About Drew

Hi, Thank you for checking out my bio! I have been a resident of the Birmingham/Hoover area all of my life. Growing up in Birmingham was a fantastic experience. After attending Shades Mountain Christian School I attended Samford University in Homewood, AL. At Samford I majored in Business Management/Finance which have given me invaluable tools I use everyday in Real Estate. I entered the Real Estate industry in 2005 when I teamed up with my Mother Dianne Taylor (a 35 year Real Estate Veteran) to form Team Taylor. Since forming Team Taylor in 2005 we have consistently grown our market share and have built our team to one of the Top RE/MAX Teams in Alabama and have now established our team as the #1 RE/MAX team in Birmingham 4 years in a row! As our Team Leader I oversee the day to day operations by working closely with our marketing/closing coordinator Morgan Ellett and our exclusive buyer Representatives Josh Ehmke, Michael Hartman, Karen Scott, Andrew Fair, Matt Williams, and Nate Boitano to insure that we are giving our customers the best possible service on a daily basis. For our team it is not about just selling houses but helping guide families through one of the most important decision making processes they will ever go through.
