Below are some of Michael's agent testimonials:



As one of the top 10 affiliated independent sales associates in the Greater Sarasota Bay Region with Coldwell Banker and one of the top 100 sales associates across Florida, Judy Aarnes has the following to say about Michael as Managing Broker: 

"Coldwell Banker is a great company and one of the reasons to affiliate with Lakewood Ranch is because of the managing broker, Michael Taylor. He is always available  to answer any question that I have. His cell phone is never off. The support that he provides his agents is unparalleled.


"Michael Taylor's support and guidance has allowed me to build my real estate business from scratch, with zero experience in the industry, into a thriving and continually growing business. He is truly the single most valuable asset to my business."
"Michael is an incredible coach. For a brand new independent agent the contracts and intricacies of real estate were very intimidating. He sat right at my side when I had to write my first contract and he walked my customers, and me, through the entire contract step by step explaining everything and showing me how to write a good contract. He never rushes me out of his office and always has time to answer the small questions that come up during the day-to-day activities of doing business."  


"As a sales associate new to real estate, it is critical to work with an experienced Broker who really cares about helping you grow your business for long-term success. Michael Taylor consistently provides guidance and leadership, and has a unique ability to help each associate leverage his/her individual strengths for success."


"Michael was an independent sales associate  in the past which makes him an advocate  sales associates as a branch manager.  He is never judgemental, yet will always offer constructive advice and help  agents every step of the way.  In my 30 years working as a realtor affiliated with Coldwell Banker I have never had such a supportive branch manager."
