About Me


  • CRS




Mirela and her family moved to Cedar Rapids in 1999, and it did not take long for them to call this area home.  Mirela was born and raised in Bucharest, Romania.  Mirela is a Geophysicist by degree, and she practiced her profession within the oil industry prior to moving to Iowa.  She has lived and worked in various places and has traveled extensively.  It is with this worldly experience that she can confidently call the Cedar Rapids area a great place to work and live.   Her work was her passion, and she thought that she would never do anything different, but after engaging herself in this pleasant region of the Midwest, she realized that the quality of life offered by a strong, vibrant and growing Corridor makes this place ideal for her and her family.  Mirela, her husband and their two children love to travel but they also love the fact that there is no better place to come back home.
Mirela has a passion for this community, and with this passion, she won’t just help you find your new home, but will eagerly help you discover all the wonderful community attributes that will make the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City area the place you will want to call home for years to come.   

Whether you are relocating to our area from another part of the country or from a different part of the world, or, just move across town; whether you are looking to buy or sell your first home or you’ve done this a few times, I would be privileged to serve and assist you through every step of the process.  A significant part of my business comes from referrals from past clients and I will strive to provide that same level of excellent service to you and to make the whole transaction a smooth and stress-free one.

"All of our expectations were met in working with Mirela from start to finish! From purchasing our home in 2009 during our relocation to Iowa to moving back to our home state of Wisconsin in 2013, she exceeded the service and response that you expect when working with a Realtor. While listing and selling our house in the Spring of 2013, she went above and beyond to accommodate us with telephone and email correspondences when we were already living in WI. She watched our house, watered our plants and kept it looking in showing condition; the house sold quickly so we could not have asked for a better experience. We are still recommending her to friends who are living in the area as we know that they will also share a wonderful home buying experience!"

– Amanda and Mark Matczynski, November 2014

"We worked with Mirela last summer to find our home. She was easy to talk to, understood what we were looking for and was always available for questions. We bought a foreclosed home which can add more difficulty to the buying process and she did a great job of organizing the communication between us and the seller. She was great to work with and I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family."

– Jennifer and Jordan Forkner, November 2014

"Thank you Mirela for your professionalism and endless attention to our need for a quick sale. We are grateful to have been referred to you and have an excepted offer in a WEEK! Thanks again!"

– Kerry and Debbie Johnson, March 2014

"Buying our first home seemed overwhelming at times, and we're so very grateful to have had Mirela's expertise on our side. Mirela was very helpful, extremely knowledgeable, and always quick to respond to our many questions. She made buying our first home enjoyable and easy, and we can't recommend her enough!"

– Ryan and Claire Olson

"We used Mirela Taylor as our agent when we relocated to CR. She proved to be one of the most reliable agents I have ever dealt with. She did a very good job in trying to understand the needs of the client. She was very accessible and always willing to adjust her schedule to fit our needs. She was not shy to give her expert opinion on the various properties we toured, and this proved to be very valuable. I would definitely recommend her for anyone looking for a Real Estate Agent in CR."

– Primus Mutasingwa

"Mirela worked hard from start to finish and always provided us with the negotiation edge to save us money on our home purchase. I am very pleased with her effort, professionalism, and knowledge. Well done. Thank you Mirela, we love our new home!"

– Richard and Carol Kollath

"We didn't know what to expect when buying our first house. Mirela made time for us to view homes despite our busy schedules. She was very helpful during the planning stages, pointed out many things that we would have overlooked while looking at the individual houses, and was helpful when we finally decided on and purchased our house. We would recommend Mirela to anyone looking to purchase a house based on our wonderful experience."

– Mark and Mandy Matczynski

“We were immensely satisfied with our interactions with Mirela and the wealth of real estate knowledge she provided us which enabled us to find the perfect home for our needs in a desirable neighborhood. We would strongly recommend Mirela to our friends for the great professional service she provides."

– Vijay and Rupa Sethna

“We really enjoyed working with Mirela in the hunt for our first home. She was very helpful in finding homes that suited our list of needs and wants. We appreciated her honesty when viewing homes that she believed were not for us. We first met Mirela when we went to an open house that she was hosting, and even though she was not our Realtor at the time and didn't even know we were looking for one, she offered us a lot of really useful advice on effectively searching for a house and things to ask when looking for home loan vendors. Mirela adds a personal touch, keeps in touch, and remembers you on special occasions. She helped us find our perfect house. We would highly recommend Mirela!”

– Derek and Cassie Koenigsaecker

"We worked seven months with Mirela and were impressed of her professional approach. She provided us all the needed and important information, and offered valuable hints along the way. She even took the time to work with my wife to create ideas on how to make this the house of our dreams. In addition to assisting us with the process of building and purchasing the home we wanted, Mirela was kind enough to help me with the relocation process in the move from Kansas to Cedar Rapids. She arranged my stay in a hotel for a discounted price, and she helped me find apartments to rent among other things. Mirela is smart and intelligent. She gave us the opportunity to see what a good real estate agent can do in a real life. We have had past experience in buying and selling homes, but we were never as happy with any agent as we were with Mirela! I am 100% recommending Mirela as a great and creative real estate agent. Give her a try at least! You won’t regret it, I am sure."

– Taras and Lyuda Dunduchenko

"Working with Mirela was a wonderful experience! Three words come to mind when I think of Mirela: professional, positive, and intelligent. She is very knowledgeable as she answered every question we had without fail. Her years of experiences gave us the utmost confidence to go with any advice she provided us and was very positive and supportive when it came to our thoughts and opinions. Mirela was always available it seems like, as we would send a text or email and get a response within minutes. It was a lot of fun working with Mirela and we plan to work with her in the future. We would recommend her to anyone without any reservations."
