About Derrick F. Taylor

How may we serve your real estate needs?

We firmly believe in serving every client according to their needs. My team and I strictly abide by the words of Matthew 20:26 when doing so:

"Whoever would be great among you must be your servant."

It is our pleasure to serve and satisfy our client’s needs when it comes to buying, selling, leasing or investing in the greater DFW area, including Arlington, Burleson, Cedar Hill, Crowley, Duncanville, Desoto, Fort Worth, Forest Hill, Everman, Grand Prairie, Irving, Kennedale, and Mansfield.

We work with traditional residential home buyers and sellers and investors. There is also a great demand for military homes in these areas. We specialize in representing our servicemen and women and their families, who frequently relocate. Our involvement in the HomeTown Heroes program, gives us outstanding resources to do so. Through this program, we also assist police, fire, education, non-profits, medical, and government professionals.

Your REALTOR should have real estate expertise! We put our collective knowledge and experience to work for you. By listening to your needs and paying attention to the details, we ensure the timely completion of your purchase or sale. We are there for you with expert advice on all issues pertaining to the paperwork or financing of a purchase or sale. We focus on your specific housing situation and tailor our services to suit your individual needs and circumstances.

Personally, I have a background in engineering, which lends itself to the detail work and occasional problem-solving needed when you have multiple parties and complex transactions at hand. I am a people-person, I grew up in Louisiana, love hunting, fishing, and spending lots of time with my wife of 23 years, and two grown children.

It would be an honor to make your home purchase or sale a great experience... from the initial decision to buy or sell, through the showings/viewings, the negotiations, to the final signatures, and beyond.

Get in touch soon if you are thinking of a purchase or sale in the DFW area.
