Our Story

Like the Taylors who came before them, each
successive generation is committed to passing on a legacy even more luminous
and promising than the one that was placed in their trust. Taylor Building
Investors together with its predecessor companies has been ranked as the third
oldest real estate investment and management company in Sacramento.
The firm is involved in the development and leasing of
shopping centers, office buildings, warehouses and industrial complexes.
The firm’s attentive and responsive management philosophy is built on a foundation
of strong asset preservation and investment administration, ensuring that each
project is a quality addition to the community it serves.
