Thank you, Cheryl, for choosing Taylor Realty Associates,

John Rawdin, Realtor with the Russ Taylor Team


John was very helpful and flexible with our schedule as we were not living in the area that we were purchasing a home in. From the start he was willing to do anything to find the right home for us. I felt like I could trust his advice and judgement as a first-time home buyer. I would highly recommend John as a realtor!
John is an amazing person, professionally and personally. He has helped me buy and sell one house and buy another. Each interaction with him has been a more than pleasant one with him. He took great care of us and will take great care of you too!” 
While living 2.5 hours from the Champaign area, we were able through John to have our future home analyzed for the roof , furnace, potential mold, potential remodeling the bathroom, and other things that gave us confidence that this was the home we wanted. John went beyond what we expected from a realtor.” 

I'd love to chat with you
