Alan sold our hillside Sherman Oaks property in probate for $200,000 over appraisal … from a business standpoint that illustrates excellent strategy, planning and organization. In addition, Alan was very knowledgeable about his field, very accessible and very responsive in his communication with me throughout the entire process. I would recommend Alan unequivocally.

I have known Alan Taylor for many years and have always found him to be honest and fair. I recently hired him to list and sell a home in Encino. Not only did he get me more money that I had hoped for, but he made the process seamless. If you are considering buying or selling a home, Alan Taylor needs to be at the top of your list.

Alan helped us sell our house during the Covid-19 Pandemic. With tremendous uncertainty, he guided us to navigate the new world of real estate buying and selling, from photography, interior design, showing, inspection, to closing. He kept us informed on what was going on, while inviting our input and advising us on the next step to take. Alan is great at what he does. He is very professional, and yet personable at the same time. We are very grateful for having him on our side in making this important and challenging life transition timely and smoothly.
