I recently worked with Bruce Taylor selling my long-time home in Santa Cruz and purchasing a manufactured home in a park across town. My sister made a similar transition several years ago and we are both so glad we had Bruce to help us through this stressful process. Bruce has many years of knowledge and experience with real estate in the Santa Cruz area and he helped me every step of the way with my sale. He put together a sparkling sales package for my house and expertly fielded several offers that came in, helping me decide which one was best for me. He was also a huge help on the other end of the transaction with the purchase of our new places in the manufactured home park. Bruce was able to make a complex and challenging process seem easy. I could totally rely on him to take care of all the details so that I didn’t have to worry about any of it. He was great to work with, always returned calls and texts right away, was patient and understanding, and kept things upbeat. A few things I especially liked: when he didn’t know something he actually said so . . then he found out and got back to me! He stayed away from predictions and promises, and there were no unwelcome surprises. He followed through and did what he said he would. He is a good listener. And he always has a smile. I had complete confidence in him to make the whole process go smoothly and get me the best result possible. I would highly recommend him.
My wife and I have worked with Bruce when we bought our townhouse at 116 Fife Lane and then a second time 7 years later when we sold the same house. Bruce is very easy to work with and his follow-up is second to none. We met with him to sell and he gave us very good information on how to prepare our house to be ready for selling. He had a photographer take 30 pictures inside and out of our townhouse and this was a great selling tool. These pictures created much traffic to our house and several neighbors commented on the amount of traffic that was created. During the two days the house was for sale he maintained the house to always look clean and tidy. I believe he did a great job marketing our house and it sold in just two days and we had seven offers, all being well above the asking price. He also maintained a great relationship with the new buyer working through their realtor. He gave us positive steps in finalizing the closing and made the transition go very smoothly. His assistance in the small things such as touching base with the utilities also proved helpful. In closing, we’ve worked twice with Bruce Taylor and we were very happy. I would very highly recommend this man.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Bruce. He was very responsive, positive, and easy to work with. We worked together very well to make sure both of our clients had a good outcome. I would love to work with him again.
