Betsy is a member of Kevin Grolig’s team and I can assure you that you will not find a better team in this area (trust me – I have moved 5 times in the 9 years I have lived here in Maryland). Yes, I was military and between duty stations, transitions to civilian life and changes in our circumstances – it’s been a ride.) The hardest part of purchasing a home is not the actual purchase and paperwork aspect, it’s the searching for a house portion and the time it takes that drives most people bonkers. At times, you will feel as if you are the one imposing on your realtor or you will begin to settle for what you see when the search becomes long and arduous. At some point, you will begin to believe that your dream house is simply impossible to find and relegate to the thought that it’s not meant to be. Here’s what you need to know about Betsy – she won’t let you settle on substandard houses because the search takes time, there is no pressure to “hurry up and choose” because you are 4 hours into your day 20 search due to your own employment schedule conflicts and none of them are “it” (Betsy works with your schedule not hers) and she will investigate the properties you have inquired on BEFORE scheduling a visit to ensure YOUR time is not wasted. Who does that anymore? Betsy keeps diligent tabs on the specifics you have expressed are “must haves” in searching for your dream home and is honest and transparent with every property shown. If there is EVER a time Betsy is not available, Kevin will step in which shows amazing teamwork, unwavering customer service and both parties are super responsive. My husband and I started our search on a whim back in July in an effort to get out of renting since we are newlyweds and ended up finding and purchasing our home in the Frederick/Middletown area (which wasn’t typically one of Betsy’s areas – another above and beyond move for her) and had the amazing experience of closing on our dream house this last week. If you are looking for the team that can COMFORTABLY, ASSURINGLY and PROFESSIONALLY (with the most awesome customer service skills ever) get you through the housing journey, search no further! Thank you Betsy for your patience, your guidance, your unfailing support to find our dream house and your unwavering support to our schedules and my son’s medical schedules. You will forever remain in our prayers and our hearts.
Betsy is simply amazing – she produces great results! We have worked with Betsy for our buying as well as selling needs. During buying, we were looking for a single family home with very specific requirements, and Betsy helped us find it for exactly the right price! Betsy has been extremely helpful and responsive to our needs. She was available for the showings whenever we requested, and we are extremely thankful for that. For selling, with Betsy’s wonderful work, our town home went under contract within a week after listing!! The ads and all the materials, listings were highly professional and the rates reasonable. We also were very impressed with her quick responses to all texts and emails, regardless of the time of day. Betsy is very honest, and we relied on her feedback, and expert judgment several times during the process. She handled our questions and concerns cheerfully and confidently, and we were really glad that she was on our team :) We highly recommend Betsy for all real estate needs!
She advised us on what improvements we needed to make to the property to secure the best price. We made those improvements and when we listed the property we received several offers which resulted in a bidding war. We had a contract over asking price within a week. We then ran into unexpected issues and Betsy worked tirelessly behind the scenes, communicating with the buyer’s agent, the buyer’s lender and the property appraisers that were involved. She handled the details without worrying us, ensuring that we closed the deal
After spending sometime to buy our desired property, we realize now that we have made the best decision to work with her. She understands your personal needs,the local market and the overall process to win a contract. The biggest asset is her prompt response to your questions and clarifications.I would strongly recommend to hire Betsy.
Betsy is the real deal. She cares about her clients and has real estate expertise. Buying and selling my home was her priority as she was available on weekends, evenings and holidays. She expertly guided me through the selling/buying process, keeping me informed every step of the way. She handled my sale professionally, swiftly and with discretion. She was my outspoken advocate throughout my purchase ensuring my home met my unique family’s needs. Betsy answered every question I had with the knowledge of a top subject matter expert. Betsy went above and beyond to ensure my real estate needs were not only met, but unfolded better than I could have imaged in a timeline that exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Betsy Taylor if you are looking to buy or sell a home.
She gave me excellent advice about staging my home and then proceeded to sell it in less than a week. She walked me through all the steps of the sale and made sure all my questions were answered regardless of when I called or e-mailed her. Betsy was a terrific advocate on my behalf with the sellers of the home I purchased. She was with me every step of the way and it made a huge difference for me as both a seller and a buyer. Her knowledge and expertise of real estate are impressive. I highly recommend her as both a buyer and seller agent.
You cannot go wrong with deciding to use Betsy as your listing agent! She is dedicated to you as her client and is always available to respond to questions. We were also impressed with how she was not only responsive to our needs but also how she followed up with prospective purchasers. We could also tell she truly cared about us and made sure everything was in order from the pre-listing process all the way through closing (and beyond). She was great all around!
Betsy always responded quickly to every text and e-mail. She is cheerful, positive, pleasant, and optimistic, as well as experienced, knowledgeable and connected with excellent contractors. Betsy Taylor provided guidance and assistance and did everything she possibly could to help us prepare our home for sale, and then through listing to a successful sale. We are grateful for her patience and professionalism.

She gave us great advice through the process on preparing our home to sell, choosing the right time and price to list, and even helped arrange a home stager and some last minute work on the home for us. Her negotiations on both contracts were financially beneficial to us, which we definitely appreciated! In looking for our home to purchase, Betsy was very proactive in identifying properties that fit our criteria and networking with other agents in our area. The whole Kevin Grolig team were great to work with through it all. They are a very organized group and will keep you on top of all parts of the process by providing timelines, email reminders, and phone calls so that you don’t miss anything. By working with Betsy, and we were able to have our house under contract after one weekend, and into a house that we love just 1.5 months later!
She is hard working, possesses a positive attitude, and is a go getter at all times during your search for a new house. She is on top of her game when it comes to Real Estate in this market. She knows the area well, knows the neighborhoods, and works with you each minute on finding your dream house. She readily answered all of our questions and concerns (no matter how naive). She was a wealth of advice, but never pushed my wife and I. Betsy's knowledge, experience and local expertise cannot be duplicated. We are thankful to have found her and we are highly recommending her to everyone we know.
As this was our first time buying a house, we had no idea how the process would work and had many questions. We were also on a very tight timeline (needed to find a house in less than a month!) We looked at Betsy’s website, saw what we liked and decided to set up a consultation meeting. The first time we met Betsy, we were very impressed by her charismatic personality, her patience in answering every single question and her wealth of knowledge overall. We didn’t feel pressured by her and felt like she would really look out for our bests interests. She also assured us we would find a house within our budget and short timeframe. We decided to sign a contract that same day and that’s when our relationship began. Within days Betsy was able to schedule multiple showings of houses we liked online. She was typically able to get us into the houses within 24 hours. She would show us 2-3 houses at any given time, gather our feedback and further narrow the search from there. There was one house in particular that looked promising online and had just listed that very same day. Betsy was able to schedule a showing the following day. We really liked the house and wanted to see it again the next day, and Betsy was able to schedule a second showing right away. We decided to make an offer that night and Betsy helped us write the contract. As it turns out, Betsy knew the listing agent from prior work and learned that there were three offers on the house already. Betsy advised us to make a strong offer, so we did - we put our one and only offer. The seller would be deciding the next day. On the next day, we learned that another buyer had made the exact same offer but that the seller accepted our offer instead. We wanted to close within 30 days and Betsy recommended a settlement agent she trusted would make that happen - and they did. We closed on the house just a few weeks later. Betsy was extremely professional throughout the whole process, made sure we understood everything we were signing and did not pressure us into anything. We recommend her with the highest regard to anyone looking for a real estate agent. She’s definitely someone who not only knows what she’s doing but that loves what she does!
