After graduating from NC State, Catherine {Cacky} Hunter Brown went to work for Ferguson Bath, Kitchen, and Lighting Gallery in Raleigh, helping custom builders, designers and homeowners with plumping, lighting and appliance selections. She followed the job to Charlotte and was ready for a change when she got a tip from her sister who was about to leave her job working as a real estate assistant to Savvy-co founder Lexie Longstreet. “This could be a great opportunity for you,” her sister said. Lexie and Cacky met and she got the job.

While her knowledge of the home industry was a decided asset, Lexie suggested that Cacky get her real estate license to better understand the lifecycle of a real estate transaction from listing to closing. After becoming a licensed agent, she soon made her first sale when her new sister-in-law & her husband moved to Charlotte.

Despite the excitement of her first sale, Cacky is devoted to her role as Lexie’s assistant. Part of the time she is out in the field, sprucing up Lexie’s listings and getting homes ready to go on the market. Once Lexie has a contract in the works, Cacky steps up to the more serious side of the business, acting as liaison between the buyer, seller and lender. She also is responsible for scheduling contractors and inspections, completing paperwork and keeping the closing process on schedule.

“I really do love the home industry and working with homes and homeowners,” Cacky says in the conference room of Savvy’s original location in a restored historic cottage in the Elizabeth neighborhood. “It’s a very satisfying & rewarding career.”
