" Very Happy Customer "

After having our house for sale for over 6 months and still no sale we decided to Mel and Rhett a go at Taylor’s for a one month period and then go to auction. We had to rent it back out again if this failed. Happy to say it sold at auction. These guys were a pleasure to work with and their communication skill were second to none, letting us know every bit of interest, every open home and who turned up and what they were doing every step of the way. Highly recommended. Daniel (Vendor) Nov 2021


" Repeat Business "

When I made the choice to sell I only every had one person in mind. The lady that sold me the house in first place. Mel had witnessed the love I had put into the home and I knew that’s she would be the best to showcase what was on offer. True to form it was a quick sale that ticked all my boxes and I couldn’t be happier. Mel always has my vote of confidence Alana Fors (Vendor) Apr 2022

" Melinda Was A Great Agent To Work With "

Melinda and the TAYLORS team were a great team to work with.  I had been looking at homes with them for just over a year, they listened to my wants and suggested properties that would suit my needs.  Melinda always made sure to call me when she had a property that met my description.  I would recommend anyone either looking to buy a house and sell a house to contact her and the team, as they go above and beyond to assist.


" Above & Beyond "

We feel Mel went above and beyond to help with he sale of our property we had some trying times and Mel dealt with each issue professionally and with care. Absolutely Brillant agent!

" I Found Mel's Professional Manner To Be Exc "

My whole experience with Mel was honestly a delight.  Her professionalism, honesty and empathy shone as bright as a light.  It probably wasn't the smoothest ending upon settlement date, due to circumstances out of everyone's control with movers.  Mel stepped up and took control and got everything sorted in record time to facilitate handover.  Her down to earth approach was refreshing and an absolute delight to have met her.  I highly recommend Mel and all the team at Taylors Property Specialists.


" Melinda is professional, personable & never gave up on finding my parents their perfect home "

My parents made the scary mmove from their house of 45 years in Vic and were looking for their dream home in the Whitsundays and while every other estate agent showed my parents one or two homes to buy then literally they disappeared, Mel stuck by their side from start to finish.  Mel listened to what they were after in a house and she delivered this in every home she showed them.  Her determination, constant contact and will to find them their dream home came through.  They couldnt be more happy with their new home....having all the features they asked for and more. When asked who they bought the home through we couldnt be more proud and confident in telling them as also recommeding Mel.  She was not only our agent, she also became our friend.  We hand down would recommend Mel & Taylors Property Specialists to anyone and everyone..  Thanks Mel and Rob for making the process so professional with no stress!


" Awesome Agent "

Melinda is a one of a kind sales agent, she makes you feel so relaxed through the whole process very helpful and caring agent. Would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to purchase or sell their property.


" Fantastic Agent "

Excellent service, very professional.  Melinda made us feel so at ease, very friendly.  Nothing was a trouble and great communication!


" Congratulations Taylors & Mel Butcher "

Your hard work and dedication to your clients Mel will always be appreciated. One of the most enthusiastic agents I have had the pleasure dealing with. Good luck with your new venture.
