Savvy + Co. Real Estate is Proud to Announce Jenny Hassid Johnson has Joined the Brokerage as Broker-in-Charge

Bringing her unique perspective to enhance its offerings, Jenny is committed to continuing Savvy + Co.’s focus on providing excellent service and resources to both its agents and clients.

Savvy + Co. Real Estate is pleased to announce that Jenny Hassid Johnson has joined as Broker-in-Charge. With a keen eye for design, an understanding of the Charlotte-area real estate, and a passion for educating and empowering others, Jenny is a perfect addition to the Savvy + Co. team.

A first-generation American, Jenny’s grandfather, a successful architect from Cairo, immigrated to America. He attended college at Harvard University where he received his Ph.D. He then went on to start the Ph.D. department at The University of California, Berkeley.

Jenny was raised in Texas and attended the University of Houston, where she majored in psychology and architecture during her undergraduate studies. After graduation, she attended graduate school for architectural design. Jenny comes from a long line of successful architects.

When she came to Charlotte, she worked with firms such as Shook Kelley and Odell on projects ranging from large mixed-use developments to hospitals to the Jewish Community Center.

Although she loved her job, Jenny wasn’t in love with the hours. A desire to be more present with her children inspired her to sign up for real estate classes. She received her license in 2014.

“I fell in love with residential real estate,” said Jenny. “The best way to describe it is that you’re doing life with others. You’re helping people find a home and a sense of home. I loved using my architectural design background to help buyers see a different side of every home. I also loved sharing my unique insight with other agents and helping them to see a home in a new light.”

It would be serendipitous moments that lead Jenny to the Broker-in-Charge position with Savvy + Co. From a neighbor mentioning the Broker-in-Charge position to finding a dream home that was the perfect shade of “Savvy blue” to a Savvy agent reaching out to her with a question, everything fell into place.

“I’ve always paid attention to Savvy. I love their branding, and they always seem to have something up their sleeve. When Dana (Burleson) called me, I asked her about the role, and she said that I would be a great fit. That day Lexie Longstreet, one of the owners of Savvy + Co. Real Estate, called me, and we discussed the role. That call, and all the events leading up to it, made deciding to join Savvy that much easier.”

“We’re thrilled that Jenny will be joining our leadership team as our new Broker-in-Charge,” said Julie Tambussi, VP of Marketing and Strategic Growth of Savvy + Co. Real Estate. “Her market expertise, extensive industry knowledge, and hands-on experience, particularly in training and mentoring agents, will be a tremendous asset to Savvy + Co. and our clients. She has an impressive track record of helping agents grow their businesses and achieve their goals. We couldn’t be more excited to have such an inspiring and committed leader on our team.”

Jenny’s role as Broker-in-Charge will include training and acting as a resource for agents, as well as continuing to grow the overall Savvy + Co. brand.

“I’m excited to work with the agents at Savvy + Co. I take a very hands-on approach in my role as Broker-in-Charge. I treat the agents I work with the same as I would a client and look forward to helping them in any way that I can.”
