“Holly and Mike were so great to work with.  We knew from day #1 that we were going to enjoy working with them.  They were very easy to talk to and to work with.  When we had questions, they would answer them right away or get the answer right away.  We would 100% recommend them to anyone.  We are excited to purchase our next place with them.” 

Brian and Jessica H., Des Moines



“Holly Taylor has handled the sale of two homes for me and the purchase of one home.  She has professionally and swiftly handled every aspect of the process each time, including one sale where I was located 100 miles away from the property.  She is detail-oriented and never fails to consider all factors necessary to meet my goals.  She was available to work with my tight schedule twice and always returns my calls quickly.  I will gladly refer her to anyone needing Realtor services. “ 

Laura F., Mason City


"Mike and Holly are great Realtors.  They listen to concerns, wants, and requirements.  They give feedback and suggestions.  I have bought and sold many houses with them over the last 11 years, and I would not go with anyone else.  They really get to know their clients and make them feel like they are the only ones they have."

Sarah G., Des Moines


"Brian and I couldn't be happier that we had the Taylors as our Realtors.  They were always 100% honest with us and made sure we always knew what was going on with the sale.  Whenever we had a question, they always answered it right away.  We are so lucky that we were introduced to them.  We are now lucky to call them good friends."

"From start to finish, Mike and Holly were engaged and acted as true advocates for us during the buying process.  They offered knowledgeable opinions and provided responses to any questions we had along the way with multiple options for securing our home."

The Reed Family, Des Moines


"My wife and I have worked with Holly and Mike both buying and selling, and they have provided excellent service both times.  Particularly during our sale, when some technical questions came up which complicated the paperwork, Holly put in the extra effort and late hours contacting the necessary people and running down documents to make sure that our sale came off on time and was convenient to our schedules."

Sean and Jenni S., Pleasant Hill


"The Taylors are a huge asset to have on your side as you sell your home and purchase a new one.  We put them to the test through our search, and they showed tremendous patience, skill and knowledge that helped us to make the most educated decision in purchasing our new home as well as selling our previous home.  They were always responsive to questions and communicated clearly.  The Taylors were amazing, and we value that."

David and Dawn R., Johnston


"Holly and Mike were excellent!  I was particularly pleased with how well Holly handled negotiations with the buyers once we had an initial contract accepted.  Requests were communicated quickly and clearly and with proper context and advice.  They were very helpful in ensuring our transaction moved along and that both buyer and seller were satisfied with the outcome."

"Mike and Holly, now that the fence is up, the boxes are unpacked and we're getting settled in, we thought it was about time to drop you a note of thanks.  We're really feeling at home in our new place and appreciate all your help (above and beyond the expected) that got us here."

"Mike and Holly Taylor did an excellent job in getting my home sold.  I got a new job in a new profession in a new town and had to sell quickly.  They were very informative and answered any and all questions so that I understood the what's and why's.  I would recommend them to anyone selling their house.  They are honest and trustworthy and really understood my position.  They did what they could to help the sell move along at a pace suited for my needs.  Thanks!"

"When I decided to buy my first house, I couldn't think of anyone else to help me find the perfect place.  I knew the Taylors would take care of me in making sure I understood everything.  They were always available for any questions I had.  They also were available to show me any houses I became interested in.  I would recommend them for anyone wanting to buy their perfect house."

Elle A., Urbandale


"Linda and I wanted you to know how much we enjoyed working with Mike and Holly Taylor in purchasing our home in Johnston.  We first contacted Mike to begin our house hunting process and spent a considerable amount of time working with him to evaluate potential homes in Johnston, Ankeny, and Urbandale.  Mike provided us with valuable assistance by sending electronic listings daily and keeping us well informed via emails and phone calls.  Any time we called or emailed, he was quick to respond.  He offered us outstanding analysis and insight that was invaluable in our decision-making process.  Mike and Holly earned our complete trust and we appreciate their candor in helping us evaluate many different homes.  In addition, Holly's professional support added to our enjoyable experience.  We are very grateful that we were so well represented in negotiating and completing such an important transaction.  We could not be happier with our home buying experience.  We have the highest regard for both Mike and Holly and wanted you to know our feelings.  

John and Linda W., Johnston

"Holly and Mike have been helping my husband and I with houses for about 13 years.  They have also helped my mom and my grandfather too.  They have touched my families lives in ways that I could have never imagined.  Because of them, my parents are homeowners again and that has lifted their spirits incredibly.  We appreciate all they have done for us and we will absolutely use them again.  They are always available to answer my questions and I appreciate their knowledge of the market."

The Crane Family, Zearing


"We had worked previously with Mike and Holly when we bought our condo in 2008.  We decided to put it on the market and thought it would take a while to sell.  They got it sold in only 4 days!  There were some issues come closing day but Holly went above and beyond to make sure closing happened while also making sure both the buyers and we were happy.  They were available 24/7 to answer questions and always kept us in the loop and explained every step of the process.  The Taylors showed through this process that they are always looking out for what is best for their clients.  When it came to the buying process, this was also evident as we decided to build a new house.  Through the building process (which lasted about 5 months), they were in int every step of the way.  There were several issues that arose, and Holly took on the challenges and made sure that our needs were met and that at the end of the day, we were happy with the outcome.  Closing was delayed and almost delayed a second time, but they stayed patient and were on our side 100% in every situation.  The Taylors are the type of Realtors that put their clients first, treats them as family and will stop at nothing to make sure their clients are happy."

The Clark Family, Grimes


"Holly and Mike were always quick to get back to us with and questions or concerns we had and were always honest and open with us about everything.  My husband and I felt that we were treated with respect and had an amazing experience with purchasing our first home.  They were very knowledgeable of the area and were very good at finding us what we were looking for off of our criteria.  They found us and amazing home in our budget and we couldn't be happier.  We feel as if we made close friends in the process and would recommend the Taylors to any of our friends and family.  Thanks for all your hard work and commitment to us!"

Wes and Ryan D., Grimes


"Mike and Holly did an amazing job helping me with the purchase of my home.  There was a complication with my loan and Holly went above and beyond to ensure I get the house.  They also sacrificed hours showing me houses and researching each of them with great details.  They were in constant contact with my bank and the seller.  Their knowledge of the real estate business is second to none and they know how to handle any situation.  Holly is very thorough with documentation and was exceptional in the negotiations.  There is no one else I would go with and I would recommend them to everyone."

Matt D., Urbandale


"We knew from the start of our transition from a home to a condo that Mike and Holly were the ones for us.  Mike knew just which condo would fulfill our needs and wants.  Although we made them take us to see a few others, we always came back to the one he showed us first.  Through the stress of selling our home and the joy of getting us into our new condo, to say Mike and Holly went the extra mile is an understatement.  Expertise A+, Personality A+, Compassion A+, Patience A+.  It was the best experience we've ever had thru numerous agents in the past.  Thanks Mike and Holly!
