We were married on December 20, 2008 and God has blessed us with 2 wonderful boys!

About Hart

I graduated in 2007 from USC with a major in History and minor in Religion. Upon graduation, I worked at a church until 2009 when I left to help Charlie Mather begin The Mather Company. From 2009 to 2015 I was an employee at The Mather Company serving as Vice-President, Project Manager over flip homes and renovations, as well as President over our property management company, Mather Property Management. In 2010 I obtained my sales license and have been working with buyers and sellers ever since. In November of 2015, I went on staff in a full time role at our church, Midlands Church, where I serve as Pastor of Admin and Family Ministries. I love, and am so thankful, that there is flexibility with both of these jobs that allow me to devote the needed attention and focus so that I can do both of them! I love Jesus and spending time with my family. I also enjoy Gamecock football/basketball/baseball, the Minnesota Vikings, and playing music.

About Vanessa

I truly have a passion for real estate, design/staging homes, and enjoy greatly the opportunity to work with people in one of the most important decisions of their lives! I definitely feel like this is the best job you can ever have, and I hope my clients see that passion in how hard I work for them! I graduated in 2009 from USC with a major in Spanish and minor in Education. After graduation I taught 4th grade at Heritage Christian Academy in Lexington, SC. Our first son was born in 2010, so I focused on being a stay at home mom! In 2012, I taught 5th grade at Arrows Academy in Columbia, SC. We also fostered several children during that time. Our second son was born in 2014 and again I focused on staying home. As I began praying through what I wanted to go back to work for, I realized that all of my passions line up perfectly with real estate. I received my license in 2015 and joined my husband Hart. We formed the Traylor Team and love working for Charlie Mather at The Mather Company. When I have free time I like to sew and do DIY home projects! I love Jesus and pray that our family, business, and home are a true light for Him!

Testimonials from Our Clients

"Hart and Vanessa are incredible. They worked with us and worked hard for us. We placed the house on the market and in one day we had an interested buyer and Day three we were under contract and on our way through a smooth transition. I am so thankful for the way they cared for me and my family." -Luke S.

"Our house sold in just three weeks! I believe it was because of the research our agent, Hart Traylor, did regarding comps in our neighborhood. He advised us appropriately, and I believe our asking price was just right. Additionally, it was no time at all before our home was all over social media. All of this exposure surely contributed to our quick sell. Hart was a great realtor for us. He was professional, friendly, and reliable. He communicated with us regularly, and his responses to us were always timely. Awesome experience with The Mather Company! Highly recommend!" -Sarah L.

"The Traylor Team recently sold our home and I can't say enough about this dynamic team. They truly served our needs well, communicated clearly what we as sellers needed to know and went above and beyond to get our house sold in less than 5 weeks! They are dedicated to their clients and have their clients best interests at heart. If you are buying or selling, look no further than the Traylor team to help you with all your real estate needs." -April J.

"My husband and I bought our first house last month through Hart Traylor. We didn't know much about the process, but Hart was patient in explaining everything to us. He was also very patient with us on our first trip out to look at houses- we didn't even know what part of town we were most interested in yet, but Hart didn't mind driving us all over Lexington/Richland counties! We received honest and wise advice throughout the entire process. All our questions were answered promptly and we never felt pushed to buy a house, which we really appreciated." -Becky G.

"The Traylors have so much energy and dedication to their homes and their clients! What a great team that truly complements each other!" -Carla G.

"We recently bought a home with the help of Hart Traylor, and it was a great experience. We are first-time home buyers, so we had a lot to learn. Hart is very knowledgeable and was very helpful in the whole process of searching as well as with the paperwork. He made it very clear and easy to understand everything as we went along. We never once felt pressured to make any quick decisions, and Hart made it abundantly clear that he was here to serve us in any way he could. He was very flexible to meet us practically at a moments' notice whenever a new home would come on the market. We highly recommend Hart. He is very trustworthy and a man of integrity. We really appreciate the time and effort that he put forth to make this such a positive experience!" -Tania B.

"I bought my house through Hart Traylor at The Mather company. As a first time home buyer, I didn't even know what questions to ask. Hart walked me through the entire process, explained all of the legal terminology and the documentation. I gave him a list of my requirements and he sent me the link to my new house! We looked at a few others first, just to make sure, but he had listened to what I was looking for and he found me everything I wanted. He even worked with the neighbors to resolve some boundary questions and fence repairs which was above and beyond what I expected. I really appreciated the constant communication, he was always available when I had a question and updated me promptly whenever he heard some news. I couldn't have asked for a smoother process and I recommend Hart and The Mather Company to anyone interested in buying a house in the Columbia area!" -Elizabeth M.

"We had a really good experience with Hart and The Mather Company when we were looking for a house to rent last year, so when we decided to buy, we wanted to go with Hart again. It was attractive to us to have a local company that knows the area and that could give us more attention. Hart does a great job of letting you as the buyer lead, but will answer any question you have with respect and honesty. When I felt like I was wading into an area that I didn't understand, I knew I could ask Hart and he would be up front with me and find out the answer I needed to make a wise decision. We already had a lot in common, but it felt less like a business relationship and more like a friendship. The easiest way to say it is that we trusted Hart and he did an excellent job of helping us get a wonderful home at a great price. We are very grateful that he was our agent!" -Landon J.

"My name is Cris Diaz. My wife Carmen and I have been working on getting a new home for a while and so far our experience was not so good with other realtors. All that was changed the date we called the Mather Company and met Hart Traylor. Mr. Hart immediately went to work for us on helping achieving our goal. Among many qualities that he posses, what helped us the most was that he really care about finding what we wanted regardless the challenges and time that it took. Mr. Hart soon became more than a realtor to us, he was a friend that truly cares about other people's home searching needs. Mr. Hart was always there for us every step of the way. He solved problems that others would have consider a "deal stopper". Today we are enjoying our new home thanks to Mr. Hart and the Mather Company. You guys are the best!!!!" -Cris D.

"I really enjoyed working with Hart throughout the experience of buying my first home. He was always very helpful and had my best interest at heart. Since I was new to the process of buying a home, he was willing and available to answer my questions and explain things so I understood the process better. I would recommend him to anyone that is house hunting in the Columbia area!" -Liz D.

"In preparation for our upcoming marriage, my fiancĂ© and I were looking for our first home. In order to do this, we had the expert assistance of one of the Mather Company’s agents, Hart Traylor. His help was crucial for us in this process because he let us look for houses that we wanted to view, but he also did extensive research on homes he thought we would like after hearing our wants and budget. Even when actually viewing a house, Hart would always allow us to make our own assessments and would provide input or advice when asked but was never forceful or pushy. When there was a house that we were serious about pursuing, he would provide all of the comps and give us actual statistics to help us make our decision. He was present in every part of the process and was a major reason that we were able to close on our house at all; he was persistent with the lender and fought for us. As a result, my fiancĂ© and I were able to close on an amazing first home in a great area at a price much reduced from the original asking price. Thank you, Mather Company!" -Ann-Marie S.

"We were looking to close quick and everything on The Mather Company's end was correct, on time and ahead of schedule. I would use them again." -Justin L.

"Hart was our realtor last year when we bought our house in July and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. We knew we could trust Hart to keep our best interest at heart, and we were very impressed with his patience and flexibility. I would strongly recommend using the Mather Company!" -Cassidy B.

"Using The Mather Co. for our real estate needs proved to be one of the best experiences we could have asked for, especially because home buying is such a big financial investment that people don't take lightly. Hart Traylor was our real estate agent and we were quite pleased with the effort he put forth in finding us a home that suited our desires and budget. He was very punctual, flexible with showing houses and never pushy to "make a deal". He was also knowledgeable with the legal aspects of the home buying process and that made for a smooth closing for us back in August of 2013." -Lauren S.
