About Our Real Estate Sales Team

Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations was founded in 2008 with just one home by Jodi Taylor Refosco, Joe Refosco, and Chad Taylor. With backgrounds in the vacation rental and hospitality industries right here in Deep Creek Lake, they developed a good understanding the importance of customer service, time management and service. They were servers, restaurant managers, reservationists, hot tub cleaners, housekeepers, technical support, marketing specialists, owner representatives, maintenance personnel and managers. They were where the tire meets the road, as they say.

Today, Taylor-Made manages over 395 homes and serve another 145 non-rental homes with the help of an experienced staff - many of whom have worked in the industry five, ten, even twenty years! It is a family-run business, and the team has been an integral part of building a reputation of excellence.


In 2014, a partnership with Jay Ferguson, a well-known area real estate agent, was formed. He became a co-owner of the Taylor-Made Deep Creek real estate sales division. With over sixteen years of experience selling Garrett County and Deep Creek Lake real estate, he shares our passion for the area and was raised right here in Oakland. He has sold well over $100 million of real estate during his career. He is also currently the Broker of record. You can learn more about Jay and see all his Deep Creek Lake homes for sale and greater Garrett county real estate at www.ilovedeepcreek.com.

Early in 2016, Betsy Spiker Holcomb chose to join 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.

Through the acquisition of Long & Foster's Deep Creek Lake Branch in August 2016 the real estate team grew by leaps and bounds – almost overnight! During 2017, they were responsible for over $80 million in Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County real estate transactions.

In June of 2018, seventeen new agents joined the real estate division. Many of the new team members are accomplished agents with decades of experience in Deep Creek Lake real estate.

Taylor-Made's real estate philosophy centers around the belief that technology, coupled with a collaborative team, can build a powerful business that thrives over the long haul. The company's independent agents are encouraged to share resources to boost overall productivity and client satisfaction. With an in-house staff dedicated to strategic marketing, sales agents have access to services that include professional photography and videography, 3D tours and drone photography along with aggressive email and social media marketing.

By leveraging a strong knowledge base, years of experience in the local market and cutting-edge technology, experiences for both agents and clients will continue to soar moving forward.
