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.
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 droppe...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 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
Honestly, Sydnie is the best possible agent you could possibly work with. Providence brought us together at a random open house and fate must have been smiling on us that day. We didn’t really know the first thing about buying a house, where to look, what to look for etc, and she was so incredibly patient with us and all our quirky requests. Seeing as we were first time buyers we were not at all easy to work with (I know I looked at over 100+ houses) but she stuck with us through it all. ...see more
Sydnie is the best! She’s so much fun to work with; all of the real estate agent charm, none of the slime. Sydnie and her team are incredibly talented, knowledgeable, and fun to work with. When she helped us purchase our first home in 2012 we had no idea what we were doing. She took the time to answer all of our questions, guide us through the process, and not rush our decision. Years later, she offered to come back and walk through the house to help us choose the right remodelling projects t...see more
My husband and I are so thankful that Sydnie was referred to us. We were first time home buyers and she listened to what we were looking for and really helped us talk through all of our options in the midst of the crazy Seattle market. Ultimately we got our house for under the asking price and the sellers did some work based on the inspection, something that never happens these days! Even after we bought our home we have reached out to Sydnie multiple times for advice on contractors, remodel va...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!
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.
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 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.
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
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.
We found Sydnie through a referral from a friend, and our experience could not have been better! We had been in contact with her for about a year as we considered putting our Seattle house on the market. She was very proactive and kept in touch over the year, and we all came to an agreement on when the timing was right to put our house up for sale. Sydnie represented us on both the sell and buy side, and we were in excellent hands every step of the way.

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
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
Sydnie (and her partner Danny) did an absolutely fantastic job of selling our home and representing us on the purchase of our new home. Being a family with 3 kids we knew we needed some work done on our current home in order to get it ready to market. Sydnie had a project plan that went 7 days a week for about 3 dozen activities, coordinated all quotes and contractors and took on all the burdens for us so we could focus on moving our family into our new home. Once everything settled, our ho...see more
Sydnie knew exactly how to sell our house in the Green Lake area. We wanted someone from Lake & Co. who knew the market and could get us an offer to close in less than 2 months. Sydnie got the house staged, put up for sale with marketing/open houses, and received multiple offers above asking price in two weeks. We got a great price and a fast closing with no snags. The hot Seattle market was entirely new to us. Sydnie guided us through the fast-paced marketing and multiple offer process.
