Mark-Taylor Expands Valet Living Amenity Throughout Its Phoenix Area Portfolio


Mark-Taylor has partnered with Valet Living, the only nationally recognized full-service amenities provider to the multifamily housing industry, to adopt its Valet Living Home amenity service platform across 34 of its Mark-Taylor premium rental communities. Mark-Taylor was an early adopter of the proprietary mobile app that connects residents with trusted Home Valets to deliver best in-class amenity services including: fitness classes, package delivery with added options for in-home drop-off, pet visits (including dog walking), dry cleaning, home cleaning and on-demand trash collection.  

“Mark-Taylor was a natural partner for Valet Living given the enhanced value it provides to residents and on-site property management teams,” said Shawn Handrahan, CEO and President at Valet Living. “With such high download rates of the Valet Living Home app for new residents, we are excited to accelerate growth and expand the presence of Valet Living Home in the southwestern region.”

Research from Valet Living reveals that on average, more than 83 percent of new residents download the Valet Living Home app, and 64 percent place an order, based on recent case studies from its full-service locations. These findings prove that residential demand extends beyond the norm of basic amenities, to help residents live more enjoyable lives, including spending more time with family and friends, instead of worrying about daunting household chores.

“As a staple of luxury residential living in Phoenix, we are thrilled to be partnering with Valet Living to enhance the Mark-Taylor experience and elevate our residents’ quality of life,” said John Carlson, President of Mark-Taylor Residential. “We are a forward-thinking company that is always looking to provide our residents with the richest residential living experience possible, evidenced by being the first adopter of the Valet Living Doorstep amenity and Valet Living Home in Arizona. Our residents trust that they will be cared for and provided with amenity services that are comprehensive, convenient, accessible and of superior quality.”

With decades of experience, Valet Living is a trusted brand that is respected and integrated by property managers nationwide, to further add value for their residents. To learn more about Valet Living, please visit
