A little about Sydnie:
I grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and have called Seattle home for more than 20 years. Seattle is where I attended college, met my husband Michael, and became a mom – first to two pugs and then to two daughters, Hudson and Alexandra. We currently live in Green Lake with our Golden Retriever, Roy, but I have lived and worked in neighborhoods all over this city.
I bought my first house, a fixer-upper in Ballard when I was 23. (At the time, my friends were asking, “What the heck is Ballard?”) My dad gave me my “wedding fund” early to pay the 3% down payment. The house was a dump – the basement was flooding, there was asbestos in the ceilings, and it needed a new roof and sewer line, not to mention extensive remodel work. I love nothing more than a challenge, and my passion for looking at houses, seeing their potential and improving them continues to this day. (By the way – I never did need that wedding fund; I got married in a courthouse and used the money to remodel my kitchen!)
Why did I decide to become a Realtor?
It seemed only natural that my career path would lead me to become a Realtor. I have a long history in the client service industry. In college, I was a part-time nanny and spent my summers working in restaurants. I also spent 10 years in the medical sales industry. But my favorite job is Realtor, which allows me to combine my pleasure for working with clients and my passion for real estate.
For most people, buying a house is the biggest investment they’ll ever make. Selecting the right agent is critical. It can make or break your real estate experience. When I represent my clients in their real estate buying or selling needs, they can expect the utmost in client service. As a listing agent, I provide full services, including professional staging, magazine-quality photos and virtual 3-D tours to bring in buyers from outside the state and country. My weekends are generally spent helping clients get their houses ready for market. Additionally, I am constantly reviewing offers, which informs my own ability to write compelling and competitive offers for my buying clients.
My goal is to make this process a relationship and not a transaction. I pride myself in the quality of my relationships not only with clients, but with lenders, contractors and other real estate agents. From starting the loan process to navigating the home search to recommending electricians, landscapers or even hairdressers, I always deliver. While I’ve been fortunate to have many repeat clients, I also love working with new home buyers and those who are listing homes for the first time!
Through email, text or phone, I will provide as much communication as my clients need. I also go the extra mile for clients who want help staging their homes. Whether looking to buy or sell a home, I am ready to assist you in every step of the process. I provide exceptional real estate services in Seattle and beyond and look forward to seeing what I can do for you!
Whatever your goals in Seattle’s real estate market, I’m here to help make your home buying or selling process as easy, as efficient as FUN as possible. Call, email or text for an informational meeting, anytime.
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 recomme...see more
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 r...see more
Sydnie is a miracle worker! She helped me find exactly what I was looking for in a challenging housing market. She was attentive, responsive, creative, knowledgeable and just fun during the entire process! I would highly recommend Sydnie for any of your real estate needs!
In today’s home buying market in Seattle, you need to get it right the first time. That’s exactly why Sydnie Taylor exceeded every expectation during the purchase of our home. She listened closely to what we wanted and never took us to look at or suggested something outside of our price range or desired neighborhoods. She knows a good house when she sees one and isn’t afraid to steer you away from the ones you should skip over. She is an outstanding communicator who responds promptly to me...see more
We met Sydnie as a referral from my father. Sydnie sold their home and helped them purchase their new home as well. I was absolutely blown away by her approach to selling homes. She was extremely professional, very understanding, and ultimately made a very hard, challenging time (moving with 3 young children), seamless and extremely easy. She was upfront, blunt and told me exactly what to expect, how things would go, and left literally no stone unturned. We were uneasy about some of the things ...see more
Sydnie was recommenced to my wife and me from trusted friends who also had a great experience. We went in thinking we knew a ton, but her and her colleague Danny walked us through the whole process and filled in the blanks of information we were missing or helped us understand something differently if we had it wrong. Honest, open, and non-judgmental about each house we looked at. They would help us weigh the pros and cons and always had some insight that we wouldn’t have thought of. When we...see more
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!
Sydnie is really knowledgeable about the real estate market and knows what it takes to help her clients win in Seattle’s competitive and fast-moving market. Her strength is in building relationships with the other realtor and other professionals in the home space. For example, she regularly went above and beyond to coordinate last-minute inspections and sewer scopes for us. And these were good inspectors. We’re working with an electrician now who keeps commenting on how thorough our inspect...see more
Sydnie Taylor is a top-shelf broker. We were in the fortunate position of listing our Laurelhurst home during an active time in the market and Sydnie provided informed and insightful guidance to maximize the value. From staging the furniture, to timing the listing, to evaluating the 7+ offers we received, she was a valued partner. The result was that our sale price far exceeded the asking price. Sydnie brings energy and excitement into everything she does. She is a pleasure to work with and w...see more
I am a very busy mother of two babies under two years old and my husband and I just recently listed our 2008 home for sale with Sydnie and her (amazing!) team. My house didn’t need much work but they knew exactly where to put the focus for optimum results (fresh coat of paint, carpet, staging, even freshly planted flowers in my pots on a snow day!) I was too busy packing up the house and planning the move so didn’t have time or energy to decide on paint colors and carpet samples and getting...see more
Sydnie has helped me buy two houses in the past 8 years. She is the person you want on your team in this competitive Seattle market. Sydnie is knowledgeable, efficient, responsive, a total go-getter and will tell it like it is. As a bonus, she’s super fun to be around! Not only is she a pro at writing winning offers in multiple bid situations, but she’s also extremely well-connected and is an invaluable resource once you’re in your new dream home that you beat our 5 other offers for (yes, ...see more
Sydnie was amazing! She helped my wife and I find the perfect house for us in Seattle (no small feat in this market) and worked around our schedule as we traveled between Seattle and Los Angeles. Sydnie was patient with us no matter how many houses we looked at, and we never felt pressured. Let her find you a home!
Sydnie was amazing throughout the entire process. She not only listed and sold our rental property, she went above & beyond. She managed the entire process of quickly flipping it so it was in beautiful condition and ready sell! She made strong recommendations on what areas to improve and was able to quickly get vendors in so our time and money was not wasted. She knew what proactive measures to take upfront that prevented us from losing profits after the inspection process.

Sydnie Taylor is the person you want representing you in this market. She is smart, she is thorough, and while she is incredibly busy, she makes you feel like you are the only person she is working for.
Sydnie found us our perfect house in less than a week and saved me a ton of time and energy by scoping out houses for me ahead of time and whittling down the ones that looked great in pictures but were not homes that would really work for our family.
Her commitment to providing great cust...see more
Just wanted to let you [Sydnie] know how much I appreciate 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 guidan...see more
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 with our decision to hire Sydnie to sell our home.
Buying/selling a home can be stressful, but we were in the best hands with Sydnie. She whipped our house into shape so quickly and so beautifully (but at minimal cost) that it was tough to leave! In fact, we did not have to leave for awhile after the sale of our house because Sydnie negotiated a long rent-back from the buyers while we remodelled our new home. We also received multiple offers due to Sydnie’s pricing recommendations based upon her understanding of the Seattle market.
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 n...see more
