Erik Taylor has called the Charleston area home for years, and enjoys all of the outdoor opportunities the Lowcountry has to offer. After life as a Commercial Pilot, Erik decided to bring his skills with detail and analytical decision-making to the real estate industry. As someone who once lived in hotels for half the year, Erik truly knows the importance of having a comfortable sanctuary to call home.
When Erik decided to be a trusted real estate resource for people in the Greater Charleston area, he brought a vast set of skills that translated quite naturally to a successful real estate career. Erik does not view the real estate industry as sales per se, but rather as an opportunity to advise people honestly and efficiently in one of, if not the biggest investments in their entire life.
Erik lives on James Island with his wife, two young children and dog Finley.

PRAISE FOR ERIK
"Erik Taylor did a great job of marketing & selling our property. He stayed in touch and kept us informed during all aspects of the listing & sales process. If we needed him for any reason, he was easy to reach and would come by our place of business to discuss particulars or drop off information. My husband and I felt Erik went above and beyond our expectations! In fact, we recently listed another property with him!
--Robert & Patricia, Mt Pleasant, SC
"Erik is the hardest working realtor in the Lowcountry!!"
--Martha, Mt. Pleasant, SC
"Erik Taylor was excellent- From the beginning when we were just considering putting our house on the market, to the end when we closed on our new home! He spent time listening and talking with us about our goals and budget and what we wanted, and he helped us get into our dream home, every step of the way. Neither of our transactions were quick and easy, but Erik stayed positive and encouraged us through the whole process. He was attentive and always available, even on weekends and evenings. We really cannot say enough good things about our experience with Erik; in both, selling our old house, and in buying our new one. We will definitely use Erik as our realtor again!"
--Meredith & Luke Hutchins, Mt Pleasant
"We have worked with other agents over the years, Erik stands out for his unfailing knowledge and interest in finding the best house for us."
--Terry and Phyllis Lazar, Daniel Island, SC
"The nicest thing about Erik is that he was extremely easy to work with. I liked his professionalism and directness. He always called me back promptly and was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would absolutely work with Erik again. My biggest pet peeve is a person who does not promptly return my calls or texts, within reason. I never once had to worry about that with Erik. I knew he was handling all aspects of my sale properly...."
--Lali Etienne, SC
"Oh my goodness! I cannot brag on Erik Taylor enough! He went totally above and beyond in helping me come to terms with my nerves in dealing with being a first time home buyer ....the patience of Job! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for someone who is professional, compassionate, and extremely tolerant ....especially of little old ladies who can't make up their minds! I made him drive all over the low-country of South Carolina in search of just the right home for me and we accomplished this feat all in one week while I was home in America during Spring break! He even gave up his Easter Sunday afternoon to show me a house! It was a great experience and I look forward to my children using him to sell my home in the future, way off in the future, when all is said and done, and my will is read! He can now officially be qualified as an overseas sales agent having closed this deal for me while I was living in Germany!"
--Courtney Daniels - currently in Weiden, Germany
"Erik did a great job listing and selling a family home. I live out of state and thought the sales process would be very challenging but Erik made it very manageable. He was very accessible, responded quickly to any questions or concerns, provided frequent updates and relevant feedback/suggestions regarding the status of the sale. He has many business contacts in the area and was able to help secure the services (contractor, surveyor, lawyer) we needed to expedite and complete the sale; we were very pleased with all the vendors he recommended. Working with Erik was a very positive experience and I would recommend his services to anyone looking to buy/sell in the Charleston area."
"Erik Taylor was awesome. He was extremely helpful and patient and gave great advice without trying to influence my decision one way or another. He worked extremely hard on my request and constantly kept me updated and informed. I am extremely happy with my purchase."--Josiah Winter
