Taryn Phillips, Principal of Priority Residential, is a fully licensed real estate agent, working as an award-winning salesperson for other Agencies prior to establishing her own business in 2016.
Ambitious, driven and the consummate professional, Taryn utilises her personal passion for property and her competitive ‘can-do’ attitude to maximum capacity to ensure her clients achieve the ultimate outcomes, with no exceptions.
Taryn facilitates the entire process from appraisal through to settlement as smoothly as possible, keeping her clients fully informed and engaged with all activity at each step along the way. A warm communicator with a friendly demeanour, she is able to establish a good rapport with her clients, and quickly earn their trust.
Always interested in the impact technology can have on marketing platforms and strategies, Taryn is up-to-date with the changes in this fast-moving environment, so that Priority Residential’s clients receive the optimum exposure in a polished, professional campaign.
“After more than 12 years working at other agencies, I felt it was time to set up my own boutique agency that offered a genuine point of difference. At Priority Residential we not only list, sell and manage properties, but we also directly assist our clients with presentation.
We have a team of hand-picked cleaners and tradespeople that can deal with any minor issues to ensure your property shines from day one. We absolutely know how critical perfect presentation is when a property is launched; it impacts levels of enquiry, and ultimately price. A well-presented property creates a heightened perception of quality and value.”
A resident of Chermside, as both a home owner and investor, Taryn is well connected in the local community. When not working she enjoys keeping active, playing touch football, going to the gym, and surfing. A keen animal lover Taryn has selected the RSPCA to be a beneficiary of Priority Residential’s corporate sponsorship.
Beth Lagos joined Priority Residential after working for nearly a decade for a larger franchise group; attracted to the boutique nature of Priority, and owner Taryn’s business model and ethics, Beth is a perfect fit for this talented team.
A prolific networker, Beth is a warm and engaging communicator, a savvy marketer; and she liaises with her clients regularly to ensure they are informed and comfortable with the direction and execution of the campaign.
Beth shares Priority Residential’s focus on the importance of presentation when launching a property to market; and pays unwavering attention to every detail to ensure that the property shines from the very first day of the campaign, to attract high volumes of enquiry and secure the maximum price.
“I see the potential in every home and understand that making some (often minor) changes can have a positive impact on price. Every home is special; real estate is about selling the benefits, unlocking the potential, and generating an outcome that ultimately results in clients that have reached, or exceeded their property goal.
I love being part of this process – the facilitator, marketer, and negotiator. There is nothing more motivating and uplifting than delivering good news; it gives you a natural high that I can’t imagine replicated in any other job.”
Beth is a valued team member, a high-performing agent who is respected and well-liked by her colleagues and clients alike. She is a real asset to Priority Residential and looks forward to being an integral part of its ongoing success.
When not working Beth has a range of hobbies that keep her active and has a busy social life to ensure she doesn’t become a ‘workaholic’ – she believes a healthy work/life balance is essential to longevity in this competitive industry.

He also loves the very ‘personal’ nature of the business; meeting new people, helping them to reach their objectives and overcome challenges.
“Real Estate is a refreshing change for me; every day is different, and every property is unique. I enjoy the human face of the industry very much, where numbers are only a part of a much bigger equation. It’s incredibly rewarding to assist someone to fulfil their property goals – whether adding to an investment portfolio, selling their family home, or buying their dream property.”
I very much value the trust that my client’s place in me to handle such a valued asset; I always aim to exceed expectations, and work tirelessly to make that happen.

I joined Taryn and the team at Priority Residential, because her values and business ethos align very much with my own. She is dynamic, forward-thinking, and has an outstanding property brain.”
