Charlotte Savoy
The Savoy Team at Keller Williams Integrity
About Charlotte

Hi! I'm Charlotte Savoy CEO and Realtor at The Savoy Team. Our mission is to build a relationship-driven business that thrives on referrals provided by everyone that we serve. In 2020, The Savoy Team will help 176 families buy or sell a home in Maryland, which will allow us to donate 24,533 meals to hungry kids in Maryland. The truth is that we are here for the relationship with YOU! Not just in the sale or purchase of your home, but a long term relationship! In 2019, our team sold 174 units for $68M in volume and I personally work with our Seller and Buyer clients and have a small but mighty team of rock star agents that are here to serve you at YOUR convenience, not ours! We're in the Top 10 Teams of all brokerages in Maryland. I'm the co-owner of Keller Williams Integrity where we have over 400 agents which gives us access to some of the best listings on the market! I'm also a property investor and my husband has been in home improvements for 25 years, so the eye that my team and I can lend to your home purchase or sale, is unlike most Realtors. I am a native of Howard County and have lived in Maryland for my entire life. I began my real estate career in 1999 as a buyer’s agent on a team and am proud to have established myself as a respected leader & innovator in the industry. From 1999 to 2011, I was a Partner in the Pat Hiban Real Estate Group where we were the #1 team in the world for three years in a row and the top five teams for six years, selling over $1 Billion worth of real estate. Together, Pat and I owned a top-producing Keller Williams Realty office as well. From 2012 to 2016, I worked with the owners of the Five Doors Network of Keller Williams Realty to launch one of the first and most successful expansion teams in the industry. Today, I’m focusing all of my energy on my real estate team in Maryland, The Savoy Team of Keller Williams Realty. My vast knowledge of the real estate industry, commitment to being learning-based and deep commitment to helping my clients achieve their goals through real estate...make me the Agent you want to work with! I am a uniquely experienced agent and leader and I’ve helped more than 4,500 clients with their home sale or purchase while growing some of the largest teams in the world. I have taught other Realtors across the country about leading a successful real estate career, and how they can build a profitable business that thrives in any market while having a fun and balanced life. And maybe most importantly, in 2016 we launched a 501c3 charity that is funded entirely by our Real Estate sales business called “Just ONE Kid”. Our charity is currently feeding 226 kids in local schools, every single weekend and providing school supplies and other needs to those same students and the teachers that serve them. It's the best part of the work that we do! We have a goal of helping 225 families in Central Maryland in 2020! Help us get there and we'll show you an experience that's second to none!

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Oakland?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Oakland?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Oakland, MD.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Oakland?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
