I have been associated with Marion Taylor in a professional capacity since 2012 and I have worked closely with her on a number of property transactions.
Marion has proved herself to be an excellent broker who has a genuine interest in the welfare of her clients, be they buyers or sellers. Her contracts are always well thought out and drafted and her after sales service is excellent.
Marion's knowledge of the property market in Camps Bay and the Atlantic Seaboard of Cape Town is comprehensive and she regularly sends updates to her client base to keep them informed of movement and trends.
Marion has always conducted herself with the utmost integrity and honesty and I would have no hesitation in recommending her as an agent to both buyers and sellers of property in the Atlantic
Seaboard area of Cape Town, especially Camps Bay.

I confirm that I have had dealings on a professional level with Marion Taylor of Marion Taylor Properties in Camps Bay. I have found her to be efficient and effective, to the extent that, on one occasion, to my knowledge, she managed to obtain an offer from a financially sound purchaser that was more than the asking price of the property being sold by my client.
Her follow-up service once the sale is concluded is excellent.

The writer worked with Mrs Marion Taylor in respect of a large property transaction in Camps Bay, Western Cape in September 2015. Mrs Taylor impressed the writer with a positive attitude and immediate action in terms of private viewings and sales activity. Her determination to find a suitable buyer resulted in a sale being concluded within a period of less than 2 ½ months from the point of first contact with the writer. There was no haggling about the price as she was able to ensure that the buyer made his best offer the first time. The entire transaction proceeded smoothly and transfer was registered without delay.
Given the fact that the services were rendered on a non-exclusive mandate, the level of service was well beyond expectation and we have no hesitation in recommending Marion Taylor Properties to any potential seller of immovable property.

I wanted to formally thank you for the work you did in finding us our dream property at 7 The Meadows, Camps Bay. It was a long and hard journey to find the right spot, especially given our very specific requirements and the shortage of stock on the market.

Marion started as Camps Bay-focused property agent shortly before we first met, then working for
Goldin, then starting Engel and Volkels franchise, before operating under her own name.
Over these past 20 years, Marion has assisted my family with keen and comprehensive re-valuations on our various Camps Bay properties.
In 2005, Marion assisted me at short notice to source and secure a nearby apartment for my Son's mother, which apartment she assisted us re-sell in 2013 for the full asking price, which too was a record price for that Geneva Drive apartment block.
From 2008 until 2014 Marion assisted my Mother revalue her Camps Bay property, which was too not only sold on the basis of her full valuation, but which provided my Mother with a +20% better return than other local agents offered.

I Charmian Bartley represented the seller of 30 Flskaal Road Camps Bay.
I have known Marion Taylor from Marion Taylor properties a couple of years and made the right choice to ask her to sell the property, I always found her an honourable person with a sense of trust worthiness. She handled the selling of the property in a very discreet professional manner. She worked around times that was convenient to me and always let me know well in advance when to expect any potential buyers.
I would be happy to give Marion Taylor Properties my highest recommendation for anyone wanting to sell their property.
I employed the services of Marion Taylor Properties to sell my house at the above address.
Marion Taylor herself took on the task, and within several months managed to sell my house for me at a price with which I was very pleased.
But Marion did much more than just bring the sale to a satisfactory conclusion for me. She worked tirelessly and at all hours, ultimately persuading the buyers of the property that this was a fair deal for all parties concerned. She is at all times honest and frank and yet always manages to conduct business in a calm and professional way.
I therefore have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Marion Taylor Properties as the agency of choice in the selling or purchasing of property.
