Alan Taylor’s passion for Trust and Probate began with a desire to guide, assist, and meet the needs of trustees and executors burdened with the responsibility of selling residential real estate through probate or a trust. Alan’s specialized skills and marketing expertise are designed to reduce liability, generate strong interest, and produce higher-than-market-value sale prices. Prior clientele includes an array of lawyers, CPAs, and financial managers seeking exceptional service.

Through his work, Alan also received the title of Executive Director for Trust and Probate, a position where he offers lectures and trains other agents in matters relating to Trust and Probate.

Driven by an appreciation for the differences these transactions encounter along the way, Alan goes above and beyond to ensure his clients receive the best possible return, from selling a property as-is to handling a full renovation using his teams of industry-trusted professionals.

  • Preparation

    Alan and his team have extensive experience preparing homes for sale, ensuring clients can rest assured that we have the resources to maximize the appearance of the home when it is time for market. Our list of approved and vetted service providers includes contractors, stagers, designers, organizers, and estate salespeople who can handle everything from property item removal to cleaning to a full-scale renovation.

  • Selecting the List Price

    Our in-depth market knowledge and understanding of the complexity of probate and trust transactions will assist you in choosing the right list price, resulting in a competitive buying environment and an above–market value sale price.

  • Marketing

    Using a dynamic combination of high-impact traditional marketing and state-of-the-art technology, we aggressively promote your property to the widest possible audience of buyers and agents locally, nationally, and internationally.

  • Control

    Trust and Probate sales can vary quite significantly from that of more “standard” sales, so we conduct our marketing and sale process specifically to meet the needs of the seller. Thus, our constant education and communication to interested parties and agents will ensure more offers written in line with the expressed desires of the trustee, executor, or attorney. We are in complete control.

  • Compassion

    Whether navigating a complex legal situation or the emotion of selling a loved one’s home, we understand what our clients are going through. Our no-nonsense expert approach is designed to make your life as easy as possible during your time of need.


Alan has sold many properties held by Trust fiduciaries that I have represented and in each instance has performed in an exemplary fashion. I do not hesitate to recommend the services he provides.

Ellis S. - Stern & Goldberg LLP

I knew that when it came time to sell my childhood home in Beverly Hills, I wanted Alan to handle the listing. He is honest, trustworthy, a pleasure to work with, extremely knowledgeable and puts his clients first. His team is responsive and above all, always professional. We will continue to use Alan in the future.

Adrienne B. – Trustee

Alan handled the probate sale of my sister’s home in Calabasas and helped arrange for repairs and made the house look its very best without needless expenditure of funds. He was attentive, responsive, reasonable, thoughtful and objective throughout the showing and negotiation process. I have worked with many brokers in the past and Alan ranks at the top in service and professionalism.
