The seeds for Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations were planted years ago when the three of us, Jodi Taylor Refosco, Joe Refosco, and Chad Taylor, were in our teens and early twenties. All three of us worked in the vacation rental and hospitality industries right here in Deep Creek Lake. That experience gave us a good understanding the importance of customer service, time management and service. We were waiters, restaurant managers, reservationists, hot tub cleaners, housekeepers, technical support, marketing specialists, owner representatives, maintenance personnel and managers. We were where the tire meets the road, as they say.
In 2008, we launched Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations with one property. That year, we still were all of the above and more – we were new as a company but well-seasoned in property management. Presently we manage over 220 homes and serve another 75 non-rental homes with the help of our experienced staff. More than half of them were trained by us in the past and most have worked 5-15 years in vacation rentals. We are a family-run business, and our staff has been an integral part of building a reputation of excellence.
In 2014, we were happy to announce another milestone –Jay Ferguson, a well-known area real estate agent with over 14 years of experience selling in the Deep Creek area and Garrett County, became a co-owner of our new real estate sales division. He shares our passion for the area and was raised right here in Garrett County. He understands what makes this area so appealing, so it’s easy for him to sell his "hometown”. He is responsible for selling over $75 million of prime real estate during his career.
In 2016, Betsy Spiker Holcomb chose to join us as co-owner of the real estate division. As a top-producing area agent and eleventh generation Garrett County native, her extensive knowledge of the local inventory of homes and community resources allows her to provide a superior level of information to both native residents and long distance clients. The combination of her real estate expertise and the cutting-edge technology and marketing that Taylor-Made is known for will benefit Deep Creek Lake area buyers and sellers for years to come.
As always, your concerns are our main concern, and we look forward to working with you whether your needs be the renting of your property, buying of a property or selling of your property. We are here to serve you.
Jodi, Joe, Chad, Jay, and Betsy
