Denver has been my home since I moved here from Kansas in 2000 after graduating college. After four years as a Civil Engineer, I transitioned my career to Real Estate because it fits my outgoing personality and skill in connecting with people.
My #1 goal is to get to know my clients personally to help them make the best real estate decisions possible based on their unique needs and tastes. I do this by listening, remaining patient, and using my expert knowledge of Denver's neighborhoods and market conditions. Denver is one of the fastest growing cities in the country, and I love sharing my knowledge of this community with both seasoned buyers and first time purchasers.
When I'm not helping my clients you can find me hiking with my golden retriever Van, skiing A-Basin alongside my wife and kids, or taking in Denver's amazing live music scene.
"My experience with Porchlight Real Estate, and specifically Stephen Taylor, was exceptional. The previous year I attempted to sell my house with a different group which did not go well, needless to say I was hesitant to re-start the process. However after discussions with Stephen I felt completely reassured I had chosen the best agent to represent me and my listing. Porchlight offers a number of services which made the process easier than I had imagined; from the staging of my house to the open houses, to the advertising of my property I couldn"t have been happier. When it came time to buy another property, this process went just as well as selling. The database of properties for sale (created by Porchlight) that was catered to what I was looking for in a new home was wonderful, and I am happy to say that within a week or two of being under contract to sell my house I was already under contract to purchase another home! I cannot speak highly enough of Stephen and would 100% recommend him and Porchlight to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
"I had a great experience working with Stephen Taylor during my home purchase. Stephen has great knowledge of the Denver real estate market and home values. As a trusted advisor, Stephen's help was vital in guiding me through the inns and outs of the purchase process and all of the various technical details that came up during the contract. Stephen also has great response time and his communication is excellent. I would email him in the afternoon and we would be looking at the place a few hours later. Stephen clearly loves what he does for a living and I am confident anyone who uses his services, whether as a purchaser or seller, will be happy. Whenever I find myself in the market again, Stephen will be the first person I call."
"Dealing in real estate really isn’t all just location. What about how to make choices within a neighborhood? What about the psychology of not just the transaction but other related consequences? What about considerations for the moving process, which is near the top of the list of most stressful events in life? Those are the considerations that to us made a difference in who we chose to guide us in not only selling our house but finding our next home. PorchLight served us well, but clearly, it is the agent behind the company, not vice versa that is the key to success.
Stephen Taylor demonstrated valuable experience and expertise, up-to-date market savvy, timely responses and great skill at managing the whole experience to a successful conclusion. From start to finish. And it wasn’t just problem solving but his creative solutions and extremely helpful referrals of other post-move resources that proved so helpful.
We would highly recommend Stephen to anyone, especially those with a high-end property. But regardless, we have great confidence that if Stephen takes on your situation, his diligent efforts should provide a satisfying experience against reasonable expectations (which he was also good at helping us set). Thanks Stephen! A+"
"This is a huge thank you for excellent job you and PorchLight did for us recently on the sale of our two homes. You went the extra mile both times to make the transactions smooth and easy. You anticipated all of the potential problems and took care of them before they became problems. We will recommend you and PorchLight any time we can."

"Stephen was patient and never pushed us to make a decision if it wasn't 100% right for us. Some realtors are only in it for themselves, not Stephen, his #1 priority is the client. Having the online website to verify documents, deadlines, and additional information regarding the purchase of our home was very helpful. The frequent and continuous communication and updates made us feel very well taken care of. Without a doubt, I would encourage anyone whether friend or stranger, to let Stephen Taylor assist them not only with the sale or purchase of a home but to allow him to provide his expertise in the market and real estate world. He is exceptional from start to finish, and beyond. 10/10"

"My husband and I just happened to meet Stephen at an open house and hired him to help us in buying our first home. I cannot say enough good things about Stephen Taylor. He was extremely prompt in returning our calls, and even with our difficult schedule would always work us in to see a home. It was a tough market to be a buyer, with low inventory, but Stephen worked extra hard to get us seeing homes and making offers on ones we really wanted to go for. He was extremely patient with us and I would recommend Stephen Taylor to absolutely anyone who is buying or selling."
"Stephen Taylor did a phenomenal job selling my house and finding me a new one. He was very patient and explained each step of the process in a clear concise way. He went above and beyond in helping to get the house ready to put on the market and making sure I was comfortable with all of the decisions."
"As a first time home buyer, I am so glad I worked with Stephen Taylor on finding the perfect home. He was extremely knowledgeable and went above and beyond what I'd expect from a realtor. He was very responsive, and flexible with setting up showings around my hectic work and travel schedules. The entire process would've been incredibly difficult without his assistance and advice. I'd definitely recommend Stephen and PorchLight to any of my friends and family in the future!"
"Stephen made a stressful time for us go extremely smooth. He even communicated with and lined up contractors to finish up work prior to our house closing. Everything was done professionally and very timely. He knew when he needed to speak with us over the phone or in person, and when he could communicate via text. He did a great job all around."
"Stephen Taylor was the best realtor I have ever dealt with. He always made sure he was available if a property came on the market that I wanted to see at any time. He was not like some realtors who are pushy and require you sign a Right To Buy contract immediately, which says a lot about him. I would recommend Stephen to anyone looking to buy a house in this crazy Denver market."
"We had to sell our house and used Stephen Taylor with PorchLight as our agent. Stephen had done a fantastic job when we bought this house years ago, so we automatically used him for the sale. During the sale of the house the negotiations were very tricky and I was glad Stephen was representing me. At the end of the day we were successful at selling our property at a good price. Well done PorchLight, well done Stephen Taylor."
