Cam Taylor is a boutique real estate agency providing over fifty years of expertise to sellers and buyers in Central Ohio - primarily the North Arc corridor and villages surrounding Downtown Columbus. We are passionate about providing a refined experience for each client’s specific needs. We are proud to be independently owned and operated, which allows our agents greater resources to provide a high level of service. Our affiliation with other top independent brokerages – through Leading Real Estate Companies of The World® – offers both national and global exposure for our listings while providing access to top agencies for buyers purchasing outside our market.
The roots of CamTaylor Realtors® date back to the late 1950’s when the company was under the leadership of Bradley Salt; the company — called Brad Salt Realtors® — was located near downtown, in Bexley, Ohio.
As Columbus grew and more homes were built, especially in the northern suburbs, a branch office opened at 882 High Street, Worthington; our current address. The sales manager selected to lead the office was established agent Campbell Taylor, Jr. Cam partnered with Phil Giessler, a 1968 graduate of The Ohio State University. Under the partnership of Cam and Phil, the company thrived through their shared affinity of working with and for people.
In the early 1970’s, Cam purchased the company from Brad Salt; then in 1997, Phil and his wife, Carol, purchased the company from Cam. Phil chose to keep the CamTaylor Realtors® name and its reputation grew with its continued significant involvement with a group now known as Leading Real Estate Companies of The World®.
Cam and Phil were visionaries in the world of real estate. They were early adopters of cell phones, allowing for 24/7 access to their clients, and have since constantly kept up with standards in technology. They understood real estate is a service industry and traveled all over the country to meet with our fellow Realtors® as members of Leading Real Estate Companies of The World®. As a result of the honest and open communication Phil and Cam fostered, the company grew. Originally having occupied a little yellow converted home on High Street, speedy growth of the company led to building of the current brick building in the late 1980’s.
Phil’s son, Greg Giessler, joined the company as a Sales Associate in 2001. He achieved membership in the 1, 5, 10, and 25 million dollar clubs, and became Broker of Record for CamTaylor in 2011. Greg is an active volunteer in the Columbus area; having served as a member of Leadership for Worthington, Dublin-Worthington Rotary, Worthington Educational Foundation, and devoting his time to mission trips around the world.
In 2018, Greg and his wife, Amy, purchased the company from Phil and Carol. Amy is a successful sales agent herself who has achieved several sales awards and also heads up the company’s Property Management division. She’s known as the glue that holds everything together. Phil remains very active and involved as a Realtor® in the company, and is very pleased about the forward movement initiated by Greg and Amy.
Greg’s goal for Cam Taylor is to be an innovative trend setter while remaining an independent brokerage. He takes pride in continuing to build upon the foundation that was formed by Brad Salt, Cam Taylor, and Phil Giessler as he continues to take the company “one brick higher.”
