The Difference


Nobody’s perfect, but we’re as close as it gets in the real estate business. We track a wide range of statistics in order to measure and adjust our practices for superior bottom line results. Our track record in percentage of listings sold, sell-to-list price ratio, and days on market out-perform the most highly touted local competition. Want to see what we’re about? Just ask and our stats are available for your most discerning review.


We literally pound the pavement! Our daily schedule features multiple appointments including door knocking, open houses, phone calls to our database of contacts property tours, and socializing at the club. We are constantly connecting with buyers, sellers, agents, lenders, and vendors to stay current with opportunities, trends, and the latest shifts in the market. We literally sell tens of millions of dollars worth of property annually as a direct result of our networking! .


I know, I know, every real estate agent is a “master” negotiator, but we put our money where our mouth is. We’ve identified and focus our efforts on leveraging four unique negotiations that occur in nearly every real estate transaction. It’s all about setting a tone and being consistent from the first phone call for a showing through closing day. By properly communicating, setting expectations, and winning each negotiation our clients maximize value regardless of which side of the table they’re on.

Team Model

Many hands make light work. Why work with a single agent when you can have a team supporting your every need? Through division of tasks, constant support, and decades of experience you can rest assured throughout what is likely the largest financial and emotional transaction in your life. Every member of Mason|Taylor Properties excels in a specific component of our business. Teams are the future of real estate advising.

Home Preparation

You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression and with Mason|Taylor Properties you won’t have to worry about that. One-third of our business plan for each listing is dedicated to preparing your home to sell at or above list price. From landscaping to inspections and improvements to staging, we review and discuss every detail that’s sure to influence buyer’s perception of value and how they act as a result. Melding a finished product with dramatic visuals and a compelling story is the backbone to our approach and your success.

Young & Hungry

We’re more than just pretty faces, focusing on growing our business daily. Our team is here for the long run and it’s reflected in our actions. We’re all in our thirties and working hard to earn each client and close every transaction. Give us a chance and we’ll make sure it’s the right one.
