Heather Claxton Savvy + Co. Real Estate

Heather Claxton
Broker, REALTOR®


It all started with a quarter life crisis.

It was my 25th birthday and I was still living in my hometown, Harrisburg, PA. While I loved my town filled with the people I had grown to know and love, I was ready to find a new home.

So my best friend and I began our search. Somewhere exotic but still somewhere in our home of the United States. So it was… St Thomas, USVI! We lasted 5 whole days with our tiny budget trying to start our new lives – somewhere to work, somewhere to live, a place to call home. Our quest continued to Key West, FL, followed by a small island in the middle of Lake Erie. The summer ended, and I found myself searching for what would be next.

While island life was fun and exciting, I was ready to get to a place where I could “slow down” and call home. My sister was living in the Charlotte area, so it was one of my top choices for my next stop. It just seemed to be the right thing to do. It was a welcome place for me.

Early in my Charlotte life I worked for a local real estate developer while attending UNCC studying Anthropology with a minor in Spanish. Then I joined the financial sector. After nearly a decade of working for one of the big banks helping people prepare for their financial future and retirement, I decided that it was time for me to help people in their lives for the here and now – their home, their every day now and in the future.

I have now made my home here with my husband and our dog, Isa. We love all that Charlotte has to offer. Great restaurants, culture, a very dog friendly environment… and who can ignore the proximity to both the mountains and the beaches?

I have joined Savvy + Co. Real Estate because from my own personal experience, I believe that they are what they say, “Nice People, Smart Real Estate.”

I am so excited to help you find your next home, your next hometown, Charlotte.

“Finding the perfect home is one of the most important achievements in an individual’s life. When I decided I was ready to take the step towards “home ownership,” it was extremely important that I worked with someone that would take the time to help me find the perfect place to call home. Heather took the time to figure out what I wanted out of a home, my price range and possible locations and was very dedicated to not only find a condo, but a Condo that was a perfect fit for me. Heather showed me numerous units in the Charlotte area, always made sure to collaborate with me to see what I liked and didn’t like about different locations and was extremely upbeat, warm and helpful throughout the entire process. When I walked into the condo that I now own, I just KNEW it was the right place. I was so excited that I had found a place that was the ideal home for me. During the closing process, Heather was always available to answer questions, help me get things in order and always went above and beyond throughout the entire process. Purchasing a home can be very exciting and stressful, but I must admit Heather’s optimism, dedication and knowledge helped to make the process easy, fun and rewarding. Thanks to Heather, everyday I’m so excited to go home to a place that I love.” – G. Williams, April 2012
