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.
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 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
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
My husband and I absolutely LOVED working with Sydnie and her entire team!! They really made us feel like part of the “family”. That’s a big statement as we were very tough clients!! We were in an unusual situation in that we had a very short time to find a very specific home that had to tick so many boxes. Icing on the cake…. we hadn’t narrowed down a neighborhood AND lived out of state. None of this phased Sydnie at all!!
We would take turns flying in for whirlwind days...see more
We were first time homebuyers, and were lucky enough to find Sydnie Taylor!
From the start she sat us down and explained the entire process to us, listened to our ideals for our new home and helped us put that into context in todays market.
Sydnie knows Seattle exceptionally well; her knowledge of the local market (Ballard for us) and climate was exceptional. Throughout the entire adventure she was honest, candid and most notably, wanted to find the home that was right for us, one tha...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
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
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.
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
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 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
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 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
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...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
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
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 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
