went the extra mile to help things go smoothly."

Extremely Responsive

We were lucky enough to meet Taylor during an open house she was hosting.  A couple of hours later, she sent us a kind note and, after an initial meeting, we ended up hiring her to locate and purchase our current home in 2017.  We cannot recommend Taylor enough; she is a wonderful guide and everything you would want in a Realtor.  Over the course of several months, and as first-time homebuyers, she patiently helped us become familiar with a town we knew almost nothing about.  She is very knowledgeable about what’s on the market and is well-connected to other Realtors so she knows about listings before they are public.  She is extremely responsive and doesn’t miss details.  If she doesn’t have information readily available, she tracks it down and keeps you updated on her progress. She previews properties to save you time.  If you want it, she gives you her honest opinion.  In short, we found Taylor to be resourceful, thorough, patient, cheerful, funny and a genuinely kind and nice person.  She helps in any way she can, even after she has made the sale. I guess what I’m saying is that it’s obvious she cares – she treats your decision to purchase a home very seriously and works hard from the beginning of the process to the very end to ensure you’re happy.

Stress-Free Sale

Taylor Tait went above and beyond what any realtor would do to sell my house and alleviate stress during the process.  The house sold before the photo brochures were ready!  After the sale, she continued to help make sure all aspects of the process went smoothly.  I highly recommend her!
