Jane Taylor has worked as an estate agent in North Devon for over 35 years. In 2007, Jane set up taylor underwood, an estate agency dedicated to delivering a personal, professional and unrivalled service for the area. Jane’s love of the beautiful North Devon countryside and coast has led to her specialising in lifestyle and coastal properties. With such experience and knowledge, there is hardly a nook or cranny in the area that Jane doesn’t know!
Many purchasers come from afield, particularly the South East, as well as overseas, purchasing their slice of the North Devon coast as a personal holiday home or as an investment opportunity. The reputation of this coast has been rising for some years. Buyers are attracted by the surfing beaches, the glorious countryside and the relaxed pace of life.
The coastal market tends to behave differently from the rest of the housing market, and this is one of the reasons the area is favoured for investment properties and second homes. Even through the recession and times of uncertainty, the value of quality coastal homes here remained relatively stable.
Jane is well respected locally and her many business contacts are familiar with her boundless energy, infectious laugh and enthusiasm for the job.
“Of course, when an agent works with someone selling their home,” she says, “it is a close working relationship, involving trust and honesty. From a personal and professional point of view, it is important that people feel they can trust me to work in their very best interests. At taylor underwood we pull out all the stops to meets the needs of every client.”
Customer service is always a top priority, and Jane’s warmth and friendly professionalism has brought her many returning clients over the years. Thanks to her savvy business acumen, she has created an estate agency that is proactive and forward thinking, widely regarded to be among the leading coastal agencies in the South West.
Jane Taylor and her team believe that North Devon is a very special place to own property, to live and to visit. Investors are increasingly realising this too.
