A little about Sydnie:
I grew up in the Northwest and am the middle child of three. I attended the University of Washington (Cougar fans, I also spent a semester at WSU). I have always worked in the client service industry. In college, I was a part-time nanny and spent my summers working in restaurants. Additionally, I spent 10 years in the medical sales industry. Green Lake is currently the neighborhood I call home. I live there with my two pugs, Oliver and Vince, and my husband, Michael and our daughters Hudson and Alexandra. In my free time I enjoy running, photography and traveling.

Why did I decide to become a Realtor?
There are a number of reasons I decided to become a Realtor. I bought my first house, a "fixer upper," when I was 23 and have always enjoyed looking at houses, improving them, and reading about the real estate market. As more of my friends jumped into the real estate market I noticed some recurring themes running through the group about their experiences. Some, of course, had positive experiences, but for those who didn't, I felt I could create an experience that left a smile on my client's faces upon turning the key to their new home.

For most people, buying a home is the biggest investment they'll ever make. Some people have already found their perfect home and are looking for an agent to write up and negotiate an offer, while others have just started their home-buying experience and would like guidance through the whole process. From starting the loan process to searching for the perfect place to call home, selecting the right agent is critical. It can make or break one's real estate experience. When I represent my clients in their real estate buying or selling needs, they can expect the utmost in client service. I will always deliver it.

I keep the lines of communication open through various mediums. Whether via email, text or phone, I will provide as much communication as my clients deem necessary. I also go the extra mile for my clients who need help with staging their homes. Generally, my weekends are spent helping clients clean up their houses to get them ready to market. Whether looking to buy or sell a home, I am ready to assist in every step of the process. I've provided exceptional real estate services in Seattle and beyond and can't wait to help you with your needs too.

  • If you are thinking about selling yours, please her a call:

    We have known Sydnie Taylor for several years and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. She represented us in the fall of 2011 when we purchased our dream home in Laurelhurst. This ended up being a difficult negotiation with several unforseen obstables. If it were not for Sydnie we likely would not have our home today! Her expertise, business-savvy, and persistence were crucial to our success! In addition, she was helpful and very available to us every step of the way! We couldn't be happier and would love to discuss our experience with anyone who is looking for an amazing real-estate agent!

  • From beginning and throughout the process, Sydnie provided stellar yet personal service, always with a smile, and even managed to find time to exchange "mom" stories over paperwork. While this entire process could have been daunting, we felt completely taken care of every step of the way.

    Without a doubt I am thrilled withour decision to hire Sydnie to sell our home.
    -The Brown Family
  • Without a doubt we will refer Sydnie to all friends and family. Thank you for professional guidance and friendly support during this process. Sydnie made this a seamless transition for our family. We feel so grateful that we met you. Thank you again for everything!

  • As a first-time homebuyer who has just signed the papers on our DREAM HOME, I freely admit that I was what you would call a "high-maintenance client." Fortunately, my husband and I had an agent in Sydnie Taylor who was able to handle all of our many questions with expertise, energy and efficiency. She sold my husband's townhouse in one week flat (a full-price offer!) and then searched tirelessly for our new home. Sydnie made herself available to us at all hours of the day and was very quick to respond to our requests and inquiries. In fact, she missed seeing her best friend give birth because she was negotiating a deal on our new house, which had two other offers at the time! Thanks to Sydnie's diligence, ability to build a compelling offer and establish a rapport with the selling agent, we were able to close the deal. We couldn't be happier and we could not recommend Sydnie Taylor more highly.
    Thank you Sydnie!!!

  • Every day you are bombarded with the medias constant headlines reading, “ US Housing Market Crashes!”, or “ Foreclosure Rates at all time High so GOOD LUCK SELLING!”

    And of course, with every article comes every opinion….

    My wife and I after many hours of contemplation decided it was time to take a risk and try and sell our town home to take advantage of the “low home prices.” Our neighbors townhouse had been sitting on the market for nearly 4 months with no offers and dropped in price nearly $35,000. We knew what we were up against trying to sell our town home in this market a week and a half before Christmas, and knew the only way to really beat the odds was to find the right realtor who understood how to make it happen.

    Once word gets out that you are interested in selling, (especially now a days) every friend you know comes knocking on your front door referring this person or that person. So needless to say we had our fair share of agent interviews. It’s not cheap to sell your house and you should have an agent that delivers what you are paying for, and in my opinion that is ABOVE EXCELLENT SERVICE. We must have heard the “speech” from nearly 20 agents and were convinced that none of them had the skills to make it happen. Even our neighbors realtor from Windermere with over 19 years in the Ballard/Seattle market could not close their deal. Lucky for us however, we stumbled upon an agent named Sydnie Taylor from Lake Realty. During the initial phone interview she mentioned that she partnered with an agent named Danny Adamson. We decided to give them a shot and WE ARE SO GLAD WE DID.

    Sydnie and Danny came to the house and we were given the royal treatment from their first breath. Once we heard how Lake Realty, Sydnie and Danny work to sell the property, we were sold. The thing that set them apart from the other agents was their realistic expectations and understanding of the importance of attention to detail. This detail was carried throughout everything they did. From the sign in the front, the MLS listing, photos, Brokers Open, Open Houses etc. to sitting by our side during final title signing, Sydnie and Danny never skipped a beat.

    Sydnie and Danny were able to sell our town home for $5,000 above asking price in 1 week 3 days. Did I mention the house was sold and our offer accepted by Christmas Day. Talk about beating the odds!

    Since it was the holidays we were in California and Sydnie and Danny handled all the inspections, negotiations, discussions etc and all we had to do is say yes or no and sign a few papers. Danny really went the extra mile even contacting us on Christmas Day to explain where we were at in the process so our holiday could be its best.


    Fast forward and now I am sitting in a beautiful home in Loyal Heights (which they negotiated about $52,000 below asking price with $4,000 closing costs) and completely in awe of what an amazing job our agents have done. Everyone I tell has asked for a card and anyone lucky enough to work with them should feel blessed.

  • Sydnie Taylor is a superb real estate agent. She is diligent, timely, aggressive, and reasonable. We bought our first home with Sydnie and she made the experience for us absolutely perfect. She is a total go-getter, has amazing intuition and insight, and represents her clients in the most professional and effectual means possible. Additionally, since house-hunting can be stressful and tedious, she always finds a way to make it entertaining and enjoyable. She is AWESOME and I make sure to recommend her to everyone I know who needs an agent. She will not disappoint you.
    --Jenny Wetzel
  • Sydnie is by far the most personable, professional, dedicated and knowledgeable agent I have worked with during my 13 year real estate career. She has an impressive communication style and makes you feel like you are her only client. She will work hard for you on every aspect of the transaction. She helped me get top dollar for my house and assisted with staging, contractor contacts, and expert advice and negotiation. I highly recommend you hire Sydnie whether you are buying or selling.
    --Jannicke Tvedt
  • I've known Sydnie personally for years, and when it came time to purchase a home, she was the first person I called. Sydnie is an absolute professional and works hard for her clients.

    I appreciated her tenacity, her commitment to making sure we felt supported, and excellent understanding of the market. We boought our Green Lake home at a price we found fair and without having to use any escalator clauses. I would readily recommend her to anyone considering buying a home and would be happy to work with Sydnie again.
  • My wife and I bought our home from Sydnie... I wouldn't hesitate to wokr with her again. Working with Sydnie reminds you why it's a pleasure to work with good sales people.

    She listened. At the front end, Sydnie interviewed us to ensure homes she showed were in line with our gaols, needs, wants. She observed our reactions and adjusted so that homes number 8 and 9 were better fits than 6 and 7.

    She drove the process and kept us doing the things we needed to do to get a decision, but she never pushed. If she sensed hesitation, "Lots of other homes, let's move on."

    Finally, Sydnie did a great job structuring the deal so that we competed on terms rather than price. Winning a competitive offer without touching escalators is no small feat. Great experience!
  • Just wanted to let you [Sydnie] know how much I appreicate all that you have done... You listened to our needs and wants and only directed us to the houses that would become our home. We never wasted our time looking at places that would not have worked.

    When the time came to put a bid on the house you were there each step of the way making it painless and easy. I never would have thought about all the things that we needed to do in order for our bid to be the one that was chosen. Your guidance made it possible for us to get our dream house.

    Thank you so much.
