A Growing List of Happy Customers

Knowledge of the Victoria Housing Market

"It was a pleasure to have Don as my realtor. I can’t say enough positive things about Don, his professional demeanor, knowledge of the Victoria housing market and prompt responses to my many questions made my first home buying experience a very happy and successful one. I would recommend Don to all my friends and family. Thank you, Don, for the time and effort you put in with me to help me find my perfect apartment! "Sam

Professional, Understanding and Patient

About two years ago we decided Victoria is where we wanted to live in retirement.  We initially contacted Don through email, as he had a listing on his site in a building that we were very interested in.  Although we didn’t buy immediately, we were very pleased with his no pressure approach and he was more than happy to show us numerous listings whenever we came to town.  He very quickly became aware of needs and was great at keeping in touch over a period of about an 18 mos.  until we found our little piece of heaven in the building we wanted this spring.

He was very professional, understanding and patient with us through this process, as working from a distance has its challenges.  Don helped to make this new adventure less stressful and seamless throughout the transaction.  We really appreciated his hard work and effort in making this happen and would highly recommend his services, in fact we already have!”  Linda and John

A great 'Customer Experience"

"I really wanted to make a point of passing on a HUGE THANK YOU to you for the exceptional negotiating, attention to details, the many times you went onsite to inspect the progress, and providing advice and guidance throughout the whole process. What you deliver isn't just a sale, but a great 'Customer Experience".


Above and Beyond our Expectations

Don Taylor went above and beyond our expectations in listing and selling our home of 20 years.  While we were out of town he arranged painting, cleaning, and staging of our home to its best advantage for us and the buyer.  He guided us through the legal and practical hoops necessary to sell our home, and to find a rare single level home to replace the sold home.  Many thanks To Don. Kathy and John

We have made a new friend.

We met Don on several occasions when viewing his open houses. We were very impressed with his friendly and professional manner and his knowledge of the listings, neighbourhoods and the real estate market. Don was able to answer all of our questions and give good insight into the properties on sale.
After our positive experiences of Don's open houses and his thorough appraisal of our property, we listed our house with him. His professional and caring approach to selling our house surpassed our expectations.
 
In addition to his commitment and focus in selling our house, Don worked hard to find us a new home. He carefully reviewed our requirements and used his in-depth knowledge and experience to find properties that matched our needs.
 
We would highly recommend Don to our friends and we know that he will go the extra mile in marketing any property.
 
We have made a new friend.

Don proved to be a “Master” regarding bidding strategies and contract negotiations,

I am delighted to recommend Don Taylor as a real estate agent for any home or condo search that matches people’s unique situation. Having lived and worked in eastern Canada all these years, my goal was to purchase a property on Vancouver Island, mainly in the Greater Victoria Area. Apart from the fact that distance was a major challenge, the main issue was that I didn’t know much about Victoria and its residential neighbourhoods; therefore it was critical for me to rely on an agent who was perfectly knowledgeable about the city, trustworthy, very organized to make the process as smooth as possible, and extremely professional.

Don and I had an initial meeting and he took diligent notes regarding my criteria and specific wishes as well as my budget limitations. Don is technologically savvy and well organized and made excellent use of the relevant search engines, self-made videos, and real estate databases to quickly find me a variety of properties in some of the best-suited areas in the Greater Victoria Area. As my time on-site was always very limited and of the essence, Don did not waste my time with properties that were out of my price range or not in line with my requirements.
 
Throughout the shortlisting up to the closing process of the property, Don proved to be a “Master” regarding bidding strategies and contract negotiations, and came up with a deal that was good for me and made the seller happy as well. During the entire process, Don taught me everything I needed to
know in terms of pricing, market trends, prime locations, etc. Don knows The Greater Victoria Area like the back of his hand. There is nothing that escapes Don’s attention when it comes to property for sale in this area.
 
I found Don to be a highly attentive agent and on top of his game. Don called me multiple times a weekly during the search process to review options and inform me about the status on
each potential property in order to elaborate a specific strategy on targeted listings. Don always returns all phone calls and emails the same day. I never felt neglected. Don is also highly personable with an engaging personality. I truly appreciated the long conversations we had throughout the process.
 
Therefore I am pleased to recommend Don Taylor to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. He is hands down the best in the business in my opinion and if I ever need to buy or sell again in the Metro Victoria Area, he will be my first choice as a real estate agent.

Best Regards,
Alex Raccuia

He provided excellent advice and service from start to finish.

I bought my first home with Don Taylor. He provided excellent advice and service from start to finish. As someone from the lower mainland, Don provided important information and context about the Victoria real estate market that I did not know. Don did all the little things right - picked us up from the ferry and maximized our time on the island. Each showing was done professionally and Don did all the necessary work to close the transaction quickly.

Don was my realtor for the sale of my condo. He put in a lot of work to make the condo as attractive to potential buyers as he possibly could. I could not have been happier with Don Taylor’s services and I would be proud to recommend him to anyone looking for their next home.
