Taylor Bowen, CCIM

Taylor Bowen is a licensed real estate associate broker who has spent more than a decade assessing and listing valuable commercial property on behalf of landlords, property owners, and sellers in Hagerstown, Maryland. Taylor recognizes the critical value of commercial properties in the overall health of a community, and he has seen first-hand the cascading benefits of successful commercial transactions.

Whether listing and filling a shopping center whose better days seem to be behind it or filling office spaces in a brand new development, Taylor applies his knowledge and negotiation skills to fill every vacancy. That growth-oriented mindset empowers the property owners to reinvest in their community and turns buildings with potential into buildings with purpose.

In 2015, Taylor was given the CoStar Power Broker Award for retail leasing transactions for the Washington DC market area, and in 2016, he was selected for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices President’s Circle Award for Sales Volume.

Taylor has been ranked as one of the top Commercial Real Estate Agents in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network since 2018, landing in the top 5 for 3 out of the last 4 consecutive years. He has also achieved Chairman’s Circle level awards for the past 5 years and continues to maintain that level of productivity through 2022. In 2021, Taylor also earned his Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation, marking him as a commercial real estate expert.
