The Taylor-Made Real Estate


Chad Taylor
Listing Specialist

With a background in the service industry (Houston’s Restaurant on the Plaza), Chad’s real estate career began in October 2004 when the real estate market was a hot seller’s market. Chad has been heard to say that “he thought real estate was his calling because he could put a sign in the yard and it would sell the same day.” This was the case until three short years later when the recession hit the Kansas City housing market.  “I quickly learned that either I needed to get really good at what I do or get out of the business altogether,” Chad said.  Chad quickly became a student of the market and made it his goal to become the local real estate economist of choice. 


“I am so thankful for the lessons that the recession taught me.  It taught me how to interpret the market, how to price a home in any market, and most importantly how to set expectations for our sellers to ensure that they have a great experience with our team during their home sale.” 


Chad’s favorite testimonial from a past client reads, “If you want a laid-back easy-going agent, Chad Taylor may not be the agent for you.”  He is a bottom-line, results focused person who is always focused on providing great service to our clients.  It seems that you can take the man out of the service industry, but you cannot take the service industry out of the man.


Chad is married to Leah Taylor, TMT’s lead buyer specialist and they have two awesome boys, Ben and Harry.  He grew up fishing with his dad, David Taylor, and now enjoys doing the same with Ben, Harry, and David.  Chad enjoys working out at 20/20 CrossFit in Prairie Village and has no other athletic ability except for random bar games like shuffleboard, darts, and the like.  Chad and Leah both love to cook and entertain for friends and family.  Lastly, Chad is a music nerd and loves nothing more than a great live show.
