Alan Taylor

Alan Taylor is one of the highest producing real estate agents in Los Angeles, specializing in high end real estate in the San Fernando Valley.  A 4th generation resident of the San Fernando Valley, Alan knows all of the characteristics of its many diverse neighborhoods, making him the perfect Realtor for both buyers and sellers alike.

His dedication to exceeding his client’s expectations has placed him among the top 2% of agents nationwide for production, making him one of the most sought after listing agents in the San Fernando Valley.  With his strong ties to the community, Alan’s efforts have been widely recognized by local resident groups, law enforcement and the city council for his work towards neighborhood advocacy.  Having given workshops and industry seminars on the role of technology and marketing your home on-line, Alan has the resources to market homes locally, nationally and globally.

Alan’s drive to succeed in Real Estate was influenced by his father, a well-respected Realtor who opened and managed the first Jon Douglas office in The Valley in 1977.  Additionally, his Aunt and John Aaroe were once partners selling some of LA’s most expensive Real Estate to famous actors, entertainers and captains of industry.

A seasoned Real Estate professional, Alan uses his previous experience as a Loan Officer to help give his clients a unique perspective when it comes to the overall process of a real estate transaction.  This in depth knowledge allows Alan to ensure a smooth process from start to finish in every transaction.

Alan obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, Marketing from the College of Business and Economics at California State University Northridge.

The Most Technically Advanced & Comprehensive Marketing Plan…  Alan’s marketing plan is the most cutting-edge, extensive system available today.  His syndication platform funnels your listing to more real estate websites than other company.  His extensive social media presence and search engine optimization expertise ensure your home is seen by the largest audience.  And he offers the highest-end photography and presentation tools to display your home in the best light.  No one markets your home wider or smarter than Alan.

A Rich Network of Connections…  Relationships are vital to getting deals done.  As a second-generation realtor whose family has sold real estate in the Valley and the Westside for over 40 years combined, Alan has cultivated deep-rooted relationships across Los Angeles’ brokerage community. His family has represented the most affluent individuals including captains of industry, and actors and entertainers including Elvis Presley. Most agents in the Valley and Westside have worked for either Alan’s father or John Aaroe at some time. This confers a tremendous advantage to sellers as Alan gets his listings in front of more agents and has the inside track on competing listings. 

Extensive Localized Knowledge…  Alan sells the area better than anyone because he knows the area better than anyone.  As a 4th generation resident of Sherman Oaks, he is intimately familiar with the distinctiveness of each Valley neighborhood and knows every street, restaurant, park, school and place of interest.  He is constantly immersed in the market, staying up-to-date on comparable properties to effectively price and position your home.  And with his tremendous skill for conveying each area’s greatness, Alan generates the interest and excitement that gets your house sold.

Lending Expertise…  Alan’s clients benefit from a distinct advantage:  A mortgage broker in his previous life, Alan has a deep understanding of the lending environment, so he can help walk you through the process in ways most realtors can’t.  What’s more, when so many unqualified buyers waste precious time, Alan helps sellers to navigate and manage risk when evaluating offers, and he works closely with buyers’ lenders to deliver only well-qualified buyers who will actually close.
