ERA Key President Cheryl Eidinger-Taylor Named to WBJ’s Power 100

Cheryl Eidinger-Taylor

ERA Key President and COO Cheryl Eidinger-Taylor has been named to the Worcester Business Journal's Power 100, which annually recognizes the most influential business leaders in Central Massachusetts. She was previously honored by the WBJ as one of the area's Outstanding Women in Business and as a 40 Under Forty recipient, which recognizes young business leaders. 

2024 Power 100: Cheryl Eidinger-Taylor

By Eric Casey

The last two decades have been a bit of a rollercoaster for the residential real estate industry. First, there was the Great Recession from 2007 to 2009, and now agents in Massachusetts are dealing with an unprecedented surge of prices and declining available inventory.

Despite these hurdles to overcome, Cheryl Eidinger-Taylor has helped turn ERA Key Realty Services into one of the most important firms in the Central Massachusetts residential real estate scene. The firm was responsible for more than 2,000 transactions in 2022, amounting to a sales volume of more than $1 billion, making it one of the largest home real estate companies in the state.

Eidinger-Taylor got her start in 1989, joined ERA Key as a sales consultant in 1990, and is now the firm’s president and chief operating officer, leading a stable of 300+ agents in 15 offices at a time when the residential real estate industry is set to change.

At the end of last year, the National Association of Realtors settled a lawsuit related to the percentage a real estate agent collects from the seller on the sale of a home. While the ramifications of the lawsuit are still largely unknown and will play out after several years, if not decades, the change is expected to impact the business models of...
