Without a doubt, I’m one of the luckiest sellers in Sarasota history. Working with Moriah and her team was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. Since I knew this would be the most expensive listing in Downtown Sarasota history, I wanted to go with not only the most prestigious brand in the city, but also the best team.
Moriah and Valerie were fantastic throughout every step of the process about communicating both the status of the listing and what was going on in the market. Their constant knowledge of the numbers and stats managed a lot of my apprehension about the volatility of the capital markets. They worked diligently to pre-screen prospects so that showings were specific to serious, qualified buyers. Ultimately, Moriah’s work achieved the most expensive sale in Downtown Sarasota’s history and I couldn’t be more impressed and happy with the outcome.

My purchase at the Mark began with a deposit in 2018, but because of a delayed closing and the pandemic, I wasn’t able to I wasn’t able to inspect the unit personally until May of 2021. Let’s just say, my thoughts about things had changed after such a long time, and I began to think of selling. I received several postcards from realtors weekly, and I called a few. Sarasota was a very hot market with a dearth of listings.
Moriah Taliaferro kept in touch diligently. When I decided to sell, she suggested a price that was higher than I had anticipated. I was dubious, but on the other hand I had followed Moriah’s real estate blog and was impressed with her industry, intelligence, and persistence. As I told her directly, she impressed me as someone who was committed to her industry and clients. It was obvious that she took her work seriously.
I was a realtor at one point in my life, but since I wasn’t on the spot in Sarasota, I took Moriah at her word and we priced the apartment at what I thought was a pretty ambitious price. It sold in days, at an even higher price. Moriah knew the market, she handled the offers well, and she kept in touch at every stage. I was lucky to have her as my selling agent and I can recommend her without reservation. You will be glad to have her on your side and you can absolutely rely on her advice and good judgement.
Moriah represented us during our first home buying experience and we truly cannot recommend her enough. She is so responsive, extremely attentive and she very quickly got to know exactly what we liked and needed. There isn’t a time of day where she would not provide her support, insight, help or simply just a listening ear. Her knowledge and negotiation skills are unmatched.
We are SO very thankful for her! She is one of a kind professional.

We have worked with a number of real estate agents over many decades. We can say with confidence that Moriah Taliaferro sets a new standard for thoroughness and excellence. She was attentive and responsive from our earliest inquiry about the property that had caught our eye, providing us with every detail we requested and being communicative throughout the entire process. She was of tremendous assistance in advising us when we were ready to make an offer and protected our interests as she helped us pursue an advantageous transaction. She was communicative during the entire process to ensure everyone was up-to-date and all questions were answered.
We appreciated her efficiency and professionalism—and felt especially fortunate to be working with such an amiable and kind-hearted person. Moriah went out of her way to take care of us; we are thrilled to have purchased our new home and grateful for her strong role in helping to make it happen. We would highly recommend her to other potential clients.

My husband and I are grateful we chose Moriah Taliaferro to sell our Longboat Key home. Her professionalism, extensive knowledge of the local real estate market, and strong work ethic were apparent from the start. She created a comprehensive marketing plan to sell our condominium and kept us well informed throughout the process. A buyer was quickly identified and Moriah negotiated with them to obtain a sales price that satisfied both the buyer and us. Moriah was a pleasure to work with, right from the start, and we could not be more pleased with the outcome. Thank you Moriah!

My husband and I feel enormously fortunate to have found Moriah! She helped us to purchase two condos in recent months. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable and professional, but she is willing to go above and beyond to make the process of buying real estate a smooth one. She typically responds immediately to texts, emails, and phone calls, and she is able to anticipate and avert potential bumps in the road. While Moriah is straightforward, she is also very personable; she worked well with everyone in the purchase process. We will most definitely use her services in the future, and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the Sarasota area.

Moriah was extremely helpful in our search for property in Sarasota. She took the time to walk us through the neighborhoods of Sarasota and to show us representative properties in several of the locations, all of this was before we finalized our decision to relocate to Sarasota.
Most importantly, as we entered into negotiations to purchase a property, Moriah effectively represented our interest and gave us excellent suggestions and advice. We highly recommend Moriah to anyone contemplating a real estate transaction in the Sarasota area. We would not hesitate to utilize her services again.

Moriah sets a new standard for realtors. She is extremely responsive, detail oriented, efficient with our time, and extremely pleasant. She is well respected by the community because of her depth of knowledge in the very competitive Sarasota market. She worked beautifully with the listing agent and lawyer and represented our interests well in negotiating the deal and managing the process. We were new to the Sarasota area and having a stellar agent on our side made the search and transaction seamless and pleasant. She deserves every bit of five stars.

Great job! As soon as we listed our property with Moriah, she had multiple videos created the next day and began marketing it. The videos were very professional and mentioned all the advantages of the property. The ad exposure on the web, advertising journals and newspapers provided us great coverage to potential buyers. Moriah and her office were always very responsive and provided sound advice as we worked through the listing and selling process.
