Testimonials

  • "There is a lot you can say about working with Mark, Dylan and team. I believe the most impactful and value add in working with the team is their attentiveness to the complete transaction. At no point did they hand off responsibility or did not remain solutions oriented. They managed the transaction end to end to ensure that I was well informed and well taken care of. Even when I had issues or was unclear with other constituents in the transaction they jumped in to guide or help."

  • "The Mason Taylor team helped me to buy my first home and I couldn't be more grateful to have worked with them on the purchase. Every small detail was looked after and in every regard they went above and beyond. I would compare it to driving a car on cruise control; they powered the deal and I was needed only for what was critical. Also, they made a few key recommendations that saved me thousands in repairs down the line. Finally, from the principals to the support staff, everyone is extremely pleasant and engaged which makes all the difference in the world when navigating a home purchase. I'll be using Mason Taylor for future real estate transactions to be sure."

  • "Mark Taylor was a pleasure to work with in finding my new home. He never tried to sell me on any property I saw and truly just wanted me to be happy with my purchase. He was fantastic at negotiating! He got my bid accepted, then ended up saving my thousands of dollars in closing costs from my bank and got several thousand from the seller!! He made buying a house not stressful. He happily took all of my calls and explained anything I wasn't clear on in perfect detail. I would refer my own mother to this guy because he is a real class act and truly made me feel like my needs come first and got me into my dream home! Thank you Mark Taylor!!"

  • "Mark helped my wife and I purchase our first home. We had no idea what we were doing and are so thankful that we found Mark to be our realtor. He helped find us a great home and did an excellent job on negotiating, which led to a great price. He did not only stop after our deal was done, he pointed us to the right people for the construction we wanted to do before moving in. I highly recommend Mark Taylor to help you purchase or sell your house."

  • "We hired Mark Taylor to sell an aborted rehab property in Mission Viejo that we had taken back in lieu of foreclosure. Mark and his team immediately began to assist us in this effort, even arranging for the locks to be replaced and to have the property cleaned up. Marketing commenced immediately thereafter and Mark and his team fielded literally hundreds of interested buyers and selected one that offered $100,000 more than we expected. I was skeptical that it was a real offer, but the buyer closed in 10-days, all cash. We could not have achieved a better outcome and the marketing efforts Mark and his team provided created a sense of competition which resulted in this great outcome."

  • "My wife and I had a very positive experience working with the Mason|Taylor team. Mark was very attentive as we described our 'wish list' and he quickly found us several properties to visit. We found the perfect house in a very short amount of time; in fact, it was the first house Mark showed us! The size, specifications, features, location, and price all met or exceeded our criteria, and we could not be happier with our home. They went above and beyond simply finding us our house as well. They helped us find a mortgage broker. They were available for advice during contract review and walkthroughs. They even got us a one-year house anniversary gift! The team is very professional and knows the market well. I'd refer friends to Mason|Taylor without hesitation."

  • "Our experience working with Mason|Taylor Team on the sale of our home was a dream come true. We originally listed with another agent, but after several months and no real offers we decided to change. Immediately upon signing the Mason|Taylor Team we felt and saw the difference. From staging our home, taking beautiful pictures, sending out marketing materials, and coordinating showings, everything was taken care of quickly and professionally. Their team dynamic ensured that questions were answered promptly, documents were reviewed thoroughly, and a team member was always there to show our home. The Team truly made our home a priority and within the first week of listing with them we had multiple offers at and above asking. Mason|Taylor Team exceeded our expectations and we couldn't have been happier with the results. We would definitely recommend Mason|Taylor Team to our friends and family. We can't thank them enough for all their hard work!"

  • "Dylan, Mark, and the team are extremely customer-focused and stay close to home owners through the entire process. More importantly, they continue to be helpful post-close which is a behavior not often found in agents. We will use them again for selling/buying our next home."

  • "Dylan and Mark provided 5 Star service in the sale of our home. They were readily available and went beyond the scope of normal service. Years later they still are willing to help with any property related issues long after their commission checks have been spent. The professionalism demonstrated is laudable.

  • "Our thanks to Dylan and Mark for making the sale of our home as painless as possible. What one real estate agent generally brings to the table, with this complimentary duo, we truly got twice the accessibility, twice the service and two unique perspectives. Dylan and Mark knew our niche market and it ultimately showed in a quick sale for top dollar. Working around our busy schedule with two small children was not easy, but they remained flexible and we can not thank them enough for their professional work."

  • “The Mason|Tayor Team did a fabulous job in providing a smooth transaction end to end. From the pre-listing marketing and pricing strategy, to negotiating multiple offers, leading to a seamless quick close, we couldn't be more happy. Because of the Mason|Taylor Team we received 8 over asking offers within 5 days of listing, with only holding one weekend of open houses. We knew we were in good hands, this was the was the most stress-free transaction we have ever been part of.”

  • Mark and Dylan, thank you so much for your commitment to selling our home. With this being the second transaction you have completed for us, we cannot thank you enough for how easy you make the process. The fact that you were able to get multiple offers over ask, and sell our home within 10 days of hitting the market is a testament to your experience. We also loved the fact that you do not use a lock box, and are present for every showing. We know that this takes more time and effort on your part, but it truly is a nice luxury that you provide to your clients. Your overall knowledge of the Costa Mesa / Newport Beach market is pretty hard to beat. We would recommend you as our preferred agent to all our friends and family.

  • “Mark and Dylan were excellent to work with. Our property was unique and had some challenges when it came to finding a buyer. We listed with two other agents prior to Compass who were not able to get it sold. Mark and Dylan came in with a new approach, made some minor recommendations on how to make the property show better. With their advice and skill, the property sold within 10 days and the escrow process was as smooth as could be. Mark and Dylan are professional, communicate well and I would recommend them to anyone looking to get their home sold quickly and at a good price.”
