Taylor Team Information
Lance was born in the small lake town of Mountain Home in Northern Arkansas and graduated from the University of Arkansas (Go Hogs!). Lance comes from a long line of real estate professionals. His grandfather started his own brokerage in 1968 and his father took over in 1981. Lance also has 2 brothers who are top producing agents for Keller Williams Realty in Northwest Arkansas. He worked as a buyer’s agent in college while studying finance and engineering and was first licensed in real estate at the young age of 18. His energy, enthusiasm, and hard work combined with his extensive knowledge and background in the industry make him a viable asset to the Taylor Team. Lance briefly left the real estate industry to pursue his other passion of product development and LED lighting design. He traveled to Asia and worked with manufacturing partners and distributors to bring energy efficient lighting technology to the United States and other countries. Lance moved to the North Dallas area in 2009 to find a better life for his family, with two young daughters who always keep him busy when he’s not selling.
Lance feels that his place on the Taylor Team is to provide the highest level of service to all his clients, thus raising the bar in terms of service and positive experiences. “Great service in any industry is a challenge to find. My goal is to bring a concierge level of service to my clients in the North Dallas area.” Lance specializes in working with first-time home buyers and sellers, investors, and luxury buyers and sellers.
Outside of working, Lance spends time with his wife Christie and their two daughters and is passionate about playing music, including keyboard, guitar, and harmonica. He is also an avid snow skier, wakeboarder, and scuba diver. In addition, Lance can be found playing ping pong, cornhole, or finding new adventures to travel on. Lance enjoys being very involved in his church in McKinney.
Christie was born in Lexington, KY but lived in Ohio, Arkansas, Tennessee and even as far away as Buenos Aires, Argentina when she was young. It wasn’t until she moved to Texas in 2009, though, that she felt a connection and wanted to put down roots…she credits Texas with stealing her heart.
“Moving so much growing up taught me a lot about adapting to different situations, cultures and circumstances…I feel fortunate that I was pushed at a young age to be happy and thrive even when I am out of my comfort zone.” She goes on to say, “I love the Dallas area because I feel like it is a huge melting pot of people from all over the world. However, it still carries that southern small town charm in its DNA. Even though our area has seen tremendous growth and is still growing rapidly, people still take the time to wave at their neighbors and offer a helping hand…I just love that that is who our city is!”
Christie has been a licensed real estate agent since 2012 and has since sold multi-millions in the DFW area. Christie has extensive knowledge in selling and buying residential properties including luxury, first-time homebuyers, condo/townhomes, and everything in between. Christie says “Real estate for me is SO much about the people I have the opportunity to work with, and that is why I just love what I do! I am blessed to help families get into the home where their memories are made or help them move on from their current home to the next journey in their life. I mean, what could be cooler than that? I’m just so thankful!”
In her spare time Christie enjoys spending time with her two daughters and husband Lance, singing on the worship team at her church, traveling to anywhere that has an ocean and reading inspirational/motivational books.
