Donovan Waddell


Growing up in Columbia, SC, I enjoyed coming to Charlotte for Hornets basketball games, Carowinds, and even a day of shopping at South Park Mall. After high school I played D1 soccer at Presbyterian College and eventually transferred to Clemson University, where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. After college, it was an easy choice to move to uptown Charlotte and make this city I loved so much as a child my new home.

I moved to Charlotte and began teaching in Fort Mill, SC. A year into my teaching career I began researching real estate investing which led me to buy my first home. During my home search, I fell in love with not only the home buying process, but also the exciting Charlotte real estate market.

During my teaching career I prided myself on the service and care I provided my students and I feel so lucky to be a part of Savvy + Co, a firm that does the same for its clients. I am excited to be able to take these skills and help others fall in love with the home buying and selling process like I did!

During my free time, you can catch me at Bank of America Stadium enjoying a Charlotte FC soccer game, exploring Charlotte’s one-of-a-kind neighborhoods with friends (or my dog Edgar), or at the early release of any new Marvel movie.
