Taylor Rittgers

Taylor is our Escrow Transaction Coordinator.  A native San Diegan, has grown up around the real estate world with family members working in a variety of different fields within the industry. This valuable exposure helped pave the way for Taylor, who at the age of 18, became a Transaction Coordinator Assistant.

In less than two years, Taylor grew from an assistant to the head of her transaction department. Shortly after, she decided it was time to go out on her own as an Independent Transaction Coordinator. Throughout Taylor’s 5+ years of experience, she has learned that customer service is the #1 priority. She understands that buying or selling a home can be a very emotional and sometimes chaotic time in one’s life. It’s her mission to provide a smooth and seamless transaction, optimize technology for paperwork for the client when appropriate or desired, and to be an available and reliable resource for her agents and their clients. She prides herself on being knowledgeable, courteous, and honest.
