Russ was readily available to set up viewings - and was exceptionally responsive in assisting with the offer and throughout the negotiations. He called at every decision point and never left us 'hanging'. Also, he used his extensive knowledge of local real estate to find homes (not always listed) in our target areas.

Russ has an understated confidence in all aspects of real estate, with no hype, just action. he and his team did in 3 months what my first agent couldn't do in 1 year on the market.

John Rawdin did a great job coaching us - and keeping our house active on the market. His integrity and work ethic was much appreciated. He walked us through the entire process and kept us informed and updated.

I was under the impression that these days realtors did little but post onto multiple listing services and show homes to interested buyers. I was wrong. Russ Taylor and his team at Remax actively marketed my home. They arranged for it to be professionally staged and photographed. They gave valuable advice during the marketing phase and during the sale negotiations. They also arranged some of the inspections that were required for me. All together they did quite a lot of valuable work for me. Moving is a stressful thing. It was great to have a knowledgeable trustworthy agent in my corner to make it less stressful. Thanks Russ and Remax Mahomet for all the work you did. If you want to sell your home in Champaign county IL this is the guy to talk to. Less ... More

My wife and I were in a situation where we needed to sell our house quickly. We asked the Taylor Group to assist. I wanted the house on the market the next day. Through their expertise, they politely and professionally slowed me down. They stated the first 6 hours to 7 days your house is on the market is critical. They took over and did everything. They arranged for a professional photographer, set up the website and completed the bio on our house. The Taylor Group placed our house on the market a week later and it sold in 6 days; for more money than I paid for it just 2 years previous. They then arranged for the Appraisal and Inspection. They hired the contractors to repair/address the Inspection items. The Taylor Group is AWESOME!!! I would recommend them to anyone!!! Less ... More

Russ Taylor and his team did a great job of servicing and selling our properties in Illinois. As an out-of-state owner, he provided the type of support necessary. He had a superb knowledge of the local market and was able to sell our property at a good price. He kept me informed of the process and was very responsive to our needs. If you need a great realtor, a man you can trust, Russ is the man.

Russ knew specifically how to market our home for a quick sale. The photographer he uses is the key, along with exposure on Zillow and other well known outlets.. Very professional pictures highlighted the key features of the home. I highly recommend Russ Taylor in the Mahomet area.

My wife and I have worked with Russ' real estate agency multiple times. Once to buy our first home in Mahomet, IL. Next to sell our first home and buy a second home in Mahomet, then a decade later to sell our second Mahomet home. Each time we had a great experience. Russ and his team are pleasant, professional, knowledgeable, and offer great services.

The Russ Taylor team provided excellent and expert realty assistance during our recent move to the Champaign area. We were operating on a tight schedule and were accommodated by multiple members of the team, who all know the area very well. Tonya Lewis and Russ Taylor provided helpful insight about all of the locations we were looking at, home builders and the housing market which managed our expectations. This was the easiest home buying process we've ever experienced. We love our new home. I would highly recommend Russ Taylor and his entire Remax team to anyone moving to central Illinois. Less ...

I like Russ. I'm about to give him a great review - and am receiving no compensation for it :) And don't expect to. Because he worked hard for his money. I emailed Russ one evening and told him I was ready to move out of the house he helped me buy 7 years ago. He called me back two hours later (it was a friday he'd been out with family/friends) and asked if I was ready to look at houses and get mine listed! At the date of my choosing he came to my house. I told him I was done living there - wanted a bigger house and wanted my house sold now. He told me he'd been doing this for xx years (over 20 - can't remember the exact number). He said it was his job to get serious qualified buyers in the door. I signed a few papers. The next day I had 3 showings on the books. He followed up with those agents - always answered my text messages (at all times of the night whenever a concern popped in my head) and I had two offers within 48 hours. One was over asking price - the other was under asking price and I sold Less ... More
