The Russ Taylor Team




Russ Taylor, with over 50 years of experience in the real estate industry, has dedicated his career to helping buyers and sellers navigate the complexities of the housing market. Russ is a lifelong resident of Champaign County and a graduate of Mahomet-Seymour High School. He attended Taylor University and graduated from University of Illinois. Russ brings a deep understanding of the local community to his work.

Throughout his career, Russ has been committed to providing personalized service to his clients, understanding that his role goes beyond just selling houses—it's about helping people find their dream homes and achieve their real estate goals.

Outside of real estate, Russ enjoys spending time with his wife of 48 years, Charlene, and their two sons, daughter-in-law and four grandsons. His hobbies and interests include bird dogs, reading, hunting, and riding Harley Davidson motorcycles. He is also actively involved in his church and has served as a mentor in local schools.

Russ's dedication to his clients and his outstanding contributions to the real estate industry have earned him numerous accolades, including the CCAR's 2009 Realtor of the Year award, as well as recognition in the RE/MAX Hall of Fame, Chairman's Club, and Lifetime Achievement Awards.

In 2023, Russ, along with his brother Nick, founded Taylor Realty Associates, an independently owned and managed real estate brokerage, committed to providing exemplary service and expertise to clients within a 30-mile radius of the Champaign-Urbana, Illinois area.
